Jay Michael Burton, better known online as Subscriber Wars, is an English YouTube channel that focuses on various subscriber channel rivalries. Most of the videos are pretty active since the videos are mostly livestream which have an active amount of viewers, and there is a bunch of different moments during the subscriber count race. Some examples of this type of race would contain certain YouTubers getting a certain amount of subscribers and one channel suppressing another YouTuber. One of the special features of this channel, is there is a four way contest for subscribes, and the chat feature is enabled. The livestreams feature songs that are played, and there are over 3,500 songs which are located in the playlist which are not directly located on the channel but are important for the channel's experience.

The channel suffered a big hit after YouTube abbreviated their Subscriber Counts in September 2019 but it is still getting by.

After YouTube abbreviated Sub Counts, he moved onto other Social Media Battles like TikTok and Twitter.

He later used estimated subscriber counts for YouTube.

As of this Edit Subscriber Wars is at 29,400 and YT Battles at 25,600. (April 28, 2020)

The partnership ended in October 2019 due to toxicity between the two communities.
