Winter Stadium + PumpKing's Arrival is here!
15-12-2019 17:00

Christmas is coming, and we've got a few treats in store for you today!

A brand new festive makeover for Stadium has come to the servers, and the final node for the PumpKing's Castle Campaign has been unlocked!

A new surprise is in store on the servers, too... play on any eligible King of the Hill or friendly map with a control point and you might encounter a brand new random event!

That's all from us for now, but we've got big things in the works for this Christmas! We're sure you're going to have a smashing time with it, so look forward to our major Christmas update coming soon!

Keep an eye on the group or join our Discord[dfs.tf] server to stay up to date with more news and announcements!

Campaign System Changes
23-11-2019 18:18

As you know, we've been including Campaign events with seasonal updates for about a year now, allowing us to provide you (ideally) fun and interesting challenges and fulfilling rewards. Like the leveling system that came long before it, our goal with Campaigns is to give you engaging goals to keep playing on DFS from getting stale or uninteresting.
Recently, with the most recent Campaign, we've recieved plenty of feedback about the Campaign system, and we're glad you're making your gripes with it known so we can do our best to address them.

Many of you have stated that the time limit on Campaigns makes completing them much more stressful than they ought to be, for fear of missing out on rewards, being left behind as other members progress together, and so on. We aim to make Campaigns challenging and subtantial, but we've seen feedback and behaviour that tells us we might've gone a step too far, making them more stressful than they are fun.

With the crux of the issues being the fear of missing out on rewards, we're addressing the problem by removing deadlines from Campaigns. You'll still have a limited time to purchase the pass for an active Campaign, but once you own the pass, the missions are yours to complete at your own pace, with no time limit.

This won't apply to older Campaigns which have already concluded, but PumpKing's Castle and all future Campaigns will no longer have deadlines for completing the missions, only for purchasing the Campaign pass.

Certain cosmetic items will continue to be exclusive to Campaigns, but the Pumpkin Baskets rewarded in this Campaign will return: future Campaigns will continue to give you the chance to earn older exclusive Campaign rewards. You won't be able to obtain the final rewards from older Campaigns (e.g. Transcendent and Shadow Puppet Hat Kid Outfits) however, as these items are intended to be an exclusive mark of honour for those who manage to complete their respective Campaigns.

Even if you don't manage to obtain any older rewards via Pumpkin Baskets or the forms they take in future Campaigns, Campaign rewards are and will continue to be available to trade and sell on the Auction House.

We hope these changes address the problems you've had with the Campaign system, and we appreciate your feedback!

One final note, we're working towards a content update that will be released soon, bringing you the final campaign mission as well as a new threat that you'll hopefully enjoy taking down. Look forward to it!

7 Years of DFS
13-10-2019 18:03

Seven.

It has been seven whole years since I have launched this wonderland full of fun, madness and entertainment. What started as a small group of friends wanting to have fun and mess around together has grown into a fantastic community full of fun people, dedicated regulars and a team that's pushed DFS to be bigger and better than I could have ever imagined seven years ago.
It seems like such a long time ago now since the beginning of the servers that it's sometimes hard to realize how important these seven years have been. From moderators who ensure the servers stay peaceful and fun, to developers who create the content that makes the servers unique, to all the community members who join our servers to have fun and engage with the rest of the community, you have shaped the very foundation of our server and what it's become over the years. Random Fortress (and it's spinoffs), silly plugins, whacky events, and even charity events with other communities, we've seen it all. It's all thanks to everyone of you that we were able to come this far.

It has been such a bumpy long road with the current state of TF2. But we are still very dedicated to DFS, bringing in more fun and newer things across the servers and to the community.

In fact we are already working on a very spooky update about to come soon for Halloween, as well as plans for content later this year and into 2020! Make sure to bring a big bag of candy and pick out your best looking costume soon!

It is all thanks to everyone, the community, the staff members, the developers and the generous donators that we were able to keep on going for this long and still plan to, I can't thank everyone enough because without you, DFS wouldn't be where it is right now and today.

As always, me and the staff team hope you'll still come to hang out with us on the servers and continue to keep the wackiness and fun alive for years to come. DFS' story is far from over, and we're committed to making the server the best it can be.


To celebrate the 7th anniversary of the creation of DFS, the servers will now be running x5 XP boost for an entire week. In addition, if you login during the event, you'll receive an exclusive badge and a celebratory item for free!

We have made so many great moments and memories here, lets look forward to making even more together, here is to another 7 years of DFS!

Happy Birthday DFS!

The DFS Survey 2019 + DFS Map Removal Polls 2019
23-09-2019 16:41

Hey everyone, we are doing yet another revamped DFS survey this year to gather feedback, suggestions and any other information we can get from everyone to improve DFS as much as we can!

If you're interested, please use the link given below and give us your thoughts on how we could improve DFS more! We greatly appreciate any and all feedback we receive from you all and will reward you with a Community Box if you choose to enter!

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1c-mOlWWXpEy4fTfdrzWMPRH4eq1mxrCLWCPGBpOeA3k


In other news, we are also doing a yearly map removal poll that includes all and the latest maps DFS currently runs as well!

If there are certain maps you feel like don't fit DFS and aren't played at all, and you'd rather see them removed instead then please consider voting to the poll links below:


The polls are alphabetically sorted for each part which should hopefully make it easier for you to vote.

Please do consider taking our survey and voting in the map removal polls so we can try our best to improve DFS and our map rotation as much as we can!

Feel free to join our Discord server[dfs.tf] to be notified about server announcements and changes earlier as well as the server events.

Have fun everyone!
