      [UPDATED] Physical Megapack Disc Issues   04/16/2018

      Update 5/11/2018 We do not have any more information at this time. The last we spoke to 505 indicated that the discs should be ready very soon. We will likely have more information next week; hopefully with full explanation of when and how to get new discs.    Updated: 4/27/2018

      On April 17th, the Don't Starve Megapack was released. Almost immediately, it was discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). The disc contained Don't Starve Together, but was without Don't Starve, Reign of Giants and Shipwrecked. As soon as we confirmed the problem we contacted our retail publisher to find out how this happened and what could be done. It's taken some time to get this far, but this is all the information we have at this time. The current status of the issue is as follows: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks.  When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc previous to 4/26/2018 can now contact Klei support HERE for a Playstation Store voucher code that includes Don't Starve Together, Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC that you can play now. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  New purchasers of the Megapack in store as of 4/26/2018 should be given a voucher at the time of purchase on your receipt. If you do not get a code, contact us ALL purchasers will have a path to get a new disc when they are ready. We do not have details at this time, but we are comitted to ensuring that all players get what they purchased.  We are hearing from some players that some retailers are telling players that they will not be exchanging discs. We believe this to be incorrect and that particular person or location is just misinformed. 505 has ensured us that they are doing their best to make sure these discs are being replaced for all players. We will not allow anybody to fall through the cracks here. We will buy and ship the discs ourselves if we have too.   This was our first major retail release and we're extremely disappointed that our players have been let down with their purchase of the Don't Starve Megapack. We're doing our best to make sure this issue gets resolved as quickly as possible. Thanks everybody for your support and patience. We'll keep you updated.    UPDATE: (4/26/2018) We are now ready to send out vouchers to players who purchased the physical version of the Don't Starve Megapack - These codes will allow players to download and play Don't Starve and DLC as well as Don't Starve Together To get a voucher players can contact as at our support site: http://support.kleientertainment.com/customer/portal/emails/new  For the subject, choose "PS4 Megapack" and fill in the form and we'll get you fixed up as soon as possible.  We will require a picture of your receipt, your Klei account ID and the region you are located in (so we can give you the proper voucher).  UPDATE: (4/24/2018) Earlier this week, we discovered that the wrong content was printed on the PS4 retail version of Don’t Starve Mega Pack (the Xbox One version is not affected). It’s a really unfortunate situation and we’ve been working hard with 505 to resolve this as soon as possible. Below is the latest information: New copies are currently in print and will be on shelves ASAP, hopefully within a few weeks. When the new discs arrive in stores, players who already purchased misprinted discs will be able to exchange the disc for a new one in store. Details will follow as we figure out the exact timing, the procedures with specific retailers and what the exchange will entail.  Players who already purchased the faulty disc will also be able to contact Klei support for a voucher code that includes Don't Starve, Shipwrecked and the Reign of Giants DLC until the new disc is ready. Please specify your country as certain vouchers only work in certain regions.  We will have more details when they become available including details on contacting us and what information we might need.  Once again, thanks to everybody for their patience while we work this out.

  2. Yeah, but the thing is, outside of the realm of 'them' which we play in, the only magic we see in the real realm is dark magic from the codex umbra. No confirmation of any other magic, and including too much of it might make the story feel cheesier. They could pull a Webber (He's a demon or she's a witch in this realm because X), but I doubt they're going to be added. Demons who only exist in the realm of "them", who we can assume exist because Maxwell created them. Every playable character's origin, as we know of, starts outside of the DS world, where these demons don't exist (as far as we know).
  3. I don't think Wortox or Waverly are ever going to get in, considering how lore-heavy the game is, how would they fit? Besides, Maxwell's Halloween skin is very close to Wortox in design.
  4. You can access the dab emote in-game if you know how to use console commands. Some more evil-inclined hosts can even force the whole server to dab.
  5. I remember seeing it on a youtube video at one point, the game had a very unique art style and it caught my attention. The problem I had with DS was that I'm not a huge fan of singleplayer games, and prefer games where I can play with others. So, I did buy DS back in 2012 I think, played it some, and then managed to get into the closed beta of DST pretty damn early. I had a good time, and then I learned how to mod the game, and since then it's been my go-to for messing around with concepts and practicing programming ever since, along with the fun I have playing with other folks.
  6. Giggity giggity goo!
  7. tier lists

    I mean, to be on-topic, I'd tier them as: SS - Wickerbottom S - Wolfgang, WX-78 (SS Tier for both if Wickerbottom is in team comp) A - Wigifrid, Maxwell B - Webber C - Woodie, Wendy D - Winona F - Wilson, Willow Not Applicable - Wes This list is based solely on what utility their specific powers bring to the table. Wes is meant to be a hard-mode character, so I can't really rate him here, but utility-wise he'd be lower than F - tier.
  8. Good that you guys are on tops of this, thanks for the heads up.
  9. I've played on a lot of different servers, with a lot of different people. Never met anyone who could at the very least survive Winter say Woodie and Willow are fine as they are. If Klei needs proof, put a survey linked in-game to let people share their opinions, and then we'll see how people feel.
  10. Honestly, I feel everyone can agree on the idea that all the characters should be fun in their own respective ways, and then balance should be second priority. I feel "true balance" can be worried about after all the characters get their individual issues fixed of being "not fun" to a large majority of active and retained playerbase. Once again, this really falls on Willow, Woodie, and Winona, with the Shadow Duelist being a part of Maxwell who otherwise is a great harvester. To be frank, I don't care if Maxwell is better than Woodie at chopping trees, as Woodie in DS really wasn't all that efficient at chopping trees as a human. After all, he didn't eat any of his produce, but he did turn into a beaver with less effort. To me, the beaver was always Woodie's big thing, and what drew in a lot of people to him was the Werebeaver, is very likely the most unique perk in the game, at least by my standards. Now, they made the Werebeaver bad, and all that's left is the lumberjack side, which is fine and all, but the complete package is ruined because the werebeaver is so brutally punishing to players who'd like to use it for more than 2~ or less minutes, and no rewards are to be reaped. Willow's main thing was her fire immunity, which gave her access to a lot of strats which nobody else could utilize, but now it's gone, so what made her really special was just removed entirely, very likely due to "griefing concerns". Funny thing is, anyone can make a torch, and even worse, anyone can use the Werebeaver to smash your base without a hammer (and then die to 3+ terrorbeaks you couldn't see at dusk because it's in a dark forest) so the argument doesn't really stand anymore. Winona was never good, rather, just squandered potential of what could've been a really cool and new character. Duelist is just useless, but Maxwell himself is pretty alright overall, so it's not so bad, whereas Werebeaver nerf ruined half of Woodie's package, the Duelist is only about 20% of Maxwell's, so it doesn't hamper him as much. Overall, Klei needs to do what they do best and look at the fun factor here, and tune these characters up. They just need some love and I don't think anyone will complain if Klei gives them a little sugar for all they've been through.
  11. I actually agree with DarkXero here, the elitism of this community isn't only fueled by characters, but rather a lot of things, such as base-building, farming, and other things. If you take the leg they stand on, they'll build a whole new one and beat you over the head with it regardless.
  12. I don't think they'll be touching the meta 3 (Wolfgang, Wickerbottom, WX78) anytime soon, solely because of how how much salt it'd bring. Do those characters deserve it? Yeah, they trivialize the game with extremely strong pros and cons which hinder them very little (example being Wolfgang's sanity problem, where he overcomes the problem by easily beating the nightmare creatures with double damage) and they're literally so far from the other characters in terms of balance it's ridiculous. However, if the focus is about being fun and not balance, they're extremely fun to play and I'd hate for any of them to get the Woodie/Willow treatment. Instead, they should focus on the one's people are complaining about (Woodie, Willow, Maxwell's Duelist and maybe Winona) and getting them to at least a fun status for a majority of players before looking at anything else.
  13. Thank you for responding, it means a lot to us to hear the big guys up-stairs on the matters every so often, last response to a balance discussion like this might've been two years ago or so. What we're asking for isn't an entire re-balance or anything like that, what most people want really are just small tweaks which Klei certainly has done before. For example, when Woodie came out, his Werebeaver form was later updated to have weather resistance and 25% damage reduction, for example. Plus, there was all those (albeit subpar in many people's eyes) tweaks you guys made to Willow over time, we just want that again. Willow is bad, Werebeaver mode is bad, Duelists are too, and the to really fix the main gripe people have with them is to just make small tweaks. We don't need some crazy, game-wide rebalance of everything, but small quality-of-life fixes would definitely help the experience. It's probably not the issue of balance that people have problems with (WX, Wicker, and Wolfgang literally out-do everyone else by a huge margin it's not even funny), but it's that these characters aren't fun. For example, Willow doesn't have a lot of what made her fun in DS, and there's been many great posts about it which you guys could look at (I personally didn't play her much, I can't speak for them) which point out small tweaks that could be made. Werebeaver form is just extremely lackluster as a mechanic because the fun that tied into using Werebeaver form was completely stripped from the DS version (for good balance reasoning), but nothing was given to it for compensation except for some bland Woodie perks. Finally, Duelists are so limited in scope to be used as a tool that nobody bothers with it, because they're almost certain to die. There's a lot of balance issues, but fun is what I believe sparked people to call for possible tweaks. In the end, it's your game, and I agree with your statement about modding as well. But, if you'd look, you'll see how many mods have been made to rebalance Willow and Woodie, and I think it speaks for itself, truly. I really hope you guys consider it, and don't be afraid to take community feedback. You guys could even have a poll linked in-game if you wanted, so you could let everyone speak their opinion. As someone else said before, silence isn't acceptance, all those people probably harbor some opinion or another. Almost everyone I've talked says the same about Woodie and Willow, so I think if you ask your playerbase directly to possibly vote on this, I think you could get a clearer picture.
  14. Actually, there's been more, but certainly not as noticeable. The werebeaver received tuning when Woodie was released, and Willow received multiple updates. Also note that they and other characters were modified before being put into DST.
  15. Dude, I've been playing primarily Werebeaver/Woodie and I've made at least 4 posts solely on the matter of getting Klei to make the character fun again. I've gotten a lot of commentary from a lot of people over that time, usual result is people want change for Woodie, Willow, and maybe Winona. Klei people responded to the first one, never got anything afterwards. I really want them to rework Werebeaver to be useful/fun, but I've accepted his fate as trash at this point.
