Team Eager is a SMITE team formed in February 2015. It was made up of former members of the North American Team Dignitas squad. In December 2015, the roster underwent a major overhaul in the aftermath of the Season 2 NA Regional Championship, losing 4 out of 5 active players and their coach. By the end of the following month, Team Eager and the remnants of COGnitive Gaming merged, and added Divios, forming the current roster.

History

In January 2015, Team Dignitas announced the surprise departure of its long-standing North American team around team captain Lassiz.[1] Three weeks later, Gnaw announced the creation of Team Eager on Reddit.[2]

With the creation of Team Eager, AnatoLiy moved back into the team's solo lane position while Zapman, who had been the roster's sub, took over the starting hunter position again. After playing in the Season 2 Spring Qualifiers, the team failed to qualify for the SMITE Pro League and competed in the Challenger Cup during the Season 2 spring split.

After dominating the Spring Challenger Cup the team beat HiFive 3-0 in the Summer Qualifiers and qualifying for the SPL Season 2 Summer Split. During week 4, support player Aror chose to step down from the team. With the position void, Eager chose to pick up former Hi Five support, PolarBearMike.

Shortly before going into SPL Season 2 NA Fall, the team announced Cloud9 player 0mega joining to replace AnatoLiy who went inactive due to personal issues.[3]

While finishing 2nd in the Fall Split, the team was unable to qualify for the SMITE World Championship 2016 at the NA Super Regionals. A few weeks later, support, PolarBearMike as well as solo laner Omega announced their departure in order to find success with other teams for Season 3.[4][5] A week later, Lassiz[6], Daretocare[7], and Krett[8] all announced their departure from Eager. Zapman announced the new roster on January 23rd, composing of himself, Divios, and the remaining roster of COGnitive Gaming, securing the team a spot in the SPL for Season 3.
