Ludwig Confirms When His Twitch Subathon Will Finally End

Ludwig Confirms When His Twitch Subathon Will Finally End

If you like watching Ludwig "Ludwig" Ahgren sleep, you'd better make the most of it while you can. The superstar streamer has finally confirmed when his epic Twitch Subathon will come to an end. As our latest streaming sensation, Ludwig's record-breaking stint on Twitch has seen him soar up the charts and even threaten to topple Felix "xQc" Lengyel as the platform's most-watched streamer

Since March 14, Ludwig has been keeping his stream alive and ticking by extending the timer each time someone subscribes. It's been a great way to raise money for himself, with the promise some of his takings will go to charity. Still, it's estimated that Ludwig could walk away with just 0.6% off the overall takings - thanks mainly to Twitch's massive 35% cut. Nothing lasts forever, and with this in mind, Ludwig has confirmed when he'll finally call it a day. Well, sleeping in front of thousands of people must lose its appeal eventually. 

 

When will Ludwig's Twitch Subathon finally end?

While most of us would run out of things to talk about after one day - let alone nearly a month of streaming - Ludwig has found plenty to keep us entertained. During part of his Twitch Subathon, Ludwig confirmed his marathon will officially come to an end on Tuesday, April 13. Added to this, he said that he'll donate some of his final day's proceeds to charity. Explaining why the end is near, Ludwig told his viewers, "April 13th, from noon pacific to nine, the end of the subathon. Subs will not add to the timer, but every single sub, I’ll donate $5 to charity. Straight up". 

All in all, the promise of donating money to charity on his final day means it'll surely be a massive one for Ludwig. Then again, Ludwig claimed he'll actually lose money by donating to charity. Following up the news of the subathon's end, Ludwig added, "Your sub is literally just going to charity through the vehicle known as me, Jeff Bezos’ wallet, and taxes.com. I’ll be losing a f***tonne, but at this point, it’s not about the money, it’s about the record".

 

What else do we know about the end of Ludwig's Twitch subathon?

Even if Ludwig wanted to stream for longer, April 13 will mark his self-imposed 31-day streaming limit. That's 31 days of around-the-clock streaming, where he's only stopped to sleep and use the bathroom facilities. A bit like The Truman Show, we've become glued to our screens as we've watched Ludwig do everything from a workout to getting his hair cut. The popularity of his Twitch subathon has been unrivalled.

Although Ludwig started by adding 100 seconds to the timer for every Tier 3 sub, he had to slash this time in half to make sure it wouldn't run forever. That still hasn't stopped some pretty hairy run-ins where the clock has slipped into dangerous territory. On April 10, it reached just one second left until the subs banded together and kept the timer ticking.

It's been a rollercoaster of a ride. Before Ludwig had streamed 200 hours streamed, he'd hit the milestone of being the most-subbed Twitch streamer with 200,000 active subscribers. This climbed to 242,000 over the weekend and has continued to chug along nicely. At the time of writing, Ludwig has an active sub count of 248,387, which is getting pretty close to Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' 269,154. Even though Ludwig has Ninja's record in his grasp, he's keen to amp up the importance of his charitable causes and promised he'll donate to the Humane Society and St. Jude Children’s Hospital. With Ludwig's Twitch subathon close to its end, all eyes will be on how he rounds off this streaming sprint in style.
