American esports organization, Echo Fox, has disbanded after a difficult year filled with mishaps and controversies.
Although no official statement has been issued by the team, its investors have confirmed that Echo Fox is 100% dissolved.
With no financial backing, the organization has released all of its players and staff.
Echo Fox has been off-the-grid for a while now, with their last official tweet on September 2 and the team’s official website is no longer running.
“There is no Echo Fox,” said an investor speaking to win.gg, also claiming that logos and the uniforms are now “collector’s items.”
The organization started to go under after team investor, Amit Raizada, was called out for sending racist emails to another investor. Echo Fox founder Rick Fox also stepped down as a result of the controversy.
Amidst the recurring accusations between its investors, Echo Fox had to give up its League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) spot after failing to remove Raizada as an investor. Riot Games then forced the team to sell their spot to Evil Geniuses for US$30M.
Even though Echo Fox is now gone, the team remains an iconic name in esports. Other than being a solid competitor in the LCS, Echo Fox dominated the fighting game community for years with SSBU specialist Leonardo “MKLeo” Perez and Mortal Kombat and Dragonball FighterZ expert Dominique “SonicFox” McLean under their banner.
