DFS: The End(..?)

Disp on September 5th, 2023 at 3:00pm
And that wraps up the finale event!

Thanks for dropping in for our last DFS event ever! We've had more ideas for the finale event that we've unfortunately had to scrap out of concern for instability, but we hope you've enjoyed it regardless!

The DFS Discord may be around for the future if you'd like to get in touch with the community members.

If you haven't seen it already, please check out Heavich's Meet The Random Fortress: Finale below!
If you've missed them, here are the group photoshoots we took during both of the finale events

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=3028821272 (a whopping 64 players on both servers at the same time!)

We also have surprise project(s) in the works that might happen if everything lines up; stick around to find out!

It has certainly been a very long ride. I'm glad to have contributed to a lot of smiles, fun memories, and new friendships.
Growing up with DFS and my friends within the community since childhood meant everything to me, and I'm sure there are many others who feel the same.

Regardless, thank you so much for being a part of this amazing last decade alongside me.

I'll see you on the other side. Take care, everyone.

DFS: The Finale

Hey all! It's still hard to believe that it's been months since the tenth birthday of DFS, isn't it?
Life has been changing a lot in the last few years which I'm sure a lot of you can relate to, time flies really fast doesn't it? After a ton of changes and a multitude of drafts or so of this announcement, it is finally ready to be posted.

I'm sure many of you came in with a lot of different expectations, ranging from a reboot of the servers to continuation of that ancient DFS RPG game. But this announcement is for a different cause; a very important message to the entire DFS community.

10 Years With DFS

Disp on October 13th, 2022 at 4:07pm
Exactly today, ten years ago, I decided to start a server as a fun space for myself and my friends, having no idea how big of an experience and a journey it'd become for not only me but many others.

What started as a small fun pastime, despite me being very young at the time alongside with my lack of experience, ended up growing into a large and fantastic community of its own, which I'm still grateful for. Most of you should already know the history of this community thanks to the previous anniversary announcements, so I'll keep it short and concise for you all.

    Disp on January 18th, 2022 at 7:35pm
    Hey all, it's been quite a while, and we apologize for the lack of big news as of late. Things have been quiet, but we're still very much around and are dedicated to making your experience as enjoyable as possible.

    We're still very much around, much especially thanks to all of you and your support, the community can really make a big difference, and I'm grateful enough to keep things going for my passion project, DFS.

    DFS Nine Year Anniversary Update!

    Disp on October 13th, 2021 at 10:50pm
    Can you all believe it? It's been a miraculous NINE whole years since I've first launched DFS, crazy to think how fast time passes huh? A lot has changed since then and I'm honestly not only quite shocked but truly grateful that this wonderful community has managed to keep going for this long, and hopefully even more!

    I was nothing more than a very young wee child when I first launched DFS, having no idea how far it'd go or how big it'd become, one thing I can say is that it has been a very long and amazing journey I've enjoyed taking with all of you. I'll admit now that I unfortunately don't have much free available time to focus on my passion project as much as I could in the past, so I've been slowly passing the torch away to some very cool and capable people who will give their best to keep you all happy and the DFS community going forward throughout the future!
