• Rogotin’s theorycrafting and Radiokenny’s testing find the x14 position

    Ok, Get ready for your mind to be blown OMD players. Robot Fans has confirmed with video evidence that the setup for the x14 combo in Orcs Must Die! is  possible. What does this mean? It means that Rogotin and RadioKenny have found a position in the game where 14 traps and other combos can be applied to an Ogre at the same time. The two players asked to keep the video private until further testing can be completed. The duo recently provided video of the worlds first x13 combo, It was also thought to be impossible before it was proven on the Twin Halls map.

    Will they be able to complete the x14 and will the game actually display it? I guess time will tell.

    Rogotin and Radiokenny weren’t just chasing Rainbows. X13 achieved


    Just days after a live interview with Robot community manager SixOkay sparked discussion about the possibility of an x13 combo in Orcs Must Die, it has been achieved. Robot forum member Rogotin theorized that OMD could produce an x13 if someone could find a place in the game to use a rolling log or boom barrel to add to an existing x12. Everyone thought that the theory was a long shot if not impossible, even with modded onslaught files and definitely not possible in normal gameplay. The world was proved wrong. Rogotin teamed with Radiokenny to produce an x13. It was accomplished by Radiokenny on the Twin Halls.

    The x12 in normal play was once thought to be the holy grail of OMD. Now with the x13 a reality. Are there anymore rainbows to chase? Only time will tell.
