I have only been uploading VODs to YouTube for about 7 weeks so far (since the 20th of October) but in that time I noticed some distinct trends which I thought were quite interesting.
On days that Flash, Jaedong, Bisu or Stork play I get a lot more views and subscribers than other days. I especially noticed today as Flash, Bisu and Stork all played.
Here's an idea of some numbers:
OZ vs Woongjin on the 1st December
Killer vs Center Views: 154
Jaedong vs SoulKey Views: 460
Princess vs Crazy-Hydra Views: 109
Anytime vs Really Views: 166
Sky vs ZerO Views: 124
Hiya vs Free Views: 175
Jaedong vs PianO Views: 625
I assume Jaedong PianO got more views than Jaedong SoulKey due to it being the last game of the series (can't imagine PianO has more fans than SoulKey).
KT vs MBCGame on the 7th of December (yesterday):
Stats vs Sea Views: 185
Tempest vs HyuN Views: 175
Action vs Tiny Views: 142
Flash vs Light Views: 424
Violet vs Jaehoon Views: 269
These have been up about 30 hours and Flash's game has almost two and a half times the views of the rest despite the fact that it was almost an hour long (I assume Violet Jaehoon has extra views as it was the last game of the series).
Today's SKT1 vs Stars game (these have been up only 9 hours):
Hyuk vs Crazy-Hydra Views: 57
Bisu vs ZerO Views: 270
s2 vs free Views: 75
n.Die_soO vs Neo.G_Soulkey Views: 48
Kwanro vs Really Views: 75
Fantasy vs Flying Views: 141
Fantasy vs Zero Views: 228
I think the extra views in the last game are because it was an ace match and to due to an influx of Fantasy or Zero fans.
Yesterday with only Flash (of the more popular players playing) I got 6 subscribers. Today I have so far got 30 subscribers. I suppose there's nothing too suprising in these figures, everyone knows that these are the most popular players but I am often amused to see on a day how many people will just watch a Bisu or Jaedong game and not care about the rest. The last match in a series does tend to get extra views too.
Someone did a poll a few weeks ago asking something like "Do you follow teams or players?" Well there's your answer.
