EA Forum Bans Still Earning Game Bans?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports hearing from players banned from playing Battlefield 3 and other EA games after being banned from the EA forums. This recalls an incident earlier this year where a player found himself locked out of playing Dragon Age II after being banned for misconduct on the BioWare forums. These bans were later lifted by EA who explained it was an error. Now they tell the tale of a few different similar incidents indicating the same policy is still being enforced. The story has an update showing EA's email response to a user explaining his "account will no longer be accessible in any way, and all property, items, and characters associated currently are or will soon be deleted," and they have reached out to EA for a further explanation. Here's their description of how he earned the ban:

Then we heard from James, whose tale is even more extraordinary. He has been permanently banned for using the word “e-peen”. (For those unfamiliar, this is short for “electronic penis”, and tends to be used to suggest someone is egotistically willy-waving.) However, he did not even introduce the word. It was in reply to someone else who’d said it, and responded, “Ah, back to the e-peen talk.” He was originally told this ban would be for 72 hours, but on Saturday received an email informing him that it was now to be a permanent ban from his Origin account, with no further explanation given. It was added that the matter was “now closed”. And, as ever, EA’s live chat and customer support are refusing to help him in any way. He’s also been told that his BF3 characters and levels will be deleted.

Fuck EA.

Fuck Origin.

I'll play Battlefield 3 if it's ever on steam or stand-alone.


These crooks can choke on a bag of "e-peens".
