As one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has become accustomed to many subs and donations while playing – however, two donators left him lost for words.

The former CS:GO professional has featured a wide variety of games on his Twitch channel in recent weeks as he continues to recover from surgery on his elbow.

While playing Escape From Tarkov, shroud received four enormous donations from two different people that left him stunned in silence.

DreamHackShroud has one of the largest followings on Twitch.

Shroud receives three huge donations

Early into his stream on April 19, shroud received three different donations from the username ‘Dpmskazzka’ totalling $3,050.

After the first huge amount, Twitch chat was immediately suspicious over whether the donations were legitimate and shroud also had concerns but thanked the donator anyway.

“I don’t know how to say your name but thank you so much,” he said. “I don’t know whether it’s legit, but if it is, I love you.”

Shroud receives another enormous donation

Despite racking up an insane amount of cash just 20 minutes into his stream, shroud’s viewers weren’t finished yet as another donator pledged a massive amount of money to his favourite streamer.

A user by the name ‘JNHager’ contributed $999 leaving shroud visibly shocked and lost for words.

Eventually, he shared a comical reaction stating “not even a thousand dollars? Come on man. I’m joking – thank you! That’s not even the same person!”

Although Twitch itself has its own donation system called ‘Bits’ (of which Amazon also takes a cut), straight cash donations like this are fully paid to the broadcaster, as shroud uses a third-party tool called StreamElements, streamlining the tipping process for both the viewer and the streamer.

The 24-year-old continued to stream for another nine hours after receiving the flurry of crazy donations and stated his desire to keep experimenting with different games due to becoming bored with Apex Legends – shroud even hinted that he wanted to try his hand at GTA roleplay which has exploded in popularity.

Nevertheless, one thing is for sure, he won’t need to worry about taking a day off in the near future following the recent boost to his bank balance.


KSI calls out Jake Paul after YouTuber KO’s Nate Robinson in boxing bout

It’s been no time at all, but Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji has already called out Jake Paul ahead of their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, saying that after his performance against Nate Robinson, Paul stands no chance.

It was the fight everyone had their eyes on November 28. On the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr, YouTuber Jake Paul was set to bout with NBA star Nate Robinson.

What we got instead was a bloodbath. Robinson was trounced by Paul, getting knocked down multiple times before Paul laid the final blow in the second round. Robinson barely laid a glove on Paul despite coming out all guns blazing.

While millions watched, there was one spectator on the sidelines with more on the line than most ⁠— Jake Paul’s next prospective opponent, KSI.

The YouTuber has already faced off against Paul’s older brother Logan, beating the American not once but twice. Jake fancies his chances a little bit better, but KSI wasn’t impressed by the younger brother’s skills against Robinson.

As soon as the fight ended, KSI already started the war back up with the Pauls. “I saw nothing special from Jake lol. Soon come,” he said on Twitter.

The thinly-veiled threat at Jake Paul is alluding to their prospective bout at Madison Square Garden, pending the current global situation.

Paul has been pretty vocal about making sure the fight goes ahead, saying he has a point to prove against the British YouTuber. “KSI vs Jake Paul is 100% gonna happen. If I die without that happening, I would be so upset. It has to happen, for the culture,” he said in September.

While Paul didn’t direct address KSI post-fight ⁠— instead calling out Conor McGregor for a bout ⁠— the rivalry between the two YouTubers is fierce.

One can only hope they do actually make good on their promise and get in the ring.
