Players BANNED for going to Ilum? Suggestions to Customer Service

This is too vague to be considered credible. Who was banned? When? Where's the ban email? Who did it come from? Or where's the screenshot?

You need some proof to back this up. If you have it, I'm sure there will be a riot. Without it, we can't believe you. Sorry, but that's too crazy to believe without proof.

Personally, I just hope there is more to this. Sneaking into high-level zones to explore and do a little harvesting has been a part of MMOs since the early days. To attempt to nip such behavior in the bud, and in such an unnecessarily dramatic way, has PR disaster written all over it.

So you have no evidence. I am not saying you are lying. It is a very real possibility that the person who told you this story was lying to you. That makes a lot more sense than banning people for going to a planet.

Then I call BS. Post it on another website if you have to. But without confirmation, I'm afraid I believe your claims to be a lie.

LMAO nicely done mate.

Some are exploiting the weekly/daily missions using low level alts on Ilum.

The bans may be connected to that. Regardless I'm always suspicious when people say 'without warning'...usually there is a warning but a GM is hardly likely to post here that the player WAS warned is he/she?

There are 3 sides to every story, your side, their side and the truth. The truth is usually somewhere between the other two. I am sure there is more to this story than is being told, because I cannot see Bioware banning people just for going to a higher level planet. So without Bioware's side of the story - ie the bann notice - we cannot determine where the truth lies.

Man, his performance is really nice. That must be quite the high-end rig.
