The website suddenly stopped working yesterday, with no notice. The only thing left on the website is a method to download your videos and screenshots at http://social.xfire.com

The chat client is still working until Friday.

The client still works, for now.
So the plan is we'll have to find something for the clan.
Let's hope it's not tunggle

Yes, and I discovered that It is still possible to access the complete site, under the domain temp.xfire.com

I have an idea, but I don't think if it's fine.

I wonder how much it would cost to run the Xfire (Classic) site?

Great find! If anyone wants a last look at their profile/stats/etc then follow that link!

Hasn't been updated since 2008. If we're all going to switch, then we should at least try to get something that is still supported.

I've been running through a lot of options and I don't think I'm going to find anything that can really fully replace Xfire. But I'll post about that in another thread, let's keep this one on the topic of Xfire's shutdown.

I'm going to post this here, not sure if this is of any use tho.

Someone took the time to compile a way to keep all your logged gaming hours when switching to another service.

EDIT:
I know one of the two programs mentioned in that topic: Evolve. Blast from the past time: 4!!! Years ago I made this post since (apparently) xfire was going down a slippery slide... http://forum.poqclan.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=13037&hilit=Evolve. Seems like it managed to stay alive for quite a while..
