Snakes will sit on the sidelines until he is able to return to professional play

Dignitas sign shinobi and acquire Snakes as streamer

The fifteen-year-old has returned to his former squad... sort of.

The newcomers to ESL Pro League have formally signed Josh "shinobi" Abastado after trialing the former player in the coach role for the last two months, sources inform Dust2.us. Alongside the signing of shinobi, Dignitas have also signed Ryan "Snakes" Amann as a streamer, as he is still unable to compete in most premier leagues due to an age restriction.

The acquisition of Snakes will allow Dignitas to add the fifteen-year-old to their roster  with ease once he comes of age — he was forced to step down from the team due to EPL's age restriction following their appearance at season 26 of ESEA's Global Challenge. Snakes led the way for the team to secure their slot in ESL Pro League, despite being unable to compete with the squad.

Snakes recently returned to assist Dignitas in the DreamHack Masters Marseille North America qualifier, where the team fell to Torqued 16-4 in their second round matchup. With Dignitas' roster now down to four, it is likely that Snakes will return to the roster for the next season of EPL — should they be able to retain their spot in the league.

In the meantime it seems Dignitas is comfortable fielding different stand-ins in their tournaments after dropping Jack "xCeeD" Holiman, most recently using Armeen "a2z" Toussi to compete in our very own Dust2.us Masters #2 by CSGOPositive.com.

Dignitas' roster now looks as follows:

  • United States Logan "Voltage" Long
  • United States Michael "Grim" Wince
  • United States Matthew "mCe" Elmore
  • United States Mitch "mitch" Semago
  • United States Josh "shinobi" Abastado (Coach)
  • United States Ryan "Snakes" Amann (Streamer)

It is not currently know if Dignitas plan to add a2z to their EPL roster.

Thought shinobi was going to be their 5th player. Hasn't he already been their coach?
