theScore esports Daily is a once-a-day briefing covering the top news stories from around the world of esports.

Dignitas unveils new logo as part of rebrand

Dignitas have unveiled their new name, logo and jerseys as part of a rebrand, the organization announced on Wednesday.

In an effort to better live up to their Latin moniker, the organization has swapped out its alien-eye logo for a crest that pays homage to the owl of Minerva.

Their new jerseys in particular will be unveiled by Dignitas' Heroes of the Storm team at BlizzCon 2018.

Momochi and Chocoblanka part ways with Echo Fox

Famed fighting game competitors Yusuke "Momochi" Momochi and Yuko "Chocoblanka" Momochi, have parted ways with Echo Fox, the couple announced on Wednesday.

In spite of Echo Fox's mass dismissal of fighting game competitors earlier this month, the couple appear to have left Echo Fox of their own volition. According to their announcement, it seems as if they will not be playing under the banner of either of their Shinobism or Fudoh brands, but another self-owned organization whose details have yet to be announced.

Alex Ich formally announces his retirement

Alexey "Alex Ich" Ichetovkin has officially retired as a League of Legends streamer, the former competitor announced Wednesday on Twitter.

Alex Ich had been part of League's professional scene since 2009 and, in addition to being a pioneering midlaner, led the Moscow Five to numerous tournament victories in 2012.
