We have released our new gamemode, SurvivalGames. We have tried our best to replicate how it was during TheFridge times and we are still going through fixing bugs and adding in new features to make it enjoyable as possible. Currently, we have 4 maps of which are fairly big and fun to play on. Throughout the course of the month, we will add in more maps so it doesn't get boring! Regarding the old maps from TheFridge, we are unsure if we will be able to get them back to the server for you guys to play on. We will try to get them back on but we can not hold any promises. If you find any bugs or if there are any cool features which you want us to add, make sure to leave a comment below. Be cautious that there may be one or two bugs left which still need fixing.
We have added voting back to the server of which rewards you 10 EnderPoints per vote. Voting is crucial to the community as this is the main type of advertising which will bring in players. To vote, all you have to do is go to the hub and type in the command "/vote". This will bring up a list of links of which you need to click and then follow the instructions on the website. Every now and then, we may add in a jackpot system on where you will have a chance on getting double or triple amount of EP per vote. This feature however, will be rare to get.
After SurvivalGames is finished and bug free, I believe our developer will either be working on fixing the current gamemodes and polishing them up or working on another gamemode. If there are any features on which you want added to the server or any gamemode then please make sure to comment below on which features you would like added. There is a few bugs on ArcherGames which will be fixed this week.

We've been working very hard over the past few weeks at EyeOfEnder. We have accomplished a lot of work and there is still lots more improvements to be made! I am going to cover a few topics so this may be a long announcement, get reading!
EyeOfEnder back up:
As you may or may not know, EyeOfEnder was down for the past couple of hours. This was due to the fact that Bukkit made new updates to their code. Because of this, Spigot (basically Bukkit but a different version) had to update their code too otherwise the server wouldn't work. We had to wait all day for them to do this and by the time the developer was online, the new update was released. Now the server is back up and running how it should be.
BuyManager is the plugin on our server which handles the new purchases of the ranks. The way it works now is that you purchase "Ender Points" which can be used on the website or in-game. From these EP (Ender Points) you'll need to then go in game and then purchase the rank. A tutorial on how it works is below:
"/buy" will show all the arguments you can write after it.
"/buy rank" will display all the ranks you can purchase and the amount they cost.
"/buy confirm" will confirm the transaction which you are about to purchase.
"/buy clear" will clear the pending transaction if you don't want to purchase it.
"/buy rank <rank>" will make you purchase the rank you have stated in the <X> brackets.
"/ep" will show you how many EnderPoints you have in your balance.
Since we don't plan on releasing any more gamemodes after SurivalGames for a while, we will push updates to our current gamemodes. A few updates which I told Rei to implement on ArcherGames was a scoreboard which shows the top 3 players with the most kills, an inventory (chest) GUI to make everything more easier and maybe some other cool features. If you have any suggestions, make sure to comment below!
We have got someone working hard on SurvivalGames which should hopefully be up and running by this week, if not by the start of next week. However, dates aren't always 100% so even next week may be delayed to a later date so we can add functions to the plugin and or fix bugs which may have occurred. But we will be releasing SurvivalGames so don't worry about that!
Dodgeball is the latest addition to the EyeOfEnder gamemodes. This was a re-model of our old dodgeball and now works like the real-life dodgeball which you play in sports! Some people say they don't like this, but most people say this is a fast-paced game which they enjoy. We will also be adding some cool features into this such as some more power-ups, better maps, scoreboard, etc.
This has been a major query amongst the AG community. We, as a staff, have decided that adding stats back in would make AG a more competitive environment which makes AG more fun. So in conclusion, we will be adding stats back in the VERY near future to AG so you can rack up your kills! Stats will also be added to dodgeball so you can see how many people you've hit, caught back in, got caught out, etc. There may also be a Hall-Of-Fame area where you can see player heads with the most stats, this hasn't been finalised at the moment.
The Hub has had a little re-model by our beloved Keith1411 who I must say is an excellent builder! He's added some cool textures to the hub and made the icons look better. As well as this, the hub will have some features added into it such as disguising as mobs, turning players off, inventory (chest) GUI, pets and maybe even a wardrobe system!
Regarding maps, we are working hard on getting some maps together for our current gamemodes and even building some. For ArcherGames, we aim to release a new map or 2 every month for it. For Dodgeball, we know it's plain with 1 map so we will be adding in more maps to play on very soon! SurvivalGames is the one which needs the biggest and best maps for the detail and size. We are also trying to get some maps for that and MAYBE even some of the old Fridge maps. Keith1411 is working on a top-secret map for a gamemode which I may show some sneak-peaks on Twitter so make sure you're following us: @EyeOfEnderLTD
This is a potential future gamemode which Rei will be working on in his spare time. We don't know how it'll work, yet, but it will consist of zombies and that's all we're certain on for the time being. We'll give a more detailed description of it closer to the release date.
We are trying to interact with the community more so we try our hardest to communicate with you guys and do as much with you as possible. Over the next few weeks, you should see some more giveaways happening on Twitter (@EyeOfEnderLTD), livetreams and maybe even some ArcherGames tournaments.
Last not but least, our developer: AnomalousRei
Everyone please make sure you give our developer a BIG "thank you" if you see him in game or even on the forums. We have been working closely together everyday to make sure EyeOfEnder is the best it can possibly be. He has been working everyday, non-stop, for the past few weeks getting the new gamemodes up, fixing the server and just making it a much better experience than it was before so thank you - Rei!
That is all for today, that was a very long update! I hope you found this informative and beneficial to you.
