Are you ready to meet some new faces? GoofyRhexxi enters our top 10 for the first time! This Marvel Strike Force content creator's first upload dates back to June 19, 2020. Since then, he's uploaded over 100 videos and has amassed 530k total views (as of writing). Check out the video below for GoofyRhexxi's most popular recent upload, in which he expresses his concerns about the game.
Karatemike415 is the second newcomer to join our top 10. Mike is a Marvel Content of Champions YouTuber and a member of Kabam's Content Creator Program. You can learn more about him in his creator spotlight interview, or see below for a Season 24 Alliance War video.
Fun fact: Among our top 10 creators, Rich is the only one who regularly uploads Marvel Realm of Champions content. That said, Rich's Contest of Champions uploads are generating more views. Check out the video below for Rich's look back at MCoC's evolution since 2014. In other news, Rich's Contest Realm podcast (which he hosts with FrontlineMCOC) recently celebrated its one-year anniversary. Congrats!
Prof Hoff has uploaded over 200 Marvel Contest of Champions videos during the current period, making him by far the most prolific uploader among our top 10 ranked creators. In Prof Hoff's most popular recent upload (found below), he commentates a wild crystal opening session submitted by a viewer.
MobileGamer, A.K.A. OhEmGee, has been the highest ranked Marvel Strike Force creator for the past seven periods. In the video below, MobileGamer presents his popular monthly ranking of the top 10 MSF characters. Bonus: Check out January's video to see how the list has changed over the past month!
Break out the birthday cake! Cynicalex celebrated his birthday in early February. Speaking of birthdays, the "birth" date of his YouTube channel is April 30th - less than three months away. Cynicalex's most popular recent upload (found below) is a live reaction to the v680 update stream on the official Marvel Future Fight channel.
Fun fact: Our top three ranked creators remain unchanged from last period, and all are Marvel Contest of Champions players! Among the trio, Lagacy is the one braving the coldest temperatures. See below for his recent Incursion push with fellow content creator YeetOS.
ContestChampion's frequent internet issues have hopefully been resolved by a new service plan and a new modem. We'll keep our fingers crossed for him! In the video below, ContestChampion celebrates the new year by going on a leveling up spree with a bunch of MCoC champions.
Seatin Man of Legends is inching ever closer to the 300k YouTube subscriber milestone. After gaining 3k subs in the current period, he's on pace to reach 300k before the midpoint of 2021. Seatin is the second top 10 ranked creator to celebrate a birthday during the current period.

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.
