Not really sure what good it would do, but I was asked to post here by EA support after a live chat I just had with regards to my BF3 account.
I recently reinstalled BF3 after a long hiatus and a few weird things happened.
- Getting permabanned via servers' autoadmin because of an above average stat on Fair Play for the type88 LMG. There are a bunch of flagged stats on my Fair Play stats.
- After loading BF3 for the 1st time in ages, I received 3 emails from answersHQ all at exactly the same time (noob badge, 1st anniversary badge and 4th anniversary badge), though I'm sure I've never signed into answersHQ before. Also, the avatar used on answersHQ is not one I recognise.
- On Battlelog, my rank is 54, colonel service star 9, but in-game my rank is 9 (I have never requested a stat reset)
- There are 3 previous tickets to EA support for BF3, but I'm pretty certain I've never created one before.
So I contacted support because it looks as though my account has been hacked at some point. Turns out, even though they can't see the previous tickets because they have been archived, that they can't find any evidence of my account being compromised. Nothing they can do to explain the Fair Play stat anomolies. They think the rank is just an image bug and will resync eventually.
So there's nothing I can do to stop getting permabanned by autoadmins based on Fair Play stat anomolies that can't be explained. (Before the trolls start accusing me, I am probably one of the most anti-cheat people alive)
