After the LCS Lock In tournament and two weeks of the 2021 LCS Spring Season, Dardoch is yet to play the same champion twice. The experienced jungler has picked 10 different champions and isn’t looking to stop showing off his deep champion pool. Even with that variety in the jungle, Dignitas is looking great so far in the 2021 LCS Spring Split and is currently tied for third place alongside TSM.

Dardoch has rolled with some unorthodox and off-meta picks, and some have worked better than others. For the 2021 season, Dardoch and Dignitas have a 5-5 record in games, with many of those losses coming due to the team’s poor performance in the LCS Lock In. During the tournament, Dignitas was knocked out of the group stage with a 1-3 record, but the start of the LCS spring season has been better.
With a 4-2 record going into the third week of the split, Dardoch has succeeded with champions like Hecarim, Kindred, and most recently Kayn against Evil Geniuses. Dardoch has also tried out Rengar and Dr. Mundo, albeit without success. Whether the variation in picks will continue is unknown, but it seems like Dardoch is making it a mission to play different champions.
Even after 10 champions, Dardoch is yet to play meta junglers such as Graves and Olaf, so he will likely pick at least two more different champions. For the upcoming week, Dignitas will face FlyQuest, Cloud9, and TSM, starting on February 20.
Dardoch has played the following champions in 2021 so far.
Dardoch is a 22-year-old jungler from the United States who currently plays for Dignitas. Dardoch started his career in 2014, playing on smaller teams before joining Team Liquid Academy in 2015. After joining Team Liquid, Dardoch started to prove himself as a talented individual and a talent with a bright future. During the 2017 season, Dardoch got the starting LCS spot on Immortals and has since swapped teams a total of seven times. Since May 2020, Dardoch has been with Dignitas where he is looking to continue in that role through the rest of the 2021 season.
Dignitas picked up three new players for its starting LCS roster in 2021, betting on young talent to lift the team to greater heights.
