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 4/17.
Lex and fellow Brawl Stars YouTuber KairosTime have an in-game club called the Boom Bandits and were recruiting new members in April. Lex recently shared some advice for budding YouTubers and revealed that eight months into his content creation career, he still had under 200 subscribers (as of writing, he has 772k). In the video below, Lex teams up with pro player SpenLC to share tips and tricks on doing well in the April Championship Challenge.
CarbonFin Gaming is the first of three newcomers to our top 10. He's a Clash of Clans content creator and esports commentator. The first CoC video on his channel dates back to May 2017 - a long term commitment to the game that seems to be paying off! In the video below, CarbonFin shows off some Town Hall 14 war attack strategies.
Beaker's back in our top 10 after a one-month absence! Compared to the previous period, he gained 10k more YouTube subscribers and nearly doubled his video view total. See below for Beaker's take on Clash of Clans' much-anticipated release of Town Hall 14.
Earlier in April, KairosTime reached the 700k subscriber milestone on YouTube and tweeted a thank-you to his subs. One of Kairos's new videos during the current period broke 500k views. See below as he compares the new Brawl Stars brawler Squeak to every other brawler in the game.
CoC Reality is the only content creator in our top 10 who specializes in comparison videos between in-game characters. He doesn't commentate his videos, instead choosing to let his gameplay and captions do the "talking." In CoC Reality's most popular recent upload (found below), he conducts a series of tests with each hero in Clash of Clans.
CryingMan has expressed interest in Clash Heroes, a new Supercell game currently in early development. This Brawl Stars content creator and pro player for IX Gaming recently challenged viewers to beat him in a 1v1, with the winners receiving a free brawl pass. Check out the video below for the challenge details and to watch him play some 1v1s.
Brawl X has been uploading Brawl Stars content on YouTube for thirteen months. This newcomer to our upper echelon had two videos reach 1+ million views during the current period. In the more recent of the two (found below), Brawl X goes on a mass token collecting spree.
Morty the Legendary is the highest-ranked newcomer to our top 10. As of writing, this Brawl Stars YouTuber is less than two million channel views away from reaching the 100 million milestone, as well as 1k subscribers away from 700k. That's quite the accomplishment for someone whose channel is less than two years old! In the video below - his most popular during the current period - Morty works his way though the Season 6 Brawl Pass rewards.
Orange Juice reached a monumental YouTube milestone earlier in April: two million subscribers! Here's his tweet commemorating the occasion. Among our top 10, Orange Juice is the creator with the most subscribers. The next closest, Beaker, has 1.22 million. See below for OJ's overview of the recent Clash Royale update.
A new king is crowned! Judo Sloth takes over for CryingMan, who spent two months on the throne. Prior to CryingMan, Orange Juice's reign lasted five months. Judo Sloth gained nearly 90k new subscribers during the current period - more than double that of any other ranked creator. Watch his 500k YouTube subscriber special below, which features guest appearances from five Clash and Brawl Stars content creators.

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 Nox Influencer. 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.
