Introducing DashFight Awards 2022!
Vote for your favorite games, players, and moments of 2022!

DashFight is proud to present the inaugural DashFight Awards 2022, celebrating the best and most influential events, players, and creators in the Fighting Games space of 2022. For a long time, we felt that FGC needed an award ceremony to commemorate greatness achieved throughout the year and encourage players and organizers alike to strive to do even better.

Our jury panel, composed of editorial and content staff members, has selected the nominees and cast their votes. Now is the time for the audience to help decide on the winner of each category. Voting will take place from December 20 to December 26. The winners will be announced on December 30 by some of the most popular and recognizable faces in FGC.

Two of the categories, namely Best content creator of the year and Most anticipated upcoming game, are pure representations of audience opinions and therefore are not voted on by the jury. Winners will be decided purely by the vote results.

The Most anticipated upcoming game award will go to a game that our audience expects to shape the future of FGC. And it’s more than fitting that this category will be presented by the company that shapes the future of fighting game controllers – Hit Box. Their controllers are very coveted and almost always sold out, but one lucky voter will receive a brand-new Hit Box in a giveaway. Everyone who votes on this category and shares their vote on Twitter will automatically enter the raffle. The winner will be randomly picked after the awards ceremony is done on December 30.

  • Tekken 7

  • Street Fighter V

  • Brawlhalla

  • Dragon Ball FighterZ
