The Lancaster University E-Sports Society Group hosted their first public drop-in and game session on the 7th December 2011 (last week at time of writing) in the newly refurbished Bowland college bar on the Lancaster University campus. This energetic and promising new society took over the social area of the bar and... well just look what they did!
The new bar sports: Dominoes and darts had better up their game.
Anyway, these guys had themselves a little bit of a Starcraft tournament and this is how it turned out.
|Seems like The Terran race reign supreme in Lancaster. Congrats to Tim Seabrook!|
This is just the tip of the iceberg as well by the way. I'm expecting that the replays from all of the above matches to go live (with commentary) on their group page any time soon. Also, they are currently pursuing circuit competitions in not just Starcraft but a whole plethora of other e-sports games to boot. There are matches suitable for the whole range of skill levels.
I'd re-iterate that you will find, as I have, that this group are very well organised and are making impressive efforts to make group gaming a more open and accessible experience without losing their competitive edge because after all, what's a multiplayer game with nobody to play it with?
