Ethan "iaguz" Zugai (born November 9, 1990) is a retired Australian Terran player.

Since late 2017 he played Zerg.


iaguz is an Australian player living in Sydney. Before SC2 he was known as one of Australia's top Red Alert 3 players, one of the few successful RA3 converts to the StarCraft genre along with deth. Before RA3 he already had a rich strategy game background, playing games like Dawn of War and Company of Heroes at a reasonably competitive level, and in the world of tabletop gaming played several games from the Warhammer series.

iaguz is also a founding member of Xeria Gaming, an SEA based Gaming organization which launch in August 2011 along with his team mates, Light, MaFia and JazBas.

Wings Of Liberty[edit]

iaguz was a noted performer in some of Australia's earliest tournaments in beta, but once Wings of Liberty was released he held off getting involved in the competitive scene until relatively late. In Wings of Liberty, iaguz has proven to be a contender for any of the online SEA server events and thrives at offline events, especially around the local Sydney area. His playstyle is macro-oriented with unique timing pushes and builds.

iaguz joined Mindfreak eSports on August 9, 2012.[1]

On January 2, 2013, iaguz joined Frenetic Array.[2]

Heart of the Swarm[edit]

On January 31, 2014, iaguz joined ROOT Gaming.[3] On September 16, 2015, iaguz left ROOT Gaming.[4]

Legacy of The Void[edit]

On April 28, 2016, iaguz became a player for the newly formed esports organization Nuovo Gaming.[5] On September 27, 2016, Nuovo Gaming announced to be entering an indefinite hyatus, releasing iaguz.[6]

On November 10, 2016, it was officially announced that iaguz had rejoined OSC-ROOT Gaming.[7]
