Nigma Galaxy has officially parted ways with coach Roman "rmN-" Paley after 3 years staying with the roster.
rmN- coached the roster since early 2019, as the former Team Liquid roster managed to achieve second place at The International 2019 (TI9) under his guidance.

The roster shuffle season has officially started to gain traction in the Western European (WEU) region as Nigma Galaxy announces that it has officially parted ways with team coach Roman "rmN-" Paley. RmN- was recruited by team captain Kuro "KuroKy" Takhasomi back in 2019, as the team needed a coach to help them with drafting issues amongst other things.

Team Liquid ‘s roster in 2019 was not to be trifled with, as the team managed to win the MDL Macau 2019 as well as top two finishes at three different LAN events, including The International 2019 (TI9).

rmN- departs Nigma Galaxy after three years of service

“Today we're parting ways with @rmN_dota. Thank you Roman for everything you've done over the past 3 years and we wish you the best of luck💙💜” Nigma Galaxy wrote in a tweet as it expressed gratitude to its coach.

Following the announcement, Nigma Galaxy have officially joined the roster shuffle season as it made its first big change for the upcoming season. As the former Team Liquid roster needed a coach to assist them with drafting issues among other things following Lee "Heen" Seung Gon’s departure in 2018, team captain Kuro "KuroKy" Takhasomi decided to recruit rmN- as Heen’s replacement.

During his only year with Team Liquid, rmN- managed to coach Team Liquid to victory at MDL Macau 2019 while also helping the team to achieve multiple top two finishes at MDL Disneyland Paris Major 2019 & EPICENTER Major 2019. He also managed to help the roster to its second ever Grand Finals appearance at The International 2019 (TI9) however the team was defeated by OG 3-1.

Following the conclusion of TI9, rmN- left Team Liquid in favor of KuroKy’s newly established Nigma Galaxy organization based in Abu Dhabi. While the team continued to achieve success in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic saw a slight decrease in Nigma Galaxy’s performances. Additionally, the following two years have not been kind to Nigma Galaxy as it failed to qualify for The International twice on top of mediocre performances regionally and internationally.

While Nigma Galaxy has officially announced its first change within its roster, the organization might have already concluded its transfer window according to Maroun "GH" Merhej in a recent update. The Lebanese support stated that most of the players will be sticking around for 2023, however it is yet to be determined if Nigma Galaxy will undergo roster changes.
