With the addition of Sean "sgares" Gares to their roster, Torqued seemed posied to be one of the most promising teams in the North American region. Their hype seems to have caught the attention of one of the most money-ladened organizations currently recruiting, Echo Fox, owned by hugely sucessfuly NBA star Rick Fox.
In a statement to ESPN eSports, Rick Fox had the following to say about the organization's latest acquisition:
Given my desire to have one of the leading franchises in ELEAGUE, I have spent the past several months putting together the best team possible. The team we signed is led by some of the top players in the game. m0E is a household name in the CS:GO community and has over 500,000 followers on Twitch. sgares led his team to a first-place finish in the IBuyPower Cup last year and was rated as the best in-game leader in North America. I know these two, as well as the others, were all being courted by other top teams. We are excited to have them as part of the Echo Fox family and expect to do big things together.”
Echo Fox now has the following roster:
Sean "sgares" Gares
Mohamad "mOE" Assad
Armeen "a2z" Toussi
