*Disclosure: Khasino, ValleyFlyin and Cynicalex are sponsored participants in a recent promotion of the Lootcakes service. However, their appearance here is based entirely on their YouTube stats for the current period.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of the top 20 Marvel Contest of Champions, Future Fight, and Strike Force YouTubers (in the English language) since last edition based on the views generated by their top Marvel Contest of Champions, Future Fight, or Strike Force upload during the relevant period. The YouTube list is sourced from YouTube search. Creators on the list are awarded 0-100 points in each of 2 categories: views of new Contest of Champions, Future Fight, and Strike Force YouTube videos, and new YouTube subscribers. The data from the 2 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 is defined as having uploaded at least 1 video in at least 1 of the tracked games during the current period AND having generated 100 or more subscribers. 'Active' in the New YouTube Views category is defined as having uploaded at least 1 video in at least 1 of the tracked games during the current period. For example, if 90% of creators generated 100 or more YouTube subscribers, then 90 points are available in the New YouTube Subscribers category.
(2) Points calculated from each of the 2 categories in step (1) are then totaled up to determine the creator's final score.
