Ludwig has overcome Ninja’s record of holding the most subscribers on Twitch. He started his stream on March 14 and it took him thirty-one days to achieve his target.

Ludwig Ahgren started his sub marathon on March 14 and one month later he has broken Ninja’s sub count record. Ahgren is now the most subbed streamer on Twitch with over 282,000 subscribers. The streamer has been streaming for over a month and finally ended the livestream on April 13.

Ludwig started a sub marathon on March 14 with an ambitious goal of dethroning Ninja as the channel with the most subscribers. Nearly thirty days later, Ludwig achieved his target. Towards the end, he announced he would be donating all revenue from the final day to charity. This helped push him over Ninja’s sub count.

Ludwig started his stream with a 30-minute timer and each additional sub would add ten seconds to the timer. If the timer would have run out, and it did come close on occasion, the stream would have ended. But the streamer’s loyal fanbase kept the timer up with a lot of donation gifts and prime subs. The variety streamer hit 100,000 subscribers in just a few days, although the next hundred took him a few weeks.

Ludwig had originally planned the stream to last just a few days. But the constant barrage of new subscriptions kept increasing the timer. Ludwig streamed 24/7 for the past month, although he did take adequate rest with the stream on. It has finally come to an end as the streamer hit his self-proclaimed deadline of 31 days.

Ludwig hyped up his followers as he closed in on Ninja’s record. When he overtook Ninja, the 25-year-old streamer saluted his fanbase as his community had created history. It’s an innovative approach to streaming, but one that helped him reach his target. 

Ninja’s sad but congratulates Ludwig

Ninja congratulated Ludwig as he took the Twitch throne. “Records are meant to be broken” he said. The previous record belonged to Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins who took the streaming world by storm during his 2019 stream with Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. He hit a record of 269,154 subscribers during that memorable stream.

Ludwig’s stream was very different from Ninja’s event. He hopped from game to game always entertaining his fans. At one point, he also invited a polygraph examiner to ask him questions on steam creating some entertaining content. A lot of things changed during his month-long-stream.
