Competition #30
« on: November 02, 2011, 11:19:44 am »
Competition Idea

In this competittion you're challenged to create a passive 20 level ability. The ability must be unique, interesting and useful all the way    through the campaign. You can make the ability whoever character you want, but remember the element must be fire, ice or lightning.



Hints

    Competition Rules

      • The idea have to be yours.
      • You can make unlimited amount of entries.
      • I will have all the rights to edit the rules all the time(I will do it correctly and I will be fair for everyone).




      Competition Prizes

      The winner of this competition will have his or her name to Hall Of Fame and will be credited as "Competition Winners" and "Idea Giver". If you have one more than once you'll be credited automatically as "Great Idea Giver". Also any other ideas that I'll use will be credited as "Idea Giver".



      Judging

      I'm the only one who will judge the winner of the competition. I will judge all entries. The amount of entries you post will not decrease your chance to win in any way. However, if there are a lot of entries or horrible entries, I'll have the right to kick some of them away in order to make the final judge easier for me.

      This is the order how I judge:

        • Does your idea fit with the character?
        • Is your idea creative and fresh?
        • Can I possibly create your idea?
        • Is the icon good enough?
        • The presentation?




        Deadline

        The competition begins immediately and conclude 14.11.2011.



        Final Words

        Good luck, may the best idea win. If you have questions, ask.

        Hello,

        Ouch, that is one tough deadline (less than a week).

        So I assume it's "20-level" ability (to clarify any doubts of level 20 ability)?
        Also, when you tell to make the ability balanced, is it forced to give exact values or is it okay with X, Y & Z as guidelines? :)

        Well all single, AoE, Element and Heal abilities has 20 levels so yeah.

        Yea you should give some values in this competition. Remember that percentages are pretty bad when there are so many levels.

        Thunder Blades

        Description: Every X seconds Fradz's swords are charged with lightning energy. The next attack (deals critical damage and) purges the target for Y seconds, immobilizing it during the first Y/2 seconds and slowing it by 80% the next Y/2 seconds. Y is improved and X is decreased with spell level.
        Side notes:
        • Recommended Calc: Initial X = 13~15s, Y=2s. Each level decreases X by 0.5s and increases Y by 0.25s.
        • I recommend a critical strike on the triggered attack for best damage output (This depends on Aero anyways).
        • X should be about 10~15 seconds.
        • Effect should be available in Warcraft 3 TFT (Purge or Chain Lightning Target effect is recommended).
        • As for the icon I suggest the Sword Dance icon with some lightning effect (can't do it myself :( ) or http://www.hiveworkshop.com/forums/icons-541/btnlightningattack-186607/?prev=search%3Dlightning%26d%3Dlist%26r%3D20.
        • And if you like this Aero I can do this and send you a test map later :D

        Well, if you checked the deadline, you would realise that officially this competition has already ended.

        Okay... Well my weekend started already so the next day when I'm at school is... Monday. So I'll judge Monday. It's good to do forum things when I'm at school because we have a lot of time there... Too long breaks there and then I can focus on the camapaign when I'm at home.  ;)

        Hello everyone, this is the judge speaking!

        Let's see what we have here. This time we got entries from Blackdoom, Doomlord and DD Canada who has two entries. The first entry is from Blackdoom. This idea fails already because it isn't a passive ability.

        The next entry which I'll judge is from Doomlord. This idea has potential and I like where you're going with it. Actually I'm not going to create this ability, but instead I'll upgrade and combine with current Lightning Blade.

        Then I'll judge DD Canada's entries. First entry is about restoring mana and health when casting abilities. Well, this idea is already used(items) and I see this idea pretty bland anyway. I won't be doing this one. The second entry is about activating a special state where Fradz is invulnerable and has increased attack speed. Well, this ability will be too imba later so I cannot accept it as you've described it. However I'm going to add a similar ability to the campaignand this entry has helped a lot creating it.

        Now about the winner. All entries are well presented and this is a very good thing. However, the winner is between Doomlord and DD Canada... I think Doomlord's entry is more ready, balanced and well thought so he will be the winner. Congratulations!
