The winners of the 2021 Tempest Esports Business Awards have been decided! Check out the full list of winners below.

The 2021 Tempest Awards have now concluded! An esports gala night to remember, one that’s highlighted by a panel of industry judges voting on the movers and shakers of the industry. Unlike the Esports Awards, which in some cases is driven by popularity and doing big numbers, the Tempest Awards are purely peer-reviewed and are mostly focused on the business aspect of esports.

That’s not to say there weren’t some fan favorites taking home the W. 100 Thieves, FaZe Clan, XSET, and many more highlighted the awards show. Likewise, it was a big night for Riot Games as both the Valorant Championship Tour and League of Legends World Championship took home wins at the 2021 Tempest Awards.

Esports.gg will be publishing interviews with some of last night’s winners throughout the week and upcoming weekend, but for now, check out the list of winners from the event!
