    Well, the contest at WildStar Fans starts today. It would be good to see the winners of this forum's contest quick so people don't try for another beta key there if they happen to win one here.

    They chances of someone winning a beta key from these contests are pretty slim. The twitch contest averaged around 1,500 people during each roll. That's a .06% chance to win.

    I assume that they're not going strictly by limerick structure, as several of the ones posted here would not fit, particularly the part about five-line anapestic meter (feet and what-not). Not saying the entries here aren't good (I've loved most of them), but it would be pretty harsh to adhere to strict classical limerick structure.

    Can't wait to see the winners though. Good luck to all who entered. ^_^

    EDIT: Decided to share one (maybe it was my entry, maybe not. I had seven that I liked and can't recall which I sent):

    "There once was a Granok named Sarge,
    Whose hunger for beer was quite large,
    So he picked up Ol' Blue,
    To pop open his brew,
    But wasted it all in a sparge."

    I am not very creative so I only came up with two. I did not submit this one as I thought it was too focused on beta and not enough on WS:


    There once was a gal from Texas
    That truly wanted to explore Nexus
    She really wanted in on the beta
    Not to whine and complain but to provide data
    Choose her limerick and she promises to be conscientious

    I sent this in but everytime I look at it, I want to make changes.

    I can't believe I would go so far
    For a key to get into WildStar
    Be a Draken to honor Dominion
    Kill every single Exile minion
    And intimidate the rest with a RAWR!!

    Then later, I was trying to make another but wound up with a non-lymeric-poem-thingy....

    When I get up, I check my list
    Then I get ready, grab sword with fist
    I'm a Warrior Draken, I slash, I slice.
    When I kill Exiles, I feel nice.
    Explorer, I am, I search the mist.
    Searching and killing, I feel blissed.
    In a party with friends good times are had.
    Dungeons are found with something bad.
    We take out the leader, who is pissed.
    All things are done and so is my list.


    Oh hey, it's a lymeric forwards then backwards.

    I hope accidentally sending mine twice didn't disqualify me :( It's the exact same email from the exact same email address.

    I wrote three and chose one to send. Here are the two that I rejected.

    The Aurin maid held a mirror aloft
    To better admire purple ears so soft
    If only she’d inclined
    To look out behind

    But now she’s a Draken’s velvet hat to be doffed

    The Cassian maid with blonde locks a’flowing
    Appeared in her nightgown with eyes full of knowing
    She caressed his soft head
    And put the little tyke back to bed

    Wait, where did you think this was going?

    I really wanted to use the second one, but if you take out the word 'Cassian' it's just a normal limerick, and I felt there needed to be more Wildstar theme. Hope Carbine agrees.

    I know that feel, bro.

    We'll find out eventually, yeah? Here's hoping some leniency. Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised.

    (I hope they will tell us whether we were disqualified or not.)

    Kept it simple

    Nexus is a wonderful place
    Where cupcakes are even in space
    But the Goats got out
    And rummaged about
    Now with frosting all over their face

    They are picking 13 winners for this competition and 25 for the others, so with 1,500 entries it would be 0.8(6)% and 1.(6)% respectively. The odds of winning more than one are still very sleight, and even if that does happen the winner can just give to someone else or have it redrawn.

    You forget that this is wildstar. 90%(if not more) of those who attempt to get multiple keys will simply either keep a spare/ sell the key off which seems to be going on a lot. And the chances of winning this are much more likely due to a lot of people not willing to put in the effort to be creative/ a large handful wouldn't even be considered due to how poorly they were created. The odds of pulling a key from this competition are so much more likely(assuming you didn't half-ass it).

    So now that the contest is actually over..
    I came up with this one first, but I couldn't make it fit the meter and I think that limericks should be at least slightly suggestive.

    Settler, Soldier, Explorer, and Scientist
    Paths unique to Wildstar are this list.
    Tailored experience for your playstyles,
    Stand and fight or run for miles.
    With a key, I'll be in their midst.


    So this is the one I entered:

    The Medic will melt your guts,
    Or maybe he'll mend your cuts.
    With paddles be probed
    Who cares if you're clothed?
    The Medic can see yer nuts.

    Hey, I've been following the game for a bit and lurking around here for a bit as well, but decided to make an account a few days ago. I wrote five and then picked from those but these were my two favorite, I sent in the first one, I just felt it was more lighthearted/whimsical. But I've seen a few on here that blow mine out of the water :O.

    There resided a Draken most foulest of mood,
    he lived in a cave where he'd sulk and he'd brood,
    he pondered existence, and the exiles resistance,
    then proceeded to hunt them as food.


    The Mordesh are like death but not quite so grim,
    smell of dirt and decay how I'd hate to be them,
    for their minds are obtuse, and they can't reproduce,
    nor can you tell the difference 'tween their women and men.

    The one I decided to submit was short and sweet, and about the general consensus of the stalker... with a twist:

    I was stalking this guy for the longest
    I assumed that Stalker was strongest
    I stealthed up with skill, moved in for the kill
    I died, my assumptions were wrongest

    Tales been told of an Aurin from Galeras
    That all of nexus adored her ass
    But she had a secret, for all to regret
    Because she was in fact, not a lass!

    A Cassian vet named Doc Davies,
    diagnosed an odd Chua with rabies.
    As it foamed at the mouth,
    the creature blurted out:
    "It's not hydrophobia. It's how we make babies!"

    Wow, where did you get these statistics? Can you provide your resources via links in your next post?

    My suggestion would be to look at the crowd you are hanging with and try to add a few more mature players over the age of 13 with integrity.

    I know a lot of gamers and I do not personally know a single one that would sell a beta key or not give an extra key to a friend. Your post comes off as if you are a very negative angry person with a grudge against WS, was this intentional?
