If you've never visited MefightClub
, or maybe you drifted away because of the server capacity issues we were having for a while a while back, the site's had a big round of updates, and right this very minute is a great time to come play games and hang out with us!

MefightClub is the (soon to be 5-year-old) MeFi offshoot site, primarily for MeFite gamers and friends and family of, but welcoming to all. We tend to talk mostly about video games, and mostly on PC, but we have lots of people who play on other platforms, and we have active discussions about non-video gaming too, and welcome more. We're up to around 2500 registered users these days, and going strong.
I've been working hard on the site recently -- upgrade all the things!
-- and the design has gotten a fresh coat of paint, and now smoothly rejiggers itself for whatever size screen you're on, all the way down to phone browsers. There are lots of new features to play with, with more in the greased-up functionality pipeline. The site is much
faster now, and hopefully our struggles with server load last year are well behind us.
The community is the same great bunch of people
it always has been, and although summertime is always a bit of a slow time for gaming as people get out and explore the big blue room, there's always something happening.
Our mission is to try and create a comfortable space where the sexism, racism, and overall sophomoric behaviour that exists in so much of the gaming world is not tolerated. We run some great, friendly, fun-focused servers for current and older games, including our two long-running (and now free-to-play) Team Fortress 2 servers and the Aporkalypse
(well, now it's the NewPorkalypse, with a whole new world, but you can still portal your way through to the original Aporkalypse), where some amazing and cryptic Events have been occurring of late.
So, come and join (or rejoin us), and hit up the Introduce Yourself thread to say hi. We are a friendly bunch, and we'd be happy to have you. Per rotato
