    Spell Contest
    Win a Sc2 Beta key

    The objective of this spell contest is to create a futuristic type spell which would fit into Starcraft II concept-wise. Once again, the spell needs to be futuristic or tech-like and must be a spell which would fit into Starcraft II. All the placers will receive a beta key for Starcraft II (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) along with some rep.

    There will only be one judge which is me.

    Rules

    • No submission may violate any Hive Workshop site rules.
    • Your submitted spell must follow the theme description. If the judging moderator feels that your spell does not follow the selected theme, then it is his decision to disqualify you.
    • You may use any amount of imported resources in your spell as long as you give proper credit to the creator of the resource.
    • Either GUI or Jass may be used to create your spell; you will not be penalized if you use GUI over Jass.
    • Spells must be at least MPI. You will be marked down for not having a MUI spell. If it's not at least MPI your submission will not be counted.
    • Third party editors may be used in the creation of your spell, but you must clearly state which editor you used to create the map. If a third party editor is necessary to use your spell, add a link, along with your spell submission, to download the editor.

      Examples of third party editors are:
      • World Editor Unlimited
      • JassNewGenPack (or Grimoire)
      • UMSWE
    • Each spell submission must be created during the contest and must be submitted before the contest deadline (noted at the end of this post).
    • You may use utilities that do small jobs for you, but you may not use large systems that do everything.

      Example of utilities
      • CSCache
      • Armor Detection System
      • Local Handle Vars
      • Vector System
      Example of large systems
      • Caster System
      • Particle/Object Engine
      • Knockback Functions
      • Jump System
    • An infraction of any of the rules stated above may result in a disqualification.
    • Judges may not participate in the contest as contestants.
    • Your submission must be created only by you : No team submissions.
    • Completed submissions must be physically attached to this thread in a post.
    • Your last submission will be the considered the final submission, unless if you are previously disqualified from this contest.

    Sounds great. Why the prizes are not equal to the Mini-modelling's contest?

    I'd be able to judge.

    Edit:
    Or on the other site, if I participate as contestant, am I able to use my Missile Engine?

    I'd really like to do this one, but I'm hella busy and otherwise probably wouldn't end up finishing anything anyway. lol

    I might, by some crazy chance, actually manage to participate, even though I haven't Jassed in something like a year or more.

    Umm, welll. Who has? :eek:

    And one thing. Why in judging is
    While in rules is that the spell`s got to be only MPI?
    But in fact it`s not important...

    Just FYI, in the description you noted the spell must be MPI, but in the grading scale you wrote MUI.

    I'm working on my spell right now, cheers.

    It says at least one unit, which means that MPI are acceptable, but will not score the same as MUI ones.

    Could be funny to join, but I already have a key. Maybe I can join just for the lulz, i.e, you don't have to review my submission. If you do then remember to not count me as a real participant.
