Michael Grzesiek, who is better known as Shroud, is a video game streamer and a former pro-Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player. He was one of the most popular streamers on the live streaming platform Twitch but recently made a bold move to join Microsoft owned new streaming platform named Mixer. As of 2019, Shroud net worth is estimated to be around $3 million.

Shroud was born on June 2, 1994, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. He later would move to the United States settling in Orange County, California. He is best known for playing games such as PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Call of Duty Black Ops 4: Blackout, Minecraft, and World of Warcraft Classic.

Career

Shroud started off with CS: GO which was the game that intrigued him the most and at the same time, excelled in as well. He was soon noticed and would play for teams such as Exertus and Manajuma. Yet, his value started increasing exponentially and he would soon be a part of CompLexity Gaming signing a major contract with Cloud 9 in 2014. He played a pivotal part in them being the winners of the ESL Pro League Season 4 in 2016.

Yet, in 2018, he wanted to change things up and left Cloud9 as well as being active on Counter-Strike. This was the time where he started to become active on Twitch which was gradually rising in popularity at the time. He gave his full-time and would establish himself as one of the gamers to watch out for in the entire platform.

He left the Amazon-owned service for Mixer, which is owned by Mixer following the steps of the most popular streamer right now named “Ninja”.

There were concerns that Twitch was not fully supported in developing their brands and Microsoft provided a better platform for this along with a good chunk of money too. Twitch was of course not happy with this decision and instantly stripped him of the hard to get verified partner badge and even his channel stopped showing up in the search section.

This was quickly noticed by his beloved fans who had mixed reactions over the way that Twitch treated one of their most important streamers in such an aggressive way. His fans soon had a look at Mixer and within a short span of time, he already has more than 400.000 followers on this new platform. Shroud will now be completely focusing on Mixer alongside his Youtube channel where he has 5.3 million subscribers as well.
