Pretty sure they said before the 5th, so soon.
I'm just impatient that's all! This is the only chance where i can influence if i get it or not...all others are random, so I'm kinda putting all of my eggs in this basket
I know what you mean, my basket's full of eggs too
I posted my entry earlier, but I figured I'd slap this up here too. This is a reference to the Chua race page. I couldn't figure out how to make it work without implying that Chuas invented the beetles refrenced. They used them, but did not invent them.
Mechari found Chua and taught them more
Genius invetions are what they adore
Not just explosive
but also corrosive.
Beware the tar-beetles of Bezgelor.
Man I check my email constantly and get excited when I see something even in my spam!!!!!!!
Well that would mean yesterday...I never saw a date, but I sure hope it's soon. It's been over a week!
If you look the chat on the main page it says:
Good luck to everyone!
*crosses fingers and hopes by some miracle he wasn't disqualified.*
I was quite generous during judging actually - I read everything and took it on it's merits. Announcement around 1900hrs EST. Maybe some poetry recitals on Twitch too...
Thanks for the clarification, Zap. I really appreciate it (and the mountain of relief).
And so, our winners have been notified. So, I guess you'll want to know what their limericks were? In a minute, my friend, in a minute. First... some stats!
Total Entries: Over 1,300
Short Listed Entries (Chosen by WSC): 64
Winning Entries (Chosen by Carbine): 13
There were everything from multi-verse limericks, actual epic poems, and just flat out begging for beta with no rhyming structure! But, at the end of the day, only 13 walked out victorious. So... without further ado, here's your winning entries (names of winners stripped to preserve their new NDA status!)...
It's the beautiful art he does best
How the Stalker kills without the mess
Claws with nanites to rend you
Stealth and ambushes to end you
Much "wow" in 60 seconds or less.
A Scientist ventured to Nexus
To find new things that perplex us
He searched up and down
And that's when he found
That not enough players have access!
An Aurin girl's presence is calming --
Lady Granok are somewhat alarming --
But I mostly enmesh
With the finest Mordesh
Even if they do smell like embalming
Congratulations! you've met the criteria!
The remedy to your WildStar beta dysphoria!
For just a little fee
You will have your key
See you soon in Nexus, the Prince of Nigeria
Which faction to choose for a minion?
Watched the trailers to form my opinion.
Saw the Exile who rants,
And pissed in her pants.
Screw that! I'm going Dominion.
"Paps" will "Merkal" your team with text
But "Frost" is "Asyreal" as it gets
"Scoot"ing up by the inch
Utilizing the "Clynch"
And against all "Aodz"!!!. . .*disconnects*
There once was a warrior from Gnox,
Who everyday wanted to box,
When told "Use your sword!"
He looked totally floored,
Shouting, "I hit better with rocks."
I once knew a makeshift Mechari
Whose chassis was beat-up and scarry.
Though he looked desolate,
He said, “What?! I look great
For a Chua driving an Atari!"
WildStar streams make me happy
Especially when Frost’s schooling Pappy
While the winner was Frost
He’d have easily lost
If Chad’s keyboard wasn’t so crappy
I was a fool to dream of the Nexus
Even bought the wife a pretty necklace
So she'd leave me alone
And hopefully not groan
While I play WildStar all night till breakfast
A Spellslinger focused on castin'
Won't notice my Stalker assassin,
A few swipes from my blades,
His health quickly fades,
That kid probably thinks that I'm hackin'
There was a young Mordesh Medic
Whose memory, for battlefields, was eidetic
She’d drop a field here
And shove a probe *there*
Then even her enemies couldn’t forget it.
On Nexus I met a fine lass,
And thought that I might make a pass.
So I picked a bouquet,
But to my dismay,
It grew teeth and ate half of my ass.
And THIS one is my favorite! LOL!!!
Congrats on all the entrants, win or lose, great effort
sad i didn't make it, but CONGRATS to all the winners
have fun for me, yah? =)
Could you share the short-listed limericks as well?
Some nice winners there, good job
13 out of 1300, the lottery has better odds:/ they should have given more keys to these fan sites.
Agreed.. I'd love to see the short list as well.
gz to the winners and thanks all for the amusement
