Arath is a smasher from Jalisco, Mexico, known as one of the main commentators of the Mexican & Latino-American Smash scene, The Co-Editor for the YouTube channel "Plasma Smash" and one of the editors for VGbootcamp highlights.

Biography[edit]

Arath entered the main scene on 2014 by an e-sports company called ESLA, and started making his way as a commentator, narrating big online tournaments in Latin America alongside other famous figures in the Latin American Smash scene. He eventually got an opportunity being requested to be the main commentator in Smash Factor 4, in both Melee and Smash 4, using Mew2King's Twitch channel to broadcast the event.

In 2014, he started creating his own crew after signing a contract with a League of Legends team called Satori Red, with Regi, Andy, Harris, Lance in his team, but after inside problems with the main manager, the team disbanded. Some time later, Rampage Zone, another League of Legends e-sports team decided to contact Arath and make a contract with the same team, but this time adding MkLeo to the team. This made possible for Regi & Arath to attend EVO 2015 with a semi-professional sponsorship.

Later that year, after Thunderstruck 2015, Arath received an offer to Join Smash Factor as a commentator and Public Relationship Specialist, alongside his fellow smashers. This made possible for them to attend GENESIS 3, leading Mexico as the non-playing captain of the Mexico crew, conformed originally by Hyuga, Regi, Ryuk, Waymas, IC, and two substitutes Nalga and Manzano. The crew team got 3rd place after losing to Japan.

The 2GG team contacted Arath to help the team to create 2GGT: Mexico Saga, hosting the Mexico vs SoCal crewbattle commentated by Keitaro and Arath. Later that day, Arath commentated 2GGT: Mexico Saga Top 8 (Spanish) alongside Citi Smash Factor Owner.

After EVO: 2k16, Smash Factor 5 took place in Cholula, Puebla. The whole stream was hosted by the VGbootcamp team and commentated by Arath, Keitaro, D1, Mr.R, Helio and Anibal The recent and well known Serge vs Darkfall "meme" happened on day 1 pools being commentated by both Arath and D1
