Sebastian ‘Chipshajen’ Widlund is a 25-year-old Swedish gamer forming part of team EnVyUs Overwatch roster. He is a smart gamer playing support position for his unit, who just happens to be at the right place at the right time making insane gameplays with Ana, Zenyatta and Mercy.
Widlund is an easy person to get along with, cracking jokes every now and then. Sebastian used to play Counter-Strike Source hunting for sharks, which in Swedish is hajen and his favourite snack for potato chips and together formed the nickname, Chipshajen.
Where it all began:
Ever since Sebastian was young he loved playing games with the aim of winning. He spent a couple of years playing soccer, which helped him think about game strategy, skill and team work. In his younger days, Sebastian would dream of becoming a professional gamer and so he would play PC games a lot just to be better than his friends and family.
The first video game Chipshajen played was Bloodline Champions with no intention of going pro. He liked gaming so much that he played a lot of BLC competing in DreamHack Summer and Winter events in 2011. Sebastian also tried playing Dota playing at high level that led him to compete in JoinDota League Season 2.
