Week 11 - Barbecue. Battleground.

It's Feast Time!

 

Studying isn't easy, and is certainly a process which requires a large amount of concentration that can undeniably tire the unwary individual out. It is suffice to say that being fed in the real world is as important as being fed in league. Luckily, the LoLsoc team will be doing the feeding on Thursday (19 May) and deliver a timely barbecue to leave you satisfied and stress-free.

The online casual 5v5s are continuing this week on Sunday (22 May). We hope you join us once again to enjoy some casual league customs to relieve some stress in preparing for the upcoming finals.

The qualifiers for the inter-university Sydney League of Legends Battlegrounds tournament begins THIS FRIDAY, starting from to May 19th-21st. While we have reached the max team capacity and registrations are now closed, we'll be running some AWESOME PROMOTIONS throughout the week on the UNSW LoLSoc Facebook page, so be sure to keep an eye out!

E-SPORTS NEWS
MSI 2017: Faker Fail Flash?!

"That's Not Even Close" - Jatt
 
MSI 2017 has definitely lived up to its hype this year as top teams from around the world compete for a prize pool of $250,000 and increasing. This past week has had quite a few highlight games and moments that will surely go down in League of Legends history. 

As the tournament progressed through the group stages it quickly became clear that SKT is vastly superior to any other team, as they breezed through each day with multiple stomps. Yet, when the outcome of the tournament seemed fixed in favour of SKT as the audience shift their scrutiny towards contenders for 2nd, 3rd and 4th place finishers, SKT find themselves against their kryptonite, the Flash Wolves that have been struggling through the group stages with irregular and shaky performances.

What is the outcome of this match? Flash Wolves, with a 2-0 record against SKT in MSI 2016, have shown time and again that their unique and aggressive play style is one that can penetrate into the heart of SKT's lineup and dismantle their world class solidarity. However, SKT is looking stronger than ever with the intake the ROX Tigers Peanut and the Immortals Huni, both of which have shown incredible performances domestically this year against top teams such as KT Rolster and Samsung Galaxy. What could have possibly shaken the impeccable Faker into flashing yet another wall?
