Greek League of Legends coach and org founder Alexandros ‘Leviathan’ Mamasoulas (aka Levi) has sadly passed away aged 24.

Leviathan was the founder and head coach of Auxesis Esports, a team who compete in the Esports Balkan League, one of League of Legends esports’ European Regional Leagues.

Leviathan had at times competed as a player for some teams during his career, and he also coached in the UK League of Legends scene, having worked with London Esports (recently acquired by X7) in the UKEL in 2020 and NVision Esports in the UKLC in 2021.

He also worked with LoL esports player database platform LOLPros.

Leviathan’s organisation, Auxesis, posted a statement yesterday.

Auxesis said: “It is with great sadness that we must announce that our coach Alexandros ‘Leviathan’ Mamasoulas passed away during the night between July 6th and 7th. We are all deeply affected by the news.

“Levi was the founder of Auxesis in addition to his coaching duties. He was one of the driving forces behind it. We were fortunate to be able to work alongside him for months. He was a bright personality and his drive and daily involvement with the players cannot be understated.

“Alexandros was a familiar face in the ERL community, after many years of involvement both as player and coach. His passion for the game will be remembered by all who knew him. We ask that everyone respects the privacy of his family as well as the players in these difficult times.

“Rest in peace, Alexandro. You will be missed.”

The European League of Legends esports community have paid tribute to Leviathan via the above tweet, with many offering their condolences.

Leviathan’s passing comes after Yoppa, one of the UK LoL scene’s first players, passed away in November 2021, with the LoL community also paying tribute to him.

Auxesis co-owner Mathys ‘Diclean’ Purenne also posted an open letter to Levi, saying: “We had finally started to win, we had two wins in a row and the playoff goal in mind, but life decided otherwise.

“You were so happy to build your team during this off-season, you saw yourself going far, I still can’t tell myself that you left us.”

A UK top-laner who had worked with Leviathan on the NVision Esports team last year, DBL, said: “[Leviathan was] one of the first people to teach me about the game and a true friend. You had a good heart underneath everything and deserved better. I promise we’ll finally bootcamp together in the next life my brother.”

Nick ‘Crane’ Turberville, UK general manager for MNM Gaming and founder of LOLPros, commented: “I’m lost for words. Levi was one of the very first people to join LOLPros back in 2019. Over all these years he has been one of the hardest working and most dedicated people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. The ERL community has taken a great loss today.”

The LOLPros account also added that Leviathan “worked tirelessly and selflessly to help LOLPros grow and improve the betterment of the ERL community and beyond, but more importantly than this, he was a true friend to us all. Rest in peace, Alexandros. You will always be in our hearts.”

Zero Tenacity, an organisation Leviathan had previously worked with, tweeted: “We qualified in 2020 to EBL with him, and started off our competitive League of Legends path. Levi you will be missed by all, and we will carry you in our heart as a part of Zero Tenacity’s legacy. We are sad and devastated by the news. You will be missed coach…”

Many others have paid tribute to Leviathan. May he rest in peace.
