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.
