Why is it that my team mates are so toxic in playing, they troll me, they are greedy, they don't help me when im down or dead, but when I say words to them because i'm angry, I'm the one being banned, and they get to still play. I get it that its bad for hateful speech but i'm playing my best and APEX is partnering me with [CM - removed] GUYS that are so toxic!!!! I suggest taht please be fair, don't ban immediately if they report hateful speech, REVIEW THE MATCH FIRST!!!!! THANK YOU.

Hey @Mr_Kaplan013

 

I get that it's definitely frustrating when someone is being toxic, but the same rules apply to everyone. If you fire back at them with bad language or toxicity it can get your account banned as well. 

 

The best thing to do in situations like this is to just report the person and move on. I know it's not always easy to hold your tongue, but that's the best way to avoid any actions on your own account. 

 

That said, I'm afraid that account bans aren't something we would be able to help with here on Answers HQ. If you haven't already I'd recommend getting in touch with the Terms of Service team so they can take a look at your account. They'll determine if the ban can be lifted. 

 

You can find more info on how to set up a case with them at the EA Help website. The TOS team will review your case and get back to you via email as soon as they can.

Yeah, don't rise to the bait.  It's probably all part of how those trolls have fun by baiting people and then reporting them. The fact that you got reported despite being the victim suggests that this is their plan don't you think?

 

I doubt very much that action is actually ever taken when players are reported for "Sabotage" or whatever they call it though. Naughty words = instant ban, cheating = maybe deal with them at some point, possibly . . and just general poor behaviour, I doubt they even bother. Quite hard to define unacceptable behaviour really, I am sure some people out there report their team mates just because they cant keep up with their suicidal Octane rushing.  Can't really see how a moderator could deal with that.

 

Can anyone provide an instance of someone actually having action taken against them for just being "toxic" and not using certain key words in chat?

@Piabetic I think it's hard to define "toxic" in this instance. I would hope that they would take action against people that spam rez, dive their team to their deaths, punch you off cliffs, etc. But as for simply not rezzing or "being greedy," that's not necessarily toxic. As you know of course, not sure why I'm telling you this, lol.

@LaughingSharkoYeah, it's just the nature of these type of games. OP doesn't give details of what he did to get banned of course. I doubt very much he called them "meanies" or suggested they catch a serious disease or fall foul of some fire or something!

I think people just need to calm down. You arent seeing the game from your teammates perspective. The other day I was with two randoms. We get into our first fight. I fried two people and hurt the 3rd but went to heal. My teammates went after the 3rd and died. While I was healing one guy puts on his mic and starts f bombing me to do something instead of being useless. I dropped all my stuff and let the other guy kill me. End game screen I have 600 damage. The guy that was yelling......56. I laughed and left.

@Mr_Kaplan013 I know it's frustrating that there are people who are awful not just in this game but also in real life. Always auto mute randoms and if they're still trolling then just quit that game. It's not worth your time.

@Mr_Kaplan013 

 

Sometimes people are just unreasonable, or as others have pointed out, they could be trying to upset you on purpose. If you blow up on them it could lead to your account being suspended or banned. The rules still apply. 

 

It's best to just not even engage with someone like this at all.
