When Players Ask Where is Base

Recommended Posts

Halfway through Winter, 5 new players spawn in and immediately ask where is base. Something about the way they are talking and joking, makes me suspect that they are a group of griefers (at least part of them).

So at first, I tell them to wait at portal and I'll come to pick them up. I don't do that and I hope the cold kills them off. They ask "Are you close?" and I tell them "I´m nearly there", when really I´m just chilling at base.

Unfortunately, they don't die and they keep asking where is base, getting angrier by the second.

Plan B.

I make my way to Portal to meet them. They've made a fire pit and have been surviving somehow near Portal. I lead the way to base. At least that's what I tell them, what I actually do is lead them the exact opposite way, into the middle of nowhere. 

Night approaches and I find a perfect place to set camp...I set a campfire right next to a Gigantic Beehive. The minute that night hits, I hammer the Beehive, awakening the bee queen, and then I run away with a torch. 

Literally, in less than a minute, everyone dies. 

So....Plan Beeeeeee worked great ;)

So they managed to get a pickaxe and rocks, plus logs to make a fire pit in that short amount of time, or was a firepit already provided for them? Either way, they knew how to survive somewhat... though not as good as walking into the cold to make a living kind of deal yet...

...

Or you probably sent innocents to their dooms... O__O <3

ummmmm

A group of trollers came on. Like 5 of 'em.

They started a vote kick (so before the latest update) but were unsuccessful. We kicked them all off but they came back on. We did this 2 more times, but they were pretty resilient. So we just let 'em on.

*WHERES BASE*

*psst*

Nobody cares

And thus summer came.

They were still alive 'cuz they just so happened to know how the game worked and had built a small little base of their own near the portal.

And I was like;

Ok you got a base stop asking

*Spoilers*

Spoiler

They kept asking anyways

So this was mind-to me. They had just survived 15 days in their own makeshift base and they still wanted to know where the base was.

*sigh*

So, we did what we had to do.

Bring them into the caves and lure them into the ruins.

They somehow survived the nightmare cycle TWICE.

Now I was just mind-blown.

I came down to the ruins to see they were expertly farming nightmare fuel and ancient items.

So I guess they'd make a nice addition to the team?

And it's autumn now.

We finally let them into our base. I venture out to find them super-duper exceling. Aaaaand they had a Houndius Shootius.

By this time, we decided to ditch our base and move in with them.

Now that's a happy ending.

Except it wasn't, because they held a grudge against us for never showing base.

Toadstool made sure they never acted up again.

I didn't think of that. I'm assuming now the fire pit was already there, cause the closest stones were pretty far away.

@TheKingOfSquirrels Why did you kill 'em? Couldn't you give them a shot and thrust them then rollback 1 day if they really where griefers (except if it's a dedicated MB)?

When I host a game, I just make a base by the portal.  I make a firepit, alchemy engine, treasure chest full of tools (pickaxes, axes, and torches), a crockpot, and low cost season items (winter hat, thermal stone, straw hat, and umbrella).  This is so that they can have their own base and leave me alone.  I always check by the base to make sure it's in good condition and to maybe add some stuff to it.

Troll them before they can even troll you?

Impressive. Not in a good way though.
