Recently, The Game Awards 2020 organization has announced a series of titles for games that have a great influence on the gaming community around the world. This is also an annual event honoring the best games, individuals, organizations and events of the year.

Accordingly, the player ShowMaker (DAMWON’s mid laner, the 2020 CKTG champion) received the title of Best E-Sports Athlete of the Year. And Eefje “Sjokz” Depoortere was once again honored as the Best Esports Host.
Although the game village is significantly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, Riot Games still brings the Worlds tournament 2020 as well as constantly updating game content for League of Legends fans. Therefore, it is not difficult to understand when this game received 2 major titles at The Game Awards 2020.
