Title: Competition #32
Post by: Aeroblyctos on November 19, 2011, 11:44:41 am
Competition Idea

In this competition you're challenged to create a new ability for Fradz. It can be from any category and theme is lightning. The ability will have 20 levels except if the ability is Ultimate ability(10 levels) and Special Ability(depends of Fradz's level).


Hints

    • Categories are: Special(depends), Single(20 levels), AoE(20 levels), Heal(20 levels), Element(20 levels) and Ultimate(10 levels).
    • Remember to mention these things: Cast time, Cooldown and what does increase the power of your ability.



    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:

        • Is your idea creative and fresh?
        • Can I possibly create your idea?
        • The presentation?




        Deadline

        The competition begins immediately and conclude 27.11.2011.



        Final Words

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

        Fradz shocks an enemy(dealing some dmg) using all his power.In fact he uses so much power that the lightning he uses became yellow.2 seconds after the enemy's body is shocked , from it , lightning start bursting out to the sky , taking a part of his mana.

        Leap of Lightning (LoL)
        Category: AoE, Element

        Description: Leaping into the air full of lightning energy, Fradz makes a crash landing, freeing the lightning charges in a nova to damage enemies in range.

        Effect: Fradz leaps to a group of enemies, causing lightning (magic) damage to enemies in the area of effect (nova).

        Calculation:
        Damage: Magic Power x 2 + X per Skill Level
        Range: 300 (starting value) + 20 per Skill Level


        Could be good , but I'm preety sure blink/teleport abilities would suck in the game(they can cheat puzzles and stuff)

        Quote
        P.S. Another abbrevation for "LoL" after "Laughing out Loud" and "League of Legends".

        Lol




        And ofc a 3rd entry from Blackdoom59


        Fradz special ability
        Lightning angel


        Fradz turns himself into an angel with only one blade , gaining bonus dmg , attack speed and health for 10 seconds , but he can cast no spells while in the effect.

        YOU NEED TO CHANGE THE COLOR FROM BLACK TO BLUE , SO IT CAN BE LIGHTNING :D


        Calc:
        Dmg bonus:lvlx10
        AS bonus:lvlx1%
        HP bonus:lvlx20

        Hello,

        Could be good , but I'm preety sure blink/teleport abilities would suck in the game(they can cheat puzzles and stuff)

        It could also be a leap-in-place or so minimal range, that it barely grants abuse.
        Or create a condition to require units in the area.

        That could actualy work , but it restricts 50% of your ideea.

        LIGHTNING PROTECTION - ULTIMATE ABILITY
        Description: Fradz draws energy from the sky and combines it with his mana to create a powerful lightning shield and a lightning ball (hovering on top of him). The shield nullifies all incoming damage during its duration.
        Enemies attempting to attack/target a spell on Fradz will be hit by a blue/red lightning bolt from the lightning ball, dealing damage to them. When the spell expired, the resulting flash blinds enemy units in a 400 AoE (missing 80% of attacks in the next 5 secs). The spell lasts 10 seconds on all level.

        Ups, I forgot to check this competition.  ;D

        From now on I make it like this: "The competition begins immediately and conclude at earliest X or when I judge the competition."

        Hohoo, I'm so wise!

        Ultimate ability:
        Lightning divider:
        Fradz turns into lightning himself, which makes him able to create X illusions of himself. These illusions have the same attack speed, attack power, attribute bonuses from items and attributes as Fradz, but receive three times the damage ( or have 1/3 hitpoints of Fradz). These illusions as well have no abilitys, they can only use autoattack (and maybe some passive skill bonusses). While these lightnings illusions fight for Fradz, Fradz himself is hidden, invulnerable and unable to attack or move. The illusions disappear after 15-30 seconds (something in between this time gap should be fine) or after they have been killed. After every illusions has disappeared or has been killed, Fradz himself appears again (For balance you could give him a buff or a debuff after appearing, change the lifetime of these illusions or change the number of these illusions).

        I like this one , but if a player choses the special ability "Ilusionary duble"  for fradz , the ilusions of your spell will have it too.So if there are about 5 ilusions ,each one of them will create ANOTHER ilusion of itself when it enters into battle , so from 5 it will get 10.So it's preety imba with Ilusionary duble :P

        Damn, I forgot to write, that these illusion don't have any abilitys. Otherwise it would be like "yey, 5 times teleport strike!" or "yey, 5 times heal + stats increase". Aero himself said too, that this would crash the game, so yeah, you're right. I'll edit this.

        Ilusions can't have active abilities , but they have pasive abilities (such as ilusionary duble) and those facts can't be change in WorldEdit as far as I know :)

        Hello, it's the judge speaking!


        Lightning Elemental by Blackdoom59

        Pros & Cons:
         
        + All the abilities are acceptable for a summon
        + Lightning vortex is an excellent idea(never used before)

        Overall you did a great job and put some effort to this. However, there's just one thing that amazed me. I'll combine yours and mine ideas together and finish the summon for Fradz.

        3 / 5



        Celestal Lightning by Blackdoom59

        Pros & Cons:

        + Works
        - Unoriginal

        There's not much to say about this ability. There are already 4 Single abilities and this isn't better than any of those(I don't say the current ones are that great).

        1 / 5



        Celestal Lightning by Blackdoom59

        Pros & Cons:

        + The core idea is nice
        - Just a transformation, that's the only thing you gave me
        - Model is bad(I'm not a modeler)

        This has some potential but I feel like it was left unfinished. Fradz turns to somekind of angel, but what then? I mean some abilities or something for it... Not just basic attack.

        2 / 5



        Lightning Protection by Doomlord

        Pros & Cons:

        + I like the invulnerable shield
        + Fine presentation
        - Red and blue? Why don't those two have something that separates them?
        - Really hard to balance

        The idea is great but there are some flaws in it. Why different color and would play in reality want this? For invulnerable yes but the damage back is really hard to balance. This type of ability I'll eventually do but I'm not sure yet if there will come some lightnings.

        2,5 / 5



        Mark of the thunder god by Doomlord

        Pros & Cons:

        + Works
        + Fine presentation
        - Not original


        Well, this could work but this is far from original. Giving some bonus stats for a short time has been seen many times before.

        2,5 / 5



        Lightning divider ny Isofruit

        Pros & Cons:

        + This ability is unique and none so far is like this
        - Presentation is boring
        - You didn't gave me effects or anything eye candy

        Overall I liked the idea and I'll search how is this possible to do.

        3,5 / 5


        Okay, thanks everyone for joining the contest. We got some new sexy ideas. Winner is Isofruit.

        Eye candy refers to the effect(s) displayed when a spell is activated.. This is one of the most important factors of a spell therefore you should include it in your posts.
