With mobile esports growing rapidly by the day, recognition, intrigue, and acceptance of the esports genre is also increasing. A testament to this statement is the recently-concluded Esports Awards 2020, where the mobile gaming category was added for the first time in the event's five-year history.

Zuxxy and BTR have won the PMCO Global Championship Fall 2019, multiple regional PMCO's and PMPL's (Pro Leagues), and the PUBG Mobile World League 2020 Season Zero East (PMWL 2020). Zuxxy and his twin brother and teammate Luxxy have been nicknamed the Tachibana twins after the popular anime characters from the Captain Tsubasa series.
In his acceptance speech, Zuxxy thanked his parents, teammates, and the staff of Bigetron Esports. He also thanked the fans of BTR for supporting them through thick and thin. Lastly, he hoped that more Indonesian players could come out and represent the country on the global stage regarding esports.
Another popular streamer and Indian esports player nominated alongside Zuxxy was Soul Mortal, who just missed out on the award. There is no doubt he would be happy that a fellow PUBG Mobile player was honored with the prestigious award.
