Published 04/03/2021, 2:10 PM EDT


Over the years, streaming has come to be more than just playing video games in front of an online audience. Streaming has come to be an online platform for any innovative content that streamers might come up with. Streamers can now be likened to influencers. One of the craziest aspects of streaming is perhaps the bizarre community challenges that streamers take up. A good example would be the popular Twitch streamer Ludwig’s recent “subathon”.

Now, subathon as a concept is not new. The idea is to gain continuous subscriptions while streaming. But some streamers add their own twist to the basic premise and create something really enjoyable. For example, Ludwig’s subathon has been running for over two weeks now.

The rule of his subathon is simple, he streams 20 seconds more for every new subscriber he gets on his channel. Following Ludwig, fellow streamer Mizkif also started a subathon on Twitch. However, his subathon was more of a countdown.

MrBeast plans on launching a “sub attack” on Ludwig’s Twitch subathon

MrBeast is one of the most popular YouTubers and influencers in the world right now. If he calls for an attack of subscribers just to keep Ludwig’s subathon from ending, he might just be successful. However, maintaining a subathon for this long is no doubt a difficult task.

Ludwig replied to MrBeast’s tweet with a GIF of a tensed Pepe the Frog, saying, “M-maybe try getting buried underground for 100 hours or until it’s over.”
