Feng, NintendudeX, and Yusui Join Echo Fox Academy Roster
Echo Fox is proud to announce the addition of three new players to the League of Legends roster. Xiao-Feng “Feng” Wang will be returning to the team to play support, David “Yusui” Bloomquist will be joining the team in mid lane and Josh “NintendudeX” Atkins will be taking over in the top lane.
During the Spring Split, Echo Fox Academy completed an amazing comeback run to end the regular season in the fourth place. Echo Fox powered through Spring playoffs to upset Team Liquid 3-1 in the semifinals. Echo Fox took on FlyQuest in the Academy Grand Finals bringing the series to a fifth and final game but ended up finishing in second place.
Yusui, Feng, and NintendudeX bring in a large amount of experience with competitive League of Legends that will be of great use to the team. As both NintendudeX and Feng have played multiple other positions on the Rift, their wealth of knowledge and variety of playstyles will give Echo Fox Academy a leg up in the Summer Split.
Wang “Feng” Xiao-Feng
Over the course of his competitive career, Feng has played multiple positions including top, ADC, and support. Having previously played for Team Liquid Academy and Team Impulse, Feng has a long history of stage and competitive experience. Feng is also the only new player to have been part of a previous Echo Fox roster. Last summer, Feng was part of Echo Fox’s ten-man roster as a support along with Gate. Feng’s knowledge of the game and mechanical skill will help boost Echo Fox’s bot lane in the upcoming split.
David “Yusui” Bloomquist
Yusui first stepped into competitive League of Legends in 2014 when he joined Team Gyrations alongside his new teammate NintendudeX. The mid laner then joined Cloud9 Tempest in 2015 to fight for a spot in the North American Challenger Series. While the team was not able to qualify, Yusui gained valuable experience with some of the current LCS pros including Solo, LOD, and Stixxay.
Josh “NintendudeX” Atkins
Making his name as a jungler, NintendudeX has played for multiple teams in the NA LCS. Some of his most notable appearances include playing with Good Game University, Team Coast, and Team Fusion. NintendudeX participated in the 2017 Scouting Grounds and proved he was still a high-caliber player. Now he joins the Echo Fox roster in the top lane to show everyone the power of “The Dude”.
Yusui and NintendudeX will join the Echo Fox Academy roster to return to action today playing Team Liquid Academy in the first game of the Summer Split. Support the team live at twitch.tv/echofoxgg.
