YouTube gaming guru Rachell “Valkyrae” discussed Ludwig’s Mogul Money Live and applauded Ludwig’s attempts to put on a premier live event.
The co-founder of 100 Thieves commented on the event’s tremendously positive reception and expressed her pride in Ludwig for doing something no other content creator had ever done before: “I’m just really proud of Ludwig. Insane! Like, he’s doing something that no one, no creator has ever… I think this is like the first time… I am talking so much. I forgot already. Oh, my god…”
A customized version of Among Us was played during the entire livestream by Valkyrae and other well-known content creators like Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, Tarik, Ironmouse, and Fuslie.
The Los Angeles native talked about Ludwig and Mogul Money Live while doing tasks in-game. She admitted that she initially misjudged the venue’s size and assumed that the event would take place in a room: “First of all, I didn’t realize Mogul Money was actually going to be that massive. I didn’t. I thought it was going to be like a… like a room full of people. Like I knew there was tickets, but I didn’t realize that it was going to be a stadium! A stadium of people, and it was sold out. Five thousand people. I think that’s what Ludwig said.”
Valkyrae was shocked to see 5,000 people there, since she had anticipated seeing approximately 500 people there: “I thought it was going to be like a room of like maybe five hundred people maximum, but it was five thousand! Five thousand people. And I was looking around the… I guess it would be called a theater. It was like a giant theater room in the stadium. It was super cool, and I was looking around, and I was like, ‘This is five thousand people watching this show IRL?'”
She added that it was simple to forget how many people were watching her Twitch stream: “It kind of put into perspective how many people are watching. Sometimes, you know, like, a lot of people are watching, I have to remember that, and people are coming up and meeting me and asking for photos and being really cute, and you know, being all shaky. But they’re trying to take photos with me. They’re shaking.”
