But it can effectively shut down gold output for a time while he configures his peon pathing to avoid the mines.

Actually, the way I'd solve it (since mines are a great idea) is to give the mine placement a casting time, so the goblins are visible (and killable) for a few seconds before the mine is placed. That way the other player at least has a chance to keep you out before his buildings are irreversibly Kaboom!ed.
Wow, I never would've thought to do that, actually.

In all honesty, I had no time to balance or test anything whatsoever; I only tested to make sure it worked in-game. If anything is balanced, just know it's all theorycrafting/shots in the dark. :P

Well, Kyrb, the only REALLY imbalanced thing I found in your race is the pwnage versus Orc computer opponents - just take those orc-catapult things, dig with them underground and attack their main base. The poor orcs have no idea what to do and the witch doctors don't put any Sentry Wards, thus they will never find out about the invisible units in their base, until they destroy the whole base and later destroy the units.

Uhm... Dusk, are you ready to open the poll? It's been quite a long time since the contest ended and we're all looking forward to vote (and we're also curious to see who'll win) so please, let us know.

In the case we could form a team to see if the submissions respect the rules and to do the package with all of the submissions.

Don't forget about us.

^Now that's positive... Just look at MP, at least he was respectful.

It may take some time, guys. I mean, the 3rd Hero Contest is still awaiting judging. People are a bit busy with end-of-term stuff, I would imagine.

I am also respectful, at my own way.

I know this may sound off-topic, but hell, isn't 6 months enough time? To be honest I don't think the pool for hero contest will ever be created, and I don't think Spell Olympics will ever be judged.

I am sure this won't be the case of this contest by two man reasons:
- It is a mini.contest, therefore smaller and people will expect results
- there are a lot of people already asking for a pool. Sure Dusk didn't answered to any posts yet (ignoring posts maybe?) and sure he didn't created the pool on the day he promised, but I am also sure he will have some excuse to justify himself (he always has one) and that he will (maybe?) accuse us all of being impatient, and in some cases even childish (guess who)...

Anyway, just relax guys, Dusk will create the pool ... when? no idea.

What's a pool? I mean, in regards to the Hero Contest, you said "I don't think the pool for the HC...".

Also, this

Is not respectful in any way. I mean, not saying we have to be all "walk in straight lines" elementary-school "respect your authorities" here, but more respect for people's lives.

It is not ignored, neither is the Olympics. Let me remind you that there are effectively 4 people on this website that do an entire staff's job. Outside of the occasional moderation here and there, the admins practically do everything. I would appreciate it a lot if you would stop riding on us and accept the fact that right now (it being, you know, the last weeks of college semesters) we have things more important to do than run contests.

I will have this poll up Saturday or next Thursday. Saturday is my only free time this week and I probably will end up spending it writing a presentation for my payload's financial defense come Monday. Please bear with me and the rest of the staff.

Oh and by the way, since I forgot to specify in the rules how the contest will be judged, do you guys want a judge and the poll or just the poll?

I think just a poll is the better option here. I mean, what would a judge grade on? "Race Design"? But that would really be a part of everyone's vote anyway, so...

The main purpose for a judge, as I see it, is to provide a mediating factor. That is, ordinary voters may be biased in favor of friends or people who helped with their own submission, for instance. A judge, hopefully, would be above such considerations.

Since I am not an entrant, it makes no difference to me either way.

Thx God it is not Olympics, I would hate to wait another 6 months ... to have nothing in the end.
If you lack on staff, just promote more people. Seriously, you have plenty of people that have enough knowledge to be come mods (Litany occurs me)...
I am not in your country, so I can't talk about end of the semesters (mine is only on half ... and its being hell) but I understand your position. However, you shouldn't make promises you know you can't keep. And yes, this is my last post where I wine (whine xD ) about the delay, so you can relax ...

Having in mind most mods (that can be judges) are busy now, I believe a simple pool (let's swim guys!) would be enough IMO. =D

That's a good point, but I vote for only the poll hoping that the number of voters may overcome the biases.
