Dignitas and Evil Geniuses change their roster, but is it enough to improve their ranking?

The CS:GO landscape is changing very fast and teams are always trying to figure out the best combination of players. Recently, Evil Geniuses and Team Dignitas announced changes to their CS:GO rosters. EG added Owen “oBo” Schlatter to its CS:GO roster while Dignitas added Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson.

Dignitas add Lekro

Team Dignitas has added Lekro to its active CS:GO roster, the organization announced on Sunday. Lekro will replace Haris “⁠H4RR3⁠” Hadzic who is no longer a part of the roster. The 27-year-old Swedish player will reunite with Patrik “⁠f0rest⁠” Lindberg on Dignitas. The two players were teammates on the Ninjas in Pyjamas from 2018-20. 

Lekro had joined North esports in August 2020 after spending three months on the NiP bench. After North winded operations earlier this year, Lekro was on the lookout for a new CS:GO home. Lekro spent considerable time as an in-game leader. But Team Dignitas coach, Vendetta told HLTV that the player will not take over leadership duties from Adam “⁠friberg⁠” Friberg.

Lekro has been in great form recently with an impressive 1.29 rating over the past three months. With 0.83 kills per round, Lekro’s consistency makes him a valuable addition to the Dignitas roster. 

Team Dignitas’ CS:GO roster is as follows:

  • Patrik “⁠f0rest⁠” Lindberg.
  • Håkon “⁠hallzerk⁠” Fjærli.
  • Adam “⁠friberg⁠” Friberg.
  • Ludvig “⁠HEAP⁠” Alonso.
  • Jonas “⁠Lekr0⁠” Olofsson.

Evil Geniuses Sign oBo

oBo left Complexity in January and has now already found a new home in Evil Geniuses. The 17-year-old player was a part of the Complexity ‘juggernaut’ roster. However, less than a month of being on the roster, the player requested to be benched last year following the homesickness of traveling through Europe.

Evil Geniuses was left without a complete roster after Ethan “⁠Ethan⁠” Arnold quit CS:GO to move to Riot Games’ VALORANT. Ethan is now a part of the 100Thieves VALORANT lineup. Evil Geniuses has completed its North American CS:GO roster. The team will compete in the ESL Pro League Season 12 in Europe. Evil Geniuses is a part of Group D where it will compete alongside the likes of Astralis, Team Liquid, and Virtus Pro.

Evil Geniuses CS:GO roster is as follows:

  • Vincent “⁠Brehze⁠” Cayonte.
  • Tsvetelin “⁠CeRq⁠” Dimitrov.
  • Tarik “⁠tarik⁠” Celik.
  • Peter “⁠stanislaw⁠” Jarguz.
  • Owen “⁠oBo⁠” Schlatter.
