About Shroud

He’s a man with a lot of names. Born Michael Grzesiek, he is perhaps best known by his gamer name Shroud, or by his moniker “The King of Reddit.” He’s also a member of the world-renowned competitive gaming team Cloud9, which has helped him become one of the most popular PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Counter Strike: Global Offensive players on the planet.
