After half a season with the team, tyfoon has parted ways with Levitate
Levitate have lost their only Canadian player as Marian "tyfoon" Lesnic has left the team. tyfoon originally joined Levitate, then ex-eRa, before the start of the current MDL season in May, after leaving Mask Off at the end of the previous season.
The 17-year-old's departure is likely related by the team's forfeiture of two straight matches in the MDL regular season to Fam143 and Vikings, as well as the team losing four straight matches in a row.
We reached out to tyfoon regarding his departure from the team and the player replied that it "seems like nobody really cared." An earlier tweet from former teammate Thomas "Axed" Ryan further indicates that dedication appeared to be waning within the team.
With tyfoon gone, Levitate's roster is:
- Jacob "SPERMY" Younan
- Adam "juice" Sar
- Hunter "koga" Allen
Levitate have yet to announce a replacement for tyfoon or Axed, likely because of the short notice of their departures, however the team has posted a recruitment ad on ESEA to refill their roster.
Levitate are currently still participating in the NA MDL, where they are sitting low in the rankings with a 3-7 record in 19th place. The team have two upcoming matches against Squirtle Squad and Bravado, as well as delayed games against RESOLUTE and Monstars that are still awaiting a reschedule.
Levitate have also recently participated in the NA Minor Open Qualifier #3, where they were shut down in the quarterfinals by Fam143 in a 2-0 series.
UPDATE: An earlier version of this article listed Thomas "Axed" Ryan as an active member of Levitate's roster.
