Q: Why has my Brownie Point balance changed?

On November 17, 2009, we changed the value of Brownie Points.

When we did this, we multiplied everyone’s balances by the same amount so that everything is fair and nobody’s money was lost.

We did this for a few reasons:

  • We wanted to be able to fine-tune our prices and the previous amounts weren’t flexible enough. For example: we wanted to make some products cheaper than 1 Brownie Point, but we couldn’t without making them free.
  • At some point in the future, we want it to be possible to earn Brownie Points by completing in-game tasks, and we wanted smaller increments to reward players more frequently.
  • We want players to be able to run contests in Flamebate with more winners without having to waste a ton of money.
