UNSW LoLSoc Trivia Night

Huzzah! One of our biggest events of the year recently took place on Friday the 11th of May 2018. We would like to say a huge thanks to all who came to our annual UNSW LoLSoc Trivia Night and participated; It was incredibly rewarding to see so many faces new and old.

 

The evening started with a bang as participants poured into Tyree G16 and comfortably shifted into their places of trios, where some amusing team names were decided upon. As the room buzzed to life with the matchmaking done, the first round of questions began, and our contestants got straight down to work!

Round one was a flurry of ability name questions that left some of our contestants scratching their heads, and others with a light bulb on top. Numerous teams raced to fill their answer sheets as the 30 second timer for each question ticked away in the background, as well as a Vayne montage of our very own Stealthix from Sydney Battlegrounds 2018: Intense!

As the stakes increased with increasingly more points on offer, the teams with outstanding game knowledge made themselves known. On the other hand, those who lacked knowledge used their superb game sense (aka gut feeling) to make up the gap!

 

Many teams took some time to draw a representation of what League meant to them: whether to grab some bonus points or express their inner meme, some of these art pieces left us in stitches!

With the night coming to an end, the top two tied teams battled it out for first place with a game of pictionary. After a grueling duel between team Lochsoc and team GLUPUPUPUPUP, the former came out on top and took 1st place, winning a mystery gift for each of them! The runner-up took home some Poro mugs and a Darius figurine, leaving 3rd place with perhaps the best prize of them all; coaching from some of LoLSoc’s top players!

 The winning team, Lochsoc. Congratulations on coming 1st and winning some handy RP for new skins!

Congratulations to team “Lochsoc”, “GLUPUPUPUPUP” and “The Placidium“ for winning 1st ,2nd and 3rd place respectively! It was hard fought and certainly well deserved.

 

Shout out to our hard-working execs and subcommittee members who put the night together – as well as you guys! It could not have been such a wholesome experience without you all.

 

We sincerely hope you all had a blast at Trivia Night and can’t wait to see you at our next event! Make sure to follow us on social media for more fun events like this:

UNSW LoLSoc Social LAN: Newbie Day

It was an incredibly successful day for Social LAN at Wangyu Cafe on Saturday 28th April from 12pm to 5pm. Thank you to all the members that turned up during the event and enjoyed the chance to pick up some cool tricks from our coaching event.
 

 Look at the cheerful faces of our execs and subcoms. We hope you also left the event with these awesome smiles!

Starting from 12pm, members were already lining up waiting to be allocated a computer to begin their 5 hours of exciting League adventures. Everyone was eager to get into the games and queue up with other members. These games included the customary normals, some custom matches and even the odd ranked games. Hopefully you had a great day and gained some important LP!

 

Besides the casual games though, UNSW LoLSoc was also hosting a coaching event which was greatly received by many members. Many players were able to learn many important tips on how to improve their in-game macro decision making which would be greatly beneficial for their climb for the remainder of the season. A special shoutout must go to Adrian “Morale” Guo & David “ozo1329” Li, our events directors for organising and running this awesome session.

 Time to get down to business! Everyone was busily absorbed in their games.

During the Social Lan, the members of the 2018 Sydney Battlegrounds champion team, ‘Add ozo if u r e-girl’ turned up and enjoyed some casual games with the members. It was great to see all the member and team interaction. Undoubtedly, one of the highlights of the event included our very own Vice President - Operations, Kathy “sexymario258” Xu, challenging the team’s midlaner, Johnny “XternalRageX” Xiao to a 1v1 where she was soundly defeated.

 

 The Sydney Battlegrounds team also made a surprise visit. Here is a picture before our very own Vice President - Operations was beaten in her 1v1 challenge. Look at her smile before it disappeared from that ill-advised challenge.

We hope you enjoyed this event and we can’t wait to see you at our next event! To keep up to date with UNSW LoLSoc please follow us at:

Week 7 Friendly Friday: FF@20

Week 7 Friendly Friday: FF@20

Thank you for all who attended the Friendly Friday event on 20th April 2018 8pm – 10pm.

With an attendance of over 35 players it was a great success as we played to our hearts content with a variety of games including a custom 5v5s, ARAMs and some blind pick games.

There were tons of INTeresting plays which will forever be enshrined in the memories of those who witnessed that glorious moment. There are even rumours that some players may have clipped them to show off to their friends of those "once-in-a-lifetime" plays which would have drawn instant approvals undoubtedly. We hope that you had great fun at the event and perhaps even making some new friends in the process!

Remember to always give feedback if needed and we all hope to see you all later at our next event on the Rift!

2018 UNSW LoLSoc Semester 1 BBQ #1 Recap

2018 UNSW LoLSoc Semester 1 BBQ #1 Recap

April 7th marked our first BBQ of the semester!

The event was held from 11:00am – 3:00pm at the Library Lawn. Whether it was to find new friends, glorious free food, or (for some) finally getting fed, League enthusiasts from all over UNSW came over to have a snag.

 Three keen members enjoying the free food and glorious sunshine.

What was nice was how everybody who came was so keen and outgoing. We had Challenger players talking to new, inexperienced players looking to learn more about the game, and Bronze Execs walking around trying to learn everyone’s names. Many people who I personally knew as the shyer types were beginning to crack out of their shell and were talking to the most extroverted people that you’d find. It really painted the picture that rank is not a prerequisite when it comes to making new friendships

In fact, our turnout was so positive that we actually ran out of snags halfway through the event! Luckily though, we were able to buy more from IGA (I guess we’ll have to keep track of that for our next BBQ). It really was rewarding to see such a positive display of community engagement.

Shout out to the Exec and Events team for organising the BBQ. It was a fun, wholesome time and was a huge opportunity for League Players of any background and skill level to interact!

Also, special thanks to everyone who came! You guys are the reason why we can continue to be a hub for all things League-related 😊
