Growing Trends in the Esports industry continue to strive and investors and entrepreneurs like Rick Fox, Amit Raizada, and Stratton Sclavos are all seeing gains in the industry with no end in sight.
With money to work with and a team of leaders hungry for success, Team Echo Fox has turned into a major player in eSports, and they only seem to be growing. The organization has several teams competing in top games. Teams are competing in Call of Duty: WWII, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. Melee, League of Legends, Gears of War 4, Mortal Kombat X, Tekken 7, Dragon Ball FighterZ and more. In 2015, the organization was able to land several prominent players who specialize in a few games to bolster their roster.
Perhaps the most notable acquisitions to this point for Echo Fox came in 2017 when they were able to sign seven fight game community players all at once. All of them were well-known players at the time, and the acquisitions announced the arrival of Echo Fox as one of the truly elite organizations around. The goal is to compete in every tournament available to the organization
Looking forward, Echo Fox hopes to make smart acquisitions to round out their rosters when necessary. With a core group of gamers already locked in, the organization can be a little bit more selective going forward. They will also be looking at specific games to compete in since there is an ever-growing number of games with a competitive circuit forming.
