Echo Fox adds Saint and JDCR of Tekken fame to their strong fighting game eSports team

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • February 6, 2017 at 11:57 a.m. PST

Echo Fox has expanded their already strong fighting game eSports team this morning with the addition of two Tekken greats. Choi "Saint" Jinwoo and Kim "JDCR" Hyun-Jun have officially joined the Echo Fox roster.

Last month, Echo Fox made waves in the fighting game community by signing nine prominent individuals including champions such as Justin Wong, Tokido, Momochi, SonicFox, and more. The eSports organization now ventures into the realm of Tekken, bringing on last year's EVO champion and a competitive Tekken legend -- Saint and JDCR, respectively.

“When we expanded our fighting game team last month we did it knowing that it was only the first step towards becoming a dominating force in the fighting game community," owner of team Echo Fox, Rick Fox, told theScore esports.

"By signing the two of the best Tekken players in the world, Saint and JDCR, we’re moving closer to that goal. I’m pleased to welcome them both to the team.”

The team is building up to be the stuff of legends, but it seems they can't play as such. Hopefully by this year they'll prove me wrong

So what is echo fox actually promoting?

Yea I haven't really been able to tell either. In fact, I have a hard time seeing what a ton of teams are trying to promote. At least EG has people hawking Monster and whatnot. Does the EchoFox jersey have sponsors littered on them like EG?

Ok, the fact they aren't just signing Capcom players shows that these guys are serious.

This Echo Fox thing is reminding me more and more of a WWE style storyline. This team is freaking godlike right now in theory, can't wait to see it all in action.

I'm looking forward to seeing their results this year. Their members have been doing well so far.

Echo Fox has been spending way too much money. It's sort of like a spoiled rich kid going on a year long shopping spree just to find out his parents aren't as wealthy as he thinks.

Echo Fox will last through 2017 but rumors of money problems will pop up near the end of the year and they will start dropping players in 2018.

After his performance at the super bowl, Tom Brady is now signed to Echo Fox.
