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.

The loss to the Jokers was considered the biggest upset of the group stage.  Dignitas finished in 11th-12th and took home $25,000 USD.
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.
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.
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.
