Dignitas is an international esports organization acquired by the Philadelphia 76ers’ ownership group. Known as Team Dignitas since 2011, its League of Legends team returned to the LCS scene in 2020 after two years of absence.
In 2011, Dignitas acquired Rock Solid’s roster including Joedat "Voyboy" Esfahani, Joshua "Jatt" Leesman, William "scarra" Li, Michael "Imaqtpie" Santana, and Patrick "L0CUST" Miller, all of whom are today retired from competitive League play. The team competed for the first time in IGN ProLeague Season 3, earning its first title. Dignitas kept performing well at LAN tournaments through the end of the season when Jatt decided to retire.
Christian "IWDominate" Rivera joined as Jatt’s replacement ahead IEM Kiev Season 6, where the team placed third after a semifinal loss to Team SoloMid. The 2012 MLG Summer Championship saw the same result, but Dignitas stepped up in the Season 2 Regional Finals. Finishing second, Dignitas qualified for the Season 2 World Championship, where the team immediately lost all of its games in the group stage.
Ahead of the third season, IWDominate was suspended from competitive play due to a long record of in-game harassment. As a result, Alberto "Crumbz" Rengifo moved to jungle and Alan "KiWiKiD" Nguyen joined the team.
In the 2013 NA LCS 3 Spring Split, Dignitas had a strong start, but the situation was very different by the end of the split. The team had to requalify for the Summer Split and went on to finish the regular season in fifth.
KiWiKiD then moved to the support role for the 2013 NA LCS Spring Split. With a 12-16 record, Dignitas finished in fourth place, but then performed worse in the Summer Split. The team did make it to the summer playoffs where a loss to CLG resulted in a fifth-place finish.
Most of the original team members left ahead of the fifth season. With only Crumbz and KiWiKiD remaining, Noh "Gamsu" Yeong-jin, Danny "Shiphtur" Le, and Jo “CoreJJ” joined the squad. The new roster struggled to find synergy in the 2015 NA LCS Spring Split, dragging Dignitas down to another relegation. Bringing Shin "Helios" Dong-jin in for the Summer Split proved to be a good idea for the team, and with a 10-8 record, it finished the regular season in sixth place.
Dignitas prepared a new lineup for the 2016 season, signing Lennart "Smittyj" Warkus and Apollo "Apollo" Price. However, during the 2015 NA LCS Spring Split, Smittyj was removed to the team due to alleged behavioral issues and Billy "BillyBoss" Yu joined instead. This change resulted in a catastrophic run in the split, and Dignitas was out in last place. The team failed to qualify back for the Summer Split.
With a completely revamped roster built for the 2017 LCS Spring Split, including Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho and Alex "Xpecial" Chu, Dignitas improved again. With an 11-7 record in the Summer Split, Dignitas made it to the playoffs where it finished in fourth place after getting swept by Counter Logic Gaming.
The team was disbanded by the end of the year, as Dignitas wasn’t announced as one of the franchised teams for the upcoming 2018 LCS Spring Split.
The organization made a return during the 2019 LCS Summer Split by merging with Clutch Gaming. Clutch started to rapidly climb the league table after the move, even securing a seed for the 2019 World Championship.
At Worlds 2019, Clutch lost emphatically in the group stage. The team has then rebranded as Dignitas, with only Heo "Huni" Seung-hoon remaining from Clutch.
