A special award was introduced by the Overwatch League on November 15th. This award is not for players that led their team to victory or for those with the best skills, but for players with the most positive influence over the Overwatch community. It was the Dennis Hawelka Award, for players who lead other players with pleasant energy while being considerate and respecting others, both teammates and opponents alike.
Dennis Hawelka (INTERNETHULK) was one of the main players for Team EnVyUs, the winning team of Overwatch APEX Season 1, and prepared for the 2nd phase of his life as the coach for Team Liquid. He passed away on November 8th, and this award was introduced to commemorate him. He was one of the most beloved gamers, known for his kindness and warmth towards other players, regardless of their teams and nationalities.
Even though he may have left this world at such young age, he will always be remembered as the treasured player of Team EnVyUs, who made an effort inside and outside the game to make Overwatch tournaments a better place for everyone.
