In a short series, Echo Fox took the 3rd place title against Clutch Gaming 3-0 on Saturday. The team now qualifies for North America’s last spot at Rift Rivals versus Europe, as well as scores a handful of championship points to help them qualify for the 2018 World Championship.
In the press conference above, team founder Rick Fox, top laner Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon, jungler Joshua “Dardoch” Hartnett, mid laner Kim “Fenix” Jae-hun, AD Carry Johnny “Altec” Ru, support Adrian Ma, and coach Nick “Inero” Smith talk about their matches, their shoe game, and more.
The team also gave their predictions for the finals match on Sunday about who they were going to win between 100 Thieves and Team Liquid. Across the board, the group confirmed that Team Liquid would be taking the trophy, with Kim switching decisions last minute just to give 100 Thieves some support.
The team fit right in with the setting and backdrop as they were sporting their special Miami-themed jerseys made for the event, which were designed by Haley Hey.
