Upcoming Changes to OMDU
By now you’ve read our big blog post announcing the upcoming changes to OMDU. If you haven’t, stop and take a few minutes to do so before you continue. We know there will be a LOT of questions about game changes, the reset, and the progress that players have already made in the OMDU Open Beta. We will have a lot more details to share in the next few weeks, but we want to make sure major account questions are answered right away.
The Reset and You
What’s getting reset?
All player progress will be reset as part of the next major OMDU update. This includes hero and account levels, earned stars, purchased or unlocked content such as heroes, skins, and traps, accumulated crafting resources, and spent gold. Leaderboards will also be reset.
Will I start with anything after the reset?
- Social features will not be affected; players will retain their usernames, friends list, and guilds. Note: earned guild points will be reset, but the guilds themselves will not be affected.
- Founders will keep their unique in-game flair, as well as their enchanted armor skins.
- Any unspent gold currently on your account will remain after the reset, and any gold spent before the reset will be returned to your OMDU account and will be available to spend again.
- All players will receive 1,250 additional gold for logging in during the first two weeks after the update.
- The following promotional skins will be retained post-reset. For skins not listed immediately below see the next section:
- Cardboard Tube Samurai Maximilian
- Life in Plastic Gabriella
- Breaker of Molds Bloodspike
- Lionheart Maximillian
- Blackscale Blackpaw
What about my promotional items?
Many players have earned different promotional skins throughout the closed and open beta of OMDU. If you couldn’t join us at PAX East or missed the open beta survey, rejoice! If you redeemed a code for ANY of the skins below during the closed or open beta, you’ll be provided with ALL of the skins below.
- Scared-Crow Maximilian
- PAXimilian Maximilian
- Orc Slayer Maximilian
- Lucky Tunic Maximilian
- Promising Prodigy Gabriella
- Frightfully Delightful Gabriella
- Violet Vintage Gabriella
- Firestarter Smolder
- War Chief Tundra
When is this happening?
The progress reset and removal of Siege mode will both occur with the next major update. There will be patch notes and ample warning, so don’t worry if you hear that there is regular maintenance scheduled in the coming weeks. We will let you know in advance of the update.
What happens when I log in after the update?
All players will log in with level 1 accounts after the update and progress reset. Players will progress through a new Survival prologue experience and unlock starter content. Details on the changes coming to Survival mode will become available soon.
Real Money Purchase Conversions
With the removal of Siege mode, a number of items previously sold for OMDU will no longer exist in the game. We want to ensure that all players who have purchased packs and bundles retain the full value of their purchases, and also offer an additional bonus in gratitude for the long time support from our most devoted community members.
Anyone who purchased DLC on Steam or Founder Packs from OrcsMustDie.com will receive the regular price of their purchases in gold, plus an additional 50% gold. This will allow each player to create their own starter bundle with the items and heroes they prefer.
The chart below represents the amount of gold players will receive based on their original purchases.
Note: Heroes received from purchased Founder Packs and DLC purchases listed above will be retained after the reset.
Master tier Founders will receive all future OMDU heroes at no additional charge, and War Mage tier Founders will receive all current OMDU heroes at no additional charge.
Heroes crafted in-game or purchased individually with gold will not be retained.
Promotional access codes (including but not limited to Master and War Mage Founder's packs or other early access codes) are not included. The above applies to game purchases only.
We greatly value our Founders, and we hope you will continue playing OMDU after the update. We are continuing to invest in OMDU and make it great. And we want your continued involvement and feedback. We hope you find the Founder bonuses valuable. However, we recognize you became a Founder when the game only had Siege mode. If you were only interested in Siege and do not want to continue the journey with us you can get information about refunds for Founder Packs at http://bit.ly/RefundFAQ.
