Where we want to compete is in the international arena. We hone our skills inside Kalaro, as a team, as a league. Then you go out, you compete in Europe, in the US, maybe in Japan and China. You come back again and hone your skills again. In fact, I imagine Kalaro to be like a virtual city. A virtual place, like a bootcamp or training camp for players,” said Kalaro Software Architect Jun D. Lasco at the press briefing in response to a question from Digital Life Asia.
