Hey everyone!

A warm, fuzzy poro... I mean, welcome to new and returning members to UNSW LoLSoc in 2016! Firstly, thank you to everyone who joined us at our stall and events during O-Week. We had a blast!

For those new to our newsletters, we publish one issue at the start of every month, delivered with care to your email inboxes.

This issue is jam-packed, so I'd better let you get started. Don't forget to come to our Launch Party this Friday! See you there!

Braving the heat, Monday was our busiest day of signups. It was wonderful seeing some familiar and new faces join the LoLSoc family.Members also had their destiny tested by drawing a card from a Twisted Fate deck. 

If they were lucky enough to draw the sole gold card from the deck, an official figurine from Riot was theirs to claim. We also held a casual LAN where members were free to come and play or ask advice from our challenger players Nick "Stealthix" and Alex "Cawn Cob". 


Tuesday was all about the 1v1 tournament as everyone was hyped to watch the participants battle it out to win a Gigabyte Brix PC. The players tested their skills in a best of one where victory was decided through either first blood, first tower, or first to slay 100 minions. Big congratulations goes to our winner Alex “Cawn Cob” who came out on top out of the 32 participants.


On Wednesday we held a PC Building Workshop in collaboration with UNSW Computer Enthusiasts Society (PCSoc). The event was a chance for everyone to learn a little more about computing tech and our sponsor Gigabyte was present to generously give out prizes.


On the hottest day of the week with temperatures reaching 40 degrees, we tested the determination of our members with a Scavenger Hunt. Contestants entered in teams or by themselves and were given a map of checkpoints, where at each, there was a challenge ranging from creative impersonations or trivia. For some teams, the event was too hot to handle and they did not make it to end but a massive congratulations go to our winners Lizzy and Chris!


Friday finally rolled around, but despite it being the last day of O Week, our sign ups remained high. A casual LAN was held once again allowing a lucky handful of people to learn a few tips and tricks to up their game. A big thank you to everyone who came by and we hope you enjoyed O-Week as much as we did!



With the beginning of a new year comes a new organising team. This year, the Executives and Directors of UNSW LoLSoc hope to make 2016 a year jam-packed with awesome events that will tie our community together. This would not be possible without our Executive team who organise and structure the society to make sure that everything runs smoothly as well as communicate with everyone. So don't be afraid to drop us a message!

If the Execs form the skeleton of the society then our Directors are the body. From creating amazing art and graphics, photographing our members and writing newsletters, to organising events, updating the website and designing merchandise, our society could not even dream of existing without the help of all our amazing directors who work hard year-round to maintain our society.
