My apologies if this the wrong place to be making this thread, but Betting the Farmville seems to be MIA.
 
Should we just assume the feature is cancelled now that the fall releases are starting to appear and the site has more games to cover? It certainly seems that way, but I'm a little disappointed that there wasn't ever any resolution to it, and that there was only ever one "investor call".
 
Has there ever been any official word from the staff or interns on what happened?

Fear Gauntlet probably happened. Which is far better.

No, all the new episodes are just sitting in a vault with all the unreleased WUTANG's.

ryan did say that the eps were getting boring so unless they think up a way to spice them up then i'd guess it would be.

I think they thought it was a good replacement for the Endurance Run, but got very low views as it went on, along with some hate on the forums, then went to Plan B and just straight up said yo, endurance run factory back in production during PAX.

I really hope so. Fear Gauntlet is way better. I'm just bummed that the gauntlet will end soon.

While I feel like they had ringed as much out as Farmville as is possible, I also feel like there needs to be some sort of closure to it. You know, where they tally everything up and see who "won." 
 
Though in this case, I think the only winning move is not to play. Because Farmville sucks.

The Kingterns appear to be pretty busy with all the Fear Gauntlets and those Rooster Teeth-esque achievement guides on TheRealGiantBomb YouTube channel. It didn't look like FarmVille was going anywhere though; after they opened the social element it got a little crazy and unquantifiable. Plus Lemon did kind of cheat.

Farmville looks absolutely atrocious. I can't blame them for abandoning it. The episode where Lemon tried to sabotage Bodega was hilarious, though.

It would be nice to see some sort of finale with Vinny and Jeff acting out their investor personas, but it's not a big deal either way.

I watched the first episode and stopped there. I'm sorry, but I don't think even Vinny and Jeff playing Farmville could have made that series interesting. Farmville is just too damn boring.

It had a couple good episodes, but frankly, Farmville has no endgame. Another one of Ryan's investor meetings would have been funny, but then what? More showing off the farms? The videos they had really seemed to show off everything that game has to offer. Hell, it'd be more interesting to scrap it and do a Harvest Moon (or even Harvest Moon 64) ER or something.

As much as I despise Farmville, I actually enjoyed Betting the Farmville. I hope it makes a return in some way or we get an update on if it is coming back or not. Also, Fear Gauntlet is way better.

I really hope they wrap it up in the same style as when Ryan called Vinny and Jeff. It'd be amazing.

Lemon bores me, though. And they don't really treat the fear gauntlet as a video feature, it's hidden in community videos and their blogs right?

Hmmm.... I didn't even notice that it stopped until this thread (and I watched every episode)... I guess that is a pretty good indicator of why they stopped it?

I guess they thought Farmville would supply a decent amount of enjoyable content, and to be fair, there were some good times to be had.

In the end though, it's still fucking Farmville.

There were some good times to be had, but all in all, I'm glad the Fear Gauntlet took over instead. 
 
Also, they should be promo-ing the fuck out of that thing. Honestly, I don't understand why Betting the Farmville was more prominently displayed.

The Fear Gauntlet is a much better use of their time.

Betting the Harvest Moon would have been much more entertaining, nonsensical name and all.
