Something which obviously raises serious questions about consumer rights, which is of course another angle we’re currently investigating.
The first who write invective-speckled fury on the forum, and then to us, and obviously entirely deserve their forum bans.
The second are those who have done absolutely nothing wrong on the forums, but are punished erroneously, either for quoting an insult someone else has called them, or doing nothing offensive whatsoever.
And then came this incredible reply: Aaron chronicles his adventures here.
At this point, with no reply from those within EA who have responded to this matter in the past, we can only suggest that our readers avoid the EA forums.
To keep you up to date with the status of our investigation into EA’s dubious banning players from accessing their Origin account games (mostly multiplayer, although we’re hearing exceptions), we have, well, no news.
Unfortunately, despite repeated attempts to receive a statement on EA’s position on their banning procedure, we have only been met with silence for the last fortnight.After some initial responses, pointing affected customers toward their support lines, we received an ambiguous statement that avoided the current issue and rather said there were plans to “review” whatever the current secret policy might be. All the while, we’re hearing of case after case of customers being affected.I’m building up quite the portfolio of affected gamers, who find after a forum violation they’re unable to access their Origin games.Intel Corporation O23 - Service: @oem6.inf,%WIN32_DPTF_POLICY_LPM_SERVICE_DISPLAY_NAME%; Inte (Dptf Policy Lpm Service) .
