OPL Finale: The Final Contenders
Even if you haven't been keeping up with OPL, make sure you tune in this week as we head towards the final stretch. It's Leagacy vs. Avant Garde on Monday followed by Dire Wolves vs. Chiefs on Tuesday. Which two teams will come out on top to battle at the grand finals?
During the semester break, we decided to hold two events at WangYu Internet Cafe (with a lured pokestop). Now that everyone was out and about, we held a live Friendly Friday event so that the regulars of each friday could meet each other and any new members. We also had a special event for our lovely female members with a Girl's Casual LAN.
You can always view the event recaps here on our website to re-live any of the good times!
UNSW LoLSoc is proudly supported by some amazing sponsors and partners and we want to show them off. Each month, we'll be featuring some amazing products from our sponsors and exclusive deals available to UNSW LoLSoc members only!
This month, check out Gigabyte's new graphics card, the GTX1060!
Gigabyte introduces powerful performance with a budget friendly price tag with its GTX1060 G1 Gaming. Bringing amazing performance and unlocking the ability to play new gen titles, the 1060 G1 Gaming has Gigabyte's GPU gauntlet sorting, meaning that you only receive the best performing GPUs in your card.
The GTX1060 on the pascal architecture also brings all of Nvidia's new features along with it, including features such as the GeForce experience, and Shadowplay to record all your gameplay and amazing moments.
