Ludwig officially breaks Ninja’s Twitch subscriber record

Avatar

Published

Ludwig Ahgren has broken Tyler “Ninja” Blevin’s record for the most active Twitch subscribers of all time on the final day of his subathon. 

After 31 days, Ludwig has surpassed 271,000 subscribers, beating Ninja’s impressive count of 269,154. The Fortnite superstar set the record in April 2018 when he played games with rappers Drake and Travis Scott. Ludwig beat the record by hosting a record-breaking subathon unlike anything Twitch has ever seen. 

Ludwig began his subathon on March 14. In just five days of nonstop streaming, Ludwig grew his sub count to 100,000. Every time he got a new subscriber, Ludwig would add 10 seconds to the stream time. This prompted Twitch users to continuously subscribe to keep the timer going. On April 6, Ludwig hit 200,000 subscribers. 

It’s continued strong ever since. Every time the timer would fizzle down, Ludwig’s followers would subscribe to keep it going. At one point he even hit one second and gained a handful of subscribers to keep his stream going for 31 days. That was the cut off Ludwig gave earlier in the subathon. 

Ludwig announced the end of his stream a few days ago. It looks like the streamathon with Ludwig reaching his original goal of beating Ninja’s record. 

More than 135,000 of the subscribers were using their Twitch Prime sub or money to subscribe to the channel. The remainder of the subs were gifted by community members to keep the record-breaking streak going even longer. 

“To Ninja’s record, which in its own right is indomitable because it was done by the masses before the gifts changed the game. One record that will probably never be broken is the amount of Primers he got, the amount of people that showed up,” Ludwig said. “What he did took me streaming every single day of my life, 24 hours a day, with about half the amount of subs I have gifted to my channel.” 

Ludwig added that Ninja was a “professional” while Ludwig himself just “made stupid jokes all day.” During the 31-day stream, Ludwig worked out, hung out with friends, got his hair cut, and performed other mundane activities all while viewers continued to watch his life. 

After beating Ninja’s record, the Twitch professional himself decided to speak on the monumental achievement. On Twitter, Ninja admitted he was “a little sad” at losing the record, but said that “records are meant to be broken.” 

The rest of the streaming community joined Ninja in celebrating Ludwig’s record. From Team Liquid to Neekolul, Twitter was full of words of congratulations for Ludwig. The streamer is now free from being filmed 24/7 and will most likely go back to streaming just a few hours a day. But he has yet to announce what he will be doing now that the subathon is over a month later.

Best moveset for Garchomp in Pokémon Go

Avatar

Published

on

Garchomp is almost always a threat no matter what version of Pokémon you are playing. And in Pokémon Go, it is an absolute monster once you get into the later variants of the Go Battle League. 

Like most Dragon-types in Pokémon Go, the matchup is very important when taking into account when and where you decide to use a Garchomp. The Dragon/Ground-type has a strong movepool, but will still struggle against many top picks in all but the Ultra League. 

Overall, Garchomp is great, with 261 attack, 193 defense, 239 speed, and a Max CP of 4,479 at level 50. You can use it to hit like a truck in PvE, and it is an effective choice in high-level competition. 

You will almost always be using the Dragon Tail/Outrage combo in both PvE and PvP movesets when you need Dragon-type output, purely because it has a max output of 50.2 DPS. Outside of that, Mud Shot should probably replace Dragon Tail as a Quick Move because it can easily build up energy for the costly Outrage and Earthquake combo. 

Fire Blast is a fine tech, but outside of hitting Fairy-types, and being the only option Garchomp has to hit the heavily used Master League mainstay Togekiss, you should just forget it exists since the upside of Outrage/Earthquake, or even Sand Tomb is much better. 

There are better alternatives to Garchomp in every meta, including multiple Legendary Pokémon or Pokémon that have a better typing for specific matchups. For that reason, you should probably not build your team around Garchomp in any league, but it is a fine addition to any squad in Ultra and Master Leagues.

If you don’t already have a Battle League-ready Garchomp, Pokémon Go’s June Community Day will focus on its pre-evolution Gible. You can likely expect Mega Garchomp to be dropping soon too, since Mega Altaria is being added for the Swablu Community Day on May 15.
