Join Modded BF3 Server, Get Your Origin Account Banned?

That’s right folks, your entire library down the drain. Well this is an interesting development. Apparently a few modded servers have begun to pop up on Battlefield 3 Beta’s battlelog with some supporting up to 128 players. EA however, clearly unhappy about this, has threatened to terminate any player that plays on such a server, even if unknowingly:

We are aware that a number of servers have appeared and are running game mods and player counts that have not currently been seen. Please try to remain on official servers.

Official servers run the following configuration:

Max Players: 32
Map: Operation Metro
Mode: RUSH

Please avoid temptation and remain on those official servers while we work to have these servers dealt with. Playing on those servers can cause your account to become compromised, stats to be altered or other issues to arise which may lead to having your account banned by EA.

If your account gets banned it does mean any EA game you have on your account would also be unavailable.

Considering that the topic is currently buried and the servers are appearing on the battlelog itself, it would make many players vunerable.

C’mon EA, it’s bad enough that we’re putting up with Origin and your silly browser-based attempt at social networking, but threatening to disable our Origin accounts? That’s just cruel.
