Curse LLC (formerly Curse, Inc., and doing business as Curse) is an online game portal and network of gaming websites founded by Hubert Thieblot in 2006, and currently run by its President, Donovan Duncan. The company is headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, and has offices in San Francisco; New York City; Los Angeles; Brighton, UK; and Berlin, Germany. Curse LLC is owned and operated by Twitch, an Amazon subsidiary. Claiming to be the "number one resource for core online gamers," Quantcast estimated monthly unique traffic in 2013 in excess of 30 million visitors. Curse has several primary functions, the most notable of which include an add-on and modification service called Curse Client for such games as World of Warcraft, Rift, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Terraria, Kerbal Space Program, and Minecraft, a collection of over 1000 gaming wikis known as Gamepedia, and a Voice over IP (VoIP) service called Curse Voice.
Curse formerly sponsored a professional team, known collectively as Team Curse, that competed in League of Legends and Call of Duty, which in addition to various high-profile wins have garnered sponsorship from companies such as Nissan, Alienware, and Cooler Master. In January 2015 Team Curse merged with Team Liquid under the name of the latter organization.
While Curse initially offered modifications and add-ons alone through their Curse-Beta website, offerings have expanded to include Wiki services, the Curse client, CurseForge, CurseVoice, Union for Gamers, BukkitDev, and in-house content produced for YouTube.
On August 16, 2016, Curse announced that it had agreed to be acquired by Amazon.com Inc. via its subsidiary Twitch Interactive for an undisclosed amount. On December 12, 2018, Wikia announced that they had acquired Curse Media.
