Nigma Galaxy, a prominent name in the competitive Dota 2 scene, has made a significant move in reshaping its roster. With the ESL One Birmingham qualifier on the horizon, the team bids farewell to Daniel “Ghost” Chan and Roman “rmN-” Paley, welcoming Farith “Matthew” Puente and Saieful “Fbz” Ilham as their replacements.
The New Faces of Nigma Galaxy
Farith “Matthew” Puente – A New Venture into Uncharted Territories
Matthew, hailing from South America, has a commendable track record with teams like Thunder Awaken, Evil Geniuses, and BOOM Esports. His journey with Nigma Galaxy marks his first foray outside his home region, bringing a fresh perspective to the team’s dynamics.
Saieful “Fbz” Ilham – The Veteran from Southeast Asia
Fbz, a seasoned player from Southeast Asia, has played with powerhouse teams, including a notable stint with Team Secret. His experience in international play and his recent endeavors with Among Us and attempts at qualifying for BetBoom Dacha 2024 and DreamLeague Season 22 add significant value to Nigma Galaxy’s roster.
