Who is SypherPK?

Born Ali Hassan under the earth sign of Taurus on 10 May 1996, in Austin, Texas, USA, known as SypherPK, he is anAmerican professional gamer, streamer, YouTuber and online personality. Recognized as one of the most popular faces in the gaming industry, he rose to fame by playing RuneScape” and more recently Fortnite, two immensely popular titles. Sypher has a multi-million following on both YouTube and Twitch, making him one of the most beloved streamers on the planet. From time to time, he also engaged in Fortnite competitions, which earned him several high placements in tournaments. In the PC players’ category, he’s nearly always ranked amongst the five best players.

Early Life and Education: Growing Up in Texas

SypherPK was born to parents of Near Eastern descent, but holds American citizenship. There is not much information available about his childhood or his family, because Sypher has always been a private person when it comes to details of his personal life. On numerous occasions, reporters and fans alike have inquired about this, but he’s politely refused to answer  questions regarding this matter, although during one streaming session, he revealed that has two younger brothers.

We do know that his infatuation with gaming began when he received a PlayStation 2 console for his eighth birthday. At first he only played Crash Bandicoot, but also experimented with Halo 3 on the XBOX 360. A classmate of his often played RuneScape, a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG), which caused young Sypher to develop a love for PC gaming, as he started saving money to buy the necessary components. Around this time, he had his first contact with content creation, when he was assigned to shoot a documentary for a school project. He created his first videos around this time, mostly involving Runescape gameplay.


Career Beginnings: Creating a Channel, More Runescape, The Elder Scrolls and More

On 22 January 2011, while still in high school, SypherPK joined YouTube; in the nascent phase of his career, he mostly uploaded Runescape-related videos, but Instead of just showing off his prowess, he created educational videos involving tips and trips for newcomers to the game. In 2013, he switched to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls Online – fans loved his informative video and enticing commentary and he quickly reached the 50,000 subscriber mark. While he didn’t have a lot of viewers on Twitch, he still gained a satisfactory following, and began receiving donations from his fans. This prompted him to expand his repertoire in 2016, by adding Overwatch and For Honor to his arsenal.

He was so good that Twitch made him a partner, which motivated him to start playing professionally, and he’d soon amassed 75,000 followers.  His brothers also streamed with him occasionally, but eventually quit to focus on education. SypherPK’s big break was yet to come.

Becoming a Star: Fortnite, Luminosity and High-profile Collaboration

In the summer of 2017, the hit battle royale, Fortnite was released, and SypherPK immediately focused on what was to become a massively popular game. He trained tirelessly, becoming one of the best in the world in the PC category – there are also console and mobile rankings. This lead popular streamer NickMercs to take an interest in this young star, and they partnered to play at the Friday Fortnite tournament, emerging as winners.

‘Nick used to lurk in my stream when I only had a few hundred viewers’, recalls Ali. ‘When Friday Fortnite was announced I just asked him if he would be my partner, and we went and won the whole thing. The rest is history.’ In 2017 and 2018, SypherPK and NickMercs were one of the most formidable duos of Fortnite playing, becoming known for their deception tactics and high kill numbers. In 2018, Sypher signed a contract with Luminosity Gaming, and began competing with them in major tournaments. He soon established himself as one of the premier Fortnite streamers in the world, with his list of frequent collaborators including HighDistortion, Myth, Nick Eh 30, Ninja, and his Fortnite partner, NickMercs.

In October 2020, he partnered with fellow Twitch streamer KittyPlays  and with online shopping service Klarna in launching  “Playing For Keeps”, the in November signed a  streaming deal with Twitch.

Early the following year, in collaboration with SypherPK,  Fortnite launched in the form of a locker bundle, then later that year, he created an apparel line known as Metal Umbrella, to create more than just ‘influencer merch’, and to “merge [Sypher’s] love for anime and fashion”, as an expansion of the SypherPK brand”. In June 2022, he joined with Honda in an event entitled “Hondaverse” in the game Fortnite, and in the September, Fortnite released   a cosmetic outfit with his likeness.
