Looking for what games are played when? You can find the schedule here.
Since Dorans is officially a student sports association, we aim to support players from all games that can be seen as esports. Currently, the games that we have weekly practice sessions for are League of Legends and Rocket League. These are both games that require players to work together very well, and practising with your teammates in the same room on a weekly basis will build up a teams level of teamwork. Besides the games we practice on a weekly basis, we organise LAN-parties and tournaments throughout the year for other games like Super Smash Bros, Hearthstone, or any other game that is popular at that moment.
League of Legends
At Dorans we organize weekly practice sessions for League of Legends. This is done in fixed 5-man teams of similar skill. Any team can apply for coaching as well. The coach will attend most practice sessions and give advice about mechanics positioning, strategy, etc.
We hold practise sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evening from 18:30 to 21:30, in HG00.062 (occasionally switching to HG00.072) in the Huygens building (RU). If you are interested you can stop by at any of these sessions to see if it is something you’d enjoy. We recommend bringing a laptop, which is required in the long term, but we can lend out one laptop every practice session.
Every year is divided into two seasons: Autumn (November – February) and Spring (March – June). Each of these seasons we hold a competition divided into 2-3 pools, depending on the number of teams. The pools are arranged according to the skill level of the teams. The games are played every two weeks in best of 3 format.
Dorans currently has two selection teams for League of Legends, Dorans Vrouwelijk Blauw and Dorans Mannelijk Roze. They are participating in the Dutch College League Premier League, which is regarded as the highest level league among students in The Netherlands.
Super Smash Bros.
Next to League of Legends, Dorans organises a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament every two weeks. These tournaments are open to the public for 5 euro’s and free for members. If you’re considering becoming a member you can check out one tournament for free! The date and the location of these tournaments can be found on our discord.
Since a few years Dorans has added Rocket league to the list of games being played on location. Every week we come together with all kinds of ranks and play some fun matches together. Besides a fun, casual experience you also get the opportunity to train with your team, and even have access to coaches if you desire.
Dorans has recently started an internal competition for Rocket League, based off the League of Legends internal competition that has been running since the beginning of the association. The Rocket League teams battle eachother in weekly matches, to end on top at the end of the season!
Dungeons and Dragons
Since this year, Dorans organizes DnD one shots! People can sign up through the discord server every two weeks to one shots organized by our creative DMs. Every time, there will be different short stories in which everyone can join, from beginner to expert.
Dorans also organizes themed DnD events! Want to celebrate Christmas, Easter or your other favorite holidays together in DnD with your Dorans buddies. Wanna beat the Easter bunny and finish him with your fists? Wanna fireball Santa Claus? Everything is possible in our themed DnD events.
This is the perfect opportunity to connect with people from the association without looking at your screen. Every tuesday Dorans plays board games! Everyone takes their favorite board games with them and we choose what to play on the spot. This can range from long lasting board games like Risk to small fast games like Codenames and Take 5. Bring all your favorites with you and join us for these great casual game nights.
