Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top YouTubers and streamers in two popular Dragon Ball mobile games (Dokkan Battle and Dragon Ball Legends) and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the month ending 2/1.
A newcomer enters the ranks! Join us in welcoming Raiyuden to our top ten. This Dragon Ball Legends content creator recently held an AMA on the DBL Reddit. Read the thread here. In February, Raiyuden reached the 30,000 YouTube subscriber milestone (up from 25k in late December). His goal is 75k before the end of 2020. We'll be cheering him on! In a recent upload, Raiyuden showcases an old and "forgotten" Vegeta unit. Watch him in action below.
Tiger Uppercut Media, a Dokkan Battle YouTuber and streamer, has been playing both Global and Japanese versions of the game. Global Dokkan Battle's 5-year anniversary celebration is still months away, so watch the video below for Tiger's take on the newly released INT Future Gohan banner on Global. The verdict: most players should save their stones.
Dokkan Battle's 5th anniversary celebrations are in full swing, and D-Free is among the content creators who summoned on the much-anticipated 5th Anniversary banners. In his most popular recent upload, watch as D-Free experiences some insane luck during his first 5th Anniversary banner multi-summon.
RikuTheBest is one of eight ranked creators who amassed over one million YouTube video views during the current period. A frequent top 10 finisher, Riku's average rank is 7.6. In the video below, a departure from Riku's standard gameplay and summoning videos, he shares his opinion on the current state of Dragon Ball Legends and what needs improvement.
KaggyFilms, a professional voice actor, recently announced that he'll be voicing a character in the mobile game Pokémon Masters! He also recently announced a shift in his content from gaming to music-related projects. For Dragon Ball related content, drop by Kaggy's Twitch channel for DBL and other fighting game streams, or check out the video below for his first DBL upload of February - a twenty-minute stream highlight.
DBZ World returns to our top ten after barely missing out in the previous period. He more than doubled last period's haul of new YouTube subscribers, while his video view totals remained steady. In the video below, DBZ World showcases the highest attack stats of the two much-hyped Dokkan Battle 5-year anniversary LR units. As expected, the numbers are insane!
Ndukauba celebrated his birthday in late January. He also recently finished playing Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, so expect his YouTube video output to slow down in February. On the Dragon Ball Legends front, watch Ndukauba stream the game on Twitch or check out the video below for information about the new Zenkai unit: YEL Goku Black.
Like many ranked creators, Rhymestyle has been dabbling in the new Dragon Ball Z Kakarot game, which was released mid-January. In Dokkan Battle related news, he asked his Twitter followers about their 5 year anniversary banner summon results. Over 12,000 people voted and (sadly) 3/4ths of them weren't able to pull one of the new LRs. Watch the video below to find out how Rhymestyle fared in his recent dual summoning session with Nanogenix.
Like #4 ranked Ndukauba, DaTruthDT celebrated his birthday in late January. A few days later, in the midst of Dokkan Battle's 5-year anniversary, he uploaded a mind-blowing fifteen videos over the course of twenty-four hours. Talk about dedication! In the video below, DaTruth shares news that Dokkan's 5-year anniversary will include a Part 3 celebration!
Nanogenix is back on top for the first time in nine periods! He shares the throne with DaTruthDT. Nano had the edge in new YouTube subscribers and Twitch followers, while DaTruth had the edge in new video and stream views. Unsurprisingly, Nano's most watched recent upload is a Dokkan Battle 5-year anniversary banner summoning. Judging by the video thumbnail, things went well!
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.
Please note, N/A means the creator did not broadcast a video in the tracked games on the applicable platform during the relevant period. Since any views they did achieve were for other games, we chose not to count them here. A dash (-) means the creator does not have an account on any relevant platforms in the associated category.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of the top 20 Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle and Dragon Ball Legends 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 four categories: (1) total views of their newly uploaded YouTube videos related to these games, (2) new YouTube subscribers, (3) new Twitch channel views plus new YouTube stream views related to these games, and (4) new Twitch followers. 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. 'Active' in the New Twitch Followers category is defined as having streamed at least one related game on Twitch during the current period AND generated 100 or more Twitch followers. 'Active' in the New Stream Views category is defined as having streamed at least one related game on Twitch or YouTube 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.
