    @TankCommander:

    actually, Tank, I think your entry doesn't look like an "aura". I think it should not have missiles being launched at targets, but it should instantly affects the target instead. I'm just comparing with any other wc3 aura abilities. That's why I'm changing my concept.

    What makes you say that? my effect markers and buff appears instantly on affected targets (granted the activation of the main effect doesn't start until the projectile hits home, but that can be changed to deal 0 damage or even be an instantaneous effect - as well as invisible - by playing around with the config a bit - which would emulate what you suggest)

    The definition which I got from TriggerHappy (original starter of the current contest concept thread) agreed with me when I suggested "AOE Passive Centred on the Hero" as a definition of Aura. This was then expanded to include abilities with active effects, in terms of that, don't think I've broken any definitions of Aura which we're working with

    Decided to work on my entry and the aura won't apply the debuff on enemy units and when I change the target to friend, it applies it. Why do you hate me editor?

    I haven't looked closely at your entry actually :p I can't argue about this topic though, because personally, I don't clearly understand about definition of "aura"

    I believe it's because of the whole projectile thing making people think it's not an aura.

    Regardless, I think if the map were actually downloaded and tested, it would be fairly apparent that it is to all intensive purposes, it cannot really be helped if a feature of it strays away from the common "expected" parts of an Aura, when we are afterall doing a contest that celebrates originality and inventive ideas

    No, WIPs are only verification, you don't have to.

    I really doubt I'll find time to work on this before the contest is over, but I have the start to a good idea, I think.

    Is it okay if the skill name does not include the word 'aura' in it? I'm revising my aura for the second time.

    I don't think its against Contest's rules. It's the "effect", theme is restricted about - not the details sorrounding actual entry.

    Five periodic timers? If they have different timeouts that aren't multiples of eachother then that's alright.

    Nonsense. As the great Dusk once said "helping my enemies means they might actually pose a challenge". :D
