Warbucks was a fun character with perks that were bland and required some change to make them more interesting.

Wormwood is a unique character very different from the others. He is a bit harder too (he can't heal from food). And I must say I really, really like him! Is he better than Warbucks? Definitely!

But Warbucks was already made. Someone put work in this character. Those graphics/ code/ lines didn't make themselves. So it's illogical in my opinion to delete him... Why just not rework his perks?

To be fair they have been completely contradicting themselves on this all weekend, basically up until this morning when the official line changed to a firm "we're not bringing him back period", almost as if they're challenging their fan base to be pissed.

 

You do have a point. The fans are saying what they want, and they're really not asking much, but Klei are refusing to give it to them, and although their hearts seem to be in the right place, it's possibly the worst thing they could do.

Because they said the perks weren't what caused his removal and that they might bring back the perks for a different character, slightly changed.

Him not coming back seemed to have been the case from the start. The wording in the OP was just confusing so people were unsure if "starting from scratch" meant a rework, or Wormwood had taken his place.

This was later clarified. Don't misunderstand.

I know it wasn't just the perks. That's why I wrote:

Because they don't wanna dive into sunk cost fallacy?

Nope. Shipwrecked just reskinned the whole thing. I want an entirely new, different way to worldhop in Hamlet, so it's not just assemble the parts n' go for the 3rd time. Some time ago I've suggested using BFB for that, but it probably wouldn't work.

It's an interesting argument. But keep in mind that most people liked him/ were neutral towards him. It's not like he was hated by majority of players...

We already changed the strings a long time ago. As I said previously, there was no outrage that this was in response to. It was a decision we made so we can make something new and interesting. 

What I was saying before with the gameplay was not to say that we would just bring the exact same gameplay back on a new character, but to mean that the gameplay people enjoyed about Warbucks. He was pretty lackluster, but there were aspects to him that people enjoyed and are upset to lose, so we are discussing what to do about that specifically. 

Isn't that the same with Walani? Her character and perks are both pretty lackluster.

can't believe I'm getting into this...

  • Wormwood didn't replace Warbucks
  • Warbucks was removed because Klei didn't like him because his personality and lore was REALLY bland (take a look for yourself https://dontstarve.fandom.com/wiki/Warbucks_quotes)
  • Warbucks' perks weren't bad but they needed a lot more to them
  • Warbucks' art wasn't that great (put him next to Wilson and you will see)

Warbucks' removal was bond to happen his quotes didn't add anything to the character other then proving how much of a generic movie hunter/explorer dude he was. do I think it's sad to see all the hard work gone into him go, yes. do I think it's better that hes gone so a different character with a better personality can take his place, 100% (not talking about Wormwood). if I have learned anything from Klei its that they know what there doing when it comes to character personalities/lore and if they think it's better that hes gone so they can make a character with so much more, THEN LET THEM, your not the one making the game after all and a lot of us got the game for free.

now after playing Wormwood I have to say, Klei... please change some of his quotes so they aren't just "Friend?", even if its just changing the "?" to a "." or "!" other then that he as some good personality to him.

I unfollowed this, and I'm still getting notified. 

It's the gift that keeps on giving!  I'm just here to see how long the "Warbucks War" continues to be strung along...

Nope. That is a character of me that Jeff drew back in 2012 - there is no history or lore as to what is being smoked in it or where it comes from. It's not even technically supposed to be smoke, I think it's supposed to be vapor, I never asked. 

When is Ethan Klein gonna interview you on the h3h3 podcast?:wilson_ecstatic:

I have already explained that earlier in the thread. I am not here to argue, only to explain our thinking on this decision. If you want to have a constructive discussion about the topic, then please do.

I’m normally just a lurker here, but I just wanna say i’m sorry that you have to take this abuse. I personally don’t really care for either side of the debate, but I support the devs in their decision making, and I trust them to do what they think will make the game good. Know that there are those of us that support you, even in this whole mess, either way. Cheers

I would also like to thank Klei and the developers, all their decisions have resulted in this incredible and wonderful game we have today, I am very happy for the warmth we are receiving on the consoles, and I know that it took a lot of effort and dedication from them, thanks to all developers that provide us with this incredible gaming experience, and always count on my support :wilson_love:
