For the first time in the Esports Awards' five-year history, a mobile category was added to the nominations. This was backed up by the fact that the first three quarters of 2020 saw a rapid growth in mobile esports.

A few days ago, the main event of the awards took place, in which Free Fire, the game published by Garena, was declared winner for the Mobile Game of the Year category from among the eight popular nominees.

Now, the Esports Awards, on its social media, as a tradition, revealed the top three finishers for each award.
