Team Dignitas announced two key changes to their League of Legends' roster today, May 2, 2014. They welcomed former Team Coast players Danny 'Shiphtur' Le and Darshan 'ZionSpartan' Upadhyahan.
The move will shift several players from the Team Dignitas' rotation into different roles. First, the status of Greyson 'goldenglue' Gilmer is unknown as he was replaced by William 'Scarra' Li toward the end of the NA LCS Spring Split. A bench or sub role would be the realistic outcome. Because of the addition of Le to the mid lane and Upadhyahan to the top, former top lane, Cruz 'Cruzerthebruzer' Ogden's role shifts to the bench as a substitute. Lastly, Li will resume the duty of a coach role.
The addition of Le and Upadhyahan to Team Dignitas should put the team back into the forefront of legitimate threats in the NA picture. It will be exciting to see what this new roster for Team Dignitas can achieve.
The main Team Dignitas' LCS roster:
Top: Darshan 'ZionSpartan' Upadhyahan
Jungle: Alberto 'Crumbz' Rengifo
Mid: Danny 'Shiphtur' Le
ADC: Michael 'imaqtpie' Santana
Support: Alan 'KiWiKiD' Nguyen
Coach: William 'Scarra' Li
