Gaining access to the StarCraft II beta and scoring yourself some highly-prized StarCraft swag isn't just for anyone. You needed to prove your strategic credentials. (Or possibly just make us laugh.)
Thanks to Blizzard, one Kotaku reader is going to win the following StarCraft swag:
* StarCraft II Raynor n00bz figure * Starcraft II Marine T-shirt featuring art by Scrojo * StarCraft ‘Frontlines’ Vol. 1 manga from TokyoPop/Madman * StarCraft ‘Ghost Academy’ Vol. 1 manga from TokyoPop/Madman * StarCraft II ‘Terran Ghost’ poster featuring art by Wei Wang * StarCraft II Zergling Coloisonné pin * I <3 StarCraft magnetic bumper sticker
Plus, that one winner and four runners-up will all receive an invite to the StarCraft II beta.

And finally, here is the winner from Yimin, a highly amusing and appropriately meta diagram on what it takes to win, not just the StarCraft II competition, but indeed most every competition on Kotaku. Well done, Yimin!
Thanks to everyone who entered and congratulations to the five winners. I'll be in touch shortly to organise your prizes.
