LoL, LCS Spring Split 2020 — Dignitas Players & Roster Updated 17 dec 2019 By Calo 0 While Froggen has struggled ever since he came to the LCS, the Dane remains one of the most experienced and storied mid laners in western League of Legends. Team Dignitas acquired the roster of Rock Solid in September 2011.  They tied for third with Team ROCCAT, using new acquisitions Core JJ and Gamsu for the first time, confirming long-standing rumors that those would be the team's new AD carry and top laner, respectively. Many people agreed that this was a huge overpay for a player who has been a coinflip player for the past two years. In the quarterfinals of the summer playoffs, Dignitas was swept by Team Impulse and finished 2015 with only 20 Championship Points, failing to qualify for the regional finals and eliminating them from contention for the Season 5 World Championship. For jungler Grig, this will be an opportunity to have a firm starting position on a new roster, after bouncing between TSM, TSM Academy, and the bench for the past two years. The first event that the roster competed in under their new organization was IPL 3 Defeating Curse Gaming, Counter Logic Gaming, and then Epik Gamer, the team took home the championship and 200 circuit points. After that first game, the teams played the remainder of the series out seriously, and Curse won the series 3-2. As reported, the team would not rebrand until after the season ended, although Dignitas immediately began to provide administrative and social media support, and the team's jerseys were redesigned to use the Dignitas colors. After holding tryouts to find a new toplaner, they settled on Cruzerthebruzer. However, the team then proceeded to reverse that record, losing their next four series and falling into 5th place, despite LOD being replaced by former FlyQuest ADC Altec. This performance was enough to secure themselves a playoff slot, where they lost immediately to Good Game University, which forced them to requalify for the summer split by beating Team Summon in a best-of-five series, which they did.  That performance along with their other IEM results was enough to qualify Dignitas for the IEM Season VI World Championship in Hanover, where they placed second behind Moscow Five. Due to their participation at Season 2 Worlds, Dignitas were automatically given a slot in the NA LCS Season 3 Spring Split, the first season of Riot's fully-professional league. To replace them, Dignitas acquired two Korean imports, former KT Rolster star top laner Ssumday and former Longzhu jungler Chaser, as well as former Team EnVyUs ADC LOD, with new coach Kim Jeong-soo. After the first two weeks of the spring split, Crumbzz stepped down from the team, and CloudNguyen played as Dignitas's jungler in week's 3-5; Azingy joined for week 6 and stayed for the remainder of the split. During the summer split, Dignitas performed more inconsistently than they had in the spring but still finished in fifth place with a 13-15 record, once again making it to the playoffs. This move seemed to pay off initially, as Dignitas finished the first three weeks of the split 5-1 and in a three way tie for first, with praise going to their newfound skill in playing around Baron.
