'The world is not just League of Legends' - Echo Fox's manager talks about recent acquisition of fighting game super team

Posted by John 'Velociraptor' Guerrero • January 8, 2017 at 6:17 p.m. PST

The big story in the fighting game community right now is how Echo Fox became the scariest FGC eSports entity overnight.

Echo Fox believes they've found gold in this emerging market, and has gone in acquiring players, growing their brand and making as big of a splash as possible amongst audiences the world around.

Justin Wong, Tokido, Momochi and Sonic Fox are just a few of the new members of the FOX roster heading into 2017. Team front man Jace Hall granted an exclusive interview to Yahoo eSports to discuss Echo Fox's perspective as they grow into one of the biggest eSports organizations we've ever seen.

It is interesting watching each of these interviews from each of the new members of EchoFox and Jace. SonicFox's interview was one of the most informative in my opinion (in regards to why he joined it since it probably applies to the others also).

Well yeah you sure don't need to put a gun to their heads when you're already picking up the top of the top players.

Also does ChocoBlanka get a bonus sponsorship every time with Momochi? Because I haven't seen her achieve anything yet.

Course league of legends is not the only esports, there is dota 2 and overwatch as well.

I found what jace hall had to say fascinating and just illustrates how big things are getting. Sfv might have suffered initially but now I feel they made the sacrifice earlier with content that could pay off later in the e-sports arena. They are at the forefront for fighting games in that realm and that could pay really big dividends going forward.

Players jumping from one sponsor to another is nothing new nor is it going to change anything. It's a fact. Don't get what the whole excitement is about. Julio has already been associated with them; what did they do different than any other sponsor out there?

In the Antonio Javier interview, he says Choco's there because of Shinobism and he hints that it's something Echo Fox wants to do more of.
