Got baited & then suspended for 30 days - Be careful boys

SDS

I was beating a guy in a h2h seasons game in Madden last night. He then invited me to a party & started talking trash, I gave it right back to him. 5 minutes later I got booted from PSN & got an email from Playstation saying I was suspended for 30 days for violating TOS in voice chat...Be careful what you say in parties anymore boys, Evidently there’s some way to report people for that too now. I didn’t even say anything threatening, Just the usual “Hold that L you f’ing B, ect”. Think it’s time I switch to Xbox before Show 21 comes out, My brother in law says party monitoring & reporting is just a Sony thing.

Although I sympathize with the fact that you got baited and I feel bad for you that you got banned, Sony doesn't ban first time offenders. They always give multiple warnings unless you took it to the absolute extreme which I doubt you did. Either way it sucks.

SDS

Why join the party chat? Its not like you guys were going to exchange recipies for apple pie. The honus was on you. Dont blame the results of your bad decisions on someone or something else. Yes we are all free to make our own choices, in the same way we are all free to live with the consequences of those choices.

I was suspended awhile back for 7 days for messaging back & forth for the same thing - Salty language. So this 30 day suspension was the next punishment. I’m guessing next time would be the 3rd strike you’re out ban. Oh well, It’s on me for not being more disciplined.

If I were you, I'd turn off the ability for people to message you and protect yourself from being baited into something where you'll end up on the losing end.

Because it was a heated & competitive game & in the moment I was ready to drop the gloves so to speak. That’s sports man, At least to me. Tge competitive juices get flowing. But you’re right, It’s on me for going there. I just think it’s silly that if someone invites you to a chat & proceeds to talk trash & then you serve it back that you should be suspended. It’s a sports game. No threats were made or anything like that - just alot of swear words. But it is what it is.

If I stick with playstation I definitely will.

Evidently playstation records all party chats now & someone can just report you from the party - Playstation can then listen to the whole conversation. I guess this was in the message 2.0 update. Beyond what happened just now with this incident - I don’t like that. I don’t like having a 3rd party monitoring all chats at all times. Which it does say in the T&C that they have the right to do. Microsoft doesn’t do that. That along with being 1 strike away from being banned definitely has me considering my options.

It is not what it is. I had my account locked for 3 days because I said things that should have gotten me baned for more imo. I dont think it's silly because if that was a normal social contract life would be rather unpleasant. I commend you for your accountability it's a strong trait. Part of living in a world with 7.5 billion is learning to be civil. With that we will have much farther to go.

Gotcha. I understand that privacy is a valuable thing to a lot of people. To me personally, I don't really care if they wanna listen to what me and my buddies have to say to each other. And although I can sometimes engage in a heated debate (as you are probably aware of), I always try to not cross that line where I would give mods a reason to ban me. But it can be challenging sometimes, definitely if you get baited. We've all been there.

First time I hear of them banning off of voice chat, pretty wild. Didn't know that could happen. Sounds like you're self-aware here so I won't dog-pile on what you should've/shouldn't have done. I will say it's incredibly silly to switch systems just because of this though, but that's just a personal take. Good luck.

I did post it there also. And yes, It was a game of Madden. I’m just posting everywhere to let people know what happened & to be aware so it doesn’t happen to them as well.

I can understand why you would think it’s silly to switch systems. My concern is this - After my suspension is up I will be on my last chance. If I were to get in trouble one more time I’ll be banned. I know people keep saying just turn off your parties & don’t talk to anybody. While I could do that for games like Madden & The Show, I couldn’t do that for COD & Battlefront where you need to be able to communicate with your team. If I was to irritate someone or accidentally say something I just don’t know if it’s worth the risk especially when I’ll be investing in a PS5 once they’re readily available. In talking with some XBox players they have told me that 1) XBox doesn’t monitor parties & 2) If you get in trouble sending messages then XBox just suspends your ability to send & receive messages for awhile - You can still play the games. I’ve always been a Playstation guy but this does have me considering switching.
