A record amount of gamers voted for the winners this year and there was some intense campaigns from publishers such as Wargaming to win votes from their fans, a strategy that appears to have worked.  Congratulations to all the winners who are now busy popping the champagne corks with a long afternoon of celebrations ahead.
