History

Echo Fox was announced on December 18th, 2015. Former basketball athlete Rick Fox purchased Gravity's NA LCS Spring 2016 seed. No players were 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.
