EA: Getting Banned In Forums Does Not Get You Banned In Our Games

Illustration for article titled EA: Getting Banned In Forums Does Not Get You Banned In Our Games

Sounds like someone made quite a mistake when they told all of Electronic Arts gamers that if they got banned in the EA forums they'd be banned from playing their games as well. That's right: Totally not true, despite what EA's Command and Conquer manager told folks on Oct. 18. As EAAPOC himself said at 3 a.m. this morning in a new post on the forums it was "inaccurate and a mistake on my part." EA spokeswoman Mariam Sughayer was kind enough to walk us through EA's banning rules for us as well:“Players who have been banned from EA Forums are not automatically banned from online access to their other EA games.” “Posting in EA Forums is enabled by an EA Nucleus account — but access to the forums and access to the games are separate. “Players can be banned if they breach the Terms of Service or Code of Conduct in a forum, game or service. Each forum, game and service is managed independently by customer support representatives responsible for that specific forum, game or service.” So, for a second time now, you can only lose access to a game if you break the game's terms of service or code of conduct. True that can happen through acting out in a forum, but it would be independent from any forum banning.

WRONG, i clearly remember my whole ea online forum AND games, being banned from online, so ea is clearly blowing shit out of its ass. if your gamertag or psn or email is linked to your main ea forum name, you are fucked, right in the facehole, i made a post in that last post too, i was banned from every ea game online from my gamertag as it was linked to my ea forums name, and i was in a debate on their forums, i never swore nothing, but got banned, no warnings either, logged in, "sorry user not privilaged to view", check email "hey what up, it be us EA gaymes. you banned bitch!"

i still cannot play ea games online with my old gamertag, so unless they give me my abilities back to play those games on my old gamertag, they are clearly a shitton of fuck
