Shroud has come a long way from being just an esports professional

Micheal’s journey hasn’t been an easy one, as he indeed had to go through many trials and tribulations. In his initial days, he dabbled with the professional circuit of Counter-Strike, where he earned the title of being one of the greatest minds. He showcased astonishing aim and skills that baffled fans and players worldwide.

Although he never really achieved his ultimate goal with the title, he still managed to live his dream. However, just living the dream was not good enough for him at all. In April 2018, Shroud announced his retirement from competitive play, which caught the world off guard. He decided to continue on the path of streaming and content creation over competitive play.

It is not possible to find a gamer who has not heard of Shroud in this day and age. His deal with Mixer was probably the highest point in the streamer’s career.
