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. 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 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.
