Shroud has possibly had his best year of streaming yet in 2019, picking up awards for his content creation and announcing a huge deal with Twitch’s rival platform, Mixer.

The former CS:GO professional is known for his incredible level of mechanical skill in almost any game he tries, particularly shooters, and in a video recapping some of his yearly highlights, he proved to fans why he’s among the best to do it.

Twitter: @shroudShroud made the surprise move to Mixer on October 24.

Although shroud has been spending a lot of time on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Escape from Tarkov in recent months, the video also highlights some of his best plays on games he was dominating earlier in the year, such as PUBG and Apex Legends.

The compilation is filled with many of the streamer’s best moments, including the ridiculous 1v3 clutch that he pulled off in the Call of Duty CODE Bowl charity event.

However, it also captured many of the Mixer star’s hilarious fails throughout the year, such as his best GTA V highlights and crashes during his time on the game.

But, for the most part, the yearly recap was filled with insane squad wipes and quick flicks, proving that shroud is truly worthy of the ‘Human Aimbot’ moniker.

Another moment, that caught a lot of attention online, captured in the video, was shroud’s reaction to the series of earthquakes that Los Angeles experienced on July 6,

While shroud has had a successful year broadcasting to his fans, the streamer revealed that his transition to Mixer has cost him some viewership, explaining that some of his fans still do not realize he has switched platforms.

Regardless of his choice of streaming platform, shroud has continued to prove his dominance in-game throughout the year and will likely look to do the same in 2020. He placed 3rd on our best streamers of the decade list, and could be working his way up to number one in the decade to come.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
