eSports Awards 2010 announced

May 19th, 2010 11:01

Turtle Entertainment GmbH has announced that the prominent eSports Awards will this year be held at gamescom, in Cologne, Germany.

The annual edition of eSports Awards will, just as last year, be held during the gamescom convention in Cologne. Awards will be handed out for numerous categories, such as eSports Player of the Year, Scene Journalist, and eSports Team of the Year.

Last year's edition of the ceremony saw fnatic ace Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund receive a total of two awards, whereas his team received the prestigious eSports Team of the Year award. 

Although the exact number of awards have not been averred, it is believed that we will see a similiar sum of prizes which was bestowed last year. Nonetheless, gamescom will be held from 18-22nd of August, attracting thousands of spectators. 

Stay locked to our website for further updates regarding the esteemed eSports Awards.

markeloffffffffffffffff !!!!!!!!!
2010-05-19 11:12
markeloff or edzie ! :P
2010-05-19 11:16
Edward the best player, Na`Vi the best team, probably. =]
2010-05-19 11:17
get_right the best player. Fnatic the best team probably =)
2010-05-19 16:43
For 2010 only, I wouldn't agree with you, what I see this year Na`Vi and Edward dominated. :)

it depends a lot on what will happen at the next events (especially ESWC), can't say right now... but markeloff, Edward, gtr and f0rest are my main guesses ofc.
2010-05-19 11:18

gtr? LOL...i think that russian guy dosie or smth is like 3x better...

well, he didnt lead his team to any great titles, whereas f0rest and GeT_RighT made a lot of impact for their team's wins ;]

I LOL'D. Get right is easily top 5 and when he is in a good day he's just the best, same goes with f0rest
2010-05-19 13:07
2010-05-19 14:10
Cus u watched FX vs forZe, and saw how dosia was crushing poles with his amazing 30:6? Tbh fx just S U C K and that's why he did what he did. GTR was in a good shape, but Na'Vi guys will reach a tophy after making a huge step forward in esports.
2010-05-19 15:31
I agree. Dosia is much better than gtr, but his team doesn't help him as much as gtr's does. Edward deserves the prize this year :D
2010-05-19 17:45
Dosia ftw
2010-05-19 11:21
At least it will be easy to find the winner of the coverage award this year, right?!

ofc nomad!!!!!! JK! :D:D
2010-05-19 11:23
ofc , cuz they cover all the e-sport while covers counter strike only.
2010-05-19 11:34
lol, cover? Really? Posting 3 day old CS news, all sourced from us counts as actually doing coverage? We are on-site every time, we provide HLTV and demos, stats and Dreamteam, galleries and videos, what SK is doing is hardly coverage.. Rather do one game properly than 10 games bad..
2010-05-19 11:43
Rofl SK puts your site to shame, no offense but having galleries and short paragraph news posts isn't that much coverage why dont you have Power Rankings, Indepth Interviews, Features, Video Interviews, Playbooks, etc like SK? the only thing you have on SK is just your news posts that is it, as for event coverage they are still far superior but you guys are improving each year who knows!
2010-05-19 12:45
lol.. You are joking right? Right?!
2010-05-19 12:44
lol HLTV is 10 times better than SK hltv has got everything you need, only cfg's are missing
2010-05-19 13:18
Haha you cannot be serious.
2010-05-19 12:47
figures two employess defend it, you have nothing that they dont have and YES during an event their coverage is WAY better than yours, plus they have a bunch of other features besides just news posts
2010-05-19 12:52
if you really want to go into depth about esports coverage, then there's no real site that has great coverage for all games.. hltv is for CS, teamliquid for SC and gosugamers/(i don't play wc3) for wc3..
2010-05-19 12:55
rakaka got everythin, they are swedish though ;P
2010-05-19 14:59
Ok so let me cut it out for you, we had interviews before with hooch and khrystal, we had an analysis of each group, we had video interviews during Arbalet, we had stats during Arbalet, we had analysis of the WMF vs utd case, we had HLTV and POV demos, we had galleries, we had Dreamteam, we had a few highlights of aces, plus we hosted ALL the HLTV, we had updated groups and brackets, stats tied to all POV demos, and our news were out faster than SK's on all occasions, now tell me, exactly where did SK beat us? They might have done a few more video interviews, but no povs, no HLTV, no HLTV demos, no stats, and no galleries.. But whatever, you obviously do not visit during events, so you have no idea what kind of content we actually provide, which makes the discussion pointless, but do not say that SK provides more than we do, it is simply not true.
2010-05-19 12:59
I think you simply won´t win it because you only coverage CS. Also i have to add that you are the best at covering CS.
2010-05-19 13:01
I know we wont win, I don't care, just think it is funny that a site in German can win, but we cannot because we only cover CS, I know what puts the biggest restriction, but we are not doing this to win any awards anyways.. :)
2010-05-19 13:05
Personally i don´t care at all about any other game than CS, so let´s keep it this way :))
2010-05-19 13:13
Don't worry, you will never see other games on than CS! :)
2010-05-19 13:15
if anything it would defeat the purpose of having "HLTV" as the name.

i really f***ing love you! :D
2010-05-19 17:02
Thats exactly why i love HLTV and his crew, and is my favorite page.
2010-05-19 22:52 is clearly the best source for CS news but i do wish there were more interviews with players. I also find that the same players get interviews too often, I've seen a thousand interviews with cArn and GTR but not one with DSN.
2010-05-19 15:24
We try the best we can with the resources we have, but we always strive to improve.. About the same players, then that is often because we go and ask the team for an interview, and they always send the same guy, in some cases because of their knowledge of English, in other cases just because the others don't like to be interviewed I guess, I can try suggesting to Nix he pushes for some other players, but often I guess you'd rather have someone who actually like being interviewed giving it..
2010-05-19 15:30
my clan is better then your clan :)
2010-05-19 16:32
My clan won $2000 in Moscow, beat that! ;)
2010-05-19 19:16
2010-05-19 19:39
Finishing last in the CS competition! ;)
2010-05-19 19:44
Second to last!!!!
2010-05-22 00:48
why do you defend yourself to someone who visits here one time per event.. We all know that is the best coverage site. I think with the videofootage, dreamteam and interviews has even grown in there coverage. Other sites do coverage from other games. Making a website with news about more games doesn't make it a better site. It's all about QUALITY not QUANTITY!!!!
2010-05-19 17:18
agree, also the EPS germany/scandinavia (didnt see scandi yet but was promised they would come) statistics weekly are awesome. THEYRE LATE BTW GET M ON jk :D
2010-05-20 19:59

I think there was a clear statement, that they DO have much more than SK-Gaming, in fact, doesn't have.. If that's not clear to you.. Well, then I don't know what else to say to you :D
2010-05-19 12:59
come on man, sk-gaming sucks big time...
2010-05-19 13:21
Power Rankings, Indepth Interviews, Features, Video Interviews ... Seriously you think power rankings is important on E-sport websites ? What do you mean by that ? the world rankings of cs pro teams ? Indepth Interviews LOL are you even coming on often ? Stop trolling in a stupid way guy, there is plenty of good interviews about players, teams, managers, tournament admins and so on. If by Indepth you mean you want to know the sexual scandals of the esport scene i think you don't really understood what's the e-sport spirit. Features : Omg i'll just say you that is the n1 esport website giving statistics about each pro players in many many tournaments. Then you have few games : the betting system and a new recent one which i think totally seduced esport fans: the dreamteam! The Pov and demo Section exists since have been created and it's the biggest demos storage online at the moment so saying there is no features is just kidding. The last one and the stupidest : video interviews (the one made me laugh my ass off litteraly) OMG just check the 4th last news and you'll see one of the only interviews of Carn after the Arbalet Europe... I hope you understood how stupid was your post, you didnt explore the half of website and you start saying delirious words! Have a nice day sir. Ps : yes i am in the Fan Club because i think it's the most serious website about cs. But the idea of making playbooks would be great.
2010-05-19 13:17
Does this award make sense for ? In my opinion that nothing really matters. everyone knows there's no doubt that hltv is the best site for CS as we need it. In China we have an old saying:Go your own way,let others talk! so,never mind the X,Y,Z@#%$*% awards, hltv has got the CSers' hearts and nothing's better than it,right?
2010-05-19 19:39
Right on.. :)
2010-05-19 19:44
2010-05-19 20:38
WOW one video interview, my point is that they do not do those things ENOUGH, 75% of the content on this site is just news posts, have multiple interviews per week, rank domestic leagues and international overall, analyze the top teams playstyle and tactics at every event, create playbooks or video tutorials of top teams/players, DO SOMETHING OUTSIDE THE BOX, not the same old shit every day, and one video interrrview of a very large event is not enough sorry, and demos do not count as "features" but im glad my post literally made you laugh out loud that is pretty hysterical and speaks volumes about you. And the fact is SK still gets more traffic on their CS articles than this site.
2010-05-20 00:33
I count 6 video-interviews from Arbalet Cup Europe?
2010-05-20 00:30
I highly take over sk-gaming.. I have my reasons
2010-05-19 13:11
Serbia WuLa 
You sir, will get awarded for that post. Honorary award :"Stupidity on a whole new level."
2010-05-19 14:11
ahahahahahh biggest troll comment ever. Im sorry but SK gaming have been really lazy recently with posting news really late, and leaving out some news when they see they are a couple of days late. Not to mention that their user comments are getting worse and worse by the day.
2010-05-19 16:59
my vote for
2010-05-19 13:14
I wouldn't call it covering from their side.
2010-05-19 12:28
TBH i think bot you (Pus) and n0mad got baited so bad by that guy >;O
2010-05-19 22:34

I am actually not sure if the award for best coverage site is in the award-lineup this year. There is no word of it in the news on turtle-entertainment and the eSports-award homepage is not up2date. But what's the point of this award anyway? There are so many projects. Some of them are covering different games, some of them covering only one game.... If I remember correctly there is a user vote? So which site can gather more votes, great! ... Pointless.

Update: I just received the information that there will be an award for best eSports Coverage!

i wonder if markeloff would be considered for like best newcomer (like gux in 09). i mean of course people knew about him before this year and last year, but he definitely is a newcomer to the tip top of the world
2010-05-19 11:22
Dosia & pronax
2010-05-19 11:30
no way mangg its gotta be the delpan or maybe khrystal as he was far from unknown buy at least considered online before 2009
2010-05-22 02:49
2010-05-19 11:35
i am going there :D!
2010-05-19 11:43
Edward or GeT_RiGhT from the already played tournaments (IEM, Arbalet EU, Arbalet BO4, IEM EU) - but i think this will go to Edward because he always plays on another level. Markeloff is good, but an AWP-er does not make as many frags as GTR or Edward
2010-05-19 11:44
I hate those awards in half of the year
2010-05-19 12:03
2010-05-19 13:15
cs player of year maybe GTR or Edward eSports player of the year: Flash, he's been untouchable in Starcraft this year
2010-05-19 12:11
well no :P, jaedong defeated flash earlier this year (controversial, yes)
2010-05-19 12:57
what side can u perfectly see the sc1 scene?
2010-05-19 13:03
true jaedong beat him.. i think MSL finals, thats where its settled lol
2010-05-19 13:18
I agree FlaSh was hands down the best and most regular this past year. The thing is, how much was it influenced by this recent scandal?
2010-05-19 16:18
afaik neither Flash nor Jaedong are involved in the ongoing case..
2010-05-19 16:30
yeah from what ive read neither of them have been implicated, at least from what theyve managed to work out from the 2nd names of the people involved that have been released
2010-05-19 17:33
edward better this year then GTR
2010-05-19 12:37
it s not truth, Edward could be a best player or NaVi best team, but western europe hardly recognize
2010-05-19 12:47
it s not truth, Edward could be a best player or NaVi best team, but western europe hardly recognize it
2010-05-19 12:48
Edward has been good for 2-3 events only so.... no
2010-05-19 12:52
Na Vi has also been stable this year, that's what counts...
2010-05-19 15:39
I think some of the Na`vi guys will take some
2010-05-19 12:46
fnatic the best team(because of stability) f0rest best player, MAYBE edward
2010-05-19 12:53
i'm definitely taking the Scene Journalist award this year :P)
2010-05-19 12:53
In your wet dreams
2010-05-20 00:31
:P it was just wishful thinking anyway :D
2010-05-20 10:01
It's kinda gay to have such a ranking in the middle of the year, but should be interesting enough anyways. It's probably gonna be a CS player named eSports player of the year, simply due to the staggering amount of big LAN tournaments compared to other games.
2010-05-19 12:55
Edward and markeloff =)
2010-05-19 13:02
I don't so many excellent players!
2010-05-19 13:12
Edward :)
2010-05-19 13:52
GeT_RiGhT is the best player in the world and ever.. No one will ever be better then GeT_RiGhT, he is the best player ever at the moment. It's a joke if he doesn't get it!
2010-05-19 13:52
2010-05-19 14:03
i think GTR is way better=\
2010-05-19 17:19
well, then you didn't see the same games I did.

"At least it will be easy to find the winner of the coverage award this year, right?!" What an arrogant person ! Yes, ofc, you guys are faster than sk for posting news scene and provide htlv and so much more. But you have to keep in mind that it's NOT only for cs (Warcraft 3 ? Starcraft 2 ? CSS ? COD ?). That's why i hope that you won't win this award because you simply don't deserve it. Really funny though.
2010-05-19 14:16
I honestly believe my guys are providing the best coverage out there, sure it is only one game, but we sure as hell cover it from top to toe.. Call it arrogant, fine by me, I think we have proven ourselves time and time again.. :)
2010-05-19 14:32
you can be the best even if u only cover 1 game? ...
2010-05-19 15:03
gtr is da best, but i <3 neo :D
2010-05-19 14:18
markeloff - Best player fnatic - Best team
2010-05-19 14:20

2010-05-19 14:24
markeloff or Edward for the best player and Na`Vi for the Best team
2010-05-19 14:27
Neo or Markelof - Best Player Na`Vi - Best Team
2010-05-19 14:34
no more Na`Vi ! fnatic is back ! they will win and ofcourse GeT_RiGhT and markeloff will get the player of the year trophy
2010-05-19 14:42
"Back" where? ESWC, E-Stars Seoul and WCG show us
2010-05-19 14:53
neo.. hahahga
2010-05-19 15:03
Edward definitely deserves the title
2010-05-19 14:52
maybe next year, nobody heard about him and markeloff 3 months ago :)
2010-05-19 17:17
Nobody? Please gtfo troll and talk for yourself. If you didn't know them 3 months ago, it's your ignorance fault then. He and markeloff have been around a long time now, this is not the point here whatsoever. It's the award for the best player of the year, which Edward surely is.
2010-05-19 18:52
maybe you are a f*cking newcommer.
2010-05-19 22:06

2010-05-19 16:34
I was pretty much interested about previous years so I found it and I think there are other people who would like to know it: 2004 - potti 2005 - frod 2006 - f0rest 2007 - neo 2008 - sunde 2009 - get_right Pce :*

Still a lot of tournaments to have their impact on the awards, will be interesting for sure, but honestly it will be between fnatic and Natus Vincere.

Na'Vi will probably take team of the year if they keep playing as they have, unless a team from some other game overshines them (dunno if there is any) dunno about best player could be: Get_right again, Markeloff or Edward i'd say.

I hope that GeT_RiGhT will get it. markeloff and Edward are damn good. but Na'vi has only the big one such as EM. Na'Vi player for awards ? it's still too early for that.
2010-05-20 05:42

2010-05-20 09:25
