Biography

KiWiKiD hails from Austin, Texas in the USA. He played on the UT Austin team, PangGirls. During his time in the Collegiate league, he was known for an aggressive and pressure-centric playstyle.

Preseason 3

After IWillDominate was suspended from competitive play for a year as a result of violating the Summoners Code, Team Dignitas moved Crumbzz to jungle and picked up KiWiKidas their new top laner.

Season 3

Due to their participation at Season 2 Worlds, Dignitas were automatically given a slot in the NA LCS Season 3 Spring Split, the first season of Riot's fully-professional league. They started out the series going 16-5 in their first 21 games before going 1-6 in their last 7. This performance was enough to secure themselves a playoff slot, where they lost immediately to Good Game University, which forced them to requalify for the summer split by beating Team Summon in a best-of-five series, which they did.

During the summer split, Dignitas performed more inconsistently than they had in the spring but still finished in fifth place with a 13-15 record, once again making it to the playoffs. This time, they showed better results in the playoffs and finished in fourth - out of Worlds contention, but safely in the 2014 Spring Split. After the end of the season, Patoy left the team's starting roster, and KiWiKiD switched roles from top lane to support.

2014 Season

Dignitas placed fourth in the spring round robin, with a 12-16 record. In the summer split, despite sitting at a 6-2 record at the end of the third week, they ended the round robin in sixth place, with a 13-15 record. However, in the playoffs they managed to avoid relegation by defeating CLG in the fifth-place match.

2015 Season

Prior to the start of the 2015 season, Dignitas attended and placed third at IEM Cologne after Team Curse turned down their invitation.

Dignitas ended the ended the spring split with a 6-12 record in 9th place after undergoing multiple changes of jungler during the split. Winterfox, the 8th-place team, chose to play against Team Dragon Knights in relegations, leaving Dignitas to play against Team Fusion. However, while Winterfox was relegated, Dignitas stayed in the LCS for the summer season. Despite being tied for first with a 7-2 record after 4.5 weeks of play in the summer season (halfway through), the team struggled throughout the last half and finished sixth at 10-8. In the quarterfinals of the summer playoffs, Dignitas was swept by Team Impulse and finished 2015 with only 20 Championship Points, not enough to qualify for the regional finals.
