To achieve this prestigious title, Levi and Kiaya had to meet essential criteria, including achieving high rankings in major events such as the League of Legends World Championship, South East Asian Games (SEA Games), and Asian Games (Asiad). Additionally, they needed to secure the first or second position at the National Sports Festival or the National Esports Championship.

The title of “Esports Grandmaster” motivates athletes to maintain dedication in training and inspires them to strive for higher achievements, contributing to Vietnam’s prominence on the international esports stage.

During the event, TK Nguyen, representing GAM Entertainment (Formerly NRG Asia), received a commemorative award as an honored collaborative partner.
