Yeah, I wasn’t saying they’ve stated people could get banned but this wouldn’t be the first time they banned accounts for exploiting something in the game they couldn’t fix.
Ah yes. I was just wondering because I keep seeing multiple people mention possible banning but haven't seen any sign of it personally but thought maybe I missed it. I want to say it wouldn't surprise me if they "pulled a Harvest" and just had stamina events 3 times a day if they conclude they are unable to control the # of ads watched. Doing that at this point after the firework nerf, and recent ad changes might be game PR suicide....but...and i hate to be cynical...when has it ever seemed like they cared about "bad PR" from their decisions lol
Guess u missed the season 2 mass banning.. Where they didn't give any reasons for banning. Then said we have found suspicious activity.. And then suddenly unbanned the accounts.. No rhyme or reason for EA doing anything..
Let's give people unlimited ads.. Oh no they are getting masters too easily (what did they think would happen)..
Oh, I was present for "The Banning" lol. I understand your concern with something like that in mind (I feel like it's been about a year or so since those bans happened but i don't remember the dates, maybe someone knows lol). Thing is, those bans, however wreckless/idiotic it was, was in response to a true problem (coin selling) worth banning lol. They had to scare folks somehow, so they did the idiotic bans, lol. If this ad thing becomes an issue they probably just shut the ads off again lol.
Edit: Well, that's the LOGICAL course of action to expect if it becomes a problem, but, and with all due respect to anyone from EA that's reading this possibly, we can agree that logical decision and EA aren't always one and the same, but I'm just a consumer, not the businessman, so what do i know?
