• Spotlight on: Sagius


    This week the OMDU fan spotlight is shining down on Sagius. Or not shining as the case may be with his shadowy mysterious picture! Find out what we can learn about this man of mystery.

    The Basics

    • Name: Onur ‘Sagius’
    • Hometown: Çanakkale, a small coastal city in Turkey


    • What is your day job?
    I’m a mechatronics engineer graduate, currently looking for a job while studying for exams for a master’s degree.
    • What is your favourite food?
    Rice, with chicken! And for a dessert anything with chocolate or icecream.
    • What kind of music do you like?
    I like all kinds of music/art that is made to express feelings and not made to make money in an industrial fashion. Lately I’ve been listening to a lot relaxing music, soft rock, opera rock, country, classical music, any combination of violin/piano/guitar.
    • Biggest life adventure so far?
    Not really an adventurous kind of guy. Spent most of my time in university looking to enjoy refined tastes, rather than going to parties or doing crazy stuff. I was into all kinds of nerdy stuff, theater, philosophy, psychology, quantum physics etc.
    • How did you find out about Orcs Must Die! ?
    Through the trailer video. I was a big warcraft fan, and used to play all kinds of custom maps, including tower defense and battle arenas. When I saw OMD trailer, i knew i was going to play it for a long time.
    • What do you think about the new three lane map?
    “It’s big!” I think once it gets polished it will be “the OMD:U map”. The map size, number of lanes, makes it feel more of an OMD game compared to the 2-lane map. You get to do more strategic decisions on warcamps/trap placements and you even have to make decisions on how to use your time between waves as it’s very limited. I like it a lot more than 2-lane map.
    • Which OMDU Hero is your favourite and why?
    Ivy. All of her skills remain useful throughout the game. Although she isn’t very good at duelling other heroes, she has the ability to turn the fights around both in offense and defense. A good root/heal or trap disable can change the flow of the entire game. I think the quality of her skillset needs to be the standard for all heroes.
    • Which minion cards are most essential when you play?
    Pride hunters, dwarf shamans and ogres. I just use whatever has those in them. Dwarf shamans are getting nerfed and ogres are just standard fatties. But pride hunters need a big nerf, they do twice the damage they should be doing. 🙁
    • Whats the biggest thing you would like to change about OMDU right now?
    Collision! Seriously! It’s the only thing that feels clunky about the game.

    Shout Out

    • Is there anything you would like to say to all the OMD fans out there right now?
    Ivy is not a defender! NO! Just, DON’T!


    Now if like me, you might wonder what a mechatronics engineer does. According to good old Wikipedia it is summed up as follows:

    Mechatronics is a design process that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunications engineering, control engineering and computer engineering. Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering, that is to say, it rejects splitting engineering into separate disciplines.

    How about that. Sagius is a clever guy!
