Origin Bans No Longer Cover Solo Play

A new Electronic Arts Account Suspension Policy indicates that being forum-banned from EA's Origin service will no longer result in being prevented from playing single-player games (thanks Blend Games). Here's word:

If you find yourself with a disabled account, please note that you can still play EA games in single-player mode. For PC games you will need to enable Origin's offline mode to play games with a disabled account. Go to the settings tab in Origin (the gear icon) and select Go Offline.

If your account has been disabled, please follow the instructions in this article if you wish to appeal the action.

BTW, this is one reason why I dislike EA's account linking thing. At least on steam, for a long time the forum account was totally separate. Now they let you link them but they aren't forcing anyone too.

Remember how they said LAST YEAR that this was "a bug" and it was "already fixed" and it "wouldn't happen anymore?"

And how all the EA stooges were defending EA and saying it was just "a bug" and it was "already fixed" and it "wouldn't happen anymore?"

Yeah. It wasn't a bug, it wasn't fixed, and it was happily still happening. And I'm pretty sure it's going to keep on happening.

Yeah I recall quite a lot of EA defenders posting on blues and saying about how it was just a bug and not happening anymore. Or that ZOMG there must be more to the story and it simply wasn't possible to do a post and get banned.

For instance:

Note that RPS, like most of their media buddies, is taking people entirely on their word about this shit. James is free to write in whatever bullshit he likes and RPS posts it up as fact. I find it hard to believe that he got his entire account banned due to a forum posting. Like others have said here, there's more to the story that we aren't hearing.

This kid is lying. Like others said, there must be more to this.
Those are posts from the above story blue linked.
