I was playing today... and i noticed it costs 25000 coins to exchange for 10 gems.
Why?
Thats so much, we usually only get about 500 coins per match!

Hi All,

I'm sorry the cost of prizes have gone up in the game. There have been a number of changes to the company over the last few months. I have been chatting with some of you via PM but it probably makes sense to make a post about it and get everyone up-to-date.

Before I get started please know that I love this game. I built it with a small team of awesome people (Jessica, Steve, Anna, Ashley). We spent thousands of hours working on the game, and I have done everything I could to fight for the game and keep it running in spite of recent events.

Ender's Fund, Inc. is no longer active now. The company has been shutdown and everyone has been let go. Right now and for the last few months, I have been paying out of pocket to continue running the game. The costs include server costs and prize costs. I am the only one maintaining the servers, and ordering and shipping prizes.

Unfortunately, the cost of prizes became too expensive for me to pay for. To help offset the costs and continue running the events, I have had to raise prices.

I ask that you please bear with me on these changes. I still believe in this game but it has been difficult to drum up outside support, even from MondoMedia, to continue development on it.

You guys have been awesome and are the reason I keep going on the game. Hopefully things will turn around and we will have a second chance at the game soon.

Best,
Alex

Dang, too bad :cry: .
Deadeye derby was fun while it lasted.
Hope the servers stay for a bit longer, I know there are still big fans of deadeye derby that are still playing. I 'm glad I know why everything was raised now, though.
Too bad endersfund is going out of business :cry:.
Also, I'm not sure if i've seen this somewhere else in the forums, were you guys working on another game?

They ARE out of business. Alex is the only one still keeping the game servers up.
