xQc Is Planning His Own Twitch Subathon To Rival Ludwig

XQC

Resident Twitch bad boy Felix "xQc" Lengyel is keen to regain his crown as the king of the streaming service, and is planning his own Twitch Subathon. Just after Ludwig "Ludwig" Ahgren broke records with his 31-day stream and soared past Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' for most paying subs, there's already someone snapping at his heels. Not only is xQc one of Twitch's most divisive characters, but he's also the most-watched in 2021. 

With xQc having his own captive audience, he's ready to host his own Twitch Subathon to eat, sleep, and work out during a 24/7 stream. Ludwig rounded off with a massive final day where he donated a portion of his sub money to charity, meaning it was easy to smash Ninja's record and rise to the top of Twitch. Even though it's been done, the idea of xQc following in Ludwig's footsteps is sure to be a popular one.

 

When is xQc planning a Twitch Subathon?

In a recent stream, xQc explained why he wants to host his own Subathon and cockily said, "We'll beat the record by lunchtime". Despite saying he's planning the Twitch Subathon, xQc warned it won't be anytime soon. Lengyel said he'll wait over a month for the Amazon Prime subscriptions to become available again and cash in on the biggest potential fan base. Basically, xQc thinks a lot of Ludwig's subs used their free Prime subscriptions to make up his numbers. 

Continuing about how his Subathon would be different to Ludwig, xQc added, "To try and make it an easy race, I'm going to put myself one second below his threshold, so it means more". For anyone who didn't tune into Ludwig's epic stream, there was a counter that ticked down toward the stream ending. Every time he had a new sub, the timer was topped up. Things got a little hairy over the course of the month, with the counter even reaching one second before a last-minute save.

Also planning on throwing his money behind the idea, xQc concluded, "I'm gonna hire a couple of guys, I'm gonna prepay them. Whenever we're running low on content, we're going to donate 100 subs and release that fake gift cap. Get that sh*t back up". 

 

Will xQc host his own Twitch Subathon?

By the sounds of it, xQc is serious about trying to topple Ludwig. Considering he's the most-watched streamer, it's easy to imagine him smashing Ludwig's record in a fraction of the time. Then again, he's also an increasingly controversial streamer, and only recently, was kicked off the GTA RP NoPixel Server. Lengyel is never one to hold his tongue, so a mammoth Twitch Subathon is sure to be an entertaining watch.

The question is, who's next for Twitch Subathons? Ludwig has definitely popularised the idea, but imagine even bigger streamers like xQc, Ninja, and Imane "Pokimane" Anys hosting their own. As Twitch clamps down on bots, xQc could do with a few followers right now - especially since he just lost over two million. Ludwig saw his followers soar to 2.7 million after the Subathon and netted an impressive $1 million in donations. Even though he might only walk away with around 6% of that, the long-term monetary boost of his Subathon should be worth it. Watch out Ludwig, xQc has you in his sights.
