QLive DOES NOT pay, I emailed them about this and they said I live outside the UK. Yes I travel between the US and UK for work all the time. This is normal. I then requested my data and found out that they felt like they had to go stalk my twitter page to find out more information about me. Luckily I am a private person, but this is very concerning for a company to do. They should not be trusted. Now on their US version of the game they are offering 3 lives for good reviews on Product Hunt, this is illegal. Hopefully this game gets taken off the app store. Very sketchy.Pros:
Fun to play with friendsCons:
They lie and ban players
I'd collected about $150 in prizing and had around $700 coming in a couple of days from leaderboard prizes. I was cynically banned without evidence and have received no communication from these charlatans at all.Pros:
Easy to winCons:
Bans players without evidence or reason when they have won or are about to win sizeable prizes.
They will ignore your cashout requests and all attempts at contact until they eventually say you were "banned for breaking their TOS." I was told that and my account wasn't even banned. It's their canned reply to someone asking about their money. There are tons of reports of it all over the Internet. Avoid this game unless you want to play trivia for nothing.Pros:
Jmo hosting drunk is funnyCons:
The Q does not pay their winners.
The Q looked like it was poised to take a step forward when they introduced a new game mode in April. Instead they copied a now defunct app but made the game mode worse, and replaced their regular trivia with it instead. While they have increased "total prize pool" from $4,000 to $4,750 a week they have distributed it in a bizarre way. The subscribers only game has been halved and there are now 4 top heavy shows a week of $1,000 but with extremely easy questions. The app features the highest minimum cashout of any trivia app at $25, and it will take you a while to get there since prizes for $1,000 games tends to be ~$1 while their $100 games might net you $0.25. Make sure you don't win too much though because there are widespread reports of The Q suddenly ceasing payments under the guise of a "ban". Don't attempt to get any help in-app, you won't get a response although they have a message feature for it.Pros:
Does not pay players, technical issues are common, prize distribution and degree of difficulty has made it barely worth playing
Ask yourself seriously if you want to work with a company that is as deeply untrustworthy as this one. In their existing app, once you fight the tiny prizes to actually reach their cashout minimum they will just shadowban you, not pay, and ignore all your support requests. You will not get any effective engagement from this company as they have a complete and utter disregard for their actual users.Pros:
Trivia is funCons:
Doesn't pay out
