Deadliest Catch Fantasy Game: FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

posted: 03/31/14

I tried to login and received a message that I was not registered. Do I have to re-register?

Are you trying to login through your email account when you originally registered your account through Facebook? If so, login through the Facebook service option. If you did login through your email address, make certain that you typed in both the address and password correctly. Remember that your address and password are case sensitive.

I signed up with both Facebook and email. How do I use just one account?

Each and every DCFG user account is tied to either a single Facebook account or a single email address. Any attempt to sign up with both Facebook and email will essentially create two uniquely separate accounts. It is recommended that you log in in the same way each time you sign in - either through Facebook OR email.

I received my confirmation email and selected the link to verify my account. When I tried to login to the game, I received a message telling me I must first confirm my email address.

Make sure you are logging in with the same account you registered with. Perhaps you are trying to login with an email account when you originally signed in with Facebook. Perhaps you registered with a different email account.

I'm all set up, registered, and have set up my crew. Unfortunately, each time I try to log back into the game, it asks me to recreate my profile.

Make sure you are using a web browser that is compatible with the DCFG game. The supported browsers are: Google Chrome , Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 8 (or higher).

Is there a way that I can directly compete with my friends?

Head-to-head competition with your friends is provided through Facebook. To access this feature, both you and your friends must use Facebook to register with the game. You can invite your friends by selecting the "friends" tab in the standings section and then choosing "invite friends". You can also access this feature in your profile settings. Once your friends have accepted the invitation, their avatar will appear in the friends tab in the standings section. Their stats, along with your own, will be updated each week.

This week's episode of The Deadliest Catch just concluded. Why can't I edit my crew?

The end of each aired episode of The Deadliest Catch is the time we start calculating scores and updating the leaderboards. During this period, the crew management settings are locked down as to not interfere with the weekly updates. The locked down period generally lasts four hours, after which the crew management settings once again become available and you can start to once again edit your crew for the week.

Can I register without a Facebook account?

Yes. If you are not a Facebook user, you can register with your personal email address. To register with your email address, simply select the "or use your email address" register link below the "connect with Facebook" button on the main page. However, if you already have a Facebook account, we recommend using this as your means of registration. Through Facebook registration, you will have access have the added functionality of friend specific standings. This feature enables you to compete directly with your friends in a weekly battle for dominance.

I am receiving weekly email notifications. Is there a way to remove my email address from the mailing list?

Our email notifications are meant to inform you of any major announcements concerning the game along with weekly reminders to update your crew. To remove yourself from the mailing list, simply click the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of the email.
