EULA are 100% legal in all countries it is a legal contract.

Unless you can point to a specific provision and to what local law it violates they are legal. No matter what you think they are legal and enforceable.

You can put whatever you want into an EULA, it doesn't mean it will hold up under scrutiny and judgment. Saying something is 100% legal in all countries is an over generalization too.

My point was that people think EULA are illegal. They are not as they are contracts. Specific provisions may be unenforceable depending on the clause or local law, but even that in no way makes them "illegal". People need to get it into their brains that EULA are contracts an are enforceable world wide.

Almost nothing on any properly written EULA is unenforceable no matter what county you are in. This is how Xbox is able to obliterate your entire account if you put "Tutorial for 1800 MSP" in your profile.

If EA kills your account because they have proof that You withheld a bug during the beta, then you have no recourse. There is nothing illegal about it. Even if proving it would be quite difficult.
