Dignitas sign H4RR3
The Norwegian player joins the team on a permanent basis in what will be his first challenge at a top level.
Dignitas have announced that they have completed the signing of Haris "H4RR3" Hadzic from Nordavind. The 23-year-old's addition leaves the team with only one spot left to fill following the benching of Richard "Xizt" Landström and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund last month.
H4RR3 spent the last two years in and out of Nordavind, featuring alongside Håkon "hallzerk" Fjærli for approximately 12 months. They were part of the team that won the LOOT.BET Smack My Beach Cup and finished second to Apeks at the Telia League Fall 2019 Finals.
"Getting to play with two legends like f0rest and friberg is unreal," H4RR3 said in a statement. "Also getting to play with my former teammate hallzerk again makes me really excited. I'm going to give my all, and prove to the world that I belong to the top of competitive CS with my team."
The decision to remove Xizt and GeT_RiGhT from the starting lineup was part of an overhaul of the squad that also saw Halvor "vENdetta" Gulestøl transition from an analyst position to a coaching role to replace Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson, who became Dignitas' vice president of esports. At the same time, Adam "friberg" Friberg took over as in-game leader, a role to which he was accustomed from his time with OpTic and Heroic.
Dignitas will return to action in a month's time in the second edition of Flashpoint as one of the league's partners. They will be joined by six other founding members, three invitees and two qualified teams in the $1 million competition, which will run between November 9 and December 6.
