#10: Jason Voorhees
Last Month's Ranking: #7 (Tie)
Jason Voorhees, a Marvel Contest of Champions YouTuber, makes his second consecutive top 10 appearance (and fourth overall). Jason's most popular recent upload (found below) is a exploration of Professor X's synergies once the character reaches max Cerebro charges.
Last Month's Ranking: #12
Khasino returns to our top 10 after a half-year absence! The last time he was featured, Khasino had just broken the 25k subscriber milestone on YouTube (as of writing, he has 31k). Drop by Khasino's Twitch channel here
or see below for his take on what makes Marvel Strike Force's Sinister Six the top Alliance War team, plus his preview of Anti-Venom's kit.
Last Month's Ranking: #7 (Tie)
RichTheMan is closing in on the 50k YouTube subscriber milestone. At his current pace, we expect him to get there in early November. In addition to creating Marvel Contest of Champions videos, Rich also hosts a monthly podcast with fellow creator FrontlineMCOC. Check out their podcast here
or watch below as he discusses upcoming game content and shows off his roster.
Last Month's Ranking: New to list
BrutalDLX is the sole newcomer to our top 10. His channel is only three months old; his first upload was made on August 19, 2020. That said, BrutalDLX is actually a long-time player and a legend in the Marvel Contest of Champions community; he even has his own page
on the MCoC Wiki! See below for his overview of Kang, a champion that has a particular historical significance with BrutalDLX.
Last Month's Ranking: #6
Congrats to Lagacy on reaching the 75k YouTube subscriber milestone! To commemorate the occasion, he collected questions
on Twitter and answered them in two videos (view part 1 here
and part 2 here
). If you'd rather watch Marvel Contest of Champions gameplay, see below for one of Lagacy's recent war boss fights.
Last Month's Ranking: #2 (Tie)
ContestChampion is one of seven Marvel Contest of Champions YouTubers who made our top ten. He was unable to replicate last period's #2 finish - mostly due to a decrease in new subscribers. See below as ContestChampion engages in a mass level-up session (he'd been waiting for the updated rewards to arrive before pulling the trigger).
#4: Prof Hoff
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
Prof Hoff holds down the #4 rank for the second straight period. Among our top 10 creators, he's one of three whose rank didn't change. In the below video, this Marvel Contest of Champions YouTuber discusses his excitement for the upcoming Cosmic Ghost Rider champion.
Marvel Strike Force is implementing a sim mode in Blitz - to be launched in December - and according to this
recent tweet MobileGamer is hyped! He discusses the announcement below. Although MobileGamer hasn't returned to making Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes content, we've watched him expand his gaming catalog to Among Us and Tom Clancy's Elite Squad in recent weeks.
Last Month's Ranking: #4 (Tie)
Judging by Cynicalex's recent tweets and videos, he's been on a quest to get Marvel Future Fight's developers to improve ABX rewards. In his final upload of September (found below), Cynicalex tests each Captain America uniform against World Boss Proxima Midnight Stage 50. Which one do you think will come out on top?
#1: Seatin Man of Legends
Seatin Man of Legends holds down the fort for the second consecutive period - and in convincing fashion - after placing #1 in both subscribers gained and new video views. Marvel Contest of Champions is releasing a massive update in October, and Seatin is here to cover the news. Below he spends over twenty minutes going over the update notes.
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.
