Ex League of Legends pro player William ‘scarra’ Li spoke about Team Dignitas in an interview with esportsheaven, claiming that it was “the worst org’s to play for”.

Scarra is a League of Legends veteran, having played the game professionally from 2010 – 2017. During that time he spent over three years at Team Dignitas, and now that the organization is returning to LoL, the American has decided to share his opinions on the matter. 

The organization is returning to the game thanks to a merger with League of Legends Championship Series team Clutch Gaming, which was first announced on June 7. The Dignitas name will once again be present in the LCS in the 2020 season, following an almost two-year absence after their last squad dissolved in late 2017.

Riot GamesDignitas will once again appear at the LCS studio.

The American was interviewed by esportsheaven on July 16, where, among other things, he spoke about the return of Dignitas and how it would impact the LCS.  

“If you talk to a lot of the old members of Dignitas, especially the League of Legends team, I think every single one of them disliked Dig. As an org, they were well known to be one of the worst orgs to play for in the league,” said Scarra.

Scarra explained that the main reason behind this statement is that the organization did very little to support the players’ brands and that overall they did not do a good job with the team during their time in the LCS. 

There is good news for Dignitas, however, as the American mentions there has been an overhaul in management, and he believes there is potential for the team to improve. Although, he does suggest that the community should dampen the hype around Dignitas, stating that “the default opinion of everyone should be scepticism”.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
