It’s time for another monthly installment of our Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Gaming Channels Chart and a now familiar British gamer occupies the top spot.
TheDiamondMinecart is in first place for the third month in a row. The top gaming channel hailing from the UK with a penchant for Minecraft was up 10% in views in the short month of February to top out at more than 349.6 million of them. In a not-so-close second place is PopularMMos. The top US-based gamer maintained its second-place position despite a 9% month-over-month dip in views to bottom out at almost 254.9 million.
In third place is VanossGaming. The Canadian gamer jumped up two spots thanks to a better-than-average decrease in views during the 29 days of the month. The channel only took a 6% hit to score more than 251.4 million views in February. In a kinda close fourth place is PewDiePie. The most-viewed and most-subscribed YouTube channel of all time dropped 9% to amass over 245.9 million views in the month.
And rounding out the Top 5 is JackSepticEye. The Irish gamer missed out on the #4 spot by less than 200,000 views to end the month with almost 245.8 million views.
The honor of one of our Top Gainers this month goes to M3RKMUS1C.
In a month with only 29 days, it’s tough for a channel to see an uptick in its month-over-month view count. M3RKMUS1C, however, saw one in the double digits. The channel that’s home to the multiple online personalities of American gamer Erik Phillips bills itself as a home for “Minecraft Trolling, Call of Duty Gun Game Reactions, and GTA 5 Online Funny Moments” showcased in videos uploaded four days a week. That steady supply of content usually ensures M3RKMUS1C sees a solid view count, but February was somewhat exceptional due to popular uploads like “AKIMBO CROSSBOWS!? (Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 Crossbow).”
All in all the channel witnessed a 31% month-over-month increase in views, more than 43.7 million views on the month, and the #57 spot on the worldwide gaming chart.
