Ludwig managed to break Ninja's all-time subscriber count on the last day of his subathon event.
He streamed for 31 days at a stretch while taking only minor breaks in between for rest, food and to use the bathroom.
The streamer does not intend to do another subathon in the future because he does not think it will be as good as the first one.

Ludwig Ahgren saw a meteoric rise in subscribers over the past month and has broken the Tyler “Ninja” Blevins’ all-time subscriber record of 269,154. Ninja achieved the record back in 2018 and Ludwig has managed to break the 280,000-subscriber mark. The streamer has been live on Twitch non-stop for over 30-days and it is not a feat he wants to take on again in the future. He takes time off for food, rest, and bathroom breaks but his stream has been on for over a month. He started his subscriber marathon over a month ago, where every subscription would make the stream 15 seconds longer. He was forced to set a cut-off date else the marathon may have never ended. 

Ludwig’s Response to Breaking Ninja’s Record

Once Ludwig broke the record, he said “There it is! You were here. This is the new record on Twitch for most subscribers of all time. Holy sh*t, that was insane.” He proceeded to comically call Ninja, but it was not actually the popular Fortnite streamer. Ludwig was simply using a soundboard of voice clips by Ninja to make it sound like they were talking. 

Ninja reacted to the achievement saying that he was a little sad, but regardless, congratulated Ludwig on breaking his record.

Ludwig gained a massive number of subs during the last day of his subathon stream after he revealed that he will donate all of the proceeds from the sub money to charity. Ludwig does not intend to do another subathon in the future because he feels it will not be as good as the original. 

He explained on stream “The reason I would never do one again is very simple. And it’s the reason why you shouldn’t make a sequel to the movie The Hangover… It’ll never be as good as the original.” The subathon started on March 14th and it has been 31 days since the day he started the stream. If he did not have a cut-off date for the stream, the subathon could go on for months, if not years.

Ludwig is currently at over 282,000 all-time subscriptions. Aside Ludwig and Ninja, every other content creator on Twitch is below the 200,000 mark. Shroud and RanbooLive are the only two streamers who have ever breached into the 100,000 to 200,000 category.
