“We’ll Beat the Record By a Long Shot”- xQc Plans to Overtake Ludwig With His Own Subathon

Published 04/20/2021, 11:26 AM EDT


Twitch saw a new king as Ludwig broke Ninja’s all-time subscriber record following his record-breaking 31-day long subathon. Ludwig amassed 283K subscribers on Twitch as he ended his subathon, and many thought his record is here to stay for a while, save one person. While Ludwig might be the King of Twitch, he is still not the most popular streamer. In terms of average viewers, xQc is still way ahead of him.

Many argue Ludwig’s success, unlike that of Ninja, was the result of a Twitch fad. Just how Ninja rose to popularity due to his content, xQc has also worked hard on his content. The French-Canadian variety streamer has gained a loyal audience playing multiple games, including Among Us, GTA RP, Sea of Thieves, and many more.

xQc currently averages 70-80K live viewers throughout his stream with millions of views on his VOD. Therefore, it wouldn’t be hard for him to break the record Ludwig has set. In fact, during a recent stream, the popular streamer explicitly stated his willingness to do so. Moreover, from his words, it sounds he is pretty serious about dethroning Ludwig.

xQc is going to wait 6 weeks before he starts his own subathon

Félix “xQc” Lengyel is ready to take over Twitch within the next few months. The streamer has a well-thought-out plan to dethrone Ludwig and set a new all-time subscriber record. His idea is to wait till most of Ludwig’s current Twitch Prime subscribers are reset. With people having a free sub, they can then head over to xQc’s channel and subscribe to him.

I’ll do a subathon about a month and a half after Ludwig’s so all the primes are reset, and we’ll beat the record by a long shot. To try to make it into an easier race, I’m going to put mine one second below the threshold he used so that it means more.”

xQc recently lost 2 million followers on Twitch after the streaming platform purged bots from the website. Reacting to the incident, Félix said that the number of followers didn’t matter to him. However, clearly, the number of subscribers does matter to him if he’s willing to go through all this effort and planning.
