Dignitas Roster Changes: LOD for Top Lane and Korean Coaches

By   /   Dec 21, 2016

Profound Dignitas roster changes see the team shaping up for the upcoming Spring Split of the North American League Championship Series (NA LCS).

A released video sums up the new roster, signing former EnVyUs Benjamin “LOD” deMunck in the starting position of ADC. He becomes part of the Dignitas roster changes alongside the already-announced inclusion of LCK stars Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho and Lee “Chaser” Sang-hyun. The remaining slots go to veterans Jang “Keane” Lae-Young and Alex “Xpecial” Chu.

An even bigger highlight from the announced Dignitas roster changes is the signing of two seasoned Korean coaches: Jung Su Kim and Jae Seok Park. Kim in particular was the man behind Samsung Galaxy, the finalists of the 2016 League of Legends World Championship who were just one game away from wearing the crown.

As such, the Dignitas management will be hoping that the involvement of both Kim and Park helps the players to not only grow but also beat the best League of Legends teams out there.

The recent acquisition of Dignitas by NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers is already seeing the organization spending top dollars to ensure it at least qualifies for Worlds next year. The same notion was mentioned by LOD as one of the attractions of joining the team.

“I was attracted to Team Dignitas’ infrastructure, talented roster, and incredible coaching staff,” said LOD in a statement. “Combined with the Philadelphia 76ers involvement, I think this will be the ideal atmosphere for me to learn, improve, and grow as a player. Moving into Season 7, I am extremely confident that this team can compete and win against the best in the world.”

Here’s the starting lineup for the team for next year:

  • TOP: Kim “Ssumday” Chan-ho
  • JUN: Lee “Chaser” Sang-hyun
  • MID: Lae-Young “Keane” Jang
  • ADC: Benjamin “LOD” deMunck
  • SUP: Alex “Xpecial” Chu
