Ludwig's World's Greatest Esports event

There can only be one “GOAT” of video games, and Ludwig is hosting a tournament to crown one king of Esports. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming event.

Ludwig’s passion for esports has resulted in a few ambitious projects with varying success. In 2022, the YouTuber hosted one of the biggest Smash & Melee tournaments with a $1 million prize pool. However, MrBeast’s sponsorship wasn’t enough to turn a profit from the event. Ludwig revealed he lost over $200k on the Smash tournament.

That didn’t dissuade Ludwig from jumping right back into the scene. A few months later, the YouTuber hosted a chessboxing event with contestants facing off in a mix of boxing, chess, and Super Smash Bros Melee. It became the most-watched Smash tournament ever, surpassing even EVO 2019 in views.

Going away from his usual bread and butter of Smash, Ludwig announced a new event to crown the “GOAT” of video games.


What is the World’s Greatest Esports event?

In an effort to hunt down the “GOAT” gamer, Ludwig challenged 16 Esports legends to face off against each other in eight different video games. The two-day event features titles from multiple genres, allowing each gamer to show off their skills.

When is World’s Greatest, and where to watch?

World’s Greatest takes place from September 2-3. Ludwig has yet to confirm a start time for either tournament day. We will provide an update when he provides more information.

All tournament matches will be streamed from Ludwig’s YouTube channel.
