EA SPORTS NHL Fans,
With the NHL season now underway, we’d like to take some time to remind everyone about the rules of the game and introduce you to some actions we’ll be taking to address cheating in NHL 15 and Hockey Ultimate Team.
Although they are a minority amongst our fans, cheaters disrupt the gameplay experience and enjoyment for honest NHL fans in a number of ways. These include things like overloading servers, phishing and compromising other player accounts, and participating in the unauthorized exchange of virtual currency.
It’s time for us to draw a clear and strong line against cheaters who negatively impact the NHL and Hockey Ultimate Team experience for our online players.
Buying and selling coins is not authorized and amounts to cheating in Hockey Ultimate Team. The promotion of coin selling websites is also against our Terms of Service.
Buying coins, selling coins, or promoting Coin Selling violates our Terms of Service and, if caught, will result in an HUT account ban (or even a full EA account ban), either immediately or after a warning or Hockey Ultimate Team reset. Engaging in these activities can result in your entire HUT Team, HUT account, and NHL 15 online access being banned.
If you believe you were wrongfully banned, you can dispute your ban here.
Some gamers choose to buy coins in order to gain an upper hand in Hockey Ultimate Team. However, buying coins diminishes the enjoyment of HUT for all players, creates an unfair advantage, and impacts the balance of the game.
Participating in coin buying can be unsafe. Some coin sellers have been found to be involved in phishing and account compromise activities. We are not and never have been affiliated with any coin seller or coin selling websites, and cannot take responsibility for your personal information being compromised as a result of any transaction you undertake with these sites.
