The org has announced that the duo of GeT_RiGhT and Xizt have been moved to the bench after a run of poor performances.
The Swedish duo were benched as a result of poor results as well as the team couldn’t make it to the threshold of the top 30 in the world rankings.
Dignitas issued a statement that the results didn’t match up to their fans expectation and discussion within the team led to the change.

The NA based org added that they will help the two players to transition into new step into their career.
Get_Right stated that he has some plans to share about his future.
After a lot of back and forth between the team and I, we believe this is the correct decision. I have long been thinking about my path and along with my current health condition, it was clear that now was the time to make a change. https://t.co/dyuVdVELws

Xizt said he will take time out to refigure his career.
This will be the first move for the team after the classic old NiP roster was reignited when Dignitas signed the team.
Fifflaren was given the coach/manager position while hallzerk was signed for the primary AWPing duties.
Early results were quite promising when they qualified for the minor.
But when the switch to online came about their performance dwindled.
Dignitas have just 150 points in the RMR and also failed to qualify for CS Summit 6.
Leaving Dignitas after a disappointing season and bad results. Haven't felt like myself for a long time and will take some time to reflect and figure out my next step! Best of luck to the team in the future and also to Christopher ❤️ https://t.co/FZH4wpGhpE
