    Why not? It tracks my gaming time and lets me see which games I have spent most time on.

    Most MMO's provide you with that statistic making it another redundant feature for MMO players.



    VC - Better versions provided else where and most MMO players use these instead.



    Video and Screen capture - Better versions are provided else where and most MMO players use these instead.



    There simply isn't anything provided by Xfire that isn't out there and done better as well as more widely used.



    Nothing wrong if you choose to use it, it's just simply not a tool for your average MMO player.

    No, I did up until about the launch of lotro, but shortly thereafter I deleted it and have not used it since. No issues with it, just dont have any need for it atm.

    Out of my own curiosity, is there a specific reason you are asking?  The reason I ask this is that the most common (yet erroneous) argument against even mentioning x-fire is the phrase "not enough people use it,"  or its variation "I don't know anybody that uses it."

    Not really I have just heard xfire mentioned alot around here and was wondering how popular it was among people on the site.  My hope is this thread doesn't turn into another arguement about if Xfire is useful or not that has already been discussed in many threads.  Just a fun little poll to see how many here are using it.

    you know this site has 2,000,000 users right? 

     

    According to the people on this site, OP's poll with lets say 350 people (50 atm) is not enough to see how many people use Xfire right?

     

    Those people are wrong btw if 350 people answer, there will be an marjon of error of 5.7% 

     

    Xfire has a MUCH lower margin of error when montering play time trends of the gaming community.

    I don't get polled by Gallup every election either, but the results are still intersting to review.  Same as this poll, is it really realistic to expect 1.843.700 people to respond this poll ?  Does it really change what the results tell us ?

    This poll is for fun it has nothing to do with how accurate Xfire is or not.  Even if a large number of people did respond to the poll still would not tell us how accurate Xfire is or not as that number would be a very small amount of the MMO community in general.  Not the point of the thread just something interesting to read on a saturday afternoon.

    I do, just because I have always used it to keep track of my pc game time and I have a few friends who I only talk to through it.

    only EVE is real MMO...but I am impressive with TSW

Those people are wrong btw if 350 people answer, there will be an marjon of error of 5.7%  Nope. It's not a random, representative sample. The randomness of the sample becomes much more important if it's a tiny fraction of the population.

    I don't even understand the need for it,why does anyone have it installed?

    You wouldn't need it to find friends ,otherwise what kind of friends are they if you can only locate them on Xfire.

    Never forget 3 mile Island and never trust a government official or company spokesman.
