#5 (Tie): Sevou

Last Month's Ranking: New to list

A newcomer enters the fray! Because Sevou and Levinho tied for the #5 rank, in this period we're featuring six content creators instead of five. Coincidentally, Sevou and Levinho are brothers! Sevou recently reached the 250k YouTube subscriber milestone. Congratulations! Check out the video below to see Sevou play with a handcam to dispel any notion that he could be a cheater/hacker.



#5 (Tie): Levinho
Last Month's Ranking: #4

Levinho frequently promotes his brother Sevou's YouTube channel in his own videos, so it's fitting that they both shared the #5 rank! This period, Sevou had an advantage in new YouTube subscribers and video views, while Levinho had the upper hand in streaming views. Watch below to check out Levinho's most popular recent upload, which features an impressive number of kills.



#4: Danucd
Last Month's Ranking: #5

Danucd broke through the 150k Twitch follower mark and the 100k YouTube subscriber mark in March. She recently shared on Twitter her new branded gaming chair. She also tweeted two pieces of constructive criticism about the game. Check out Danucd's Twitch stream here, or watch below to witness two epic solo matches from her stream.



#3: PewDiePie

Last Month's Ranking: New to list

PewDiePie (a YouTuber who needs no introduction) uploaded one piece of PUBG video content during the current period: a sponsored YouTube stream of the PUBG Mobile zombie mode. He and T-Series have been in a competition for the title of YouTube's most-subscribed channel. PewDiePie doesn't upload PUBG content frequently, so make sure to get your fix and check out the stream below!




Shroud's absence during the current period (his primary focus has been on Apex Legends) left the door open for chocoTaco to climb one spot and claim the #2 rank! In other news, chocoTaco announced a new sponsor on Twitter. Drop by his stream here, or check out the video below to watch him review patch notes from PUBG Update #27. You can expect a lot of exciting changes from the patch!



#1: BluePanda
Last Month's Ranking: #2

After spending three months at #2, BluePanda managed to claim the PUBG throne from Shroud (who didn't create any new PUBG content in the current period). BluePanda is a PUBG Mobile YouTuber with two active channels - both of which have over 1.5 million subscribers. He recently mentioned this feat on Twitter. For a change of pace from the typical gameplay video, watch below to see BluePanda analyze one of #3 ranked PewDiePie's recent matches!




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. 

Scoring System:

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).
