It is compatible with all major DAWs, on Mac 10.10 onwards and PC windows 8.1 onwards .

Chair: HERMAN MILLER X LOGITECH EMBODY

The Embody looks starkly different from other gaming chairs that are more likely to resemble the seats in a Fast and Furious car. It’s minimalist in its use of materials and it has a low-profile design. Yet, Herman Miller says it can make a big difference in your physiology while you game. Its striking design was shaped by the input of physicians and PhDs, and the company claims it can help reduce your heart rate while you sit. There are over 150 small supports around the chair, and these apparently let blood flow more easily to regions that usually get pressed on in most chairs, like your butt, lower back, and your legs. In my experience, a side benefit of this design is that I don’t feel fatigued when I get up to emerge from the chair.

Webcam: SONY ALPHA A6000

79 point focal plane phase detection AF sensor. The compact, lightweight camera delivers superb image quality via newly developed 24.3 effective megapixel (approx.) Exmor APS HD CMOS sensor and BIONZ X image processing engine as well as highly intuitive operation thanks to an OLED Tru Finder and two operation dials.

Shroud Career

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: Grzesiek started his Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) career with several ESEA teams, particularly Exertus eSports and Manajuma. He was soon signed by compLexity Gaming as a stand-in, and later by Cloud9 in August 2014 when they acquired the roster of compLexity.

He helped lead Cloud9 to a first place finish at ESL Pro League Season 4 in 2016 and a second place in ESL One Cologne 2017. On August 16, 2017, it was announced that he and long-time teammate Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert would be stepping down from Cloud9’s active roster.On April 18, 2018, Grzesiek left Cloud9 and retired from professional CS:GO.

Streaming and content creation: Since transitioning from a professional CS:GO player to a full-time streamer on the streaming platform Twitch, Grzesiek has maintained a diverse set of games. As of May 2020, he has streamed for over 7,500 hours on the platform, and has acquired over 376 million total views.

On March 10, 2019, he reached 100,000 Twitch subscribers—and gained another 14,000 the next day—making his subscriber count more than double the runner up streamer at the time: Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar.

He continued to stream full-time on Twitch until October 2019. On October 24, 2019, Grzesiek officially announced his move from Twitch to Mixer and would be broadcasting exclusively on Microsoft’s streaming platform, following the steps of fellow streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, who announced a similar deal earlier that year. This decision surprised his fans, as he previously stated, “Hey man, Ninja’s gone… It’s all me, baby. Gotta take advantage.”He claimed, “I just thought it was the best move for my career.

On June 22, 2020, Microsoft announced that it would be shutting down Mixer and instead partner with Facebook Gaming. It was alleged that Grzesiek received an offer from Facebook that would have financially exceeded that of Mixer. Grzesiek has since declined the offer, and received the remainder of the current contract payout. Grzesiek released a statement via his Twitter account saying, “[…] I love you guys and am figuring out my next steps.”

On August 11, 2020, Grzesiek announced that he would return to stream exclusively on Twitch.[19] His first stream back the following day peaked at over 516,000 concurrent viewers.
