Moon Stars, a new YouTuber who only began uploading videos in late October, experienced a surge in viewership during the current period. This includes two Brawl Stars uploads that each broke one million views. While Moon Stars finished 2019 with just over 50k subscribers, he's already broken 150k! Congrats, that's an impressive pace. Watch below for a recent entry in his "Funny Moments & Glitches & Fails" series.
For a more detailed breakdown on the top content creators in this edition, take a look at the table below. Click the table to enlarge.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of the top 20 Brawl Stars, Clash of Clans, and Clash Royale YouTubers (in the English language) based on their most-viewed new upload (during the current period) related to any of these games.
Creators from the above list are then awarded 0-100 points in each of two categories: (1) total views of their newly uploaded YouTube videos related to these games, and (2) new YouTube subscribers. The data from these categories is sourced from YouTube and Social Blade (socialblade.com). Points are calculated according to the following steps:
(1) For each category, total points available are calculated by multiplying 100 by a fraction: the total number of creators active on the relevant platform (numerator) divided by the total number of creators on the list (denominator). 'Active' in the New YouTube Subscribers category refers to creators who uploaded at least one related game video AND generated 100 or more subscribers during the current period. 'Active' in the New YouTube Views category refers to creators who uploaded at least one related game video during the current period. For example, if 18 of 20 creators are considered 'Active' in the New YouTube Subscribers category, then 90 points are available in that category (i.e. 18/20 = .9 x 100 = 90).
(2) Points awarded to a creator in each category are then calculated by multiplying the results of step (1) by a fraction: the creator's individual performance in that category (numerator) divided by the total performance of all creators on the list in that category (denominator). Continuing the example from (1), a creator with 100,000 New YouTube Subscribers out of 1,000,000 from all ranked creators on the list would receive 9 points in that category (i.e. 100,000/1,000,000 = .1 x 90 = 9).
(3) Points calculated from each category are then totaled to determine the creator's final score.
