"Sneaky" (Real Name: Zachary Scuderi) is an American League of Legends player, current ADC for Cloud9.

For the Dutch AD carry, see Sneaky (Chris Esser).


One of North America's best AD Carries since 2012, Sneaky has been a staple for Cloud9 since their inception. Originally a Mid Laner for Ordinance Gaming, he quickly transitioned into an AD Carry and bounced around on several NA teams, one of which included Team Dignitas. Eventually he ended up on Quantic Gaming and together with the original C9 roster which consisted of him, Balls, Meteos, Hai and LemonNation, they qualified for the NA LCS. In their first split they completely dominated the competition and won the NA LCS.

Sneaky and LemonNation in particular gained a reputation for playing the combination of Ashe and Zyra, as well as being a very stable and consistent bottom lane. Despite being dominant in NA, Cloud9 lost to Fnatic in the Quarterfinals of the Season 3 World Championship. The next year they would win the Spring Split again but lost to Team SoloMid in the finals of Summer. Since then Sneaky has been on a quest to win the NA LCS for the third time, as well as finally getting past the Quarterfinals at a World Championship.

Career History

A native of Winter Springs, Florida, just north of Orlando, Sneaky played World of WarCraft competitively achieving highest rated Mage Rogue in 2v2's sometime in Season 6. He also played a lot of HoN, along with playing DOTA on the side. Prior to LoL, He was studying Computer Science for a year at Florida Atlantic University before entering the NA LCS.

He began playing League of Legends back in Beta after he received a Beta invite. However, his initial reaction was that the game sucked. This was because in his first game he had no map at all and could only see the champions, towers, and minions. He didn't get into LoL until a few months later when he became bored of Heroes of Newearth.  Gangplank was his first played champion, but he believes  Veigar was his first main. Sneaky's competitive LoL career was kicked started when he was first asked to join a team with jpak after being noticed in Solo Queue. He joined Absolute Legends North America along with jpak in hopes of gaining some competitive experience as well as having fun playing in tournaments. After the team broke up, he created a new team with Kenikth, Onionbagel, Kevîn, and Support Daddy under Pulse eSports. But after losing qualifiers at MLG and IPL and several roster changes, he began to lose confidence in his teams ability to qualify for the summer promotion tournament. Sneaky joined Quantic Gaming on April 6th, 2013 and proceeded to qualify for the 2013 NA LCS Summer Split and subsequently joined Cloud9 when C9 re-acquired the Quantic roster ahead of their LCS debut.

Outside of League of Legends, Sneaky enjoys playing video games, along with watching good T.V. shows, such as Dexter, The Walking Dead and Breaking Bad. He has spoken about coaching or returning to school at the end of his career as a League pro gamer.

2015 Preseason

Cloud 9 was the North American team fan-voted to IEM San Jose.[1] They defeated paiN Gaming 2-0, Alliance 2-1, and then Unicorns of Love 3-0 to win the tournament. Sneaky capped off the finals against UOL with a game-winning pentakill on  Corki.

2015 Season

Due to their IEM San Jose victory, Cloud9 qualified for IEM Katowice in March. They lost their only two games, first to GE Tigers and then to yoe Flash Wolves, and finished in 7th/8th place. Domestically, they underperformed at the start of the season, and were in 8th place at the end of the second week of the spring LCS split. However, they improved over the course of the season, ending with a second-place finish behind Team SoloMid and a playoff bye; after beating Team Liquid 3-2, Cloud9 lost to TSM 1-3 in the finals and finished the split overall in second place.

Cloud9 replaced mid laner Hai with Incarnati0n at the start of the Summer Split due to Hai's retirement. They performed poorly for the first five weeks of the split and replaced Meteos with Hai going into the sixth week. With Hai back on the team, Cloud9's record improved from 3-7 to 6-12 by the end of the split, and they finished in 7th place after a tie-breaker victory against Team 8, narrowly avoiding relegations and retaining their Championship Points, though they did not qualify for playoffs. In the Regional Finals Gauntlet, Cloud9 reverse-swept both Gravity Gaming and Team Impulse before beating Team Liquid 3-1 in the finals. Their fourteen games played over the course of three days gave them North America's third seed to the 2015 Season World Championship, Cloud9's third-consecutive Worlds. Notably, Sneaky played Vayne in four games (3-1) and Draven twice (2-0), and had a 10.09 KDA across Cloud9's victories; he also received the MVP title for the final series of the gauntlet.

Considered an underdog at Worlds, Cloud9 were placed into Group B along with Fnatic, ahq, and Invictus Gaming and expected to place last. Instead, they surprised with an undefeated 3-0 first week. In the second week, Cloud9 needed only one win to advance to the quarterfinals but were unable to find it, losing four games in a row including a tiebreaker loss to ahq. They placed third in their group, ahead of only Invictus Gaming.

2016 Season

For the 2016 season, Cloud9 added two new players - Rush and Bunny FuFuu - and moved Hai to support, with the intention of splitting time with Bunny. However, after two losses with Bunny and two wins with Hai in the spring split, they committed to starting Hai fulltime and rose to a 67% winrate, with a third-place seed in the playoffs. However, despite a seeding advantage, the team lost to TSM in the first round and were eliminated.
