Hopefully, if the standard for creditability for bioware is a forum post we will all be credited with a free month of gameplay.
I mean otherwise, there is no realy stadard for banning him. Or do you want it both ways. I mean they have his account and billion info, but forum post supersede these i guess.

 

How many people bought this game again? If some dumbass wants to play at some "ZOMG IM 12 herp derp" meme when a game company's first instinct in that case is to ban first and ask questions later, they deserve the ban. Bioware doesn't have any guarantee that any verification or ID would be legit, so in order to comply with the law, they're not going to go through a lengthy appeals process.  If you give any indication that you're underage, bye bye. 

It's why companies like KingsIsle (the makers of Wizard 101) are draconian on their TOS and in their parental controls. The law is the law and they try to keep a safe environment for their customers. 

In this case, there are far more SWTOR customers than there are Bioware CSR people. And they've got enough to handle now with billing and other bigger issues. Some loser joking that he's 12 and being surprised that he earned a perma-ban for it is no big loss in comparison. CSR should be focused on handling billing and legitimate customer service problems, not some dumbass following a ridiculous meme.

The real crime here is that 12 year olds were their target audience :/

exactly the whole reason older gamers are bashing this game so hard is because it was designed for chidren, then they say hey your a child BAN??? 

Anywayz it is in the terms of service that this game is for 13+ even if the graphics are for players aged 8-14, but hey there is no problem here is there i mean its not like they made flavored cigerettes and was like ohh well there not for children.

You guys are bashing him for using a youtube joke and getting banned for it when he had to enter his real birthday and credit card to even play the game. They knew he wasn't 12 or they are retarded. 

btw Retarded is a mech term it means that one of the rods is not pushing the valves in correct timing so no im not being discriminatory to dumb people just dumb mods.

Fixed that for you.

CSR has bigger things to deal with than chasing down some ridiculous YouTube meme or go through a process to maybe possibly verify if some moron is over 13 or not when he says he's 12. In this case, the ban is well deserved, just for being an idiot. Federal law is federal law and a game company isn't going to risk ANYTHING that might put their compliance in jeopardy.

With the permission of parents, a child of 12 can play. Your logic is flawed.

Meme or not they have to take things at face value.

 Ok I'll take this through the woodshed. First, Bioware has his stated age on file from when he registered his account, so it's like telling the police one day, "Oh yeah I was out in Botswana on the 24th of May 2011." and then later when you're walking into the police station with your friend you crack a joke saying, "I killed Mr. Sandoval last May with a rusty shovel." Now the police are forced to believe one of two contradicting statements.

In the case of Bioware they have to believe that either he was lying when he registered or if he's lying on the forum, both of which are equally possible which makes the ban stupid because they clearly never attempted to judge which was true and which was false.

Tallyho!

Federal law also gives you right to due process, which means innocent until proven guilty. If they took the time to ban him they could have took the 2 sec to check his age. Hiding behind the law for bad customer service and pretending they can do no wrong isn't going to help the issue.

 Oh man it's another gem. I bet that guy wearing the other team's gear paid the owner money before he showed up, and  the owner presented him with a legally binding ToS contract. I bet that's just what happened. It's not like a person goes to restaurant and pays after they've already eaten, heavens no. They pay before they even enter the restaurant.

Private groups have to be fair to their customers. He most certainly should have been questioned, but I believe having his billing information match up with his account registration would be enough proof. Or do 12 year-olds have credit cards these days?

He violated TOS end of story and this  really don't see how federal government would be any use. It is just like ay other business banning you for violating the private establishments rules.

Sure. But that permission doesn't give the child the right to violate the TOS. In fact, just like any other private business, EA and Bioware are will within their rights to ban over this:

"Innocent until proven guilty" only applies in criminal cases. The guy violated the TOS of a video game when the company outright tells you they can ban you at their discretion.

I still don't get it. Wouldn't he literally have to become a 12 year-old to violate the ToS? I mean he wasn't violating when he gave them his age on his account the first time, but now he is?

It's the standard TOS that every single person agrees to in every single MMO on this site. You agree to play by a developer's rules. If you break the rules, you're gone.

Most people are smart enough to know that, so they don't act like idiots and break the TOS.

Just curious...if the guy is older than 13, then how did he violate the TOS? If he genuinely is older than the required age, then technically he isn't in violation of the TOS, and a statement that he is 12 still doesn't change that fact. Surely a joke isn't a TOS violation, so what TOS rule did he break?

Your tears sustain me.

1/22/12 2:25:18 AM#117

AS has been stated, he didn't violate the TOS.  Is there a clause that says you can not say you are under 13 on the forums?  As a major company you think they would check their facts before they ban people.  If someone says they are a wookie would they get banned because wookies have no rights on earth?  Use your brains people.

If people can get banned for making a joke, even if you think it is a stupid one, then the customer service at bioware is retarded.

How does Bioware have any guarantee that they are legitimately older? Also, why should they go through a lengthy verification process when they've likely got billing issues and other CSR problems that would require more immediate attention?

Imagine the outcry on these boards if EA took time away from handling credit cards being improperly charged or some other major billing or account issues to verify if some guy is 13 or not because he decided to be a moron and follow some YouTube meme instead of acting like an adult. The shit storm around here would be worse than usual.

Just like any other business, EA says outright that they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. They can terminate your account at their discretion if they think you broke the rules. Simple as that.

They should ban you for using the term meme, because Dawkins is a retard for college freashmen who are afraid of developing individual thought and hasn't written anything new or relevant since 1976.

What a pathetic company. 

The chances of me buying a BW game in the future continue to sink faster than a rock.

 

I must say, this is perversely amusing to watch from the sidelines. And the Biodrones always provide comedic gold when it comes to making the most asinine excuses for SWTOR, BW and EA. Hah. 

"Never argue with a fool; onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."

I need to take this advice more.
