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 6/25.
RichTheMan spent the last few days of the period on vacation, though it hasn't affected his upload schedule (we suspect he's scheduled some videos to upload during his absence). Drop by his Instagram page to follow his vacation adventures, or watch the video below to hear Rich discuss the pros and cons of being Alliance-free in Marvel Contest of Champions.
MobileGamer recently attended E3, where he mingled with other YouTube stars like Dr. Disrespect and more. Check out his Twitter timeline to see what else he was up to at E3, or watch the video below for his recap of recent Marvel Strike Force news - including new Spider-Man characters.
In June, Beast Mode Gaming tweeted out multiple first-come, first served codes for 300 free crystals in Marvel Future Fight. It's a nice gesture to his followers! Marvel Future Fight is getting new characters in conjunction with the Spider-Man Far From Home movie. Check out the video below to watch Beast Mode Gaming detail some of these new characters!
Lagacy and a handful of other Marvel Contest of Champions YouTubers will be attending this year's New York Comic-Con. Lagacy's attendance isn't surprising to us, considering he was the first-ever NYCC Ultimate Champion in the Contest of Champions tournament. Check out the video below for some rank 5 Namor gameplay.
Top Ten is the sole ranked creator who doesn't commentate over his videos, instead choosing to use images and text to relay information to his viewers. This Marvel Future Fight YouTuber first began uploading videos in December 2017. Check out the video below to watch him enter the Collector's Vault Event.
Judging by his recent tweets and uploads, ContestChampion has been on the grind in Act 6.2 of Marvel Contest of Champions. In this recent tweet, he calls Act 6.2.5 the "hardest quest in the game currently". See below to watch the video referenced in his tweet. In the video, ContestChampion shares some tips to take down the Mordo boss.
Prof Hoff and Pungence were the only two ranked creators who improved their rank over last period. Prof Hoff's new subscriber count remained steady, while his new YouTube video views nearly doubled. By popular viewer request, Prof Hoff addressed the question: Should you take your 6-stars to Rank 2 or 5-stars to Rank 5 in Marvel Contest of Champions? Watch the video below.
Judging by his tweets, Toronto resident Cynicalex was buzzing when the Raptors won the NBA Finals. This period, he's one of three featured creators who focus on Marvel Future Fight content. In Cynicalex's most popular recent upload, he shares information and speculation on new Spider-Man Far From Home content in Future Fight. Watch it below!
Pungence makes his second-ever ranked appearance! He returns after a one-period absence, having previously finished #1. Although Pungence only uploaded one Marvel Strike Force video during the current period (watch it below), his impressive YouTube subscriber gains catapulted him to #2 - only four points shy of the throne! At his current pace, Pungence will reach 2 million subs before the end of July.
Seatin Man of Legends has once again captured the Marvel mobile game throne - his fourth #1 finish over five periods! This Contest of Champions YouTuber recently took to Twitter to express his excitement over the game's July events. Check out the video below to watch Seatin's most popular recent upload, a takedown of the Act 6.2 Power Stone Champion Final Boss using dual Symbiote Supreme & Captain America (Infinity War).
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) 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:
(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 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.
