‘Chiu on This’ is a short and regular opinion blast
Echo Fox announced its Challenger team Friday that features an all-star team of…streamers. It included: Imaqtpie, Scarra, Dyrus, Voyboy and Shiphtur. This move comes after the official announcement of the NA LCS franchising next year. The point of franchising was to get more money for everyone and for the Challenger Series was to become a league to develop talent in theory.
In practice, we have this team. As Marcel Feldcamp put it:
The brand EchoFox just became about 1000x more appealing to every endemic and non-endemic sponsor. Hard to say no to over 8M reach

EchoFox made the move to get them more money. Theory is one thing, practice another. It’s become sort of pointless.
