After a long month of nominee announcements, community votes, and panel discussions, we’ve come to the last mile of the 2021 Inven Global Awards for League of Legends. Today, Inven Global proudly presents winners from all categories of spellcasters and communities – from the most passionate voices on the desktop to stories that rocked the scene, positively and negatively.
The categories have two awards: the main Inven Global Award is presented by our team of panelists. The Community Award is voted on by fans who engaged with the content and supported those they felt most deserved it.
Without further ado, here are the winners of the Best Caster and Community categories of the Inven Global Awards.
