Team Dignitas is an International e-Sports team headquartered in Great Britain. It was founded on September 9th, 2003 as a fusion of the Battlefield 1942 clans Legion Condor and Sweden Kompanix. Later on, more teams were added to the organization, and in July 2004 Team Dignitas was registered as a company - Team Dignitas Ltd. In addition to their League of Legends team, Dignitas also sponsors teams and players for Battlefield 3, Counter Strike, Fifa, various fighting games, Quake Live, racing games, and StarCraft II. Michael "ODEE" O'Dell is the current Managing Director of the Team Dignitas organization.

The League of Legends division of Dignitas is one of the leading teams in the North American scene, placing highly in numerous premier and major events, both regional and international, since its conception with the acquisition of Rock Solid in September 2011. Currently, Team Dignitas hosts one team in the North American Season 4 League Championship Series.


Season 1

European Squad

Team Dignitas made its first foray into League of Legends on February 18th, 2011 with the pickup of the FurlR roster, of which the only notable player is MoMa.[1] The team was invited to the IEM Season V - LoL Invitational which took place on March 4th, 2011 where the team placed fourth out of four teams. The squad was dropped in April 2011 citing "irreconcilable differences" with "no way to repair this relationship".[2]

Pre Season 2

American Squad's Acquisition

They were knocked down to the loser's bracket in the first round after a 0-2 loss to Epik Gamer[5], but they then won against RFLX Gaming 2-0. Despite defeating Team SoloMid in Rampage KotH Series the week before, they were defeated 2-0, placing them in third place overall.[6] Team Dignitas won $5,000 USD and 60 Riot Circuit points, dropping to fourth place in the overall North American Circuit Rankings with 285 points.

Season 2

Jatt/IWillDominate Roster Change
Dignitas announced on December 21st, 2011 that Joshua "Jatt" Leesman, their jungler, would be stepping down from the roster. According to a article, Jatt reasoned "that [he could] no longer put up the required time to stay at the top level and he does not want to hold his teammates back".[7] Jatt went on to join Riot Games in February 2012, and is currently working as an Associate Game Analyst and is casting League of Legends tournaments for Riot.[8]

IWillDominate was announced as the new jungler for Team Dignitas on January 18th, 2012, only one day before IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Kiev. [9]

Team Dignitas started off Season 2 by winning $3,400 and 125 Circuit Points at IEM Season VI - Global Challenge Kiev. The team went 2-1 in the Group Stage, only losing out to Moscow Five, the eventual champions.[10][11][12] In the semifinals, Team Dignitas lost 0-2 to Team SoloMid[13], thus earning themselves a spot in the third place match against SK Gaming. They concluded the tournament in third place with a victory over SK Gaming 2-1,[14] and moving up to third place in the North American Circuit Rankings with a total of 410 points.

They started off the tournament with 2-1 victories over Monomaniac and Counter Logic Gaming in the first two rounds. Team Dignitas lost to Team SoloMid 1-2 in the winner's bracket finals, and then were eliminated by Counter Logic Gaming Prime 0-2.

Voyboy/Crumbzz Roster Change

The team's most significant roster change of Season 2 consisted of Voyboy, the Team Dignitas top laner, leaving to join Counter Logic Gaming Prime. His replacement, Crumbzz of Curse Gaming, was announced on the same day as his departure, May 19th, 2012.

2012 MLG Spring Championship

With only three weeks of practice under their belts, the modified roster was not expected to do well at the MLG Spring Championship on June 9th-10th, but the team managed to get a third place finish. After beating Wolf Pack, Team Green Forest, Team Dynamic, and CLG Prime in the winner's bracket, the team finally fell to tournament favorite Team SoloMid in the winner's bracket final, sending the team to the loser bracket finals against CLG Prime. CLG Prime managed to sweep Team Dignitas 2-0 to send them home with a third place finish, winning $5,000 and 125 Circuit Points. [17]

Azubu The Champions Summer 2012

On June 19th, 2012, Team Dignitas moved into a temporary team house in South Korea to participate in the Azubu The Champions Summer 2012. Unfortunately, Team Dignitas jungler IWillDominate would be plagued with various health issues during his stay in Korea, having to go to the emergency room twice due to immune system problems. At the event, Team Dignitas was seeded into Group B where they took third going 1-2, defeating RoMg while falling to NaJin Sword and Azubu Frost.[18] Shortly after the event, Team Dignitas would fly back home to North America.

2012 MLG Summer Championship

From August 24th to 26th, Dignitas competed in the 2012 MLG Summer Championship in Raleigh. They received a bye the first round of the tournament. In the second round they took out CLG Black 2-0. Due to the structure of MLG brackets, they would not play again until Round 4 where they would beat Team Dynamic 2-1. Dignitas met Curse Gaming in the Grand Finals. In a now infamous incident, the two teams arranged to play an ARAM for the first game. The two teams took the remaining games seriously, and Dignitas fell to Curse 3-2. [19] Due to the "collusion" both teams were disqualified and the prize pool fell to the teams placing third through sixth. [20]

Riot Season 2 World Championship

The following weekend in August on 8/30-9/2 Dignitas competed in the Season Two Regional Finals - Seattle against the top eight teams in the North American Circuit Rankings for Season 2. They played against Team Dynamic in the Quarterfinals, taking the series 2-0. From there, Dignitas moved on to face against CLG.NA in the semi-finals and took that series 2-0 as well. Team Dignitas ultimately fell to Team Solomid in the finals 2-0 and took home second place and a position in the Season 2 World Championship. [21]

On October 4th, Team Dignitas participated in the Season 2 World Championship in Los Angeles, California. Despite their strong showing at the North American Regionals, Dignitas appeared outmatched at the global tournament, losing decisively to CLG EU, Saigon Jokers, and NaJin Sword. The loss to the Jokers was considered the biggest upset of the group stage. [22] Dignitas finished in 11th-12th and took home $25,000 USD.

Season 3

On February 3rd, Dignitas announced the addition of Team Pulse to their lineup, as subs and their new challenger team.

Dignitas started off the LCS Spring Season strong with a 16-5 opening. Despite ending with a mere 1-6, Dignitas still came out with a third place finish in the Spring Season. With that finish, Dignitas secured themselves a place in the Spring Playoffs. There, Dignitas dropped drop their series versus Good Game University and were sent to the Summer Promotion Tournament where if they lost, they would be out of a job. At the promotion tournament, Dignitas beat Team Summon 3-1, securing their spot in the NA LCS Summer Season.

During the NA LCS Summer Season, Dignitas performed more inconsistent than they had previously, but still finished in fifth place with a record of 13-15 and were able to advance to the playoffs. Dignitas faced Team Curse first and despite a poor first game were able to rebound and win the set 2-1, avoiding relegation for the Season 4 Spring season. They next encountered the dominant favorites and eventual champions, Cloud 9. Cloud 9 proved too strong for the Dignitas team and defeated them 0-2, being knocked into the third place match against Team Vulcun to determine who would go to the Season 3 World Championship. Dignitas lost to Vulcun 0-2 and did not advance to Worlds, but still had job security for next season.

Pre-Season 4

On October 12, 2013, Dignitas announced that support player Patoy had stepped down to be a substitute, and top laner KiWiKiD had moved to the support position. Dignitas began to hold tryouts to find a new suitable top laner, and picked up Cruzerthebruzer on November 11.[23]

Season 4

Team Dignitas competed in the 2014 NA LCS Spring Split with Cruzer top and showed similar results to the previous split. Although Dignitas held a 9-3 record over the bottom three teams, they struggled 2-10 against the top three. After a mediocre overall performance throughout the split, longtime mid laner scarra stepped down to coach the team, while goldenglue joined to take his position. Despite finishing with only a 12-16 record, Dignitas ended up in fourth place in the regular season. Entering the playoffs, Dignitas lost a series 1-2 to Team Curse, and then won the next series 2-1 against Team Coast, finalizing a fifth place finish and guaranteeing a spot in the upcoming summer split.

During that off-season, rival LCS Team Coast was relegated from the LCS. Coast's two solo laners, mid laner Shiphtur, and top laner ZionSpartan, were picked up by Dignitas to replace Cruzerthebruzer and goldenglue. That summer split, Dignitas' new roster made a huge impact to begin the season, starting 5-1 in first place with victories against dominant favorites LMQ and Cloud 9. Although they were unable to sustain their position at the top of the league, they maintained third place for much of the season. However, beginning Week 8, Dignitas went 2-8 and slid to sixth place with a 13-15 finish. Although Dignitas held the same record as CLG and Curse, they had losing head-to-head records and barely entered playoffs in sixth.

At the summer playoffs, Dignitas first faced third seed Team SoloMid in a best-of-five. Despite an outstanding backdoor finish by top laner ZionSpartan playing Nasus in the first game, Dignitas dropped three in a row immediately after and lost the series 1-3. In the fifth place match, Dignitas faced CLG and won 3-1, led by Shiphtur's 8.0 KDA and 14-1-19 record in games two through four playing Ziggs and Syndra. Dignitas again secured their spot in the next year's LCS.
