All good things must come to an end?

I've been deliberating for a while whether it's time to shut Crossfire down.

Crossfire has been a fantastic haven for RTCW & ET for more than a decade. This community has achieved magnificent things together and I think it's safe to say it has well outlasted anyone's expectations. Personally, Crossfire enabled me to grow and learn in ways I thought never possible and I owe a fantastic debt to this community.

The reality is that the site is now largely inactive. Google Analytics says 15k people visited in the past month which somewhat surprises me but... apparently 10k of those are the Philippines and and are only visiting the user registration page...so yeah I don't think they're real. I am concerned that the site is probably quite leaky in terms of user data and that is probably a legal liability, plus it costs 50 euro a month in server fees.

More importantly though it is evident that no one is really contributing much in the way of content these days, I notice the last LAN was unfortunately cancelled due to lack of interest. If anyone has a plan that they'd like to share with me as to how they hope to breathe new life into this community I am all ears, otherwise at some point toward the end of the year I will most likely shut the site down.

Similarly if anyone is interested, I would love to keep some form of archive of all of the content from Crossfire's history alive and if anyone had the technical skills and wanted to work on that I would be glad of the help.

If this is to be the end then what a run it has been. There are plenty of other gaming communities that are older and bigger than Crossfire, but there are none that I'm aware of that can touch the story of all that Crossfire did as a community. Crossfire became so much greater than the value of its individual parts and for that I am eternally grateful to you all.

You are still right with your text. Have tried my best with the recent Lans but to cancel the last one has shown that it seems to be over.

Thank you for keeping the lights running this long! I am sure there will be a few who will put their hand up to help with an archive of sorts.

The search engine will need a bit of a revamp though. I tried to search for butchji's old journal about the adverse side-affects from shaving his butt-crack the other week, however it came back empty on both 'butchji' and 'butt-crack'.

After a bit of googling it turned out he actually copied the original story from craigslist... what a time to be alive.

RIP

ET was a legendary game, and crossfire was the heart of the ETPlayer community.

Thanks to the admins for running it, and thanks for taking the time to archive years of content.
Feeling weird by seeing this. Looks like the end of an era.. It's sad :/

Having crossfire archives would be great indeed
Would it be possible for the legacy team to take this stuff over?
great idea
Parent
They'd have to rely on donations but I'd be more than happy to contribute. Way too much history and too many memories to be lost if we lose cf
Parent
You once had a rubber pleasure stick in your mouth and i will never forget.
Parent
:( I'm so sad about this. It's worse than the Clanbase closing. But it's ok all the best things come to an end.
I just want to thank all the people who tried to get this alive. <3
when the end comes and stares into ur eyes tells you
"ur time has come"

you turn around, walk away and as the fucks are flying you glaze back and say "im from crossfire bitch we aint going nowhere, this is not the end only a new beginning"

im sure we fucktards can get together and keep the forums alive atleast, sure we cant run a lan or run or get a tan but in the cold weather we can unite as naked brothers spooning together to keep warm in the cold we are facing. The cumback

it was a pleasure indeed, warm regards Sloveniaseareal
Parent
Agree with you, lets keep crossfire's warm all together !
Parent
Ur time has come!!
Parent
Oddio Decade! Ciao! Come va?

Bene bene :D

I'd be happy to help with this as a member of the legacy team.

Parent
who are you to say this!
Parent
What a run indeed, ET will always be number one game for me personally.
Whatever your decision will be, I thank you for the effort youve put into this site and community. Wont be posting here anymore after this, so I'd like to give a shoutout to all the guys from thefinest and exitium, we had good fun in the past 10+ years.

Farewell
Was a blast, even mighty pds sticks around nowadays :D
Parent
im glad you're finally gone shithead
Parent
GG WP, thanks for awesome times! Such a shame there are no more offis to be played.

All the best for everyone who was a part of pS*/thefinest family over the years and RIP Radari.
Parent
Understandable decision but very sad one. How am I supposed to pick up chicks in teh cklub if I cant show them my +10 years CF account? Where will I share my real life stories to make nerds believe I have an amazing social life? Where will I brag about #follow.et being the best eSports cklub ever created? What will happen to my F5 key that I pressed so hard after posting a journal? What will I do if I can't create e-drama to entertain nerds? What will happen to my jelly haters who wished me to die and get all possible diseases on the planet?

So many questions that will be left without answers... Love you guys (no homo)
I already regret and miss the edrama of this sommet who brought activities :( the THE community of ET

Ill miss everything from cf :( it was a part of us all !
Parent

Some sort of archive sounds great. It'll be a shame to see this place go. I check in every now and then, but there's almost nothing new being posted.
That's unfortunate but seeing it from your point of view I probably would had already closed it 2-3 years ago :d

Thanks for providing us with this awesome platform, it has been a pleasure!

An archive would be great, perhabs the legacy guys could host that? And for the communication part, I think a simple free forum should get the job done with ease.
And us not winning last LAN? Are you out of your mind... after 13 years I was finally able to say we were the best of the world.
Parent
A lot of memories with this website but... what is dead cant be alive never more imo. I hope we can do smth to keep thise but if not i hope i will be on funeral of this ;F
archive mama punching worms on lan
Too bad the community hasn't been given the chance to evolve into another game / platform.
Some days I wish I could just boot up my pc and play 6on6 via et.gather or play some christmas pimped map like North Pole xd. Or even just watch a decent game with your excellent shoutcasting :)

Anyway most of us are way past our "gaming days" so for everyone that has played with / against me in the past... thank you for all the nice memories.

what next, GTV? :(
Could be. I manage to keep it alive a bit but it's clear it lacks of visitors and users.
Parent
if you would ever decide on shutting it down, please let us make some kind of backup :p we can't lose all those demos and shoutcasts
Parent
I believe the decision is on Marcus :) By saying of keepin' it, I meant, I request matches of csgo, lol, overwatch, urban terror and I answer tickets.
Parent
How much money does it take host gamestv.org?
Parent
That's a question for Marcus.
Parent
Damn, that is a shame but understandable. I still visit CF as a habit. Sometimes I'll read some old threads for laughs. Thanks for keeping it running for this long and not pulling the plug out of nowhere like ClanBase did.
Looks like this is the final call of ET.
Thanks everyone for being part of the greatest community.
Enjoyed the game more than 10 years and played with hundreds of different ppl all over the world which I will never forget.

Cu!
i witnessed so many people saying ET ist dead. it now feels real for the first time in 15 years.
True shit lol
Parent
After reading this journal I went through all the basic phases of grief, because for the first time I realized that ET is now officially dead :( Was a great run nonetheless, so many great memories! Thank you for running the community website for so long TosspoT, and for the amazing casting over the years :)
I haven't visited for a little while and today I decided to, what a sad day :(.

Although I joined Crossfire at the end of my ET career it was still one of the amazing memories.

Within the last 3 hours I've started archiving all of the SWRTCW data (movies, demo's etc..) so I can hold onto those memories.

I'll keep tabs on this post, hopefully with someone to take the site on.

If we are officially at an end, how about a few last games before the site closes down?
It's been lovely to read all of these comments and be reminded of what Crossfire means to people.

The good news is that the community spirit that has kept this site alive all these years seems to still be active. A few people have reached out (I'll leave them nameless to save the pressure on them) with ideas on how to both keep a portion of the site active (Journals!) and then archive the inactive parts of the site.

I think/hope we'll be able to keep the old girl alive yet.
I think a 'like' feature would suffice as I really like this comment :)
Parent
It would also be great if we could have an overview of the competitive history the games (rtcw/et) have in some sort of wiki like this: https://liquipedia.net/ . And let the community help. I don't mind building the entire RTCW history wiki, but i don't know how to set it up.. Also let people upload demos / shoutcasts for an archive or something.

And, as you know i'm still uploading new videos of matches (with shoutcasts included!) on my youtube channel. I actually have been doing this consistently for over the last 3,5 years.

I've uploaded more than 600 competitive history matches for RTCW and ET:
RTCW: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNPxBUfrP1k48mfgrn0gzDzjuZx6cMFs0
ET: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNPxBUfrP1k5qvwprMlRSPAdyFxcK7BVm

I'm still looking for new material as my ET shoutcasts of you are running dry :-( or i don't have the demo. I should make some sort of news post actually, if ppl still have demos or other shoutcasts left..

Last but not least, i've been starting an "'ultimate RTCW history movie". Since i'm still at the early stages, i don't mind sharing some short teases:
clip 1 - quakecon 2003: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MO712NXrIng
clip 2- bob 1 2002: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Tp-qGRyikc
Parent
Moving to wiki sounds good imo.
Parent
The wiki thing is a good idea. I've always thought that there should be something like that for ET and RtCW.
Parent
Nice idea! Didn't know you have so much demos on yt online, so nice to go through a few of these again!
Parent
If someone decides to make such wiki from scratch, I'm up to contribute in programming
Parent
Was hoping it was you announcing a LAN or something :(

But I completely understand where you're coming from and just want to thank you for keeping this game alive for as long you did for us. As I look back at my old comment history, it makes me truly see how much of a child I was and how I changed as the years passed. At one point, you replied to one of my idiotic comments roasting me and I was so happy cause the real TosspoT had actually replied to my comment. On a serious note, I'm sure if it's costing you only 50 euros a month, we can easily get donations to reach that every month. Thank you for everything you did. Much love and hope all is good in your rl.
Thanks the kind words! I think a lot of people (myself included) can tell the same story of growing up through the Crossfire years. I checked my account history and my account is almost 15 years old. Safe to say I was not as pleasant a human being as I am now for the majority of those 15 years lol ;)
Parent
werent we all Stuart :)
Parent
The page is dead, having an archive would be nice because of all the valuable content. Time to reveal some stories, this could be interesting 8D
Ive always wanted to digg deep into Sol and his maltese pedo adventures!
Parent
Guess it was inevitable at some point to read this kind of news about closing crossfire, since it isn't nearly as populated as it used to be years ago or even longer back in the history. Obviously every ETPro player have their history written allover this page and regardless of still playing or just ocassionally checking this page, grief will be same seeing it go.
Its understandable that given the lack of activity and on other side monthly costs as well as any potencial private data leaks could do more bad than good, i assume there could still be some alternative ways of maintaining some basic form of crossfire, maybe find a cheaper hosting or similiar stuffs.

Anyways if it all goes down this path and it actually gets shut down, i assume the competitive scene will probably suffer that last nail in the coffin of trying to keep it somewat semi alive, tho ET itself at least public part is still a bit active. What a way to celebrate 10 years on this account :D
love you brother
Parent
Some great times had within this community and memories it was definitely coming though, congratulations with all you created stu. Should be pretty proud you kept the last bit of the community together when the games been dead for years. Hope it's not too hard for yourself!
I think most of us will always remember the crossfire LAN events, some great memories for sure. I think Wolfenstein titles last a lot longer than most would have in the circumstances and I think that can be attributed to how good the games were and how passionate the people with the community were as well.

Thanks for keeping CF up as long as you have - all good things come to an end indeed!
Just logged in here again after a eternity and see this, a bit said! But the good old times of Wolfenstein are sadly over. Can't even find the time do go on HBC or whatever to play a bit for nostalgia.

But for sure it was a fun time!
No game will ever reproduce the feeling ET once gave me. So many great persons who I've had the honor to share so many memories with. Started on the 3rd grade and here I still browse the same communitys page as a 24 year old even though I have barely touched the game in the last 4 years.

Hell of a run! If anybody feels they would like to stay in touch and/or maybe play something add me on steam!
Looks like sungi's movie triggered crossfire's annihilation protocol
My thoughts as well xDDD
Parent
This is making more sad than expected
It’s been an absolute pleasure being part of all the Crossfire Community. The posts, the journals, the fame, the LANs, the tournaments, the cheaters, the opportunities, the drama, the high and low moments. I'm going to miss you all. I wish you all the very, very best for the future and I will hold very fond the memories we have together. So enjoy this moment TosspoT, it’s been a blast. Thanks for the 12 years, I can remember every single moment I have and cherish it for the rest of my life.

It would be rude not showing up one last time. The memories I've gotten over the 13 years i've been here will never leave me. Stuart, you've always been wise passed your years and hope you feel really proud of what you've achieved not only with this community but by genuinely putting esports on a global stage . I think it's safe to say we've all grown as individuals. Never did i once think when being a young teen on this game would lead me to make some of the best friends and times i've ever had, to this day G5 all meet up for a good old jolly up! I wish you all the best in life!

You're welcome buddy :) It was a year ago now at my 30th (Old sod i know!) Be sure to hop on our discord at some point so you don't turn into a stranger. https://discordapp.com/invite/hz4qdsq a lot of old faces you will remember lurk in the depths ;). Also, as an added nostalgia boost, when i was writing this reply the Babylon 5 theme tune came on which made me think of you....if that isn't a sign I don't know what is
Parent
Say hello to Skydeh (Dean) from me :D. We were meant to meet up at college back in 2008 but completely lost contact. All the best. iDan.
Parent
Well hello! I'm still alive, just.
Parent
I will remind everything from my first sign up on the previous crossfire site to the last minute of this one and will remember everything as positive !

Every dramas and stuff will even be a good souvenir in a few years when I'll think and remind about the fact it happened with people that loved and shared the same game than me.. brothers arent always agreed between them but they are still from a same familly. It is for me the same with ET.
Sorry for all the disturbance, sorry for my english but I love you all, being french, polish, uk, german, finnish, swedish, belgian or what ever country, ill remember you all as brothers of games.

Kisses

Big thanks Tosser!

I took a screenshot of all my medals in my profile, now my mind is at ease for whatever is to come!
I havent been here for 4 years, sad to see its this in-active!

Thanks for keeping it up all this time!
ET will still always be my favourite game.
I've spent most of my young adult life on this website and on ET servers. Unfortunate to see it fade away. Never found the same amount of fun in any other game so far. Even just looking at random matches at GTV was a blast. This website and his community was the last remaining bastion of the best game ever made.

Thanks all for the good times!

objective completed! Great shot!
gg, wp
Closing Crossfire means its a whole community that is plunged into the dark, like lost souls, no pillar anymore :/
It was a meeting place

ET and particulary ETPro is in mourns.

We must find a solution
I think most important thing is to keep "crossfire.nu" domain cause many people remember cf by its domain name. I dont mind giving a couple of bucks a year for that.
Eventhough a backup/archive of CF is very appreciated would be nice to have some kind of database with contact to all people from here... I remember when they closed xfire (the software) I didnt even know and lost all my contacts...
Maybe something like a list with your steam/discord/email/twitter whatever

RIP
Thank you TosspoT!

Stuart, just to echo Dave (Wakizashiuk)'s comments...

Thank you for providing us with the platform to create lifelong friends.

As Dave mentioned we still meet up at least once a year, and it's like we've never been apart.

This is a time I will always look back on fondly, with some fantastic memories along the way.

Congratulations on your career achievements and best of luck for the future.
Well well, talk about a blast from the past. How are things h3lix?
Parent
Oh no. Was waiting for this to happen. Only game I have ever really played!
On gamestv should be shoutcasted every ET match not only official. Why we can`t just put random 6vs6 med skilled battle on gamestv where every1 can bet emoneyz? We dont have any official ladder so we should let people request random et matches. Best motivation for peoples are moneeey so if we could bet real money and win real money it would makes matches more emotional and moving ;D
Best idea ever proposed by a guy who is missing one chromosome. That will do the job to keep et alive but how can you bet real money when your only income is selling your fathers empty bottles?

My daily comment in here:
Crossfire made me meet incredible people from all over the world. 10 years later we still hang out on our very professional communication softwares such as Disco and Whatsup. I even had a chance to share a couple of bears with my mates FinlandWny and PolandRafek. It's not just about computer... it's more than that.
I'd definitely be in to see some of your nerdy faces.
Sad shit but can say its been one helluva ride though! Got plenty of friends via crossfire & ET so thank you for that

SCOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTT
Parent
I never thought I'd be that sad after reading such journal and, what is even more weird, I still remember most of guys posting here, even though I haven't contributed actively for years now... still visiting crossfire just to read some journals from time to time though.

Who could predict that I'll still be here after 15 years, when one day in 2004 a guy I was trading with in Diablo 2 said "hey, you should try Enemy Territory, different but a great game". The rest is history.

All these hours on TS/vent, analyzing GTV games of idle.ee and their tactics (shouts to Night, me and syriusZ were the biggest fans :XD best player in ET history), preparing tactics in school to test them in the evening... some might say it was a waste of time, I say those are some best memories and I wouldn't trade them for anything. Learnt a lot and still know some guys here in my city that I began playing with in 2004 - q2nf, our first clan was made only with guys from Poland Krakow.

I still have more than 30 FM's of some best players back in their days, sometimes when I get nostalgic I watch one or two.
Hope this community or site will somehow survive, so I can still visit it once in a week to see if any nerd created another dumb journal. If not - it was indeed hell of a run. Best game and community ever. Over and out.
Haha, sounds like my life in 2005-2006 :D
Parent
this can't be true :(
I knew this day would come one day :(

Hope someone will take over

Thank you for keeping it up for as long as you have, hopefully some of the things can be preserved somehow.

It is crazy how my account is already 14 years, 4 months and 7 days old, I think I started playing ET when I was around that age lol. Good to see quite some familiar names still in this thread as well, hopefully it isn't the last I've seen of you all. :)

Disappointing news... NA RTCW and ET communities suffered similar fates with our core community websites shutting down after various lengths of service to the respective games years ago. Thankfully things like Facebook and discord communities keep our games going. It’s obviously only a matter of time for crossfire and it was bound to happen here as well. I think if any good comes from this it will be to see renewed interest in RTCW and ET games for the EU communities for a short period of time which would be nice for peeps to get to enjoy those games again in a semi-competitive environment. Crossfire will be missed.
Sad times, shame there was no game to replace ET :(
During the time I spent playing ET I loved every second of it. Some of my fondest and most cherished memories are playing ET with my friends. Firm handshakes to all the players, teams, admins, server owners, leagues, content creators and everyone else who made ET so great.
I remember playing against you, a very very long time ago!

Havent logged in here in years but had to do this for this final journal boys. Been a sick ride, thx for the community for all the great memories and special shoutout to the finnish et-scene, especially the one and only KRP and masculine mans.

Cya @ LAN bitches <3
Way to get your ad revenue up before Christmas Stu...

It's been a blast. I've met great people, friends, and experiences through this community. Although my heart tells me it would be awesome for someone else to inherit this site and keep it running, it's a race to the bottom. Additionally, anyone who does inherit it would have potential GDPR issues as well as numerous site vulnerabilities and buggy code. Therefore, I think it's best to say v55.

It could be nice to get everyone into a discourse channel to keep the giggles alive, but as a website format I believe this community is truly dead.

Special thanks to Tosspot, Marcus, Ronner, Stray, Sebhes, Timbo and all those that kept it alive even after all the interest disappeared. The fact we were able to get a LAN going in 2017 is an amazing feat. I wish everyone from here all the best!
GDPR people aint gonna care about crossfire, we should host it illigally to make it feel more legit <3
Parent
A quick tutorial on how to make crossfire GDPR foolproof (maybe, not really on par with gdpr)

Only registered users allowed to see any content, during registration you must agree to the terms according to which you are a legal person/a business.

To those users already registered, once signed in, a pop up delivers the new terms and services which the user has to agree in order to continue using the site.

btw, love you Tristan.

I appreciate that ScarZy <3

14 years member already? Jezus, time flies…. I hope Ronner will save the day and keep Crossfire's website alive. So i can read back all the fun and good stuff from the past....
Who would have thought a bald guy who plays with a condom on his head would save CF. Internet never stops surprising me.
On a side note, if someone still has the video please share :XDDDDDDDDD
I remember laughing so hard...
Parent
hahahahaha yeah i remember that!
Parent
Whatever happens, thank you for entertaining times Tossbro, community and all.
Seems like i missed so many things in the past. Shame i wasnt here back then. Nice words from ya all and i can feel your pain!

ET never dies.
There'll always be fragmovies for nostalgia!
Please make the 3rd part!
Parent
Not possible I'm afraid. :(

Too much work required, and there's almost no audience anymore. The last volume has less than 8,000 views on YouTube, and that's still pretty high for ET these days. Movies released now would be lucky to get half of that. The content also wouldn't be as good. Medius covered ET at it's most popular I think. 2011 onwards has been relatively quiet.
Parent
I loved those movies! Got inspired to use the same style for my upcoming movie https://youtu.be/MO712NXrIng
Parent
Cool. Good luck with it! :)
Parent
really like it but its too dark. make it a bit more broght
Parent
not bad! but change that music. i'm waiting all the time for dat peak. not coming.
(:
Parent
You made some horny fragmovies. If i have to show one nowadays its most likely one from you or quaky ^_^
Parent
One of my all time favorite scene is from mAx Chapter 3. It's on goldrush at the second barrier as the allies just secure the gold but then mAx gets a wicked 5 man and they get the barrier built as TosspoT says "mAx is gonna go for 5, he's gonna get 5. lettu* is gonna get the 6th and they're gonna get the barrier up and sFx are gonna lock this one down with 2:23 to go and boy oh boy did this game just come alive!"

Good night sweet prince.
Rip… :/
It has truly been a pleasant ride! Hope something can still be done to lenghten it =)
Rip all my shiny pocals:s
Didn't expext to be slightly emotional reading some of the comments. Still visit crossfire every now and then and for the first time it really feels like the end of an amazing time. The amazing people I've met and the way our community is, it's unique.

Thanks for the ride all, wish you the best.

Cheers
I'm both sad and happy. sad cause it's over, happy cause of the awesome memories and moments I'll never forget. One thing I know for certain is that there will never ever be a community like this one. EVER.
Cant you use wizardry like these perkamentus dude to safe this?
Parent
wow how original
Parent

Parent
I know you are, but what am I?
Parent

wtf you dooing man, you know i have been living in the philipenis!

Proof as you see me here taking a picture of a supershoppingmarket
Is it a sign that this end of the world post was posted on my birthday? I think not.
Remember those day when someone made a HB|Loekino journal and it had a funny picture inside? Now all i got is the end of Crossfire and some salty nuts.
Parent
happy birthday
Parent
Loekino still being autistic fuck i see
He especially seems to be very drunk.

Posting 4 messages in a row without any link between the previous message he was supposed to answer lol
Parent
C'était encore pire il y a quelques années... il est déficient mental je crois
Parent
Au moins, je n’ai pas été coincé en mode Le meme depuis 10 ans.
Parent
You decided to learn french because you like my style. Admit it m8
Parent
Loekino le délateur à bicyclette en plus à l'arrière il y a un siège pour bébé
Parent
ça doit être dur pour toi
Parent
oui beaucoup :sss
Parent
Of course i think that, it was a warm one from Mindje.
Parent
actually no, fuck you.

First comment and second are related, its a philipain picture. Also the first comment is directly aimed at the journal post.
Third comment was seperate, but also directed at the journals date, as my fourth comment reply on my self is related again to the third.

So whos autistic now huh?
Please reply in a structured order.
Parent
6 years, 3 months and 15 days

forgive him

he's just another attention whore retard who is trying to be funny by replying to everybody
Parent
Yes and that is my job :E
Parent
You mom gave me aspereges.
Parent
Loekino is back cf is alive. Back to lurking everyone.
Finally managed to register from the philipenis, i am one of those kinda dodgy, single, middle age mans.
Parent
What happened to the other guys like satz and flugle?
Parent
Going to meet them right now!
Parent
No way! Hope you and loekino are well. If you still speak to any of the others send them my best.
Parent
only banaan and Flugel and sometimes Dark on steam, not many others. Everything good here, hope you are doing well too :) Smoke one from me, ill send you Loekino's stash np
Parent
Inevitable, but thanks for keeping crossfire up for such a long time.
RTCW <3
Really miss the times when you opened up your server browser and saw 100s of filled up servers and 1000s of people playing.
Nowadays, it's 99% bot servers and an occasional play on ECGNetwork mp_beach, because that's literally all that is left :<
Same story for crossfire sadly.

Oh well, getting old :<
Thanks for the memories! V-5-8-6!
This site was the hottest shit in my life back then. It's sad seeing it shutting down (or turning it into an archive-only).

IMO the problem is, that the community held on to ETPro. If the competitive players would move to another mod and maybe ETLegacy at the same time, the game might be attractive again. Better hardware compatiblity, Installer for Win, Linux, OSX(!!) and so on. I'ld like to provide 1 or 2 et server, if ineeded, just to give something back to the community and the greatest game ever since.
Considering that only Ronner actually wants to keep the site alive and host it, makes me wonder what is the point? Logged into mirc few days ago after more than a year absence just to see around 60 people idling on 6on6.et while half of if were just bncs, not connected for 45543 days. Game now is as much dead as this community. Nevertheless we had a good run boys and girls. Being a part of it gave me some of the best memories in my life.
Not erryone is like ronner who demands the instant pride, prowess and status of being a crossfire.nu owner and posts it public.
Parent
The sarcasm is strong with u.
Parent

het voelt net weer als vroeger toen we samen vissen vingen
Parent
I would love to keep crossfire alive too ! unfortunaly I have no solution :/
Parent
i think many ppl want to keep it alive.. and what is teh problem with keeping it alive if its free
Parent
Don't get me wrong, I think it is brilliant idea. It is just sad fact that from 280 comments here, only one says "I will host it myself".
Parent
Why is that sad? I don't think that many people have the ability to do it, be it for money-reasons or simply not having the knowledge. And it's still not for certain that I am going to host it. I am waiting on access to the server so that I can do an analysis of what the technical requirements are going to be, and after that there is still a GDPR issue that I want sorted before I host this. I'm happy to host it, but I'm not going to put myself in a possible GDPR nightmare ;-)
Parent
Don't get me wrong, I understand your concerns, but I wouldn't worry too much about GDPR as long as the website does not have any financial motives to keep it running.
Parent
What breezie said. GDPR only concerns big companies. Why would you even target an old website that is non profit with internet identity profiles
Parent
Sure, Im also guessing that it will not be an issue but that doesn't take away the fact that it'd be the smart move to find out for sure.
Parent
Why would you host it? The site is dead, thats why he wants to take it down, there is simply no activity on this site anymore, and 70% of the visitors are bots. The 50 euros he has to invest every month is probably the least of his worries lol. Let it go down gracefully.
Parent
thanks Tosspot, Ronner and everyone who kept the site and the community alive, always loved the game and the banter.

had some really funny moments and made friends for life. good luck to all of you <3
At least your artwork will be remembered forever.
Parent
Need to save it before cf shuts down
Parent
In what hole are u hiding? :D
Parent
I know Rocket League can be very addictive, but give urself some fresh air :D
Parent
LOL good one!
Parent
Get around steam/discord sometimes if u can for some chats or games :)
Parent
Quite a nice number of different people, posting a comment tbh ;)
I guess those "150+" guests weren't fake accounts after all. :XD
Parent
this was a trick to activate cf.. i bet sebhes is already trying to rent a place for LAN
Parent
Haha I just replied to your pm, then I read this. What a coincidence :D
Parent
Comment
Parent
Thanks Tosspot for the great times! Good to see you are still alive. Greetings from the MAZZ crew and the best panzer of CDC3!
Lol haha Aarsie <3
Parent
Ouwe farmerboy! :)
Parent
make cf only visible for users who logged in not for guests :P
Feels like a desperate breakup ;__;
Going to light up for the good times of escaping "normal" social life.
Good old times :( Thanks for all the years Tosspot

Very sad but happy to see that Ronner is looking at hosting if at all possible. Either way, the game has been dead for a while and the core community is no where near active enough to keep it going. I still try to play the odd game every few months or so and still enjoy it. I do come online here every now and again but as you mention, there is no new content really being posted - which is no fault of anyone as everything runs it's course. We can always look back with huge smiles on our faces of what we've achieved :)
I'm gonna hit up some public server for a nostalgic game now :)
Sad but all good things must come to an end. Thank you TosspoT for the great years all the best
Thank You All! 7yr 9m 7days
Respect! Transfer this community to Twitter.
thanks for everything!
Thank you for all the great memories! Thanks to all those motivated people that kept this community alive for so long! I've spent a considerable amount of my youth playing ET and posting retarded journals on crossfire – and I don't regret one second of it! There will never be another game (and community) like this :)
TosspoT, I know you've moved on, but you're still my favourite shoutcaster :D <3
Uhm you missed 1st April by a few months!

Seeing how many ppl are posting in here makes me wonder if this website really is dead?
I haven't really contributed much here in the last few years (work, career, eat, sleep) but I think I visit this website at least once a week to follow up on new journals or re-reading old content.
It almost developed into a ritual for me while waiting on the airport for my flight home every friday.

Besides the loss of all the content here I feel like the biggest loss to me would be the possibility to stay in contact with all the great people I met here. Go guys PM me your linkedin or facebook!

12 years, 4 months and 18 days and I will stay till the last second! :)
Sad, but we knew this day would come.

Thanks for everything (all the admins & the community)!
ufff... what great times we all had here and so many things happened on and through crossfire.
LANs, daily journals, spam with loekino and so on. it was long time daily routine to come here and spam and troll and talk shit, goddamn i loved it :D but not only because of fun, the people made it great. thats why some are still in my life even after so many years of inactivity.
so fingers crossed that ronner gonna take it. please add a donate button then.
to not lose contact, come and join discord and lets play some nostalgic games.
we are already a bunch of 170 ppl in there. lets stay together in this hard times :) https://discord.gg/6EyxPv2

i hope this isn't the end and i hope that people will still go on and play some games together.

thanks tosspot for keeping this alive so long.
<3

eilt: oh and when an archive isn't possible, please give us an export profile function. i would love to have at least all my stuff local saved. that would be lovely.
Still remember the day it went from xfire.be to crossfire.nu. Had some great times, too bad the RtCW and ET scenes are inactive. Thanks for keeping this website running for so long :-)

Thanks for all the memories aswell :-)
Thanks Tosspot and everyone else for the absolute blast I had in here.

Hyvät jatkot erityisesti KRP:n entisille jäsenille, ja muille tutuille jotka vielä lukee tätä. Muistakaa että kunnia ei unohdu.
Thanks for everything! ;-)
To paraphrase Shia La-whatever - DON'T DO IT!
bye bye nostalgica
erAse gaming sessions will be missed.

RIP CF thanks for the memories!

I look forward to a certain reply.

Farewell! Shoutout to ET and the community!
I remember having my first LAN with Mortal Gaming back in ... 2004? I think I was around the age of 14-15 or something. Now about 14 years later we are still have two LAN's each year with Reptile, Bryce, Winters, lona, luna, Dest and others (Here is a video of us making some epic food at LAN back when Epic Meal Time was popular: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OTz4ai-A1o). Started with ET, moved on to WoW, PUBG, Overwatch and playing all kinds of games now. Last couple of LAN's we switched aswell from our own houses to blownout Airbnb villa's and we are not planning to stop anytime soon :) Next one is planned in january! Also ET made the foundation for me as the player I am today,. Because of this I was able to progress alot in other games aswell and made me able to travel the world playing games and have some great experiences. I'll also never forget all the great LAN's at Enschede ofcourse. ET and crossfire will always have a special place in my heart <3

ps: A while back I also added a Wolfenstein Displate to my collection: https://displate.com/displate/370958?q=wolfenstein as a remembrance =]
GGS , still the best game ever. Thank you all :) , hope this site stays tho...
Sad to see this journal, have been logging in from time to time to see whats going on.
Thanks for everything that you did for ET and the community.

Shoutout to everybody, thanks for all the memories.
Was fun having wesly puke infront of my house!
Parent
Great memories indeed :D
Parent
KKC for Laif!
Parent
So many names i havent read for ages, just this pool of names would be enough to still play the game... Awesome flashbacks :) *cry*
I went on such a nostalgia trip reading this and seeing all these old names. Brings back some really great memories of my time playing ET with a bunch of fantastic people. I hope the community manages to spur some interest back in to the game and show why this is one of the best communities there is. <3
:( wheres taLa?
All good things come to an end. Thanks for all the memories and good times!
Dont do it.
Created for you RTCW/ET guys a public TS3 Server where players can talk together/play some games and have a lot of fun (ofc for guys who prefer ts3 than discord ^^)
feel free to pm me if you want a private channel, special server groups or icons :) if we get this server full with 64 slots, I'll upgrade to 500 :)
There is also a music bot in main hall, who is protecting you guys from ddos attacks or any cheaters or w/e and welcomes you with relaxing deep house music in main hall :-)
you can also create your own channel when you join, just right click->create channel

this is the ip: wolfenstein.community-ts.eu
True that game is dead. But im just wondering now... everyone crying but nobody play anymore .. why then ? we all just have real life, kids, familly, job etc but for example on sunday/tuesday we still have time once/twice per week / 2weeks to play some 6o6 , 3o3 so we do it. .
btw Big part of ET community still play other shit games like fornite , cs etc so if you dont wanna play ET just deal with it - this is the end.
Sadly, playing ET is kinda hard compared to other games. (matchmaking, takes from 10 s to 2min to find a game)

No one wants to spend their whole evening just finding even that one opponent. Besides, playing casually matchmaking gives you the option to play alone. If you want play ET alone, you have to play on publics, which is just fragfest
Parent
ggs :(
Wow. Going through this journal is a huge nostalgia hit. So many old names posting, so many good memories....

Thanks for everything Toss, and to the community, thanks for everything, good and bad :)

Ciao x
ET was my WHOLE life when I was 12-15 yrs old. I forgot to eat very often and skipped school, coz I played till very late in the night. I enjoyed every moment of it and met some of the best people ever. It was like a perfect way to escape real world. Greetings to all people, especially to Tosspot who kept this game alive and organized great lans throughout years.

If I ever get very rich (not my life goal tho), then I'll make ET great again.

I also heard rumours of a new Wolfenstein MP next year.
Thank you Tosspot for all the good stuff. You are a legend. Stay cool forever.
I miss this community so badly. Would hate to see Crossfire or Gamestv die. Thanks for everything TosspoT!

If anyone would like me to do anything to keep this community alive, I'm up for it, PM ME!
ggs! and if Ronner decides to host the site again, could we have the old xfire site? I think it was the greatest!
