    Okay I am back home! Spent 1 and a half week without internet and gadgets! My head is so clear gotta listen some dubstep :D

    My ideas are more-less ready ,I start working now!
    To spread out some information, i will have 2 super units instead of one. (But of course they are stronger if they work together.)

    See some really nice entries here, also legendary ones participating. We are standing before a great contest!

    Seeing other's wip screenshots, i realized i will need some building models too xP

    Well here is my first WiP.
    (I haven't come up with a decent background yet. Only the name is present!)

    ----------------------------------
    The Dragon Guard

    A race based on high elves who harness the power of dragons upon their enemies. They use warriors, archers, mages and ... like other races but what makes them unique and interesting is dragons and the strategic possibilities they add to the game. There are different dragon types, with different roles and that's aside from heroes with specific roles.
    More info to be added in a more organized post later.
    ----------------------------------

    Good luck to all contestants.

    So much silence here :p

    I have some bad news for you!

    I started to work on my entry, but after doing it for a few weeks I lost some interest in it. I had other projects to work on so I decided to stop working on it. I am sorry that I have to withdraw, i had an ass kicking idea.

    Good luck for the contestants, I will be here watching :)

    I lost all the info in my laptop due to a unfortunate event...
    Well hopefully I had a backup of my work for the contest, so as soon as I repair my lap I will submit my first wip.

    Just a sneak peak of it:
    my central idea has changed quite a bit, now my super unit is a morphoable building (like elf ancients) it will be encharged of ensambling every single unit in the race, but this will deffer from a summuner unit thanks to a robot part system that I am developing.
    Race is about robots, it uses iron, steel and energy as prime resources and coal aluminium, iron ore and nuclear fuel as secundary resources.

    I will be gathering each contestants entry into one post for the judges, once the contest has ended.

    Good Luck.

    Didnt raise my head for quite a bit here from a simple reason.

    I cant manage to soldiery a single worthy concept into a full techtree, and as such must step back and try again later.
    Maybe if I have a sudden spark, but most likely I would not participate.

    My entry is going good for now. It's entirely based on treants and ancients that utilize spawnable mini-mines (seeds of life, deth etc.) and many vines. My super unit will be a tier-3 ancient with spells that allow him to manipulate the economy of the enemy. For example covering gold mines in roots and agressive vines or corrupting bases which will transfer the gold gathered by enemies to the Ancient's base. He would also leave a trail of seeds that reveal area around themselves and explode when an enemy steps over them. The ultimate of the super unit will be something like a nuke with 3 000 range and 60 seconds cast time that will cover enemy buildings in roots and slowly start to degenerate them eventually destroying them unless repaired.

    p.s. That reminds me, anyone knows how can I set the cooldown of the ultimate if the cast time is interupted ? I want if someone interupts him that the spell goes to cooldown.

    Mr.Bean will be doing some of the spells,testing and balancing so (if he has time ) we will be paired for this contest.

    You can remove the ability and then add it again, if you somehow manage to detect the interrupt successfully. That should reset the coldown of the ability.

    Yes I figured that already but the 'doing' it stuff is harder. Also the detection must detect which player's superunit is casting it so it doesn't do nasty surprises.
