Account Falsely Banned

★★★ Newbie

Hello! I think I was accidentally banned and I don't know why.
Maybe this is an error?

I'm also getting this issue. I log into the game for the first time today, try to get into a Team Deathmatch game, get kicked out saying "The client's game account has been banned." Log back in, try to get into a match, and says I'm in penalty for leaving a match early. Even counted my daily challenges as that I had played a match. Wait for ht timer to run out, try again, same error, same match leaving penalty. Seems like something weird is going on at EA's end of things. BUT the penalty timer got longer so I guess I'm not going to play today until the issue gets resolved.

Client's game account as been banned?

★★★★★ Newbie

This is the third time I got this error. Was trying to play Mixtape, at first it was TDM. Logged back in, but was under an abandon penalty. Waited till the timer ran out, tried to play again but this time it was Gun Run. Same error, and abandon penalty again but longer timer. Wait till the timer ran out, then turned off the game and checked the integrity of my game files. Everything came back fine. Try again for the third time and same issue, even longer penalty timer. Not sure what to do at this point. I did notice that all my displays went black when I load up the game, am I tripping anti-cheat by accident somehow?

Banned without an email or ban history

Banned for no reason?

Logged in today to play with friends, got kicked from a game with the message "The client's game account has been banned", been playing since 2019 never got banned, and the ban is not showing in ban history nor have I received any email?

Same, I haven't even played yet today, just tried joining the firing range to try out my new Wooting keyboard and it kicked me and said my account was banned even though I didn't do anything. No email or ban history either. The official help pages say that they send out an email when you get banned/suspended, but some bans do not show up in the ban history (idk why not they should change that). Hopefully it's just a bug with the anti-cheat and they can fix this quickly, I want to try out my new keyboard haha
