Dota 2:






Niklas "Wagamama" Högström is a Swedish professional Dota 2 player, and the position one player of the QPAD Red Pandas.



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 sponsors on a monthly basis, the Druidz squad stayed with their sponsor for more than one and a half year, 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 in December, as Infused picked them up on December 21st, 2011, the squad consisting 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 announce a Dota 2 team led by Wagamama and SingSing called QPAD Dragons, who shortly after changed their name to QPAD Red Pandas.[7]


  • 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.
  • June 6th, 2013, it was announced that Wagamama would go to The International 2013 to co-cast with Tobi Wan.[8]
