Ludwig breaks Ninja’s Twitch sub file after streaming for 31 days straight
It took 31 days of continuous streaming, however selection streamer Ludwig Ahgren has lastly damaged the all-time Twitch sub file of 269,154 set by Ninja all the best way again in 2018. “There it’s, you had been right here. That is the brand new file on Twitch,” he introduced to an viewers of over 80,000 simply as his sub rely crossed the brink.
The achievement comes simply as Ludwig is getting ready to wrap up the month-long subathon. It wasn’t imagined to go this lengthy. Ludwig started streaming on March 14 with a easy rule: every sub provides ten seconds to a countdown clock that indicators the tip of the present. That was 4 weeks in the past. Viewers stored the ‘endless stream’ dream alive for a ridiculous period of time, however Ludwig is lastly pulling the plug tonight April 13 at 9 pm PT for some well-needed time away from a webcam. Given the possibility, the subathon may in all probability proceed indefinitely.

For some time, it has appeared as if the unlikely stream was winding down—I mentioned as a lot over two weeks in the past when the timer was at 8 hours. Man, was I hilariously incorrect. To be truthful, Ludwig should’ve been shocked as effectively. He and his mods had already begun planning a finale in case the timer struck zero that weekend. Appears quaint at this level.
I’ve continued to verify in on the subathon since then and have witnessed the stream nearly finish what looks as if a thousand instances. The timer has dropped beneath one minute on a number of events, however viewers all the time chip in with $5 subscriptions within the knick of time, usually including a number of extra hours inside minutes.
For the ultimate day of the stream, Ludwig promised to match every sub with a $5 donation to both St. Jude Kids’s Hospital or the Animal Humane Society. The last-minute enhance helped propel him to the highest of the charts, the place he at the moment ranks as essentially the most subscribed-to streamer proper now and of all time with 273,058 (and rising as I write this).
As he returns to a extra common streaming schedule, I will be curious to see how lengthy Ludwig stays on high. Three years after setting the final file (and leaving Twitch for a Mixer exclusivity deal for some time), TwitchTracker estimates Ninja has round 7,800 energetic subscribers at present. That is nonetheless so much, however removed from his peak. (Not that he wants the cash anymore. Microsoft payed him so much.)
