Leviatán Leviatán Latin America South Rank #1 finalize their roster rebuild by picking up former The Guard duelist Ian "tex" Botsch. He will switch to the sentinel role, while new signing Erick "aspas" Santos will continue his duelist duties.
After a brief stint with NRG Esports NRG Esports North America Rank #4 in 2022, The Guard signed him as a replacement for Ha "Sayaplayer" Jeong-woo (하정우). The Guard dominated the North American Challengers scene, finishing top three in the Midseason Face-Off and Challengers playoffs, the latter of which was enough for a spot at Americas Ascension— which they later won and were promoted to the Americas league. Despite the feat, the organization backed out of the league. The roster later found a new home with G2 Esports G2 Esports Inactive who will replace The Guard and retain their roster minus tex.
After a top-eight finish at Champions 2022, Leviatán were chosen as the inaugural ten teams for VCT Americas league. Sticking with the same core, Leviatán began their 2023 with another top-eight finish at LOCK//IN, followed by finishing outside the top four at League playoffs. The roster came close to a Champions appearance but were ousted by long-time rival KRÜ Esports KRÜ Esports Latin America South Rank #4 in the finals of Americas LCQ. Following Champions, Leviatán parted with Fabian "Shyy" Usnayo, Vicente "Tacolilla" Compagnon, and head coach Rodrigo "Onur" Dalmagro.
