According to an article posted on the Team Dignitas website, the organization has decided to drop its entire Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, who has a major spot, for a North American team.
In the post, Dignitas said, “Team Dignitas and the Philadelphia 76ers are committed to building our next elite, international Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team based in North America with the goal of dominating the global competitive gaming landscape. Team Dignitas aspires to lead the esports industry in player recruitment and development; we are confident our fans will continue to be excited by our future player and personnel announcements.”

This is a highly questionable move to make, as Dignitas has the potential to be one of the greatest teams in the world and is in contention for a win at the upcoming major in January held by ELEAGUE. Whether or not Dignitas will still have their stickers or not is not yet confirmed, however, we will be sure to update you as soon as we find out.
