Team Nigma is a professional esports Dota 2. The team formed in 2019, after five former Team Liquid players decided to create an organization of their own and rebrand under the leadership of KuroKy. Four members of the team have won the largest Dota 2 event - The International (Dota 2) under the previous banner of Team Liquid. The word "Nigma" has Arabic words and means "Star".[1]



Team Nigma is one of the newer Dota 2 teams, despite its members being Dota 2 veterans. After achieving second place at the The International 2019 to OG (esports), on November 25, 2019 the former Team Liquid players Miracle-, w33, MinD_ContRoL, Gh, and KuroKy gathered and created an organization of their own which they later called Team Nigma.
