Halsoft Leagues add unparalleled excitement and competition to gameplay. Players love them because they’re rewarded for doing well and visiting often. Site owners love them because they make the gaming website much more attractive to both users and site sponsors.

Several sites offer tournament and ladder applications, but require your players to leave your site to use them, and register with the other site. They also require players to self-report game results, which can result in conflicts. And because you have no control over the advertisements on these sites, your players are tempted by your competition’s ads each time they log on to report results. Halsoft Leagues not only offers your customers added value, it gives you many high-interest pages for your own ads.

Halsoft Leagues is a stand-alone product that runs in a fully managed ASP environment. Halsoft Leagues fully integrates — invisibly — with your existing games and web site. Your customers never have to leave you. And they won’t want to!
