    Super Unit


    The contestants must create a race centred around a "Super Unit", which can have unique functionalities, or just be super powerful (of course not forgetting balance), etc. The unit can be a hero, unit or building, it is up to you.
    Paired teams are allowed, but not mandatory.



    [​IMG]

    • No submission may violate any of the site rules.
    • If a submission does not follow the map submission rules the creator will be disqualified.
    • Your submission must be posted before the deadline. The post containing your final submission must also contain the following:
      • Several screenshots of race in action.
      • The file in the appropriate format.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that its yours.
    • Your final submission must be bug free enough to test and play.
    • The features that may be edited are:
      • Gameplay constants
      • Game interface
      • Object editor
      • Trigger editor
      • Sound editor
    • The map's terrain may not be edited. The current four melee races may not be edited; copy and paste the default units you are about to edit.
    • Participants must download the (to be provided) template map, edit it and then resubmit it as their entry.
    • Your submission may not be started before the official launch of the contest.

    None yet! If you are interested in judging, please contact me.


    [​IMG]

    Gameplay How fun the gameplay is; does the race itself offer various features to experiment with? /15
    Balance How easily can the race stand against the default races? Is it particularly easy to wipe out or too hard to confront? /10
    The Legion Are the roles of the warriors shared in a flat manner, are they getting too repetitive or each of them plays a unique and significant role in the battlegrounds? /10
    Originality How creative is the idea of your special "Super Unit". Does it have an interesting and fun concept and is the whole race centred around it? /10
    Appearance How does the final output look? Did it achieve to surpass the common appearance that the contestant had to suffer? /10
    Total Score/55

    • 70 % of the winner shall be determined by the contest's appointed judge(s).
    • 30 % of the winner shall be determined by the results of a public poll.


    [​IMG]


    • The contest shall begin on 22nd of July, 2012 and conclude on 22nd of August, 2012 +3 (2012 Event) = 25th of August + 4 (Extension) = 29th of August GMT

    If that damn time-consuming Zephyr allows I'll probably join. My first techtree contest ever, hopefully.

    Thought the arena was frozen?

    Good to see it isn't.

    DO NOTE PEOPLE-this theme is MUCH harder then if first appears to be! just having an uber unit won't do, the entire race should be somehow based around that unit.

    The event has not started yet, how would it be frozen?
    Plus, if it gets frozen, you'll know it ;)

    I hope the entire "frozen arena" thing will be dismissed anyway, why should our own contests be put aside in favor of the event that we don't necessarily going to/want to/capable of participating at.

    People don't seem to be understanding the meaning of the Frozen Arena. :(

    boomwolf, you can still work on your submission in any contest, while the event lasts. Frozen Arena allows the contests to be extended by half for as long as the event lasts, so that people that joined the event have the time to still participate in general contests. It's good for both yourself and the event's entrants. As long as the Arena is frozen, the countdown to the deadline will be slowed down, until it goes out of this state. ;]

    So could I just clarify that? If there are 15 days left until this contest is supposed to end, but then the arena gets Frozen, then when the Legendary Fight is over there are still 15 Days left before the end of this contest?

    So every round will make the deadline even further away?

    That's just making contests last forever, it will lose the aspect of "doing what you can under the time limit"

    And it adds the aspect of "having enough time to make great stuff for both contests" :p

    I'll try this out, count me in!
    Edit :
    Is it allowed to ask some people for the super unit idea?
