    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.

    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.

    13 out of 1300, the lottery has better odds:/ they should have given more keys to these fan sites.
