The current carry player for Team Liquid, Michael "miCKe" Vu and the carry player for Nigma Galaxy Amer "Miracle-" Al-Barkawi are considered to be two of the most skilled players in the world.
Popular Dota 2 streamer Janne "Gorgc" Stefanovski commented on both players and who he thinks is more skilled currently.
Gorgc believes that m1CKe is a better laner than Miracle nowadays.

Team Liquid and Nigma Galaxy are two popular Dota 2 teams and as a result they come about in topics of discussion within the Dota 2 community. Team Liquid is the highest ranking team in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) rankings and in the DPC Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2: Division I standings, and is considered to be the best team in the world currently. Nigma Galaxy was recently relegated to Division II after the end of the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2: Division I games, however, the team has been invited to the ongoing Dreamleague Season 19 to replace PSG.LGD due to visa issues.

Team Liquid is having an extremely impressive run at Dreamleague Season 19, with 7 game wins and only 1 loss. In contrast, Nigma Galaxy is struggling despite the addition of Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi and sit at the bottom half of the ranks in its group. Popular Dota 2 streamer Janne “Gorgc” Stefanovski recently commented on Liquid's Miracle- and Nigma's miCKe in terms of who is the better laner and who is more skilled at the moment.

Miracle- not good enough at the moment?

In Gorgc’s recent livestream, the popular streamer believes he has a controversial opinion regarding Miracle- and m1CKe, commenting on which player he believes is better. According to the streamer, m1CKe is a better laner than Miracle- currently. “I will say this - controversial take for some people in chat but miCKe is probably a better laner nowadays than Miracle-. He is like literally one of the best laners out there. He is scary right now. I said it, miCKe is beasting right now. He is in form,” Gorgc said.

“I can't believe it's controversial that I say that about a guy in Division II, that's on a break and a guy that's in the best team in the world, Liquid. But still, you know, its just true, miCKe is just insane right now. He’s mental, he might even be my number one laner currently on safelane,” the streamer added to his initial statement.

Team Liquid and its players have definitely earned the right to be called the best in the world at the moment by standing atop the DPC rankings and the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2: Division I standings. Miracle-, on the other hand, has been hailed as one of the most mechanically gifted players in the world, but his current performance with Nigma Galaxy, at Dreamleague Season 19 as a stand-in, has not lived up to expectations.
