EA has been known for being a little bit ban happy on Origin, banning players from accessing all content as a result of forum infringements and such like. But now there is some good news for all you naughty children — banned players can now access singleplayer content.
A statement on the ‘Help’ section on EA’s website stated the following…
With every game and service EA offers, we take the satisfaction of our customers very seriously. We discourage cheating and strive to maintain a high level of integrity in both our games and our forums. To this end, we will hide inappropriate content, and we will take action on EA/Origin accounts that violate the Terms of Service (TOS) based on the severity of the offense.
If you find yourself with a disabled account, please note that you can still play EA games in single-player mode. For PC games you will need to enable Origin’s offline mode to play games with a disabled account. Go to the settings tab in Origin (the gear icon) and select Go Offline.
This hardly negates some of Origin’s other strange policies, but it is a forward step at least.
