Daish was banned again............. this time for quoted text

i was replying to somebody who used a offensive word. i said nothing offensive nothing vulgar myself and i was banned for 72 hours.

you can even see the quote tag in the email i censored out the offensive language with ****

i was banned for something i never said................ the text AFTER the |quote| box is mine ( i had to edit the quote box it messed the post up )

this is banned by EA support not a game server admin btw i lost all access to Battlefield 3.

I've had 1 warning for something i did not do. the warning was for quoted text. i censored the quote/email from EA Support with ******** so that there is nothing in this topic that breaks the TOS. im sure you can work it out.

so yeah anybody can make a mistake so i contacted EA Support to get it fixed. but they acted like no mistake was made.
Created 2 EA.support ticket's
Emailed customerservice@ea.com
Contacted EAsupport on twitter
Contacted EA support on live chat twice

every time i contacted them they said i was in the wrong........ they dont even check into reports. they just pretend to........... what kind of support is that. here is the screenshot of the post for proof

Hello,

Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.

I am sorry for the delay in responding to you.

I'm sorry to hear you are still experiencing difficulties, and apologize for any inconvenience.I checked your account again and found that you were given warning not to use Inappropriate Language regarding game or players on 2011-11-14. But you wrote "s***" for maps and EA don't encourage this kind things.Due to this your account has been banned for 72 hours on 16th Nov.No one can un-ban this. I would request you to wait for 48 hours more.Then you will be able to play the game.If you think the map is not good or you want to change map you can write it on Forums so that our developers can see it and work on it.

If you have any other questions, then by all means feel free to let us know.

Kinda weird, you can't say "shit" on the forums, in Battlelog, something that is directly linked to an adults only game that uses the phrase "I'm getting my shit pushed in". i think Hitler survived WWII and is moderating EA forums.

you cant access Battlelog unless you have the game..
the Game is full of offensive language and murder...

i asked the Support staff this before and they did not answer. my language was not directed at another player.

he also said that it was a SENIOR STAFF MEMBER............................ so its not just a lower level staff member who do actions like this by mistake. why do Senior staff members do stuff like this.

i would not be frustrated if i knew they did stuff like this. but i was never even given a real warning. banned for something so minor without a real warning how would you guys feel.


saying something so minor that was not directed at any other players in a game full of language like that. hell that word is on TV all the time its hardly that offensive. im talking about the 4 leter S word. something you do when you go to the toilet.

What a god damn joke... Even more reason to never give these stupid fucks money ever again. Look at how awful the grammar is too, the pieces of shit can't even hire someone who speaks English after we've collectively given them hundreds of millions of dollars... Activision may have taken the Hitler title from EA, but they're still at least Himmler.

I was banned, without warning for 72 hours for having the word d**k in my profile. MY PROFILE, NOT THE FORUMS. I hadn't even posted on the forums when I had it there. Then they tell me to pretty much screw off on the phone.

Sent e-mail after e-mail, talk to tier 2 customer support, and got nothing. No e-mails back, nothing. It's pathetic how they treat the customers who keep there company alive.
If you're upset or mad, we can probably get you a lollipop to make you feel better.

Ya I'm inclined to think they invoked the "3rd person clause" on you. But you may wanna edit out those emails, pretty sure I just saw a post get censored because posting EA support chats is against forum TOS.

dont use the online support. they are completely useless. i've tried contacting them before only to get the same response over and over "we can't do anything to help you", eventually i figured out how to resolve the issue myself

i'd suggest calling even though i have not tried this yet, i think you're better of speaking to a representative on the phone

As much as Danish's posts can annoy me at times (that talking third person does my head in), being banned like that for something so petty is a joke. Need to get their priorities in order, theirs hackers and whatnot roaming around (I've seen a fair few, not alot, but they are there), various other things that are in dire need of being fixed, and they go after someone for foul language. Its an 18+ game! I see much worse language in almost every thread

So utterly petty on the part of EA, and not justified at all. It seems that when Danish wants to complain about it, he just gets a flow chart-esqu response with a passing reference to his query. Totally useless
