The undisputed king of subathon
If Ludwig Ahgren’s name is unknown to you, it might be thanks to Spathon that ran for an entire month. By the end of that, the operator managed to break the subscription record of 283,066. He is the content creator who made the most money on Twitch during that time. However, the break does not appear to have occurred on good terms.
In a video posted on YouTube, the operator announces the various reasons why he left his favorite platform, those associated with his name and identity forever. After that, several reasons were put forward: lack of reciprocity and unsuccessful negotiations. Thus he declares: I love Twitch. I really love her. But YouTube made more sense to me ».
He explains that during the negotiations, the contracts offered by Twitch and Youtube were very similar, which primarily led him to continue with Twitch. However, Youtube has shown its drive to take back the streaming device by offering more money for less working hours, as well as better build conditions. On the other hand, Twitch has never shown the slightest sign of association with the creator, even though he has been one of the pillars of the company.
On Twitter, Ludwig fans support him almost 100%, and also condemn Twitch’s treatment of his golden boy, who appears to be closer to ingratitude. The streaming device isn’t the only one leaving the platform, it has succeeded DrLupo or TimTheTatMan who also switched to Youtube.
