Levitate complete rebuild with Delta9, Swahn, Ghostii
Levitate have completed the rebuild of their lineup with the additions of David "Delta9" Shafer, Christopher "Swahn" Swahn, and Andrew "Ghostii" Kehler.
The additions come after Levitate were reduced to two players on February 2nd after Reece "Wilky" Wilkerson, John "yohan" Lee, and William "rin" McGraw left the team along with coach Donald "voo" Parkhurst.
Delta9 joins the team by way of Watch This, departing the recently formed lineup after just two matches played. During his time with the team, Delta9 posted a 0.77 rating in losses to Mythic and Bad News Bears. As a result of his departure, Watch This forfeited tonight's match against Extra Salt. Swahn reunites with Sam "Noxio" Goodwin after the duo played together on iNTACT in 2018. Swahn told Dust2.us that he would be taking Season 36 off to focus on college but has now decided to balance both roles.
Swahn returns to Premier/MDL after having spent the back half of ESEA MDL Season 35 with Kinship, posting a modest 0.90 average rating over nine maps.
The final addition to the team, Ghostii, will be making a big step up after being set to play Main this season with NwGFinalRound. Last season while playing with former Chris and the boys coach Chase "mcs" Sullivan, Ghostii made it to round three of Main playoffs before being eliminated by CarbonX.
With these additions, Levitate are now:
- Nicholas "hate" Young
- Sam "Noxio" Goodwin
- David "Delta9" Shafer
- Christopher "Swahn" Swahn
- Andrew "Ghostii" Kehler
Due to Recon 5 wildcarding tonight's match against Levitate, the new lineup's debut in ESEA Premier Season 36 is set to be against RBG on February 16th.
