Michael "shroud" Grzesiek (born June 2, 1994) is a semi-retired Canadian Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player from Toronto, Ontario - currently living in Orange County, California, United States. He is currently a Full-Time Twitch Streamer and backup player for Cloud9. He is also of Polish descent.

Professional Career[edit]

Mike "shroud" Grzesiek, member of the Cloud9 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team, has been playing since its launch. He rose to prominence through the popularity of his twitch stream as well as his talent in the game which he displayed in ESEA-M with Slow Motion and then with Exertus and Manajuma in ESEA-I. He is mostly known for his lurking and clutching ability, as well as his weapon accuracy. After his time in Manajuma, he was acquired by compLexity Gaming as a stand-in replacing Todd "anger" Williams. Upon compLexity being acquired by Cloud9 on August 1st 2014, he was signed as a permanent player like the rest of his teammates. He was the second longest standing member of the team alongside Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert until they were both replaced by William "RUSH" Wierzba and Tarik "tarik" Celik in August of 2017. He stepped down as he wanted to become a backup player and full time streamer for Cloud9.
