Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan has been a prominent figure in the Dota 2 scene for several years, competing in some of the biggest teams in the world including the likes of Evil Geniuses, Team Secret, OG, and most recently Nigma Galaxy. He has been a part of Nigma Galaxy's roster since May 2022 but recently played for Team Aster as a stand-in at the ESL One Berlin Major 2023, where he managed a Top 8 finish despite the language barrier. SumaiL's impressive display at the tournament caught the attention of many Dota 2 fans, who were eagerly waiting to see where the player would go next. However, a recent tweet from Nigma Galaxy has come as a surprise to many, as the organization announced that SumaiL will be released from their roster.
