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.

    Halo 5 has done well lmao it's been free and the price has been cut down all the way to $15 and the free DLC maps sucks not even new they add way to much into the game halo was always simple all the armour looks ugly and I hate the levels

    eu tripper. lol halo 5 dead? people still play it, i find games in under a minute so therefore halo 5 isn't dead. i actually think halo 5 has done well.

    My son was falsely reported and now banned. There needs to be proof of wrong doing and not just so easily done by one kid getting upset with another.

    My friend had an RGH console and he modded on WaW. A game that was 3 years old and my account so happened to be on his xbox even though i never participated in it, i received a LIFE long ban. A little bit ridiculous in my opinion.

    Xbox isn't what it used to, that I agree with, they keep launching new technology like the Xbox One X and connecting with the PC more every time, but there isn't a great deal of things to play. Personally I prefer to play any Halo game with friends in Coop PvE or Custom Games, which I feel are a very underrated thing of Halo 5 since it has easily the best Custom Games out of the whole franchise, and I'm also a big fan of Gears of War, and that's good enough for me. I personally only need one game to find the platform enjoyable, and Xbox having 2 franchises in my Top 3 favorite franchises is precisely why I play Xbox. I don't play almost anything outside of that, and to me personally PS4 doesn't have anything that catches my eye, I'd take a Nintendo Switch over a PS4 any day if you ask me.

    E3 was a joke all I see is kids games for 4 year olds it's a joke I don't mind losing my account because xbox is dead halo 5 is dead

    I think the reason why your friend console and your account got banned is...what exact *** you both are doing on XBL?

    Sounds very sinister from the likes of it :D

  • Specie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I do believe you should either be warned before you're banned. My accounts that are EXTREMELY oG all have 10+ year tenures got banned due to the fact they were on my friends console (NOT MINE) while he got console banned. Filing a single case review didn't get the job done as the enforcement "team" probably just laughed. People are serving shorter sentences in jail for ffs for murder and i just played on my friends console when i was at his house. This banning system is ridiculous and NEEDS to get fixed.

    I still blame Microsoft for making bungie leave and halo 4 was a kids game just like halo 5 not even competitive if it was everyone would get banned

  • EU Tripper commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Be nice LMAO when you lose most of the games because it's digital and the account thats older then most kids on xbox and this robot called vamp has been here for 7 months talking *** while he's enjoying being the whole reason why xbox is dying

  • SuperSpartan312 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I know I said that I was gonna take a break but I have plenty of time right now so yeah...
    Actually Tripper, the thing with Microsoft and Bungie was that Bungie wanted to leave Halo after Halo 3 to focus on other games and maybe return to it after a few years, but Microsoft wanted Bungie to continue with Halo, so they went on up to Reach according to their deal to make 5 total Microsoft-exclusive games, all being Halo. After that the rights of Halo went to Microsoft as Bungie didn't want to go on so Microsoft created 343 Industries for them to get the rights and keep making Halo, while Bungie went on to make Destiny. Imo Halo isn't dead, there are still many fans, it's just not the king shooter it was, mainly due to the population splitting and other shooters rising on the market. All good things must come to an end, unfortunately. But I just wanted to clear that bit out, back on topic, I'm just asking one thing: Could you people at least be polite here? I mean, if at least you guys want your accounts back, you have a bigger chance by being polite honestly, because the way Microsoft is doing now is over the top, but as much as I hate to be that guy that says it, just complaining and arguing here won't help, things must be sorted out carefully and with constructive points for overall improvements, after all we all are the customers, and customers should go first because without them there's no profit. Vamp at this point looks to me like either a troll that just wants to get people mad here or is a narrow minded Xbox fanboy who will always defend his "gods". Either way, my point is that my arguing here will only make things worse, so I ask to try to expose things out carefully and with a sense of criticism for everyone to improve, including Microsoft. You don't have to, but I think that if you do it will be for the better.

    vamp is the one who probably got bullied or hacked on xbl hides on a new account spends his most time trying his best here instead of actually playing xbox while it lasts and I can't wait for xbox to die soon because of Microsoft mistakes banning loyal members and making bungie leave halo and we got *** 343 the only flag game on xbox is now dead because of both of them and pretty much a kids console blah blah boring console they need to unban us because we spend more money then *** kids lmao

    Reasons why I think letting violators, abusers and hackers buy back there perma banned account to be complete an insane idea.

    1. It will make a complete mockery of the Terms of Use and Code of Conduct of XBL, in short buying back an account disrespects the entire rules set fort by MS to make the entire XBL community safe and fun place to be as it is now.

    2. Will encourage a mountain of abuse by first time violators as they can get away anyways with any punishment since they can pay back to get their banned account.

    3. Will make reform violators that move on with a new account to feel they have been rip off big time by Microsoft in making a new account and re-purchase items they have lost years ago.

    4. Will weaken the moral and conviction of the entire Enforcement team that false banning of customers actually happens without due care and deep investigations and all the hard work they have done will be disregarded and what more future perma banning of accounts will be doubted or seen as fraud for MS to reek more money to a customer.

    5. Will only make Microsoft look like money hungry and will lose face that this company has no integrity to enforce there own laws if violators can just bypass any rules of MS with money.

    6. It will disgust honest XBL community members that have kept themselves behave and play according to the rules of ToS and CoC for years and they themselves reported violators only to realize in horror that violators can get back to the community as if nothing happen as Area5151 loves so much to claim.

    7. And last but not least Sony and Nintendo will definitely troll MS with its weak policy against abusive gamers and siding with trolls that have money.

    MS if your reading this, don't allow this dangerous idea to happen to your millions of honest customers including me with my real GT that has religiously follow your ToC and CoC and keep the community fun and safe for years or we would all feel betrayed and I might abandon a company that has no balls to stand against there great ET that is doing the hardest job of keeping the XBL community safe and make the best online gaming experience ever then any of the two other Asian console can offer.

    LONG LIVE XBOX!!!! waiting for XBOX ONE X the most awesome and powerful console ever! ;)

    Goodnight everyone!
