Welcome to KCL Video Game & eSports Society 2018-19! We are one of the fastest growing societies in the university, dedicated to providing a platform for all at King’s to come together and play or discuss games, both casually and competitively.
In this 2018-19 year we will be upgrading our society!
As our society has constantly grown over the past few years, it has become increasingly difficult to be able to deliver a wide range of events that everybody can enjoy. As a result:
· We are introducing paid membership for the first time this year for a minimal cost of £5 for the year
· Membership to our society will grant you free entry to all our fun and varied events as well as a host of other benefits such as having us host your twitch streams, the ability to enter raffles and win prizes, and to take part in our major eSports events
· To counter the cost, we promise to make our events bigger and better than ever before and welcoming to everyone, no matter what game you play or how well you play.
To give more information about what our society is about, we host a range of events throughout the year:
· Regular games nights/LAN parties for everyone to come together to play games and have fun
· A variety of socials including quiz nights, dinners, trips to arcades and meetups at gaming bars
· Live streams on campus of pro eSports matches as well as visits to some of these matches
· Lots of opportunities to win prizes!
We also provide several opportunities for those interested in eSports:
· University teams for all major eSports games for people of all skill levels
· The opportunity to take part in national tournaments with weekly matches
· Intra-society tournaments – find out who is the best gamer at King’s! (as well as win prizes)
· For our more elite teams, opportunities to take part in major inter-university LAN tournaments
Feel free to contact us with any questions you may have! Equally if you are hoping for any events in particular this year, let us know!
No matter whether you enjoy playing games casually or competitively, you watch eSports as a spectator sport, or simply are new to games and looking for a friendly, safe space to learn in, we welcome everyone to our society so join today!
