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.
During their most recent match shroud and company faced off against Primal Gaming on Overpass and, predictably, won rather comfortably with a score of 16-5.
As always, the “Old Guys Club” players were clearly enjoying themselves throughout the match and shroud was in particularly fine form, picking up a handful of clutches and multi-kill rounds.
One round in particular stood out, though, as shroud managed to lock down the B bombsite with the rarely used Negev – spraying down four opponents with ease:
The results from Old Guys Club just go to show how big the skill gap is between the average player and former professionals, even if some of them have barely touched the game for months or years at a time.
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.
