Popular Twitch streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek blasts the new Season 3 ‘survivor pass’ and in-game rewards that were recently added to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

Shroud is known for his insane mechanical skill on PUBG, and it was his game of choice after stepping down from pro CS:GO. He even competed at multiple PUBG tournaments, such as the Global Invitational 2018.

But, he has played the game less and less since the release of competitors like Call of Duty’s Blackout and Apex Legends, as PUBG has fallen largely out of favor.

The former Cloud9 CS:GO star made a brief return to PUBG for his Twitch stream on March 22 and did not hold back when reviewing the latest patch notes and Survivor Pass 3: Wild Card.


The latest installment of PUBG’s Survivor Pass, ‘Wild Card’ did not go down too well with the shroud, commenting “God, your emotes fucking suck,” as he was scrolling through the list of in-game rewards.

When he moved on to view another dance emote that could be unlocked, he compared it to PUBG’s competitor, Fortnite, before stating that the team who worked on the battle pass had no idea what they were doing.

“Ok that just screams Fortnite right there. These guys have no idea what they are doing, like it’s crazy.”

Shroud has recently been playing a lot of the new battle royale game, Apex Legends and appears to have lost some interest in PUBG for the time being, despite their recent updates.


As more competitors enter the battle royale genre, and Fortnite continues to reign supreme, many are wondering which game can maintain that top spot and what developers will do to keep their games fresh.
