Ammar "ATF" Al-Assaf, a former player of Nigma Galaxy, has recently joined Quest Esports (previously known as Ooredoo Thunders) on loan. It is unclear why ATF decided to leave Nigma Galaxy, but the team did have a disappointing run in the Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) Western Europe (WEU) 2023 Tour 2 Division I, finishing in the bottom 2 and being relegated to Division II.

Nigma Galaxy's midlane player, Sumail "SumaiL" Hassan, also played as a stand-in for Chinese powerhouse Team Aster and was recently announced to have joined Team Aster on loan. In similar fashion, Nigma Galaxy is now losing another player in ATF, who will be playing for Quest Esports.

Nigma Galaxy loses another player

After Nigma Galaxy's disappointing performance in the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2 Division I, many fans were speculating whether some players would leave the team. ATF, who played as a flexible carry/offlane player for the team, has now joined Quest Esports on loan. Quest Esports, previously known as Ooredoo Thunders, is a team that has been making a name for itself in the European Dota 2 scene. The team finished in the top 5 of the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2 Division I standings, narrowly missing out on a spot in the Berlin Major.

Quest Esports performed well in the DPC WEU 2023 Tour 2 Division I, managing to take some games off the best teams in the world like Gaimin Gladiators and Team Liquid. The team announced that it was parting ways with its offlaner Faruk "Wuiter" Terci in late April, and fans were speculating about the replacement for the team. With the team’s recent announcement of ATF joining the roster, fans will be excited to watch how the young offlaner performs in a new team in the next DPC tour.
