Ludwig Opens Up About Cheating
For Views
Ludwig didn’t remain a Twitch streamer for long, as he moved to YouTube in 2021 after feeling unappreciated by Twitch. Now, Ludwig has come clean about cheating in “Among Us,” the game that made him so famous in the first place.
Following a lengthy discussion on the recent cheating drama with OTK Schooled, Ludwig shocked everyone by exclaiming, "I used to cheat." Ludwig explained, "For content a couple times ... for juicy content, I would sometimes look at chat."
What Ludwig did was no doubt cheating because viewers knew who the imposter was, as they often watched multiple streams simultaneously. There were always a few chatters who felt the need to let the streamer know who to target.
However, Ludwig clarified that he didn't cheat for a competitive edge. Ludwig said, "But not like 'Let me be the genius' it would be like 'Oh Sykkuno's the imposter? Let me hang out with him all game and then pretend I got super manipulated."
Cohost Aiden pressed the issue further by asking Ludwig if he ever cheated in an "Among Us" tournament, to which he was quick to reply, "No, I was honest in those tournaments." Knowing that Ludwig didn't cheat in "Among Us" tournaments will be a relief to previous participants, as these tournaments often featured serious prize money.
