Foul and abusive language may not be a red card offense in professional football, but it is in the FIFA 20 gaming world of football.
An e-World Cup semi-finalist and professional FIFA 20 gamer has been given a lifetime ban. The ban is not only from the FIFA game, but any game made by its producer EA Sport.
The professional gamer know as Kurt, ‘Kurt0411’ Fenech has been banned for life from any games published by EA.
He is accused of repeatedly violating the company’s code of conduct with “abusive and threatening” behavior.
Check out the video that was considered the last straw and got Kurt banned.
EA sport have since issued a statement highlighting their reasons behind the action.
“In November 2019, after a series of code of conduct violations as part of the EA Sports FIFA Global Series in which he threatened employees and other players, Kurt0411 was banned from competing or attending any EA Sports FIFA 20 Global Series events or future competitions.”
“Since that time, Kurt has continued to post abusive and threatening messages and videos about EA employees and competitive players on social media and he has encouraged others to do the same.”
“His messages have crossed a line of decency into very personal attacks and breach our Terms of Service. We will not tolerate threatening behavior.”
“As a result, today Kurt0411’s EA account will be banned from playing our games and accessing our services due to these serious and repeated violations.”
Kurt has fired shots back, at the gaming giant.
