    Spells & Systems Mini-Contest #19


    Introduction
    The Spells & Systems Contest is more of a fun code learning environment than a contest, due to its low requirements, its short time limit, and its small prize. Each spell must adhere to the theme listed below, and to win, it should be executed well and take the main judging points into consideration.



    Task
    This contest's theme is

    Comedy

    The spell must do something funny yet creative enough to still be viable to use in a serious map. Can be light humor, dark humor, slapstick humor, but not obscene things.


    Rules
    1. All work should be done by the contestant and original to this contest, started after the contest started.
    2. Each contestant is only allowed one submission.
    3. The spell map must be unprotected.
    4. Please post the triggers in
    • tags (JASS in [JASS] tags)
      • 5. Imported material, beyond a dummy model, is strictly forbidden.
      • 6. Spells should support multiple levels, preferably an indefinite amount.
      • 7. The testmap should provide an adequate testing environment for the spell.
      • 8. GUI, JASS, vJass and Zinc are allowed.
      • 9. Third-party tools are supported, but the spell must be playable on Battle.net and editable in World Editor (GUI) or Jass NewGen Pack (vJass).
      • 10. vJass users, you may use other libraries to complement your code, some useful examples:
        • [list][*]TimerUtils[*]UnitIndexer[*]DamageEvent[*]Table[/LIST]
    • If you break the rules, you may be disqualified from the contest, but minor offences (Such as an imported model/icon) will generally be punished simply by the ignoring of them (as if it didn't exist) in the scoring, and a penalty in the related category.[/BOX]
    • [BOX=Entering] [COLOR="silver"]There is no specific required entry method. Just say you wish to enter, or post your spell when it's finished. Whatever works for you.[/COLOR][/BOX]
    • [BOX=Judging]
    • Judging will be as follows:
      • 1. [COLOR="silver"]Idea (5 points)[/COLOR] - Originality and execution of the idea.
      • 2. [COLOR="silver"]Triggering (5 points)[/COLOR] - Make efficient, leakless, simple triggers..
      • 3. [COLOR="silver"]Overall Aspect (5 points)[/COLOR] - Making sure your spell is easy to read (tooltip, comments, logical variable names), as well as having a practical use in-game.
      • 4. [COLOR="silver"]Visual effects (7 points)[/COLOR] - A nice-looking, non-laggy effect. Again, don't use custom models, achieve the effect with native WarCraft III models.
      • 5. [COLOR="silver"]Lulz (8 points)[/COLOR] - Slapstick humor, dry humor, please refrain from obscene humor.
    • [/BOX]
    • [BOX=Prize]
    • A spell can earn a maximum of 30 points. It's simple, the contestant with the most points wins.
    • [COLOR="silver"]The winner's prize will be 10 reputation points, and earn a spot in the "Spells/Systems Hall of Fame" (the list of winners of this contest).[/COLOR][/BOX]
    • [size=3]Contest is now closed :) Congratulations to our winners!

    You should make a notification like it is with all other contests "blablabla has start" :p

    I'm probably in if I have the time. No WIP showing needed? Awesome.

    What about tooltip creators? :p

    Anyway finally a new spellmaking contest. My only problem is the theme since I don't really know what a funny Spell should do (My spells are srs bsnss) But I will try to create a proper one :)

    Even something like a funny little Moogle-type spell that just summons a little squirt that deals a huge, mighty attack would be considered "funny" ;)

    I advise doing some brainstorming to come up with your spell. Write down all the first things that come to mind - remember - when brainstorming, bad ideas are welcome. Come up with a list of like 10 ideas. Some of them might be really bad ideas, but write them down anyway because that gets your creativity stirring. When you have a list of 10, odds are you've got 3-4 decent ideas and from there you can work.

    If I find out that I have some time, I will join.

    Maybe a nice spell will be the mighty croud:
    and I am between: one target ( you call the croud to smash 1 target and targets mixed in this fight ... might have a huge problem)

    no target (the croud runs forward throw low healthed enemies in path, in the air and "I am not sure yet how" somehow dealing damage to other enemy units)
