CF2 will never die!

Hey people ! 

I write this topic to support curve fever 2 and I would like tournaments don't stop in december, I don't know how it works : If I have to make a poll or like a petition to do it but I think if a lot of people are motivated it might worked !

Any ideas or just a message to support cf2 and tournaments please post here !

-._.-    I'm literally crying right now.....I had no idea someone else shared the same thoughts as me. I truly agree with this and support cf2 very much.Majority of players are complaining about cf3 and saying they will never stop playing cf2 as cf3 does not include popular gamemodes like speed for example.This will keep many players still playing cf2 and YES i think we the players should start a petition so they will get more tournament mods for cf2 rather than stopping tournaments. cf2 will forever be better than cf3......

Question: why do you need tournament mods? Run tournaments yourself if you are so passionate about them. Moderators should be focussed on community work that is relative to the future of the game - Curve Fever 3.

I'm sure the mods can help you if you ask them nicely (since they have some extra freedom to check certain things). Just run one yourself instead of demanding staff to do it for you Wink

I'm sure that they would even consider helping the advertisement of them if you asked REALLY nicely and were well-organised.

First things first...I'm pretty sure if a tournament is runned by someone other than a mod it will be considered ''unofficial''(I have tried to do so myself and had 3 mods advertise for me but people wouldn't participate as it was unofficial) I think that answers your question...

Something to NOTE: There are a lot of players out there who wanna become cf2 mods. Some can't because maybe they are uniformed on how to apply or they can't commit their time to the game...

My suggestion: A forum topic should be made on ''looking for cf2 tournament moderator..'' 

Question for you: Are sure cf3 is the future of the game??? (Maybe sleep on that tonight buddy)

Last thing to note...I WAS NOT DEMANDING ANYONE TO RUN A TOURNAMENT...At least read before you reply @Bronskey

Be careful how you address other players on the forum please. You're making us all look bad. You have your opinion yes but no need to be so aggressive about it. At the moment, Curve Fever 3 is the focus. 

I guess what players want is to be able to compete for titles and other prizes too. The current staff team doesn't have time to do so much work right now. Which is why I think we need more tournament moderators.

I don't need to sleep on it. Flash Player is dying, so Curve Fever 2 is not a practical investment, and Curve Fever 3 is becoming more and more popular as it is developed. I spent 4 years of my life on CF2 and loved it. But things have to move on Smile

I have given cf3 many tries, and honestly believe it needs more time developing before it replaces cf2 tournaments. Also I told geert that I won't play cf3 anymore because when i asked him for thins, he gave them to the other team. GG.

@Bronskey : Flash player is dying, indeed, but there is still lot of time before the end comes. Personally, I think that cf3 came too early, because players still like cf2 and lot of players still play it. It would've been better if cf3 came some months later.

Its not an attack, just my opinion, and im probably not the only one who thinks that.

Greats,

There is no fight to have between cf2 and cf3, they are different games and the question is not to know if we focus on cf3 or cf2, the question is to know if developpers will continue to develop and support cf2. Cf3 has nothing to do with it because players are not looking for the same things on this game. My shared feeling is to keep playing on cf2 for a while and for that purpose we need to have OFFICIAL tournaments which give motivation to the players. Of course it would be awesome if the development on cf2 continue but for the moment we are just asking for not stopping the official tournaments. And cause everything is about business I'm not sure that stopping cf2 development would be more financially interesting than trying to keep players on this game.

Of course it's my point of view and I'm not trying to convince people, it's just about trying to do something to make this game live longer, even a bit.

Actually I agree that the release was a little premature. That's an opinion I share with you. The frustrating bugs were a game buster for a large proportion of players, although I think the response of the developers was very swift and hard-worked which should be respected. 

Lol nitro, that's sad Sad Maybe they were meant for you but he placed them in the wrong place by accident! I'm sure next time, you will get those precious thins.

But uhm, yeah.... tournament mods are focussing on CF3. Running one tournament a month is already stressful and time consurming so demanding them to do 2 is not really fair. I think a lot of people don't appreciate that.

Instead I suggest to a few players, who love Curve Fever 2 tournaments, that they should come together to organise something themselves. If there is organisation, trust and entertainment then it will be successful. Mods will probably offer prizes too. Take a look at Hard Drop's 2v2v2v2 tournaments, for example. They were really awesome! 

Anyone discussing here telling that they would be interested in doing such a thing?

Nitrogen Dioxide said: I have given cf3 many tries, and honestly believe it needs more time developing before it replaces cf2 tournaments.

^ agree 100%

I don't say cf3 could never replace cf2, I see it has potential. But at the moment it is no option for me and for a lot other players (ofc there are other reasons aswell) since  no GSPEED is possible </3 (where the mooh are the erasers&bubbles/three circles - at least make it possible to include them in the classic mode).

at least one thing the cf2 community could expect geert and the devs to do. To make a banner on the right side of the room browser with some information and a link to Alans Instructions how to set up the Adobe Projector.
There are so many people who love to play cf2 but dont know about the (almost) lag free standalone version and have no idea that their browser wont support flash in couple weeks (idk the exact date).

Hmm...Bronskey I think you missed a point there.

If a player organizes a tournament it is considered UNOFFICIAL. For a tournament to be OFFICIAL it has to be organized and announced by a mod. If it was so easy to organize tournaments then there would not have been any tournament mods from the start.

My suggestion: A forum should be made on looking for cf2 tournament mod ( As many cf2 players are willing to contribute to the game)

On the part about the flash player dying.....Does this mean there will be no other way to play the game in the future?---Because if there is many people will do anything to keep playing it and most players have started downaloading the so-called ''flash projector'' I don't know how it will work, but if there's a way to play it then there will surely be people playing it. Yes 3

They can be made official. There just doesn't need to be a mod dedicated to it. Get a group of friends, say you are gonna organise a tournament once a month and people then know when the tournament will be. If the mods see it as a professional job then I can't see why it couldn't be made official. The CF2 tournaments were always on the last Saturday of the month. Make it then Wink

And by Flash Player dying - it is being disabled by default on all major browsers due to major security issues (scary stuff). You will likely be able to play on the Projector in the way described in the link, yes. You can be sure this will have a hard influence on the player base though. It then becomes a question whether CF2 is financially sustainable.

There would be so many players who'd want to organise the tournament and because of that it could be poorly planned. There could be a lot of problems letting anyone organise a tournament like that. And what would be the prize(s)?

So many people want to contribute to this game. They want to be part of the Curve Fever team. We do need an extra one or two moderators still working on Curve Fever 2. A sign-up at the end of the month, a schedule to be made under one hour, finals to be recorded...That's all there needs to be done. Getting one or two more moderators on the cf team will only strengthen it. It will help Geert and developers focus on Curve Fever 3 without any unnecessary problems. Removing official tournaments will really have a negative impact on this game.

Please don't do it.

Well.....Guess it's up to Geert to either lose over 60% of Curve Fever players or do otherwise. There should be no reason to stop supporting Curve Fever 2. Clapping

xD unholy, 60%? Who should be those 60%? there are enough guests, which dont mind changing from cf2 to cf3... there are a couple of guys like u who think they are the whole community.... Cf loses 100 prem guys, lets see who cares more, Geert who gains 100 young people who invest their pocket money into gems for each prem cf2 guy who leaves, or u, who will end up standing alone in the rain without knowing how to deal with his cf addiction...

ofc this is sarcasm and 100 for 1 is also completly wrong, but I hope u understand what I wanna tell with it^^

I think many more players will be happy to help out which is why Geert needs to open an application process searching for two more tournament moderators for cf2. I don't see any downsides for this. So why not?

IIRC - Never before has a tournament moderator solely managed two tournaments in one month. It's a lot of work; however, we just got our new tournament moderator and we will announce him/her soon on the forum.

TheGordon is still organizing clan tournaments for Curve Fever 2. That's a plus.

CF2 official tournaments are at the last weekend of each month ideally

CF3 official tournaments are the at the first weekend of each month ideally

Ultimately, the future of CF is Curve Fever 3. And it makes sense that moderation aligns with development. Therefore CF3 tournaments are a pretty darn big priority. Ultimately though, we understand there are passionate CF2 players and we will consider the future of CF2 official tournaments.

That's just the thing. There won't be 1 tournament moderator managing these tournaments. There needs to be 1 or 2 more tournament moderators for cf2. The future of this game might be Curve Fever 3, but none of us can argue that there aren't any more players passionate about cf2 and this is why it would be nice to have someone managing official tournaments. If you don't want any addition to the staff team, it might be helpful to use forum moderators or such to help with managing the tournaments. These past few months, 3 tournaments have been held each month and it's been evident that it could be managed and handled well. This is what majority of the community wants.

Forummods are not tournamentmods. Of course they can help fill in results, create locked rooms and so on(as almost every mod did it at the past), but the maintask to handle sign-up and create schedule is task of tournamentmods and this also takes most of the time.

If you want to point out the world cup, then you should remember that there was an official FFA tournament like a normal tournament, but the team-1vs1 tournament was splitted into games, so it wasn't that much at once. Also the sign-up was long time before and the tournament schedule had more time to be created. They just had to enter results(where the other mods helped sometimes). So yeah the tournamentmods have worked more than usual, but there wasn't as much work concentrated at a short period.
 

Even if I had to do my tasks as forummod daily and not just a few days of the month, I wouldn't have wanted to switch with the tournamentmods. There is a lot of pressure on them and the work is very hard, so they definitely earn my respect. You shouldn't expect them to handle this more often then they do it now.

No one's asking for another world cup with 3 separate tournaments. What we're asking is that nothing changes and we continue with the way this game has worked for quite a while now. Of course being a tournament moderator is hard work. And that is exactly why there needs to be more. If there's just one individual then they'd have to do a lot. With 2 more tournament moderators, the work is divided and it'll be less difficult. I'm not asking forum moderators to do the work of the tournament moderator's work. The staff team is supposed to support each other regardlessly. 

You wouldn't get any random person to become a tournament moderator. This would be someone who is aware of the pressure they'd have to be under, who is prepared for the hard work that goes with their job. I mentioned in my other comments too that a tournament moderator needs to do sign-up, make a schedule and be there on the day to make sure the tournament runs effectively. How many people do you think that requires? In my opinion, two people and another moderator just to help out which they have been doing for quite a while now. There are no downsides. Official tournaments are at the end of the month and we've been doing this for so long. What has changed now?
