If you were an active follower of the Hamlet subforum 1-2 years ago, you probably know me for being one of the folks that were angry with Warbucks' removal. I were holding the grudge about it for very long time, untilI decided to look for JoeW's post in which he tells why they removed Warbucks, because I forgot the reason behind this decision.
I found this post.
And all I understood was "Warbucks is too boring, so we remove him". This awakened my old rage. I told myself "I was right! There was no good reason behind Warbucks' removal!", but then I scrolled down a little bit and found that post.
And it made me think. [...]at this point he carries a lot of baggage[...] really struck me. That's true, Warbucks does carry a lot of baggage - prior to Tencent buying Klei revelation, Warbucks was probably the only that big of a fuss in Klei's Don't Starve forum history. He really is controversial (but not because he had some quotes referencing colonism) and there is no good answer to this whole situation.
So now I understand why we never got Warbucks back - Klei is afraid of making anything with him because of assumptions their actions would create. And that's understandable, even if regrettable.
And yes, maybe it took me a lot of time to get it, but finally I am at peace - and that's what matters.
