A year ago today, one man
had a vision
that would bring together
dozens of MeFites
towards the heartwarming common goal of blowing the hell
out of each other in Team Fortress 2.

20 users marked this as a favorite
eventually led MeFi luminary stavrosthewonderchicken
to throw up a simple forum
for everyone to use as a point of contact
- and the MeFight Club
Since then, the loose-knit "clan" has grown and matured: adding a public server
to the mix, the organization of an elite contingent of competitive players
, a webcomic shoutout
, meetups, baked good exchanges, in-house tournaments, and ten-years worth of enjoyment crammed into the last 365 days.
Now, with a current membership of almost 350, the group remains the nicest, coolest, and most fun people who have ever assembled to play games together.
The only requirements for membership are a MetaFilter account, good sportsmanship, and a high tolerance for silliness.
Team Fortress 2 isn't your thing? Well, we also have been known to hunt each other down like dogs, repel alien invasions, cause chaos in the streets of Liberty City, and even occasionally live like Rock Stars.
