Team Dignitas has announced the lineup of its new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad, including the return of former player, Ruben "RUBINO" Villarroel.
The full lineup includes team leader Faruk "Pita" Pita, Ricardo "fox" Pacheco, Mikail "Maikelele" Bill and Jaocim "jkaem" Myrbostad, who will join ex-North player, RUBINO.
"As we promised, we are returning to CS:GO in a big way, with two outstanding teams, elite players and incredible personalities," said Team Dignitas president, Michael "ODEE" O'Dell. "Signing this incredible team of players is just another step in the new foundation we are building for this legendary franchise."
In December 2016 Team Dignitas parted with its CS:GO roster, who went on to sign with FC Copenhagen-owned team, North. Rubino was originally a part of that squad too but has since left to return to Dignitas.
"This is an extraordinary group of players,” he said. “They are players that have been playing at the highest level of CS:GO for quite a while. I think that they are all motivated and willing to do whatever it takes to be a top contender. We are eager to see how we will perform together as a new squad under the Team Dignitas banner."
Team Dignitas’ new CS:GO roster will make their first competitive appearance at Season 3 of the Esports Championship Series later this month.
