Kuro ‘KuroKy’ Salehi Takhasomi and his teammates from Dota 2 team Liquid left the North American organization after finishing second and losing to Red Bull OG at The International 2019 (TI9) earlier this year. Now they have announced the formation of a new independent Dota 2 team, called Nigma.
However, this is the exact same team roster from Team Liquid at TI9. This is a new path forged by the team that last won The International 2017 and regain their past glories. Nigma will probably be looking to compete in the Chengdu Major, which will take place from 24 to 26 November 2019.
In the meantime, the name of their team will likely continue being the butt of everyone’s jokes, with comments like “Nigma Balls (Lick my balls)” and other meme-worthy digs at the newly-formed team.
