Fucking EA / Origin / Bioware.
« on: March 12, 2012, 02:13:37 AM »
Ok ill start at the begining, My better half doesn't have access too a decent PC or anything except a wii, So I figured sure what the fuck Ill get her Mass Effect 3 because she liked the first 2.

Heres the fun part, She doesn't have an origin account so I put ME3 on mine and let her play.
I went to work today, Came home to find out she hit up multiplayer as any normal person would, She joined a random server and played 1 round, Sreriously 1 round. She then realized that she got roughly 20 million credits, Thinking that this was a good thing she then went back to single player to spend said credits.

About 20 seconds after she had done this, Origin logged her out, Closed the game and Perm banned the account.

Now, I can understand had she been doing anything wrong it would be ok.

But she wasnt. We found out later that there is a glitch with some multiplayer servers giving out huge rewards at the end of rounds. This is what happened.

Because of this, I've lost my ToR account, My BF3 account and have been IP banned for "Exploiting".

So what does this mean?

Well im up shit creek without a paddle, I can't play single player, Multiplayer, or any games I linked to that account.

Seriously I've fucking had it with EA and Bioware.
My ToR account was banned because I was making "too many credits".

These two companies are the reason gaming will never EVER be a good thing. They fuck consumers and there's nothing that can be done about this.


Holy fuck.

This is just fucked, I'm not even sure who I should get in contact with to get at least some part of my account wether it be money back or what ever.

The best bit is EA knows about this and wont fix it because people are too fucking pathetic to question the almighty EA.

And people ask why I prefer Valve over EA.

Canas there is a EA store here on the GC.. It could pay to go there & plead your case. Its in Southport somewhere.. Ill see if I can find it.

Maybe you could apply for a job there & change them from within..

So heres the story now,

EA claims that because she joined a "hacked" game we can be banned for it, Even though we were not in the wrong.
I went into the office, 2nd Floor Corperate building Aus fair (They moved Scorp).
Basically they said that all we could do is lodge a written application for an audit of the account. Even then its still unlikely I will get either access to my games or the money back for them.

Honestly this is a load of crap, This is DRM gone insane.

So yeah stay the fuck away from EA.

They wont release mod tools for PR and nothing will be done about this.

That's fucked mate... How are you meant to know what server is hacked or not. Its their responsibility  to monitor who is running registered & genuine servers of their software. Are they not the distributor of this software. They should have made it more secure before releasing it..

Yep, That's exactly what I said.
I'm not the only one that's had issues like this. Apparently EA is banning people for making credits in ToR also.
I think both companies are just being money hungry.
Makes me sick thinking about it really.

Yeah that's really fucked, have you talked to a real EA support guy directly? the guys in aus represent ea as much as a checkout chick represents Woolies.

canhas is it worth you time/hassle to talk to a solicitor?  Rather dramatic over a game/s, but if it was me and no other avenue left to walk down, than I probably would.  But that's just me.  And the only other problem there is that you'll be a small fry taking on the big cats!  At the end of the day as far as I am concerned, you have been cheated of something, someone has stolen from you and what property that you own and belongs to you should be returned or compensated for.

I'm really tempted too, Just after reading the fine print on origin it looks like im basically fucked, It says that EA can close my account without a reason.

I'm just seriously fucking pissed because of how much I spent on games and shit.
