Team Dignitas release numlocked and art1er

Team Dignitas have announced a drastic roster change within their Overwatch team, as the organisation parts ways with Seb 'numlocked' Barton and Artur 'art1er' Bischof.

The news follows a recent slump in the Dignitas' performances, which has seen them struggle to perform both online and offline, following their failure to progess out of the group stages at the Atlantic Showdown at Gamescom.

In announcing the news, Dignitas released the following official statement;

"Following disappointing results at both Gamescom and the Overwatch Open hosted by ELEAGUE, the Team Dignitas Overwatch team has decided to make roster changes. The team communication and strategic development has not improved at a rate that is fast enough for the team's own high standards.

That is why the players have decided to remove Seb 'numlocked' Barton and Artur 'art1er' Bischof from the lineup. We would like to thank Seb and Artur for their efforts put into the team's development, and will keep an eye on their careers with great interest.

We have started looking for suitable replacements. Keep an eye on our website and the Team Dignitas Twitter and Facebook for updates.
