In my second installment of this episode I spoke about WatchMojo, a great YouTube channel which takes a look into the mystical and contested world of top tens, giving you great videos to watch, to explore different categories, and who according to the channels opinion tops these lists; you can check this video out here.
TheLOLHounds; A YouTube account which currently holds 225,540 subscribers, and over 60 million views across his videos, takes a welcomed comedic view on League of Legends that has been taken so seriously over the years. Even though his is not alone in the lake of comedy revolving around games, he still stands out and brings a fresh look upon the game and takes the community back to the idea of actually enjoying the game and not being compressed by the constant attempt to follow in pro’s footsteps.
He brings the breath of fresh air through different series of videos that he uploads, my favorite of them all has to be his “Bronze Spectates” series, in which he watches countless hours of footage from the lowest elo available, to find minutes of hilarious footage for his viewers to enjoy, whilst adding quality commentary over the more than questionable decisions and plays they make. I can see how there may be viewers who may understand that these lower elo players are just attempting to improve their skills, and maybe we should not use their pain as entertainment. But we have all been in a game where everything goes wrong and all we want to do is throw our monitor out of the window, but a few minutes later, when vehement thoughts have disappeared we look back, realizing our plays and the plays of others were laughable, and I believe this is what this channel attempts to capture.
Honestly, I truly welcome this as I believe the community has lost the true understanding of the game, and the fact that it is there to be enjoyed and without that enjoyment and laughter that can be shared throughout games, what is the point? So I really think channels such as TheLoLHounds are hitting the nail on the head with videos like this and are really helping other players to realize the original reason why they play this game.
On the other hand, this channel does not only look at the funny side to League of Legends but also the serious side, and through this vessel, he tries to help players become better and see what you can do to improve your own plays and improve the game itself. He achieves this through videos where he looks at the highest mastery players on specific champions. Which can be extremely helpful if you wish, to improve on a specific champion. He also takes a look at the best players in certain regions and how they play and their builds, which can be strictly followed by players to improve their own skills.
So if you are looking to expand your YouTube subscription count, and you enjoy League of Legends, whether you are a beginner or a senior, you should take a look at this channel, as it will almost definitely either help you improve your skills, or just show you the enjoyment of the game again, and help you actually enjoy the game and have good old fashioned fun!!
