    yeah well done, let's see how many email accounts you're going to make to keep posting these useless topics and getting banned over and over again.

    There is no defense for their actions. Period. Just stop.
    They are also the company requiring Origin, a filthy computer scanning, privacy invading, digital download system that only half works to play Mass Effect 3 on the PC. It might not be Bioware's fault but more of EA's fault, I never really liked EA, only time I ever put up with them is for Bioware games, and Bioware is starting to prove I shouldn't even put up with EA for Bioware games.

    Also banning a game account for forum action is just losing subscribers, cause really they will have 0 players if they ban them all, and for the players not banned, and don't find the game boring after a certian point in the levelling process (varied player to player), they will then leave because why play if they will just get banned permanently for pointless stuff.

    Bioware and EA need to get in their heads fast, Swtor isn't the biggest and greatest mmo ever, it's a new mmo, with a lot of hype, and thus far a successful launch because people want to see what the hype is about. They are to cocky about their game this early in the contest, they earn the right to be cocky and do stuff like this when they are on of the big boys in mmos, and even then the big boys in the mmo industry are smart enough not to do this.

    I'm kinda glad they do that. I'm sick of "Man Children" who are old enough to know better acting like underage kids. The whole are you mad bro stuff has gotten out of hand.

    Their forums are terrible anyway, much better off using mmo-champ.

    They've been fairly receptive to Bug issues so far. Take the outcry about ability delay. They saw the forums and they worked on it. They don't need 50 million posts about one thing or the other, in fact in many cases those posts are just trolling. If they feel the need to consolidate they should. I would expect ANY forum to do so, including MMO champion.

    Right. Read what you agree to in the future. It it doesn't serve as a good lesson for you, then expect to infracted and banned from forums for as long as you frequent them. Unless you enjoy being the human centIPAD.

    Clearly, we need to update this to 'im 13 what is this?" to avoid banhammering. And so on and so forth for M rated, eh?

    I can't even be bothered to visit the main forums because it's one giant trollfest. One guy trolls (who knows could have had a long history of trolling) and Bioware found a clever way to do deal with it. Like I said, he could easily prove age and get everything back. This really is no issue at all and just something to laugh about

    For people saying they don't agree with BW on banning someone for saying something, which as far as they are concerned is telling the truth, what should the cop do when he's on duty and in a store and watched a hooded figure walk up to the counter, stick his hand in the obviously empty pocket and pretend it's a gun in a robbery sort of fashion?

    I don't understand why this is so funny. There's a rule that says you can't be under 13 regardless of anything. It's not the moderators fault, he was just following the rules.

    Not completely right, they haven't banned many people for trolling, just given them the hammer for some hours. But this is a clear sign of trolling, sorry, but that meme is a clear troll. And well, moderators have their choice of ignoring your troll or do something. Blizzard has done it before, and now they've completely stopped. Now I can just laugh on Blizzard's forums when they troll the troll back and then closing the thread before he can reply..
    FOMO: "Fear Of Missing Out", also commonly known as people with a mental issue of managing time and activities, many expecting others to fit into their schedule so they don't miss out on things to come. If FOMO becomes a problem for you, do seek help, it can be a very unhealthy lifestyle..

    I don't think "I'm 12 and what is this" is not trolling in any context, unless the title of the thread is "what is your age?"
    Why am I back here, I don't even play these games anymore

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    Not really but you were most likely one of the kids that i saw ripped apart by everyone who was old enough to play the game, if i had a dollar for the amount of times i herd a child flip out or cry cus everyone ragged on him or talked shit to him cus he sounded like a prepubescent girl i would be a rich man.

    Im glad they ban kids who admit they are kids. Less kids in these games means less child like voices i have to listen to

    Blizzard has that rule, too. You declare your age before creating an account, and so Blizzard doesn't have to act stupidly and ban people for using a common memetic.

    Oh well, all in all, Bioware is made up of a bunch of incompetent doofuses.

    To be honest, I find that more of a stereotype than anything. When I used to play Halo as a child in the late 90s, I didn't talk at all, nor did I curse, or any of that.

    Regardless, BW is going too far with this nonsense.

    Whether it's a meme or not, the CMs were REQUIRED BY LAW to ban him at that point because of this stupid piece of legislation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childre...Protection_Act

    From the reddit r/gaming post about this ban, someone with CM experience:

    Hey I used to be a CM (not of bioware though) and lawyers dictated how we should handle bans. We were told to take any post absolutely seriously if it could constitute a legal threat.
    We would routinely alert local authorities to account holders saying they were going to kill themselves and whatnot, because once someone said they were going to, and then tried to.
    Sadly a stupid law made this stupid ban happen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Childre...Protection_Act

    The moderator is stupid then, because should have known it was a meme, or at least got sarcasm from it. It's funny because Swtor won't going to be successful because Bioware is going to ban all their players :P
