    Rules and Details

    Challenge Arena Rules:

    • No memory leaks are allowed in triggers or scripts.
    • Challenge results must be bug-free.
    • Copy and paste techniques are not permitted.
    • No exports from other games are acceptable.


    Challenge Rules & Conditions:
    • Design a Hero using only object editor data, NO triggers and NO imported data. Simillar to the challenge Kyrbi0 and Direfury had but they were more restricted.
    • One entry per person.
    • No submission may violate the Hiveworkshop Rules and Spells Rules.
    • The hero must be made with only In-Game Resources, which means no Custom Resources (models, textures, icons, etc). Specifically, that means Resources that can be found in War3.mpq, War3x.mpq, War3xlocal.mpq, & War3Patch.mpq. The only exceptions to this rule would be
      • A) A modified version of an existing in-game icon to increase functionality ONLY (i.e. creating a Passive-version, or Autocast-version, or Regular-version, etc); i.e. only Border-change.
      • B) A custom "Hero Glow" model (Chest, Weapon, etc) for use in making Unit models into better-fitting Hero models. PROVIDED HERE by RETERA
      • C) An existing In-Game model, modified to have Dissipate anims instead of Decay.
    • The hero should be balanced qualitatively and quantitatively as if it were a standard hero in standard/ladder WC3 melee games.
    • Your hero must be designed with a max level of 10 in mind.
    • When the hero is complete, submit it to the Challenge thread with the phrase "FINAL" somewhere in the title/post.
    • All submitted entries must use the same test map, which will provided as soon as all participants have accepted the challenge. (Modified as necessary, but not with any drastic changes) (Attached Below)
    • The map you submit your hero in should be set up as a melee map so the hero can be tested in a standard melee game; that means no cinematics or other extraneous additions, aside from:
      • Your custom Hero, it's custom spells, etc (your submission, essentially).
      • Triggers which should be provided to allow a single player to test the hero individually with ease and without having to build an altar and gain experience. (These can be made previously)
      • All submitted entries must have a filename in the format:
        HCH.<MyUserName>.<MyHeroName>.w3x
        Example: HCH.Kyrbi0.Paladin.w3x
      • All submitted entries must have an in-game map name in the format:
        HCH.<MyHeroName>
        Example: HCH.Paladin


    The challenge will begin when all participants have read this post and confirmed that they want to participate, by posting in this thread.
    You have one week to finish your submission.

    I changed some things in the rules since we agreed on something else. The Hero does not need to be a standard melee Hero (but it still can be) and the map won't be a melee map, I've made a template map and I've sent it to everyone.

    Where is it? Isn't this the only post? I already made them. I just put a strike on the stuff that are not true.

    I feel like mine will get the least votes. Also I added test subjects on the map.

    Oh, this looks interesting. I'm keen to see what you guys can create without the use of triggers. Good luck to you all! :D

    But is your body ready? o_O

    I have put some triggers in my map for testing. The triggers are not for my spells, they spawn enemies and set the hero level. Just saying... anyways I'm done!

    THIS IS MY FIRST AND FINAL ENTRY! (attached below)
    [​IMG]

    Edit: After everyone is done I'm going to take some screenshot of every hero and add them to the thread for some extra sexyness.

    Good for you :D I'm still finishing the skill set of mine to make sure there are NO problems. And I placed Player Units and Enemy Units on my map for testing the abilities. :)

    Tested it and nice hero idea. The only skill I'm guessing is the last skill, was that devour magic? Skill Description gave it to me.
    And one of the skills where it said it would hit more than one enemy, well I never saw it, maybe I just didn't wait long enough. And I've looked at your spells, and I didn't expect one or three of them as a base.
