Shroud explains his recent comments on CS:GO: "Do you think CS is dying? No no no, I don’t think CS is dying, I think NA CS at a competitive level has died a little bit and that’s just fact.

"I don’t think CS is dying by no means, I think CS is very popular still, hundred percent it is. But that’s cool, throw some words in my mouth why don’t ya. Or, maybe you didn’t throw words in my mouth, maybe I misinterpreted what I said because it is very clear the NA CS is hurting. Might not be dead, but NA CS is definitely hurting, which makes me sad, we were doing so well."

The NA CS:GO scene has had some setbacks as of late, with 100 Thieves leaving, and Cloud9's Colossus squad being an international one, based out of Europe.
