A New and Exciting Beginning
Deciding to close several of the Curse community websites wasn’t an easy decision for our company, but we could no longer justify the substantial engineering resources it took to run the properties. No one in our office wanted to see MMO-Champion shut down, so we carefully searched for a solution.

We are happy to announce that we have been able to identify a company with the necessary experience to buy and run these sites (including MMO-Champion), so that the passionate communities will continue to have homes on these long-standing sites. With this, we have started to transfer the sites to Magic Find. As for the staff on these sites, it will be up to them and Magic Find to decide how they’d like to move forward.

It’s a new and exciting beginning for MMO-Champion. We wish Magic Find the best as we say goodbye to several of the properties that helped our company grow into what it is today.

This will be the last update from Curse/Fandom. All future communications will be from the new site owner.

    Ouch. What a shame. I’ve always enjoyed this site

    As I noted back last fall, traffic in the general discussion forum collapsed right after Blizzcon 2018 and never recovered. Once I saw that, I kinda expected this site to get shut down or sold pretty soon. The time to get out is when popularity finally starts heading south.

    Well that was quick. But as long as regular MMO-C poster stays that "very special little buddy" all is fine.

    Are Chaud and Bibi not going to run this website anymore then? I know Bibi has been absent for a while but always hoped he'd appear oneday, not really sure why he stopped posting, assuming he no longer works for MMOC

    Also what is happening to curseforge, is the twitch desktop client not going to be able to download addons anymore, so many unanswered questions

    So, who is this "Magic Find"? I tried googling and found 0 results with several search terms(website hosting, websites owned, etc.)

    Errr, just checking, but you guys do realise this is NOT about the site shutting down, but the site being sold to a company that's actually going to keep it open, right?

    Premium will remain active for at least as long as you paid for, if not longer.
