Erik "Omgimabird" Sjösten is an American SMITE player. He is currently retired.

Biography

Omgimabird was born and raised in California, he lived in San Jose until the age of 9 when his family returned to Stockholm, Sweden, in order to take care of his grandparents, where he has lived ever since.

Already starting at the age of 3, gaming became a part of his life when he was gifted a Nintendo 64. Together with father and sister he explored the world of gaming through games such as Mario Kart and Zelda. Very early he started to play games in a very analytical manner, always trying to find the most efficient gameplay.

In 2013 Omgimabird started playing SMITE, whilst not playing SMITE competitive for a long time, he was dipping his toes in esports as he attempted to enter the Shootmania scene. Shootmania however didn't last long, and he made his return to SMITE and try to play competitively. In the Summer of 2014 he joined Chosen Insanity together with Deathiance, which disbanded after a poor performance in the challenger cup. He approached Ataraxia, as they had an earlier history of theory-crafting together, asking if Agilitas was in need of an analyst - leading him to join the team.

During the rise of Agilitas, later Aquila and Titan, Omgimabird progressed into being the coach for the team, and officially became the only coach of Titan when CaptCoach left in August 2015 [1].

In 2016 when Titan announced the team would disband and seize all operations, he retired from SMITE and moved on to playing Paladins competitively.
