01:01, 6th Nov 2009 enjoy: I suggest you add some puffs of clouds, and zoom in. The icon is also overwhelmed by blackness, and should perhaps have glow of some sort. The lightning bolts are going to have to be more detailed when you zoom in, aswell....

    You're getting better by the time. But still, this icon looks quite dumb. The targets look like are standing there, waiting to get shocked. They should be screaming in pain, bending to their knees, or bending back to the ground.
    I guess that's much to ask. Looks good already.

    Hmm maybe you should just make it a 1 unit because it looks strange in icon size.
    and just make it a lightning strike or something. Because i had to get 3cm from the monitor to realize that there are actually units there.

    Maybe you should add like a small lightning explosion around each unit and like make them fall to sides or something like Wham and they're chared or something.

    Would be perfect if it had a passive icon :(
    But nice none-the-less. Useful if you want a different chain lightning icon :)
