Hearthstone Won The Game Awards 2014 Best Mobile/Handheld Game

The Game Awards announced Hearthstone won the Best Mobile/Handheld Game award. The game was nominated in three categories.

Here’s a rough transcript I gathered from the moment Eric Dodds accepted the award on behalf of Blizzard Entertainment and Team 5. Jump the video timeline to 01:14:32. Eric Dodds accepts the award around 1:20:06.

Geoff Keighley: Congratulations on the win for Hearthstone. Best Mobile Game. We have the award here for you. Great stuff. Congratulations, man. I know that the Blizzard Christmas Party is tonight, so you may have picked to come here tonight. So we really appreciate it. Congratulations. Please, this is your moment.

Eric Dodds: It is an amazing thing when you as a team are working on a game that you love and that you are so excited about it, and you are like: “I don’t know how is it going to be received,” and you put it out there; and it is incredibly humbling when the fans enjoy it like even more than you do. So I’m just incredibly humbled to be here and so thankful that so many people are excited about Hearthstone. It’s amazing. Thank you.”
