What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

At Versus, we're working on solving a problem that cuts both ways: gamers hate ads, and brands hate that gamers don't click their ads. By allowing people to compete for cool prizes, we give gamers a fun way to raise the stakes and help brands reach them in ways that aren't rage-inducing.
