Alex Zanguzen Shnayder or Zang is an old school smasher from New Jersey who mains Falco. He is also well-known for being one of the first players to win a set against Mew2King back in 2005. Since his reemergence in 2014, he has taken sets off players such as KJH, Cactuar, G$, Android, Zhu, and Hax. He was previously ranked 6th on the New Jersey Melee Power Rankings.
Zanguzen is one of the very few professionals that have successfully maintained the position of a major tournament threat from the early years of the Golden age to the 2014 age and onward. It is interesting to note that at Apex 2015, one of if not the largest Melee tournaments of all time, Zanguzen placed higher than Ken, tied with PC Chris, and placed just one spot lower than KoreanDJ, three players who had dominated the Golden Age when Zanguzen was first active.
Zang is well noted for his style of play, generally considered to be "old-school," relying on heavy reads, pillaring, zoning with up-tilts, and patient laser camping instead of fast technical play seen in more current smashers such as Westballz.
