"Proto" (Real Name: Nicholas Maldonado) is an American Call of Duty player. He is currently playing for Seattle Surge.


First game Proto started playing was originally Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64 which eventually led to him starting to play on Xbox 360 and playing his first Call of Duty game; Call of Duty 4. From then until Ghosts he only played public matches, he then found out what competitive Call of Duty but never attending an event for the duration of Ghosts.

Advanced Warfare

With the new release of Advanced Warfare, Proto started to take competitive CoD a lot more seriously which led him to attend his first major event, MLG Pro League S3 Relegation Tournament with Enigma 6 as one of two pick ups for the event and respectively placing 13th-16th. His next event was UMG Washington DC 2015 and managed to make the top 16 with VexX Gaming. Not too long after the event, he left VexX Gaming and joined Lethal Gaming alongside his long term duo Holler. His next major event with Lethal was the last of Advanced Warfare which was the MLG World Finals where he played through the Open Bracket and defeating the likes of Relapsed eSports and Most Wanted eSports, which then led them to qualify and be placed in Group D where they would face Team eLevate, Team EnVy, Team Orbit and Citadel Gaming. By the end of groups, they had a result of 1-3 only managing to pull off a win against the young wildcard team from Australia, Citadel Gaming. Placing 4th in their group, this meant they would be placed Losers Bracket Round 2 where they faced Millenium and managing a win over them 3-1. They then went up against their fellow qualifiers Dream Team. It was a close series but unfortunately losing in the 5 game bring the series 2-3 to Dream Team. This lost meant that this was the end of the line for Lethal and were knocked out of the tournament and leaving empty handed.
