ValleyFlyin is the sole newcomer to our top 10. As of writing, this Marvel Strike Force YouTuber is under one month away from reaching the three-year anniversary of his first YouTube upload (the featured game was Marvel Avengers Alliance 2) Check out the video below to watch ValleyFlyin's first impressions of latest Marvel Strike Force update.
We've got a three-way tie at #7! All three YouTubers had very similar new subscriber and video view totals. Beast Mode Gaming is the first Marvel Future Fight YouTuber on our list. We've also seen him upload Devil May Cry 5 and Red Dead Redemption 2 videos during the current period. One of Beast Mode Gaming's most popular recent uploads features the newly released Captain Marvel. Watch it below!
MobileGamer (aka OhEmGee) is a Marvel Strike Force YouTuber who also plays tons of Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes. He recently shared on Twitter news about his attendance at this year's E3. We can't wait to get his inside scoop at the event! Check out the video below to watch MobileGamer and #10 ranked ValleyFlyin discuss stealth changes and Captain Marvel-related topics in Marvel Strike Force.
How fitting that the three YouTubers tied at #7 each represent a different Marvel mobile game! RichTheMan is a Contest of Champions YouTuber. Like many Marvel content creators, he's looking forward to the combined Marvel cinematic universe following the Disney-Fox merger. Rich recently created a series of info-packed MCoC game guides. Watch his ISO-8 guide below, his gold grind guide here, his 4-star shard grind guide here, or his tier 2 alpha grind guide here.
Crystal Opening Whale does more than just open Contest of Champions crystals in his videos; he also creates guides and shows off his gameplay. That said, crystal openings are definitely his bread and butter. Crystal Opening Whale's most popular recent upload may be his most epic crystal opening video to date. Check it out below!
Our top 5 is dominated by Contest of Champions YouTubers, including Lagacy. In other Marvel-related news, Lagacy recently showed off his collection of Marvel movies - and like us - he's eagerly anticipating this summer's Avengers: Endgame movie. Check out the video below to see Lagacy showcase a tense alliance war that occurred right before the end of the season.
Prof Hoff managed to reach the 30,000 YouTube subscriber milestone before the end of March. This Contest of Champions YouTuber has been uploading videos since September 2011. Prof Hoff's most popular recent upload will help players get the most bang for their Intel. Check out his evaluation of the Intel store's best and worst values below.
ContestChampion was one of the current edition's biggest gainers. Compared to last period, he gained nearly 1,000 more new subscribers and over 200,000 more new video views. ContestChampion's gains were enough to move him into a tie for 3rd with fellow MCoC YouTuber Prof Hoff. Watch the video below to see the results of ContestChampion's Nick Fury grind.
For the second straight month, Cynicalex is the only non-Contest of Champions YouTuber in our top 5. Fun fact: Cynicalex and #1
ranked Seatin Man of Legends were the only two ranked YouTubers to amass
over 1 million new videos views during the current period. Check out the video below to watch Cynicalex discuss potential Avengers: Endgame updates coming to Marvel Future Fight, plus the game's 5-year anniversary. Exciting times are ahead!
The maestro of Marvel Contest of Champions once again claims the top spot! Seatin Man of Legends recently shouted out his alliance family (Omni) on Twitter. Check them out if you're actively seeking an alliance and you meet their prestige requirements! Check out the video below to watch Seatin break down the release notes for patch 22.1.

take a look at the table below. Click the table to enlarge.
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:
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 havinggenerated 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.
