    Competition Theme: I Like Big Comps and I Cannot Lie 

    First of all, congratulations to PhoenixFeather for winning WCDC 10.13!
     
    Earlier this year, Pircival won Hearthpwn's Class Competition with Izzy Jameson, the Archaeologist. You can find the full post here:
     
     
    This week, make a card from any class (or the Archeologist class) that features the keyword: Decay. Decay is the class keyword of Archaeologist, representing the antiquity of their antiques. (Don't judge the diction, this is a direct quotation from Pirc himself). Decay reads as follow:
     
     
    Note: Decay does not stack.
     
    Some examples are shown below:
    You can choose the Archeologist class by selecting more classes on Hearthcards.net and selecting the "Pirate Hero" icon:
     

     

    This competition is a way of dipping your toes into the world of custom class creation!  Have a look around and see some of the hard work and careful thought that goes into creating an entire custom class! If you want to join our discussion on how we'll handle our next Big Comp, send us your thoughts here!

    General Competition Rules

    These are the rules that remain consistent from competition to competition.

    Posting Rules

    • You are allowed to submit only one entry. 
    • After your submit, you may only make minor edits to your submissions (spelling, grammar, etc.). Please PM a fan creations moderator if you have questions regarding an edit you are not sure about.
    • You may not delete ANY posts you make in this Submission Topic, not even accidental ones. Please PM a fan creations moderator if you make a mistake in your submission.
    • This thread is for submissions only. Any discussion of the competition must take place in the discussion topic.

    These are the rules about your Submission:

    • Your card cannot be Golden, have a hearthcards.net generated backdrop, or any major photo editing done to it.
    • You are allowed to post in this Submission Topic only once, only to submit your one entry.
    • Accompanying the image of your card, you may offer some minimal additional commentary to explain its design, balance, and/or other qualities. Flavor text is also welcome.
    • You may not plagiarize. An immediate qualification is the punishment for this offense.
    • You must host your card on a image hosting website. postimage.org is highly recommended. imgur.com currently has issues on this site and images hosted there do not show up.
    • Fun and even humorous entries are perfectly allowed, but "troll" entries will be disqualified. If you're worried that your card may be misinterpreted as a troll card, contact a moderator before you submit. Emote-related cards will be considered a troll entry.
    • We reserve the right to classify cards as "troll" entries as we deem necessary, even if the reasoning is not explicitly stated in the rules.

    A Note on Group Submissions: If you team up with other people to submit an entry, you must enclose that information in your submission and none of you may upvote that entry. That would be considered an unfair advantage and we will treat it as vote-manipulation. You are technically voting for yourself, and that is not allowed. Failing to tell us you're in a group is also against the rules, as we'll have no choice but to assume that you withheld the information to ghost-vote your group's submission.

    Finally, know that manipulating votes in any way is strictly forbidden. Any violators will receive an official warning, and will be banned from this and all future HearthPwn Card Design Competitions.


    Posting Tutorial

    This is a posting tutorial for the website imgur.com. If you use another website, the process will be similar.

    1. It is recommended you use hearthcards.net to create your cards. Save the generated card to your device.
    2. Upload the image to imgur.com. You do not need an account.
    3. After your image is uploaded, many links will be generated. Find the "Direct link". It will have a .jpg or .png at the end of the link. Copy the link.
    4. On your hearthpwn post, find the "Insert/edit image" button: 
    5. Paste the direct link. This is recommended but not mandatory: You may choose to make the image smaller by changing the image dimensions.

     Competition Process

    Below is a list of all the deadlines for this contest:

    Preview Phase (Nov. 19, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Nov 20, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    The Discussion Topic is made available, previewing this week's competition theme.
    Entry and Early Voting Phase (Nov. 20, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Nov. 24, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be unlocked. You may also, of course, feel free to give early up-votes to any submissions that you like!
    Voting Phase (Nov. 24, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Nov. 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    During this Phase, the Submission Topic will be locked, so no more entries may be submitted. Instead, use this time to browse the submissions and up-vote your favorites!
    Final Phase (Nov. 25, 2019 [10:00 PM CST] -  Nov 26, 2019 [10:00 PM CST])
    During this Phase, the Discussion Topic will also be locked, and a Finalists Thread will go up. Discussion will be allowed to continue in the Finalists Thread, and it will also include all the qualifying finalists and a poll to decide the winner of the competition!


    How do we determine the qualifying finalists? We use the following formula:

     ab ) / ( ) = x

    Where,
    a = The total number of submissions on the same page as the submission.
    b = The total number of up-votes that the submission received.
    c = The total number of up-votes on the same page as the submission.
    x = The submission's final score.

    The formula basically measures which cards stood out the most, with the necessary assumption that each page is about equal in overall submission quality. It will be the entries that receive the highest final scores that move on to the Final Phase.

    The bottom line is that, although entries on the earlier pages of the Submission Topic are much more visible and thus receive many more up-votes than entries on later pages, you don't actually have to rush to get your entry in as soon as possible because the up-votes end up being weighted by what page your entry ends up on in order to determine its final score.

    But wait, there's more! During each Weekly Card Design Competition, each Fan Creation Forum moderators will be given a Wild Card , which they can use to advance any one entry that they feel was initially overlooked or under-appreciated to the Final Phase, regardless of its final score. Wild Cards are our way of spicing things up a bit, but please don't ask to be given one or be upset if you aren't given one. These are just supposed to be fun.
    (Also, it should go without saying that, while we moderators are allowed to participate in the competitions, we are not allowed to benefit from Wild Cards.)


    Rewards

    Bragging rights are always awesome, but as usual, we do offer a couple of HearthPwn site rewards to competition winners:
    Their card forever immortalized in our Winners' Gallery!
    They will be allowed to select the next card design competition theme.
    And a unique Avatar Border & " Card Design Champion " Title, as depicted below!

    Good Luck!

    Discussion Topic Rules

    To make sure that everything runs smoothly, we need to reserve the Submission Topic for submissions only. Everything else goes here. What is everything else, you might ask?

        • Rules or Process. Do you have a question about the competition's process? Do you need clarification about one of the entry requirements? Are you not sure whether your entry adhered to the rules? Ask here!
        • Feedback or Ideas. Do you have some ideas you'd like to run by others before settling on one? Do you need help balancing or wording your entry? Do you need help finding art that will fit your card? Or do you just want feedback from the community on your entry? You're in the right place! Remember, although you are allowed to make minor tweaks to your entry after you've submitted it, you're only allowed one submission per week, so make sure that you've settled on your card for sure beforehand.
        • Discussion! Do you have thoughts on other people's entries? Are there directions you don't like that you're seeing too many people take? Or directions you'd like to see more people take? Would you like to help others and contribute to a greater community understanding of Hearthstone card design and balance? This is where you want to be!

    All of that said, please refrain from the following:

        • Posting TONS of Ideas. Discussion topics become an absolute mess if everybody is posting a dozen different ideas. Please post not more than 3 distinct ideas at a time. Any more than that and we'll have to delete your post.
        • Advertising Your Entry. As a rule of thumb, please don't pop in here just to advertise your entry only to never be heard from again. This includes only asking short, generic questions like "Thoughts?" or "Do you think this is interesting?". Yes, getting feedback on your entry is one of the purposes of this topic, but we're not just here for other people to help you. We're here for you all to help each other
        • Plagiarism. Many people post their ideas here before finalizing them in the submission topic. Directly plagiarizing those ideas to post in the submission topic yourself is absolutely not acceptable.

    Looking for more information about the WCDC or Fan Creations in general? Why not check out this FAQ to see if your question is answered there? You can also PM one of us Fan Creation Mods!

    "Drake it to the limit, one more time"

    Mechanic explanation: If this minion gets played next to a dragon, it gains +2/+2.  Then, if a minion is placed between it and the dragon and then THAT minion dies, it AGAIN becomes adjacent and AGAIN will gain +2/+2

    Competition Theme: This is Gonna Drag-on Forever

    Congratulations once again to Adamaxes for winning WCDC 10.12.  As the Year of the Dragons approaches the beginning of its end and with the new expansion about to descend upon us, this week's competition will be Dragon themed!

    Competition-Specific Restrictions:  

    You can make ANY card that interacts with dragons, However: 

    • The interaction CANNOT be "if you are holding a dragon"
    • You are allowed to include up to (1) token. If you are doing so, make sure BOTH of them interact with dragons and stick with Rule 1. 

    Examples include: Dragonslayer, Dragon Speaker, Dragon Consort, and Dragonfire Potion

    Quote from Adamaxes >>
    you don't want to have a weapon equipped when you play this since weapons are activated during your turn, which means this minion also takes damage when it attacks your hero. 

    Just a small point here.  When a minion attacks a hero with an equipped weapon, the minion does not take damage.

    This Week's Finalists


    Competition Theme: Pet Cemetary

    Congratulations once again to nobravery for winning WCDC 10.10. They've got a fitting competition theme as we near Halloween.

    Competition-Specific Restrictions:  

    You will create a Zombeast. However:

    • It must combine with an in-game beast that costs (5) or less that has no text or simple keywords. (River CrocoliskYoung Dragonhawk, etc.) You include this in your post.
    • You create a Beast, either Standard or Wild. As with all Zombeast cards, this must cost (5) or less. You do not post this card.
    • The resulting card, the combination of an in-game Beast and the Beast you create, is the Zombeast you enter to this competition.
    • You don't have to name it "Zombeast", name your entry however you'd like.
    • Interestingly, nobravery did not specify that the Beast you will create to combine with has to be a Neutral or Hunter beast, nor did he specify the in-game Beast you will use have to be Neutral or Hunter. The end result, however, must be a Hunter Zombeast.
    • As a rule of thumb, balance your entry as if you used Rexxar's Hero Power to create it, instead of a standalone card.

    This is a special, seasonal contest! What better way to celebrate the spoopy season than with a prize of 7 free packs to the winner?


    We have calculated the 8 entries with the highest scores!! 
    Check out all the finalists below and vote in our poll (vote for as many or as few as you like) to help decide the winner and be sure to check back after the poll finishes for the announcement of the winner and the start of a new theme!
