    Default EA Could Ban You From Its Games For Not Reporting Bugs



    Always, always, always read the fine print or the EULA. Not paying attention to the rules can get you in trouble, though in this case, the rules are kind of absurd.

    So the point of alphas and betas are, ostensibly, to test games out and report bugs, yes? According to Ars Technica, the EULA on the Sim City beta states the following:

    If you know about a Bug or have heard about a Bug and fail to report the Bug to EA, we reserve the right to treat you no differently from someone who abuses the Bug. You acknowledge that EA reserve the right to lock anyone caught abusing a Bug out of all EA products.
    This is to say, not reporting a bug on Sim City might get you banned from all EA games. Thats a tad extreme. Even if you abuse a bug in one game, does that mean you should be banned in all EA games? Is not reporting a bug really the same as abusing a bug? Hmm.

    As Ars notes, theres no guarantee theyll actually ban players for this, especially given that it would be difficult to even tell if a player never reports it. Still, in spite of the low likelihood of anyone getting banned off all EA games because of Sim City bugs, the wording is alarming. However there are reports that Origin is spyware and can check on that.

    So we get punished for using a glitch or what not because someone who they actually pay to do their job did it incorrectly.

    In my honest opinion, thats fucking stupid. I mean come on. It should be the developers fault for not finding the, hence they created the game there shouldn't be any bugs. Maybe in a beta, but who the fuck looks for BUGS in betas.

    I honestly can see another lawsuit against EA.

    Fine with me, they don't want me to play the game, with a bug I never knew of, I can get my money back.
    Anyways, aren't the company's that make the games supposed to test betas?
