SonicFox Parts Ways with Critical Reaction
Dominique “SonicFox” Mclean, the self-proclaimed Furry and established Mortal Kombat X champ, announced yesterday that he will be calling it quits with his team, Critical Reaction.
“I would like to announce my departure from @Team_cR !” wrote SonicFox via Twitter, “They have been way too good to me, and I have enjoyed many years with them!”
For those that don’t know his name, SonicFox is presently ranked #143 in highest overall earnings according to e-Sports Earnings, however, he is #13 in highest earnings for players from just the United States. Before SonicFox turned 18 years old, he earned $182,175.20 in cash prizes from 39 tournaments, which is more than some of us will make in 3/4 years.
He may be known more for being the top Mortal Kombat player in the FGC but SonicFox is far from a one-trick pony. He also plays Dead or Alive 5: Last Round, Injustice: Gods Among Us, is second in Shoryuken’s Skullgirls rankings, and has been known to dabble in some Street Fighter V. However, there’s a reason he’s best known for his play in Mortal Kombat – all it takes is one look at his handiwork from Evo 2014, 2015, and 2016, where he placed first each year.
Critical Reaction was just as sad to see Sonic Fox go as he was to leave. The group has a very close bond, which could be seen in their goodbye Tweet to the fighting game champ, saying, “We love you bro! You will be missed! All the love in the world to you! :-)” SonicFox replied that Critical Reaction will, “always have a special place in my heart. But I now have bigger goals set in the future. Keep your eyes out! You’re always
SonicFox replied that Critical Reaction will, “always have a special place in my heart. But I now have bigger goals set in the future.”
These kids melt the heart. Stream.me would also like to say good luck SonicFox! Show the world what you are made of!
