account was banned for a week but not unbanned after a week

★★ Novice

Okay I am really confused because I was banned for a week ( which was totally my fault ) but after this week expired. I am still banned when I log into apex through Steam it says I need an EA account to play and when I click that it says my EA account has been suspended.

 

The email sent to me said I was banned for a week but it has been a week since that email has been sent and I am not unbanned,.

 

Under my ban history it says I am still banned but it has been a week since the time it shows I was banned at. 

 

I just simply want to know when I will be unbanned because I really want to play apex.

Hello, @Kawioo 

 

It looks like the ban started 7 days ago, but you'll most likely need to wait until the 8th day before access is restored. If you don't have it back tomorrow, try submitting another dispute here.

We can't help with this through Answers HQ so your best bet is to submit another dispute if it's not unbanned.

@Kawioo another problem is I don't see a way to request for live support only thing I see is troubleshooting issues and the email which says it will take a month.

Are you talking about a different issue than the ban? Support won't be able to help with that.

Re: account was banned for a week but not unbanned after a week

I also was banned for a week for my first offense on my 9 year old EA account.  Seems a bit harsh you'd think I'd get a warning or something maybe a 5 hr ban maybe a 1-3 day ban but a week for swearing during a match.  I'm guessing a second offense will land me a 2 year sanction on my account, might as well skip a 1 month and 1 year punishment and go straight for the double whammy.  Not only that, when I first tried figuring out what happened I never even had an account ban notice.  All my games were removed when I signed in Origin like I was hacked, I'm sure games decades older have had a ban notice when attempting to log into a sanctioned account.  I wouldn't know because I never get banned from games this was my first, tried figuring it out and made multiple support tickets which I do not recommend because now I am blacklisted from using their EA Help Live Chat support.  Check it out 2012. 9years.png

Here is what my account displayed upon logging in when I was banned. No game library, tells me to sign in when I can sign out.

I'm still banned so I sent a dispute and now I guess I have to wait for an email back.
