EA and the team behind Battlefield have hit boiling point this week. First of all it was a lot of user moaning they didn’t want Operation Metro as the free beta map, and an understandably frustrated rep from BF3 unloaded on the forum telling users to grow up and the beta is a privilege, not a right.
Now they have found that some users are now hosting hacked servers to play BF3 beta, so they have jumped back on the forums to ask user to remain on the official server but also said if you do go on an unofficial server your account may be banned by EA. Then to really drive it home they added another comment saying “If your account gets banned it does mean any EA game you have on your account would also be unavailable”
Now I can understand them being upset about this but the problem is the unofficial servers are showing up on the PC’s battle logs, so users are jumping in and out of them unknowing they could be putting their account in danger of a ban. Fingers crossed this is just another upset EA staff member with a lot of bark but no bite.
