Dignitas has taken the decision to bench both Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund and Richard “Xizt“ Landström after a string of poor performances by the Swedish dominant lineup. The organization in their statement said that the performance by the team has not been up to the mark and “after discussing with all our players, we agreed this is the correct step moving forward.”
Dignitas Bench Get_RiGhT And Xizt
The in-game leader of the team Xizt along with one of their riflers GeT_RiGhT has been moved out of the team’s active roster following continued unsatisfactory performances by the team since starting out in late January earlier this year.
This is the first major change being made by the team as they start the search for their two new players. Another announcement is expected from the organization’s side about the direction they take from here on out. They will also be assisting both the player’s transition into the next stage of their respective careers which is not known at the moment.
It was not a decision taken by the management alone, all the players took part in a discussion after which the following decision was taken by the organization. Both the players were in complete agreement with it and openly spoke about how they felt through their Twitter posts.
GeT_RiGhT And Xizt Talk About The Decision
Xizt said that he had not been feeling like himself for a long time now and he will taking some time off to figure out his next steps. Wishing both Dignitas and GeT_RiGhT the best for their road ahead.
GeT_RiGhT shared similar sentiments while stating that he believes the decision taken by Dignitas was the right one and he would be “rooting for them all the way”. He revealed that he had actually been thinking about his future and with his current health condition “It was clear that now was the time to make a change.”
Dignitas overall did not find as much success as they had hoped for, they lost their foothold to compete at top-tier CS:GO tournaments quite early and even failed to achieve results in ‘Tier-2’ competitions forcing Dignitas to make some necessary changes.
