Nigma Galaxy has once again made a change to its Dota 2 roster.

The prominent Middle Eastern organization once again shifts its roster, parting ways with position 4 player, Farith "Matthew" Puente. This roster change takes place after the team competed in the massive online tournament, Elite League. Matthew's replacement has yet to be revealed.

Nigma Galaxy announced the departure of Matthew on its socials, stating that his trial period has ended. "Our trial period with Matthew has ended and we mutually decided to part ways," the post reads.

Matthew departs Nigma Galaxy after poor results in Elite League

The 19th of April marks the final day Matthew represented for Nigma Galaxy. The South American player first joined the team in January 2024 but it seems like the squad didn't have a convincing chemistry. Nigma Galaxy participated in their first and only tournament so far, Elite League, after making it through the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) qualifier. They had a decent early performance but quickly crashed from the second day onward.

Nigma hasn't been doing particularly well in the past years, but a 20th-22nd placement at Elite League is just as sour. Following this result, the team will move forward with a new position 4 in place. This roster shift is taken with mixed reactions from the community. Many fans felt like Matthew performed well in their recent games and his departure is not expected. But Nigma Galaxy is also notorious for their constant roster adjustments and their struggle to find a solid lineup.

Matthew announces that he is now looking for a team. He also expressed gratitude for his time with Nigma Galaxy.

Will GH return to Nigma Galaxy?

With Matthew now away from the team, Nigma Galaxy is left with a vacant slot in the fourth position. A lot of fans are now asking if GH, the veteran long-time pos 4 for Nigma Galaxy, will make his return. He had taken a break from competitive Dota 2 to spend his time with his family and loved ones. But will he make a return after five months of hiatus? We'll have to keep our eyes peeled for the announcement of Nigma Galaxy's complete roster.
