Welcome to the 2016 Video Awards!

Welcome to the Video Awards!

Thank you for making 2016 a great year for You’ve shared awesome team fights, payload pushes, and hilarious reactions on our platform. Here are some of our favorites:



Gold Medal

In the right hands, Widowmaker can be a force to be reckoned with! Lmttz shows us how it’s done by single-handedly eliminating ten targets with deadly precision.

Silver Medal

A gentle choir serenades the enemy team as xFSN_Saber secures a devastating pentakill.

Bronze Medal

KSZNE brought a knife to a gun fight – and almost woke the neighbors.


Gold Medal

Riley lends a helping-bullet to a player in need.

Silver Medal

Sometimes, your support needs support. Willykil narrowly escapes falling to his death with the help of his quick-thinking teammates.

Bronze Medal

All we can say is “Wow!” Don’t pick a fight with DeGuN because you may end up in his next montage!


Gold Medal

You can’t carry if you’re dead. If I had teammates like this, I’d be out of Wood League for sure.

Silver Medal

These guys make dribbling look easy as they hop circles around the enemy team. #GlobeTrotters


Gold Medal

Morgana had two wins and two losses in gold promos. Her team was way behind, so the enemy team decided to lend a helping hand.

Silver Medal

When in doubt, you just gotta fire and hope for the best.


Gold Medal

Be Vewy Vewy Qwiet. I’m Hunting Tewowists.

Silver Medal

xSzopen definitely has the “heart of the cards”. With his lucky draw, he’s able to slowly and painfully kill his opponent in one turn.


Gold Medal

When Bandit Thugs get bored, they’ll do just about anything to entertain themselves.
