Just yesterday, Dignitas announced that the mid laner Tanner "Damonte" Damonte had re-signed with the team, being part of the Academy roster. Today, Dignitas announced that Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham will be joining the Academy team in the jungle position.
On twitter, Dignitas announced that this is not "your average Academy team": as of today, DIGA is composed by the two bot laners Richard "Rikara" Samuel Oh and Kim "Fenix" Jae-hun, mid laner Tanner "Damonte" Damonte, jungler Matthew "Akaadian" Higginbotham and top laner Tom "Rodov" Rodov.
Formerly under the Clutch Gaming brand, Dignitas Academy had an incredibly low performance, placing 10th in the Spring Split and 9th in the Summer Split, with win rates of 17% and 33% respectively. The stronger roster is expected to catapult DIGA to a better position in the 2020 season.
Previously, Akaadian had been part of Echo Fox, OpTic Gaming, TSM Academy and TSM.
