Additionally, Trainer Diputs is the Clash Royale NYC Winter Wars Champion, served as the captain for the Royale Premier League World Championship and has finished Top 15 in ladder play competition.
Ben™, former Captain of the United Kingdom National team and former Coach for top Clash Royale team, Tribe Gaming, will coach and support Team Dignitas’ new Clash Royale team.
"I am extremely proud and excited to be given this role in an organization like Team Dignitas with such a rich history in esports. Identifying and nurturing talented players for competition at an elite level is the part of this industry that inspires me.", said Coach Ben™. "I truly approach coaching in a holistic manner, considering each player's history, experience, wellness and development integral pieces in building a true team. In a team-based league, team cohesion and a positive, productive vibe is going to be the key to success. I dare our competitors to sleep on us this season."
Over the next few months, MaxLaMenace, Trainer Diputs and Ben™ will be preparing for the league's August 2018 start date. The remainder of the Team Dignitas Clash Royale team will be signed at the inaugural Clash Royale League draft which will take place this summer.
