The former 100 Thieves player has a rich history in League of Legends. After joining their amateur team in 2015, he quickly rose through the ranks. He subsequently joined the 100 Thieves Academy and won a second place in the Proving Grounds. He is returning to Dignitas for the Summer Split of the LCS.
William’scarra’ Li’s career on Dignitas
William’scarra’ Li is a veteran of the League of Legends scene, having played on the Team Dignitas roster for three years. He is currently a coach for the team. He began playing League of Legends in 2011 and has achieved notable success.
In April 2013, the team reached the Season 3 LCS Spring Playoffs, but was relegated to the Summer Promotion. The next step for the team is to integrate their new picks into the team’s roster. The team’s recent additions include Darshan ‘ZionSpartan’ Upadhyaya and Danny ‘Shiphtur’ Le. Many critics, however, believe the new roster moves will not work for the team.
Jarvan IV’s success on Dignitas
While Jarvan IV’s success is impressive, there are some flaws in the Dignitas lineup. For one, the team’s individual players are weak. They lack a star player and team synergy. In addition, their roster isn’t very versatile.
River’s performance as a jungler for Dignitas is a perfect example. In the spring split, the team finished outside of postseason contention. Throughout the summer split, Dignitas’ performance continued to drop.
River’s first season on Dignitas
Despite his talent, River’s first season on League of Legend teams was a struggle for him. Despite his great stats, he was never able to help his team win matches. In the first split of the season, Dignitas only managed two wins. It’s unclear whether River will be able to compete with Dignitas this split, but time will tell.
In his first season with Dignitas, River played the role of a carry. Dignitas finished outside of postseason contention in the spring split, and the team continued to drop in the summer split.
GG’s victory over Dignitas in summer split
River’s recruitment came on the same day he received a message from Golden Guardians, and he was soon on the team. Prior to signing River, Golden Guardians had started the carry-focused jungler Milo ‘Pridestalker’ Wehnes. This shifted GG’s focus, and River was drafted to help improve that focus.
While GG had a rough Summer Split, the team has had a successful Spring Playoffs. TL ‘perfect gamed’ them during week one, and they failed to kill a single champion, turret, or objective in two matches. This was an improvement over the team’s performance at the start of the split. In addition, Kenvi, their jungler, is a newcomer to the LCS, and they have had two weeks to get a sense of chemistry with the rest of the team.
New management group for Dignitas
A new management group has taken over League of Legends team Dignitas. The new management group includes Greg Richardson, who will serve as Chairman. He will be joined by former Team Apex general manager Michael Slan, who will act as Vice President and General Manager. The Sixers, which acquired eSports franchises from NextEquity Partners, will also share best practices in eSports with Team Dignitas.
The Dignitas team was founded in 2003 and has won 18 World Championships across various gaming titles. They were acquired by the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers in September 2016. The team is now a part of the New Meta Entertainment, Inc., which also owns the New Jersey Devils and Crystal Palace in the Premier League. The company has an 18,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Newark, N.J.
