Official Blizzard Quote:

' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/12841349/and-the-winners-for-the-blizzard-stream-awards-are%E2%80%A6-2-10-2014'] 2013 Blizzard Stream Awards, powered by Twitch have come to a close and we’d like to thank you, the community, for tuning into Twitch and voting for your favorite Blizzard game streamers.

Blizzard and Twitch established 13 unique award categories representing streamers from four Blizzard franchises (Diablo III, Hearthstone, StarCraft II, and World of Warcraft). Six of these categories were data-driven (example: most number of hours streamed for Blizzard titles in 2013) while the other seven were qualitative categories that were voted on by you, the community (example: favorite community show of 2013). Twitch will distribute a prize pool of approximately $45,000 in prizes that will be distributed evenly to each award category. Here’s a breakdown for how the prizing will be distributed to the winning streamers.

1st place: $2013
2nd place: $400
3rd place: $300
Runners-up: $100

Note: We previously announced that there would be seven data-driven categories of awards. We unfortunately had to drop one of them from the program due to privacy concerns. We have adjusted the award amounts to reflect this.

For more info on the Blizzard Stream Awards, please visit our original blog post here.

We’ve laid out how each data driven awards category was tabulated, provided a full list of award winners, and a list of the runners-up below and on Blog.Twitch.tv.

Apparently most people who watch streams are retarded.

WoW streaming has become like Reality TV. The one with the biggest tits and most brain-dead content wins.

I don't know who 80% of those people are

all I know is Venruki should have won best new streamer, should have had that bracket for each game instead of Starcraft and WoW in one poll

Just curious b/c I don't want streams and have no idea how this stuff works. I know a few people stream for income/$$ but are there any streamers on that list that also hold a full time job?

Why do you promote this garbage? I'm being completely serious. This is arena junkies, and most of us don't give 2 shits about who is the best at selling his or her personality. Most of these guys don't even stream arena at a decent level, reckful included because he doesn't even stream WoW.

If you are going to flood the front page with big distracting text boxes, pictures, and videos, AT LEAST make the articles somehow related to arena.
Yes I heff 3 be mad
