Dignitas are getting ready to recruit a new squad in North America after competing in Europe last season with Jack “ApparentlyJack” Benton, Joris “Joreuz” Robben, and Kyle “Scrub Killa” Robertson.
Andres “dreaz” Jordan, Andrew “Andy” Nolan, and Kadin “Zineel” Zineel will be joining them to participate.
The Last Season’s Story
Dignitas spent a large portion of the previous season as one of Europe’s top teams, earning spots in the Fall and Winter Majors and taking home one Regional Event victory. Their 9-0 record in the Swiss Stage of the Fall Major was the pinnacle of their journey, however they were defeated by SMPR Esports in the quarterfinals.
They qualified for the World Championship through the Wildcard with a 3-1 record, and after losses to Team Falcons and The Club, they placed 13th through 16th overall. Scrub Killa, Joreuz, and ApparentlyJack have all left the team, and Dignitas is getting ready to sign their replacements in North America. Gen.G has also purchased ApparentlyJack. As a North American company, Dignitas already operates a League of Legends squad in the area.
Andy played in eight out of a possible nine events for the Susquehanna Soniqs during the 2021–22 season. He also got experience with a variety of squads in RLCS X, and he will be the Dignitas team’s most experienced player. However, dreaz, who participated in the Fall Major with G2 Esports and in the Spring Major and World Championship with OpTic Gaming, will be the only player having RLCS LAN experience.
He did well at all three competitions and intends to take Dignitas back to international competitions. Zineel completes the group. He made his RLCS debut with Torrent in the Spring Split Regional Event Two last year. Although he only participated in one RLCS competition, he helped his team win the AAA Challenger Series Super Event 2 and earned LAN gaming skills by competing in the Gamers8 competition.
This latest addition to Dignitas’ roster makes them contenders once again in a crowded North American competition. The depth they needed might finally be there, so it will be interesting to see if they click together and create the chemistry that will last them throughout the whole season, and possibly lead them all the way to the title.
If you are a Dignitas fan, these news are truly a reason to celebrate, but even if you’re not, you should be happy as this means that the matches in front of us will be filled with nothing but pure action.
