    At least it's better than waiting for the result of the old contest and doing nothing. Sadly, I'm too busy to join it now. :(

    Lol. So as I see you decided to host it again. Also it's better to have 3 judges (1 of them can be you yourself)

    Also Extra challenge looks really dull.

    Edit: This ICC is too similar to ICC9 (I mean consumable, scouting, etc). I expected smth more unique and interesting. Probably I won't join nor as a contestant neither as a judge.

    I want to keep the main challenge simple and the bonus and extra hard to fulfill. Also i usually don't limit stuff with time. The ICC9 was to make a consumable, and this bonus requires you to use a consumable. Rly, two different things. I might judge it, but 2 judges are enough IMO.

    For challenge i also had: New raw item, and Item with 2 ogre axes.

    Despite of being different they feel similar to me. No inspiration at all.

    are the suggestions of these contests used for brainstorming in the real game or are these threads just for fun?

    O_xD, so you can host a new one even without the old isn't finished yet?

    Anyway I will try to think an idea for this contest =)
    And I hope that this one finishes well...

    Might as well get implemented, but rly odds are little

    you can host when the last contest is in judging.

    Just post your item here and send me a pm with it, confirming thatyou will join. You must fulfull the main challenge and write a short explanation. I don't get how you can possibly be busy after easter, but, who cares?
    You will have 5 days after we have all contestants and judges to edit up your item and make it as balanced as possible.

    As for the extra challenge, does bottle and animal/flying courier count as consumables?
