According to figures from the AI platform,  Taiwan ranks fifth in the global mobile game market in the first half of 2023. Besides, the 2023 Astra Esports Awards held early this month invited the well-known gaming KOL Toyz to be the award presenter, which triggered huge discussions leading to over 10,000 social volume and making Taiwan’s gaming KOL community become the center of attention. It’s time to raise a question: how does the gaming industry capture the trend and players’ attention, as well as achieve positive comments through KOL marketing? With AsiaKOL’s exclusive AIE database, the article integrates and lists the Top 100 Taiwanese gaming KOLs in 2023, dives into the characteristics of KOLs with excellent performance and high interaction rates in the community, and the ways to make full use of their advantages.


      1. The General View Of Top 20 Taiwanese Gaming KOLs 

From the ranking of the Top 20 Taiwanese Gaming KOLs, it is obvious that every gaming KOL runs Facebook and YouTube. Here is the funny point: The follower number of @loboisgood, which ranks first, is not particularly outstanding. The key to ranking first is that its interaction and content scores are as high as 5 points. When choosing a gaming KOL for the campaign, the number of followers is not the central focus, but rather the interaction rates. Besides, in the Top 20 gaming KOLs, half of them are active in a single field while the other half choose to run content about fashion, fitness, and travel along with their main gaming field.

      2. The Social Platform Of Top 100 Gaming KOLs

Given the proportion of social platforms, YouTube occupies the most active KOLs, with only one KOL skipping it. As video is the main content form to interact with audiences in the gaming KOL community, YouTube featuring video content has attracted most KOLs on the list to build the profile on such notable platform. Followed by Facebook, with 94% of the KOLs running the profile, as Facebook is more suitable for sharing content from YouTube. In contrast, fewer KOLs choose to focus on building Instagram as the platform’s main users are women, while gamers are mostly men.


      3. The Gender Distribution And Difference In Building Platform Of 100 Gaming KOLs

In terms of gender distribution, the ratio of men to women among the Top 100 gaming KOLs is quite disparate, with male KOLs accounting for as high as 65%, while female KOLs still account for a smaller number on the list. Besides, both genders are different in social management. Male gaming KOLs have the largest number of subscribers on YouTube as they prefer watching videos for gaming information; while female gaming KOLs are more inclined to share information about offline physical activities or daily life events. Therefore, on Facebook and Instagram, which mainly feature pictures and text, the fan base of female KOLs is relatively high.


    4. Diving Into The Topics Of Top 100 Gaming KOLs

In addition, among the Top 100 gaming KOLs, there are up to 67% only operating in a single field, while 33% are active in multiple fields. If game promotion and player attraction are the main targets, brands are recommended to choose single-field KOLs. In contrast, collaboration with cross-field KOLs can extend beyond gaming fields. For example, gaming and fun cross-field KOLs can conduct commercial cooperation through live streaming or humorous content, while cross-field KOLs in gaming, fashion, and trends can collaborate on gaming peripheral products to capture niche audiences and make the marketing audience more precise.


      5. The Interaction Of The Top 100 Gaming KOLs

Observing the social interaction performance of the Top 100 gaming KOLs on Facebook and Instagram, AsiaKOL found that KOLs with excellent interaction are good at shooting short videos and writing humorous social posts.
