[Rock Paper Shotgun] EA Origin Bans: Update Edition

Most exceptional perhaps is Aaron, who after receiving a 72 hour ban was told by EA support they couldn’t help because “the game developers control this”. Pardon? His crime? Someone else swearing on the forum, with his username in their post

If you guys use battlelog forums watch what you post... and quote. EA also wiped out an entire bf3 platoon for swearing on the "platoon presentation".

That is ridiculous...

Isn't this game rated M? Although I haven't played through the BF3 campaign, I can definitely remember A LOT of cussing in the BF:BC2 campaign.

Lol, getting banned for swearing in an adult game inwhich the characters swear during cutscenes is just pathetic. Shame on you ea.

I once got lifetime banned for cursing at a bunch of kids on gears of war for the xbox....a mature game. But a year later my account worked...still haven't owned an xbox since then.

And people still buy games with an EA logo on them? Wow, some people have no self respect or principles.

They have a monopoly on games, thats why.

Wish DICE and EA had a divorce..

Wow, after reading up on Aaron's story (he posted details including a call to EA on the escapist forums), I can't even decide which part is the most ridiculous. The fact that being banned from forums prevents you from playing games (multiplayer or single player), that you can be banned for such a ridiculous reason, or that EA knows both of these are going on and refuse to do a thing about it. In the phone call, he even says he can no longer access Bad Company 2 which he purchased through Steam, not Origin.

I hate to jump on popular hate wagons, but EA seems to have written the book on how to treat your customers like crap. And "treating the customers like crap" doesn't even do it justice here. Taking back content the customer paid for because of a forum ban is theft in my book.

That takes the piss. I haven't yet bought BF3 and now I DEFINATLY won't.

Dick move EA, dick move.

And yet people so happily love Valve and slob on their knob every-time a game that uses steamworks is announced. HELLO! But that is just as bad as origin. It's not right for any company to hold MY game hostage unless I decide to fork it over to them.
