One of the most popular YouTube stars from the UK is Alastair Aiken, better known online as Ali-A. His main source of notoriety is the Activision video game “Call of Duty.” He gained notoriety in 2009 when he started posting his gameplay videos on his YouTube channel, “Ali-A,” which has over 8.8 million subscribers. He started uploading one or two videos every day after that. His extraordinary skill at video games made him an instant sensation among gamers, and his channel quickly took off and passed the million subscriber milestone. Since then, he has started a second YouTube channel with the name “MoreAliA,” where he has demonstrated his impressive skill in video games other than the Call of Duty series. In addition to YouTube, he also has a sizable social media following on other sites. His Twitter and Instagram profiles each have more than 2 million followers. In addition to earning money via YouTube, he also makes a lot of money from merchandise, sponsorships, endorsements, and advertisements.

The Epic Ascent to Stardom

Alastair began his YouTube channel in 2006, but he didn’t begin posting videos there until 2009. He recorded gameplays for the hugely popular first-person shooter video game “Call of Duty” for his videos. His films didn’t get a lot of views in the beginning, but eventually, they spread over social media, and soon players from all over the world became aware of his amazing style. By 2013, he had one million subscribers, and by 2016, he had eight million. Talk about a rapid ascent!

His channel includes gameplays that walk new players through the game’s many difficult levels, but he also shares advice, evaluations of the game and its levels, information about impending Call of Duty releases, and news about other gaming devices.

His YouTube account gives players access to all accessible information on Call of Duty and its numerous franchises, including Call of Duty: WWII, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. His main channel AliA is the most subscribed to and most watched Call of Duty channel on YouTube, according to two Guinness World Records.

His second channel, “MoreAliA,” features his gameplays in different video game genres, including Mario, Minecraft, and Pokemon Go. He launched his Pixelmon series on the channel, which propelled him to YouTube success (playing Minecraft with a Pixelmon Mod that adds Pokemon similar items/mobs). He also published the immensely popular Ali-Adventure A’s series for Minecraft.

The number of views and subscribers on Alastair’s secondary channel is quickly catching up to those on his major one. 4.5 million subscribers and over 7 billion views since its debut in 2013!

Since 2014, Alastair Aiken has presided over two incarnations of the “Legends of Gaming” gaming competition. The second season became a tremendous success despite the previous season not receiving much viewership. He competed against gaming greats like Diamond Minecart, TwiinSane, AshleyMariee, and Syndicate in the second season. In the championship match, he defeated TwiinSane to claim victory.

Alastair operates an online store where he offers branded goods with unique Ali-A logos, including t-shirts, caps, backpacks, and more. Additionally, he has a sponsorship agreement with Monster Beverages, and each time he advertises their goods in his films, he is compensated.
