Former Team SoloMid jungler, Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett, has found a new home with Dignitas just in time for the 2020 LCS Summer Split. Dardoch will be replacing Jonathan “Grig” Armao who left Dignitas in the spring post-season.
Dardoch will be Dignitas’ starting jungler with sub-jungler Matthew “Akaadian” Higginbotham taking a more active role in the team’s academy roster. In the starting line-up, Dardoch will be reuniting with Samuel “Lourlo” Jackson, Dardoch’s old teammate from his days in Team Liquid. With Lourlo also taking a starting role after Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon’s departure, the two will likely form a top-jungle synergy that will reignite Dignitas’ playstyle.
With Dignitas being Dardoch’s fourteenth team in his six-year League career, the veteran jungler may step up and bring Dignitas’ performance to a higher caliber in the Summer Split. Despite facing an early check out by FlyQuest, Dardoch and TSM placed fourth in the Spring Playoffs while Dignitas missed the championship bracket due to a seventh-place finish in the regular season.
For their first match of the 2020 LCS Summer Split, Dardoch and Dignitas will be facing Golden Guardians on June 14.
