National University ESports League

The NUEL is a very popular league among the gamers of CUDGS, with the society running teams throughout multiple seasons. Our most successful team so far has been the Cambridge Dongers, who emerged as the champions of the NUEL Summer Tournament in League of Legends.

StarClash <Still happening?>

StarClash is our series of regular LAN tournaments that we run for all members of the society who are interested. The inaugural StarClash took place on 15th June 2014, with gamers competing in Dota 2, League of Legends and StarCraft II in front of a live audience. For many members this is their first taste of competitive gaming in front of a crowd, and with this in mind we will be hosting bigger and better tournaments in the 2015/2016 academic year.
