  1. As far as I am aware, I don't think there's going to be any changes "a la sea of theives" style to drops. They've always been a part of community building and have helped a good number of us build up our brands (myself included). It would be counter to everything we've seen Klei do already, especially being a community focused studio. So as far as I know we shouldn't have anything to worry about right now when it comes to drops being available to everyone who streams and has it enabled. Besides, if that changes, how will I get to have fun dropping large raids on streamers with drops enabled and getting to meet all the new friends I've found?
  2. I have to agree here. Granted there's been no official communication that they're done with the crystalline collection, with everything up on the rewards page + word that we'll be receiving points every week to purchase the combination of Player Icon/Profile Background + Skin it would seem like its the case. Worst case scenario is you collect the points each week, then at the end when drops come back if the collection doesn't resume, just spend your points to buy the ones that didn't activate during the encore.
  3. I'm not entirely sure what all of this is a bug and what is intended behavior. But I figured out on stream the other day that the beefalo skins are not saved if you switch characters at any point on a DST world.
  4. For now I'd say just ignore the duplicates, but thats my personal take on it. The dev's might clarify it further, but you should be ok. As long as you have ONE of the versions that's all that really matters.
  5. Yep, its the same for me. I can re-purchase those same items even though I own them already from previous years. So same logic would apply here it looks like. You'd just be purchasing an alternate version of the same skin.
  6. Ok, while your point on points vs remaining drops is a valid argument here, this has nothing to do with Tencent and completely to do with how Twitch Drops themselves are administered. It looks like Klei is still running off the old drops system that was sunset in August of last year. The last date that, that system works is Feb 21st, 2021 (aka this coming Sunday). So its either stop them now and start working on upgrading to the new system or wait until Sunday and the whole system goes poof. I've already thrown up a quick video on YouTube covering most of this. Twitch Dev Blog Link: https://blog.twitch.tv/en/2020/08/18/available-today-a-new-version-of-drops/
  7. Nah, remember there's a version of the skins from when they first came out (and could be earned) and then a version that you purchase from the rewards page. I'd say open up your game and double check you have a skin before you purchase something. Just to be safe.
  8. This is exciting! Can't wait to see the new system in place. Will be nice to have actual resources to point viewers to so that they know the timing for their drops!
  9. At that point your best bet is to see if you can get it off the market place. Either by giving them the money on their account to purchase it from there OR to buy the skin yourself and gift/trade it to your friend. If the skin isn't available on the marketplace, then the bundle is the only option (assuming its not a weavable skin)
  10. WOOOOOOOOO! *puts on tin foil thinking cap* Time to speculate!
  11. I know there's a lot of panic and knee-jerk reactions to this announcement. So here's my piece on it. Klei HAS ALWAYS shown that they care about us (the community) and it shows in this announcement. "What’s going to change? There are some boring accounting changes that we will need to adjust to. Other than that, I will continue running the studio as before, with no changes to staffing, projects or other operations." They managed to negotiate continued autonomy with TENCENT of all companies. That alone is an accomplishment. Even stating that the two companies have had disagreements in the past but still found mutual ground to move forward on. So that I have to give whoever was involved with those talks Kudos for, because that took some "hot thermal stones" if you know what I mean Now, as for Tencent themselves. Personally, I'm like many, I haven't enjoyed their sudden insertion into most of the games I know and love. BUT honestly for us in the western markets there probably won't be much of a change at all. For Klei though this is huge. Already dipping their toes into the Chinese market this is an even greater opportunity for them and will in turn maybe bring good things for all of us as fans of Klei. So for right now, I say as a consensus, let's put away the pitch forks, drop the F's away back in the boxes and let's give it some time to see what comes from this. I have high hopes for Klei in 2021 and can't wait to see how the roadmap might have changed with this new information/partnership on the books. Keep being awesome over there in the "studio" and you'll still have my continued support! <3
  12. Man, so many things to catch up on this week! Looking forward to testing out the base stuff + all the changes. But like everyone else is saying, ty for listening about the applied horticulture change and finding a middle ground that works for everyone! You guys really are the best!
  13. Yo, ty for the hard work put into this guide. Glermz shared it and made me aware of it. So now my community knows as well. This is what I love about the DST community and new updates. People who create stuff like this!
