    FAForever has been taken down (the community for SC:FA)

    The admin (Ze_Pil0t) redirected the faforever.com to this forum...

    There is a group of programmers working on a clone for FAF, you can find all the info here: http://scfaf.net/

    Sad things happen, let's hope this new lobby works out!

    It is indeed sad that this has happened.

    The best we can do now is rally together, and pick up where FAF left off. We need to stop arguing about what the cause of this was and whose side someone should be on, and we need to move forward.

    For now this is our plan:

    We are making a new lobby, a fork of FAF. It will be called FAR, as in FAReborn.

    Our current temporary chat is available in the link Chevalier posted.

    Another important site is
    Code:
    (h)ttp://scfaf DOT net/
    Remove the first () and add a . where it says DOT.

    Yes. We are making it a point to be completely open source on the new lobby, FAR.

    This is a lot of suffering for the Sup Com community.
    We will do our best to reborn ... again.

    Greetings to the PA community

    Good luck! You've proven you are good at that once before.

    Really sad to see a community success story destroyed in a fit of pique. I hope it will show how FAF was greater than one man. Good luck to you.

    What about the fact that people contributed 4,000 euros to the FAFNext project?

    Zep may be gone, but we will prove we don't need him to re-establish a coomunity driven server for FA!

    They got screwed over. Pure and simple.

    All that money has gone into something we cannot even use anymore, and we couldn't rescue the code for that AFAIK. (I may be wrong on that but in any case, even on FAF, it was not even available to be used the last few months.)

    The hell?

    Like, why bother shutting FAF down? And linking it here?!?

    Something doesn't seem right here.

    Oh no! I just started getting into FAF a month ago, I've been playing it every day for weeks now. Looks like I picked the wrong time to start playing :(.

    I really hope someone gets a lobby back up again, one way or another. To be honest, I've been enjoying FAF far more than PA recently.

    EDIT: Google cached pages confirms the shutdown will likely be permanent.

    Seen a comment or two about us possibly having a hand in the redirect. For the record: we did not.
