** Xfire: End of the line... everyone get off! **

Unread postby PÕQ~Technut » Tue Jun 09, 2015 6:47 pm

EDIT: Clan Members, see this post for further information about PÕQ Clan switching from Xfire to Evolve.

Xfire, without any official warning of an impending shutdown, has suddenly called it quits on every aspect of Xfire that we ever cared about.

Xfire.com wrote:We have decided to sunset the Xfire Client and the social site so we can focus our efforts on The Xfire Tournament Platform. This hasn’t been an easy decision. We have a lot of loyal users and we know many of you will be disappointed by the loss of the client and community. But we feel that we are well positioned to make a significant impact in bringing the exhilaration of esports from the pros to the masses, and we can’t do that effectively while also maintaining the client and social website.


If you want to download your stuff from Xfire you can login at the bottom of the page at http://social.xfire.com/

It's been a bumpy road with Xfire and we won't be sorry to move on to something better.

PÕQ Clan is looking at a few alternatives. We'll let you know what we settle on soon. (It definitely won't be Xfire's Tournament Platform. :sick2 )

In the meantime you're invited to join us in our TeamSpeak server for text or voice chats. Or maybe add something to our new Shoutbox.

And here's a list of our Halo Servers (since we won't have an Xfire list anymore).

So, what's gonna happen to PÕQ then?

And does that mean the downloaded xfire client wont work anymore?

I'm Sure That's What It Means. It's Sad To See This Thing Go After Use For 5+ Years :'(

I really did not like xFire. Had way too many issues. PÕQ will still be here. Patience.

I have never ceased to be amazed at the absolute ineptitude of Xfire ever since they were bought out. I am amazed at how they failed to leverage the huge community of enthusiastic users into an even better product.

Complete ineptitude. What a waste.

Xfire has finally sent out a System Broadcast advising that Xfire is shutting down. Couldn't they have done that 2 weeks ago or a month ago?? :sarcastic:

Anyway, even though their website isn't working anymore, the chat client will continue working for a couple of days (until Friday June 12th).
Approx Countdown:
