Live Issues & managing matches

Created On by FACEIT Customer Services


Players can quickly call an admin from the match room and competition organizers can control their tournament better than ever before.

The aim of the Live Issue System is to

  • Give you control over your tournament
  • Allow players to report issues (tickets) and for you to quickly resolve them

The Live Issue System is only available to official competition organizers on the platform.


Players: How to contact the organiser

Contact admin button on the tournament match room

  1. Click the contact admin button on the match room
