Ludwig Ahgren did It
Ludwig Ahgren slept a lot at the end. Ludwig Ahgren exuded fatigue, snuggled in his race car bed with a blanket over his face and something new playing in the bottom corner of his phone. After all, it was just another day in the Twitch subathon of the streamer; he’d been live since March 14th, and there was less than an hour left on the clock. Despite the fact that he was well aware that this had happened before. There was no assurance that the stream would stop if the number was close to zero.
But this time was different because he’d actually achieved the goal he’d set for himself: 31 days of continuous streaming.
Achieved the Most Subscribed Streamer on Twitch
Ludwig Ahgren had been Twitch’s most subscribed streamer since he began his subathon. According to Twitch Tracker, he had 1,730 subs on the 13th, the day before he started his subathon. He had 160,138 by April 1st. The number had risen to 183,191 as of April 4th. He had just under 262,000 by the 13th. He had more than 282,000 subs when the stream finished at 12 a.m. ET on April 14th, with more than 225,000 people watching.
Early on, while Ludwig Ahgren was sleeping, his channel became the most popular on the entire website. With just 38 minutes left on the clock, it didn’t seem that the accolades were worth anything.
Ninja congratulated Ludwig on his achievement on Twitter after hearing about it on Tuesday. Although the streaming star seems to be upset about losing the record to Ludwig, it’s obvious that the two Twitch stars have no animosity.
How it Went?
Though that was still subject to change depending on the whims of his followers, whose numbers had swelled as a result of his viral stunt. Anyone who wanted to donate more than 100 subs to his channel was immediately blocked. Ludwig Ahgren had also said that the stream would end in 31 days regardless of what happened — I believe he knew that if given the chance, the Twitch group would keep him alive indefinitely.
Users were not in agreement that whether he should stay live or should free to go away. The subathon had fallen into the domain of performance art by the time Ludwig Ahgren woke up on April 1st, blinking slowly and taking in his fate. It was clear by the end of the day that he would have to spend another night on the radio. Ludwig Ahgren’s mods were playing a digital marble race on stream with some of the 60,000-plus people in chat on April 2nd, as the clock ticked down from 15 minutes. Ludwig Ahgren slept as a lo-fi remix of Zelda’s Lullaby played on the morning of April 4th, while the timer hovered just under ten minutes.
On the final day, the 13th, Ahgren’s subscription count climbed again as he attempted to break Tyler “Ninja” Blevins’ all-time subscription record of 269,154. The money raised from today’s subs was donated to the Humane Society and St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, while a dollar from each of Ahgren’s first 29 subs went to the charity No Kid Hungry.
Then he went ahead and did it. “Relax! It’s fine now,” he said, as he listened to a speech from a football movie designed to entice his audience. This was the last straw. This was the final chapter. He’d accomplished everything he’d set out to do. He expressed on Twitter.
