Echo Fox is a North American team.

History

Echo Fox was announced on December 18th, 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.
