Echo Fox Overview: Place Your Bets on Echo Fox

Echo Fox is a former eSports organization that officially disbanded in 2019. Originally, Echo Fox was designed to be ‘the next big thing’ in the world of eSports. However, after just under four years of operations, this plan never came to fruition – despite the backing and clout of Rick Fox behind it. 

Echo Fox History: 2015 – 2019 

Let’s rewind to December 2015. Rick Fox, a former pro basketball player, decided to buy Gravity Gaming for roughly $1 million with his business partners Amit Raizada and Khalid Jones. The trio then rebranded Gravity Gaming (a team with a spot in the NA LCS) to Echo Fox. It was a shrewd and forward-thinking business move. 

Quickly after this, Echo Fox began branching out into popular eSports games rather than sticking to just League of Legends. Some of these games included Call of Duty, CS: GO, Super Smash Bros, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. 

After an underwhelming few years on the circuit, Echo Fox began to fall apart in 2019. There was major controversy surrounding the organization after a shareholder made an alleged racist comment towards him in an email. Couple this together with the fact that there was a lawsuit going on behind the scenes (where several of Fox’s business partners claimed he was refusing to pay back $5.1 million), and it was inevitable that Echo Fox would shortly disband. 

In November 2019, Echo Fox was officially announced as disbanded by representatives.

How to Bet Echo Fox

Because Echo Fox no longer competes in the NA LCS or other eSports tournaments, it’s impossible to bet on them. Get started with esports betting and elevate your gaming experience today, right here at Thunderpick.

Echo Fox: Divisions, Games, Rosters 

During its 4-year span, Echo Fox primarily competed in the League of Legends, Call of Duty, and CS: GO spaces. Here’s a look at the past rosters that represented them in these games.  

League of Legends

Echo Fox was a mixed bag when it came to LoL. After relegation battles, roster changes, and other similar problems, Riot Games negotiated with Echo Fox in 2019 so that an agreement could be made regarding their official exit from the LCS. Ultimately, Echo Fox was replaced by the legendary Evil Geniuses eSports team. 

At the start of 2019, Echo Fox completely revamped its LoL roster. This was their final lineup: 

  • Nickolas «Hakuho» Surgent
  • Colin «Solo» Earnest
  • Mike «MikeYeung» Yeung
  • Kim «FeniX» Jae-hoon
  • Apollo «Apollo» Price

The last official match for Echo Fox was at LCS Summer (2019). 

Call of Duty

Echo Fox never truly took off the ground in the Call of Duty world. A highlight came in 2014 when they managed to finish 4th place CWL Seattle Open. Outside of this, they rarely managed to crack the top 5 in any major competition. 

Things concluded in 2018 when Echo Fox finished a poor 23rd place at the Call of Duty World League Championship (2018). The roster representing them at that time was:

  • Brice “Faccento” Faccento (retired)
  • Renato “Saints” Forza (retired)
  • Donovan “Temp” Laroda 
  • Ulysses “AquA” Silva

“Temp” and “AquA” are both still active on the COD competitive scene.

CS:GO

Lastly, there’s the 2016 CS: GO roster for Echo Fox: 

  • Sean “seang@res” Gares (captain) (retired)
  • Ronnie “ryx” Bylicki (retired)
  • Daniel “roca” Gustaferri (retired) 
  • Shahzeeb “ShahZaM” Khan (retired)
  • Ryan “freakazoid” Abadir 
  • Carey “frozt’ Kertenian (retired) 

Originally, there was a big amount of expectation placed on Echo Fox to do well in CS: GO. However, the roster only lasted six months before disbanding at the end of 2016, with the iBuyPower Masters (2016) being their 10th and final tournament.
