Who is Forsen?
His real name is Sebastian Hans Eli Fors, born on December 16, 1990. He is most known for his experience competing in Starcraft II and Hearthstone. He was one of the most popular Hearthstone players in 2015 and always had at least a few thousand viewers on his live stream, even having as much as 30 thousand! In May of 2015, he won his first Hearthstone tournament in the HTC Invitational.
He also won a Play It Cool streaming marathon in October of the same year, but it was apparently quite a controversial one. At the end of the 24-hour marathon, both Forsen and another player, Janne “Savjz” Mikkonen, had achieved the same rank at the end of their final games. There was a discrepancy in the rank calculation but the two entered a playoff match anyway, and Forsen came out on top. He walked away from the marathon with a $5,000 winning. Outside of Hearthstone, Forsen participated in the Darwin Project Invitational tournament. He won 1st Place and took home $20,000.
Currently, he streams a variety of games on Twitch. Some of his recent streams include Apex Legends, Dota 2, ATLAS, Kingdom Hearts III, and Resident Evil 2. He streams under the team Cloud9’s banner.
He doesn’t have an Instagram account but his Twitter has around 113 thousand followers. He also established a “family-friendly” YouTube account in August 2016. The channel has a little over 170 thousand subscribers and 51.5 million views.
He’s been in a relationship with fellow Twitch streamer Nani for about 3 years now. They sometimes appear on each other’s streams and Nani often posts photos of them on her own Instagram account.
