After about one year of inactivity, Leviathan has returned to North American Dota 2.
Andrew “Jenkins” Jenkins announced the team Monday through Twitter and included the complete lineup of the new squad.

Along with Jenkins, North American players Samuel “Noblewingz” Anderson, Scott “Slayer” Palmer, Jason “Newsham” Newsham, and Brian “BananaSlamJamma” Canavan will comprise Leviathan. Jenkins and Newsham are the returning members of the former club, as they were two of the team’s founding members in 2014.
BananaSlamJamma and Slayer are both established names in the North American Dota 2 scene, with professional careers that can be traced back to 2015. Noblewingz is the only unproven member on the team as a relative new face to the professional Dota 2 scene. According to his Dotabuff profile, he sports a solo MMR of over 7800, which firmly places him in the top 25 players in the region. Whether or not he will be able to prove that he is a player worthy of rubbing shoulders with established talent remains to be seen.
Leviathan’s last tournament performance was in a qualifier for WePlay Dota2 League Season 3: Americas Division, where it came in last.
