Why does he always seem to quit games once people that are better than him show up? It happened in CSGO, PUBG, and now Apex too. Its almost as if hes salty that hes not the best aimer in each game anymore

But the reality is that player amount in games arent based on stream views... If it was like that then apex wud have 1 million view every single day at its peak but it didnt...

The definition a kid has of a dead game is leading here on hltv. The inital hype is gone = dead game. The kid above me replies with some numbers but he probably calls csgo dead aswell in other threads. As long as i get a new fresh game within 20 seconds a game aint dead for me. The fact that there is a lack of updates i true, yet they are working on it. If you love the core of a game people stick to it. Yet nowadays kids want new cosmetic rewards every week cuz of fortnite. Its crazy.

Depends how you define dead.. Its still popular but not as popular as some people want it to be.

i do understand him. play apex for 8 hrs every day 8 weeks you will be tierd of the game .. same with pubg , cs cod and whatevver..

Did you ever get a job? Gonna tell my boss "I'm tired so i'm quitting" lul
2019-05-14 22:02
yeah the difference is shroud is his own boss and has the flexibility to play whatever the fuck he wants. obviously if you said that to your boss you'd get fired lol

lol whatever fuck he wants? Do you even know that shroud has a contract and they paid him to stream 4-8hrs a day? Do you even know or atleast search for that before putting a comment and act like a boss here? haha
2019-05-14 22:12
i'm assuming you're talking about apex. he chose to sign that contract for more money lol and i'm pretty sure it has expired now considering he doesn't play it anymore. literally the entire reason for becoming a fulltime streamer was the fact that he has the freedom to work around his own schedule and play whatever he wants. you're retarded lol

" And you replied to that guy who is asking if he ever get a job.. And this thread is about shroud quit again. Im sure you still not getting the point here hahahah Ok mr.retard obv now he can play whatever he wants but under his contract its not. Fucking idiot hahahah

xxxhoshi is still correct in saying Shroud's full time streaming job allows him to play whatever he wants. You still haven't come up with a valid counterargument to xxxhoshi point. Britney_spears is wrong in thinking that shroud HAS to play the same game every day. You are so fucking dumb it's insane if you haven't realised that if there is this Apex contract Shroud signed up to then it's clearly expired if he's choosing to not play it anymore.

2019-05-15 14:23
Sibusovn said that Shroud can choose to quit playing apex if he's bored of it. You then replied to him saying "you sibusovn sound like you never had a job, it's like going to your boss and saying "I'm tired so i'm quitting lol" so in other words you're saying Shroud has to play apex everyday or if he doesn't then it's like he's telling his boss that he's bored and thus quitting. It is not like that because Shroud can choose whatever game to play when streaming - Shroud is his own boss.

1. He was never even close to being on the top in CS 2. PUBG was going well for a while but then died out everywhere but china 3. Apex died in one month and everyone I know stopped playing too not just shroud. There hasnt been an update in ages and you get nothing for winning. And I'm pretty sure he wouldn't be salty about anything in the world with 40-50k subs.

br games can be fun to play, that doesnt make it an esport. every single esports competition in any br game ever has been an absolute joke and will continue like that forever. its in the nature of the game that the most fun way to play is the least competitive. and unlike in cs, there is a HUGE luck component involved in basically every stage of the game.

It was more n0thing than Shroud that held back Cloud9. Had Shroud had any other good players oon his team WHEN he was in his prime he could have been a top 20 player.
2019-05-15 13:18
I think n0thing was a better player than shroud. Shroud never showed he was a top player, his teammates played better than he did at lans. He was usually either the worst, or 2nd worst player.

Nothing may have had better game sense then shrimp, but shrood was far superior mechanically and aim wise. I think Shroud has anxiety when he is outside his comfort zone and that affected his ability when playing on LAN

I don't think shroud was intelligent enough, though very highly skilled.

You clearly don't watch him, he never says he's the best player in PUBG/ Apex or whatever game it is, he knows/ said he knows he is just casual af and ofc he is such a good aimer still because of his past on cs and that's why he has many viewers, he is a very above average skill-wise player when it comes to public lobbies in PUBG or Apex, consistently, which makes it a very nice experience for the viewer
2019-05-14 13:25
He was never the Best aimer in csgo bth.... if he was half As good as ppl make him in the csgo comunity he would have won more than Astralis in 2018 omegalul.... BTW he never won anything of meaning Most overhyped player ever

+1 he was never at any point of time even a top 5 aimer and his aim is so overrwted in csgo, he has a streaky fast aiming style that doesnt suit csgo. Shox, niko, f0rest, s1mple, rez, scream, dupreeh, xantares, k0nfig, flamie, twistzz, byali all 5x better aimers and shroud and these are just on the top of my head i can list a lot more
2019-05-15 12:56
he has flashy aim which arouses the thousands of noobs watching. real gamers know flashy aim <> good aim.
2019-05-14 19:47

Even though he's overhyped, he was an insane aimer and probably the best player when it comes to mechanical stuff and moviments, shenanigans, etc. Everything he did was so fucking fluid, idk how, but it felt like he was gifted. BUT In the end, he wasn't a competitive player, he actually never gave a fuck about winning and stuff, for him, it was boring to keep to schedule up, to practice, theory, team things, etc. And he didn't like traveling, he was also a choker on LAN, he was a very different player, playing scared, shaking, like he was shitting on his pants... That's sad cuz he had so much potential, for me shroud was a waste of a player that could have for sure been one of the best
2019-05-14 20:34
He says he doenst like competition, but competition brings you motivation. He needs some excitement. And, he's a good aimer, but not the best by any chance, he just brought and adapt his aim from cs to other fps games.
2019-05-14 20:48
shroud is kind of person that can stop streaming and become one of the best players basically in any fps game... but he streams because he likes it. He streams games he likes, not games you like.
2019-05-14 20:56
in other games idk, in cs he cant. he tried hard before and got nothing, even on an easier era... nowdays he would be average, as he was before he quitted.

In my opinion, he has good aim, but compared to other professionals he is not in the top. Probably streaming has made him more popular, but in CS GO events he has not been at a good level. Similar to Scream, in tournaments is not very impressive, but when he streams, he does good things in MM.

he's definitely a really good aimer but so overrated. he's also one of the biggest onliners ever and wasn't able to perform consistently against the top teams. online rating 1.13 lan 1.00 big events 0.98 which is pathetic if u look at his mechanical skill. he even was in the best position to get many kills.
2019-05-14 23:53
He is quite smart if he switches to different games when the current one (apex, pubg) slowly is getting less and less viewers. He has good aim but was never the best aimer in cs go, he is only good in pub matches not in professional matches.
2019-05-14 23:59

He played CSGO for years, moved to PUBG when it started to fall off a cliff and picked up Apex. All the while streaming random other titles. Where is the proof of his "quitting when someone better comes along"? Sounds more like you want to try and create a narrative for your flawed outlook on the situation.
