Chinese new year and lunar event

Recommended Posts

Which of the twelve Chinese zodiacs do you have the most expectation to happen at the Don't Starve Together lunar event and what do you think could be implemented in the game during this event?

It may be any year in question, not necessarily the next year that we will receive.

 

English is not my first language so I apologize for the low translation of Google Translate. :(

Depths worm is a pretty solid alternative for snake. But I'll be blunt; it's not a snake.

And honestly, introducing snakes as a mob just for the event would be very anti climactic.

Tell you what I think they should add before year of the snake? The Pugalisk. I think it would be totally at home in dst as a raid boss.

It's a pretty interactive boss as far as don't starve goes as a whole. And having a year using that as the zodiac rep. Much better than a little 100hp snake

*Laughs in carrat*

Carrats were added months before though and they're still a part of the game. I don't think the devs were necessarily thinking they had to add a rat mob on Turn of The Tides just because of the upcoming lunar year, they could've just as easily made the event focus on moleworms or batilisks if they hadn't added carrats. My only qualm is that the event didn't provide the mob with anything permanent after the event; the poor mob is just as open to extinction as ever. I hoped they'd add the carrat race stuf through some other means like submerged treasures and made the mob obtainabe in tbhe critter den; similar to what they did with the Year of the Pig event.

Also, " Year of the Depth Worms" is kind of too long for an event title

Tbh I think they would have added a mob similar to carrats (due to the bull stalks being a melee weapon with far range) if it wasn't year of the rat but they specifically made them a rat for the event. You could be right and this is just my opinion but I don't feel like carrats themselves belong on lunar island. You got crystal spiders, you got pengulls made of ice, you got those cool saladmanders wandering around. Then there's just a carrot. I'm also 99% sure they only chose for it to be a carrot for the pun, but who knows.

Year of the Tiger, for me. Because:

1.  It's my own Chinese Zodiac sign but more importantly

2. KITTIES!!!  :D

Year of the Tigershark would be interesting (and add something else to the sea area) but I'd be fine with catcoons.  Either way it's gonna be an adorable festival.  With teeth and claws. :)

Oh I just noticed, Ox is my Chinese zodiac and it's also the upcoming one. And I'm really excited for it because Beefalos are one of my favorite mobs in the game and they are one of the more engaging ones especially considering the entire domestication mechanics so I'm really excited what they are going to do with them and hopefully the event will bring some permanent stuff for our fellow beefalos. Also, thinking about it it'd be priceless if they add three new contender skins with Fur Warrior Suit theme, would be very topical and look so great. The possibilities are limitless; I just hope it won't be a one & done thing like 3/4 of the chinese new year events so far.
