A rogue, in shadow,watches. The beta key rests,waiting to be claimed.
We’re giving away more Battle for Azeroth beta keys, roguefolk! To win one this time, you’ll need to pickpocket your inner poet.
HOW TO ENTER:
- Head over to the Ravenholdt Discord #announcements channel. You’ll see a post at the bottom of the channel from @GiveawayBot. Click on the emote comment just below it. If the number next to the turns blue, you have completed step one. If not, try again.
- Write a haiku that is in some way related to the WoW rogue class. It can be about your character, or about specific spells, or about the experience of playing a rogue (or playing against one), or about other rogues in WoW lore — there’s a lot of ways you can approach this, so be creative and have fun with it!
- Go to the Ravenholdt Discord #giveaway-submissions channel and post your haiku there. Only one entry per person, please! If you enter multiple times, we’ll only look at the most recent entry.
HOW TO WIN:
Post your haiku to #giveaways-submission by 6 p.m. CDT (7 p.m. on the U.S. East Coast; 4 p.m. on the West Coast) on Saturday, June 16. (That’s 11 p.m. June 16 Greenwich Mean Time.) After the deadline has passed, we’ll announce 15 winners from among all eligible entries — five of you will be selected at random, while the remaining 10 will be doled out based on which haikus are our favorites. (We’re looking for creativity, originality, and good haiku structure!)
We’ll announce the winners (be sure you have notifications turned on), and you’ll have 24 hours to send a PM to @rare to confirm your prize and receive your beta key. If you don’t PM @rare within 24 hours, you’ll forfeit your prize, and we’ll select another winner.
WHAT’S A HAIKU?
It’s a very short poem — just three lines long — in which the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables. The lines don’t rhyme. The Poetry Foundation has a longer explanation (plus some history), and Haiku Poems and Poets highlights lots of great examples. You can also use this syllable counter to help ensure your poem meets the 5-7-5 requirement.
