    My builds have been fairly "unique". It has rarely been a good think, heh.

    OK I started over and completely re-worked my idea, basically I dumped [REDACTED] and went with ...

    Build submitted, hopefully without too many errors this time
    π = 4
    Consider a 5' radius blast: this affects 4 squares which have a circumference of 40' Actually it's worse than that.

    I've been slammed by schoolwork and other stresses the past few days. How much time do we have left to get these in? I should have enough time hopefully...

    Honestly, I haven't felt particularly inspired since my first entry. I keep submitting, though, for practice. Waiting for a brilliant stroke of creativity to hit me on of these days... In the meantime, I'll take my lower-middle rankings and keep learning.

    I'm interested in seeing what is done here, and can't wait for the reveal. Mostly because I'm at a loss as to how anyone could have found a way to do anything cool and/or broken with this class's abilities.

    Well, I finally got mine in. Dang it was hard but it was worth it no matter what my score is. Now I just can't wait to see all the builds.

    This week has sucked, otherwise I would have had this in sooner. Ah well. As they say, better late than never.

    I agree, I'm very intrigued to see what people came up with. I could only see two, maybe three workable options... I wonder how many people duplicated my ideas, or will we see some very unique, I-never-would-have-thought-of-that builds?

    Of the competitions I've entered, this one I'm the most excited to see the reveal!

    Heh it's a good thing I never think about expectations. I made my idea original to me, that works as far as I am concerned. Should be posting soon right?

    this SI is so much worse than I thought it was when I asked for it way back when. I can't wait to see what the rest of y'all cooked up.

    After all the posts in the past 3 pages with variations on "submitted"... I'm wondering if my decision to judge was such a bright idea after all...

    Well the OP needs some tweaking and revision. For example, in theory the builds where to be revealed on Sunday may 26th which is a bit weird since Sunday is 27th, and there are still submissions going on.

    Obviously the judges would need more than 5 days to judge so yeah... it probably won't surprise anyone if the judging deadline is pushed back.

    Personally I hope to see how the other contestant's builds work, I am quite curious since there were only [redacted] main tricks that where derived from the SI that I could think of. And some other secondary tricks that border cheese fondue territory imho. Maybe I missed something.

    Far as I can tell, today is Sunday and it's the 26th... A quick google of "date and time in GMT" tells me it's 11:29 PM on Sunday, May 26th.

    If it's only a little bit past the deadline you can still send it in. There's multiple precedents from other comps.

    Yeah it does seem like quite a few people were deciding not to enter this one for one reason or another. So it shouldn't be too heavy a workload for the judges, at least compared to last time I hope.
