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!
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:
