Nigma kept w33 on their roster despite the fact they failed to qualify for both the last Major/Minor from the year before and they couldn't even beat Secret for pretty much an entire year. If you can't even be the best in your region, what good is your roster as a top team? The competition gets even tougher when you leave your region so if something is not working in your region, it's time to make changes. During the last DPC league, they had a new roster and they refused to bootcamp even though important Major slots and DPC points were on the line. Where is the professionalism on this team? Nigma is run like a fucking joke and their results are a fucking joke. The only team run as unprofessionally as Nigma is OG and that bar is so obscenely low that it just makes Nigma look worse.
Kuro used to be much more hard working than this but after he won TI, he relaxed and now he's running one of the laziest teams in Dota. Does this guy seriously need to watch everything fall apart around him in order for him to figure out that he needs to get his shit together? He has a highly skilled team that's mostly been with him since 2016/2017 and instead of fighting to keep it, he does everything in his power to sabotage it. Dota isn't a family, it's not a circle of friendship, and it's not a fucking charity. If you fail to meet your obligations, expect to lose the things that you took for granted. Competition is cutthroat and if you want to live in some fantasy where your team is "family", you need to the results to keep that delusion alive for both yourself and the fans. Nigma is on the brink on total collapse and that all could've been prevented if this team took their careers seriously and didn't lose to fucking Alliance and Liquid.
What results has this team achieved in the past two years? 3rd in their region? A year of getting dumpstered by Secret? Winning a fucking Minor? Look at Nigma's results lately and tell me how often top rosters stay together with these results. Even if they manage to qualify for TI, there is no positive way to spin that. They never should've been in the qualifiers in the first place.

I mean they played pretty bad to be honest, but come on juuto, your rant is way over the top....these guys still tried their best and you call them an embarrassment? You think they didnt want to win and compete at TI? Maybe they will never reach that TI 7 level again, if thats the case, you gotta accept that as well. Competition is tough and you cant always stay on top. dont forget old Liquid was one of the most consistent teams of all time....
They didn't bootcamp for the last league and they kept w33 on their roster even though they failed to qualify for events last season. They only try their best when it's too late.
TI invites this year were not a tough competition at all. They were practically charity invites.

What an embarrassment of a team honestly. EU invites were a fucking charity and yet they still managed to fail to get an invite. Getting 3rd place with teams like Alliance and Liquid above you is a fucking joke. These are objectively bad teams with players who have barely accomplished anything in their entire careers and here are TI winners with their 3rd place placements while those other teams take the top spot.
I think the DPC-Points for league play are too high! If we want to find out which is the best team in the world, competing against the world should be worth more and so Majors would be more important!
But that aside and searching for "answers", maybe all the games were finally too much Nigma and they got tired. (at least GH yawned against EG ). Their teamfights didn't seem to be on-par with their groupstage-level!
On the other hand, because we talked about them playing fast and direct and they switched that up... after their win against VP I thought, that is good, because they showed another side! But maybe it was, that they were "afraid" that these drafts fail!? You need a good timing to win with those high-tempo drafts and if you miss them, you are done!
Does anybody know if they are at a bootcamp? If they make it past Hellbear Smashers, OG/Vikin.GG are waiting in the 2nd round. Most likely it will be OG, so putting them into the lower bracket would be a great relief.
