FOX 2019 Spring.png

Echo Fox was a North American team.

History[edit]

Echo Fox was announced on December 18, 2015, after former basketball athlete Rick Fox purchased Gravity's NA LCS Spring 2016 spot. No roster was announced at the time.[1] The price of the sale was not announced officially, but it was reportedly a $1 million deal.[2][3] Soon after, their LCS roster was announced: Korean soloqueue star top laner kfo and European veteran Froggen joined North American Challenger players Keith, Baby (who renamed to BIG), and Hard, with European mid laner Kori (who renamed back to Selfie) as a substitute for Froggen.

After multiple weeks playing with a substitute roster consisting largely of players from the Challenger team Ember due to visa problems keeping Hard, kfo, and Froggen out of competition, Echo Fox placed seventh at the end of the spring split - out of playoffs but also safe from relegation. Their overall season record was 6-12, with 6 of those losses coming from their games with a substitute roster as well as a forfeit prior to determining their substitute roster. With their full lineup, their record was 6-6.

In the Summer Season, Echo Fox had almost no roster problems at all - they substituted Grigne in for two games in week 3, and switched Froggen to top lane for one game while kfo played mid lane, but other than that they had a completely stable roster. With stability did not come an improvement over their spring performance; while they picked up several individual game wins (including handing Team SoloMid their only game 1 defeat of the entire split), the team lost every single series after the first week and finished in last place, three series behind the ninth-place NRG. In the 2017 Spring Promotion Tournament, Echo Fox turned their season around and took advantage of NRG's weakness, beating Team Liquid Academy in the elimination round, losing to the much-improved Phoenix1, and then sweeping NRG in the final series to return to the LCS for 2017.

2017 Season[edit]

On the heels of their previous disappointing split, Echo Fox made multiple moves; adding former World Champion toplaner Looper, rookie Challenger jungler Akaadian, and former Phoenix1 support Gate. The team began the Spring Split looking improved but wildly inconsistent, alternating 0-2 and 2-0 weeks. Praise was given to their early game play, especially Akaadian's play on aggressive junglers, but the team's late game struggles were criticized. They came out of week 4 with a 4-4 record and 5th place, but this would prove the be the high point of the season as they went on a 2-8 slide in the second half, finishing 8th, out of the playoffs but at least safe from relegation.

In the midseason, the team made no changes to the starting roster but changed coaches, picking up Inero, who had previously coached several challenger teams as well as Tainted Minds of the OPL. They also added three of their former Delta Fox players, Brandini, Damonte, and Grigne as subs, as well as veteran ADC Mash, who had failed to qualify for the LCS with Gold Coin United in the previous split. Unfortunately, the Summer Split followed the same trajectory as the Spring. The team posted a 2-0 record in the first week, but inexplicably elected to sub Grigne into the jungle for the entirety of the second week, leading to two losses. They rebounded with Akaadian starting again in week three to split their series and maintain a .500 record, but slowly slid down in the standings after that, never falling below 8th but never climbing back into serious playoff contention. Every position except for support was subbed out, with Brandini becoming the de facto starter for the final two weeks of the season, but these changes paid no dividends, and the team continued to be plagued by late game struggles. They eventually finished at 5-13 and in 8th place, with the franchise's first playoff berth remaining elusive.

2018 Season[edit]

The NALCS switched to a franchised system to begin the 2018 Season, and Echo Fox were one of the six existing teams awarded a franchise slot. Going into the Spring Split, they completely rebuilt their roster, adding 2017 Worlds finalist Huni in the top lane, controversial jungler Dardoch, former Team Liquid mid laner Fenix and Altec and Adrian, the botlane of the disbanded Team Dignitas. While this roster did not lack for talent, there were many questions about how the team would come together, as Dardoch, Fenix, and Adrian had all acquired a reputation for being difficult teammates, with Echo Fox being Dardoch's fourth NALCS team in the past year. Defying these expectations, Echo Fox began the split in excellent form, not losing a game until week 3 and never ending a week worse than tied for first. In particular, both Huni and Dardoch were playing well. However, the team began to cool off as the meta shifted away from the top lane carries preferred by Huni, going 1-1 in week 7 and then suffering their first 0-2 week, though they remained in first place and clinched their first playoff spot as an organization. Their bot lane was exposed as a particular problem, as Altec's preferred Kalista was nerfed, and they were unwilling to play the strongly meta Xayah and Rakan. Going into week 9 still fighting for a playoff bye, the team shockingly elected to sub Echo Fox Academy players Damonte and Papa Chau in for Fenix and Adrian. Even with the substitute lineup, Echo Fox still managed to beat the bottom-tier FlyQuest, but then lost an incredibly close game to the surging 100 Thieves to finish in a tie with them for first, necessitating a tiebreaker. 100 Thieves won again, leaving Echo Fox in second place. Despite the late season decline, both Huni and Dardoch were named to the NALCS First Team.

Their second place finish still secured them a bye to the semifinals, where Echo Fox faced off against the fourth seeded Team Liquid, with Fenix and Adrian subbed back in. Despite Echo Fox's stronger finish in the regular season, most analysts favored the more veteran Liquid, and they would be proved correct as TL triumphed by a 3-1 score. Echo Fox was then sent to the fourth place match against the surprising Clutch Gaming, where they regained their dignity with a quick 3-0 sweep, netting them 50 Championship Points and a spot at the 2018 NA-EU Rift Rivals, the first international event for the organization.

Echo Fox announced no roster changes going into the summer split, but beginning in Week 2, Adrian was replaced by academy support Feng. Echo Fox did not start the summer as dominant as the spring but still showed themselves to be a solid team, going 4-2 over the first three weeks. After Week 3, they competed at Rift Rivals 2018 and recorded the only win for NA in the bracket stage, but their region lost the event.

Upon the resumption of the regular season, academy mid laner Damonte, who had been suspended for the first three weeks due to solo queue toxicity, replaced Fenix on the starting roster. This was followed by an even more shocking series of moves at the end of Week 5: Altec, Adrian, and Fenix were all released, academy bot laner Lost was promoted to the main squad, and Feng was traded to Cloud9 in exchange for Smoothie. These moves, which happened just before the roster lock deadline, were controversial, and eventually led to a new rule prohibiting such last-second changes.

With only Dardoch and Huni remaining from the roster that had started the summer split, Echo Fox when 4-4 over the final four weeks to end up 10-8, in a four-way tie for third place. In the tiebreaker bracket, they defeated TSM, but lost to 100 Thieves once again in the final round to end up in fourth place.

In the summer playoffs, Echo Fox matched up against TSM in the quarterfinals. The series was close, and Echo Fox initially took a 2-1 lead but dropped the last two games and was eliminated from the playoffs. Their playoff appearances gave them the third seed in the Regional Finals, where they easily dispatched Clutch Gaming 3-0 in the first round, only to be swept themselves by TSM in the second round, ending their season.

2019 Season[edit]

Echo Fox completedly redid their roster for 2019, acquiring former Clutch Gaming players Solo, Apollo and Hakuho, along with Korean jungler Rush, who made his return to the LCS after three years. Fenix also rejoined to round out the roster.

Echo Fox started out the season consistently, losing every game played on Saturday and winning every game played on Sunday for the first four weeks, a streak tied to Rush that was said to date back to his first tenure in the NA LCS from 2015-2016. However, this streak was broken in Week 5 with Echo Fox's first 0-2 week, causing Rush, whose play had been questionable even in wins, to be replaced by academy jungler Panda. Rather than reversing the team's fortunes, this move caused Echo Fox to lose their next four games. Rush then returned, and Echo Fox shot back up again, upsetting the first and second place Team Liquid and Cloud9 and defeating CLG on the last day of the season to secure the sixth and final playoff spot. This matched them up against third place TSM in the playoff quarterfinals. Echo Fox managed to take the first game, but lost the next three against the higher-seeded team, ending their split.

The midseason was quiet for Echo Fox from a roster standpoint, but rocky in all other ways, as founder and face of the organization Rick Fox announced in April that he would be leaving the organization due to alleged racial slurs used by a shareholder. The LCS conducted its own investigation and announced in May that Echo Fox must take "corrective action" within 60 days or risk losing their LCS slot.

Under this cloud, Echo Fox started the summer split with academy players Yusui and Lost playing in place of Fenix and Apollo, breaking Apollo and Hakuho's streak of playing every game together that stretched back to 2017. The team struggled to begin the split, leading to Fenix and Apollo returning, but this too failed to turn the team around. Echo Fox then tried Lourlo in the top lane, as well as Panda and former Rookie of the Split MikeYeung in the jungle, but no roster seemed to produce consistent results, and they ended the split in last place with a 4-14 record, and did not have enough championship points to play in the regional qualifier.

In August, Echo Fox submitted a proposal to sell their LCS slot to Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, a conglomerate that owned multiple sports teams, along with the Los Angeles Gladiators of the Overwatch League. When this did not come to fruition, Riot Games reached an agreement with Echo Fox to terminate their participation in the LCS and sell their vacant seed. This seed was eventually sold to Evil Geniuses, and Echo Fox was disbanded.
