XFIRE IS DEAD!

Post by Goobinator » Thu Jun 11, 2015 10:14 am

Dear Xfire users - It is with sadness that we must announce that the Xfire Social services will be shutdown on Friday (June 12th). Please visit social.xfire.com to download your video/screenshot data. We apologize for the short notice - Xfire Community Team
http://social.xfire.com/

Well, it's been dead since December 2014. No updates, many users ceased to log on the client, the site was constantly giving 404 errors etc. I thought they're just gonna leave it at this and let XFire die with natural death. Slowly burn out. But no, they decided to shut it completely. That's terrible news.

It applies to both the website and the game client.

And this is EXACTLY why I want all Tribes Vengeance content to be hosted on this domain.

It's Friday and I'm still logged on. I wonder what time zone they meant.

After 18 hours... I'm # 16344 in the queue. This had to be a joke.

Well I started out at position 2180 or something and it took well over 24 hours but it eventually let me download the archive. Client still seems to be working though. Maybe they gave some extra time so people can download their stuff.

did finally download that shit - but the quality of the videos is just horrible... I thought about doing a little video with xfire frags but the quality of the clips + the fact that my PC doesn't allow me to install neither After Effects or Sony Vegas made me quickly forget the idea

Dear Xfire users - It is with sadness that we must announce that the Xfire Social services are shutting down. Please visit social.xfire.com to download your video/screenshot data. We announced the closure date to be June 12th, but that was for the webservers. The Xfire client services will be terminated at any day or time in the very near future.

I'm pretty sure many of you already know this, but the client stopped working a week ago, or so. Well, you can still have it installed, but it simply wouldn't connect to the server, which was an essential part of using XFire.

XFire is dead.
Now dead in every imaginable meaning of the word.
