EA's ban hammer reaches new levels of stupidity when someone gets banned after someone else swears.
This is the most logical thing EA has ever done. I'm being 100 percent serious here. Also, I'm lying. EA is stupid for doing this.
....and this is why I play on servers that DO NOT require Origin. EA can suck a bag of "Richards"*!! I'll be dammed if i pay $60 for a game and get banned from playing it although i'm sure these Gamers can easily find the alternative servers......Heck they most likely will have a better time on the alternative servers cause i know i do. *Richard: common English name. Customary to go by the nickname Dick!
I think it's logical too. Especially banning swearing while playing an M-rated game and swearing in any forum about the mature rated game. The best part is that it's only rated M for the single-player and it's actually unrated for multiplayer.
"Fix yourself up with that Shite" from BC2 and BF3! along with B$tch F&6K and a host of other curse words. So does BF3 and BC2 get banned too? EA is just stupid...too bad they got a shite load of good games coming out. I'm just glad i can avoid Origin for BF3 and will have to see about other titles. your right we bought a M rated game so I'm sure the cursing doesn't bother us but if it does then turn on your filters or go play Super Mario kart.
I cant understand how they can ban a user for swearing and yet the Singleplayer game has a swear word in nearly every sentence.
The singleplayer? Have you listened to the narration in multiplayer?? When playing as russia and loosing he drops F bombs left and right! EA a hypocrits. He can argue the narrator swore over his mic, lol.
Once again, EA should be focusing on hackers/exploiters, but go the easy route instead.
hahaha i feel sorry for this guy, this makes no sense.
To sides to every story man. This was on reddit a few days ago. Just cause he going around saying this doesn't mean it's true. He could just be trying to paint himself in a better light...We have yet to hear what EA has to say on the matter. Not sure if anyone remembers the kid on Xbox live that was a cheater, and everyone was ready to pounce on Microsoft. Look how that turned out. Just saying this could be a similar situation.
@CandyCaptain Heh you typed all that out before I was. I was thinking of the same scenario. Edit: Take this also with a grain of salt like the original incident, but someone posted this on the forums that it was on: "I called EA Support this morning. Aaron was suspended for using vulgar language on multiple occasions, and was warned repeatedly to cease such behavior. EA warned him twice on November 17, and then again on December 2 before finally issuing a 72 hour suspension. He wasn't suspended by some filter malfunction or for comments made by others, he was suspended for stuff he did over the past few weeks."
I've always been told that EA's customer support/moderation team is s**t.
EA = Ethical Attitude
I was not directly affected, yet I cannot help the feeling as if EA is going to rape me in the future. Of course, I need some evidence of this story, but the feeling will remain even if the story is false. Other instances of EA banning people for using profanity is ridiculous. EA wants the forum to be either kindergarten or a convention for people with top-hats and "high sophistication." Either way, I try not to even go on the BF3 forum anymore. Too much of a risk.
Serriously, if you can't handle reading a "swear word" on the internet; then you shouldn't be on the internet. People ( Govoments, politicians and people with so called power ) try to restrict people too much with crappy rules and regulations. And it's getting out of hand. People need to 'let their hair down' so to speak, and just get over their rubbish fears over 'scary' words. EA is a joke, and this doesn't do them any favours, if they continue their client base will drop.
Another reason why i dont trust EA and Origin. I will never buy anything off of it. Ever.
We can see that, literally.
EA is genius. Now I finally have a safe militairy shooter for my 7 yr old to play because its censored! Also I was lying, no one let's their 7 yr old play an online shooter with mic support and expects that community to be nice and cuss free. I don't know who EA is trying to protect but it sure isn't their own reputation.
Well hell...I better watch my mouth on NHL 12 (I've been hearing about banning people for cursing on the forums and in game). I drop F Bombs like I'm Rex Ryan. I play like I'm a coach on the bench yelling at the rest of my team. People who don't have mics always get to hear me through their television and get pissed off at me and message me. Then I tell them to quit being cheap bastards and go out and buy a mic if they want to tell me to shut up.
and the moral of the story is, never buy from ea
Oh noes we better be careful of all the annoying kids who swear in multiplayer games. Because if they swear at us we will get banned for complaining. Lol XperiaRay
Pay to be a stupid for them mwuahahahahhh i can't believe how stupid people are these days.ahahahhh
Don't talk on the forums. Simple solution. If I ever have issues with Battlefield games I just look on the BF Face Book Page.
