Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek might not be a professional CS:GO player anymore but that didn’t do his opponents any favors in his most recent ESEA Open match with Old Guys Club.
The CS:GO community lost its mind when news broke about shroud returning to play in the ESEA Open division alongside the likes of Jordan n0thing’ Gilbert, Sean ‘[email protected]’ Gares, Tomi ‘lurppis’ Kovanen and Robin ‘fifflaren’ Johansson.
Although the team is only playing one or two matches a week for fun on stream, a cult following has already developed and the perfect start to the season has been streamed to more viewers than the average professional match.

The team's next match will be on Inferno against unLucky- on June 6th. Shroud, n0thing, and [email protected] all stream the matches so don't forget to tune in live and show Reddit's favorite team some love.
