Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund and Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström are no longer part of the active lineup of Dignitas. This was announced by the organization on Wednesday.
The team justifies this step with bad results and the unfulfilled expectations of the fans. The decision to bench the two players is a decision made within the team. However, both of them have the full support of Dignitas for the rest of their careers.

First changes since restart
The changes of GeT_RiGhT and Xizt are the first changes since Dignitas’ return to the competitive CS:GO scene in early January. At that time the former NiP-quintet around Adam ‘friberg’ Friberg was hired. Despite the big names and initially good results they finally missed the qualification for cs_summit6.
Successor still unknown
While the rumor mill is already boiling heavily in the community, Dignitas is keeping a low profile about a possible succession. At the beginning of the coming week, they want to discuss further personal details. The team will get serious from September 22. Then the qualification for the DreamHack Open Fall is pending.
