Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, one of the eminent personalities of the gaming community, recently opened up on The Eavesdrop Podcast. The former pro spoke about his Call of Duty journey, achievements, and more.
Nadeshot also spoke extensively on the streaming industry and the competitive esports scenario. While talking about the same, he even mentioned two fellow gamers in Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, who used to be his teammate at Optic, and Dr Disrespect.

Apart from Nade himself, we have seen a few other examples of such a transition. One prominent example of this is Shroud. He bid farewell to the competitive scene to embrace his true calling as a full-time streamer and has never looked back since.
