Team Dignitas has announced it has parted ways with its male CS:GO team.
The release comes after a turbulent year for the squad, which was relegated from the ESL Pro League with a shocking 2-20 record.
We have parted ways with our Men's CS:GO team. We thank them for their time and wish them the best of luck in this season's Mountain Dew League.
We'll be keeping an active eye on the CS:GO community as we look to adopt a new strategy going forward.

Mitch ‘mitch’ Semago, Gage ‘Infinite’ Green, Peter ‘ptr’ Gurney and coach John ‘shinobi’ Abastado are all now free agents and will be looking for another organization to represent in the Mountain Dew League.
The departure comes just six months after the former SoaR roster joined Team Dignitas, who was hoping to have a successful North American team in the pro league.
After its relegation, Team Dignitas attempted to rectify the squad’s performance by changing its roster several times, until only mitch remained from the original team signed in February.
Following a disappointing year of results, it seems Team Dignitas has decided it can go no further with the current roster.
Fans of the organization don’t need to worry though, as it said it will be keeping a close eye on the CS:GO community and looking for a new strategy going forward, suggesting it won’t be long before they move back into the scene.
