DIGNITAS is the latest esports organizations to form a professional VALORANT roster and it’s a colorful one, to say the least.
DIGNITAS has announced the acquisition of four of the five players that played under the name Homeless. The roster is a motley crew of players from a number of different esports titles.
Fortnite World Cup solo runner-up Harrison "psalm" Chang is the biggest name attached to the team. Apart from his successful Fortnite career, psalm is regarded as one of the best Heroes of the Storm players of all time, with multiple championship victories to his name in Blizzard’s failed MOBA.
Alongside psalm is Counter-Strike player Rory "dephh" Jackson. The British fragger is best known for his tenure with Complexity Gaming, serving as the team’s in-game leader.
Also joining the team are Phat “Supamen” Le and Kevin "POISED" Ngo. Supamen made a name for himself in Crossfire, an FPS that draws inspiration from Counter-Strike. POISED is a semi-professional CSGO player that has switched to Valorant.
Under the Homeless moniker, the team asserted itself as one of the best North American Valorant squads. With a top-four finish at the PAX Arena Invitational in July and top-six at the Pittsburgh Knights Invitational Gauntlet Series earlier this month, the team holds notable victories over the likes of T1, 100 Thieves, and Team Envy.
With DIGNITAS not opting to pick up Homeless’s fifth player Leonardo "Laski" Arroyo it is currently unknown who will complete the roster. It is also unclear why DIGNITAS declined to add him alongside his teammates.
This is DIGNITAS’ second Valorant team. The organization’s women’s CSGO team has already committed to playing Valorant, but it is still unknown on how this new signing will impact their plans.
The DIGNITAS roster will be making its debut in the upcoming Pop Flash tournament that is being hosted by B-Site.
