ROX has taken their first steps into the world of fighting games by signing legendary Tekken 7 player Knee.
Knee is a South Korean Tekken 7 player that's currently considered to be amongst the very best. Knee is a very respected Tekken player, and many in the Tekken community will often look up to him and his fighter tier lists.
After Knee's recent performance at the 2017 Evolution Championship Series, in which Knee placed third, ROX approached Knee with a deal. As expected, Knee happily took the deal and he's now a part of the ever-growing ROX family.
Knee has pulled in wins and trophies from around the world in Tekken tournaments since 2007. 10 years later, Knee is still going strong and he's still considered to be one of the best players, if not the best, in the scene.
ROX made a statement on the recent acquisition of Knee. "We were impressed with Knee's consistent level of play and his ability to perform at the highest level for over a decade now," said Eliot Namgung, Director of Esports for ROX Gaming. "His personality, skill level and class all align with the ideals that ROX instills in its players and teams."
Knee also made his own statement, mentioning that Knee will try even harder now that he's joined the ROX family. Does this mean we'll be seeing Knee going in even harder in future events? That'd certainly be exciting to see.
