PewDiePie mounts stunning comeback to overtake T-Series in YouTube sub battle

Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg might have thought that it was all over when T-Series pulled away by a massive margin in the great YouTube subscriber battle, but somehow the Swede has bounced back in extraordinary fashion.

PewDiePie admitted defeat to the Indian production company on March 30 after seeing that T-Series were sailing into the distance with a lead of over 100,000 subscribers in the race to 100 million subs. 

However, after members of his passionate fanbase encouraged people to get behind the YouTuber ahead of what’s been dubbed ‘International PewDiePie day’ on April 29, clearly their efforts are paying off time and time again.

PewDiePie / YouTubePewDiePie has somehow overtaken T-Series again in YouTube subscribers, with around a 12,000 sub lead.

How strong is PewDiePie’s lead over T-Series? 

In what might be the most impressive turnaround of the battle yet, the Swedish content creator has managed to recover the humongous deficit and sits around 12,000 subs ahead of T-Series – according to live subscriber counts, at the time of writing. 

T-Series have previously overtaken PewDiePie by 10,000 and later 30,000 subscribers in the past, but 100,000 was by far their strongest margin yet. Not many believed that it could, or would, be possible for another bounce back. Yet, Pewds’ fanbase just keeps getting stronger and stronger.

PewDiePie vs T-Series: Who will reach 100 million subs first?

Based on the statistics seen so far, it’s very difficult to say whether or not PewDiePie will rise to 100 million subscribers first, but he does seem to have the edge where major milestones are concerned. 

If T-Series can slip up with a lead of 100,000 subscribers, who knows where the battle will end. One thing is for sure, though, things seem to be going right to the wire in the great YouTube battle and there doesn’t seem any evidence to suggest it will slow down any time soon.
