Dear community, (please read post fully)
This message comes at the wrong time… I guess it will always be the wrong time…
About 1.5 year ago I joined the moderator team. I didn’t really know what I was doing. I was very new to this and had to followup an amazing lead mod. Trust me… the start wasn’t easy. I have learned many things along the way. How a community like this is so supportive of eachother, how everyone works together and always gives feedback to make sure you get the best game. I have met a lot of talented people along the way. Amazing people who help the mods, devs who put in a lot of work and players who help us workout some complex cases.
Why am I leaving? This year university is really pushing dealines to me. If I moderate and be responsible for all of you, I will do it with my full capacity. Sadly enough, deadlines are packing up and I can’t deal with the stress any longer. I feel like this is also the time to make an end to a beautiful story on a positive note.
I have always tried the best I could for this community. Being Fair, Correct and transparancy were what I valued. I know I have not been famous for some decisions, but all of them were with the best intend. Following rules… guidelines… those empty words, I know it’s annoying and hard. Though, I am responsible to make sure the community makes the best out of this together. The moment I joined I always told myself… “I start this journey and I shall not disappoint myself or the devs.” And so I have tried. Did I pave myself a smooth path? Nah, not always… by far. But making something work isn’t supposed to be easy. This adventure was a challenge and I learned a lot.
Let’s hope I passed my test right? Not to disappoint? Some will surely say I have , but I look back at this myself as something I am proud of. I was able to do more for the game than I ever hoped. I got to pick my own moderators and work together with an amazing team, which I trust in what they do and don’t. Did I pass? I don’t know but I know that I will look back with a smile and be proud on helping this game. CurveFever has found its way into my heart in 2014, something that will never leave.
Some people that deserve a shoutout (sorry if you’re not in there haha…so many people)
@Geert - Thank you, thank you for making this possible. You put your trust in me and allowed me to do this amazing thing. Saying that without you this wouldn’t be possible is correct. I got to meet you and you’re an amazing cool person.
@NoFlavor - Kbye! Hey, that’s an exit even cooler than dropping the mic. Thanks for putting up with me on an almost daily base. Without you I would have not been able to do half. You learned me a lot and guided me through some stressful times. You were the best Community Manager CurveFever has had! Whenever I see an ancient painting meme, I shall send it through
@Rojoss - Cookiemaster6900! Been here for a while and always been the developer you could always stalk for getting some answers. I didn’t really get to meet you in detail but… CurveFever has a lot to thank you for. I got to meet with many developers but you are by far the best one.

@SojaBird - Didn’t really got to talk a lot but we did meet! You seem like a dude who’s always on the job but likes to have a good laugh too. I am sorry I left you out from some great memes I made. I know it wasn’t nice but… I knew that when Sojabird was in the team, he deserved an honourable spot!
@Line - You have been dealing with CFPro tournaments since the start. Thank you for saving me a lot of headaches and weeks I am very happy I got to work with you and you’re an amazing tournament mod. The players should be very happy with you, you are the best tournament moderator in years.
@the_hashtag - BRATWURST JAJA I loved how we could always have such a good laugh with weird noices in voicechat. I had so much fun You have been here for a long time as mod and you are a great value to the team. Thank you for being along my side!
@Community - Thank you players. You didn’t really get to choose me as lead mod but hey… gotta do with what you have right? I have always acted to serve you all in the best way possible. I can’t make everyone happy but I hope I tried my best. You have all inspired me and without all of you playing the game… this would’ve never been possible. Keep curving! I will miss you all
I won’t disappear, no worries I’ll think back with some amazing and funny memories. It has been an honour and I am sad to leave but to every story comes and end. Me leaving is appart from any issues recently. I have been thinking about this for a longer period.
Who knows what the future brings?
CurveFever, thank you.
