Just a week after its formation, The UCC Esports team was met with some disappointing news. Due to issues with other colleges, the inter collegiate Overwatch Tournament was cancelled. The team were obviously disappointed, but will be given another opportunity to represent UCC during the summer Overwatch tournament. This left the Rebels’ League of Legends Team as the only remaining UCC team.
Beginning on Monday 25th of February, UCC were given a tough opening game against Trinity College Dublin. Despite being considered huge underdogs, the Rebels were able to claim a huge scalp over Trinity Force, seizing a 2-0 victory with both Darragh Mahon and Dingpeng Ruan putting in stand out performances. A fantastic debut for Netsoc in Irish Collegiate Esports already led other colleges to take note.
The in-form UCC side played again on Tuesday 26th against a strong Ulster University side. Despite a magnificent performance from the UCC side, which included great performances from Patryk Bak and Bernard Grabarczyk, UCC only managed a 1-1 draw.
With 3 games remaining, UCC currently sit in second place in the table, level on points with Ulster University. Results will be widely available on the Irish Collegiate Esports Battlefy page or on the Netsoc Twitter. Check back here in a few weeks for the latest updates on the Netsoc Rebels progress. Up the Rebels!
