The former Cloud9 CSGO professional is set to compete in the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour: Stage 3 Challengers 2 Open Qualifier.
Reports have surfaced on Twitter that Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has assembled a Valorant squad, majoritively comprising Twitch Streamers and content creators. Leonardo “Laski” Arroyo, Skyler “Relyks” Weaver, ShawnBM, and iiTzTimmy are the names among his team and will compete in the forthcoming Open Qualifier event of VCTs Stage 3 Challengers 2.
Shroud earlier had confirmed about forming a Valorant team on his stream which now has been confirmed by the players themselves.
The open qualifier event would be Shroud’s first-ever competitive outing after he stepped down from the Cloud9 CSGO division in a bid to transition to full-time streaming on Twitch.tv under the Organization itself. Shroud undoubtedly has been known in the community for his mechanical aim and his presence of mind for any PvP game out there in the scene. During his time at Cloud9, he gave North America their first ESL Pro League championship at Sao Paulo in Brazil and helped the team finish under top 3 at a plethora of events.
Looking further into this newly formed team, we have Relyks who previously played under the banner of Cloud9 Blue Valorant, took up Streaming and content creation after he decided to take a step back from competitive play. With this opportunity, we are about to witness him put on a blockbuster show at the Open qualifier. Alongside Skyler, there are Laski, iiTzTimmy, and ShawnBM in the team. Laski too is a retired CSGO professional. Having played previously for Mythic, he has played a multitude of different roles but never really found his place at the top end of the scene despite his willingness to succeed. iiTzTimmy and ShawnBM both stream Valorant while the former ventures into Apex Legends too.
Shroud’s team hasn’t been named yet but we are about to witness a banger at the upcoming VCT Stage 3 Challengers 2 Open qualifier event. The latter is scheduled to start from July 29.
