Team Nigma recently moved Aliwi ‘W33’ Omar to its inactive roster position and started looking for the fifth member. The team finally fills the place with a Russian Carry player Igor ‘iLTW’ Filatov. The organization officially announced the signing of the professional through its Twitter account. ILTW will play with Team Nigma for its Carry position to get the ticket to the second season of the Dota Pro Circuit Upper-Division League in the region. Nigma now hopes for an amazing run at the second season after a devastating end to season 1.

The Singapore Major
Recently, Team Nigma had a poor run at the previous Singapore Major or the first Major of the season of DPC 2021. The team faced elimination at the Wild Card stage of the tournament and could not bag any DPC points. Due to early elimination, the team decided to drop W33 from the roster and move him to the inactive list. The team announced farewell to W33 through a Twitter post saying that they wished good luck to the professional. They will move W33 to their inactive roster and he can look for any opportunity he can find. Omar has participated and given so much to Nigma, and the team is overwhelmed by his time with them.
History of ILTW
It seems like ILTW is a great addition to the official roster of Team Nigma. The Russian professional is a well-established Carry player in the competitive scene of the game. The professional started his run back in 2019 with Team OG. However, his stay with OG only lasted for three months. Now, the professional gets another opportunity to play with a European stack and stay in one of the most competitive regions of the game.
Qualify for TI?
Team Nigma currently holds 200 DPC points, due to finishing third in the Upper-Division of the first season. However, this is the last chance for all the teams out there to secure as many points as they can to qualify for The International 10. Teams are struggling hard into the Major tournaments to earn enough DPC points to get a direct invitation to the TI. Team Nigma still lacks enough points to get a direct invitation to the TI. However, if the team now represents some classics, it can have the chance to do so.
Nigma’s Current Roster
After paying farewell to W33 from the team, Team Nigma’s official roster gets a new member. The new roster includes Amer ‘Miracle-’ Al-Barqawi, Maroun ‘GH’ Merhej, Kuro ‘KuroKy’ Salehi Takhasomi, Igor ‘ILTW’ Filatov, and Ivan ‘Mind_Control’ Borislavov Ivanov.
The team now looks very strong and can do wonders in the upcoming season 2. In a few days, Nigma has several matches against some of the strongest teams like Team Secret. Fans will get the chance to see a new Nigma playing. We hope that Nigma performs better than before, as the team is a favorite for many fans. Let’s see if Nigma can manage to get enough DPC points to get to the TI 10.
