In a Facebook post, Team Secret expressed its emotional win as Kuroky is considered as Puppey’s long-time friend.
“A bittersweet victory. We move forward but leave dear friends behind us.See you soon, Nigma Galaxy, Habibis,” read the post.
With Secret’s win, the team will now be moving forward in WEU’s regional qualifier. The team will be facing the winner in goonsquad vs Into The Breach’s series.
Meanwhile, Nigma Galaxy’s TI dream is once again buried for the second consecutive year.
For TI 10, N0tail and Ceb’s farewell run with OG denied Nigma Galaxy of their TI attendance. Last year, Kuroky was tied with Puppey in terms of the most The International appearance.
