EA Banned me from Battlefield V
So, I received Battlefield V with the purchase of my MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z. I have never been a huge FPS player, mostly racing games/SIMS. Of course back in the day the original Modern Warfare and a few Battlefield games, but found out I really suck and die way more than I kill, lol.
Anyway, I got an email from EA stating that I had been banned permanently from online play for cheating. I played through most of the campaign and decided to jump online in some TDM to see how the new card played with my upgrade to a 9700K and get some benchmarks. I was online for one round and quit to analyse frame rate and such. Wasn't online for over twenty minutes.
In the email it did not state what was flagged as the cheat, possibly Afterburner, Icue, HwMonitor or task manager? I have never had the desire to load any kind of cheat in nay game during the twenty years I have been gaming on PC. Ifigure it had to be one of these monitoring programs as I had them all running.
Needless to say, I will never buy an EA game again and will buy through Steam, which is my main source of game anyway.
Any insight to what may have caused this would be appreciated. I have emailed EA and they said they had reviewed the case and will not lift the ban.
