League of Legends pro Zachary ‘Sneaky’ Scuderi was able to escape a dangerous in-game situation thanks to some incredibly fortunate timing. 

Sneaky is one of the most famous LoL players in the competitive scene, having played at the top of North America since 2013 as a member of Cloud9. 

He quickly gained a large following thanks to his incredible skills, entertaining League streams, and numerous mind-blowing cosplays of LoL champions. 

In one of his recent streams, the American was able to escape a team gank thanks to some of the, possibly, luckiest timing ever seen. 

Riot GamesSneaky has represented Cloud9 LoL since 2013.

On November 15, the popular pro was doing his usual League of Legends solo queue stream and stepped away from the game to grab a drink. He stood in what he assumed as a safe area, however, it was anything but.

Four enemies turned the corner only seconds later and opened fire on the AFK champion, only for Sneaky to return at the perfect time and move out of the way. If he returned even half a second later he would have died.

The incredibly fortunate, split-second, timing not only let him live but also revealed the position of the majority of his opponents. The American couldn’t help but enjoy the situation, letting out a quick “pfft” and a flashing a cheeky smile.

However, Sneaky’s luck didn’t last long, as he was the victim of many other ganks throughout the game and ended up losing fairly convincingly.

This was one of the American’s first streams after a tough World Championship event, where Cloud9 fell in the group stage.

He will likely continue streaming throughout 2019 as the year’s competitive season has come to an end. In addition to LoL content, Sneaky will no doubt be showing off more cosplays, and perhaps even trying out Riot’s card game, Legends of Runeterra.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
