    This is the map me and DesKaladA are working on for the Paired Mapping Contest #2.

    Background
    Once upon a time, Wc3Campaigns' server went down (again). After Tim got it back up (after being on holiday for three weeks, as usual), everything appeared to be back to normal. That is, until Ralle checked his email... it turns out Wc3c booted onto the same IP address as the hive! Oh noes!


    Gameplay
    • This is a multiplayer game that supports 8 players. Players 1-4 are for the hive, and players 5-8 are for wc3c. Players 9 and 10 are computer-controlled players, one for each team. They handle all the miscellaneous stuff.
    • You start out by being presented by a bunch of presents (LOL A PUN). You do not know what's inside. When you click on one present a User from your team will appear. You are in control of that User for 30 seconds, after which point s/he will dissapear and a new User will spawn at your home base.
    • Killing an enemy Generic User (controlled by the computer players) will give the User +10 seconds if they are from wc3c, and +20 seconds if they are from hive (I will explain why later)
    • Killing an enemy Player-owned user will add +(10+(10*level)) seconds.
    • Various items are randomly spawned throughout the map, adding bonuses and time.
    • Generic users are spawned from the site's home base. For the hive they are just peons, for wc3c something else (Haven't decided yet). Because the hive is more active than wc3c, it spawns twice as many users. However because most of hive's (generic) users have an IQ of less than 80, they are far weaker than wc3c's generics. So basically two hive peons are equal to 1 wc3c generic.
    • Minigames! WSC will be utilizing WarSoc, so there are many more exciting possibilities for minigames! These minigames will only last a very short period of time (from 5 - 25 seconds), and winners will be rewarded with bonuses or extra time.


    Now here's where you guys come in! Of course, what would the players control? YOU GUYS OF COURSE! Post here with the following, so I can add you to a table (it is much easier for me and DesKaladA to keep track of people that way). Here's what you post to be added to the map (please wrap it in [noparse] tags so I can just copy and paste it up here instead of having to quote)

    YOUR NAME [c] ICON [c] MODEL [c] ONE SPELL [r]


    Name Icon Model Spell Added?
    Pyritie [​IMG] Bronze Dragon Polarize (a spell from my campaign) Yes
    Deskalada Dark Hunters' Hero Eant reskined for my tastes The book of PWANGE (a spell book filled with random spells) Yes
    Donut3.5 Tinker Tinker Refracting Laser: Shoots off a laser that bounces around, hitting the first target it strikes for damage. Yes
    HINDYhat Kobold Geomancer Kobold Geomancer Shoveler's Rage: The Kobold digs through the ground and reappears Y times at a random position in a Z sized zone around the caster. Each time the shoveler digs out of the the ground, he stomps the ground, slowing all close enemy units and dealing damage. Yes
    WILL THE ALMIGHTY My Shadow Golem Black Hole, please. It doesn't have to suck in units, though... it could always drain mana or slow time around it. Use this for Black Hole. Yes
    UchihaSasuke.gr Thrall Thrall Stinky Smell:Uchi releases a wave of gas that smells really bad,lowering armor of units hit and making them take damage per second. Yes
    HeretoDLstuff Ogre Oger Bellyflop (oger plays death animation on a unit, deals damage and maybe stuns?) Yes
    The_wand_mirror [​IMG] Demon Hunter Morphed (The demon thingy) Sadism - tortures the targeted doing damage to health and giving me double of the hitpoints he looses per torture interval. And when you are tortured you cant do anything back .. just wait or damage me with a spell to escape. Yes
    SuPa- Abomination Model which I will make myself, coming out after christmas Toxic Gas
    Frostwhisper Shadow Hunter Shadow Hunter A totem of fire and water. The shaman summons an immovable totem at a target location. The totem regenerates a % of mana to all nearby friendly units per second. When the totem dies, it creates a fire nova around it, dealing X damage to all enemy units in a certain radius. The totem lasts about 10 seconds or so. Yes
    Kwaliti Spirit Pig Spirit Pig Spirits of the Fallen n00bns: Summons 3 n00bns to aid Kwaliti (low damage, low hp, but they heal) Yes
    FamousPker49 Chaos Blademaster Chaos Blademaster Blademasters Fury- Each consecutive hit will increase attack speed Yes
    Shados Something purple (voidwalker?) purple something Purple spam Yes
    brad.dude03 Troll Troll FLAME! Yes
    Kaitech Crypt Lord Dune Worm Poison Spit - should be like the ability where the Warden throws a dagger, and it slows and takes damage from them, do ya see where I'm going? Yes
    Dr Super Good Archimonde Archimonde Crack JASS: Secretly changes the JASS or VJASS used to power the target WC3C member's spells causing them to have an inverted effect without the person noticing or if used on friendly THW members enhancing their spell power. Basically it will make the target enemy units casts mess up for between 1 and 3 casts causing them to harm their side (damaging spells suddenly target their units when ordered to target a THW member). This spell if targeted on friendly units causes their spells to be stronger for 1-3 casts, dealing more damage or lasting longer ect. An infinante number of units can be affected by this at once but the affects do not stack and the move will have a long cool down to stop it being too strong. Also It must not be noticable that it was cast on a unit so as to supprise them if their abilities malfunction. (This might be of help)
    Mor)L(une Paladin Paladin Hammer of Terraining. Basicly just like impale, but then not stones but trees rocks and shrubs will rise from the ground and impale its target.
    DarkKnight Purple Murloc Purple Murloc "call for allies" wich makes a couple of weak murlocs around him.
    Chriz. Goblin Mortar Trike Goblin Mortar Trike (hero version) Wheelie (activate/deactivate): Morphs into wheelie mode which increases movement speed greatly and leaving a trail of flames behind his wheels which deal damage over time to units who walk on them. When in wheelie mode attack speed is decreased drastically.
    HappyTauren Tauren Tauren (tinted green) Holy Shit: Creates a ward which spreads plague amongst nearby enemies. If enemy dies under this spell, a Toxic Minion will arise from its body.
    THE_END My Blood Mage skin Ability- Venom of the Deep, gives damage bonus and Slow Poison effect to attacks
    General Frank [​IMG] (portrait #2) Model Duty of Honor - All units in a medium range around the caster get higher attack, speed, defence and regeneration. Spell's strength depends on the current mana of the caster, so it's maximum bonus would be +100%. Needs a long casting and cool down time.
    Elenai link link link
    Cavman [​IMG] (supplied) TheCavman(supplied) Angry Stick: Temporarily increases the melee attack power and attack rate.
    MySpaceBarBroke Fire(pandaren) Fire(Pandaren) Sarcasm Aura: A strong thorns aura that needs to be activated and drains caster's mana over time.
    1)ark_NiTe [​IMG] Death Knight /Squelch: Stops the enemy from casting spells for a short amount of time.
    Iristle Faerie Dragon Faerie Dragon Mind bomb: The user attacks the target with a disruptive wave which causes the owner to lose control of the unit for 5 seconds.
    Samuraid Icon Model Stealth: Allows temp invisibility, Attack with a critical strike on reappearing
    LiOneSS Lioness Lioness the spell... nah something like.. bit-rain instead of starfall :D
    GreyArchon This Shade + Frost Shield buff graphic. Terraining. Drastically raises or lowers the terrain. If a unit is on the peak of the raised terrain when it reaches it's highest point, they freeze. (dummy frost nova) If a unit is on the bottom of the lowered terrain when it reaches it's lowest point, they burn. (dummy Flamestrike)
    Rizz Boomer icon Model Chainreaction: Hurls a Bomb, wich damages an area (friend and foe) and jumps to random point within 250 to explode again. jumps 2 times explodes 3 times.
    Lord_T Grunt Early V. of my GruntMolisher LagSpike!!: AoE damage, slowing all in the AOE for 5 seconds... (based on impale)
    Gilles Wildkin Wildkin Chance to increase attack speed by 200% (if 200 looks lame go with 100) on hit for 10 seconds or four hits!?!


    Users who do not want their name in the map at all
    Mini-Me, Rao Dao Zao


    Powers of units will vary depending on how important they are to the site. For example Ralle and Tim. will totally OMGWTFPEWPEWLAZERZ everything, whereas someone like Flame_Phoenix might be able to pick off one or two wc3c generic users before his timer runs out.

    Also keep in mind your model should reflect you in some way. So for example General Frank could use one of his draconian models. Also, YOUR CHOSEN MODEL/ICON MUST BE EITHER INGAME OR MADE BY YOURSELF. MODEL SIZE IS LIMITED TO 80KB, INCLUDING ANY CUSTOM TEXTURES.
    If you contribute to both wc3c AND the hive, then post on this identical thread there too. (This is for people like Chriz)

    Not everyone will be accepted; only those users who me and DesKaladA feel that they contribute to the site.

    And if you're wondering "Pyritie, don't you have a campaign you should be working on?", then here's my explanation: at the moment I'm basically waiting for other people to finish my spells, animations, voice acting, etc. So there's not much I can do on it.

    I demand Dan Van Ohlus be in this, using none other than the Dan Van Ohlus model! Someone notify him immediately! Rar!

    On a side note... this is the greatest idea for a map ever. I know my only project on here is the essentially-abandoned Tribal Wars... but very soon I'll be getting my new and hidden-until-official-beta project up and out there, after it's been re-jass-ified by my new partner. And since the only model I ever uploaded apparently corrupted any map it was uploaded to (not sure how, but it was enough to scare me from trying that again)... I'd love to show up as the following:

    Zanam [c] Water Elemental [c] Water Elemental with a dark tint [c] Corrupt Model File - (based from bloodlust) Corrupts a user's model file, making it harder for them to fight on the server. Reduces attack speed and size. (perhaps tint to 0/0/0 for a loss of texture effect for duration) [r]

    Sorry, but you're not known enough. I can't have everyone in this, because otherwise it'd be too crammed.

    I thought not. Good luck on the map regardless. I have a feeling it'll be rough to get all the names that should be in this to reply with their respective characters.

    Perhaps when I get Holiday Hell released I'll get a little bit more known... or I could release my SMB voice pack... hrm...

    If they don't reply I'll just have to make them up. All moderators from both sites will be in this.
