Welcome back Pimp as Streamer
Tue 2nd Jan 2018 - 7:56pm
Continuing our string of announcements that started with James 'Bakery' Baker returning to Team Dignitas, today we bring back another great from Team Dignitas history. A top professional CS:GO player and now popular Twitch streamer has returned to the black and yellow. Having stepped away from professional play, this star has leveraged his immense game knowledge on various Tier 1 analyst desks while also contributing tips and tricks videos for the CS:GO community.
We're thrilled to bring back Jacob "Pimp" Winnche for 2018 - one of the Team Dignitas' CS:GO members from our team's 2015 era. Pimp joined Team Dignitas on January 26, 2015 - to play alongside Kjaerbye, Nico, FeTiSh, aizy and later MSL, schneider and tenzki.
With Team Dignitas, Pimp took 1st place at the 99Damage Masters #2, 3-4th at Gfinity Masters Summer #1 and 2nd at the CS:GO Champions League Season 1. Following his time with Team Dignitas, Pimp went on to play for SK Gaming and then moved over to North America where he competed with Team Liquid.
After stepping down from competitive play, Pimp offered his game knowledge to millions of fans as an analyst for various Dreamhack and ESL events, including the most recent Dreamhack Open Winter 2017 and ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals.
In the past few months, as he made a committment to full-time streaming, Pimp's fans and the Counter-Strike community as a whole were also treated to one of the most entertaining and educational CS:GO streams on Twitch. Pimp's Twitch stream skyrocketed and clips from his stream hit the front page of Reddit week after week. Even more impressive, these streams offered unique insight into CS:GO from one of the game's greats.
Team Dignitas has always considered Pimp family so it's great to bring him back into our home. As Team Dignitas strives to create unparalleled "tips and tricks" content for our vast audience, Pimp's respected history, his admirable personality and his game content and knowledge fits perfectly within our team and embodies what we stand for.
We're privileged to welcome this CS:GO great back to the Team Dignitas family!
