We are the home for competitive gaming at UWE and represent it professionally on a national level. The aim is to allow players to improve their skills and build friendships with others while gaining experience in the games of their choosing. Teams will be managed throughout the year to ensure that people with similar goals can compete together, rather than feel forced to stay with the same roster all year long. Of course we aim to accommodate as many games as possible however, it all depends on the interest and the opportunities out there.
To stay up-to-date and to compete please join our society & Discord Server where you will be able to assign yourself to specific game roles and be provided with all the necessary information. If you need any help with settling into Discord or have any questions, don't be afraid to contact a committee member and don't forget to checkout + follow our social media @UWESeaStags!
In our first year as a society we've competed in local, national and european championships and dominated the university counterstrike scene. We were voted as UWE's Society of the Year and as the most improved University by the National Students Esports. "The most improved university was the University of the West of England, who finished in 47th place last season but moved a staggering 41 places to finish in 6th this year." Since then, we have been regarded as one of the major forces in the University Esports scene, claiming 8 national championships in the past 2 years.
Outside of competing in online national tournaments, there are plenty of opportunities to compete in person. Regular Super Smash Bros. tournaments are held with a local company called CannonFodder. In addition, theres always inside society events to get involved in.
We also hosted a LAN event called "SWOLE" that was runner up for the best event of the year at UWE. The "South-West Outstanding LAN Event" was designed to bring universitys from around the south-west together to compete in a two-day tournament and proclaim the "Best of the South-West".
