Help us pick the next gamemode to add to DFS!

15-09-2018 16:19:48
Hey everyone, we are looking for feedback on what gamemode you all like the most, coincidentally these are all gamemodes we do not have on our servers.

To collect said feedback we made a single choice Strawpoll located at https://www.strawpoll.me/16455609 - if you want to, please select which gamemodes listed in there is your most favourite gamemode. It will help us understand what our players are the most interested in!

(Quick Note: We've also added in dr_playstation and made all DFS quests global throughout all servers, have fun!)

DFS Prime Update Day 3 - Now Out!

18-08-2018 00:50:27
The final day has arrived! We've revealed quite a few things so far, but today we're revealing the biggest things we've had in store!

The final day of Prime Update content is here![dfs.tf]

The servers are finally open again with all the new content! Thank you for patience, now hop on and enjoy all the new content!

Complete list of changelogs below!



Two New Servers!

Our community keeps growing and sometimes two servers isn't enough! To accomodate our growing playerbase, we're doubling up with two new servers!

  • A new EU server located in Falkenstein, Germany with the IP of: 88.99.141.199:27155

  • A new USA server located in Phoenix, AZ, USA with the IP of: 184.171.161.67:27015

Make sure to favorite and join them as well!

With a total of four servers, we now have twice the room for players, and twice the room for fun!

New Donation Deal!

To commemorate this major update, we have a new donation deal starting! Now's your chance to get a custom tag and our brand new pet!

Because this is one of our biggest updates ever, the deal is getting the same treatment - we're including more bonuses than ever before!


If you donate during between August 13th and September 3rd, you will be receiving the following perks on DFS:

  • A new unique Summer Beach themed DFS pet with exclusive effects! (OR a whooping 10,000 credits!)

  • Doubled membership time! Donate now and your Gold or VIP membership's duration will be doubled! Be it donating for a month, 3 months or a year, all of the membership durations you donate for are doubled!

  • Custom Chat Tags are back! If you donate for a membership during this event, you'll gain a custom name tag and chat colour!

  • As a token of my appreciation, any (from a minimum of 5$) PayPal donation you make to support DFS during this event will be rewarded with a Keyless Golden Crate item worth $50 on the DFS servers! (One per person, PayPal donators only.)

I'd like to take a moment off to thank everyone who has shown support to DFS with generous donations throughout the years. Without your support, DFS wouldn't be where it is right now.

Thank you so much for supporting and sticking with us!


New Summer Event!

A new Summer Event rises on DFS!

During between August 13th and September 3rd

  • All XP and Credit rates are doubled, including from active drops and minigames.

  • Additionally, if you have donated or have a [DFS] tag in your name, you will receive quadrupled Credits and XP respectively!

  • New x3 Event chest given to people until this event ends!

  • New minigame focused event coming soon! Keep an eye on DFS boards for more info later on.

New Gamemode!

Randomizer is now added to DFS!

The Randomizer gamemode makes everyone spawn with a selection of random weapons.

Using the /randomizer command on a competitive map will start a vote - if the vote is accepted, the gamemode will change to Randomizer for the rest of the map!

Discord Server

Until now! We're pleased to announce that DFS now has an official public Discord server!

DFS Prime Update Day 2.5...?

15-08-2018 20:50:04
Hey everyone, I know you were all expecting the final day alongside with the release of the update. Sadly, I'm here to inform you otherwise.

We want the update to be completely shiny and clean before launching it and and due to running into several technical issues, we're sad to inform everybody that DFS Prime Update Day 3 will be delayed until tomorrow or Friday at most.

But fear not! We're working extremely hard with our small devteam to make everyone's wishes come true, we just want everything to be ready without having any problems in it.

We are sorry again for the inconvenience everyone, we'll make sure everything is running smoothly and fine before we push everything out.

You should expect to see Day 3 and the complete changelogs alongside with the update launch by tomorrow, if not Friday at most, meaning that it will definitely be out by this week.

Thank you for your patience.

DFS Prime Update Day 2

14-08-2018 21:01:05
One day down, two more to go! We started with the small stuff, but we're building up to even greater things!

Check out today's additions here![dfs.tf]

We're not done yet, though, the best is still to come! Check back tomorrow for the third and final day of The Prime Update!


Do keep in mind the servers are taken off until the update is finished and ready to launch, sorry for the inconvenience but bear with us everyone!

DFS Prime Update Day 1

13-08-2018 21:00:47
It's time for this summer's update and we've been working hard to make it the biggest and best that DFS has ever seen!

Here's what we have in store so far![dfs.tf]

But one just isn't enough - this update is so big we're going to need three whole days to roll everything out. The servers will be down during this time, but what we have in store will be worth the wait!

Do keep in mind the servers are taken off until the update is finished and ready to launch, sorry for the inconvenience but bear with us everyone!

Map Removal Polls + Summer DFS Shop Sale + Staff Applications are now open!

11-06-2018 15:10:14

There are a total of 5 polls made to include all of the current maps from DFS, please be sure to vote for the maps that you feel should be removed from DFS before the polls end!
(And yes, the polls include all of the maps from DFS sorted by alphabetical order. Except for self-made DFS maps of course.)
