Team Dignitas’ female CSGO team emerged victorious at the Intel Extreme Masters Expo in Katowice, Poland.
They beat Squared Prospects 2-0 in the Intel Challenge Katowice final after being resigned by Team Dignitas last Friday, the org that was founded in the UK and is now led by a Crystal Palace co-owner.
Last year Team Dignitas placed second in the Intel Challenge Katowice tournament which possibly made the win this year even sweeter. The competition featured a double-elimination Bo1 group stage and single-elimination Bo3 playoffs.
There’s more details in this HLTV match report and tournament info on the ESL website.
Team Dignitas’ squad includes team captain and AWPer Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido from California, entry fraggers Amanda “rain” Smith and Mounira “Goosebreeder” Dobie from Canada, lurker Carolyn “artStar” Noquez from California and Kiara “Milk” Makua from Hawaii.
Since its inception of the women’s squad, Team Dignitas’ women’s CSGO team has gone on to claim the first-place title in the Girl Gamer Festival Macau, second place at the Intel Challenge at IEM Katowice 2017 as well as top-three finishes in the Copenhagen Games and Spring Esports Arena.
Additionally, the team qualified for the ESEA intermediate playoffs, the most prestigious online league in North America.
Ahead of Intel Challenge Katowice, Emuhleet said: “This past year, my team and I have been working extremely hard to prove why we deserved to be picked up by such a respected organisation like Team Dignitas.
“We are going into 2018 with very high expectations for ourselves and are proud to continue our journey with Team Dignitas and the dynamic HBSE family.”
