Hey everybody!

The Gorge and The Gorge Tournament have come to an end.

Thanks to all who participated in The Gorge Tournament! We had a great time working on the event, and we hope you all had fun playing it. We'll get those prizes distributed as soon as possible, and we'll let you know once that's done. The participation prizes will take the longest, but we expect to be done by the end of today or tomorrow.

We have some cool stats we thought you would be interested in.

Over 25k people played The Gorge Tournament! This was significantly more than we expected. Of those who participated in The Gorge, 18,237 completed their Recipe Books!

11,162,027 Meals were snackrificed
129,818,990 Logs were harvested
48,090,945 Seeds were planted
851,676 Meals were burnt
34,297,118 Items were purchased
5,805,526,485 Steps were taken

To put that into perspective, during The Forge, 2,899,027,196 steps were taken.

So what's next?

We're not quite sure yet. We're working on figuring that out, but right now we are considering our options and don't have a solid enough plan to commit to yet. When we run an event like The Forge/Gorge, we are pretty much working on the event live the whole time, so we haven't had much time to work ahead yet.

We'll have some more specific information real soon!

The Gorge Tournament has begun!

Beginning at 11am PST, all Steam DST players who play the Gorge can start competing for the best scores. The top teams will receive the following:

Gold - (Top team of 1 - 3 players): Exclusive Gold Portrait, Exclusive Gold Icon, and Every item introduced with The Gorge, including the Survivors Chest and the Belongings Chest.

Silver - (Next 5 top teams of 1 - 3 unique players): Exclusive Silver Portrait, Exclusive Silver Icon, and The Gorge Belongings Chest.

Bronze - (Remaining Top 100 unique Players): Exclusive Bronze Icon and 25 Gorge Chests.

All participants will receive a special participation reward. Players appearing in multiple teams will only receive the reward for the highest tier they qualify for. Some restrictions apply, see below. 

This is going to be the first event of its kind, so we reserve the right to change things if we need to, or cancel due to unexpected complications.

We would love to do more things like this in the future, so make sure to give us your feedback!


How to Enter the Tournament

In order to qualify for The Gorge Tournament, you must finish a match with these 4 badges:

 Victory

 No Tributes Failed

 No Repeat Meals

 No Duplicate Survivors

(NOTE: It is OK to have other badges as well.)
Then, if your account qualifies, your score will automatically be entered, and this badge will show up as well:

 Tournament Entry


How Appeasement Points are Calculated

Appeasement Points are calculated by adding up all the points from each snackrifice (see below), multiplying by 1000, and then dividing by the total number of seconds spent in the entire match.

Coin values are as follows:

 1 point per coin.

 1 coin is worth 28 points, 2 coins is worth 84 points.

 1 coin is worth 98 points, 2 coins is worth 294 points.

 1 coin is worth 343 points.


For example, when the craving is matched:

Tomato Soup is worth 1× + 8× = 28 + 8 = 36 points
Candied Fish is worth 2× + 4× = 84 + 4 = 88 points
And say you escaped in 185 seconds using one Tomato Soup and one Candied Fish, then your match score would be:

(36 + 88) × 1000 ÷ 185 = 670 Appeasement Points

FAQ

What are the restrictions?

This tournament is Steam only, and only accounts that own Don't Starve Together can participate. Family Sharing "child" accounts will not qualify. Accounts must be in good standing.

Where can I see my rank?

The players qualifying for the gold, silver and bronze rewards are listed in the Tournament section of the leaderboards (https://forums.kleientertainment.com/gorge-recipe-book/).

What if I belong to multiple high scoring teams?

You will be rewarded based on the team with the highest score. If you qualify under multiple tiers, you will receive an award only for the highest qualifying tier.

When does the tournament end?

The tournament ends on July 17th at 11am Pacific time. Winners will be determined and prizes will be distributed shortly thereafter.

What about merch?

We wanted to give out merch as a prize, but the laws are scary, so we decided not to mess with that. If we get a lot of good feedback from this tournament, we'll look into how to go about physical prizes in the future.

Don't Starve Together - Klei-JoeW

After barely escaping through the Molten Gateway, our survivors plummet headfirst into the ruins of a sickly city ruled by a ravenous beast. Work together to cook fine dishes and placate the Eternal Gnaw's hunger to avoid the curse of its terrible plague. Cook well enough, and you may even get to go home.

The Gorge is a free limited time 3-player co-op challenge with tons of new skins, emotes, items and more. Your goal is to cook and offer food on the Altar of Gnaw, but you'll need all the cooks in the kitchen to keep it fed, so work together to survive!

We put together a nice little recipe book that you can find over here: https://forums.kleientertainment.com/gorge-recipe-book/

The Gorge begins June 14th and ends July 9th. Console will be coming just a short while after, we'll have details on a more concrete date soon. 

F.A.Q.

What is The Gorge?
The Gorge is a new limited time event that we are creating for Don’t Starve Together. During this time players can earn event themed skins and rewards that are only dropped during the event. 

Yeah, but WHAT is The Gorge?
The Gorge is a free limited time 3-player co-op challenge with tons of new skins, emotes, items and more. Your goal is to cook and offer food on the Altar of Gnaw, but you'll need all the cooks in the kitchen to keep it fed, so work together to survive!

The Gorge is played on official Klei servers that are available only during the event. There are no community hosted servers during this event. 

What else is in The Gorge?
  • With The Gorge we have added a bunch of new stuff for players to collect. 
  • New character skins, emotes, item skins and more. In total over 200 items.
  • New free on-demand dedicated event servers (Gorge Only).
  • Tons of new main menu UI additions and changes.
  • Simple Matchmaking with friends / community groups.
  • Updated drop system (Now 4 items per Chest - Gorge only).
  • New Item sets available for purchase
  • More event level progression.
  • And more!

If I play the regular game during the event, can I still earn skins?
You can. However, with one big difference. All common drops will now reward an event chest that contains Gorge event items. Regular common items will return after the event. 

Is The Gorge free?
Yes! Events are free for everyone who owns DST. Players will have the option to purchase a single character’s Victorian Skin Set for $2.99, or the entire Victorian Skin Set collection for $12.99. We also have a new chest full of 7 awesome Gorge themed items available for $9.99. You can purchase the entire set as a bundle for $19.99. Of course you can always earn these items in the game, or craft them.

We hope that with this mechanism, we can both continue creating great free content while also supporting the development team. In addition, this method of funding allows us to provide content to all our players, instead of splitting the player community if we implemented it with a DLC paywall.

When does the Gorge end? 
The Gorge will last a little over 3 weeks from the time it launches and we ending July 9th. 

Where do I submit feedback and bug reports?
Please submit your bug reports here, and feedback here.
