Scroll down for the Tubefilter Chart.

It’s time for another monthly installment of our Tubefilter Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Gaming Channels Chart and PewDiePie is still on top.

Chart Toppers

Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie*** channel is still resting comfortably in its #1 spot on the YouTube Gaming Channels Chart. The twentysomething Swedish gamer’s online video collection of Let’s Play videos scored more than 299 million views during the short 28 days of February. Next up in second place is Kjellberg’s fellow UK-based gamer The Diamond Minecart. An 18% increase in views pushed the channel’s monthly view count up to more than 249.5 million.

PopularMMOs is up next in the #3 spot. The top gamer from the U.S. took a 12% hit in its view count to end the month just shy of 233.7 million. Stampylonghead, the UK-based gamer with a penchant for Minecraft and education, saw a 12% dip in views, too, to end the week in fourth place with nearly 222.9 million of them.

And rounding out the Top 5 is JackSepticEye. The Irish gamer stayed relatively constant in February with more than 194.7 million views.

***Savvy online video viewers will notice that Felix Kjellberg’s PewDiePie channel’s monthly view count is down a significant amount this month in terms of views. Looking at our data, the channel saw a negative view count during a few days in the month of February that numbered in the 100s of millions. That could be an error on behalf of YouTube or it could be the result of a legitimate view count audit. The world’s largest video sharing site sometimes makes mistakes when tallying view counts and then later may take away views from a channel if the company finds a miscalculation. But regardless of how the situation came to be, the data we receive from YouTube is the data we’re sticking with. We’ll update the numbers ASAP if we receive any updated metrics or information.

A Closer Look At The Top 10

Our friends over at Tiltify put together a snazzy video with clips from the Top 10 Gaming Channels this month. Check it out for a primer on the kind of content the most viewed gaming channels on YouTube distribute and/or to catch scenes from your favorite channels.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this month goes to Clash of Clans.

The YouTube home of the popular freemium mobile MMO strategy game had a particularly great February on YouTube thanks to the enduring power of a Super Bowl spot and Liam Neeson. The star of the Taken franchise apparently has a particular set of skills, which involves getting the Clash of Clans YouTube channel a LOT of views. His ad for the game quickly racked up an eight-figure view count, giving Clash of Clans‘ YouTube channel a 98% month-over-month increase in views, more than 85.3 million views on the month, and the #11 spot on the chart.
