  • C'mon, let's face it; we've all had some pretty crazy things happen to us when playing these games. More often than not those things have devestated us and lessened our chance for survival. And sometimes you just wanna get it off your chest and vent about it. So I'm making this thread so we can all share our various dumb experiences so we can look back, laugh, and hopefully never do it again. I'll start.

    One time in DST I was hunting Koalephants to get their trunks for vests for me and my pals when some dude who didn't speak English joined the server. He seemed harmless enough, so we showed him our camp so he wouldn't die since winter was only a few days away. After an unsuccessful hunt I returned to camp to deposit what little food I'd foraged into the icebox. The guy had kooked and eaten almost all of the trunks I'd collected. Quite fed up, I drew my blowdart and fired. Unfortunately one of my friends was close by and got auto-targeted.

    Who wants to go next?

    • A little while ago, in my main Don't Starve world, I was befriending the Bunnymen near my base like normal so that they would attack their friends, and I would take the loot. I checked to make sure I did not have any meat on me, but it turns out I had Pig Skin on me and didn't notice. While they were busy dealing with the spiders in my spider farm I befriended one. After they were done I told mine to attack a Bunnyman and they killed him very quickly. Before I could tell him to kill another, they turned on me, and I died. I was then resurrected by my Meat Effigy and killed all of the Bunnymen at dusk. It took me awhile until I didn't hate them...about 400 days.

      Before that one, in Don't Starve Together, a friend of mine and I had these people join our server during winter. One had a torch (WX-78) and was burning some things down while coming to our base. I thought that they might have been freezing so I let it go. When at our base he said something like, "THE END OF MANKIND IS NIGH." He burned most of the base down and was eating everything in our Ice Box as quickly as possible. This was on a Non-PVP server mind you, so I couldn't even kill him myself. Angered and desiring revenge, I spawned in a Deerclops right behind him and it one-shotted him. He had eaten red caps and monster meat from the Ice Box so he was on lower health than normal. Then I killed the Deerclops and the guy left. Good thing we were already cheating and that I know how to cheat.  :)

    • I was really lucky with my world. There was a pig king right next to some hound mounds so this is how i survived: I harvested the tumbleweeds, tumbleweeds gave me gravedigger items, gave them to the pig king, got gold, made battle spear and helmet (i was Wigfrid), killed some hounds, got monster meat, gave it to the pigs and battleled the hounds so i could get more monster meat, gave them the meat so they followed me longer, walked to the magma pools and let the pigs burn to death(and please don't say i am a terrible person, i don't like it to but those grilled ribs are just to tasty you know?) and BOOM fresh delicious porkchop. But once the pigs didn't gave two shits and ran away cuz they pussies(it became dusk). So the hounds attacked me and i didn't have a torch or the materials to make one (stupid i know). So i got backstabbed by charlie, i deserved it.

    • I was out on my quest to get all the teleportato items (this was day 50 something)It had turned summer and I was barely making it alive (thanks trees and endo Fire) I probably should have turned back but after seeing a bush go on fire(my first time) I was scared to go back (I didn't have a ice fling o matic ) so I kept going I traveled even during the night I even found maxwells door I just toyed with it anyway I was burning down trees for light and it burned the spider nests as well then in the morning I started hurrying looking for the materials but a spider started to fight me and I was overheating, and guess who won...the spider,anyway that's why I don't play don't starve that much anymore...

    • The DST server I was playing on was full of Webbers, so the main base was close to a big nest of spiders. Hounds got me and a couple of others, so all our stuff was on the floor while we waited to be revived. I was bored, so I decided to randomly haunt a spider gland, ignoring the months of experience that I had to never haunt anything as a ghost. Of course, it caught fire the second I haunted it, and the gland set fire to another person's dropped inventory, and then the fire spread to someone else's items, and then the resulting conflagration engulfed the whole base. Somehow, my inventory was wholly unaffected out of every other person's items. I quit the server in thorough shame after that...

    • World 2, Day 873:

      First day of summer, I tear down my Meat Effigy so I can set one up in my cave base. Then I realize I need more Beard Hair. So I grab my Nightmare Amulet and head over to my Rabbit Hutches. I aggro them and lead them into my tooth traps, but don't realize until it's too late that I had neglected to reset my tooth traps after the last hound attack. The beardlings corner me and destroy me. No effigy, no touchstone. Goodbye, world.

    • On the XBOX One, I turned on the Snap App while there was a Queens Gathering after me (which is the set piece of like a million spiders if I'm correct) and it took me out of the game. I had to watch what I had gathered over the course of about 125 days just fall onto the ground.

      Maybe I should start making Meat Effigys.

    • So it was Winter, and some dude had joined my server. He didn't seem harmful, so I showed him my base, since it was Winter. Later, a Deerclops spawned, and he went up to the giant, and sent it to my base. I think you can figure out what happened next....

    • My friend (the same one I killed with a blow dart) had a really awesome server once; three bee boxes, a tent, a bird cage, about five improved farms, huge grass, twig, and berry farms, and a small lureplnt farm, almost completey surrounded in stone walls with tooth traps at all the entrances and he'd even given the place the "Maxwell aesthetic". Unfortunately, he was working on a mod at the time, and he accidentalled messed up the game. The server was lost.

    • This thread has so many sad stories on it.  ;_;

    • I was playing Wickerbottom and a Wigfrid on the server wanted to kill a clockwork rook near the base for a Flingomatic. They told me to summon a bunch of tentacles, which I did. The rook went over the tentacles, but it aggro'd to me and charged just out of the tentacles' range, so the tentacles didn't deal any damage. Then the Wigfrid hit the rook a couple of times and it died, so I didn't actually need to summon the tentacles and waste all of my sanity. I started back to the base, but accidentally went over the tentacles and almost died. Then I got killed by a shadow monster at the base with one hit in the middle of healing.

    • So . . . the moral of this thread is: never play as Wickerbottom?

      The moral of the story is to always remember where you "plant" your tentacles =p

    • One time I was playing on one of my servers with a friend and we were preparing for Summer. He'd left to go find some resources like grass and rocks 'cause we'd exhausted the supply by the base. Somehow a DEERCLOPS had spawned. On the last day of Spring. I thought he was pulling my leg when he told me until I saw it myself. We spent the night fighting it and dying.

      I guess that was "payback" of sorts for it not showing up on the last day of Winter after it had spawned in his server.

      Nope. I never mess with Giants in WorldGen; you either don't get enough resources(especially when playing with others) or they wreck everything. I guess it was just a bug.

      Nope. Didn't feel a need to at the time. Besides, that happened last summer so they probably fixed it already.

      All 3 of us died...me...my friend...and the frog...
