Ludwig’s announcement of a second subathon came with the goal of raising money for charity, and, despite going through some tough times on the way there, he raised a total of $300,000.
In less than half of the 50 hours allotted for the Subathon 2.0, Lud managed to shatter his total donation goal, reaching $100,000 in only 21 hours.
Ludwig shatters his $300k Subathon 2.0 goal
With Ludwig’s original subathon having a scale and scope that’s nearly impossible to replicate, the prolific streamer had to find a way to spice things up and make Subathon 2.0 stand out. He decided to host this subathon live at Dreamhack Atlanta, putting himself in a glass box for 50 hours straight.
He set several donation goals and incentives during the stream that have given viewers a reason to donate, ones that have put Lud in various embarrassing situations while he remains in the glass cage.
Through all the trials and tribulation, Ludwig managed to reach his donation goal fast enough that he needed a new one.
