"someone mentioned the 3SFG server."
Twas I who mentioned 3rd Special Forces Group.
Because I was a regular there and Transistor, who ran it, is a bud of mine and fellow old skule TFC gangsta.
My inside word, from him, was: He lost his DSL after his ISP cut him off over some BS.
With its demise there was NO active non-steam TFC server, until Empyre, another regular on Trans and bro of mine, started his server.
Then his DSL started going to crap (seems to be the pattern with DSL)..so I brought him into HOPE and my bro Bakedbean started a server for the House Of Painful Enlightenment.
Which is currently the ONLY active TFC server on WoN2:
You are welcome to come and get your fix here.
And should there be no humans on, our staff of friendly, courteous Foxbots will help keep your visit an exciting one.
Wherether or not you think steam is the sheenitz or just a steaming pile there of, players still deserve an alternative.
Valve made a mistake in shutting down WoN entirely.
We are not the ones dividing our community-THEY are.
Moreover, they've abandoned TFC...no surprise there...ever since CS hit it big they've treated TFC as a bastard, red-haired stepchild.
It is up to US, the community of players, mapmakers, modmakers and botmakers, to keep it alive.
So I agree with my friends in 3SFG and the I.D. guild-To H311 with Valve, Gabba the Hutt and his minions!
