After completing the ranks of the teams that competed in the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 with the victory of the Tigers. It turned out that on the other hand, one of the teams that passed, NiP had to accept bad news.
Team Ninjas in Pajamas division Dota 2 This newly formed team apparently had to use the services of one of the retainers of the TI7 champion, Team Liquid. Yup, ppd who announced on his Twitter tweets admit that this is a precarious decision.
The reason is, one of the NiP players must be hampered by a visa problem from one of the players, namely Neta “33” Shapira. In exchange NiP will bring in Ivan Borislavov “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov to the array rooster at the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 event.
Neta Shapira herself is a player from Israel who must be hampered by visa problems. This is certainly a consideration considering that Malaysia is a country that refuses to have state relations with the state of Israel.
But rice has turned into porridge, the 2018 Kuala Lumpur Major, which is just counting the days, forces NiP’s management to borrow MinD_ContRoL.
On the other hand, NiP did not show the proper game, at least in the ESL One Hamburg 2018 event. You could say, even though there is Neta, it is not certain that NiP will be able to give a surprise at the KL Major 2018 event.
Through a fierce match, Tigers successfully won the DreamLeague Minor Season 10!
The team that won the GG.Bet Invitational was not even able to make it to the playoffs in the ESL One Hamburg 2018 event. They had to lose to the compLexity Gaming team in the round. tie-breaker towards the Barclaycard Arena stage.
Then, NiP can also be said to get a strong supply of ammunition. How come? MinD_ContRoL is one of the most reliable offlaners in the competitive arena Dota 2.
The Bulgarian national player is one of the right choices. But team performance is the main thing, regardless of how good a player is.
Following roster Dota 2 NiP for Kuala Lumpur Major 2018:
- Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard
- Adrian “Fata” Trinks
- Ivan “MinD_ContRoL” Ivanov

Team Liquid itself was not present at the event for several controversial reasons. With health issues to the issue of arrears of player salaries, it is widely given to the esports team with the horse logo.

But so far Team Liquid has not provided a specific answer. Until now, Team Liquid has not played in the official competitive realm. Maybe some of you miss the actions of KuroKy, Miracle- and friends.
It feels like the Kuala Lumpur Major 2018 is worth witnessing for you Liquid fans, yes, even though the team is not included, at least there is MinD_ContRoL, wow.
