xnoybis Posted October 30, 2014 Share Posted October 30, 2014 Just wondering if anyone finds the wolves situation getting out of hand a little bit?I love 95% of the new update to bits, major improvements on all fronts, except for that 5% being wolves stalking every corner.I started in the new region, quite a bit from the coastal town, managed to evade one or two wolves on my way there.Once there though I started going house to house scavenging. And I found myself being forced to spend day or two at each house just waiting for the coast to be clear again (no gun). I've had 3-4 wolves in sight at the same time on a number of occasions and quite often I would find two wolves just waiting right outside the house (got attacked and killed by two not two steps from the door). I would then perform a tactical retreat, harvest or forage inside, take a nap, check again. Sometimes it seemed like they haven't even moved. I would eventually see a chance and go for it and find a wolf running at me when I'm half way from the next house. I managed to clear 4 or 5 houses but paid for it with a wolf attack almost every single time (flares don't make much of a difference anymore). Now I have no antiseptic left and any long-term plans I might have had at the beginning of the play-through are now out the window (even if I have plenty of antibiotics). One thing I found surprising is the amount of food and supplies in that town. I can pretty much afford to live off whatever I find in the houses for probably close to two weeks. Still, I'd like to go exploring this new beautiful region, but it seems I'm starring in the new Predator movie as the main course.If I can use this slightly daft analogy, I'd hate for this game to go from Don't Starve (or Freeze) to Wolfenstein 3D - a wolf evasion/combat simulator I considered the game's main theme to be scarcity and urgency, now after few hours playing it seems like it's a wolf apocalypse - it may just as well be a balancing issues and I hope so, as I'm loving every other aspect of the new update. Anyone having a similar experience?EDIT: went back to playing after posting this and was attacked three times in 60 seconds when crossing to the tallest house in town, I'm amazed I'm at 49% and not 0% right now.
