Huni and Aphromoo share why they joined Dignitas for the 2020 LCS
When roster shuffles started in the 2020 offseason, DIG was often talked about. After the rumor the organization paid Huni to stay on the roster for two years over $2 million, many were assuming there wasn’t enough money left for any other good players, which is why it was taking so long for the team to announce a complete lineup.
But once announced, it was clear the situation wasn’t so black and white. Besides Aphromoo and Huni, both experienced players, DIG was also joined by Henrik "Froggen" Hansen, making for a potentially strong roster for the upcoming season of LCS. Huni and Aphromoo shared with Gafford what was happening during the turbulent offseason.
Aphromoo and Huni are confident they can shine with DIG
Gafford confronted Huni about the rumors, but Huni just laughed it off, saying that although some of them were just lies, being in the center attention was a good thing for him.
“It was pretty fun to watch, and at the same time stressful, there was a lot of rumors. Some make sense, some are lies,” Huni ssaid. “But basically, they’re talking about me, so I guess people like me.”
When asked about how he ended up on DIG after leaving 100 Thieves, Aphromoo wasn’t giving a detailed answer. But what he did share is that, even though he had an international offer, he decided joining DIG was his best choice.
“There was multiple offers, definitely almost went to another region, but ultimately decided to stay with DIG,” aphromoo said. “I was talking to James [assistant general manager] for a little bit, I really like James, so I decided to go there.”
The two players also shared they haven’t had much time to scrim together since Huni just came to North America, but are satisfied with the team’s progress so far. Though many don’t think DIG will make the top three this season, Aphromoo and Huni think the situation is still too early to forecast what will happen, especially with the new LCS format, so fans should be open to surprises.
They also added that LCS games happening on Monday will significantly impact their schedule, and make planning scrims a greater struggle. The full interview is available here.
