    Hero Making Contest

    Hello and welcome to Wc3Sear.ch's next official contest - the Hero Making Contest! For this contest you will be required to make a totally unique hero using no imported models, skins or icons. Here are the rules:
    1. Create a totally unique hero, using only Blizzard's provided resources.
    2. Submit your hero in a small size map to the Hero Making Contest section of the Spells section of this site.
    3. Only one hero may be created per user.
    4. The hero must be based off of Blizzard's standards - that means it can only have 10 levels, three regular abilities with three levels each, and one ultimate.
    5. You may only use your own resources - nothing from anyone other than yourself.
    6. The map should have a basic terrain and a variety of creeps to test the hero on.
    7. The map must be made in the regular World Editor, no extra editors/add-ons may be used (for example, WE Unlimited may not be used).
    8. Triggered and JASS spells are allowed, but they should be kept neat, you will be judged on neatness.
    9. Your map must have no imported objects - your hero should only be made with Blizzard's resources - NO HERO GLOWS MAY BE IMPORTED.
    10. Make your hero balanced - units will be judged on it. Overpowering heroes will not win.
    11. Your hero must be made solely by yourself - no teams or groups.
    12. The deadline is over - Judging has begun!
    13. The prize is a user title of your choice.
    Judging method is still to be decided, so try and make your hero all around well made.

    Well, what are you waiting for? Get to work!

    Congratulations to ziNv on having his hero - Grannor Stonebeard win the contest!

    If you cant import how can you make a totally new skin?

    I think he means dont use anything made by anyone else. Dont use a skin made by someone else, but are we alot to use downloaded TOOLS from the site to convet and what not. Otherwise it think its impossible....

    1 more thing. Do we have to provide a model or can we use a basic one?

    Boy you guys seem out of your element. :p
    I think he means that we have to make a new hero with only what we have in the Editor already. It's like a hero arena, make your own hero...this'll be fun.

    If We suck as a artist but really want to put a hero up can we do a non-custom model and mostly using a old skin with some changes? I really want to get a custom hero on this but I am like the worst artist in the world.

    Can one of the mods clarify this, so we won't make any guesses and create a wrong entry.

    my dude,

    uhh, ive already made a custom hero with a custom set of spells, and i think he's pretty balanced. this guy is ranked #2 most d/l of spells. i just used a spell breaker for the hero. to me, he's pretty balanced. he's got pretty powerful spells, but they cost a pretty large amounts of mana and he's not that hard to kill... here's the URL, and ill submit the dude.

    Sorry everyone, it was a mistake by me. It's supposed to say hero. I'm sorry for any confusion.

    EDIT: @slipshot: That's fine, can you just resubmit it to the Hero Making Contest category?

    Q: Can I use Beta Patch 405 for this, or do I need to unpatch? I ask because of compatability issues.

    That's a good question. By the time the contest is over the final patch should be released, so as long as its compatible with whatever patch is the highest then it's ok.

    A question, do we have to make everything outselves or are we allowed to use some of the spells in the spell section?

    The spells must be original, that's really the point of the contest.

    How do we prove that our hero is balanced? Do we put creeps in the map or will you copy the hero in to a map to test how balanced it is.
