If it is 20 seconds, then it is a problem. Could just increase them to more days if they still want to continue with these respawning touchstones.

true it will make the game easier

Might as well have a challenge where you can never eat, can never use healing items, can't sleep, can't use armor, can't use torches, lanterns, fire-pits, campfires, miners hats, and moggles. Instead you can only use revives.

Hey all, thanks for the discussion! I've updated the original post to describe the touchstone behaviour more clearly:

"Touch Stones can be used once per player. After a short period, it will regenerate and become available once again to other players.

Hope that's more clear.

But those 20 seconds of are irrelevant because you won't be able to use that one touchstone again. It's supposed to be short for the next player who dies.

The update says "Touch Stones will now regenerate after a very short time, and each Touch Stone is usable once per player " yet somehow people are complaining about how "Respawn is LITERALLY INFINITE now!".

I have no idea how one thing is even close to the other.

Edit: Thank you lpsquiggle for making it even more clear for everyone. It would be great if someone left the patch notes in the OP, It's like nobody followed the link...

I was gonna say how OP this was but then i saw it said it only works once for each player... That's actually pretty fair.

The real problem about this is people just camping near a touchstone. They wont have to worry about death at all. The worst is they'll have to wait is *GASP* a whole 20 seconds or if hounds are near their corpse.

They won't be able to do that, each of the players can only use that touchstone once. Read the update notes! ;-)

I actually like this change, but I think the time span before respawning should be increased to several days at least or maybe players even should have to do something to achieve a respawn.

EDIT: Maybe even a task that can only be executed by multiple players? Since this is a multiplayer game? :)

Sorry, I didnt read the once per player part until just now... If that's what happens, then it's not very big like everyone saying it is... I mean, I guess you can get, like, 2 free revivals a server, but you have to find those touchstones first (which can get very boring) and you're dead anyways so you have to go back and collect your stuff. Even with all the stuff you can do as ghost i dont think this update is that OP.

Oh boo hoo. Set your own challenges in multiplayer if it is that easy.

Tweak the world settings to what you want if you want your sever to be a walk in the park.

Uhh. I think everybody with 1k+ hours such as myself and @Clwnbaby do. Lets refrain from attacking each other please. 

Great. Then you and clwnbaby can join forces and storm the multiplayer servers armed with nothing but torches! Also not everyone is able or willing to put 1000 hours in a game. How am I "attacking" again?

its not the responsibility of the gamer to make a game hard, its the responsibility of the game developer to make it hard.  If a gamer wants a hard game and the developer doesn't make one, the gamer doesn't play it.  This game started hard and has gotten easier over time, not due to an increasing rise in skill but because the developer made it easier (this being the case recent case for newer players).  Also by your backwards logic, If you want an easier game create you own easy world in custom world creation.

Play the default world. If you find it difficult, make it easier. If you find it easy, turn the difficulty up a notch or set challenges for yourself. Not everyone buying and playing the game is as hardcore as you are.

If Klei wants to make it a hard game, they can do it. If they don't want to, then so be it.

Just stop it with all the whining.

^ what Clwn said + you can still learn and get better in game but we cant make bigger challenges and also really soon you will be "one of those" guys saying that game is easy after you learn few things in game. DST is actually easier than ROG and you can play with other people thats why it is so easy and thats why we mention it all the time. I hope tho that this will change TTA

TTA should be about late game. Beginners and those players that needs these updates wont be getting past 1 year that easily so there is no point of making TTA easy or even "medium" so logically this should be focused for advanced/experienced players .)

Nice assumption. How do you know how much I have or haven't played? Or what my opinion of the game's difficulty is?

Don't Starve WAS a hard game.  It was an Uncompromising Wilderness Survival Game that was ACTUALLY challenging and people kept "whinning" it was too hard and they made it easier.  Your complaints and arguments all work against you.  The veteran players are asking for their game back


The veterans want their rights! This is becoming a bit cringe inducing. Remind me, when was Don't Stave a hard game?

Guys, let's just all focus on the Patch notes discussion. There are newbies and there are seasoned players who actually make it to and thorugh the first winter :p Anyone can play DST the way they want, discussion is about game changes, not personal or group approaches to playing the game.

You feel angry/triggered/opressed by cyberbully hardc0r3s or filthy casuals? Drink a cup of cold water, take 10 deep breaths or pause for a moment. There! You can contribute to the discussion again! :)

Let's make our beloved game better. I believe this will bring us all much more satisfaction than puny rhetoric wins over another Don't Starver. Value your own energy and spend it on things you actually care bout.

Cheers!

IMO, this ghost status already made the game too easy. I mean if there was no ghost status, everyone got their touchstone is fine, actually klei can make such kind of mode too where dying is perma-death except touchstones(no new char selection so you will be completely eliminated) (so everyone can be resurrected from touchstones twice)-(seriously this cave touch stones should be removed too, i mean who makes only caves server? no touchstone is needed there.). for survival, where being ghost is the part of the game, i think being ghost is already kind of nerfing the game and another nerf is about personal touchstone not only that but also cave touchstones.. So in long term there is no difference of survival than other modes. Also this new recipe of booster shot in which you need 8 rot, 2 nitre, 1 stinger. Seriously what is this? even my granny can make this recipe in 2 secs even though she has never used windows... you made dst a granny friendly game. Finally my granny is happy. thanks klei.
