Wait seriously no drops or update today? Well that's super lame..

Thought the new drop system was good till now, now I hate it ha

There's always "next week". I also thought the Nautical collection will have consecutive drops - when one ends, another begins. Aka after Nautical Smite'ning Rod drop rolled 2 weeks, beginning with March 25, new Nautical Seashells Salt Box skin (added to game files by Wes's update) would roll for another 2 weeks, beginning with April 8. That's not the case it seems. And is ok. Now there's more credence to the fact new "Return of Them" Beta will be rolled out somewhere between mid-to-end of April (hopefully), most likely date coinciding with said new Nautical Seashells Salt Box rolling out as well - presumably they need more time working on Beta update, and perhaps that's the reason Twitch drops aren't consecutive at the time. Or perhaps not. We'll see.

These drops are free everyone please understand this takes time and effort for a company to pay hours to create and publish drops. 

We do not have any other ways to get those skins before. It means they are more rare then other skins that you could pay. Many friends I know want to buy it directly instead of watching the stream. KLei points is an improvement now.

@JoeW haters gonna hate. Don't let them bug you - you guys are doing great and while sure it was fun getting new skins every week, anything at all is just icing on top of a great game. Keep up the good work!

My apologies for the confusion here. It's entirely my fault.

Previously I had said that the campaign "would only last 2 weeks" which was meant to mean "2 weeks, and not continuously" and I did not that get across correctly. I'm sorry for that. 

But to be clear - Everything we are doing right now with drops is still technically in an experimental phase. Next set of drops will likely work a bit different with who will be doing those drops. I need time to process this last 2 weeks of drops and adjust and we're working on that now. 

 

It's our, community and streamers, fault too. Our expectations deceived us. Thank you for this statement and keep up the good work. :wilson_vforvictory:

Notice how most of those super negative comments are coming in quick succession, from accounts that never wrote a comment before? Along with their apologies after the explanation. Just saying.

Anyway, as much as I was looking forward to the new drop yesterday, I can see how it was never promised that there would always be an active drop. Looking forward to the next one!

Guys, stop pointing negative, you are given free skins just for watching streams,this is a normal drop drop mechanic, almost all games have such mechanics.You should support the developers and not hayat because you were not given a new drop.Thank you so much Joew for these two weeks, I hope it will only get better in the future!:love_heart:

Somehow I only got the icon? On Twitch it kept saying there was an error for me :( Was I supposed to select "claim" every couple hours?

Yes. Now you have to claim rewards to be able to get next one.

Klei could literally end the drops and i would still be grateful for the amazing game we have to play, as well as all the support we got over all this time.

It's amazing how people can whine and cry over something that is given for free. :wilson_hurt:

It's so funny to see that people think the game is ruined just because of the Drops.
The lack of drops does not spoil the game, this is just a bonus that can be obtained quite easily. And they put a lot of work into their creation, be patient.
Thanks for your efforts! :wilson_love:

Caress your head now and there is no point in complaining in the future, or do you think this will be the first and last change? I'm just giving my opinion of already knowing a company like Tencent

I really don't see what the problem is.

If you're gonna be all "Dead game lol" or "i CoNDemN yOu" because Klei isn't constantly shoving extra content in your face, go be toxic in some other community.

It's Just a skin and for an item I do'nt see 90% of the time in any world. Let's wait and chill out, I got kinda scared seeing so much negativity just because of a drop.

@JoeW Thanks Joe, we are a very strong community and most of us understand the large amount of effort you have put into moving drops, changing drops and making the system work better and right for everyone. 

The only feedback I would like to add is similar to what @ladylz had said. Can we have an area for people to watch some streams or even the Klei stream to still get the drops. I have seen multiple post from multiple users that the following happened: Error on twitch, unable to claim 2 or 3rd at any time. new system was confusing for some. Myself and others did our best to explain in each stream how the system works and that you had to claim them after you got the 1st one. I would just ask that you provide a way for those to get them until the next one is out. This way you will have continued viewership over the whole time.

If you offer for 2 weeks and then not for 2 weeks you will see a dip in the community because if someone missed one or all of them they will be disinterested and wait for the next set of drops. 

 

I am also asking because I am on Console and I have only a few options to get drops for console and steam. 

1. I can get them on one system unlink then re link my account to my steam account then get them again thats 12 hours

2. I can make a second account and use a secondary device to get them thats 6 hours if I am in the streams and paying attention. 

The 1st option is the honest option but I will say after trying it I had to reset all the passcodes and was just a pain to get done. The second option is inflating the numbers and I don't even know if you're ok with it. 

I know the why behind why I cant get drops on both a company lets just call them _ONY probably missing a letter there or something. I know they want all the $$$$ for skins. I am not afraid to say it i have been playing DST since it came out and I love supporting you its a game i truly love. I have spent over $200 on skins. I have spent countless hours playing your games. They have gotten me the much needed selfcare from my work. I just would like to slowly start building my skins on Steam because I will want them when I start playing on there. 

I am giving you more information than you need but I want you to know it because the community loves your drops you can see with the amount of disappointment some have when they are gone. Also I share because I want to be honest and see if you have a better solution for someone like me. If I had the ability to link both accounts and get them on both I would be more than willing to use one account to get drops even if it took me 12 hours. Because I want them. 

 

Again thank you for all that you do I know you have so much to do and have so much work ahead of you. This community is the reason I will never leave. Also your game is pretty amazing. Have a great day and good luck. Thank you for providing more specifics.

I think it’s the Base designs people whine about, People tune in to these twitch streams not to watch or support any one individual streamer... but to earn skins for their game, skins that help them to better customize the appearance of their belongings, structures, characters etc..

Klei obviously knows most people only tune in for the free skin drops- Otherwise we would only be allowed to watch one streamer rather than watching multiple over the 6 hours required.

Me personally: I wouldn’t mind paying for the skins I want & skipping the twitch system altogether.

But: You can’t argue with free content for minimal effort, And- If you want the skins before they’re put on Klei rewards or whatever this is the way you must get them early.

If Klei removed the Twitch drops completely: They would just release these skins in a different way- Paid bundles, Rewards page, bundle them with Klei Store item purchases etc.. 

I enjoy the customization to my worlds that the twitch drops bring, without a combination of twitch drops & purchased skin sets my worlds wouldn’t be nowhere near as fun.

And believe it or not: Some people actually do like skins- pretty sure that’s the ENTIRE REASON Beefalo customization remained in the game after its respective event ended.
