I know everyone is really excited to play but we ran into some larger bugs with the code.
We're ironing them out and made great progress today but unfortunately it has caused us not to be able to release today.
We've spent all day today trying to fix this bug and we're going to spend all day tomorrow too if that's what it takes.
I highly dislike missing deadlines but unfortunately this is what is has come to so hold tight, we'll get there.

So I've looked at the pie charts, crunched the numbers, fed our coders nothing but coffee and mountain dew, and we've come up with when we believe AG will be up and running!
The magical date is Wednesday, April 16th!
Have a great weekend!

The Staff Handbook is now public!
The community has access to this handbook so that they can see exactly how the staff should act and behave. You will also be able to see exactly what it takes to become a staff member.
This handbook is a work in progress. If you see anything that needs added/clarified/changed let us know and we'll get to work!

Your friendly neighborhood Bargraphics here with a status update on ArcherGames.
We have been working extremely hard trying to get this up and running as soon as possible, the good news is that we are really diving into the code now and getting bugs fixed. We have AG up on our test server and are fixing the Hub as well.
I believe we will be able to give everyone an estimated release date by the end of today. Start getting some PvP practice in!
New Owners - Eye of Ender Network

Eye of Ender Community,
Bargraphics here and it’s with great excitement that I’m able to put this announcement out to everyone today. You may have heard some rumors that EoE has been sold, well today I can put this rumor to rest and let you know that it has been!
Let me introduce you to the new team taking over the reins.
- Brandon (Bargraphics)
- I’ve been part of this server for over a year, actively participating on the forums and playing mostly the ArcherGames gametype
- Attended Minecon 2011 (Las Vegas) and Minecon 2013 (Orlando)
- Has successfully started and ran a survival server called DarkTide back in 2011
- Acro Media (Plugin Design, Web Design, and Bug Support)
- An international web development and internet marketing firm founded in 1998
- 30 staff including programmers, graphic artists and marketing experts
- Support and develop using open source platforms
With the new changing of hands, we plan to tap Eye of Ender’s true potential and make it Minecraft’s premiere mini-game server. To start things off we will be fixing the flagship Eye of Ender gametype “ArcherGames” as soon as possible so that the community can get back to doing what they do best, playing! We will then spend every waking minute improving upon the current gametypes and website, working on introducing new gametypes, and listening to the community for their suggestions and ideas.
I personally believe Enayet and Rafi did a great job making Eye of Ender what it is today given the resources that they had. Having a full time programming and web design team as a partner will allow us to minimize downtime and maximize expanding the Eye of Ender network. We will also have physical tech support team, customer support team, and personnel dedicated to going through user submitted content (Maps, Gametype Ideas, Improvements, and overall Suggestions). With this, we expect issues to be resolved quickly and the community to really shine by being given a voice that is really being heard!
I’m positive there will be questions and concerns with this whole process but let me help ease some of those by stating right now that all past purchases on the Eye of Ender network will be grandfathered in! You do not have to worry about if what you paid for in the past still exists as we will honor each and every purchase. We will also offer many contests and chances to earn premium kits/memberships. There will even likely be discounts or promotions for players that have remained active in the community through this transition.
Time to get started!
