I want to give back to the people who make playing on IC fun.
1 - The subject of the poem must be TF2 related
2 - The poem must fit classical structure for the style. IE: No 5-7-4 syllable haikus and calling me a plebeian for not understanding your "advant-garde prose".
3 - Multiple entries are allowed, but only one prize will be given per person.
4 - Entries MUST BE ORIGINAL!
1st - A FREE STEAM GAME! (Up to $50, courtesy of Icrontic)
2nd - Polycount hat of your choice
3rd - Random hat
4th - Refined metal
Worst - Crate (series 3, 4 or 5) with a key
Next LEOI (Wednesday 8 December, 10pm-12am). The poem(s) must be PMed to me, either here or through Steam. To win 1st, you MUST also show up to LEOI and recite the poem(s) in voice chat during the game. Reciting your poem(s) during the game also gives you bonus points towards other places. The winners will be decided that midnight.
For those of you who are terrible at poetry, I suggest searching for an online rhyming dictionary. It will make all the difference.
To get your creative juices flowing, I took 3 minutes to throw something together and get things started. Here is my limerick, expressing my distaste for a certain minigun:
Natasha is quite overpowered,
Around her I become a coward,
But rage as I might
With her people fight,
And my Team Fortress game is soured.
