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.

Thank you all (incredibly humbling 120,000~ players to be exact) for giving this server a chance and helping shape its history, creating so many pleasant memories over so many years for myself and the entire community.
It has truly been an extraordinary ride filled with so many memories for me and knowing that many others feel the same fills my heart with joy.

To celebrate, we've prepared you something special to celebrate our decade-long run in the TF2 community. Have a look!

Anniversary Event (Oct 13-Oct 31)
  • A new seasonal shop has been opened and includes ALL limited modules & items that used to be available in the past. Get your hands on very rare goodies while you can!

    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!
