Team Dignitas is an international esports organization based in Great Britain. Dignitas fields teams and players in games such as Counter Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA 16, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, League of Legends, Smite, StarCraft II and Halo 5.

History[edit]

Team Dignitas was founded on September 9, 2003 as a fusion of the Battlefield 1942 clans Legion Condor and Sweden Kompanix. The founding members of the team included Fredrik "NewmaN" Reinius from Sweden Kompanix and Michael "ODEE" O'Dell and Marcus "SpadEs" Persson of Legion Condor. Later on, more teams were added to the organization, and in July 2004 Team Dignitas was registered as a company - Team Dignitas Ltd. ODEE is the current Managing Director of the Team Dignitas organization.

Halo History[edit]

Halo 3[edit]

The first Dignitas Halo roster on record competed at the 2008 World Cyber Games, representing the United Kingdom. The roster consisted of Miles "Wra7h" Ross, Peter "Adihash" McGranaghan, Azam "Bindle" Abedi and Davinder "Singh" Kalsi. They were unable to make it out of their group, finishing outside the top 8. At Multiplay Insomnia 37 a new Dignitas roster competed with Shannon "Gripz" Jones and Ed "Vard" Burrows replacing Singh and Bindle. They finished 2nd. Dignitas returned at Multiplay Insomnia 38 with Daryoush "Inspired2Kill Waheed in place of Wra7h. The new roster finished 3rd. Dignitas made a roster overhaul over the next few months, replacing Adihash and Inspired2Kill with Rasmus "FragTaLe" Roberg and Scott "Fuzion" Findlay. This new roster took 5th place at ECL 1 Liverpool. The roster briefly disbanded after this event.

Halo: Reach[edit]

With the release of Halo: Reach, Dignitas formed a new roster, bringing back only Fuzion from the most recent roster. The roster was rounded out by Matthew "Koross" Shorrock, Andrew "Ramirez" Corrigan and Max "Riotz" Cottle. They took 1st place at ECL 3 Loughborough. The same roster would go on to take 1st place at Multiplay Insomnia 43. Dignitas returned at EGL 4 London, this time with Ruben "Trojan" Gijs in place of Koross. They again took 1st place. The roster disbanded after this event.

Halo 5: Guardians[edit]

On January 12, 2016, Team Dignitas acquired the Team Vibe roster of returning member Fuzion, Rob "SeptiQ" Singleton, Brandon "Respectful" Stones and Luciano "Mose" Calvanico, along with coach Chris "Inexist" David-Holman.[1] Dignitas earned a spot in the EMEA Regional Finals for the Halo World Championship 2016 when they placed 2nd at HWC UK Finals 2016. At the Regionals, Dignitas were unexpectedly upset, losing to both Millenium and FAB Games eSports in group play, ending their hopes of a trip to Worlds.
