Subscriber count as of today: KittyKatGaming – 357,733
Mortem3r – 309,951
KittyKatGaming is run by a gamer who goes by Mortem3r, who has a second channel also called Mortem3r. On KittyKatGaming, you can find many different gaming genres, ranging from indie to multiplayer games like Mario Party and The Jackbox Party Pack. A large part of the KKG channel is about interacting with fans, so usually when Mortem3r plays things like Jackbox, she’ll open the game up so subscribers can play as well.
Recently, due to YouTube’s infamous algorithm, KKG hasn’t been receiving as many views and Mortem3r made a video saying that she believes her channel has been shadow banned.
Shadow banning is when a content creator thinks that their channel is being hidden from potential viewers by not showing up when searched, current subscribers have been suddenly unsubscribed, or their videos are not showing up in a subscriber’s feed. Due to this, Mortem3r has decided to move completely over to her Mortem3r channel and continue making all of her KKG content there. The Mortem3r channel currently consists of vlogs, general chatting, and beauty videos.
