KuroKy hasn’t played with the team since June due to an arm injury. Since then, Nigma has played three tournaments without the caption - two seasons of OGA Dota PIT League and OMEGA League Dota 2: Europe Immortal Division. The team coach Roman "rmN-" Paley has been filling shoes of KuroKy in his absence with whom Nigma won the second season of OGA Dota PIT, placed third at OMEGA League: Europe Immortal Division and 7-8th place at the recently concluded third season of OGA Dota PIT.
rmN- will continue to play as a replacement for KuroKy at ESL One Germany as well which has already commenced. The tournament boasts a massive prize pool of $400,000. Nigma will play their first game of the event tomorrow OCT. 7th against Yellow Submarine at 5 PM CET.
