Shroud: The most overrated and underrated player
Xizt | 
United States Anime4life 
I swear Shroud is by far one of the most underrated and overrated players of all time. Lots of Shroud fans, or people who only watch highlight videos, will say that he was easily the best in NA and if he came back he would destroy etc. Its kinda dumb, but because of this I think many CS fans just look at Shroud as this overrated horrible who was a complete bot. He was easily one of the best aimers in NA at his prime, sadly never really lived up to the hype in international competition. Throughout his career he was in a worst team then the top European teams, and was considered a far worst player than the stars of most international teams, think of Mousesports, they had a experienced IGL in Gob B. C9 had seang@res, who was one of the worst fraggers tier 1 NA has ever seen. Mouz had nex to entry, and I'd say he did a rather fine job at it. C9 had freakazoid, who previously in his career had done pretty much nothing of note. They had NiKo, one of the best aimers of all time, and what did C9 have? Shroud. I mean this was in almost every way a 'worst' team than a team like mouz. The only real advantage I could see C9 having is Skadoodle, and even there Mouz had like 3 capable AWPers. He 100% was a great aimer, but most people seem to judge him based off the latter days of his career. And even there it is very impressive. He wasn't a fragger anymore, and played more of a support role. That in itself is impressive, few players can successfully change from being a star to a support. He did a decent job as a support and always had this explosive element. At this stage Stewie and Auti were the fraggers, and all Shroud had to do is support them. And he did it very well~

i'm a giant c9 & shroud fanboy so it's hard to agree but at the same time i accept the fact that 2014/15 c9 didn't achieve much & shroud is overrated because people watch clips instead of actually watching his stream back in 2014/15

Thats why I say he is overrated and underrated. I mean some people really do think he is the best player NA has and will ever have, and yet now many people think he was nothing but a useless bot.

Yeah that's pretty accurate. He was definitely a top NA player but he was NOT the number 1 ever. Maybe he had the potential to be but he never reached it. I mean for example Ska, Elige, Twistzz are all better. Just to name a few

So you think Shroud in C9 when they had Auti and Stewie was a fragger? N0thing the 'role-player' and helped with IGLing, Stewie helped with IGL and fragged, Automatic fragged, Ska AWPed, and Shroud supported

+1 shroud fans handpick "moments" to call him the best player ever. he's not even close. he was good when csgo didn't have much of a scene. and like you said, he was only good in NA. if he comes back now, he will get OBLITERATED. the csgo scene now is more competitive than it has ever been. he's nothing compared to current hard aimers like ropz, elige, zywoo, dupreeh, broky, brollan, etc.

I'm sorry dont beat me, but really he was one of the worst fraggers in tier 1 NA and yet also arguably one of the most important, as well as one of the players who truly brought NA to tier 1 European CS

When he was a pro it was true, and honestly it stays true even now that he is a full time streamer. Lots of people, especially on HLTV, think his streams completely suck and nobody should want to watch them.

+1 mechanically he was insane, but nowhere near as good when it comes to performing at the biggest stage.

imo more interesting is the fact how freakazoid had made it to tier1? he was absolutely dogtrash tier player with 3000 hours on record in 2016, i cant understand
2020-12-11 14:47
1 reply
Simple: He had balls. Before freakazoid joined Cloud9 they never had a true entry player. N0thing was still figuring out his role and often wouldn't listen to Sean. Like "push cat" and Jordan would put usually conflict with him. When freakazoid joined he just did it. That was a important part of what C9 needed. N0thing could lurk (which was great because he had a wonderful clutch factor and was a really smart player) and Sean could support and IGL, Ska could obviously just take control of the entire fucking map with his AWP skills, and when they finally pushed the site Freakazoid would go in and in a way be used as bait for Shroud, who had insane mechanical skill. So sometimes Freak would walk in and kill them, but usually he'd just die, but often he would distract them long enough for Ska and Shroud to come in and kill everyone, giving them the site.
