POISED originally signed with Dignitas alongside the three other members of Homeless Homeless Inactive , who made waves in the PAX Arena Invitational after taking down 100 Thieves and T1. shanks was later brought on Trial to round out the roster for the Pop Flash Invitational.
Both POISED and shanks move over from competitive CS:GO, both commonly seen competing in ESEA's Advanced and MDL divisions. The duo were previously in the blood, sweat, and tears MDL mix, alongside other future Valorant players including Jimmy " Marved " Nguyen and Peter " Asuna " Mazuryk.
The roster has seen varying success since their formal inception. Following the PAX Arena Invitational, the Homeless crew fell out of the Pittsburgh Knights Gauntlet Series lower bracket to Cloud9, placing fifth-sixth for the event.
Shortly after signing with the organization, the roster bested favorites Team SoloMid twice in the Pop Flash Invitational, ultimately eliminating the team to move on to the playoffs. The team placed fourth in the invitational, which remains their only result under the Dignitas organization.
That tournament was shanks' first and only with the team.
