Team Dignitas has signed Emil "Magiskb0Y" Reif to their starting roster and have released Jesper "tenzki" Mikalski, the organization announced Friday.

"I am pleased to announce that I'll be signing with Team Dignitas," Magiskb0Y said in a statement. "I cannot wait to begin this new chapter in my career. Team Dignitas is a team that has consistently played at the top level for a very long time and as of late, they have been extremely close to making the top 8 at a Major.

“I believe that they need a final push to be able to do so and I am confident that I am the one to help them achieve that. I am so thankful to be given this opportunity from Team Dignitas and I look forward to proving myself as one of the top players in the world, they are putting a lot of faith in me so I will do whatever I need to to not let them down.”

Magiskb0Y previously played for SK Gaming, first as a stand-in before joining the team’s starting roster in December. He left the team shortly after the team was dropped by SK in June after the organization acquired Luminosity’s roster.

Magiskb0Y will make his LAN debut with Dignitas at POWER LAN in Denmark at the end of August.

Team Dignitas’ roster is now as follows:

  • Mathias "MSL" Lauridson
  • Emil 'Magiskb0Y' Reif
  • Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke
  • Ruben "RUBINO" VVillarroel
  • René "cajunb" Borg
