The latest to take the plunge into what is a rapidly growing scene, Team Dignitas has announced their entrance into competitive Overwatch with the acquisition of the roster formerly known as Creation eSports, making this the organization’s seventh title that they field teams for.

The European team’s players hail from several different countries from across the continent, including Germany and Spain, and have experience in professional gaming outside of Overwatch. Artur “art1r” Bischof formerly played in several competitive scenes such as Counter-Strike: Source and Brink, and Seb “numlocked” Barton may be most recognized from his time playing as a part of Epsilon E-sports’s Team Fortress 2 team.

Creation eSports has undergone several changes to their starting lineup since they were signed from FlatEarth in April, including the most recent departure of team manager Michael “Mitsy” Debus that led to Joshua “ToxikeN” Campos taking the second support position on the team. The current generation of Creation eSports has seen relative success as a roster, having taken a consistent placement of 3rd-4th in both Overwatch Open and ESL Overwatch qualifiers.

“We’re overjoyed to be joining Team Dignitas at a time where both the organisation and the game are booming,” said team captain Seb “numlocked” Barton in a statement, “It’s an honour to be joining an organisation as world renowned as Team Dignitas and we look forward to representing them at Gamescom, E-League and many more tournaments to come.”

Team Dignitas will make their Overwatch debut this weekend at ESL’s Overwatch Atlantic Showdown in Gamescom, which is being held in Cologne, Germany. The current roster is as follows:

Name Role
Seb “numlocked” Barton Tank, Team Captain
Jiri “LiNkz” Masalin Flex
Artur “art1r” Bischof DPS
Joshua “ToxikeN” Campos Support
Rasmus “Draceus” Waern Support
