Nigma Galaxy might bring in the carry player to replace Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf, who left the club recently and joined Quest Esports
Nigma Galaxy’s DPC journey has been a rough ride. They got relegated to Division II in Tour 2 and had an underwhelming 13th – 14th finish at DreamLeague Season 19. The team's eleventh-hour invitation to replace PSG.LGD, who encountered visa difficulties, did little to alter their fortunes. Now, with the departures of Sumail “SumaiL” Hassan and Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf, who have joined Team Aster and Quest Esports respectively, the team's future hangs in uncertainty.
D1 Hustlers (formerly D2 Hustlers), on the contrary, left a lasting impression in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2 Division II, delivering a standout performance that culminated in a top 2 finish and a promotion to the highly competitive Division I.
Promoting into div 1 this season has been an incredibly hard journey for us, but we have no plans on slowing down! However we want to push ourselves to the limit, but in order for us to do that, we need support from an org, both financially and mentally.

In an unexpected turn of events, the team took to Twitter to disclose the departure of their carry player, Yuma “Yuma” Langlet. There has been no official news regarding Yuma’s future destination, but his ex-colleague Egor “Xakoda” Lipartiya has dropped some hints.
Our Div 1 journey begins soon, but unfortunately it’ll be without our beloved @yumadota . We wish him the best of luck in his career and we hope to see him competing with us! pic.twitter.com/7glt4AHz4A

Is Yuma Nigma Galaxy Bound?
A Telegram message sent from Xakoda shed light on the future team prospects for Yuma. According to Xakoda's message, Yuma was ‘called' by none other than Nigma Galaxy, and after careful contemplation, he found it to be a more promising path for his career. With this development, Yuma stands on the brink of potentially joining forces with the formidable trio of Kuro “KuroKy” Takhasomi, Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov, and Maroun “GH” Merhej at Nigma Galaxy.
The message translates as follows:
“Hey guys, just a quick update on our team's situation. Yuma has been invited to join Nigma Galaxy, and since the organization gave us a long answer about bootcamp and conditions he decided that it would be better for him. No offense, I wish him luck. I'm sure Yuma will be able to play on the Tier 1 scene in the future, and we will meet again as teammates. Regarding the organization – we'll know tonight and I will let you know if everything is okay or not. Take care.”
