Echo Fox qualify for EPL Season 4
Echo Fox defeat Luminosity 2-0 (16-4 on Train and 16-13 on Dust2) to win the ESL Pro League Season 4 North America Wild Card match and have thus qualified for the Pro League.
The North America ESL Pro League Season 4 Wild Card match was between American fan favourites Echo Fox and Brazilian team Luminosity, with the final remaining Pro League spot for Season 4 of the $750,000 league up for grabs.
Sean "seang@res" Gares and his team wasted no time proving they were the better team on Luminosity's map pick of Train, as the American squad took the first map with a 16-4 scoreline following a dominant 12-3 CT side performance.

Luminosity, whose name many still associate with the prestige of the team's former lineup earlier this year, appeared to have the upper hand on the first half of Echo Fox's map pick of Dust2, as they possessed a pretty dominant lead and only a late half comeback from Echo Fox left a halftime score of 10-5 for the Brazilians.
Echo Fox showcased that they too could display a dominant and confident T side on Dust2 and, with eleven points claimed in the second half for the American team, Echo Fox claimed the second map 16-13 and won the Season 4 Pro League Wild Card match.
