Niklas "Wagamama" Högström is a Swedish Dota 2 streamer and former professional player who last played for LeftOneTV.



Wagamama started playing Dota in 2004 on an amateur level.[1] He made his name in the competitive scene captaining an all-Swedish squad, consisting of, among others Mini, smulgullig and panterspot, who were picked up by "Druidz" in early 2010.[2] In a scene where teams jumped from sponsor to sponsor on a monthly basis, the Druidz squad stayed with their sponsor for more than one and a half years before they finally parted in September 2011.[3] The squad took the name "Emocore" (EMC) and went looking for a sponsor as they transitioned into Dota 2 during Autumn 2011.[3]

Dota 2[edit]

Emocore's search for a sponsor was concluded when Infused picked them up on December 21st, 2011. The squad consisted of Wagamama, Mini, Reesion, EGM aka Doney and Fishbone. On September 12th, 2012, after almost a year, the team left Infused and became known as Skånes Elit[4] until they were picked up by Pulse eSports on October 18th, 2012.[5] After a short sponsorship run with Pulse eSports the team disbanded.[6]

A month later, in February 2013, QPAD announced a Dota 2 team led by Wagamama and SingSing called QPAD Dragons, who shortly afterwards changed their name to QPAD Red Pandas.[7]

On October 14th 2016, he joined compLexity Gaming as a streamer.[8]


  • He released a YouTube video about a succinct summary of each hero on the 12th September 2016.[9]
  • Has released a number of guides for beginners or amateur-level players, including this one for players that want to improve their understanding of the game.
  • Wagamama or 我がまま means "selfishness" in Japanese.[10][11][12]
