Get A Banned Account Back (Enforcement Team Manners)

Permanently suspended and can't get your account back? Well I think you should be able to receive one warning for small actions like being a part of a modded lobby. If you're permanently suspended be able to buy your account back for a reasonable price.

I also think that the enforcement team should fit in with the customer support and actually learn how too type message responses instead of copying and pasting a reply.

    Currently, I've gotten two enforcement warnings, one of which was completely my fault and another was because of another guy, I have realized my mistakes and I'm afraid someone will report me for something stupid again in the future and my account will be banned. I personally would be devasted if I were to lose my account.

    There are better solutions to dealing with this:
    - one of which can be you must be friends with the person to message them. This would
    prevent people in the heat of the moment from lashing out.
    - Permanently disable messages only, no need for permanent account deletion. Why should
    I as a loyal customer be banned for someone thinking it cheating?
    - A better section where players can talk to support about the situation

    VOTED! I totally agree!!! It's unjust and unfair and there needs to be at least someone to talk to, to fix the problem that you've been accused rather the executed in a sense.

    Add me if you guys ever wanna play.

    Totally agree - Microsoft has a flawed process for banning accounts. It's definitely going to be PS4 if my account isn't back on by tomorrow.

    This is a pathetic process that even Microsoft can't manage. My two cents

    all account bans deserve a appeal option, especially if the ban occurred more then 3 years ago, most probably wont deny wrong doing. And lets be honest half of the people banned permanently were slapped with an over reacted disciplinary action. there are soft mods and hard mods, hardware modding for online gaming IE. GOD MODE on COD is definitely wrong and deserves perm BAN. however software modding IE. Years of Service, GAMERSCORE, and your AVATAR doesn't deserve a perm ban, Sure you should ban them for a length of time to show them you wont tolerate it. and to deny them the opportunity for a case review is ridiculous! What i did was wrong, but i still deserve a second chance! or atleast be able to log in and download the games i paid for. please xbox enforcment allow everyone to submit a case review!
    And you dont even allow the banned accounts to log into the USER.Voice website and voice there opinion! shame shame. its a page for voicing opinions that we banned folk cant voice in? why?

    Is he banned? People are banned for less like curse words in messages! or threating with bodily harm thro messgaes! but this guy can talk about killing stupid people in an official xbox forum and get away with it!
    your system for banning is broken! And that is why we all should be allowed to submit a case review, Regardless of the offense!

    If anything, not everyone because there are people who got banned by hacking, cheating, modding, etc, as well as people who REALLY went way too far with their words and crossed the line. Those do deserve a ban IMO, but Microsoft is just way too strict nowadays for comn bans. You say "F*** you" in a message to someone who trolled you and boom, you're banned. You accidentally join a modded lobby figuring out it's modded after joining and you're f***ed. On the other hand, people rarely get banned by exploiting glitches and stuff to their advantage in games, or trolling others, and THAT'S what they should be focusing on if you ask me.

    Also, using modding tools for small stuff like further account customization and harmless fun isn't bad either. The modding community can elaborate so much stuff but since Microsoft limits people to their tools they restrict a lot of chances for fun. A system filtering what type of mods are allowed and which ones aren't could be a good idea. Modding for fun without harming others isn't bad; a great example is Gamecheat13. Now online mods for cheating in online games are obviously bad and those all deserve an instant ban, for sure.

    Now back to the point, overall Microsoft needs to sit on the table and seriously reconsider what is ban-worthy and what isn't, as they should've realized by now their current system does more harm than good as they can see here, because:
    1: They really can't expect people to create a child friendly environment in a platform in where most mainstream games aren't precisely child friendly. To me they look like they want to create some kind of virtual utopia where everyone is happy and play content, but actually is more like a forced scenario where you get kicked out if you don't behave just like they want to, almost to dictatorship levels, but that just can't be possible. There will be salt, rage, trolling and swearing, and they need to acknowledge that.
    2: Kids are also getting banned because as opposed to the little innocent creature they make us look like, pretty much almost every kid that plays online nowadays know how to insult and they usually rage a lot when things don't go their way. However, kids usually don't have the sense of responsibility and self-control adults do and they aren't just gonna stand there when they're getting trolled. Sure, you could blame the parents for not controlling their kids, but do parents really need to be on top of their children when they do something as simple as to play videogames too? Videogames were made for entertainment and fun first and foremost, but kids would definitely hate their parents controlling them even when they're playing, and that ruins all the fun for them.
    My point: Microsoft can't expect everyone to behave excellent whether they're kids, teenagers or adults, and they're trying to control their players too much. There needs to be limits for sure, but the limits themselves are very controversial right now and re-making the system would greatly benefit the customers, and that would benefit Microsoft too. Customers need to be always the first priority of any company, as they're the source of their money after all. If customers aren't satisfied with the service they stop using it and that means less money for the company in question, this time being Microsoft.

    That's all I have to say now, sorry for the long paragraph but I like to be detailed.

    My account was wrongfully banned and I am sick of this Enforcement Team and Microsoft not caring about anyone! Why even have a appeal option when it's looked over! Moving to PS4! They will never do me like this. I've lost over 30 games ( x$60 ) and I can't play any of them. Merry Christmas play station!!! I'll come back to Xbox if my account gets unbanned for the false accusation and harsh punishment. For now, peace!

  • XBLETmasterV36 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate


    No Xbox one cannot unbanned you coz its only a console.

    @Shark werewolf

    No, there will be no refunds from Xbox live as its only an internet game service and you can't sue it coz its only an internet game service not a person.


    Don't worry Perma banned are also being given to hackers, cheater, console modding or illegal acts, they all can get insta perma banned. However for people that can't stop abusing the messaging system or voice com, MS does give a chance to them to learn from their mistakes, but if still they never learn, they have no choice but to perma banned them so they will really learn this time and move on to either a new account or other service that has similar rules and punishment.

    if xbox live deleted people accounts and all the games bought downloaded..
    I will expect they will give money or they will be hearing for people lawyers for a law suit.... some people put a thousand a or more into games

  • SleetyLand26709 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Permanent bans should really only ever be given in cases such as hacking , cheating , console modding or illegal acts but seriously for messaging people is jus ridiculous my real account has been wrongfully banned until 9999 and by then the scumbags at the enforcement team nor i will be around unless we carbon freeze our selfs and i just want my account back fam going thro a lot rn :( . I also think its exremly wrongful that you loose the right to everything you paid for after permanent ban e.g games bought + dlc + live and there is no warnings its just ridiculous.

    I'm not getting one, simply because:

    -No Money for one.

    -No 4K TV so there's no point.

    -No interest in the 4K itself anyways, everything the Xbox One X can do that I care about can be done by the Standard Xbox One too.

    Plus while Xbox is my main platform, I'm not a fanboy of it. I'm literally way more excited to get a Nintendo Wii U than I'd be for an Xbox One X. Yes, you read it right, not a Switch, a Wii U.
