Following Nigma's fourth series victory in the WEU DPC 2021-22 Tour 3: Division 2, offlaner Ivan Borislavov "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov stated why the team's synergy and results have improved.
According to MinD_ContRoL, the change can be ascribed to Nigma's newest member, Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan, who has quickly fit into the squad. SumaiL has also contributed to the team's increased confidence and improved performance in-game.
Nigma is moving towards the top finish based on its performance thus far in Division 2, having not dropped a single game in the four series it has played.

Although Division 2 is certainly less competitive than Division 1, Nigma Galaxy has fared much better in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) 2021-22 Tour 3 than it did last season in Division 1. In the wake of Nigma's fourth series victory in Tour 3 Division 2, offlaner Ivan Borislavov "MinD_ContRoL" Ivanov explained the potential reason behind the positive changes in atmosphere and results. According to MinD_ContRoL, this upswing is attributed to the newest member of Nigma, Syed Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan, who has fit in very quickly with the team. Moreover, SumaiL has helped the team improve its game, he further added.

MinD_ContRoL talks about playing with SumaiL

As Nigma dominated Brame 2-0 in Tour 3 Division 2, MinD_ContRoL came for the post-match winner’s interview. As a result of the team's dominating wins in Tour 3 coupled with the smiles on the team cams throughout the games, MinD_ContRoL was asked what had changed in the team since last season.

In his talk, MinD_ContRoL expressed how enjoyable it is to play games with SumaiL, who not only fit into the team perfectly but also played a major role in building confidence and providing help during games.

“I mean, we just feel very good with SumaiL like - for sure. He’s giving us much more confidence but it’s more about we fit together really good. I feel like he is helping us to play the game better like us four. I don’t even know how to explain it. It just feels very good. He is helping us a lot, in-game especially.”

Nigma is moving towards the top finish based on its performance thus far, having not dropped a single game in the four series it has played. It has scarcely been challenged in any of these series and has proven to be far too powerful for the opponents.

This result is in stark contrast to Nigma's previous season, when it lost every single series to end with a poor 0-7 record leading to its demotion to Division 2.

However, as it stands, Nigma is currently poised to finish unbeaten in Division 2 unless it meets unprecedentedly strong competition from its last three opponents. Into The Breach is another unbeaten team so far, and MinD_ContRoL stated during the interview that the series versus them would feature "good games."

“They (Into The Breach) are looking like the strongest opponent for now in Division 2. So, I am expecting very good games against them,” he said.

The Into The Breach matchup will be the last series of Division 2 on July 13th. However, the next Nigma series will arguably be the most exciting of all, taking place on 2nd July against the streamer team of Team Bald Reborn.
