Free Fire Esports India took their social media page to announce the disqualification of multiple teams from the event. The teams are disqualified for not following the competitive ruling. The officials wrote,
” Player FF-DUKER from FLICKR FORCE has been found to have participated in FFC on multiple teams.

2. FLICKRFORCE (ID: 3004836186) as FF-DUKER
The player has breached Rule 4.1.2, “Each player must only be a registered member of one team. Players found to have played on multiple accounts and multiple teams will be disqualified.”
FF-DUKER and both FLICKRFORCE and STONE’CRUSHERS are disqualified from Free Fire City Open. Their Visakhapatnam Finals slot will be awarded to the next eligible team.”
Two players allowed to use the new accounts
LB-Dev from team Last Breath and GHS-SOHRAB from team Greedy Hunters reported that they lost access to their account and appealed to switch to another account. After in-depth investigation and verifications, Garena has accepted the player’s appeal and will allow LB-Dev and GHS-SOHRAB to play in FFCO as well as FFPL using a new account with the condition that the old accounts are permanently suspended. As both the players will be playing from a new account, they are given an exception from Rule 2.1.2 Rank and Level Requirement.
