Mr. Haller commented, "Who among us has not dreamed of striking it rich advancing a skill set that is now useful mostly for waiting in line for latte?  We expect to offer a user experience second to none that will attract players to various styles of competitive gaming from casual to hardcore.  I look forward to working together with the people and resources necessary to deliver our ambition of a full beta test within the next several months."
