Biography

Eric Wrona was born on May 3rd, 1991 and is from Zionsville, Indiana.

Halo 3

Snip3down began his professional career with an impressive 7th place finish attending MLG Meadowlands 2008 as a member of team Ambush with Eli, Gun_Shot and sSilent. He then jumped around a few teams at the start of his career, attending his second event with Instinct. He and Lunchbox, Roy and Mackeo placed 2nd in San Diego. From there he went to Triggers Down and won Orlando with FearitSelf, Hysteria and SK. He then left to compete with Str8 Rippin in Toronto and won that event as well. Alongside ElamaiteWarrior, Legit and Tsquared, Snipedown had finally found consistency. He would stay with this team for the rest of 2008, finishing 2nd in Dallas and winning the National Championship in Vegas. In Vegas, Snipedown also won the 2008 Old Spice Rising Star award, earning a $5,000 prize. The roster stayed together throughout the entirety of 2009 where they would place 4th in Meadowlands, win Columbus, finish 4th in Dallas, 2nd in Anaheim and 6th in Orlando.

The Str8 Rippin roster would finally make a change in 2010, with ElamiteWarrior being switched for Heinz. They finished 8th in Orlando and 10th in Columbus. Snipedown then left to join Believe the Hype for the rest of the year. There he played alongside Demon D, Heinz and Maniac in Raleigh and finished in 6th. The team then played D.C. with TiZoXiC in place of Heinz, they ended up finishing 11th and proceeded to play at the Dallas National Championships with the same lineup, finishing in 5th place out of 8 teams.

Halo: Reach

Snipedown started 2011 on Dynasty with Destin, Tizoxic and GH057ayame and attended MLG Dallas where he finished in 8th. GH057ayame was then swapped for Heinz and they attended Columbus and Anaheim finishing in 3rd and 6th respectively. They played Raleigh with Cloud in place of Destin and finished in 4th. He and Cloud then left to join Maniac and Reliable in Snipedown's return to Believe the Hype. They would place 12th in Orlando and 3rd in Providence.

He would begin 2012 as a member of Carbon and attend Columbus with Ryanoob, Blaze and Assault, finishing 7-8th. The team would then attend AGL 1 Chicago and finish 2nd. He would join Blaze, Ryanoob and Ninja to form Elite 4 and attend AGL 2 Columbus where he would again finish 2nd.

Halo 4

Snipedown began Halo 4 back on Ambush, this time with Formal, APG and Heinz for the MLG Fall Championship 2012 where they would finish in 2nd place. They would then attend and win both AGL 3 Chicago and, with APG replaced by iGotUrPistola, AGL 5 Nashville. He then attended and won AGL Pittsburgh with the G4C Misfits along with Ninja, APG and Proverb before returning to the Ambush lineup to win both AGL 7 Knoxville and UMG Chicago 2013. Ambush then attended AGL 8 Knoxville, where they placed 4th at Snipedown's last Halo 4 event.

Halo 2: Anniversary

At the launch of the MCC, Snip3down represented eXcellence with Ace, StrongSide and iGotUrPistola and won the 2014 PAX Prime Showdown. He was then signed by OpTic Gaming and attended the ESL MCC Launch Invitational as a member of OpTic Gaming with Ace, Flamesword, and iGoturpistola and finished 5th/6th. Snipedown and iGotUrPistola left OpTic at the start of the HCS Season to join Evil Geniuses with Roy and Lunchbox. They finished 2nd at Iron Games Columbus 2014 and Snipedown was named MVP of the event. Following Iron Games, Evil Geniuses was forced to make a team change when Pistola was injured, and brought in Lethul to replace him. This squad placed 3rd at UGC St. Louis 2015. The same squad returned well practiced at Gamers For Giving 2015, and dominated the tournament, sweeping rivals Counter Logic Gaming in the finals to seize the #1 seed going into the season finals at PAX East 2015. At PAX, EG dominated, sweeping CLG 3-0 in the finals to win the event. Snip3down was eventually voted the MVP of season 1 by the community after being nominated by his peers.

Snipedown and Evil Geniuses kicked off season 2 at Iron Games Atlanta 2015, where despite losing the first series of the Grand Finals to Denial eSports, they were able to fight back and take the extended series 3-1 and win their 3rd consecutive event. At HCS Indianapolis, Snip3down and EG's dominance continued, as they won their fourth consecutive LAN event, this time not dropping a single series. At the HCS Season 2 Finals, Snipedown and EG finished in 1st, despite dropping the initial Grand Finals series to Counter Logic Gaming.

Halo 5

Halo World Championship 2016

The dominant EG lineup stuck together until January 2016, when Lethul opted to leave to join Counter Logic Gaming. In Lethul's place, EG picked up the relatively new Commonly. This lead to a rivalry between Snipedown and Lethul. At X Games Aspen 2016, EG won the first chapter of the rivalry, defeating CLG 4-3 in the finals and winning gold medals. At the HWC NA Regional Finals 2016, EG were defeated 4-0 in the semifinals by CLG, ending their historic tournament winning streak. At the Halo World Championship 2016 EG got reverse swept by Renegades to advance out of their pool in second and got the toughest draw of the tournament as they had to play Counter Logic Gaming in the first round of bracket play. CLG ended EG's time at Worlds quickly as they won the series 4-0 and sent Evil Geniuses' home with a top 8 finish.

Pro League

Shortly after the HWC concluded Commonly was released from the roster and was placed by Suspector, who is just coming off of a second place finish at Worlds. Since Suspector was a member of the now broken up Allegiance team, EG received an invite to the HCS Pro League Invitational 2016 at PAX East 2016. It was at this tournament that EG beat Team EnVyUs, dominated OpTic Gaming, and then took down EnVy again in the grand finals to secure their spot in the Halo Championship Series Pro League 2016.

Trivia

  • Snipedown has won at least one event as a member of six different teams: Triggers Down, Str8 Rippin, Ambush, G4C Misfits, eXcellence and Evil Geniuses.
  • Fittingly, Snipedown is considered one of the best snipers in the game by pros and fans alike.
