Another hopeful organization is joining the fray of those searching for an entry point to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Dignitas have revealed their plans to jump back into the scene in a post to Twitter including a video from the companies CEO Michael “Prindi” Prindiville.
Dignitas had been around the Counter-Strike scene for years with several teams before finally parting ways with the most recent iteration in August of 2018. During their time in the scene starting in 2006, Dignitas had fielded teams at five Majors.
Mr. Prindiville stated that Dignitas is coming “back into CS:GO” and “building a dynasty.” He calls for “hungry players who want top level management, top facilities and structure so they can reach the top of their game.”
We’ve heard this more than once recently as 100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag revealed his plans to sign a “championship caliber team” prior to the StarLadder Major in Berlin. “We are flying to Berlin next week for the conclusion of the Major with a goal of signing players that are hungry to build a winning legacy here with 100 Thieves,” Haag wrote in a tweet.
100 Thieves previously had a very short stint in the scene without an official match being played by their team before parting ways.
In addition, while not teamless, compLexity CEO & founder Jason Lake didn’t hold punches when calling out his team and telling the world he wants to bring in the best tier 1 players and “build a juggernaut.”
It’s an interesting time in the Counter-Strike space as rosters continue to be shaken up following the Major and top organizations in esports look to make their leap.
