After a scooter injury left shroud with an elbow injury, shroud was initially able to stream through it but it doesn’t look like that will continue to be an option.

Twitch streamer shroud recently flipped over the handlebars of his scooter and got into a major accident, resulting in a severe injury to his left elbow.

In true shroud fashion, he made sure to land on his left arm so it wouldn’t affect his aiming in shooters.

He very quickly got back to streaming but he provided another update that makes it sound like his streaming in the near future is very much in doubt.

Shroud shared a grim update

Shroud underwent surgery for his elbow on March 29 and he shared an update about it on Twitter.

“Well surgery is done my arm hurts like hell,” he wrote. “Won’t be streaming for a while that’s for sure.”

That’s not good news to hear for fans as it sounds like he’ll be out for an extended period of time and away from streaming as he recovers.

On the bright side, if he was able to stream through the pain before, there appears to be a chance that he could return to streaming sooner rather than later.

Shroud couldn’t have picked a worse time to get hurt

It’s not a good time for shroud to miss time streaming as he very recently cracking the elusive 100,000 subscriber count, something only Ninja was able to do before him.

He was on top of the streaming world at the time of his injury and depending on how much time he misses, he might not be on top for long as his subscribers will move onto other streamers to follow and watch.

Fellow streamer and friendly rival Dr Disrespect has enjoyed poking fun at shroud after the accident, even going as far as getting into an accident of his own on stream.

We’ll just wait to see what Doc has to say about this latest update.

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.
