Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top YouTubers in three popular Marvel mobile games (Contest of Champions, Future Fight, and Strike Force) and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the month ending 6/21.
Last Month's Ranking: #11
This period marks Tauna's first time cracking our top ten! He's been close multiple times, including last period when he placed #11. Tauna's old YouTube channel was hacked earlier this year, but he's now up and running again on a new channel
. Tauna's most popular upload during the current period is a discussion about when Marvel Strike Force players should stop starring their characters.
Last Month's Ranking: #8
RichTheMan is one of five Marvel Contest of Champions creators in our top ten. Fun fact: Rich's first MCoC YouTube video was uploaded on June 23, 2015! The video below, uploaded exactly five years later, features a discussion on how to maximize your account while playing without an alliance.
A record-breaking number of Marvel Strike Force creators made our top ten! ValleyFlyin is one of four such creators. This period marks his ninth consecutive top ten appearance (and his tenth ever appearance). Watch the video below to hear ValleyFlyin and #2 ranked MobileGamer's take on the Black Order, their MSF rosters, and more.
#6 (Tie): ContestChampion
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
ContestChampion has rejoined
his old Marvel Contest of Champions alliance, 4L0ki, after a half-year absence! The reason: Upcoming changes to alliances and alliance quests. See below for his full explanation. In other news, ContestChampion jokingly tweeted
that he would make a video like the Hit Monkey motion comic when he reaches a million YouTube subscribers. We'll be cheering him on as his channel continues to grow!
#6 (Tie): Prof Hoff
Last Month's Ranking: #3
Prof Hoff has uploaded roughly 250 Marvel Contest of Champions YouTube videos during the current period, making him by far the most prolific creator among our top ten. In Prof Hoff's most popular recent upload, he commentates over a crystal opening video submitted by a viewer who recently celebrated his birthday.
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
Lagacy, a Marvel Contest of Champions creator, recently had a dream
about the Alliance Wars game mode! It's not completely unexpected, as he does produce Alliance War content on a regular basis, including the below video where he discusses the changes coming to future seasons. Judging by the video comments, not everyone is satisfied with the changes.
#4: Seatin Man of Legends
Last Month's Ranking: #1 (Tie)
Seatin Man of Legends was out of commission for a few days in early June because of an unfortunate computer/CPU issue
. Thankfully, he's now back in action and creating Marvel Contest of Champions and Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross content. Seatin's most popular recent upload, which you can watch below, is an overview of the MCoC "state of the game" developer diary
Last Month's Ranking: #1 (Tie)
Cynicalex is the sole Marvel Future Fight creator in our top ten. The game's June update is Hulk-themed, and Cynicalex is here to cover the details. Check out the video below to get his overview and opinion of the update, which he deems "promising".
MobileGamer, a.k.a. OhEmGee, jumped from #6 to #2 and was this period's biggest gainer. Among our top ten, he ranked #2 in new YouTube subscribers and #3 in new video views. He recently announced that he would be taking a break
from creating Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes content. Meanwhile, Marvel Strike Force is still on the menu! Check out the video below to watch him open 343 Milestone Orbs.
Last Month's Ranking: New to list
AhnaldT101 claims the throne in his second-ever appearance in our rankings (his first occurred last year)! Ahnald's focus has traditionally been Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes. That said, we've seen more Marvel Strike Force content from him since an issue arose with SWGoH's developers in early June (you can watch his video on the topic here
). Below you can find Ahnald's ranking of the ten best MSF characters for the month of July.

*Disclosure: Tauna is a sponsored participant in a recent promotion of the Lootcakes service. However, his appearance here is based entirely on his 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) 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.
