Two macros, both alike in dignity

Except that one works, and the other one doesn't.

 

Polymorph Macro (Works):

#show Polymorph
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/stopcasting
/castrandom [target=focus,exists,harm] Polymorph(Turtle), Polymorph; Polymorph(Pig), Polymorph

 

 

Counterspell Macro (Doesn't)

#show Counterspell
/clearfocus [modifier:alt]
/focus [target=focus,noexists]; [target=focus,dead]
/clearfocus [target=focus,help]
/stopcasting
/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell, Counterspell

 

 

Side by side comparison here; it's a bit wide, so I didn't want to embed the image.
 
I don’t see a bit of difference in the parlance, if you discount therandom bit of the polymorph macro, and that shit’s only there because I want pigs and turtles.
 
I have been using these macros since BC, and come WOD the counterspell one is like lolnope. I’ve taken to having to switch targets each time I need to counterspell, and that annoys me. I know that there are other macros posted on the mage page, but I want to know.... Does anybody have a clue why the counterspell macro is not working??

Theres a difference between castrandom and cast

 

Syntax:

/castrandom spell, spell

 

You separate the list of spells with a comma "," and castrandom will select one for you.

 

 

/cast [conditions]spell ; spell

 

 

";"

 

if the first condition is not met, it moves to the section after the semicolon.

 

 

Correct syntax:

/cast [target=focus,exists,harm] Counterspell; Counterspell

Oh sweet Light. Removing the second iteration of counterspell worked. Thank you.

 

I'd swear that I haven't changed the macros since I made them in bc. Did the way that macros are processed changed?

 

I did switch factions. It's entirely possible that I had to recreate them, but you'd think I'd remember having to do that.
