EA Threatens Game Bans for Forum Activity

Posted by ballightning on October 31, 2008

Owners of Electronic Arts published titles such as Spore and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 may end up banned from playing their games if they get banned from any EA-moderated forum, according to this post from moderator eaapoc:

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 recommend people play nice and act mature.

Similar threats emerged earlier this year, when Spore forumites were threatened with bans for discussing the title’s controversial DRM, though EA later stepped in to clarify that the threat stemmed from an “over-zealous community volunteer” and were “absolutely not true or in-line with EA’s moderation policy.”

“What if some moderator goes off on a power trip?” asked Shacker Pugnate, who tipped Shacknews off to the news. “Does he seriously have the right to block access to software you legally purchased?”
