Ryan “Chap” Chaplo was born on August 1, 1994, in New Jersey, USA. His professional gaming and streaming career wouldn’t take off until he launched his Twitch and YouTube channel in January of 2018.
This coincided with him joining eSports team, World Best Gaming that February, which he stayed with through April. His skill and unique content style of showcasing his kills from other users perspectives didn’t go unnoticed and just 2-months later, he was picked up by Team Liquid as a part of their emerging Fortnite squad. This team, alongside Chap, made up of 72hrs, Strafesh0t and POACH had already been skirmishing together for a while and were a natural fit as a squad.
Their talent and cohesion would become obvious with Chap cinching three 1st place, four 3rd place, and an additional eight top 10 finishes in the back half of 2018. During that time Team Liquid added Vivid to the team and Chap rose to the top 100 Fortnite earners in the US.
During this time, his streaming and VOD career continued to take off, gaining a massive following in a matter of months. The unique thing is that unlike most streamers, Chap typically plays without a webcam and chooses to let his gameplay do the talking. This really speaks to his ability as a Fortnite player to still attract viewership and reflects how he keeps much of his personal life very private.
As of 2019, Chap and Team Liquid have still been going strong following their late success in 2018. Unfortunately for Chap, he hasn’t showcased the same knowledge of the game meta in recent seasons and missed qualifying for the Fortnite World Cup in July. That setback hasn’t slowed him down, and he continues to stream and grow his following and will likely be back in the top echelon of players very soon.
