Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has finally hit 100,000 subscribers on his Twitch channel during his March 9 stream, and his reaction shows how much it means to him.
The former CS:GO star started off his evening with some Apex Legends, a game in which he often receives a lot of viewers because of his insane mechanical skill and ability to pull off highlight moments - plus it's the newest trend.
Towards the end of the stream, he counted down to the big milestone alongside friends, Just9n and iPolen. After finally reaching his goal of 100,000, he celebrated with his chat by getting everyone to 'put their hands up' with his 'shroudHands' emoji.
Thanks to his consistency, skill and understated humor, shroud now stands at the top as the most subscribed channel on Twitch (according to numbers reported by streamers themselves) and has over twice as many subscribers as anyone else on the platform who make their numbers public, including the likes of TimTheTatman and Tfue.
Shroud expressed how overwhelmingly supportive the community was and how he was shocked by the number of supportive tweets he was receiving. However, he felt as if he 'didn't do anything but just play games' and when asked what his next goal was too caught up in the moment to think.
After finishing his stream of Apex Legends and thanking all of his supporters, he decided to host the fellow Twitch streamer and jenniez_tv, who he met at an event during his time as a professional CS:GO player.
After finding out she was recently diagnosed with cancer, shroud also donated a sum of $2,500 to help her reach her donation goal alongside the following donations from his fans which would all go to her cancer treatment bills.
As Shroud's success continues to climb, fans are wondering if the former Cloud9 star will eventually catch Ninja as the most followed streamer on the platform - but he is still more than five million followers behind.
It should be noted that Twitch does not publicly disclose official subscriber counts, so everything here is based on streamers' own reporting of their sub count.
