    oops, forgot to remove that i was using that becuase i use order id's as opposed to strings for issuing orders.

    @clockwork2 yes i am a fan of starcraft 1

    @wazz, a little over the top? what do you mean by that? too OP, too confusing, what?

    i completely agree with you on the problem of buildings stacking, but i haven't thought of an easy way to do that

    Submission Name: Blood Elf Alliance
    Author: Astaroth Zion

    Additional Comments:Main mechanics:
    -Experience, some units and buildings earn experience in fights, and also little amounts of experience over time when a Trainer is nearby. Upon getting enough experience a unit is level up, upgrading its characteristics, and even unlocking new ones.

    -City Buildings, all buildings spawn every certain time Houses and Basic Towers around them while they are under the cap of these units. This is the only way to increase the food you produce (and by upgrading houses), and also the only way to get defensive towers.

    Highlights:
    -The ability "Target System" from the Steam Tank hero, and from a couple of high levels abilities will cause that most of your units and buildings use an extra attack to damage that unit for the duration of the buff. (You got a purple time counter over the unit to see that). Casted in your base will literally make arrows and magic rain over the target.

    -Steam Tank": his ultimate grants him a auto missile attack against any enemy in sights also it allows him to change to a only anti-air unit. Modifying its factory ability to spawn planes instead of clockwerk goblins.

    -Blood Knight: from level 1 he has the ability to change his whole set of abilities from a Aggressive Hero to a more defensive one. Any point spent in one spec will turn into its counterpart ability. (NO Ability POINTS RE-GAINED)

    one word for your race Astaroth Zion, awesome!

    In depth opinion: i like the main castle, i was disappointed when none of the other buildings had walls,
    i don't like how workers can be trained to militia, it gets really annoying.
    the race can be OP, especially when resources begin running low, build a lot of peasants and then train them to become swordsmen, you can go over the food limit and they only cost 65 gold.

    Is it just me missing something, or did the contest end over a week ago and shitloads of submissions are disqualified for being posted too late?

    I´m glad that you liked my work. I will be returning the favor ASAP and making a good review of your race.

    Over the peasants issue, just around 40% of the peasants trained are upgraded into militia the rest are upgraded into a better tier of peasants (the elf ones)
    In the 2.0 version of my race I added a system that exponentially reduced the chance to train a peasant that will turn into a militia, at most you would get train 11 of them over 40 peasant trained, then the change of getting a peasant that can be upgraded into a militia is 1% or less. HOPE that this new triggers can help reduce the over power upgrade line.

    What do you think about the small building system? I didn`t have time to set the small building locations for every mayor building, so they just pop out in semi random places around the main building.(just maintaining the same distance from the center of the main building and a set angle between them)
    I originally planed to add a wall system to all buildings that makes them untargetable by melee units until they destroyed the door or a section of the wall. (Walls and doors will be reappearing over time just like houses and small towers.)

    If someone else is willing to tell me her/his opinion about my systems they are most than welcome. :wink:

    Interesting... but the no WIPs thing for a contest is kindof a bummer.

    it's the rule that you're not allowed to submit wips as your final entry

    Wazzz Ender is technically right. Since we can't really determine what is and what isn't a WIP (eg. someone may submit a map which everyone thinks is a WIP, but maybe the dude is just really bad at making maps), the rule is just that the map must be playable and bug free to an extent.

    sorry, i didn't understand your phrasing

    I don't mean to sound like the whining impatient person that I am... but when is the poll going to be set up? the judges chosen and their verdict given?
