      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. TF2 Tournament Thread

    Alright. I'l send a trade offer to mentlegen to receive the 3 ref back. Next time, I'l try to let you know that I'm entering beforehand.
  2. TF2 Tournament Thread

    I didn't receive the hat for pyro, but I feel that should go to DwerBomb anyways, due to the possibility of winning. As well, I wish to give a ref to 23rd, for the reason being that the fight should have been with Dwer, or patch, and in that case, he might have won. I guess that means that Patch should get something as well? I don't know :/
  3. TF2 Tournament Thread

    So yeah Dwer, I'm so sorry for not realizing that your win wasn't counted. I was honestly confused when my name went up for the finals matches, but I went along with it. I hope you can forgive me for that.
  4. TF2 Tournament Thread

    Oh dear. Didn't realize this mix-up happened. It looks like I did lose then. I'm so sorry Dwer. I already activated the game, but I can give you the 3 ref.
  5. Klei forums community TF2 event.

    I'm reading through this thread currently, and have joined the group. Looking forward to participating with fellow forumers.
  6. Seems like a good idea. The timer would encourage people to play together, as it is in the name of the expansion, so that they can revive each other. IMO, if the people someone is playing with don't think they are worthy of coming back or using a revival product, it's their choice, and a bit of a game of deciding whether ensuring their personal safety or that of the whole. Alternatively as a downside, both players involved in the reviving get a permanent -% of hp. I like your idea more.
  7. I haven't read the whole thread yet, so I don't know if the idea has came up, but I had an idea on how deaths could be implemented, and how players could rejoin. Key components: Meat effigies and touch stones are bound to the player who activates them, with exceptions listed below. Essentially the idea is that when a player dies, with no effigy/stone to revive, he/she drops a skull with their name on it, and cannot join the game until something happens. That something will be that living players could take the skull, and place it on an effigy, to allow the player to rejoin, which uses said meat statue. Of course, there needs to be a downside. Perhaps a cooldown? And maybe when an effigy has a player skull placed on it, the person who placed the skull must make a sort of self-sacrifice, to refill the statue with the life needed to revive the dead player. But hey, it's a magical statue made of meat and wood.
  8. Cannibalism (not a joke this time)

    I actually like this idea. It would be an interesting mechanic, with limits of course.
  9. I.... I ..... Don't know what to think.... This, THIS was not what I would have ever expected, or what anyone would have expected. I..... will see how this turns out. I hope well.
  10. The hotfix for twitch streaming still isn't quite working for me. It still crashes, as stated in the bug report.
  11. Bravo to the Don't Starve team for another glorious update for this glorious DLC! I do have one question to ask the fellow forumgoers, though. Is anyone else having the game crash upon attempting to start a livestream via the broadcast system?
  12. Well, it looks like the cause has lost it's ammunition. I submit. Lock this thread. The revolution has failed....
  13. Good work! Definitely keeping this one...... Or maybe I will switch between that and krampusnaugts. It seems like Edward is no longer Krampus's enemy... Worms are.... Time to edit the 'ole siggy.
  14. Wes. The stories spoken by his invisible bicycle are ones that can be cherished by rich and poor alike!
  15. Worms are ridiculous

    Yeah. In the end, a wave of depth worms can be handled, with preparation. But if you dare to run and escape a cave, or go to ruins, what will be waiting? More depth worms, and more depth worms, and next time, more depth worms. It seems if one wants to consistently visit caves you must have much preparation due to depth worm buildup, or bring rock lobsters into the overworld...... Which leads to infestation if uncontrolled. And remember to clear out any depth worms before leaving... (Personal experiences.) But hey, I'm sure some people can handle that. I'm for the spawn rate nerf train.
