Eric "Snip3down" Wrona is an American player for Team EnVyUs. He is one of the most successful players in competitive Halo history, with an MLG National Championship, an HCS Pro League title and two HCS Season titles to his name. He is well known for his time on Str8 Rippin, Evil Geniuses, and Ambush among other teams.

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: Guardians

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.

Shortly after Worlds, EG dropped Commonly and replaced him with Suspector. The team qualified for the Summer Pro League at the PAX Invitational. At the conclusion of the season, EG sat in 5th place, not enough to qualify for Season Finals but enough to secure a spot in the Fall Season.

Despite the team's qualification, Snip3down left EG to join Team EnVyUs alongside Mikwen, Pistola and Huke during the offseason. After beating OpTic Gaming (formerly CLG) in a scrim, and later a Pro League match, the roster began to be considered as a threat to OpTic's position of dominance. At HCS Orange County 2016, EnVy finished 2nd, losing to OpTic in the finals with a 2-10 overall map count against them. A few weeks later, EnVyUs attended UGC St. Louis 2016 with OpTic member LethuL subbing in for the absent Mikwen. Under the team name Truce, referencing the former bad blood between Snip3down and LethuL, the roster took 1st place at the event. EnVy ended up finishing the season with a 13-1 record, good enough for 1st place. Weeks later, EnVyUs attended HCS Las Vegas 2016, where they finished 1st over five other Pro League teams, not including OpTic Gaming. Snip3down also won the FFA, taking home $3,000 for himself. At the Season Finals, EnVyUs successfully captured the throne as they defeated OpTic in two straight best-of-7s (after losing 4-1 in the Winners Finals) to secure 1st place.

At the first event of HaloWC 2017 season - UGC St. Louis 2017 - EnVyUs came out strong, but were again defeated in the WB Finals by OpTic. This time around, they were denied a Grand Finals rematch after losing to Team Liquid in a 5-game thriller. EnVyUs placed below 2nd for the first time since the inception of the roster. At ME Las Vegas 2017, EnVyUs easily qualified for Worlds with victories over Second Nature and Team CryptiK. They were then defeated 4-1 by Team Liquid, forcing them to make a Losers Bracket run by defeating Luminosity Gaming (4-3) and Pnda Gaming (4-1) to earn a rematch, which they lost 4-2, resulting in a 3rd place finish for EnVyUs. At Worlds, EnVyUs took an early loss to Splyce in Pool Play, resulting in a first round matchup against Team Liquid in the bracket. Liquid defeated them 4-3, sending them to LB Round 1 at the biggest tournament of the year. EnVyUs didn't die easy however, sweeping through Supremacy, TMMT Crowd Pleasers, Luminosity Gaming and Str8 Rippin before taking Liquid out 4-2 in a rematch and earning a spot in the Grand Finals against OpTic Gaming. OpTic made short work of EnVyUs, sweeping them 4-0 and taking their second straight World Championship.

At the first event of the 2017 season, UMG Daytona, EnVyUs won their pool with victories and started the Championship Bracket off with back-to-back sweeps. In the third round, EnVyUs went up against Oxygen Supremacy, a team from the Open Bracket coming off upsets over pro teams. EnVy dropped the first two games of the series but successfully rallied to take a 3-2 victory. In the Winners Finals, they were defeated by OpTic Gaming in their first matchup on the 2017 settings. After a 4-0 sweep over Team Liquid, EnVy moved onto the Grand Final and won two straight game sevens over OpTic to win their first event since the Fall Finals.
