• Spotlight On: SavageNL


    We’re heading over to the EU for this weeks Fan Friday, all the way over to Den Bosch in The Netherlands infact to meet OMDU community regular SavageNL. Lets find out a bit more about our first featured EU player!

    The Basics

    • Name: Niels
    • Age: 29
    • Home Town: Den Bosch


    • What is day job?
    I’m a software engineer, from the forums I gather that most people are nowadays so I’m going to specify that to that I develop planning software in Java and C++.
    • Aside from gaming how else do you like to spend your free time?
    I like to go to the driving range to play some golf. I also regularly meet up with some friends to play board games and I watch quite a lot of tv shows and movies.
    • Biggest life adventure so far?
    I haven’t had many adventures, but I the first thing that comes to mind is a budget holiday to Bali with a friend where nothing was really planned, just the plane ride there and back. Had a great time there and managed to get a roof over our head every night but it was a very different experience when compared to all inclusive beach holidays.
    Apart from that, skydiving and bungee jumping was also very cool.
    • If you could pick anywhere in the world where you would love to travel to, where would it be?

    I’m not really the traveling type, but I would love to visit the US at some point. I don’t have a clue to which part so if I ever go it will probably be a road trip to visit some the obvious touristic locations.

    • Favourite food?
    Pretty much anything that is unhealthy. I think that at the moment the Dutch dish Kapsalon (fries with donner, garlic sauce and lettuce) is pretty high up the list.
    • How did you find out about Orcs Must Die! ?
    A friend played the first game and liked it and made me buy it in a Steam sale. I usually only play co-op games so I tried it and didn’t really ever finish it. When omd2 came out we both bought it and loved it so the moment I heard anything about omdu I bought a founder pack.
    • Who is your favourite OMDU hero and why?
    I like Stinkeye the best. Up until the last patch he was a great hero to defend with and when you were set up with totems you could take down an attacking BlackPaw.
    Since the patch with the new way of gathering leadership I find that I lean more towards picking Ivy though.
    • What do you think should be the “ideal” length of an OMDU match?
    That’s a tough question. I think the 20 target that I think Robot is aiming for sounds like a good goal but the matches I like most are the ones that are a close call, they usually last longer.
    • Is there anything missing in OMDU that you would like to see added?
    Until the last patch I would have said group queuing. I know a lot of people want an endless game mode but I think I am mostly missing a required tutorial (or a different way to force people to learn how to slot cards etc) and a way to make leavers not ruin a match.
    • When can we usually catch you in matchmaking?
    Usually in the evenings somewhere between 8 and 10 CEST.

    Shout Out

    • Is there anything you would like to say to all the OMD fans out there right now?

    We have a great community in the EU so I’d like to thank them all for making the game a fun experience so far. And of course a special shout out to FaTeReLLa’s ‘dream team’

  1. He’s right ^^ A lot of player want a endless mode like 5 Player vs. Minions(only) remove the bots, close the attack lanes and increase the defense lanes to 3 or 5. Set up a Bot that plays auto cars to the camps and inc. the number and HP of Minions for each wave. 🙂

    You’ll get the whole OMD 1 and 2 Community on our side. 95% of them want a 3+ player coop PvE. Just check out the steam Hub for OMD 2 😀

    Niels, you can add me ingame to play a few rounds if you want. ^^
