Team Dignitas is a British organization that was previously known for housing the Danish lineup (now Astralis') and more recently another Danish lineup in-game lead by Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen. The organization had released the MSL in-game lead squad in hopes to form a new North American based team. Since then, they have acquired a North American female squad, formerly of Selfless Gaming. They also previously housed a male team consisting of various European talents, in which three of the core players, Maikel "Maikelele" Bill, Ricardo "fox" Pacheco and Joakim "jkaem" Myrobostad, played with eachother in G2 Esports and FaZe Clan prior teaming up again under the British banner. In 2018, Dignitas acquired a North American male squad, consisting of the former up and coming quartet of SoaR Gaming, Michael "Grim" Wince, Logan "Voltage" Long, Jack "xCeeD" Holiman and their in-game leader in Matthew "mCe" Elmore.
