    Then don't use TimerUtils and start using an indexed struct system.
    Way better in most situations. And did you notice the "one day" part I added?
    If you're too lazy then I can change it to at least 75% of the finished hero is made by you.
    Happeh noaw?

    Can this contest start soon?

    He's not talking about TimerUtils as an alternative to indexed struct systems - there are some things that are better to do with single timers/impossible or really inefficient to do with indexed structs.

    Pathetic ranting as usual (not saying any part is right or wrong huh). I'm running away from this as we speak D:

    No because you know what?
    People want to join for the fun of it, and guess what some people use GUI...

    I seriously think this is a thing to be discussed outside this thread and away from this contest, make a thread, contact the admins or w/e but this contest was about to start already but this debate seems to be prolonging the starting of it which in fact isn't good for anyone...

    A bit dramatic about this are we?

    Your code should actually be graded more lightly if you are using all the correct and standard scripts.
    TimerUtils is awesome. Use it.

    Ok, we've had enough of discussion and this contest should be approved already. Since each member has a different opinion, can you rephrase the rules, which will hit the final pact? Whatever they are, cause this will take for like ever.

    Well then what the hell should the rules be??? I'm not putting anything on there until we reach some sort of conclusion.

    (By the way ignore my side of the argument because I really don't know and just want to get this thing started)

    Ok, to finish the discussion about large scripts.

    Large systems like entity engines and caster systems should not be used. Small systems like TimerUtils and Knockback systems are allowed, however, 75% of the final product must be made entirely by you.

    Any objections?

    Of course, not! Also the host of the contest has told his opinion already. Those, who don't want to participate due to lack of possibilities, can just leave this topic and don't spoil the process for others. IMO.

    Change 75% to 50%, then it might be more reasonable.

    Either that, or just allow any "Scripts", but limit usage of "Systems". Seriously, I see no reason not to be able to use whatever scripts we want to use...

    50%? Really? It's like the half job is made by you and the rest half by several members that submitted scripts and systems. So, tell me, isn't THIS considered as a teamwork, which is a violation of the rules?

    Amen to that. Lets start this now. We are wasting time arguing. Lets keep it like it is now. If you still can't sleep at night because of the rules, start a thread(after the contest), hold a poll and sort this out. There was a 7 month gap between this contest and the previous one. Let the mods change the hero contest rules. But for this one we are following them as they are, with the exception of knockbacks, ect

    So...if we've finally decided, is this starting now? Or do we still have to wait a bit?

    75% is way to high.

    Scripts I often use in spells:
    AutoIndex - 800 lines
    TimerUtils - 300 lines
    GroupUtils - 250 lines
    ListModule - 150 lines
    LinkedList - 200 lines
    Plus a few more depending on the spell
    =1800+ lines

    So you're telling me I have to write at least 5400 lines for this hero???

    EDIT: Even 50%, 1800 lines is pretty high...

    Orly? I could have easily made a spell within the rules even if it was 100%, no matter what kind of spell I'd made and within the time frame of course.
    Also, xD.Schurke (judge), Xiliger (host) and I (judge) + the majority of the contestants have agreed on at least 75%. xD.Schurke thinks it should be 85% which I think it could be too, but to be nice we have chosen 75% (actually it was like that from the beginning).


    Edit:

    Rofl, you serious?!
    If you're using vJASS which I think you do you could cut out all of those and make it yourself and only have a total of 600 lines for all the spells which is less than the combined length of the systems you wanted to use.
