Videogame streamer Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek, who made his name as a Counter Strike: Global Offensive pro player and plays various titles such as Apex Legends on his Twitch channel, has tried out a few matches of Overwatch – and taken to it pretty well. This weekend Shroud had a go at a few rounds of Blizzard’s multiplayer FPS – and scored a Platinum level finish.
As reported by Dotesports, the streamer, who recently indicated that he’s not currently thinking of returning to competitive gaming, tried out a few ranked placement Overwatch games, racking up an overall Skill Rating of 2,589. Based on Esportstales’ information on the game’s competitive rank distribution, this score put Shroud in the Platinum band.
Given that he’s new to the game, that’s a decent finish. However, it sounds like the streamer wasn’t too worried about the outcome – as Dotesports highlights, Shroud wasn’t initially sure what his Skill Rating number meant, and didn’t appear to mind too much anyway.
