In the Semi-Finals, our team fell short against Cloud9. Still, the Top 4 finish among some of the best European and North American teams generated a lot of excitement about our new roster.

4) FAN VIEWING PARTY ATTENDANCE DOUBLES WEEKEND AFTER WEEKEND
Just over two weeks ago, we launched our fan Discord channel. Membership has surpassed 750 fans, with players and staff actively chatting with the community. Each weekend, Team Dignitas has hosted a fan viewing party with staff, management and former players watching alongside our most avid fans. Week over week, the viewing party has doubled in size. Further, fans have shown excitement about chatting with former #DIGHeroes star, Bakery, as he offers expert-level analysis during each of the team’s games.
5) #DIGCSGO FE: GOOSEBREEDER AND RAIN QUALIFY FOR WESG FINALS

With the win, Goosebreeder and rain will travel to Hainan, China in March to play for the $100,000 prize pot – the largest pot for a women’s tournament in esports history.
