The saying goes, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." This seems to be the case for popular streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek when he was asked by a fan if he could see himself going pro in Overwatch. In summary, his reply was a resounding no.

Apparently, Shroud gets asked that question a lot, the game in question just changes to what he's playing at that point in time. Being extremely talented at first-person shooters, one can't blame his fans for asking every time. 

Shroud had a successful CS:GO career playing for a number of ESEA teams before eventually joining Cloud9 from 2014-2017. He later quit professional CS:GO on April 18, 2018 and has since enjoyed another successful career, this time streaming on Twitch

He has played several first-person shooters since moving to Twitch full-time, becoming a great player in each one within a short period of time. His latest conquest is Overwatch, and though his entry is quite late, he's already showing a lot of promise in the game. After his first few placement matches, Shroud achieved a platinum rank which is rather impressive for a first-time player. 

With millions of Twitch followers and occasional invites to Twitch Rivals events, the stress and hectic schedule of professional esports players is a thing he probably never wants to revisit.
