Team Dignitas have signed a new roster featuring their former player RUBINO and his fellow teammates. The new team consists of an ex-FaZe trio and the addition of RUBINO and pita.
It took @Team Dignitas three months to pick a new team to represent them in the Counter-Strike Esports tournaments. They have been left without a team since their former team changed organization to represent North. Team Dignitas seemed to struggle to find a roster straight away since it took them quite some time to find replacements for their succesfull team but they have finally found the right people that they are willing to have under their name.
The team will feature a lot of big names under one organization as a new team. We will be seeing a return of Maikelele in pro play together with his former FaZe teammates fox and jkaem who were expected to create a new team for quite some time now. Maikelele was seen in a team not so long ago that instantly disbanded after their first match and the rumors go that he was asked by jkaem to join his team. Together with these ex-FaZe players come RUBINO and pita. Pita is an ex-NIP coach who has a lot of experience in pro play and can play a good leadership role together with the coach of the team. RUBINO is back to his Dignitas organization after his team moved with him to North but kicked him from the active roster shortly after.
To put this team together it has been confirmed that both RUBINO and jkaem had to be bought out of their current contracts. RUBINO was still signed under the name of North and jkaem was still a part of FaZe. Dignitas is putting a lot of trust into these players which shows that the team is expected to give everything they have to show their worth it.
All these players have a strong history together so a synergy with eachother is expected here. Maikelele and pita have played together in an early stage for the SK organization before pita went for the coaching role at Ninjas in Pyjamas. They have also played in team qwerty again together not so long ago. Maikelele is also familiar with RUBINO and jkaem which he has played with in LGB in 2015. This same year the two moved to Copenhagen Wolves without Maikelele and before the end of 2015 jkaem was bought out to join the superteam of FaZe (G2 at the time). In FaZe jkaem reunited with Maiekelele and met fox the last member of this roster.
Fox released a statement in an official press where he stated that Dignitas is known to be a powerhouse brand. He is extremely proud to represent them with the team and wear their logo on their shirts. The team is excited to begin their practise sessions with this line-up since they all know eachother for a long time. They believe that the synergy will be strong and they have high expectations by their fan and are hoping to live up to all this hype that they create under their name. They want to be a top international team and with having so many supportive fans in professional gaming they are very excited to play together in the line-up.
The president at Team Dignitas ODEE also released a statement in which he said that as he promised to the followers of Team Dignitas, they are returning in big fashion with this new line-up. They brought back two outstanding teams and elite players that each have their incredible personalities. He said that the signing of this new team is just another step in the right direction towards building this legendary franchise that is Dignitas. Everyone they sign have had a great following of happy fans and supporters and an overwhelming amount of support backing their decisions which makes him believe that this is another decisions that the fans can be proud of. They want to only sign the best playing talent in the world under their organization and they believe thats what they have done. “We look forward to several more exciting annoucements” is what his statement finished with hinting towards more news coming from Dignitas in the next few weeks.
With this line-up of veteran players under the brand of Dignitas it is expected that they perform on a high level of CS:GO however this has yet to be shown since there is no known history of all these players together. The synergy is there between the players since they know eachother hopefully they show Dignitas that they do bring that super talent in play with their new yellow shirts.
Dignitas’s roster now features the following players:
