I've still been plugging away at my own creation, though my pace has slowed somewhat. I hope to have a working fight by the time the beta opens up again just to test just how bad the lag is for key press events and some other things. It's possible that it'll be almost unplayable if it's as bad as I've heard and/or Blizzard hasn't improved it. Not a huge tragedy if so... I'll just make it a cool single-player game. I've ended up doing stuff I never thought I'd be able to do, like recreating the magic missile effect from Baldur's Gate (with the 5 arcing balls), chain lightning, the deep wound effect from Guild Wars... I just need a couple more abilities to round out a full skill bar and implement my death system before moving on to balancing some stuff and, finally, terrain and story! My magic missile spell is also going to be in the biggest DotA remake out there at the moment.
