    Well why would you want a lower level instance to overwrite a higher level one? xD

    Is that not how it normally works? The player who deals the killing blow gets the credit.

    Given the flame burst runs along the ground, it would be awkward for it to hit flying units. I also disabled the ability to cast the original spell on flying units because I didn't have enough time ;D

    Could you name the ability? Because I searched for a proper spell but it took me so long, so I gave up and went with this one.

    The duration can be changed by the user

    Unfortunately, I don't know the normal methods to do that.

    And thanks for your feedback.

    I didn't know about that ability. In that case lots of code lines will be removed from my entry. Thanks a lot.

    Channel is pretty great and is basically your go-to ability for coded spells: it lets you customize more or less everything, including lots of things that are hard to find elsewhere (targeting indicator, targets, channeling time, whether it's universal cast or not, etc) and some things that other abilities just flat out can't do (custom orderIDs in particular).

    --

    @Tank-Commander: To be completely honest I've been out of wc3 long enough that I forgot magic immune is a thing. I think my spell (almost) entirely ignores it, at least for hostiles, but that's by coincidence.

    If I recall correctly, Channel won't allow you to properly target trees unless you make that destructable "Selectable In Game". If you want to properly target trees, your best bet is to based the Spell on Abilities that allows targeting trees by default like Eat Tree, Sentinel, etc.

    But aren't you a particiant? Participants should not influence the judge's review.

    I think he was being sarcastic. I don't think Anachron would actually think it's okay for him to review his own spell lol.

    The problem is I'm always reviewing when I'm drunk and always lose progress due to no saving.... since 2 weeks.
    I tried to implement a javascript in pastebin for auto-saving my drafts, but somehow it seems lost.

    ---

    Serious notes aside, I should be done in 1-2 days. ^^ And your personal sent review via PM is of course being appriciated, too, to fasten the process! : )

    Well he was mentioning before that he was willing to drop out if there will be no judge so I thought he's more of a reviewer guy that a spell-maker guy. Also, when reading stuffs, my mind somehow automatically ignores those emojis.
