Echo Fox allows players to exit

Echo Fox has released a statement allowing its players to look for other organizations in which to further their careers while the organization tries to rebuild.

After a slew of bad results, bombing out of ELEAGUE two weeks ago and more recently from the iBP Masters—thus failing to qualify for IEM Oakland—last weekend, rumors about the team not staying together going forward abounded.


The North American market may now experience some turbulence 

Echo Fox has since tweeted an official statement in which it gives its players the option to seek other organizations to play for. Meanwhile, the North American organization has also stated it will make structural changes to build towards having a winning CS team in the future. The statement reads as follows:

Echo Fox's lineup up to now:

United States Sean "seang@res" Gares
United States Daniel "roca" Gustaferri
United States Ronnie "ryx" Bylicki
United States Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan
United States Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir

pimp. hiko is unchangable.
2016-11-16 22:31
they could change pimp, and then put hiko back in his c9 role where he dominated
2016-11-16 22:34
Pimp has been outstanding for Liquid lately though...He's a god
2016-11-16 22:34
they should pull a faze and just leave pimp on the bench for a month or two, if hiko doesnt perform in his old role in which he played well then -hiko +pimp

It should be interesting to see build and see what the players will do. It would be cool to see Sean Gares be a analyst
2016-11-16 22:25
+1, he'd be one of the best once he got more used to the camera. Either that or a coach. His heart is in building a family right now and I don't think that leaves him much time to stay a pro.

top tier management right there they have no better team to leave for apart from arguably sean, so they're just gonna fuck around with this team until they get so bad they actually get kicked (which according to EF's management hasn't happened yet...)

lol most teams in the world would want sg@res as IGL/coach, and almost every NA team would have a spot for ryx or roca. The other two would fill lots of NA teams and most of the t3 too.

probably coaching role or analyst job
2016-11-16 22:40
"allow them to leave and seek options elsewhere" more like "you guys are kicked get the fuck out right now"
2016-11-16 22:36
I can imagine roca and ryx getting signed pretty quickly by a team that lacks firepower i.e CLG, and I can also imagine sgares being signed as a coach or analyst for c9 or another top NA team. Not sure about the other ones.

Honestly CLG should invest in sgares. Rebuild the whole team with hazed & koosta! or even replace koosta with shahzam who is more consistent & Daps,ryx , freak davey etc are all teamless too. But they should take there time making the roster OR Complexity putup the money for sgares.

CLG has a lot of room to work with as their team on paper is by far weaker, but with that being said picking up the entire roster is not gonna work, OpTic might also find a way for these people to fit into their team, I love Echo Fox for their character and want them to succeed
