eSports Industry Awards 2016 Winners

Yesterday evening (November 21st 2016), the eSports world had its sights set on awards galore as London played host to the 2016 eSports Industry Awards. David Hollingsworth recaps the evening.
With our very own editor Dom Sacco in attendance, I stayed at home watching the drama unfold on Twitch eating tomato soup with a fresh roll from my local bakery. I’m not bitter of course, I actually like tomato soup.
The awards themselves are a first for the eSports industry – and the event drew  a large crowd on Twitch, with 6,000 concurrent viewers at peak.
The event had 18 categories covering all aspect of the eSports landscape, from best console eSports title to the best journalist. The event was packed with top eSports talent and a host of celebrities from traditional sport and entertainment.
The event was hosted by Jason Bradbury, Julia Hardy and former Rugby player Martin Bayfield.
