Update: EA has corrected this report, saying APOC's statement
is not accurate
. Original Story:
A post on the
EA Support Forums
from APOC, online community manager for Electronic Arts,
outlines a new policy for their new forums, saying users who earn a ban based on
their behavior in the forums will be locked out of all of the EA games tied to
that account. Thanks
. Word is:
Well, its actually going to be a bit nastier for
those who get banned.
Your forum account will be directly tied to your Master EA Account, so if we ban
you on the forums, you would be banned from the game as well since the login
process is the same. And you'd actually be banned from your other EA games as
well since its all tied to your account. So if you have SPORE and Red Alert 3
and you get yourself banned on our forums or in-game, well, your SPORE account
would be banned to. It's all one in the same, so I strongly reccommend people
play nice and act mature.
All in all, we expect people to come on here and abide by our ToS. We hate
banning people, it makes our lives a lot tougher, but its what we have to do.
Those banned will stay banned, but like most other internet services, its not
that hard to create a new fake e-mail account. However, its a lot harder to get
a new serial key =)
Avatars should be back within 2 weeks of the launch.
