Xenogamers in 2024

Recommended Posts

Where are they now?

 

tf2: dead

csgo: dead

everything else: dead

 

tf2 killed by poor decision making by higher ups and refusing to change, results that had clear consequences way back in 2019 that proved to be a pivoting point in the community, had anyone stepped up and put their foot down and said “this is what we need” things maybe could have been different, now the community is a shell of it’s former self.

I wasp 13 years old when I first joined a xenogamers server in 2011, my first love and passion was counter strike source, I am now 26 years old and coming up on 13 years as a member, i transferred from the css division around 2012 to tf2 and i have been there since, i have always watched and rarely been involved in the community as I prefer to stay away from clan politics but it’s just sad to see the state of complacency and incompetence, granted everyone moves on and lives will be lived, but there should have been a safeguard to pass the torch, i could not tell you who is even staff anymore for the servers. At this point there is no recovering what has been lost, I just wish I could have done more for the community when there was still time for a change.

hello i am also a former xenogamer

people have grown up at this point. as much as i'd love to revive this community again and play for hours on tgh, i really dont have time to be active anymore if the servers were still populated. in the time since xg has died for me, i've graduated high school, went to and dropped out of college, started working full time, bought a house, took on my first house payment, and turned 22. some people have probably gone on and started their own families at this point.

i dont have as much history with this community as a lot of other people do but being part of something like this has really shaped me and helped me grow as a person. i even still talk to a lot of people i have met here on the daily. but i think the days of forming big online communities like this are over. when was the last time you went to the tf2 server browser and looked for a trade server that wasnt FirePowered or a server that runs 24/7 trade_plaza. Or the last time you booted up CS and didnt go straight to comp ranking. people generally dont flock to these kinds of servers these days.

i yearn for the old days i really do. it was a time i was much happier and a time i could say i enjoyed existing. but ive come to terms that its probably never coming back.
