Echo Fox Expands into the CS:GO Realm

Echo Fox adds CS:GO to its portfolio with Torque

Owned by former NBA player and actor Rick Fox, Echo Fox has signed the former Torqued lineup, led by ex-Cloud9 player and part time analyst Sean “sgares” Gares and well known Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) personality Mohamad “m0E” Assad. Fox now adds this team to his organization alongside his existing League of Legends team.

While speaking to ESPN's Austin Kelley, Rick Fox said:

“My vision for Echo Fox has always been much larger than League of Legends. League is clearly a key component and a great starting point as the most played PC game in the world, but I am building what I intend to be the preeminent eSports empire”

Fox also told ESPN that he wants this team to qualify and be a leading team in Turner’s upcoming ELEAGUE.

On his stream, m0E has been frequently stating that he has to be “TV ready if you know what I mean” for some time now, and now we know why.

The full team aside from sgares and m0E is Armeen “a2z” Toussi, Try “tck Martin and Ronnie “ryx” Bylicki.

This is just one of many expansions made by organisations recently, with OpTic branching into CS:GO and Luminosity opening up a Call of Duty team, so our question is who do you think has made the best move?
