As a former professional CS:GO player and now one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, Michael “shroud” Grzesiek is considered one of the most talented video game players around.

Not all Twitch streamers rely on professional level gameplay to become popular, many are simply entertaining, funny or play a variety of games with insightful commentary and discussion with their viewers.

But if you were to look at the very top of Twitch, those with millions of followers and tens of thousands of viewers when they go live, it is usually streamers who provide the combination of entertainment with unrivalled skill.

Shroud is perhaps the finest example of this. In fact recently, fellow streamer ‘Lirik’ complimented shroud by saying he is the very best Twitch has to offer.

Stepping away from professional counter-strike in 2017, shroud shifted his focus entirely to streaming and now is most associated with playing battle royale game PUBG.

He still also plays CS:GO and other games on occasion, and still showcases his skill across genres, but is most proficient at shooters.

When asked by a viewer in a recent stream how he became so good at video games, shroud proceeds to show exactly how, as he quickly wipes out six enemies with assassin like efficiency.

And he also manages to answer the donator’s question while doing so, explaining that it just comes down to putting in the time.

“To answer that question, just playing a lot man. I’ve been gaming forever and ever and ever. I’ve been gaming for so long. It’s all I do, I live and breath this shit.”

And he really couldn’t have picked any better timing to pull of this insane six kill spree while explaining how he got to this point. You can watch shroud stream most days on his Twitch Channel.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
