  • Another Dragon Age 2 gamer got banned from EA

    Another day another gamer banned by Electronic Arts from playing Dragon Age 2 and its DLC. A user name tez20 has been banned by EA today, here is what tez20 said ater he received the ban.Dragon Age 2

    Hey guys, funny story here which mirrors another story that was present on these boards a few weeks ag but this one is actualy worse.
    My EA account has been permanently banned (tez19) and therefore like the other guy cannot access my DA2 game or DLC.
    Just would like to throw this out there for people to talk about.
    Unlike the poster before me i did not call EA the devil or insult EA or Bioware in any way. In fact I did insult other people who were insulting members of Bioware (The guy [Towering Fury] for wishing death on David Gaider and another poster who was typing racial remarks towards Stanley Woo).
    I am very disappointed as anybody would be that My games and DLC have been disabled and my EA account has been permanently banned. I guess people who said you shouldn’t register your games to your account were correct.
    Unfortunately it seems EA has lost another customer.

    Check out the screenshot of the email tez20 received from EA:
