Each month, Lootcakes ranks the top PUBG streamers (and YouTubers) by popularity, and highlights their notable recent content for your viewing pleasure. This edition covers the period ending 9/26.
Last Month's Ranking: #3
Congrats to BluePanda on reaching the four million YouTube subscriber milestone on his PUBG Mobile channel! He hit three million in June and four million in early September. As of writing, his other channel has nearly two million subs. Check out the video below to watch Panda react to highlights from MortaL, a PUBG Mobile pro player and content creator.
Last Month's Ranking: #7
This period marks Danucd's first top five ranked appearance since March 2019 (and her fourth in total). She and #2 ranked chocoTaco are the two PC PUBG representatives in this period's top five (the others play on mobile). These two took advantage of dips in PUBG activity from Shroud and Dr. Disrespect to claim top five spots. Drop by Danucd's stream here or watch her YouTube video below for recent stream highlights.
This period marks Sevou's highest ever finish in our rankings! His average finish over seven periods has been 4.6. At Sevou's current pace, we expect him to reach two million YouTube subscribers around November 1st. Check out the video below to hear Sevou speak for the first time in a video!
Last Month's Ranking: #6
chocoTaco's back in our top five after a three-period absence! He's the only top five ranked creator who attended TwitchCon, which took place from September 27 – 29 in San Diego, CA. Check out chocoTaco's Twitch channel here or drop by his YouTube channel here to watch stream highlights. In his most popular recent YouTube upload (below), chocoTaco equips the tommy gun.
Winner winner chicken dinner! Levinho ascends the PUBG throne for the first time in eight appearances. His average finish over these periods has been 3.25. Check out the video below to watch Levinho team up with his brother, #3 ranked Sevou, for a combined 36 kills.
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).
