No1 wants players in their game that behave like this, you are part of those who ruin game communies.

Props to them for banning you and moderating their chat.

Now, if they were simply banning you from the forums, i could see that, still a bit draconian IMO, but still i could see it.  But actually banning your account?  I'm pretty sure you'd be able to bring a lawsuit against them if you had wanted.

Are you serious?

 

You know that box you checked when you agreed to the terms of service and probably did not read?  (few do read it)

It will be in there. Lawsuit? Good grief, I think my IQ dropped  a little just reading that comment.

eheheh

2 things i'd say:

a) What a start you did in GW2. lol

b) Very restrict at arenaN.

I'm not telling you shouldnt say stupid things like that, but thats the way you present your opinion. Rugh but it's way. The ban, it's a bit more ridiculous than the phrase. Turning a MMO into a perfect world (im not pub) it will never turn into a nice end. I guess my decision of waiting a litle more it's not so wrong. Has i see GW2 is getting too much perfect. As my friend Jab says, if there's no Drama, definitely something is wrong.

Not that I find what you said offensive, but it is good to know they are taking a firm hand in enforcing their policies instead of being wishy washy like some other games where just about anything goes.

The community on my server is freaking amazing.  Everyone, and I mean literally everyone, is friendly and courteous.  It is nice to know that a few bad apples won't spoil it because they won't get away with it.

Im kind of glad as well, we need more of this to stop games from becoming WoW chat.  Letting people do and say what ever they want is what ruins a community.  I do hope you get your account back, at least you will (hopefully) think twice before saying something innapropriate.  M rated/ Adult talk should be left to private chat, party or guild...even then, you should know if your in front of a mature, understanding group of people.  Not everyone wants to hear people and their foul mouths....even though its a game, show some respect...not just to others, but for yourself!

Probably the only reason they would be able to get away with it is because it is not a sub based game.  If it were a sub based game then the us govt would define that as you paying for a service.  Now, a company has the right to deny service based on basically any reason they want, but they have to refund your money unless they provide that service.  So, facepalm all you want, but there was *some* validity to my statement.

now, would anyone actually try to bring a lawsuit over a $60 game? no, if they did they'd be an idiot, or just someone with too much money and too much time on their hands.  But the legal precedent would exist.

Pretty sure the ToS says that they reserve the right to ban you for whatever reason they feel like. Id wager 99% of MMO's include that in their ToS.

I was discussing a hypothetical.  I don't own GW2, nor do i have any intention of buying it.  Anyways, don't take my post as condoning his actions, i still disagree with them.  My point is that generally companies can't get away with shit like that, regardless of terms of service.

I for example work in the auto insurance industry, and you'd be amazed at the shit that gets thrown out of a signed written contract because a judge or a jury decides that it wasn't valid or fair, etc.

For example, you can put into your terms of service that if you are ever to wear a red shirt while playing our game, your account can be banned.  Now, most people on this forum would go "well idiot its in the TOS and you agreed to it, so blah blah blah".   When if someone actually did get their service termed for wearing a red shirt and playing the game they could EASILY bring a suit against that company, assuming said company did not refund their money.

Basically once they define it as a service, they have to provide that service, or they have to refund your money, they can't can you for no valid reason and keep your money.

 If a company operates within the borders of the United States it's subject to our laws.

Op it's not very clear what actually happened from your post. You said it where and were banned from exactly what? Anyway I can't imagine what would cause you to say something so inane.

Um...all the courts agree that video games are a service. When you purchase a game, ANY GAME, you do not own the rights to that game. You purchase the ability to play said game. If said person breaches a companies terms of service, they have the right to terminate your access to the service. Depending on the laws, some services may be required to provide a refund for the remaining time of the subscription. This isn't a subscription based game. Considering he had received the service (with BWE, and headstart) and used it, he is not entitled to a refund for being banned. 

Let me put it this way, he would have no case and the courts would laugh at him as he has to pay the legal fees associated with bringing a ridiculous lawsuit to court. He violated ArenaNet's terms of use, and is therefore able to be removed from said service. 

There is no validity to your statement.

You don't think that overly offensive language in a rated T game would constitute as a valid reason?

It wasn't as offensive as much as it was stupid. Nothing personal against OP, but some general  guidelines should be followed, meaning we should be careful what we say, online or not.
