After filling in the carry role for Nigma Galaxy, the organization announced that Amer “Miracle-” Al-Barkawi will return to his break after the team’s DreamLeague Season 19 campaign.
Miracle- put his well-deserved break on pause when Nigma Galaxy needed someone to take over the spot vacated by Ammar “ATF” Al-Assaf, who was placed in the team’s inactive list.
“Thank you, Miracle. Enjoy the rest of your break,” said Nigma Galaxy in a post.
The 25-year-old Dota 2 legend showed glimpses of his old, deadly form but it was not enough to help Nigma Galaxy get past the first group stage. They finished seventh in Group B with a 1-2-4 win-loss-draw record.
Last December, Nigma Galaxy announced that Miracle- will be taking a break due to health reasons.
Without the former The International champion, the team struggled mightily in the Dota Pro Circuit 2023 Western Europe.
Nigma Galaxy started the year with a subpar performance in Tour 1, finishing at sixth place with a 2-5 standing before eventually dropping out of Division I in the second tour following a last place finish (2-5).
The team will compete in Division II in the last and final tour of the year.
