YouTube and Twitch streamer Ludwig "Ludwig" Ahgren was cheating several times while playing Among Us to make more "juicy content," he confessed in a recent episode of The Yard.
Ludwig, who has almost 3 million subscribers on YouTube and over 3.1 million on Twitch, said he used to cheat on Among Us, a multiplayer social deduction game, a couple of times to make content:
For content, a couple of times, I had my chat on Emote Only [mode] ... For juicy content, I'd sometimes look at chat and see I would kind of see who they were emoting. There would always be narcs. And then I would guide content that way.
The Twitch star also emphasized that he never cheated on any Among Us tournament:
I promise I didn't cheat in the tournaments.
The popularity of Among Us exploded during the COVID-19 pandemic as countries had to implement lockdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus. According to data from Levvvel, Among Us was downloaded over 320 million times on mobile phones only.
In April, Ludwig interviewed YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki about the controversial decision to hide dislikes and potential support for non-fungible tokens (NFTs). While Wojcicki didn't reveal a timeline for new updates, she admitted that she owns "a few" non-fungible tokens; however, she declined to name collections.
