-GUIDE TO FORUM USE-
The Battlefield forums are designed to build a strong community. Make new friends, discover new strategies, discuss improvements to the games, and get answers to your questions.
These guidelines explain what behavior is expected of you when posting anything on the forums.
The purpose of these forums is to create a productive and inviting space in which players can discuss, seek help, and give feedback on Battlefield. Posts that do not contribute to this end are subject to removal per the judgment of forum staff. Users that regularly violate rules or who are disruptive are subject to disciplinary action (bans) per the judgment of forum staff.
Use the search feature
Duplicate content will be removed to promote the usefulness of this forum. Repeat reposting will result in a temporary ban.
Other users may have similar but different ideas or problems. The more information that is provided the more productive your post will be.
Posting with “DICE” or “EA” in the title of a thread is discouraged
It is redundant and causes clutter. We take your feedback seriously and to heart. By posting in these forums we understand that you are addressing us.
Calling out Moderators and Officials
Avoid creating threads with the names of the Admins, Mods or other employees in the title. Threads posted in this manner will be locked.
Do not post in all caps
If you do, your content will be removed and you will receive a temporary ban.
Swearing and profanity are not allowed in any post or comment made to any Battlefield.com site. While there is a profanity filter that will catch most profanity, attempting to bypass this by using altered versions may result in a strike that can lead to a temporary suspension.
No petition threads
The nature of a forum is that discussion and interest will naturally bring important and relevant topics to light. Petitions do not contribute to a useful and productive forum.
Posts and threads containing the following elements, per the judgment of forum staff, are not permitted:
• Personal defamation
• Harassment, including, but not limited to personal attacks, racism, hate speech, stat-bashing, etc.
• Encouragement of illegal activity
• "Necroing" threads
• Repeat posting
• All-caps posts and thread titles
• “Bumps” - including 'necroing' threads
• Political and religious discussions
• "Official" threads
• "Master Race" comments - enjoy your platform but do not harass others for their choice.
• Discussion of moderation.
While we do encourage honest, open discussion, please note: Violation of the forum rules will be handled with a "zero tolerance" policy.
Users that promote illegal activity will be banned indefinitely.
Users that post real-life threats will be banned indefinitely.
Users that promote hacking, torrenting, or exploits will be banned indefinitely.
Users posting pornographic material will be banned indefinitely.
Users posting the personal details of other users will be banned indefinitely.
Users that impersonate forum staff or EA/DICE employees will be banned indefinitely.
Forums staff will enforce these rules with the editing or removal of content and banning of offending posters. Repeat offenders will be me met with prolonged or indefinite bans.
Naming and Shaming
Naming and shaming those who you believe to be cheating is not permitted on the forum. It is not productive and does not expedite action taken against these players. Any references of this type will be removed. Instead, Report players directly for investigation. This rule also applies to the naming of servers and the admins of servers you feel are in breach of the RoC.
Reporting potential cheaters
If you want to report a potential cheater, visit the user’s Battlelog profile, click the report "exclamation mark” symbol at the top-right of their page, and fill in the reason for reporting them. You can submit links to videos or Battle Reports with evidence supporting your suspicions of cheating. We investigate all reports and will take action if a player is found to be cheating.

I’ve been banned from posting on the forums– What do I do?
Take a break, go for a walk, play some Battlefield – it’s not a big deal. We’re not mad at you, you’re not in trouble – you just need a break. Do not post or complain about your ban. This will result in an extension of your ban. Temporary bans are not subject to appeal. If you feel that you have been long-termed banned incorrectly please our Terms of Service team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Being temporarily banned from posting on the forums means that you have broken the rules or have not been participating in a constructive fashion. Please review the rules and guidelines as posted above. A short-term ban is our way of preventing further disruptive behavior and asking you to reexamine your behavior.
Being temporarily banned from posting on forums will not prevent you from accessing your game. In extreme cases of misconduct, you may additionally be banned from playing the game.
Please review our Terms of Service
