Earlier this week a user on the EA forums known as Semtex Jack had put up a notification that his account had been banned from the Mass Effect 3 multiplayer mode for "suspected credit hacking." Apparently during the game Jack had acquired millions of credits after playing in a multiplayer match but didn't know how or why he got them. He then bought heaps of in-game items including spectre boxes with magical cash. Jack logged in the next day only to receive a note from EA saying " This account is invalid."
Help was on it's way in the form of Senior Marketing Manager Jarrett Lee who was responded to Jack's problem with a live team to help him get back to shooting dudes in multiplayer quicksmart. However, after some data checking, Lee came back with, ďJack Ė unfortunately the data analysis on your account does not entirely support your story. Iíll leave it at that and not make this awkward. I've got your case being looked at and itís being escalated, but Iíll step out of this situation now because itís not really my territory."
You can actually see the whole conversation between Bioware and Jack here.
But who do you think was in the wrong? What happened with Jack's account? For all you ME3 players out there, have you heard of similar stories?
