Although MobileGamer relinquished the throne this period, he seems to have solidified himself in the elite tier of Marvel mobile game creators. In 2020 he's steadily surged up the rankings, particularly after his mid-June stoppage of Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes content. His average rank over the past four periods has been 2.75, compared with 8.75 over the prior four periods. Watch below as he reviews some new store offers and discusses a potential X-23 teaser.
#1: Seatin Man of Legends
Seatin Man of Legends reclaims the throne after finishing second last period and fourth before that. This time around, he led the pack in new subscribers while his three million+ new video views were more than double the closest competitor. When Seatin's not playing Marvel Contest of Champions, you can find him on The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross or the Realm of Champions beta. In his most popular recent upload below, Seatin shows off his 6-star rank 2 Professor X.
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 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.
