Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top YouTubers in three popular Supercell mobile games (Brawl Stars, Clash of Clans, and Clash Royale) and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the month ending 4/26.
#10: General Tony
Last Month's Ranking: N/A
We're kicking things off with a blast from the past! This period marks General Tony's first top ten appearance since January. When we last checked in, he was less than 10k YouTube subscribers away from 2.5 million. We're happy to announce that he reached this milestone in February! In Tony's most popular recent upload, he experiments with a popular 3-star Clan Wars strategy from 2019 to see if it still works.
This period marks CWA (a.k.a. Ash)'s third straight top ten appearance. Among our top ten YouTubers, Ash is the one whose sole focus is Clash Royale. Check out the video below for a special interview that Ash conducted with a Clash Royale Game Designer, Seth Allison. The matter at hand: The Tornado nerf/rework.
Coach Cory returns for his second-ever top ten appearance (he first appeared two periods ago). This Brawl Stars expert is closing in on 200k YouTube subscribers. At his current pace, we expect Cory to reach this milestone in early June. Cory uploads videos almost daily. In one of his most recent uploads, he attempts to gain trophies in the Showdown mode without attacking anyone else.
Last Month's Ranking: #5 (Tie)
Baxtrix [EN] slid two spots in our rankings. His YouTube video output remained stable, but he gained about 17,000 fewer subscribers. In the video below, Baxtrix tackles Brawl Stars' Big Game mode with Sprout and attempts to stay alive as long as possible. Watch as his ultra-defensive play style leads to amusing situations!
Last Month's Ranking: New to list
GHT Productions is the sole newcomer to our top ten. This YouTuber's first Brawl Stars upload dates back to October 2019, although he didn't begin consistent uploads until March of this year. Most of his content involves pitting two brawlers against each other in a series of 1v1 tests. Watch below for a showdown between Bo and 8-Bit!
#4 (Tie): KairosTime
Last Month's Ranking: #5 (Tie)
In late April, KairosTime constructed a "most liked" Brawl Stars bracket
and allowed his followers to vote for their favorite brawlers. Click here
to find out which brawler was crowned (the final vote was extremely close!). In other news, Pam's remodel has been a source of excitement for many players. Kairos had early access to Pam's new player model, which he shows off below.
Lex is the fifth consecutive Brawl Stars YouTuber featured in our rankings! This period, he and fellow brawler KairosTime share the #4 rank (both amassed a nearly identical number of new subscribers and video views). Watch below for Lex's interview with the voice actor behind the brawler Poco. Lex also recently interviewed
Colt's voice actor.
Beaker, the sole Clash of Clans representative in our top ten, once again locks down the #3 rank. As of writing, he's about 25k YouTube subscribers away from reaching the one million milestone. We'll be keeping a close eye on his subscriber count! Beaker is in the process of maxing out a new account, which he hopes to achieve later this month. Follow his progress below!
Orange Juice is ready for Clash Royale's Season 11 update! Check out the video below for OJ's comprehensive overview of what's new and what's been tweaked in the May update. In other news, OJ recently received a special box of CR-themed goodies from Supercell. Watch him open the package here
Last Month's Ranking: #7
In his second-ever (and second consecutive) top ten appearance, CryingMan claims the throne! Among our top ten, he ranked #1 in both new subscribers and video views during the current period. This Brawl Stars pro player recently switched teams. You can read his announcement here
and check out his new team here
. CryingMan has been uploading a series of Rank 35 gameplays that feature different brawlers. A recent upload, which you can watch below, features Rank 35 8-Bit.
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. To qualify, at least 75% of their videos in related games (during the current period) must contain self-created gameplay or game-related commentary (i.e. created directly by the YouTuber as opposed to clips sourced from third parties).
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.
