i dont care but im leaving a bump
What did Dignitas think when they signed them did they think that they can replicate the success they had 6 years ago ?
bump cause actual content
Basically dignitas has signed a merch team just like mibr. They dont expect them to win tier 1 tournaments (it"ll be great if they do) but its basically a team for selling merch. The difference is dig actually puts good performances in tier 2-3 tournaments and doesnt bomb the shit out and then cry over twitter and stuff. They still have their morals and heads straight. The players want to win but the org is looking with the merch sales in mind
They have 100% winrate on lan :)
don't understand existing of dignatas at all
smh like old retirement players just for fun?
It's a fucking mess tbh.
To begin with, It looked like they were putting in the work and actually changing for the better.
Now they're just in the old habits from the end of their time as a core. There's a reason they stopped playing together and they should remember it. Xizt is a fucking joke of an in game leader and they're making stupid mistakes you don't see in high-level MM.
For those asking for an example, they're peeking AWPers 1 by 1 and giving them time to reload. They're also just giving away a fucking load of 1v1 duels with 0 trade potential.
I play in a 5 stack, we're not serious about that game, but even we don't make these mistakes as frequently as DiG.
I usually like your posts and comments but after this: "Why Dignitas roster is stupid" I will not read it, although I'm not saying it ain't true.
So, have a good day
they just need more time... give them a chance...
Mens they will be top1 soon 😤😤 Mark my words!! If they wont i will eat my own cum🤬
After so long u posted something. It was nice to read. Xizt and Friberg just don’t have it anymore. Forest and gtr can stay. gtr is a strange player but when he steps up he can win a map on his own. And getting better players will give him more space for magic. Nice to see u writing again
Ill read it but you didn't have to write so much. A simple "disband" would have sufficed
I suppose they mistook with Halzerk picking. I do not really follow cs scene, but checked matches and 31years old f0rest who has a baby does better than Norwegian.
GeT_RiGhT, friberg and xizt have got to go. Build a new team around f0rest and hallzerk, as hallzerk is amazing and f0rest is a still hitting veteran presence. Unfortunately, it's time for get_right to retire and move on. btw OP, mind if I give some suggeestions and tips regarding your blog/writing in general? This isn't a flame AT ALL, just my two cents about possible improvements.
Try not to include somewhat useless metatext, you know. For example, with metatext I mean things like "Quite possibly", "personally I believe", etc., do you catch my point? If you have an opinion, just put it in there. There is absolutely no reason to sugarcoat it or add any useless words around it.
For example, if you want to come out as "more professional", consider the following. Let me show how the last sentence could come out without sounding childish;
"In Denmark I would go for Torben, but that is not necessary, because in Denmark there are a number of competent IGL’s and players that would fit in with the DIG team. "
"Considering the amount of competent and experienced In-game Leaders (and players in general, for that matter) that Denmark produces, the possibility of adding danish players to the line-up should be researched and/or pursued further by the Dignitas organization. For example, Torben, could be a valid addition amongst others potential players. It is definitely worth for Dignitas to expand their sights on new fresh players that would mesh around hallzerk and f0rest."
That being said, keep on doing what you do! There is always a possibility that esports-sites are looking for bloggers etc.
I think Dignitas still has it in them to compete and win. It's just been a weird year for everyone. Thanks for the write up though, interesting stuff.
i don't even know who you are
I love dig cause of it's team, altough hallzerk has a great potential of being in the top and the team is stopping it, hopefully i'm wrong about this but i think GT need to step it up more. something is very wrong at the moment. I love these players and I hope for the best.
Also, they need more offline tournaments, that's where they have alot of experience.
dignitas killing off my hallzerk :((((
Meh, as fans we expect too much from orgs but in reality very few orgs want to invest too much into CS:GO.
This is a perfect team for an org to pick up. They have a young & promising player they can build on for the future if they somehow wish to invest more into the game. They have two legends and one of them is still a VERY good player that can win games on his own.
They put together a solid team that gets along, no drama, they have fun, they create content, they market the org & the sponsors are probably loving it.
Also their salaries are probably not even close to some of the bigger orgs in the game and they are perfectly fine with that.
Of course we all want these guys to succeed but truth is I atleast wasn't expecting it. They are a solid T3/T4 team that can reach playoffs in smaller leagues & Flashpoint.
Good write up, i'll continue supporting them tho just because i love the team and their personalities, but yeah they really have to come with some results soon.
When this Dignitas roster was announced, I was pretty excited, seeing everyone I love in one team..Friberg, Forest, Gtr, Xizt and Fiffy but then they started playing...oof it hurts to watch em lose ;(
Very sad to see that Forest could've been doing great (like Rpk) but he's wasting his time and soon he'll retire
GTR is just a mediocre player now, he can't adapt for years after other players figured out how he's playing and his aim isn't on par with them.
friberg is a complete hit or miss, but most of the time he's doing enormous amount of stupid mistakes which costing them rounds and he finishing map in like -15 kd.
Xizt is pure trash, can't hit a barn, probably DMG matchmaking level or less, should delete the game asap. dude can't even understand in 2020 that u can't just walk on a map for a minute without any map control and then throw all nades in one site. they are met by 4-5 CT's almost every match because of his stupid calling.
f0rest is still a strong player with good aim, should just join fnatic as a six player to replace exhausted guys sometimes. it would be good for him since he wants to travel less. probably still best all-around player in swedish scene.
What the fuck is Flashpoint team.
I see it everytime in some articles, but I can't get it.
Thank you for the link. I'll be sure to give it a read, thank you. :)
It's a shame that your journalistic productivity is low at the moment but real life must always come first, unfortunately.
I look forward to your next piece. :)
wow f0rest is so consistent
is a nice read. bumperinhohohoho
Really, really enjoyed reading this. Think you are spot on with most of it.
Regarding changes i don´t think DIG will do any tbh. It is painful to see and in my opinion GTR and f0rest is kind of embarrassing themselves and destroying the legacy that was their NiP-run.
If i had to guess they will continue this PR-stunt / "playforfunbutnotreally" etc etc until early 2021, and then "retire" and claim that they have lost motivation for the game or blame COVID-19 or other health issues. God knows that GTR enjoys a good excuse to play shit, haha.
Jokes aside, it is good to see the gang back together but the second they connect to the server and i have to watch Xizts dogshit calls midround, and Fribergs suicide-plays that did not even work back in 2014, i just can´t watch any longer.
Keep it up dude, you clearly are a good creator of content like this. Have a good one!
I dont know anyone who is waiting for your posts
dead since vega squadron 16-2
I want to give them more time
It's sad, I actually hoped for some comeback, but I guess that'll never happen.
I'd guess the only option for them would be get right, forest, hallzerk with some good IGL and entry, which sounds a lot like the road NIP previously had, which also kinda failed.....
The reason why dignitas chose to get this roaster is not for the kill in it self, it's how the marketing system works, have 5 players that are known and people love/used to love, so merch and stuff like that can be sold easily and in great quantitie, that the whole reason about the roater, at least in my point of view, correct me if im wrong but i guess no other team would hire this guys if it was for their their current skill and plays, not for the old ones
why would anyone care about a random's opinion around here? you either support the team or not, that's your choice. what they do it's their decision and their org's
i dont like when kids write bad about legends...
typo in first paragraph :)
f0rest could go on and make it alone on some tier1/2 team but he is a parent now and I think his priorities lies in spending as much time as possible with his family.
Hallzerk could play for a better team, atleast in DIG he gets solid pay, exposure and decent practice in. Can transfer to another team in 6-12 months if he wants to further his career.
Xizt is simply put not good enough to IGL and perform fragwise at the same time. If he did not need to IGL his performance would probably increase. And The other way around, if GTR and Friberg could frag a bit more Xizt could IGL better. Altough I think he would need assistence from a coach better then Fifflaren who is more of pat on the back coach. Threat could provide some good structure, just as an examples.
Friberg and GTR is harder, both can have huge performances from time to time but far from often enough.
All the above being said, all involved in the DIG csgo project knows what it is - a merchandise team that have no real ambitions of getting top 1 simply because that is not realistic. All are probably satisfied, a bonus would be to win a mid tier LAN with the lineup.
Enough rant, I like DIG and all thier players so whenever they play I cheer for them. But in secret i bet on the other team, so I always win, hehe.
dignitas +taco +fallen +fer
stay: get right and forest
all playing for fun
good article man. Its really informative and decently researched.
The only thing that i have to criticize is that the grammar is a bit weird in some places.
but it doesn't really retract from the overall article.
Good shit man
Maybe they should create a old guys league or something, where the members of the old teams in 1.6 and GO(GTR, NEO, zeus etc.) play each other in a tournament. They could even invite some current t1 and t2 teams. idk maybe this could work.
I dont watch them tbh, but considering the time passed as a roster like you said, they DEFINETLY need to either restart (big role change and adjustment) from the ground or change roster. Because right now, even tho they're legends. Some of them definetly have WAY PASSED their prime. Also the fact that the old NIP problem (Where 5th man is faulty) still exist to this day definetly baffles you (even tho i think Hallzerk is performing, i somehow have a feeling that they'll cut him if they lose DH RMR)
I mean, OG struggled when online era start (esp. BLAST) but they're definetly getting better resultwise (just need less of the choking tbh)
Very good text. It's fun to read about a team like Dignitas, not just top teams. However, I have been watching them from the very beginning, Ninjas in Pyjamas is my favorite team in the history of CS: GO and in my opinion there is no point in DIG to propose any changes, their team was created and was advertised as this NiP legend from 2012 and in my opinion even the players themselves they will not be willing to reshuffle the roster. They are four friends who have been playing together for years and the project called DIG is something that was not supposed to be a pressure for them and let them play at what level they want, without the nerves that they will be kicked out. If they find that they have done everything and are just too weak, then in my opinion all four will disband, leaving Hallzerk for the new team. I remember what GeT_RiGhT or f0rest in Ninjas in Pyjamas thought about the changes, they didn't really want these changes of cuting Xizt or Friberg and that's why, for example, f0rest preferred to leave the young NiP, and play with young players with a chance of some success in order to return to friends again and play with without calling them to the level. In my opinion, if DIG doesn't find a way to play better with tactics or role changes in the current squad, it will end up with all four leaving the team or simply playing tier 2 without any pressure on results.
I actually think Immortals got a blessings in disguise. They got so many nice options now. Perhaps they could keep kNgV- and trk and just do like C9, HenryG and Kassad are doing.
You bring in a GM - this is the tought part - who start by getting a proper coach - which should be Peacemaker right now.
Those two philosophise about how they wanna approach CSGO and build a roster. They build 5 roles to fit that philosophy. If the roles would suit kNgV- and trk, then you keep them and slot them in, then you go through the top 10 teams in BR right now and pick the best suited (not highest rated) players for the roles.
For instance: AbleJ, iDK, b4rtin, Chelo, Yel, Felps... just pick and choose between these players, to build a competent roster. I think that would be better than any BR roster other than Furia right now.
Or you just sell MIBR name and the two players. You restart a project with OpTic or Immortals brands and go international.
Palm1 will take Get_Right spot mark my words mens
