So according to today’s ESPN report, Immortals is out and Echo Fox is in the NA LCS.
So that leads to the question: what is it that you need to get in? As an org, Immortals has everything you’d want from the outside: Great branding, good history, strong fan base, seemingly good financials, and a strong history of good results.
History I don’t think is a clear indicator. Dignitas has more history than Echo Fox. Results aren’t a good indicator; Echo Fox is in. Branding isn’t a good indicator; I’d argue EnVyUs/Immortals is far better than someone like CLG. Fan base isn’t it either as Immortals has a strong fanbase in League of Legends as that was the org’s first game. Being an org with a proven track record of trying to be competitive cannot be it either, as Echo Fox is considered a joke and this was also the org whose sub team was just a bunch of streamers.
Just from the outside, the criteria list doesn’t make sense to me.
