Towards the end of 2008, Cadred.org chose their Counter-Strike: Source team was recognized as the best European team, and won the award for best overall team. In early 2009, Dignitas' Call of Duty 4 and the Team Fortress 2 teams both managed to place first in Cadred.org's European rankings for three consecutive months.
Throughout the years Team Dignitas was able to achieve numerous important victories. In 2007 Dignitas was able to announce its first ever World Champion with Freek "XeNoGeaR" winning the Trackmania Nations competition at the Electronic Sports World Cup (he also came second at the ESWC 2008 one year later) and taking home $10.000.

The World Cyber Games 2008 would again be won by Team Dignitas, this time by Command & Conquer 3: Kane's Wrath player Pascal "Dackel" Pfefferle ($10,000). In January 2011, Team Dignitas player Jeffrey "SjoW" Brusi won $7,500 after placing first in the Starcraft 2 IEM European Tournament.
In recent history, Team Dignitas has been known to have one of the best Heroes of the Storm teams in the history of the esport. Lead by British team captain James "Bakery" Baker, the team made it to the Grand Finals of the 2015 Heroes of the Storm World Championship, and went on to win 4 of the 5 European Championships in 2016. The team continued great form in 2017, winning the first international competition of the year at IEM Katowice, and taking home another Silver medal in the mid-season World Championship. The team made roster changes at the start of 2018, and Josh "Snitch" Bennett stepped up as team captain. The team has again won the first international tournament of the year, making the team the 3 time back-to-back-to-back champions at IEM Katowice.

In March 2008, David "Zaccubus" Treacy was featured in the BBC 1 Six O'Clock news where he is asked about his opinion on the game Manhunt 2. In August 2008, global microprocessor manufacturer Intel has released a video about Dignitas member David "Zaccubus" Treacy on its official website. At the World Cyber Games 2008 UK Qualifier, Dignitas player Shaun "Apollo" Clark was interviewed by BBC Radio 1. Team Dignitas players have also been featured in local print media.
