Shroud confused after winning PUBG match without looking at screen

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has made quite the reputation on Twitch for his unbelievable aiming abilities and thrilling matches, but that wasn’t exactly what his viewers were treated to during a game of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. 

As many of his fans will know already, the variety streamer enjoys mixing up the games that he plays on a regular basis, whether it be Apex Legends, World of Warcraft, or something completely different. 

However, PUBG has been a mainstay on his channel for quite some time, and having decided to jump on the game for a few matches during his October 9 broadcast, nobody could quite believe what they were seeing – even he was shocked. 

PUBGShroud was just running around before something crazy happened.

The former CS:GO professional was running forwards with just two more enemies to eliminate in the match, before he decided to take a look down at his phone for a moment. 

While taking your eyes off the screen can always leave you in a vulnerable position from nearby opponents, this was quite the opposite. 

“Wait, what? I looked at my phone for one second. What just happened?” he said, clearly bemused after seeing the ‘match finished’ animation appear, declaring him the winner. He didn’t have to fire a single bullet to be victorious in the final three and nobody could believe it. 

Upon closer inspection, the kill feed in PUBG revealed the true fate of the two other players who seemed to just disappear at the end.

One was killed with an M14, but must have just dropped a frag before being eliminated and the grenade took out the other player – leaving shroud the last man standing.

Shroud might well have given his fans some of the most breathtaking gameplay in the past, although this is right up there with not only the most confusing, but luckiest finishes as well. Nevertheless, a win is a win. 

After all, he’s had some up and down experiences since returning to the game, with a technical glitch completely ruining one of his matches on October 8. At least this victory was an improvement on that!


Thomas Petrou reveals Hype House could be moving again

Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has hinted that the content collective could be moving to a new location, once again, after multiple instances of their address leaking online.

The Hype House is one of TikTok’s most popular groups, comprised of several high-profile content creators who live under a single roof to make the most out of their videos and social media posts.

However, being internet-famous is no cakewalk, as overly enthusiastic fans have leaked their address multiple times online, resulting in a crowd of viewers clogging their driveway and generally disturbing the peace of their neighborhood.

Thus, the Hype House — alongside rival group the Sway House — have had to pack up and move quite a few times, but it doesn’t look like their moving days are over just yet.

In an October 27 vlog, Thomas Petrou revealed that he and his Hype House homies are looking for a new home, although they haven’t exactly nailed down a solid location at the moment.

“We’re looking into moving,” Thomas said in the vlog. “Not necessarily right this second, but we’re looking at properties today.”

Although the group found one home that several of them liked (the roof of which Thomas unfortunately showed off during the video), it doesn’t seem like things are set in stone, giving the group some wiggle room if they find a more suitable abode in the interim.

It makes sense that the House would want to move; in a series of Instagram posts in July, Petrou revealed that over 100 visitors would visit their home per day, making for a fairly chaotic living situation for just about everyone involved.

As previously mentioned, the Hype House aren’t the only ones facing such troubles. Even the Sway House and YouTuber David Dobrik have dealt with major invasions of privacy as of late, with strangers showing up to his doorstep and leaving their animals at his front gate.

While it’s definitely cool to meet your favorite internet stars, it’s important to remember that they are people, too, who are deserving of their own personal privacy — no matter how many followers they have on social media.
