shroud to co-stream final IEM Cologne playoff matches

The former Cloud9 star will broadcast the last three matches of the IEM Cologne playoffs on his own channel.

ESL has announced that Mike "⁠shroud⁠" Grzesiek has been granted co-streaming privileges for the semi-finals and grand final of IEM Cologne, the possibility of which the former professional player first teased on Thursday.

The 27-year-old played one of his final events under Cloud9 at ESL One Cologne 2017, where the North American team reached the grand final before being swept by SK 3-0.

shroud has been a consistent force in driving viewership for professional VALORANT tournaments, often times boasting over 100,000 concurrent viewers on his own channel. The strategy has paid dividends for the Riot Games FPS, which has had multiple co-streamers broadcasting their events, racking up hundreds of thousands of extra viewers outside of their own tournament broadcast.

shroud previously played in the grand finals of ESL One Cologne in 2017

Notably, Mythic member Erik "⁠fl0m⁠" Flom has been a proponent for ESL and other tournament organisers to allow co-streaming so that he, and other streamers with large followings, can watch CS:GO matches with their community, with BLAST being one of the first to implement the initiative in 2020, and Flashpoint following up with their RMR event in May.

The news from ESL comes after further interest and demand grew for the tournament organiser to distribute co-streaming rights to individual personalities, with discussions regarding the benefits of giving external stakeholders the ability to view the tournament broadcasts on their own channels becoming more prevalent on social media.

The schedule for the final matches of IEM Cologne looks as follows:

Saturday, July 17

16:00 - Europe G2 vs. Denmark Astralis
19:15 - Russia Natus Vincere vs. Europe FaZe

Sunday, July 18

16:00 - Grand Final (BO5)

i think riot must be paying right. i mean they have so many co streamers. shroud co streaming i can understand but why would all riot game streamers be motivated to co stream. This seems something that Riot would do
2021-07-17 09:50
99% of the time, streamers pay money to get streaming rights. That's one of the ways how ESL earns money

Could also be that he wants to just stream the event as it is the first LAN in a very long time. And since it was also one of his last LANs to play at as a pro. There may be some sentimental value for the guy. But maybe im just being too charitable i guess.

I'm a pretty big Shroud fan because he got me into CS, but I believe those were jokes no? And the way the community treated him as he left CS, I'm not really surprised he was upset with it

Weird how the community treated him like shit when he attacked the community's favorite thing pretty much always when he could. His entire fps mantra is to compare shit to CS and then say how the new game is sooo much better.

shroud dicklicker lmfao
2021-07-17 11:43
lmfao you're brain dead like everyone else in the csgo community blinded by his fanboy mentality, shroud loves csgo but hes right when he says CSGO is a dead game, if your small brain cant understand the different meanings of that to be able to understand what hes talking, youre clearly stupid, if VALVE dont give a fuck about CSGO it is automatically a dead game in content, is an old game that is not updating, put aside the huge playerbase csgo has, those numbers are meaningless.

He achieved plenty individually and with C9/CoL, much more than most ever will. And this harms no CS fan at all, if you don't like Shroud then don't watch his stream, but this will bring in a lot of viewership and give a former NA-great a return to CS, albeit a small one

since when he was good individually ? guy was the most overrated player coming from NA, kept getting carried by Stewie and Autimatic but yet ofc his delusional fans still defend him because he "has a GOD aim!!!!!" that wasnt even that good and he only kept showing it in mm/faceit games lul guy has the ego of someone that was top 1 in cs.

2014/2015, and parts of 2016 he was pretty damn good. When stewie/Auti came into the team he transitioned into a support player, and thats when you saw a noticeable drop off. The times when he had a top IGL (seang@res) he had times where it looked like he could go toe-to-toe with Europes best, I think he could have been NA's best new prospect but sadly he never fully realized his potential and wasn't 100% committed.

Yes, a paid Riot shill badmouthing CS to promote valulrant doesn't deserve it. If I wanted to know about flaws in CS, there are many other passionate CS content creators I'd listen to who live and breathe the game. Shroud can keep playing valulrant with dumb egirls and boosting them to diamond ranks.

If you watched him playing PUBG or apex or valorant or tarkov you'll see that the one thing in common with those games is that shroud thought those games are all better than CS

2021-07-17 20:10
Even before Valorant came out, when he retired he just constantly shit on the game. Calling it dead, dying, game is shit, etc. Guess some of the CS community and his fans felt betrayed because CS originally made him Famous. “Dead game, stale piece of shit game.” Were his exact words. I personally isn’t the biggest shroud fan anymore but I used to watch him back on c9 when he was pulling in 10k viewers for rank s. I think him co streaming will be good for the game and hopefully Tarik, fl0m, and others will be able to too.

I’ve been following shroud since 2015 but haven’t since like his PUBG days. ThAts when his stream was in his prime. You would be surprised how braindead shroud viewers can be. They will believe anything he says. His fanbase now is a lot of Valorant players who never played cs or watched it. He says things like cs is dead or dying and they just become like puppets and repeat it.

I think its all about his fan base, then about how much riot payed him. Like, if he has 100k viewers at the time, maybe 10% are from old csgo times, 30% maybe from pubg, rest are from valorant. NA people are crazy in games like fortnite and valorant.

ofc they did. Valorant's popularity isn't organic like CSGO's. 50% of it involves shitting on CSGO and calling it a dead game.
2021-07-17 07:07
This will probably just be bad. Na kids won't watch him anyway and this'll be a one and done deal. He's going to refer to this as a failure in the future while costreaming some tier 2 game in valorant.
2021-07-17 10:31
Shroud doesn’t do anything for free, surprised you can’t see that. He only does shit for money constantly. Look at his track record. Dropped from a team that had a major qualification spot just to host a sponsored stream. He’s super cringe.

you guys need to realize shroud is probably one of the biggest or THE biggest gaming streamer on twitch, so bringing him in to stream despite whatever he says abt csgo, is going to bring in a lot of money for ESL, and bring in more viewers to the CSGO pro scene, which makes more money for ESL as well. i agree fl0m deserves co-streaming privileges as well, but idk esl is kinda wack

Maybe we have different views of what charisma is, but I've tryed watching his streams numerous times and could never do it for more than 10 minutes cause I got bored, none of the things he said were funny or interesting at all... I'm not saying he is not a good person, I recognize all the good things he has done to the community. All I'm saying is I don't understand why people like him so much.

Gaules streams tournaments all the time, how is that news? Tournament orgs give foreign language streamers rights all the time because they don't produce their own broadcast in that language, so it doesn't compete with their main product. English language co-streams are a rarity therefore newsworthy.

2021-07-17 09:25
Why are people shitting on this? Shroud never shit talked cs, he shit talked valve for not giving a shit about the game. CS really needs this, nothing new other than Ancient has been added to the pro scene and the game is in its dullest state for a long time, no wonder he prefers Valorant, new shit happens in Valorant all the time but not cs, same game for years. Who cares if he got paid to do it, he has a solid viewership and whether he is most suited ot not or whether fl0m should have been given rights or not is not something I'd be complaining about ESL obviously knows they need other ways to get viewers because nothing is the slightest.interesting about cs to outsiders. This shouldnt be front page hltv news its not news :/ Some people need to relax abit and stop being overly sensitive about this
