    The first streamer I will genuinely watch on TheXvid.
    I'm of the opinion that TheXvid will be live streaming king in the long run anyway..
    I love the twitch community and culture and I think that's what makes the switch so difficult both as a streamer and viewer.

    You keep doing you boss, you're a content beast.

      This. Ludwig streaming on youtube has made me pay more attention to streams on youtube. Ive joined and watch 2 other streams now because of ludwig.

    • Forthewyn Augsburg

      He's literally the 1st streamer I've watched too on YT. However, no matter what, Lud knows he'll always have a home in Twitch to go to if shit goes wrong on YT.

      @TWDC Official and you know that how? I mean all your doing is some empty assumption, you dont know him in person nor do you know what his reasons are

    • Cash Everett

      @TWDC Official Would you do it for money? For a job that you love and care for, would you do it only for the money. If yes, then you are a hypocrite and are flaming him for his decision for something you would do. If no, your lying because from your comments you can tell all you think about is money and you think everybody else should to.

    • vincent lee
      vincent lee 17 days ago

      @TWDC Official no, money isnt the only reason. money was an influence for him bc it would help him get his goals. but youtube, they showed what twitch didnt, which is a desire or even recognition for his accomplishments. they also gave him more resources for him to go bigger, instead of him planning another subathon with twitch

      Blood Junkie Month ago +14

      @Abe yeah no shit but he quite clearly states how Twitch didn't care about keeping him and wanted him to stream way more hours than TheXvid. I never said Lud was a slave or didn't have friends or anything like that I only stated the fact that Twitch's bottom line isn't affected simply by Lud leaving so therefore they don't care enough to actually make an effort to keep him. I didn't mention housing, income, friends, diet or anything like that and it appears you're the one who has no fucking idea what he's on about.

    "twitch never reached out to me"

    Straight up I think the success has gone to Twitch's head. There are so many people who love the site, but I've never heard of the site actually showing appreciation for the creators and steamers that earn them that money. Good on Lud for switching and making that money, and allowing him to focus on more creation rather than padding hours just playing Auto Pets. Good luck buddy

    "If I lose chat, I lose the love I have for streaming..."

    I think...you just helped me realize why I feel so lost and unmotivated when it comes to live streaming. Just want to say thank you, for streaming and making this. It was heartfelt and revolutionary for me. Take care, my imaginary friend...take care....

  • Mr.Wobbles
    Mr.Wobbles Month ago +3850

    After interacting with you and meeting some of your editing team, and getting more involved in watching your content I gotta say…
    You’re going to absolutely murk this platform, (not that you haven’t been already) and although it is quite a bit more lonely I feel like you’ve done so much work on the backend of networking on twitch that those connections will still pull through and hang out with you.
    You’re an extremely entertaining and well-meaning person and I think TheXvid, bigger ideas, more focus on content quality and less of a continuous grind will be an entirely new era. Everything good is scary, you’re going to come out of this with some of the coolest stuff on the internet and I can’t wait to watch!

    • Chris S
      Chris S Month ago

      @Sera it comes from mercenary, yes, but merc, murk & merk have all been accepted spellings of it since early 2000s because in reality it is a unique term, it's not shorthand for a mercenary. If it was the same, the term "merked" would make no sense. Also note how "merced" has ambiguous pronunciation, hence the necessary change to merked/murked.
      Don't be anal about spelling, when you clearly don't understand how the two terms are completely separate linguistically and NEED different spelling in a purely text-based communication medium i.e. internet comments

    "It sounds so selfish"
    dawg I work at Walmart, if Target hit me up and said "We'll pay you a dollar more and someone will acknowledge you exist" I'd leave in a heartbeat. It is not selfish to switch jobs for a place that wants you to work comfortably and WANTS you to stay. That's just smart. If your fans can be on twitch, they can be on TheXvid. You're awesome Lud, I hope I can stream the way you do sometime. Stay awesome!

    • Builderphill

    It's been around two years or so since I started watching you, but time sure flies by, and we get more busy as we grow up, so I'm not really up to date with what's happening on streams.
    You have always been a big inspiration for me and seeing you make such a brave and hard decision is breathtaking, and again - inspiring. I even shed a couple of tears for you.✊🏻
    I think your future on youtube is already secured for you.
    I wish you the best, Lud. Everything will be alright.

From one human to another, we just want to enjoy your content and see you be successful. Don't feel guilty for taking things into account such as money or your success. It's okay to earn a lot of money, you need to get past that guilt you seem to feel for your success.

Happy to support you on this new adventure, best of luck Ludwig.

    7:47 When I heard this, I thought of an old job I had. I loved the field I was in. I was comfortable. Yet one day, I was offered a large salary elsewhere, so I did the same as you and went to both companies regarding the matter. The company I worked hard for for 2 years, repeatedly exceeded expectations, showed up every day, gave my life to, gave me that exact same line. All the while the other company offered me more to get me to consider it. That kicked me in the chest. I had tears in my eyes as I walked out of that office. I was leaving a company where I was recognized as one of their best employees, and they wouldn't even consider asking me to stay. I made the right decision, and I hope this is what's best for you as well. Make them Mogul Moves bro.

      @Exotic Rekt Lemon His youtube videos are primarily edited down vods from twitch. His content fits youtube as a platform more

      @Exotic Rekt Lemon i dont think that makes any sense . because if it was streamed on twitch its more catered to twitch

      Formulate your sentences properly and don't delete taunts in an attempt to play a misunderstood character, it's just a petty act

    Good on you and I respect the decision, although I feel TheXvid only fought for you so they could grow their TheXvid gaming/streaming side. PewDiePie being one of the biggest TheXvidrs, but they didn't really give the respect he should've gotten like when his TheXvid show was canceled. At the end of the day, they're both just huge corporations. Same shit. Talking about the streaming side though, I dislike TheXvid streams (FOR NOW), because almost everything sucks on it. Chat sucks because it always lags, chat culture from YT and Twitch are different, streams are known to lag on YT's end, no gifted subs, no raids, no emotes from other content creators, and no TTV emotes or animated emote. That aside the best thing from TheXvid is a WAY better access to keeping and organizing VODs as well as rewinding a stream WHILE it's live.

    That really hurts hearing that twitch didn't reach out after the subathon. Looking forward to the future big plans. Something i hope youtube works on is the social aspect of streaming on there platform, I.E. Emotes, raids, gifting memberships(subs) ect.

    • MM420

      Gifted subs, raiding (live redirect), are confirmed coming early next year. Drops are also in the works. I've also been hearing rumblings of a TheXvid Premium/Red equivalent of a Twitch Prime but that hasn't yet been confirmed.

    • René Venegas

      The H3 podcast has said that they're working on raids or something like it already, with him and probably other content creators they will be forced to implement such changes faster

    It is honestly amazing how relatable this entire video felt, decisions like these at their core are something everyone will have to experience. I have never felt more in common with another creator on youtube. and I know I'm not your friend but just knowing that regardless of how much money somebody has these types of tough decisions are inevitable.

    I've always watched you from TheXvid ever since the first Button masher vid. I've always wanted to catch a stream but couldn't. I felt like I wasn't supporting enough. But watching your TheXvid vids of you filming everything made me feel so great and happy.
    You don't need to give a reason for wanting to choose a better life. Because..well it's a better life.
    Thank you for always being there whenever I was frustrated after work. I will continue to support your greatness.
    Good luck but I know you you don't need it

      @just a random guy because the interface sucks. Wonder why so many people post streamers vods to YT? Cuz there’s an audience that likes to watch content on TheXvid. The content creator can post TheXvid videos or streams and the audience can find what exactly they’re searching for easily. Clips and vods on twitch are terrible to search through. Things like that make a difference.
