      UPDATED - Studio Note & Rhymes with Play Streams Temporarily Canceled.   03/06/2020

      UPDATE (3/19/20): Just a quick note regarding the team at Klei Entertainment. As noted previously, everybody at Klei Entertainment is working from home due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Many of us have been working especially hard to help maintain operations as we all move out of the office and into our homes and with everything being done online, extra time must be spent in organizing conversations and trying to maintain communication. As some of you may know, we have a very open office and we are almost always in contact with each other as we go about our days. Some of us work across multiple teams and that work has become a bit more challenging for everybody.   That being said, at this time the transition has not caused any major disruption in our operations, but it would be overly optimistic to expect that we won't have any delays at all. We're going to have to be especially mindful about this in the coming weeks and make sure we don't take on too much work so we can keep things running smoothly.  We will let you know as we see how these changes affect our timelines.  Thanks UPDATE (3/10/20):
      The test yesterday went well. We got the whole office (mostly) to work from home without significant issue. As a result, Klei Staff that can work from home have been asked to do so until further notice.  This means that we will have to cancel the Rhymes with Play stream until we are all back in the office. This shouldn't affect anything else at least in the short term, but if things change I will update you all here.  Original Post: Hey everybody,  This Tuesday March 10th, 2020 the entire staff at Klei will be working remotely for 1 day in an effort to prepare the studio to work remotely for a little while if the need arises.  Klei is already set up pretty well to allow for working remotely, however we are going to have a one day "dry run" with the whole studio so that we can identify and avoid any issues or downtime that may arise should choose to implement a work from home policy due to COVID-19 outbreak concerns. Unfortunately this does mean that we will be canceling the “Rhymes with Play” Art stream this coming Tuesday, however unless the situation changes we expect everything at the studio to be back to normal Wednesday and we’ll continue our regular stream schedule Thursday March 12th. If the situation changes at all, we'll let you know. Thanks for your understanding.

  1. I'll always be in favor of higher movement speed no matter the character. If only Warly could make coffee though...
  2. Plox Don't Buff Wes

    I have no idea about what you say in half of your posts. There, I said it. Just letting you know. And I'm aware that English isn't your main language.
  3. Plox Don't Buff Wes

    Playing devil's advocate here using the same logic as yours, some players completely ignore Woodie's forms and just use his axe, Wurt's King and even merms, Wormwood's crafting, Wilson's beard for crafting, Warly's dishes, Wicker books, that's maybe because they find those things too grindy, not that useful, not that fun or whatever else. Maybe that's why "no one seems to agree with you on this". Klei could easily keep Wes the same, but give the choice to the player to make him harder to survive while giving him something in return for that added difficulty.
  4. Glass Canon Wes

    Might as well press alt+f4 if you're gonna play that way, right? Edit:brain farted myself I'm speaking mostly for Wes mains, since I know they wouldn't be content with that play style. But there will always be babysitters, no matter what character.
  5. Glass Canon Wes

    In ONI dupes can put balloons on others to buff their stats (looking at you, movement speed). Wes could do that in exchange of his (max) stats. The more balloons he puts on others the weaker he gets, maybe you can even stack 3 balloons on a single person. All balloons still explode when they get hit, taking 5 damage for each balloon you have, can be mitigated by armor. No, he can't use the balloons on himself nor to other Wes or you could for aesthetics reasons but don't get anything from it. And it deflates after 3 or 5 days, dunno. This will still keep Wes a challenge character but if you want to use his full potential as a team you'll need to put yourself at risk, which better conveys his "has trouble staying alive" description in-game. At the same time, if you use the perk to someone that don't know how to kite it becomes useless for battle but still useful to those that are only gathering materials.
  6. Run then kill one by one. With hounds it can take quite a while to make them lose aggro on you or unload them from your screen.
  7. I used to not ban people that deserves it at first, I would just put them on a blacklist and grief when I saw them again, usually after they worked on something that takes time to make, so they see what a pain it is to be griefed. Only after I was content I would ban them from the server. When it's just easy to hop on to another server, better take some measures yourself to send a message to those people. I stopped doing that just because I don't run a server anymore.
  8. Most players don't use the forum either. Plus, there are plenty of suggestion in here on how to make things in DST harder, not easier, so making guides for basic things isn't that helpful here and spamming those guides for every little thing in DST makes it worse. But if you want to make an in depth guide on surviving in a single thread you're welcomed. There are plenty of those already, but eh, if you want to discuss about it there is nothing stopping you from making it.
  9. If that's correct then either they should buff Wigfrid later or tweak Wendy now. ___________ Let that sink in. Source:
  10. This reminded me of Yoshi and it's eggs, throwing spiders when? jk
  11. I personally would prefer for Klei to focus more on Webber himself and not so much on his spiders. But I have no idea what they could do for him.
  12. With Wilson beard at full you don't even need winter gear, leaving a slot free from thermal or hat. Willow's lighter has better use for cooking (monster) meat or setting a tree on fire, don't use it for light if you can, make a torch or lantern for that. Now you have around 80 cooked meat worth of a single item considering you might lose some of it setting trees on fire. Woodie can be OP early game (if in public server you join later), he doesn't need flint to get more flint, just whack some spiders with Lucy and transform to beaver to get flints. But you could get flints from birds with others. Woodie is the best for sea exploring with goose, but also to make a boat and live there safely, if you need to go to land without exposing your boat to other players you can transform to goose. The best characters to join in Winter are Wicker, Woodie and Willow. The first doesn't need 5 gold to make a thermal. The second has the above, some free insulation and even more insulation when transformed, the third has a way to warm herself up if you can't find grass and twigs. If you don't mind the sanity drop from wetness you can be wet as Wurt as long as you have a thermal stone, winter gear or is near summer. Also, you can make merms to guard your berries for winter, can't have a king for this.
  13. Can someone test what mobs Abigail can't kill with Wendy at 100% health?
  14. About that...
