Shroud Rage Quits CS:GO After One Round Due To Server Attacks

Having risen to fame through a professional career in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), catching Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek playing the tactical FPS is a rarity nowadays.

Often opting for something more eye-catching, like VALORANT, or a title that he can dig his teeth into like 7 Days To Die, Shroud's love-hate relationship with CS:GO has seen him take a lengthy spell away from the game.

However, it came apparent why this was the case in a recent stream, as he spent a whole twenty minutes on the title before raging from the game and heading back to VALORANT.

Shroud Rages From CS:GO after One Round

The streamer headed into a game with fellow competitor, Justin “just9n” Ortiz, after a lengthy spell queuing and un-queuing. After 15 minutes, the pair finally jumped into Dust II, only to last less than two more minutes.

With Shroud dying first by taking on an ambitious gunfight through mid, both of his teammates were quickly hit with server attacks, causing severe lag to the point where the game was unplayable.

Watching on, Shroud instantly rage-quit and closed the entire map, switching over top VALORANT and ending his CS comeback.

"I mean, we are done, that’s it,” he began. “You thought Siege was bad? Get a load of this game called Counter-Strike.”

The bomb hadn't even exploded in just9n's lobby by the time Shroud was in VALORANT, with the pair seemingly done with the state of CS:GO.

DDoS attacks have been one of CS:GO's biggest downfalls, especially for streamers of Shroud's status. Whilst streaming, content creators are often hit offline, either by internet demons at home or enemy players looking for a free win.  

With no obvious method of combating the problem, Shroud instantly switched to the likes of VALORANT and Apex Legends, which seem to fend off these types of attacks.
