Echo Fox is a North American League of Legends Team owned by film and television actor, businessman and former NBA player Rick Fox.

History

On December 18, 2015 it was announced that Rick Fox purchased Gravity Gaming and renames it to Echo Fox.[1] Keeping only David "Cop" Roberson from the previous team, Echo Fox needed to recruit an entirely new roster, including LCS veterans Keith and Froggen.

Season 6

Echo Fox finished their first Spring split in the LCS with a 6-12 win-loss score, placing them in the 7th spot and auto-qualifying them for the Summer split. Although the team had a poor showing, they did not make any changes in their roster. Come Summer, the team's ranking worsen as they finished 10th (1-16) in the regular split, thus requiring the team to play for the 2017 Spring Promo. Fortunately, they are able to retain their spot for the 2017 season by defeating NRG Esports (3-0).

In August, Echo Fox announced that former Team Liquid's Jungler, Dardoch, is joining the team.[2] However, the said announcement was deleted later on and no official announcement followed regarding the transfer. In December, it was announced that former World Champion Looper has signed with the team. He will be replacing kfo in the Top lane and joining Froggen and KEITH, the remaining members from the original roster.
