In addition to their League of Legends team, Dignitas also sponsors teams and players for Battlefield 3, Counter Strike, Fifa, various fighting games, Quake Live, racing games, and StarCraft II. Michael "ODEE" O'Dell is the current Managing Director of the Team Dignitas organization.
Biography

Pre Season 2

Team Dignitas acquired the roster of Rock Solid in September 2011. At the time, the roster included Voyboy, Jatt, scarra, imaqtpie, and L0cust, and they had recently had several strong online finishes.

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. Due to their participation in the IEM New York Qualifier #1 as Rock Solid, Dignitas had an opportunity to qualify for IEM New York. They were successful and attended the tournament but did not advance from the group stage and finished tied for fifth, earning 25 Riot-circuit points.

Dignitas's next LAN was MLG Providence, where they placed third. After a quarterfinal finish at WCG 2011, Jatt stepped down from the team, stating that he could "no longer put up the required time to stay at the top level and he does not want to hold his teammates back". Jatt went on to join Riot Games and eventually became a caster for them.

Season 2

Jatt's replacement IWillDominate joined the team in January 2012, the day before IEM Kiev. Dignitas placed third there, after a semifinal loss to Team SoloMid and a third-place victory over SK Gaming. 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.

After a third-place finish at IPL 4 in April, top laner Voyboy left the team to join CLG, while Curse's jungler Crumbzz joined the Dignitas lineup, moving to top lane; the three-way roster swap was completed by CLG Saintvicious leaving to join Curse. With only three weeks of practice before the MLG Spring Championship, Dignitas were not expected to perform well. However, they defeated Team Green Forest, Team Dynamic, and CLG Prime in the winners' bracket before finally falling to Team SoloMid and then CLG, taking home third.

Along with Western teams CLG.EU and CLG Prime, Dignitas temporarily moved to South Korea to participate in Azubu The Champions Summer 2012. Unfortunately, IWillDominate suffered from many health issues and had to go to the emergency room twice. The team finished third in their group, just out of playoff contention. Shortly after the event, they returned to North America. L0cust left the team, replaced Patoy.

After returning home, Dignitas competed in the 2012 MLG Summer Championship in Raleigh, an event that top North American teams TSM and CLG had notably decided not to attend in order to better prepare for the Season 2 Regional Finals and not show anyone what they were preparing. As a result, Dignitas and Curse were considered the favorites to win the entire tournament. Both teams reached the finals, but instead of playing out the series normally, they decided to play All-Random All-Mid (ARAM) in the first game. After that first game, the teams played the remainder of the series out seriously, and Curse won the series 3-2. However, the teams' mutual decision to play ARAM was ruled to be collusion, and so both teams were disqualified from the tournament.

The team's next LAN was the Season 2 Regional Finals, held at PAX Prime in Seattle. They placed second, beating Team Dynamic and CLG before losing to TSM in the finals. This finish gave them a seed to the Season 2 World Championship. At Worlds, Dignitas was placed into Group B, along with NaJin Sword, CLG EU, and the Saigon Jokers. They losed all three of their group-stage games, with Saigon Jokers's victory considered the biggest upset of the group stage.

Preseason 3

In the offseason, IWillDominate was suspended from competitive play for a year as a result of violating the Summoners Code. Instead of the team looking for a new jungler, Crumbzz moved to jungle, and Dignitas picked up KiWiKiD as their new top laner.

Season 3

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. They started out the series going 16-5 in their first 21 games before going 1-6 in their last 7. 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.

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 time, they showed better results in the playoffs and finished in fourth - out of Worlds contention, but safely in the 2014 Spring Split.

2014 Preseason

During the offseason, Dignitas took Patoy off the starting roster and moved top laner KiWiKiD to support. After holding tryouts to find a new toplaner, they settled on Cruzerthebruzer.

2014 Season

Dignitas placed fourth in the spring round robin, with a 12-16 record. In March, long-time mid laner scarra stepped down from the team and was replaced by goldenglue for the last two weeks of the regular season. However, scarra returned for the playoffs, where they placed fifth. After the playoffs, scarra once again left the starting roster to coach the team, while Shiphtur and ZionSpartan joined from the recently-relegated Team Coast to play mid lane and top lane, respectively. Cruzerthebruzer and goldenglue both became substitutes. Team owner Michael "Odee" O'Dell was fined $1,000 USD for using offensive and vulgar language on a popular online streaming platform in June.

In the summer split, despite sitting at a 6-2 record at the end of the third week, they ended the round robin in sixth place, with a 13-15 record. However, in the playoffs they managed to avoid relegation by defeating CLG in the fifth-place match.

2015 Preseason

After the conclusion of the season, scarra left the team completely, resigning his position as coach. Additionally, ZionSpartan and Imaqtpie departed; with Imaqtpie's departure, the last member of the original Rock Solid lineup was gone. When Team Curse declined their invitation to IEM Cologne, Dignitas were invited to participate in the tournament instead. 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. The complete roster going into the 2015 season included Core JJ, Crumbzz, Shiphtur, Gamsu, and KiWiKiD.

2015 Season

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. The team ended the round robin with a 6-12 record in 9th place. Winterfox, the 8th-place team, chose to play against Team Dragon Knights in relegations, leaving Dignitas to play against Team Fusion. However, while Winterfox was relegated, Dignitas stayed in the LCS for the summer season.

Two weeks into the Summer Season, Helios joined Dignitas and replaced Azingy. Despite being tied for first with a 7-2 record halfway through the season, the team struggled throughout the last half and finished sixth at 10-8. 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.

2016 Preseason

Faced with the need to sell one of their LCS teams, Dignitas sold their European team in October 2015. Brokenshard, formerly head coach of that squad, moved to their North American staff as head coach, and former Gamers2 manager InnerFlame joined as team manager. Dignitas also revamped their roster: Smittyj and Kirei from the European Challenger team joined the team as top laner and jungler, and former Team Impulse AD carry Apollo replaced CoreJJ. With Jesse substituting in place of KiWiKiD, the new lineup debuted at IEM Cologne, where they were eliminated in the first round, losing 2-1 to China's Qiao Gu.

2016 Season

Following two 1-1 weeks in the season's spring split, Smittyj was removed from the team's starting roster and replaced by BillyBoss, due to "behavioural issues". The team's worst-ever split unfolded following this change, as they saw only two further wins and – after playing the longest game of the split – finished 10th place with a 4-14 record. The same roster played in the Summer Promotion tournament, where they lost 0-3 to Team Dragon Knights, resulting in their elimination from the LCS. This made Dignitas the first of the three original North American LCS invitee teams to be relegated from the competition.

In May, Dignitas transferred its NACS Summer Season seed to Apex Gaming. After Apex finished the split in seventh place, both Dignitas and Apex were acquired by the Philadelphia 76ers in September 2016, to play under the Dignitas name.
