So today I received an email from EA saying that I didn't play by the rules, so my account is banned permanently. I swear I haven't done anything wrong, they didn't even say what I have done wrong, they just list a few things that you shouldn't do.

Is trading against the rules?

Please help, what should I do?

    No I didn't, I swear. I thought like you when I saw these kind of posts, now it happened to me. I will edit my trading method in the Opening post later today.

    This is an outrage.. EA need to be accountable for these bans and not hide behinde jargan in their T&C.

    Whatever happened to looking after your customers? I love fifa but hate EA, they have become so greedy and egotistical

    Nope, the last couple of years I wasn't playing this game seriously anyways. I bought FIFA 17 just a month ago and didn't even had 100K match coins, got my coins through trading. I am now past those years where I got super hyped after a teaser..

    Yeah, I might edit my trading method in the opening post, just want to know what will happen to my account first. If I don't get it back I will leave FIFA permanently, so I may aswell leave something behind for this community.

    Maybe because you sold some players for mad money like silver sbc players for 10k, EA might think you sold those players for real money.

    I used this method since FIFA 14, it doesn't make any sense why they should ban someone. Trading is not against the rules and yet here I am, banned for trading.

    No I didn't bother with SBC trading methods, most of my profits was between 400-1000 coins per player, with a few between 1000-3000k.

    Really depends on the specifics, since there are definitely certain ways to make coins that are sketchier than others.

    This is exactly why you shouldn't buy FIFA points. Stick to playing games and trading, then if you get banned you've not really lost anything.

    I just sniped players for around 1k and sold them for 400-500 coins profit, so your typical poor man's trading method. I never invested in SBC cards to make profits 10x the costs of those cards, because I saw those as a risky method.

    Maybe they are just mad that I haven't spend a single cent since FIFA 13 lol.

    Sniping = time outs = enough tumeouts = ban

    Sniping seems to be a grey area for EA. Not sure if it leads to permanent bans, but it definitely leads to increasingly larger timeouts from the market. Either way, EA definitely frowns on the behavior.

    I'm guessing you did a lot of sniping? I wouldn't really consider it a trading method, still hoping EA takes more measures to remove it from the game.

    Care to elaborate this snipping method? Maybe you just did too many searches on the market in a short time and they believed that you might be up to something bad.
