Jonathan “JONATHAN” Amaral, a professional BGMI player and one of the most well-known video game personalities in India, came in second place for the category of “Esports Mobile Player of the Year” at the Esports Awards 2022. Along with Naman “Mortal” Mathur, who uncannily placed second in the category of “Esports Personality of the Year,” he was one of the two Indian creators nominated for this award presentation. The Esports Awards 2022 were held on December 13 at Resorts World in Las Vegas, celebrating players, developers, and talents from the gaming and esports industries in a number of categories. S8UL Esports won the prize for “Content Group of the Year” on this exact day, making history by being the first Indian organisation to take home a prestigious international honour.

At the 2022 Esports Awards, Jonathan almost misses winning “Esports Mobile Player of the Year.”

Despite being added to the list of nominees somewhat late as a wildcard entry alongside Thai professional Free Fire player Piyapon “GODCRUZ” Boonchuay, Jonathan still managed to place second, which is deserving of praise given that this was his first nomination in any category for the award. This triumph merely adds to the allure of everything that has come his way in 2022, including a victory in the top spot in the BGMI player rankings for the year.

Speaking of his career this year, Jonathan managed to show why he is one of the greatest in the game by winning the MVP award for BGMI Masters Series, the first-ever broadcast mobile battle royale competition in the nation, despite BGMI being outlawed by the Indian Government.

Nine mobile esports competitors from various games were nominated in this category:

1. Ceng “Order” Zehai – PUBG Mobile

2. Jonathan “JONATHAN” Amaral – PUBG Mobile/BGMI

3. Luan “Lost” Souza – Free Fire

4. AN “LONG” Xulong – Wild Rift

5. Mohamed “Mohamed Light” Tarek – Clash Royale

6. Cauan “Cauan7” De Silva – Free Fire

7. Sitetempo – Brawl Stars

8. Eman “Emann” Sangco – MLBB

9. Piyapon “GODCRUZ” Boonchuay – Free Fire

The mobile gaming community is eager to watch Jonathan compete once more and have an even stronger run in 2023 since reports say BGMI may return in January of that year. However, it won’t be easy to pull off given that all teams are eager to return and dominate the servers.
