Popular personality Shroud has hit out at the PUBG developers due to a lack of communication.

Canadian streamer Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek took a huge gamble when he quit life as a professional CS:GO player in order to pursue streaming, but it’s certainly paid off.

As the second most followed channel on Twitch, Shroud makes more than a comfortable living streaming from his home in California.

With a laid-back attitude and blistering set of skills, he continues to see his viewership base grow as he shuns Fortnite in favor of PUBG.

That decision to avoid Fortnite has resulted in the Canadian teaming up with the PUBG developers to release a special set of weapon skins.

Alongside Dr DisRespect, Shroud will have his logo with black and white color scheme added to the popular Battle Royale title, albeit only on PC for now.

With fans across the world looking to get the new skins, questions were continually asked about when they’d go live.

Shroud finally had enough of being asked, and placed the blame squarely on the PUBG developers by saying the whole thing had been poorly organized.

Speaking to his stream after receiving a donation, Shroud explained that he’s been asking when they’ll go live but hasn’t heard back.

Following his complaint about the communication, he said the new integrated Twitch system with PUBG could actually be a big deal.

“Do skins drop at midnight or later in the day? I’m trying, I’m on my phone, I’ve been messaging people, trying to figure it out.

I’m a be honest, this whole skin thing, it’s great don’t get me wrong I just feel like it’s little poorly organized. It could have been a little bit better.

But yeah, I’m not getting the right kind of communication for whatever reason. So I dunno, I’m trying to get an answer, I’m asking, but I feel like they may not even have an answer because Twitch is integrating a new system for the skin thing.

This could be a very very big deal not only for PUBG, but for Twitch. They’re integrating a new system for this, so it’ll be kinda cool.”


Tommyinnit reveals he used to stream snipe Shroud before he was famous

Tommyinnit might be the most popular streamer on Twitch right now, averaging over 200,000 concurrent viewers for his sporadic Minecraft streams, but it turns out he used to be a massive shroud fanboy. In fact, he was one of shroud’s infamous stream snipers.

Stream sniping is the practice of using a streamer’s broadcast to gain information about the game they are playing – either to get an unfair advantage, or simply to join their game and troll them.

During the height of PUBG’s popularity in 2017, shroud was the biggest streamer on Twitch, and had an army of loyal stream snipers who would try endlessly to get into his matches.

Shroud’s stream snipers weren’t like others though – instead of trying to kill him, they would sing him songs, give him weapons and armor, or try to save his life when under attack.

Tommyinnit admits shroud stream sniping

Although it’s against the rules of most games and of Twitch itself, Tommyinnit has admitted that when he was 14, back in 2017, he loved both PUBG and shroud, and would spend hours up late trying to get into his games.

And he was successful too – often matching up with him, and trying to save his life from actual enemies attacking him. Shroud eventually became familiar with Tommy’s name, and would say hello to him. In a video on his second channel, Tommyoutit, came clean about all of his stream sniping antics.

In one session, shroud even talked to Tommy about playing Minecraft, the game that he’s so well-known for now.

But, it turns out that Tommyinnit made this video because it wasn’t just years ago in PUBG that he was stream sniping shroud. When he recently saw shroud on a Minecraft server with proximity chat, he had to try it again for old times sake.

Unfortunately, shroud didn’t seem to be enjoying himself at all this time around, and soon after left the server – though not before killing Tommyinnit’s character, twice.

Although stream sniping is technically against the rules on Twitch, we’re sure the platform will let this one slide, as it was all in good fun. The real question is whether shroud has made the connection that one of his old stream snipers is now one of the biggest names on Twitch alongside him.
