xQc criticizes shroud

Felix “xQc” Lengyel, the Twitch king was evidently not impressed with  Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek’s debut performance. xQc had tuned in to watch Shroud’s pro debut for the Sentinels in North America Last Chance Qualifier on Aug. 4, in which they suffered a defeat.

After Sentinel’s defeat, the juicer warlord made heavy claims on the stream’s chat. He said, “I’m just going to say it like it is. I don’t miss OP shots,” he said. “Haven’t missed ever. I would clap these noobs!”

Despite the defeat and xQc’s jibe, Shroud was quite brilliant throughout the game. He has managed to secure a map for the Sentinels with highlight reel moments as predicted by his teammate Tyson “TenZ” Ngo.

xQc is famed for his pro gameplay in Overwatch (He secured the MVP title in the 2017 Overwatch World Cup) and knows a thing or two about what it takes to thrive in competitive shooter games.

Fans might diss xQc’s claims, as Valorant doesn’t seem like his forte at all. Compared to Shroud, who has streamed this game for over 1000 hours, xQc’s streaming hours lag behind at a total of about 300 hours. Valorant is the second most streamed game on Shroud’s channel, which is noteworthy as he had been a pro CS:GO player for five years.

But one shouldn’t underestimate xQc based on his streaming hours alone. With enough time and dedication, it might not take him long to back his claims. For now, that might still be a long way.

For now, we can all agree that xQc and Shroud are unrivaled in their respective domains. While xQc retains his throne as the most watched twitch streamer in July, a total of 19.6 million hours, Shroud is undoubtedly one of the best players out there in the history of competitive shooter games.
