    The First Invasion

    ..."Sargeras gathered his vast Burning Legion and made his way towards the unsuspecting world of Azeroth. The Legion was composed of a million screaming demons, all ripped from the far corners of the universe, and the demons hungered for conquest. (...) Sargeras began his catastrophic invasion of Azeroth. The warrior-demons of the Burning Legion stormed into the world through the Well of Eternity and laid siege to the night elves' sleeping cities..."

    Your city is under attack by the Burning Legion! Knowing the story of the Burning Legion and the abilities of its high grade commanders, create a hero that will help with the defenses of your city!

    Inviting your friends to vote for you, bribing random members with rep and otherwise cheating with the VB poll system will get you disqualified, banned from future contests and neg-repped, depending on the severity of your case. This includes, but is not limited to, sending PMs out to various users, getting other people to send those PMs, advertising this contest on other sites with the intention to gain more votes (whether it is explicitly stated or not), and so on. If you are suspected of cheating, the staff will notify you and interrogate you.

    Additionally, voting for your self is not encouraged, because the vote will not be counted anyway.

    Entries that are valid on the poll doesn't equal immunity; either cheating the poll or being evaluated by the judge that your entry is violating the rules of the contest or the site's in general, automatically puts your entry at risk.

    My name is still misspelled... A slight adjustment would be appreciated. :p

    So does it say anywhere how many votes we get? Or is it just "as many as we want"?

    Thanks, Pharaoh! Sorry to be a bother.

    Yes, which is why, difficult as it may be, I think I will keep my vote down to ~5 max. Top 5 (or 3).

    So... 20 voters, and not a single comment about voting? I wish there was some way to enforce voter comments... I have no idea what I'm doing right (or wrong, as the case may be). Thoughts, anyone?

    I tried all of the entries and noticed that that a lot had ridiculously long tooltips. In a few maps, I died before I even had a chance to finish reading the tooltips. That heavily affected my vote. Another thing I looked for was entries were I didn't start out maxed out already. It can be hard to effectively judge the entries gameplay balance when even your normal attacks can easily take out a whole creep camp single-handedly. Other entries had an annoying habit of throwing the hardest to kill creeps at me first which usually ended in me dying before I even properly tested their abilities. In a few entries I couldn't use some abilities without aggro-ing half the map (slightly exaggerated). In the end I chose juno's hero because I had a proper testing enviroment, I started at level 1, the enemies progressively grew in difficultly making ability testing easy, and the tooltips were simple and straight-forward.

    ^Hopefully my testing environment was alright... I just did a melee map (so regulation-size creep camps), but I included some codes for leveling your hero, remaking it, and placed some dummy enemies on the map. Meh.

    @RedBaron: I realize some people are still voting and writing; that's totally cool. I just mean the 20 people who have already voted without saying much. :p

    That's exactly what I did too :) After all, the hero was supposed to be playable in melee environment, so I added him to all the altars. I also made a few test code for testing purposes, just in case, and noted them on the loading screen.

    Same Same, though changed creep to camp react status, made a lazy win condition and allowed for hero revive depending on money. Hero beginning at level one, with option to level up using xp books. Also able to walk around enemies, test him with items and in conjunction with other units. I compared him directly to normal melee units in order to ensure that he weren't overpowered. :wsmile: From what I have seen so far, many feature that principle, though some have also made a defense the base kind of thing. Many heroes however aren't balanced as melee heroes and are far more powerful, dunno how many have even considered that requirement.

    This is really challenging as there are too many entries, I already tested 5...Some of the entries cannot be saved as there are errors in the script...

    The presentation of the poll is really cool, so credits to Pharaoh_ for being so hardworking on this, but pls guys if you're making a test map
    can you just make it direct to the point, meaning the hero should be availale to use and there are default enemies to cast/test upon,
    coz other test maps, the heroes needs to be trained...ofc it's just my opinion :D...
