Top 5 YouTubers & Streamers: May 2016

Presenting the month's top YouTubers and streamers, ranked by their stats!

#5: Tagg

 

Tagg's no stranger to the TF2 scene, though this period marks only his second appearance on the list. Tagg took advantage of NISLT's month-long disappearance to remain at #5. NISLT usually ranks #3 or #4 on the list, and last period marked the first time that he placed out of the top 5. NISLT returned to YouTube on June 7th and has promised to explain his disappearance in a future video. It'll be interesting to see if Tagg can extend his run for a third straight period; he has a leg up on Twitch, but NISLT usually generates 10+ times the amount of YouTube activity. Fun fact: Tagg streamed eight different games on Twitch during the past month. His most streamed game was (this should come as no surprise) TF2.

 


#3: Uncle Dane

 

Congrats to Uncle Dane for reaching 200k YouTube subscribers! To celebrate the occasion, he dropped a 20-minute TF2 parody mixtape filled with references that only TF2 players will understand. Listen to the songs in the video below, or check out the individual songs on Bandcamp. Uncle Dane also started his first t-shirt campaign. Shirts are only available until June 20th, so act quickly!

 

#1: Muselk

 

Muselk dominated the TF2 YouTube scene this period. His new YouTube subscriber and new video view totals are nearly 10 times that of any other creator on the list. Muselk recently played TF2 on a virtual reality device. See how he fared in the video below. Warning: the recording of Muselk's POV will appear curved due to the properties of the headset. It's especially noticeable when you look at the on-screen text.

Top 5 YouTubers & Streamers: April 2016

Presenting the month's top YouTubers and streamers, ranked by their stats!

#5: Tagg

 

Join us in welcoming Tagg to the top 5! Tagg is a former competitive player who made the transition to entertaining viewers on Twitch and YouTube. He placed #1 in ESEA seasons 13 and 14, during which he teamed with B4nny on High Rollers Gaming. Check out a highlight from Tagg's stream below! It features an appearance from Ster, who still plays but no longer makes TF2 videos.

 

 

#4: siN (NISLT)

 

NISLT only uploaded seven videos during this period, which is fewer than half his regular output. His latest video, which you can check out below, was uploaded on April 19th. This isn't the first time that NISLT has gone MIA; he took a break late last year to handle some IRL commitments. NISLT is generally quiet on social media, only taking time to post links to his videos, so we haven't seen any official announcements from the man himself. His YouTube video comments are filled with subscribers wondering what's up.

 

#3: Uncle Dane

 

Uncle Dane, the master engineer, is closing in on 200k YouTube subscribers! At his current pace, he should reach the milestone during June. In the video below, Dane teaches fellow engineers how to deal with pesky spies. In less exciting YouTube news, Dane's Sentry Beep video (which contains a song parodying Drake's Hotline Bling) was claimed by EMI. The video is still viewable, but Dane will no longer receive ad revenue from it.

 

#2: B4nny

 

Earlier this month, B4nny and team Froyotech took 1st place at ESEA Season 21. It was a nice return to form after they placed 3rd during the previous season. B4nny has been reviewing his Twitch subscribers' demo gameplay on stream. B4nny's goal, as stated in his video description: "The purpose is to share my experience with them and offer a new perspective on their playstyle so that they can improve. It is assumed that people will improve their DM naturally over time so I try to focus on gamesense, decision making and positioning advice during my reviews."

 

#1: Muselk

 

Get hyped, TF2 zombie mod fans! Muselk opened a dedicated server for TF2 zombies! The first server is located in the US, with additional servers being launched soon in the EU and Australia. Click this link to see the updated list of server IPs and check out the video below to watch Muselk's server announcement video. As usual, this month Muselk dominated the new YouTube subscriber and video view categories.

Top 5 YouTubers & Streamers: March 2016

Presenting the month's top YouTubers and streamers, ranked by their stats!

Uncle Dane returns to the top 5 after a one-period absence! Thanks to TF2's new integration of Twitch streams on the main menu, Uncle Dane recently broke his record for number of concurrent stream viewers. Uncle Dane recently made a video cautioning viewers against 'worshiping' influential content creators. It's more serious than his usual content and well worth a watch.



4.

FUNKe posted solid numbers on YouTube and Twitch, allowing him to maintain the #4 spot for the second straight period. Last month, FUNKe observed that he tends to receive fewer views on videos that he's proud of and more views on videos that he's less proud of. It's a paradox that many YouTubers - even ones outside of the gaming sphere - have to deal with.

3.

Congrats to NISLT for reaching 500k YouTube subscribers! If NISLT maintains this pace, he'll reach another milestone - 300 million total video views - around July 2016. NISLT runs one of the most diverse TF2 YouTube channels; he offers an eclectic mix of short clips, montages, competitive recaps, and interviews.

2.

During the past month, most of B4nny's YouTube uploads have been highlights from his Twitch stream. B4nny and his team, Froyotech, are back on the competitive grind. Follow the Twiitter accounts of B4nny and Froyotech to keep up with their streamed matches.

In late March, Muselk was invited to London to play a mystery video game. He couldn't reveal the name of the game until March 30th, but he gave some strong hints that the game was Doom ("I'd be doomed if I told you what it was," he hints in one video). Despite dabbling in other games, Muselk found time to upload plenty of TF2 videos during the past month.

Nate Fox cracks the top 5 for the first time! We've been tracking Nate for a while, and we're excited to finally be able to feature him on our list. Nate doesn't upload frequently, but each one of his videos is well crafted.

 

4.
FUNKe didn't get a chance to participate in the initial competitive matchmaking stress tests due to team scrims and matches, but we have no doubt that he'll end up joining a stress test in the near future.

 

3.
After taking a couple of breaks during the holiday season, NISLT is now back in the swing of things and moving up our list! He's once again uploading daily YouTube videos, including short clips, long compilations, competitive news and interviews.

 

2.
Want in-depth competitive matchmaking analysis? We suggest following B4nny, a competitive TF2 player who has been providing feedback to Valve since the beginning. Check out the video below to see B4nny participate in one of March's many beta stress tests. According to B4nny, a recent stress test on March 4th kept crashing due to too many players trying to participate. As he put it, this is a good problem to have because it shows that interest in the game mode is high!

 

1.
Muselk is this edition's undisputed YouTube champ. During the past month, he generated 13k more new subscribers and 4 million more video views than anyone else on the list.

Top 5 YouTubers & Streamers: January 2016

Presenting the month's top YouTubers and streamers, ranked by their stats!

Uncle Dane, an Engineer main and the #5 ranked creator for three straight periods, has been promoting the competitive matchmaking beta. Uncle Dane doesn't upload YouTube videos as frequently as some of the other creators on our list, but his content is all about quality, not quantity.

 

NISLT has been focusing on competitive TF2! He recently created two new series on his YouTube channel: an interview series with influential members of the competitive scene, and a weekly competitive news series. If you're not into the competitive scene, don't worry - NISLT still uploads plenty of fun clips, montages, and "how-to" videos.

 

This edition marks FUNKe's fifth straight appearance on our list. Fun fact: As of January 31st, FUNKe's most popular video is 31k views away from 1 million.

 

B4nny has been providing Valve with competitive matchmaking feedback for longer than anyone else. Now that Valve is extending beta invites to more players, the buzz surrounding competitive matchmaking is beginning to grow. B4nny has been way more active on YouTube during the past two months, and the result has been a 400k increase in monthly video views.

 

January was a historic month for Muselk, who reached the 500k subscriber milestone on the 20th. Muselk also spent part of his January filming for a gaming TV show on Disney XD.

Top 5 YouTubers & Streamers: December

Presenting Dec's top YouTubers and streamers, ranked by their monthly stats!

Uncle Dane mains the Engineer, which received nerfs during the Tough Break update. He lamented at the nerfs during a recent video.

 

NISLT recently launched a new series that features in-depth interviews with top TF2 pro players and content creators. It's nice to see him become more active in the competitive scene! NISLT's series is hosted by Sideshow, a competitive TF2 caster and player.

 

Congrats to FUNKe for reaching 100k YouTube subscribers in December! A few weeks ago, FUNKe released a video explaining why he thinks the updated Phlogistinator weapon is overpowered. The Phlogistinator has been a hot topic of discussion since the Tough Break update, so it's no surprise that the video below generated hundreds more comments than FUNKe's other December videos. Note: A few days after FUNKe's video was uploaded, Valve released a patch that prevented the Pyro's invulnerable period from lasting longer than its taunt.

 

Muselk, ranked #2, is in the process of making a 2015 "highlights" video.

 

B4nny kicked off 2016 by announcing that he may alter the logo of Froyotech, his competitive TF2 team. Because of B4nny's influence in the competitive scene, Valve has asked him to help test the competitive matchmaking mode. According to B4nny's recent videos and tweets, matchmaking development is coming along nicely.

Hey, TF2 players! Come check out the latest from the game's top YouTubers, including how this month's #1 creator reacted to the recent TF2 Arkham Knight contest and Saxxy Awards.

It's Uncle Dane's first top 5 appearance! This Engineer player uploads YouTube videos weekly. Uncle Dane's latest video is a hilarious parody of Drake's Hotline Bling song, remade with lyrics written about the TF2 Engineer. You can listen to the song below. It's always exciting to see creators take a risk and upload something out of the ordinary!

 

NISLT has returned! After a nearly month-long absence due to IRL commitments, NISLT began uploading again on November 19th. You can check out the video that marks his return below. NISLT is back in the groove of daily uploads, so next edition we fully expect him to shoot up the rankings and challenge Muselk for the top spot. Like many players on our list, NISLT has been dabbling in Overwatch.

 

B4nny, the leader of team Froyotech, is the sole competitive player in our top 5. After a disappointing 3rd place finish at the latest ESEA-I tournament, Froyotech was disbanded. B4nny went on to assemble a group of new teammates earlier this week. Thanks to B4nny, we've got some exciting news to share about the competitive matchmaking feature that was announced earlier in the year: Last week, B4nny received a beta pass to test the feature with TF2's developers. A release date hasn't been announced, but rumors are that it will go live in just one or two months!

 

FUNKe's Steam Group has grown to over 10k members, and he's noticed a rise in malicious players attempting to phish information from unsuspecting members. Unfortunately, this is a common problem in many large Steam groups. FUNKe touches on the subject in the video below. It's worth the watch if you're a member of a large Steam group run by a popular content creator. Always be wary of impostors, and don't give out your private info to other members of the group!

 

Muselk, who celebrated his 21st birthday a few weeks ago, is back on top! He generated the most new YouTube subscribers and video views during the past month. Click here to read Muselk's opinion on this year's Saxxy Award nominees. Muselk's TF2 videos average over 200,000 views.
