After a cryptic GIF post on Twitter, Shroud is finally back with a 21-minute long video on Youtube. The video features a montage of his finest moments. In his lifetime, Shroud has played various games, but the FPS genre seems to be his favorite. There is something in him, a form of mechanical brilliance that defies all concepts of gaming.

Just a few days ago, we saw his tweet and kind of wondered what it meant for Shroud’s future. However, that question is still lingering on. Whether he will join some new platform is still unclear as well. His Youtube upload only seems like a normal thing to do. Does that mean he will try to stream on Youtube? Maybe, maybe not, for now, there is not much to go on.
We all know Shroud’s capabilities, and it is fairly certain, wherever he chooses to go he will shine.

Perhaps he is the best our generation has seen, especially with the one-tap kill ability. It is not only due to his intuition or years of training. If you see the clips, the discipline is clearly visible. There is a calculated amount of horizontal aim shift, an acute sense of positioning, and sound sensitivity. With all these, he is also blessed with an insane reflex, which very few people can counter.
During the starting half of the video, we hear Shroud saying, “if you are at the top, what drives or motivates you to keep going?” There are several experts who claim that he is the best aimer in games—someone who represents the entire FPS genre.
What does this mean for his streaming career?
Seeing a satisfying video like that, a compilation of the best peek-and-shoot and no-scopes, we are left to wonder about the future. It is fairly uncertain, and things can go any way. For now, it seems that Shroud is enjoying his break and taking things real slow.
The video features almost all the games he has played, from PUBG, Fortnite, Apex Legends, CS:GO, to Valorant and Escape From Tarkov. We can see a gradual improvement in his reaction time as the video includes clips from his time at Cloud 9.
However, if you thought the GIF was cryptic, then wait till the video ends. Just the word “tomorrow” written in bold with some more clips. Setting us up for what seems to be a big announcement, Shroud keeps up with his mysterious online presence.
