Xfire was great until like... 2009. This was really never that great. It has some improvements to Xfire but nothing really groundbreaking. They were just introducing features that consoles had since PS3/360 era that no one gives a shit about anymore.

 

Discord, on the other hand, plays off Slack's design which has been groundbreaking. It's everything you actually need in a very, VERY intuitive package.

 

Evolve was an evolution to Xfire, but just no where near enough.

 

i guess you never had a halo clan with 52 members back then and i had a web site in classic xfire back then.

and my members had time zones world wide as well.

all fun back then.

and i still host servers 10 years later 24/7 on my home pc lol.

you can work that one out.

Maybe its because I'm pretty tired, but I fail to see the point you're trying to make here...

When is the "back then" you keep referring to? Keep in mind, I'm saying it was great until 2009.

 

Also, there's really nothing other than joining someone's server directly through your friend's list that it can't do that Xfire could.

 

As I said, Xfire was good back then but it failed to evolve with time. It was also constantly down or sluggish.

It was fun while it lasted.  Now I am stuck on Steam and Discord... :(

I had Evolve and Raptr when xfire died, but to be honest I didn't really like/use them so deleted em. Steam is my primary thing.

Steam became my primary choice years before Xfire died. I tried Raptr briefly over the years, and used Evolve when I still had my CE server but since then I've only used it once in a blue moon. 

 

I did start using Discord a lot late last year when I found a group of Warframe players to play with, but since their pretty inactive now I only check it when I remember it exists.

And Evolve is back from the dead.

Friends,

 

Earlier this month, OODA and I shared the unfortunate news that Evolve needed to shut down. I guess it was pretty obvious that we didn’t have a lot of time to get our affairs in order before taking this action. Our decision and timing were a function of a pretty dire financial situation, which became even more dire after a payment from a new technology partner and an anticipated new round of investment both fell through in the same month.

 

We understand that the abrupt halt was a major inconvenience to you, our members. There’s never a convenient time to die, but this was far from the way we wanted to leave things. Well, we’d like to try to make it up to you…

Today we are humbled and overjoyed to announce that Evolve Labs has signed an agreement to resume operations of EvolveHQ, effective immediately.

That’s right: we’re back! Along with all of your profile, game, and friend data. This agreement comes at the hands of a generous new benefactor that has big plans and the resources to deliver on our shared vision of gaming better together.

We wouldn’t have done this if we didn’t think this was an amazing opportunity to bring you a brighter future in gaming. Please bear with us as we get up and dust ourselves off a bit. Our goal is to be fully operational within the next couple of days.

After that, our team will be hatching a plan for a path forward to the gaming experience we ALL deserve.

 

Evolve or Die,

 

Adam, OODA, Mamu, Pyro2927, rib3, and Friends
