Top streamers Shroud and Wadu are caught playing with a hacker in PUBG while streaming!
Michael “Shroud” Grzesiek is a very well known Twitch Streamer who has over 3 million followers on his channel. His skilled maneuvers and quick reflexes has cemented his name in PUBG community.
The alleged video showed Shroud and another streamer Wadu playing together with a hacker whom is not a part of the squad. Shroud issues commands throughout the game which the hacker in PUBG complies. That includes flying a car inside the house to be used as a barricade. At one point, another player asked, “is he a cheater?” pertaining to the hacker, where Shroud responded “ No, he just found his new way to drive cars, it’s called flying”. The hacker goes by the name of Wizard as Shroud calls him. He then later on helps the streamers to the next play-zone in their “flying car”.
As the game progress, the hacker revealed he sells the cheats for a living which Shroud quickly shuts down.
Ban vs entertainment
The original stream has been taken down. In the saved video, viewers are all aware of whats happening and kept spamming the word “Banned”. However, Shroud shrugged it off and continues to play. The incident has sparked debates especially in Reddit.
The game itself has been struggling with hackers which affects (more like, irritates) regular PUBG players. PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds has an anti-cheat system called BattlEye, the same system Battle Royale used. Unfortunately, we all know they don’t really do the work 100%.
Shroud has been well known in the game for both good and bad reasons. And the current incident might be his last hurrah if PUBG will impose a ban on him. But since the ban hammer is in question, we can’t guarantee if any disciplinary actions will happen anytime soon.
Who should be in the hot seat?
the player, who just played along according to what is convenient for him?
the hacker, who is minding his own business penetrating PUBG’s security and is trying to make a living?
or the developers?…uhmm…well..
