Nigma Galaxy's offlaner Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf appeared on popular Dota 2 streamer Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski’s livestream to discuss the team's recent Division II relegation.
ATF discusses the current vibe within the team, stating that “off-season vibes are good”.
The player also said that it is still disappointing to be relegated to Division II and be unable to make it to the Berlin Major 2023.

After a disappointing run in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2: Division I recently, Nigma Galaxy has recently been relegated to Division II. Following this, the most recent addition to the team, Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf appeared on Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski’s livestream and provided some insights into the atmosphere of the team after its relegation to Division II.

ATF says off-season vibes are good in the team

During the stream, Nigma Galaxy player ATF shared their thoughts on the team's recent performance and dynamics within the team. ATF said that he did not ask about the team’s thoughts on Dreamleague Season 19 and the Riyadh Masters 2023, as he just wanted to focus on the DPC and make it to the Berlin Major 2023. “Yea, I dint ask really (about the team’s thoughts on Dreamleague Season 19). I was more focused on DPC you know, Div I and go to the Major (Berlin Major 2023),” ATF said. 

The Nigma Galaxy player also talked about the vibes in the team. “Off-season vibes are good. Feel bad of course to go to Division II instead of the Major,” he added.

While the team had disappointing results after making it to the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2: Division I after a strong performance in Division II of the previous tour, it is still important for them to consistently perform and improve over the next few months in order to make it to The International 11 (TI11). With the team being invited last-minute to Dreamleague Season 19, it gives them an opportunity to play against the best teams around the world and refine their skills for the upcoming DPC season. However, ATF will be unable to join the team at the tournament as he has been moved to the inactive roster of the tournament due to Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi re-joining the roster temporarily from his break.
