    Contestants must create a hero that makes sense in the context of a futuristic world. Such a world is translated with the presence of advanced technology, robotics and/or improved weaponry.




    [​IMG]

    • No submission may violate the Hiveworkshop Rules and Spells Rules.
    • Teams are not allowed; the entire hero must be made by a single user. However, you're able to use any resources publicly available in THW database, except for spells.
    • The hero must have a total of 4 skills. You can use any combination, all passive, all active, three active and one passive, anything, as long as it offers a creative approach to the play style. However, the three of them must be regular, while one of them must be an ultimate, gained at level 6, just like default Warcraft III.
    • The spells can be made using GUI, JASS, vJASS, Zinc or just significant object editor work. One that is not familiar with all of the listed languages cannot be appointed as a judge.
    • All spells must have been made after the start of this contest; no previous work is allowed.
    • You are allowed to use any system, as long as it does enhance the functionality of the spell and it is bug free. For questions regarding this subject, feel free to ask within this thread whether the said system is useable.
    • You're allowed only one submission.
    • Any submission must follow a Work In Progress (WiP), before it is published and labelled as the final piece.

    First Place: 50 reputation points and your entry on an award icon

    Info
    Tell us if you want to judge. Appointed judges must have previous experience in spell-making, familiarity with the Object Editor and Trigger Editor themselves, knowledge of GUI, Jass, vJass, Zinc, in case each of those languages are used in the submissions.


    [​IMG]

    Concept How interesting is the hero to play with? /10
    Coding Is the hero bug and lag free? How well was the coding executed? /10
    Synergy How well do the abilities work with each other? Do they fit with the theme of the hero? /10
    Balance How balanced the hero is? Is it extremely weak to own or extremely hard to face? /10
    Aesthetics How good-looking the hero is? How well their appearance is fitting with the icons? Are the tooltips self-explanatory? /5
    • 70 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 30 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.

    [​IMG]

    The contest shall begin on 11/09/2011 and conclude on 23:59, 12/15/2011, GMT

    In my opinion, it would be good to appoint judges before a contest is launched.

    Or, y'know, set up a roster and a requirement. Ten volunteers if two judges are needed, to make sure atleast two of them are able to judge the submissions when the time comes.

    "Oh sure, just gimme a message if you need me to judge"

    does the additional skill count??
    So, if my hero has 4 skill to be learned, and 2 of the learnable skill are giving 2 additional skill (in total of 4 additional skill)
    So my hero gain total of 6 skill, including the ultimate, and passive

    It's ok, as long as they are not more powerful than the parent abilities.

    The parent is only a dummy learnable skill, the true skill is the 2 additional skill
    So it'll be like this:
    learning skill 1 gives you 2 additional ability
    Learning skill 2 gives you 2 additional ability
    Learning skill 3 gives you no additional ability
    Learning ultimates, gives you no additonal ability

    Almost like morphling from DotA, or even nevermore
    Anyways, i'm joining, i'll recreate the triggered locust swarm..., hehe~

    So science fiction is pretty vague. Would a 'scientifically induced psychic' be allowed?

    Dayum, I definitely must join this one. Don't care if I win or not, just want to make something awesome. I'm thinking something evil and powerful. Magic based of course.

    Edit: I want something sith like, but can't find a fitting model.

    Edit again: Just to make sure, only the hero needs to be sci-fi'ish, rite? I don't have to make robot spells or some shit like that? Something from the Star Wars universe will suffice, yes?

    Depends. Magic doesn't sound futuristic, it sounds fantasy-themed. What do you have in mind?
