    I won't continue this drama ... let me get this out anyway.

    I'm glad that you liked my terrain, even though I am not very talented at it.

    I checked my ultimate's tooltip again since you unsettled me. Anyways, the spell is just perfectly doing what it has to. There's nothing wrong, neither in the spell nor the tooltip.

    I more valued the hero and the spells than the concept of the testing map. Sure, an AoS map would have been better, but I think all (or most..) contestants are too lazy doing that. In challanges like these, there should be a default AoS map where contestants have to implement their hero so that there aren't any problems testing the map, I'd say. (And it would prevent dramas like the one before this post <.<)

    I don't disclaim the testing map to be a failure, but as already mentioned - the ultimate works just perfectly. If you don't want to vote for me then just don't, fine with me. However, you are not the only user to vote here so your "I'm not sure why you would vote for him"-statement is just unnecessary. As Piwlady already mentioned - everyone has his own opinion about which hero he likes most.

    Kinda true. However, since there are many contestants in here, giving the reason why you vote for your favorite probably should be enough.

    Ok.
    I loved the eyecandy. I loved how the spells worked together. I loved the theme. I loved the model choice. I loved the concpet of hero. No leaks, good coding. Good tooltips, tells everything that I want and bit more, no typos, good english. Spells was pretty balanced and original.

    There you go some things why i voted Pharaoh_'s :)

    And because there was two polls, check the old poll http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/recycle-bin-368/hero-contest-3-poll-164848/ for other's reasons of vote if you are interested.

    i think the one that seems to be broken is flame break. and i don't really understand the ultimate. i think it just harms trees? i might be totally wrong, but i'm pretty sure both those spells look like they're supposed to be damaging units, but perhaps only damage units if those units are already under the effect of your spell pyroclasm? is that how it is? kinda weird for two of your other spells to be dependant on another...
    i'll redownload the map just to be sure, so, unless i made a terrible mistake flame break doesn't seem to do anything by itself. which doesn't seem right.

    if that's the case, why don't your tooltips explain the spells properly? ^ ^

    i know pharaoh thinks i'm a bad guy for disliking tooltips when they don't seem to give the proper information, but i think it's a good habit to make sure they do what they're supposed to do, at least. and when you make a map like this...if you want your tooltip to look like that, at least include some in game message instructions or something like that so the tester knows what's up?

    flames of the blood hand worked just fine, but...
    the way you balanced the spell seems not good.
    because as you level it up it gets weaker or from a certain point of view stays about the same...it doesn't get stronger. usually spells get stronger when you level them up.

    "Kinda true. However, since there are many contestants in here, giving the reason why you vote for your favorite probably should be enough. "

    but i hadn't voted for my favorite yet...i'm not even done looking at the code yet. i guess i like to share a lot. obviously i can look offensive when i do that, but really i'm just trying to get you all involved in my testings of the spells, and i would encourage you guys to do the same. it makes the contest feel more alive that way, imo.

    and about the ultimate ability for the wolf...
    could you explain more exactly how to use your ultimate and what it does? because i didn't get it. i'm sorry, maybe the hero was just grossly underpowered and i erroneously thought the spell was supposed to do something more.

    The ultimate spell Thunderous Apocalypse makes 20 of these lightning comets fall off the sky. As soon as they reach the ground, they explode, causing a shockwave which damages enemies (depending on how close they are to the impact point). It is a channeling spell (like flamestrike/starfall) which means if you move, kill or just stop the hero, he will stop casting it. If I'm not mistaken, the spell duration should be 15 seconds and every 0.75 seconds another lightning comet should fall off the sky. Understood?

    thanks for the link.

    and i do agree the eyecandy was interesting. although i think it could've perhaps used some work. but i'm not really one to criticize that sortof thing since i myself suck with graphics. i think it has potential as a hero and that it could use some more refinement. i guess i'd say the same about that other one which was similiar to which you mentioned that you liked but thought was possibly overpowered. i was going to ask you what you thought of it, but followed the link before i posted.

    i'm not sure, but didn't the pharaoh's third skill remove enemy units from the game inside it's aoe? isn't that kindof overpowered?

    but also, i didn't think Pharaoh_'s english was very good in the tooltips. there were errors.

    now to read the rest of that old thread you linked to.

    edit: oh hey, xxdingo93xx, thanks so much for the quick reply. i'll go test it right now.
    edit: yeah...that's about what i thought it was supposed to do...but the problem is...
    when the comets come down...only sometimes do they do any damage...and when they do...it's usually like 10-30 damage or maybe less. but the tooltip says the minimum damage is supposed to be 50. the comets only appear to damage the units about 10 percent of the time when you would think they should, and like i said, the damage is way too low. i added to the esc button press trigger the action to reset cooldowns and make hero level 10 and tested it repeatedly, and always got the same results.
    edit: ok i tested it again, this time in the water...and it seemed to work ok in the water. whenever i tried casting it on land it wouldn't work right...the units that you were attacking with it seemed to be getting healed constantly...

    "but then the SC2 WE finished downloading and I got distracted"
    lol! honesty is more funny than fiction.

    Tooltip for Thunderous Apocalypse
    Makes the Lightning Spirit summon 20 lightning-meteors falling off the sky. When a meteor hits the ground, it causes a shockwave which causes damage to enemies touching it. The nearer the enemies stand to the impact-point, the more damage they receive. The maximal amount of damage they can receive is 50. Also, if the enemies stand near the middle of the impact-point, they have a 50% chance to get stunned for 2 seconds.

    Structures receive damage the same way, however the maximal amount of damage they can receive is 80.

    Watch the tooltip again - it says the maximum amount of damage targets can receive from the missiles is 50. The farer away the targets are from the impact point, the less damage they receive. Probably you're right of saying the spell is too weak ... but in combination with the other spells it is not. With Lightning Curse they can receive an additional amount of damage. In addition, the ultimate spell also triggers the passive spell Lightning Vortex! Anyways, if you think it is underpowered - I made it perfectly configurable, you can change the receivable damage to whatever you wish! ;)
    Btw, did you attack the golems with that spell? They are spell immune, for if you don't know. All of my spells care spell immunity. I tested it and it works just fine. I'll download the submitted version and edit this post later...

    Edit:
    yup, works just fine.

    Why where there 2 polls?

    I checked my spell and it does what it says, the flame break deals damage to units, and the ultimate does, units does not need to be under the effect of something.

    xxdingo93xx, ok, i get it now.
    the grammar was really so hard to read through that it made it hard to notice what words you were using...


    why not change it to oh...

    The Lightning Spirit begins to summon 20 lightning-meteors, falling out of the sky. When a meteor hits the ground, it causes a shockwave which deals damage to enemies it hits. The closer the enemies are to the impact-point, the more damage they receive, up to 50 (80 for Buildings). Enemies at the impact-point have a 50% chance to get stunned for 2 seconds.

    But more than that, this spell does almost no damage if not cast near water.

    i must've not realized that the doomguard is immune to that spell.
    also, i didn't realize you could change the trajectory of the spell by moving your hero. that's actually quite weird. although i guess there isn't necessarily anything wrong with that...

    anyway...if you cast the spell at the bottom of the map, the game crashes.

    and i'm pretty sure the math is wrong in the spell pyroclasm...but oh well. life goes on. btw, the heavy armor trolls take significantly more damage than the medium armor trolls. that's because your spell damage is of magic type, i guess. i just think it's annoying when the tooltips don't seem to be accurate. it's a major turn-off for me.

    i guess you having a healing troll made it hard to realize that the spells were doing damage. at any rate...the math is still messed up. i guess i'm fussing over details.

    now, about the poll...

    if i made a poll, it would ask which of these do you think is the best?
    kala (very classy)
    spencenator (very wacky and fun, and dramatic)
    8Ball777 (ingenius and fun, although probably imbalanced)
    scorpion182 (fascinating)
    Darkyvm (cool and exotic)
    Mephistrial (i know this hero was extremely simple, but it was also extremely fun)
    N1ghthawk (hot and radical)
    NearbyHermit (pure heat, baby)
    Vakama_Lynx (very nicely done, just great)

    these are my favorites, but i'm going to hold my vote for now. but i'm probably going to vote for scorpion182...

    The poll counts 25%, the judges probably have a completely different view than the current votes are putting over and their voting counts 75%.
    Well, I'd love to win this contest but I guess everyone does :p Let's see what this'll be!
