After an extended hiatus from the FGC, European esports organization Dignitas has signed Hugo “HugS” Gonzales to signal their return to the scene, and their entry into the world of Super Smash Bros. HugS is a true veteran in the world of Super Smash Bros. Melee, having competed at tournaments since 2004. During his career, he’s become one of the best Samus players in the world, inspiring many players to don the Varia Suit and fire off some charge shots.

A constant presence in the top 30, HugS is currently ranked 23rd in the world, with high placings at events like GT-X 2017, Low Tier City 5 and The Bigger Balc proving that this old man can still keep up with the new generation. HugS will sport the black and yellow at Genesis 5 next weekend.
The last fighting game player Dignitas had under their banner was Ryan Hart, who was released from the team in February of 2015 as Digntias focused their energies into PC esports. With successful teams in games like CS:GO, Smite, Heroes of the Storm and PUBG, we may see Dignitas expanding into further fighting games in 2018.
