As a former professional CS:GO player, one of Micheal ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s finest traits is his impeccable aim with a mouse – and the Twitch streamer is relieved to find it’s still intact, even after his brutal accident and surgery.

What happened to shroud in the accident?

Shroud had just crossed the 100,000 subscribers mark on Twitch for the first time when disaster struck, as he flew over the handles of his motorized scooter at high speed.

He required multiple hospital visits and surgery after the accident punctured a hole in his left elbow, but as fate would have it, his right arm (a.k.a his aiming arm) was relatively unscathed.

Still, it took a few days before it was comfortable again for Grzesiek, and although he’s likely still not at his full capacity, his jaw-dropping accuracy is still on full display.

  • Read More: PUBG, after a lengthy break where he almost exclusively played Apex Legends, shroud reassured himself and fans that he’s “still got it.”

    Snapping on an enemy taking cover behind a tree, his first kill was impressive enough, but when he swung round and instantly locked on to the second opponent, it was clear that his skills were unaffected by the accident and resulting surgery.

    Clearly somewhat relieved, shroud fist pumped the air in celebration – a rare showing of emotion from the usually stoic Canadian.

    Although shroud may not be putting his keyboard and mouse talents to use in the professional scene any longer, those skills are still a big part of his current job as a full-time streamer.

    Currently, he is the second most followed Twitch streamer, only bettered by Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, and continues to grow rapidly, perhaps eyeing up the number one spot – although he still has a few million followers to go.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
