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.

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.

How GeT_RiGHT became CSGO’s first God

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive legend Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund became the first god of the game by dazzling a generation of players, propelling the game’s meta by years, and leaving a historic mark not to be outdone anytime soon.

Since 2010, before CS:GO ever hit the market, GeT_RiGhT was already terrorizing teams in 1.6 with fellow Swede Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg. Since their early 20s, the duo would rampage through events during their stints at Fnatic and SK Gaming.

If his career would have stopped in the 1.6 servers, his name would have still carried weight through the esports annals -but then, Global Offensive came out in 2012, where he would ascend to even greater heights of notoriety.

From the start, GeT_RiGhT would prove to be an instrumental force to reshape the Counter-Strike meta, specializing in dangerous lurks that would tilt opponents or catch them off guard.

It was risky, but so was his modus operandi. When early CS:GO pros would perfect their taps for long-range kills, he would hold Mouse1 to mow down entire teams with pinpoint recoil mastery.

He would soon be known for his multi-kills from a distance, without the need for consecutive fires, instead electing for choice bullet accuracy to push his team forward.

The #1 player in the world in 2013 and 2014, GeT_RiGhT, and the rest of the reformed Ninjas in Pyjamas that included Adam ‘Friberg,’ Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson, Forest, and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström would create an astounding 87-0 map win run.

GeT_RiGhT would go on to have an illustrious career filled with trophies, titles, and glory, becoming the first god of CS:GO along the way.
