The PUBG Mobile brothers both made our rankings for a 3rd straight period! Sevou's channel was created nearly a year later than his bro Levinho's.

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.
Please note, N/A means the creator did not broadcast a video for this game on the applicable platform during the relevant period. Since any views they did achieve were for other games, we chose not to count them here. A dash (-) means the creator does not have an account on any relevant platforms in the associated category.
Each edition, we begin by compiling a list of: (a) the top 10 PUBG YouTubers (in the English language) since last edition based on the views generated by their top PUBG video upload during the relevant period; and (b) the top 10 PUBG Twitch streamers (in the English language) since last edition based on their average number of views per stream during the relevant period. The YouTube list is sourced from YouTube search and the Twitch list is sourced from Twinge (twinge.tv). Creators on the list are awarded 0-100 points in each of 4 categories: views of new PUBG YouTube videos, new YouTube subscribers, new Twitch followers, and new Twitch and YouTube stream views. The data from all 4 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 of the tracked game during the current period AND having generated 100 or more subscribers. 'Active' in the New Twitch Followers category is defined as having streamed the tracked game on Twitch during the current period AND having generated 100 or more Twitch followers. 'Active' in the New YouTube and Stream Views categories is defined as having uploaded/streamed the tracked game during the current period. For example, if 90% of creators uploaded a YouTube video of the tracked game during the current period, then 90 points are available in the New YouTube Video Views category.
(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).
