If you're reading this right now, you can be sure that you're off to a great start to this university year! To all first-years, welcome to the largest gaming society on campus! You've just made one of the best decisions of your life by joining this community. From endless fun (on and off the Rift) to life-long friends, there are so many great things lying ahead of you. To all upper-years, thank you for returning! We've been missing you over the break!
This year, we want to make our society feel more like a family than ever before. With weekly offline events to increase face-to-face interaction and more active involvement in collegiate and local competitive events, our society will be more active than ever before.
That is why, more than ever this year it is important to keep up-to-date with us! This is our monthly newsletter, published on the 1st of every month. Please stay subscribed and stay tuned!
We kick off with our first event of the year: Launch Party 2017, this Friday, March 3 starting 5pm at the Greenhouse (Village Green). Be there, or be square. We're looking forward to meeting you all!
We officially kick off with Launch Party 2017 THIS FRIDAY (March 3)!
Whether you're new or returning to the society, Launch Party is a great place to start the year with a bang and meet new friends! We'll be playing icebreaker games, trivia and brand new to this year: charades! Semifinals and Finals for our O-Week 1v1 will also be happening live. And of course, as usual, we've got plenty of prizes up for grabs!

Wondering why you received an elemental dragon sticker on your membership card? Wonder no more!
In 2017, UNSW LoLSoc is introducing the Dragon House Cup. Whichever house you were fatefully sorted into upon sign-up, is now your house for the rest of the year! Together with other members of your house, race against the other houses to accumulate points. At regular intervals throughout the year, the house with the leading number of points will receive special rewards and benefits! And, of course, the leading house at the end of the year will take home the Dragon House Cup, grand rewards and eternal glory!
UNSW LoLSoc now has a Wechat group for members to interact with each other and also as a platform to make more friends! You can join the group by scanning the QR code (expires 5th March) or adding Wechat ID: wendyeee and specify you want to join the LoLsoc wechat group. Make sure to tell your friends!
