    Orcs Must Die Unchained

    I was wondering if RPS had any other players, I'd like to friend up and have an opportunity to try something more organised.

    The game's presently in closed beta, right? I will probably give it a shot once it releases, when I find the time. I loved OMD! 1+2!
    Did you play it already? How do the predecessors traits translate to the PvP gameplay? Is it anything like Monday Night Combat?

    It's almost like an third person shooter DotA, except, yunno, with traps. In this beta phase it seems like they are pushing unlocks too hard, I frequently had gold (trap money) and nothing to spend it on. In orcs must die 2 I could WALLPAPER a whole level with traps, unchained currently has leveling up which withholds in game vectors for spending which is terrible game design.

    Unfounded Opinion:
    Robot have fallen for the seduction of creating mental pain.
    They want people to play to unlock stuff.
    They want people to clan up to unlock stuff.
    They want people to consider paying to unlock stuff.
    They want people to play OMDU exclusively of other multiplayer games.
    The idea is to trickle frustrations into the players psyche, I wish I had those things, I wish my team was more coherent, I wish I didn't have to level up in a game again. All these games are desperately trying to addict the player with traps..*ponders* Traps, and OMDU's traps are not up to par, lots of orc shooting is required. Honestly it's got some smart design.

    I'm not really 'down' on OMDU, it is still beta, but I feel like the business model could stop it ever reaching greatness.

    Thanks for the heads-up. For now I won't bother then...

    I'll report back incrementally, it has potential to be magnificent.
