He made a joke, it wasn't even something i would count as a real insult. At least over here EULAs don't have any binding power since you can't read them before purchasing a game, at least if you purchase it in retail.NotSoNimble said:They have a right to suspend the service of their servers. This is, at best, a valid legal reason to get a refund for buying his game(s). If you want to tempt the law, beware of consequences. I for one think you should read the rules carefully if your going to engage in behavior you know isn't proper or decent.danpascooch said:In a movie theater you get kicked out for hindering others ability to use what they paid for (IE, watch the movie) I don't care if he called everyone at Bioware a Nazi, he paid for the game, and he isn't stopping others from playing it, do you read every EULA before you click agree? Because if you don't (and I'm sure you don't) you can't expect him to, there are limits on what EULA's allow you to do, for example, if EA put a clause in the EULA that said they reserve the right to rape you they still wouldn't be allowed to do it.NotSoNimble said:I shit without signing an EULA. I don't troll EA either.danpascooch said:You can't even take a shit nowadays without signing an EULA, is it his fault for not expecting them to do something so ridiculous?NotSoNimble said:One thing I've learned in life is that people being punished are almost never honest when talking about it during or after they 'pay the piper'.
It's what you get for not reading the rules you agree to.
It is his fault for breaking his contract with them.
I bet a dollar he did more than just post the one little sentence he claims at the beginning of that thread too. If you act like an ass, you can lose money. It's like buying a ticket to a movie then screaming your lungs out when you sit down. They can, and will, throw your ass out, and you won't get a refund. This guy is only getting a slap on the wrist by not being able to play for a few days.
EDIT: Was he bitching about DA2? If that was what his complaining about EA was for, I find this rather funny.
I wouldn't be surprised if what they did is illegal.
Who am I to say what is proper or decent you ask? Just some guy.
At the very least you have the right to get a full refund.
Since in his case it was only 3 days i wouldn't take any steps like that, however this was a clear overreaction on EAs part.
