How is no one talking about best Esports award? I love Overwatch and I played it for countless hours and I know they announced the big OVerwatch Esports League and stuff which will begin soon or just has started. But cmon, its nowhere near CSGO and Dota and I doubt it will ever reach those big numbers, joke of all the awards imo..

How many unfinished games will get awards? This isnt about recognizing achievements, it's about marketing and sales.

@Runeweaver: Thank you, I was just coming in to say that.

I have a feeling that folks like us are going to have to go into a lot of comment sections between now and when this game gets released being all "Um...dudes, it was a book. A much better book."
