Last Month's Ranking: #12
RichTheMan returns to our top ten after a two-period absence. Earlier in October, Rich was one of the many Marvel mobile game content creators who journeyed to NYC for New York Comic Con. Unfortunately, he lost
the phone that contained most of his NYCC video footage and photos. He did post some content before he lost his phone - including this recap of day two of his NYCC experience.
Last Month's Ranking: #6
ContestChampion was another attendee of New York Comic Con. Here's
a photo him and #10 ranked RichTheMan enjoying the NYCC festivities. Check out the video below for ContestChampion's informative interview with a senior systems designer at Kabam who works on Alliance Wars in Marvel Contest of Champions.
It's been half a year since ValleyFlyin's last appearance in our top ten! When we last checked in with this Marvel Strike Force YouTuber, he was discussing his first impressions
of MSF's update 3.0. These days, the Halloween update is the hot topic of discussion. Watch the video below to get ValleyFlyin and #5 ranked MobileGamer's update thoughts and predictions.
#7 (Tie): Unofficial Kabam Mike
Unofficial Kabam Mike reached the 20,000 YouTube subscriber milestone in late September. Congratulations! This Marvel Contest of Champions YouTuber has been uploading videos for nearly 1.5 years. Mike's most popular recent upload is an in-depth guide on how to defeat Mephisto (Uncollected). Judging by the video's comments, many players found the guide to be extremely helpful.
MobileGamer, a.k.a. OhEmGee, has been dabbling in another mobile game
called Dragon Champions (his two main games are Marvel Strike Force and Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes). On the MSF front, MobileGamer has been producing a ton of content around the newly released Ghost Rider. Below is one of his most recent Ghost Rider uploads.

#1: Seatin Man of Legends
Seatin Man of Legends participated in the Marvel Contest of Champions Ultimate Final

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 having generated 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.
