Michael “shroud” Grzesiek, born in 1994, is an ex-professional CS: GO player. At 20 years of age, he received a chance to play as a stand-in on the Cloud9 CS:GO roster. Cloud9 was impressed with his game approach and eventually gave him a permanent spot on the original five-man roster.
He was a small-time streamer who liked playing all sorts of games. After joining Cloud9, his Twitch viewership started to skyrocket. His insane gameplay and highlights made him the “King of Reddit.” Gradually, he became a popular figure in both the streaming and esports communities.
In April 2018, Shroud stepped down from competing as a professional CS: GO player and decided to pursue his dream as a streamer. After that, he streamed innumerable games and excelled at every one of them.
The same goes for VALORANT. Even though Shroud is not playing professionally anymore, he still gives the VALORANT pros hard times and makes the game look too effortless. When at his best, he impresses everyone with his excellent VALORANT gameplay.
