Grzesiek is often recognized as one of the best “aimers” in the first person shooter video game genre.
After a brief dalliance with Microsoft’s now-defunct live streaming platform, Michael “Shrou-d” Grzesiek returns to Twitch with an exclusive deal. The length and financials of the deal were not disclosed.
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Shroud, who still holds more than 7 million followers on his Twitch channel where he grew to fame, playing as a professional on “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
