RIP in peace Xfire
Xfire is shutting down this Friday. Head to export.xfire.com to be placed in a gigantic queue and download your stuff.

Been a loyal user since 2007 but honestly, the writing was on the wall. Surprised it took this long, tbh

Unsurprising. XFire basically died when they changed owners years ago IMO. I really wish they hadn't since Steam was still such a frustration to use, but now the masses (and most games) are on the platform anyway.

It was my site, I skipped out once they started adding non features like animated adverts, though i heard they were short lived.
They set the bar for what steam would later be, for that I should be thankful, additionally, the clock overlay stopped me being late to things a million times.
You are #7462 in queue
Ouch... Better than needing to spam F5 though.

Evolve is the best replacement I've found, as it has game time tracking, voice, and VPN. Other stuff I don't use includes the in-game overlay with browser, screenshots, video recording, and Twitch broadcasting. The new slogan is also a huge improvement. The client is very solid overall.
