Having spent the past few years building out the Challengermode platform and earning the respect and trust of millions of users and thousands of Organizers in Europe, we’re now ready to open up the platform to the Americas. We’re excited about the opportunity and humbled by the challenge ahead of us.
We don’t take anything for granted and are eager to prove ourselves to gamers, organizers, and game developers in North America, showing them the value and the power of the Challengermode platform.
