are never far away. When a player needs help it is accessible
and instant, and if there is a problem with the platform,
support is available in live chat or via email. When individuals

People like to compete, and they battle to get to the top of
leaderboards whilst competing against friends and opponents
alike. In any game, the rules, scoring and reward are transparent

comes to employee referrals, recruiting and content, the same

activity is out of normal working hours, it is important to plan
an ease of use and operation strategy.
