The popular streamer and former professional Counter-Strike player Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek has been on a kind of break for a couple of months after the streaming platform ‘Mixer’ announced it was shutting down, and many people were wondering whether he was coming back to action or not.
VPEsports reported a few days ago that Shourd was lately having one common theme in his posts: VALORANT; and many people began to suspect that perhaps the player would want to return to the competitive scene with the new shooter from Riot Games.
All suspicions have been confirmed when Shroud started streaming on Twitch again. For a few hours, VALORANT was the most-viewed game in the platform and the numbers registered on his channel were crazy.
And. Here. We. Go.https://t.co/0nsby7MTHi

The Canadian player came back to Twitch and managed to bring together over half a million people in his stream. The peak was 516.289 viewers and the average was set in 222.888 after almost eight hours of broadcasting.
Once live, the streamer spoke for a while with his audience before starting playing VALORANT, and that leads to one of the most important news: Shroud plans to become a pro player on this shooter.
The former Cloud 9 player became famous playing Counter-Strike but retired three years ago. Now, at the age of 26, Shroud is open to the possibility of becoming a pro again… at VALORANT.
As we can see in the clip above, Shroud says: “The real question is: am I going pro on VALORANT? Yes“.
Right after that, he started “playing” with the viewers, like he had leaked anything… maybe that is assuming too much, but for now, his former team Cloud 9 hasn’t a full VALORANT roster. There is one spot left to be filled, and who knows, maybe Shroud comes back home.
