    Quit spamming the contest thread with arguments.

    As much as you may disagree with what each other are saying, redscores said one thing which no one can deny is right.

    ~Thread cleaned.

    Damn, *would it be allowed if I* send my "spell" via textfile?

    My computer is currently in pieces, and I might not get my hands on a functioning computer with war3 for a few years (unless this upgrade I'm doing on this other computer works properly, but that is very iffy)

    As much as I like wards, it just hit me that there really isn't that many original ward ideas

    Whoop, very sorry. I was just passing through and saw the title Spells and Systems, and thought it was an appropriate place, so I whipped it up.

    Sorry 'bout that, error made in ignorance.

    Thanks for cleaning the thread, PurplePoot. I was beginning to get really tired of that conversation.

    My spell is almost done, but I have some problems... My spell begins to lag heavily when there's no enemy units near it :(. I can't understand why. It makes no sense to me that it should lag when the
    GroupEnumUnitsInRange
    function doesn't pick any units.

    Edit: YAY! I found the problem! It tried to destroy stuff that wasn't created when
    GroupEnumUnitsInRange
    didn't pick any units.

    Click GMT in the first post to have a clock. As Razorbrain said, the bottom of the page also lists the time as of the page being opened.

    GetClosestUnits functions are counted as a utility or a large do-it-for-you systems?

    They don't code your spell for you, do they?

    Therefore they're allowed.

    Basically, the rule means that your spell shouldn't be one or two function calls to an external system.

    I just found this contest and I am joining :D. I guess I'll make a beetle trap or something, it would be nice... I guess.
    No idea what to make cos I also want to join the Zephyr Challenge, which has about the same theme :S

    Traps/Wards are rather different from Delayed Effect...

    I mean, you could have a Trap = a Delayed Effect, but there are far more types of Delayed Effects than just traps.
