Q. Installed the app but confused on what to do next. Any help?
Q. Why am I not receiving my rewards (gems/money/DJ Alok ) after playing well?
A. We apologize for this. Rewards are directly handled by the respective guild admins and game.tv does not interfere to ensure fairness. However in such a case, reach out by our direct response form with your username, guild & tournament details to help us track down and ensure you get your due rewards.
Q. Registered early but still not selected. This has happened repeatedly. Why so?
A. As our guilds grow in popularity, tournaments reach full capacity faster. Best solution is to either join more guilds and/or register and check-in as quick as possible.

A. Prizes are granted for winning tournaments, and guilds handle it independently. game.tv is not involved in this process whatsoever. This ensures fairness and competition. So join more guilds, play well, win big.
Q. Why does it take 2 weeks for prizes to be deposited?
A. This time period ensures that the right person receives the prize and no mistakes are made. Also, as we process loads of prizes daily, time is required to sort through them all. We appreciate your patience for the same.
Q. I won the match but the results say otherwise. What is happening?
A. The match results can be updated either manually or automatically. The error happens when the tournament host chooses the former and forgets to update it on their end. The best solution is to contact them via the match or guild chat to correct the results.
Q. Why can I not access a particular guild I used to be a member in?
A. This is mostly because you have been banned from the particular guild, for using profanity, abuse or something similar. As a platform, we allow guild admins to act independently and cannot interfere. You'll only be able to access the guild again when their admin unbans you.
Q. Where is the ID password I need to enter a Free Fire lobby?

Q. How can I enable streaming for my fellow guild members/fans to watch and enjoy?
