|Intro||League of legends player|
Anthony Barkhovtsev, better known as Hard, is a Canadian League of Legends player and Jungler for Echo Fox, a team currently participating in the North American League of Legends Championship Series (NA LCS). He was announced as part of Echo Fox's starting roster on 5 January 2016. Along with two other foreign players on his team, Froggen and kfo, he missed the first game of the 2016 Spring NA LCS because his team was unable to obtain proper documentation in time.
Hard had previously played for Cloud9 Tempest in the North American League of Legends Challenger Series (NA CS). Cloud9 owner Jack Entienne alleged that LA Renegades owner Chris Badawi attempted to poach Hard while he was still under contract with C9, a claim denied by Renegades management.
Echo Fox finished 10th place, last, in the 2016 Summer NA LCS. Echo Fox survived their relegation match, partially thanks to a timely early game gank from Hard in game one.
