pita: "Dignitas has players that can and should compete with the best"

Dignitas' coach Faruk "pita" Pita in an interview with the club's press service commented on the first results of his work with the team, which he joined at the end of last year. In particular, the Bosnian specialist noted that he was satisfied with the working atmosphere in the squad, yet the results so far left much to be desired, despite the high-class players in the roster.

To be honest, I was a bit shocked at how the team worked when I came in. A lot of things weren’t done properly in my opinion. I don’t have all the answers, so I’m not saying my way is the right way. But, if we as a collective can find our way, I believe we can achieve what we are here for. The progress hasn’t gone as fast as I’ve hoped, but the progress is there, and that is the most important thing – that we are heading forward. <...> I'm happy with the progress in terms of the progress that is not seen on the server – how we work, how we talk to one another etc. But no in terms of results. This team has players that can and should compete with the best. But even if you ask me after a major win if I’m happy with the progress, you won’t get a yes. I always strive for more.

At the same time, Pita spoke about the victory that Dignitas secured in the qualifier for the upcoming European RMR tournament, which will be held from April 17 to 20.

I believe the online qualifiers are more difficult than some T1 events. The pressure is insane going into a game against 5 players you’ve never heard of. But also against known opponents that are clear underdogs. It’s a mental game. With the help from our mental coach and the routine from f0rest, Lekr0 and friberg we managed to focus only on ourselves. And I’m glad we did, because I think that was the key factor for us managing to qualify.

Dignitas are currently taking part in the Scandinavian event Pelaajat Nordic Masters, where they are fighting for a spot at BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2022. Following the results of the group stage, the team's opponent in the playoff semifinals will be Copenhagen Flames.
