Dignitas have signed a new Valorant roster, including British former CSGO player Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson.

The team’s inaugural competition will take place remotely at Pop Flash hosted by B Site from August 26th to 30th, which can be viewed via Twitch.tv/Flashpoint.

Dignitas’ Valorant team roster is as follows:

  • Harrison ‘psalm’ Chang, 25, USA
  • Rory ‘dephh’ Jackson, 28, UK (currently residing in Texas, USA)
  • Phat ‘Supamen’ Le, 23, USA
  • Kevin ‘POISED’ Ngo, 23, Canada

The new Dignitas players previously played under the team name ‘Homeless’.

The group notably defeated T1 2-0 at the PAX Arena Invitational, where they were the only unsigned team to compete in the playoffs.

The addition follows Dignitas’ female Valorant team, a side that Dignitas says became the first professional women’s team to compete in multiple gaming titles in May 2020. 

Dignitas now has multiple teams participating in six gaming titles: League of Legends (LCS and Academy Teams), CSGO (men’s and women’s), Rocket League, Smash Bros, Valorant and Clash Royale.

“Dignitas have proven that they can provide the resources and expertise to their players to become world champions. We as a team plan on doing everything in our power to use this opportunity and support to go win one for ourselves.”

We are aiming to continue our legacy of developing top performing teams that command an army of fans worldwide. With our roster of both veterans and up and coming stars, we are solidifying our position as a world leader in the competitive gaming space.”
