Being banned from all a company has to offer seems like almost utopic. You have to do something pretty awful, and yet, it happened recently to a FIFA player named Kurt Fenech (aka ‘Kurt0411’ on YouTube). An official statement made yesterday (February 24) by EA itself brought the sad news for the player. The company defends its decision by saying that the player has made severe and repeated violations.
The FIFA player Kurt0411 was banned by EA in November 2019 from playing in any events from FIFA 20. The accusation was that the player threatened employees and other players. Now, the penalty has been enlarged for a more serious reason, and the player doesn’t have access anymore to any games and services provided by Electronic Arts.
He hacked Twitter accounts
As an act of revenge, the banned FIFA player started to hack Twitter accounts of EA employees and make posts on their behalf. Fenech is known to be also severely critical about EA’s services on his YouTube channel and Twitter account. He also denigrated the latest FIFA game which he himself plays, claiming the following:
EA has done everything this year but look at themselves and admit they f*cked it. They killed their game and their ‘esport’.
Whether he’s right or not, it could be a serious subject of debate. The truth is that not everybody is satisfied with FIFA games, and some people prefer Pro Evolution Soccer instead.
Was EA scared of Fenech?
A series of tweets from the FIFA player came as a response to the latest ban he received from EA, and they created both laughs and support. Fenech said:
I have never said anything I shouldn’t have,
This is just deeper than anyone thinks. They didn’t want me competing at events cos they were scared I’d win them.
Whether Fenech deserved to receive such a drastic ban or not, one thing’s for sure: threatening people and hacking their Twitter accounts to speak on their behalf are rude and uncivilized acts.
