Social media reacts to Ludwig's huge announcement

The YouTube star hosted his first-ever Fortnite Invitational tournament on March 29, 2022, which featured a huge number of well-known content creators and streamers present on Twitch and YouTube.

The event was a massive hit, with streamers like Felix "xQc", Imane "Pokimane", Rachell "Valkyrae" and many more participating. Nick "Nmplol's" team ended up dominating the competitive playground of Fortnite, which was followed up by xQc's team.

The YouTube Gaming streamer has changed the formula for the upcoming streamer-only Fortnite Invitational tournament. Instead of featuring a ton of big-named personalities, Ludwig has decided to invite lesser-known content creators who have a following or viewership of less than a thousand people.

No professional players will be allowed to participate in the event. Former participants and gamers were present in the thread where they congratulated the YouTuber on his massive achievement.

A huge number of fans and Twitch streamers, who want to participate in the upcoming tournament, replied to the Twitter thread.

Blaire "QTCinderella" hopped into the conversation and pitched in for her channel's moderator to be considered as a potential participant for the upcoming tournament.

Anne Munition, an FPS gamer and streamer, expressed her inclination to join.

Folks on Reddit were amazed to see how the YouTuber and streamer managed to host such a huge tournament. They applauded his efforts in providing a good proof of concept to their sponsors.

Some Redditors joked and asked to join in.

Some fans questioned whether the streamer would continue to pursue the Super Smash Bros. tournament that he had mentioned in the past.

Some seemed to ponder if the masses would be interested in watching small viewers and content creators competing against themselves.

A few even went on to mention that they are not interested in watching streamers that are unknown to them.

Fans should be on the lookout for the upcoming streamer-only invitational event hosted by the YouTube Gaming star streamer. The final date for the event has not yet been revealed, but it is speculated that the event will kick off on April 18, 2022, which is a Monday.
