Twitch star Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was previously involved in an accident that left his left arm and shoulder in a bad shape. Now the former CS:GO pro has provided an update on his long-standing injury.

On March 11, shroud was involved in an incident where he flew off of his scooter and crashed into the asphalt. The popular streamer sustained several injuries to his left side, which included a series of broken bones in his left arm.

Subsequently, Grzesiek underwent surgery on March 13 to realign the broken bones, and ever since, the Canadian has had to fulfill a series of rehab procedures to manage the injury.

Shroud (Twitter)Shroud wasn’t best pleased with being left in a cast post-surgery.

Shroud’s injury update

Revealing details surrounding his progress since the incident, Grzesiek was asked on his current mobility in his left arm: “It’s not very good, but I’m getting this super intense brace-splint-thing.”

Shroud continued by detailing the rehab strategy that is in place, where he revealed that he’ll be wearing a brace alongside conduct a series of physical therapy sessions to restore the range of motion back to a similar standard that his dominant arm currently has.

Will shroud need more surgery?

After laying all his cards on the table, the ex-Counter-Strike pro unveiled that he might indeed need more surgery: “I might need another surgery, maybe, but it’s still going to take some time.”

However, the surgery will only be required if the mobility cannot be regained and then independently retained:

“Well basically, if I actually truly can’t get my mobility back through physical therapy and all different exercises, then he has one more thing that he does as his last treatment and it will 100% give me my range of motion back.”

Luckily, the arm in question is not what is predominantly responsible for his human aimbot skillset, with the streamer purposely landing on his left side to save any form of ailment coming to his money-maker. 

Should shroud require more surgery, he could come back with a Terminator–esque left arm, given that the surgery might involve planting titanium rods to aid with mobility and stability.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
