On the 24th of November, Clutch Gaming announced that Apollo, Hakuho, and Solo have been transferred to Echo Fox.
Apollo “Apollo” Price, Nickolas “Hakuho” Surgent, and Colin “Solo” Earnest played for Clutch Gaming during the 2018 season. Although they had a good start by finishing 4th in the playoffs during the spring split, they were able to win only 6 out of 18 games in the summer split.
Echo Fox had always been a contender for the championship, fell short in both spring and summer. In spring, they finished 3rd, but in the summer, they were eliminated in the quarterfinals and also failed to reach Worlds by losing to TSM in the second round of regional qualifiers.
With sources saying Heo “Huni” Seung-hoon and Tanner “Damonte” Damonte have signed with Clutch Gaming, it is uncertain who else will join these two players along with Nam “LirA” Tae-yoo.
Meanwhile, Echo Fox has yet confirmed the roster move. They have signed head coach Kim “SSONG” Sang-soo and released Andy “Smoothie” Ta during the offseason. Fans are eager to find out how the roster will turn out for both teams.
