Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett has officially left TSM to join Dignitas, the two orgs confirmed Tuesday. Dignitas would be the third team Dardoch has played for in the last three splits, as he looks to make his World Championship debut.
Dardoch became the center of one of many TSM controversies this off-season, after TSM president Leena Xu was overheard on Yiliang “Doublelift” Peng’s stream saying that “no one wants to pick up Dardoch”, severely hurting the jungler’s transfer prospects and indicating that he will end his stint with the org ahead of the Summer Split.
Two weeks ago, TSM support Vincent “Biofrost” Wang delivered another leak on his stream, revealing that TSM Academy jungler Mingyi “Spica” Lu as the main jungler for TSM’s Summer Roster, confirming Dardoch’s exit from the org.
Despite the damage to his career prospects and multiple leaks, Dardoch has ultimately found a new home with Dignitas. The former TSM jungler will seemingly split the role with Matthew “Akaadian” Higginbotham, who is also a former TSM member.
Dignitas themselves still don’t have a full roster, with the Summer Split looming, starting just a few weeks from now. In April, the team parted ways with star mid laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon, who they signed on a $2.3M two-year deal in November 2019.
Dignitas current roster
