Introducing Protatomonster League of Legends

protatomonster

On Plays.tv, you can find videos of the most calculated ganks, the most hilarious fails, and the nearly impossible 1v5 Pentakills. The Protatomonster duo, Brandon “Brandon Lee” Wilks and Parviz “PROTATOMONSTER” Soleymani, are known for turning these extraordinary plays into epic Top 5 videos.

We are happy to announce that the duo will be bringing their League of Legends Top 5 plays here to Plays.tv!  Summoners, you can now submit your incredible League of Legends plays to them by using #Protatomonster.


 

The Protatomonster League of Legends channel is the latest addition to the Protatomonster line-up here on Plays.tv. They also run an Overwatch channel which features Top 5 plays and Top fails.

We had a chance to ask the Protatomonster duo a few questions:

What got you started in creating these awesome Top 5 videos?
We’ve always had a passion for filming and editing videos but we never thought it’d lead us down the path we’re on now. Right around the time we were experimenting with some editing programs we became obsessed with League of Legends.

One day we were toying around with the idea of making a YouTube channel and our favorite games at the time were Gears of War, League of Legends, and Halo… but we were leaning towards League of Legends because it was definitely our favorite of the three. Back then when you searched “Pentakill” on YouTube there would be very little results that would pop up and we thought it was so exciting to watch the few Pentakills available at the time.

The hype around watching other people’s’ plays moved us in the direction of creating our Top 5 plays series for League, focusing on community submissions to highlight the best of the best from your everyday player!

What was your most memorable play in LoL or Overwatch?
Our most memorable play (even though the game has come a long way) has to be the #1 play from our League of Legends Top 5 Plays Week 9. It was sent in by Imaqtpie, who at the time we didn’t know at all, and it featured Scarra going off on Katarina. Looking back at it now, that play was stacked with big name players that made it/are currently in the pro scene, but at the time we were just excited to get a submission from a full Diamond game.

What was your most memorable FAIL in LoL or Overwatch?
We’ve seen so many fails in League come up over the years but none of them made me laugh harder than watching the #1 fail from our Overwatch Top 5 Fails Episode 1. Seeing Winston, this gigantic “scientist” solo cap the base by pushing people away with his ult had me cracking up


 

For people who want to submit videos to you, what advice do you have for them that would help them increase their chances to be featured?
Take your time with submitting and help us by making it detailed but concise! I think a lot of people get excited when they make a big play and they rush to submit it but they don’t realize they mistyped certain key information (like when the play starts) or their description is lacking!

If the description of your play is “Pentakill” and the next guy’s is “We were behind in gold and 2 of our teammates get caught out but through Vayne mechanics and positioning around the fight, we turn things around 3v5 near baron” then you make it much more exciting for us when we load the play.

Granted that’s a small thing because we watch every play, but if your description is good and maybe you mistyped something else in a different category, then we’ll be much more willing to skim through your play to find the action.

For Overwatch – Blizzard currently has no official replay system in place so your submission needs to be as high quality as possible! We won’t feature plays that look like they were recorded on a potato… and that’s saying a lot because well, we love potatoes ;D.

Now that you’ve launched your League of Legends channel on Plays.tv, what’s next for the Protatomonster crew?
To keep innovating our videos and making them higher quality! We have some secret videos coming up within the next month or so that’ll be “game changing” so to speak, so you’ll have to stay tuned to see more!

Any closing thoughts or shout-outs?
