the famous DontBl1nk from Pixelenemy did this, I hope he doesn't get banned. He even tells others how to get into the VPN.

Yeah and he learned from Battlefieldo. They won't do it... At least I hope not.

Nope, im just going on vacation to korea.

They won't ban you because they don't know if youre using it or not.

If your account is in the USA along with your CC address then it is pretty easy to tell if you are playing the game when you shouldn't be.

Might just be a matter of them deciding whether or not they want to pursue it. Being so close to release, most likely not.

I use VPN all the time on Steam and they don't seem to have any problem with this.

That is because Steam doesn't try to screw you over at every single turn.

Steam is consumer friendly, while Origin is NOT!

They'll most likely get banned at the very least for a week. The whole reason for Origin/Battlelog is so that EA/Dice can make sure people don't hack/use loopholes in their system.
