In the world of competitive Valorant, Leviathan finds itself embroiled in controversy as Agustin “Nozwerr” Ibarra appears poised to leave the team amidst internal disputes.
The Unfolding Drama
Nozwerr’s recent social media actions, which included removing all Leviathan-related content, have sparked a flurry of speculation. His status as an active member for the upcoming season makes these developments more intriguing and concerning for fans and followers of the VCT Americas scene.
Internal Team Conflicts
Reports suggest that on December 24, a team meeting without the management led to a push for Nozwerr’s exit due to ongoing internal issues. The aftermath of this meeting saw Nozwerr distancing himself from Leviathan online, fueling rumors and fan unrest.
The community’s reaction has been a mix of surprise and demand for clarity. Fernando “Mago” Diez of Leviathan addressed these concerns, stating that no final decision has been made yet, and emphasizing his policy of transparent communication.
The Ripple Effect
Nozwerr’s potential exit is particularly shocking given his acclaim as the second-best Skye in the 2023 VCT circuit. Meanwhile, Leviathan is reportedly not in talks with new members but is said to be eyeing Corbin “C0M” Lee from Evil Geniuses, hinting at more significant changes in the competitive landscape.
