1st of all, you only need to break the TOS or ROC Once to get a Perm Ban. Thats Legit all it takes. 
They Don't need to give you a warning, if you break the rules they have the rights to ban you out right, no ifs or buts, thats something you agree to when you create your account

Some publishers/developers don't allow boosting of any sort. Never heard of EA being one of those though.

They are, as it states in their Rules of Conduct, However Ubisoft has been known to be one of the strictest

This thread is giving me massive paranoia. All that work gone just like that.

Same here lol

 

Thanksfully almost all my boost sessions are actually from coop games so techically makes sense I'm going to boost that with my friend you can kick me or ban me for doing something with a friend in a coop game jaja but on the other hand if is a competitive game and you can't doit in a private server I can see the issue actually.

 

Man all those people boosting Fall Guys trophy last month must be scare lol

I think the majority of companies - of which there are few - that frown upon boosting add their own "anti-boost" systems.

Example: far cry 2 / quantum theory. 

You get punished earning too much exp in the form of negative exp or a cap. 

 

I find it hard to believe boosting is policed - especially on ps3 - where 99% of MP games can no longer be earned legit. 

 

As much as I want to believe OP... ; it is almost unbelievable someone was perma banned for boosting on ps3 in a server they had rented.

It doesn't matter what console it was on, if you got reported for it by enough people they will look into it, no matter what. 
Its not a private server, it was a public rented one, still doesn't give you the ability to use it to boost

What is the account name of the banned user? 

I also wonder why OP wasn't also banned. 

He states he was boosting as well.

 

I would guess he wasn't banned for the boosting, more likely for mass kick/ban which lead to mass reporting. 

In a sense, mass kicking/banning could be seen as an unfair advantage as you are preventint others from levelling.

Would you happen to have a link to the specific terms for renting this specific server? Possibly all the conditions that need to be met when it’s public?

If its public, meaning available for anyone to join, it would follow the same rules as every single other public server would follow

Some stand out ones...

  • Examples of abuse in Official Servers and Ranked Servers in violation of the TOS include, but are not limited to:
    • Taking turns killing, reviving, receiving ammo etc.
     
    • Abusing world geometry to your advantage without risk
     
    • Exploiting vehicle damage to repair indefinitely
     
    • Creating a play environment which, by definition or action, creates an inflated scoring scenario such as 'flagru'flagrun
    •  
  • Please note that Server Administrators should not ban players for conduct that is not in breach of the TOS, for example, just because they are winning the round, have killed you, etc. The player being banned must be in violation of the TOS (which may include violation of the particular server's rules, provided these rules are in accordance with the TOS).

    For the avoidance of doubt, Server Administrators will also violate the TOS if they (i) use offensive server names, server art or tags; or (ii) encourage other players to violate the TOS while in game.

Still very odd, we've had rental servers since Battlefield 3 now and all it takes to ban you is one grumpy random to report you? Also, even though the server will be listed publicly you can just password protect it so no randoms join. And on all battlefield games they're going to care about PS3 Hardline?

 

Damn, just fix BFV gobbletrotter

Playstation access a official playstation youtube channel has referenced boosting before. They havent called it by the name of boosting but they have said stuff like. "Get your friends to die" or something like that.

 

They were talking about the star wars battlefront trophy where you need to step on people on hoth I think it or something like that.

 

I also remember playstation access mentioning psnprofiles before but I could be wrong about that.

Do u seriously think gaming companies care if u boost trophies?

you can message EA and they will unbanned you immediately, and they have a warning system same on with fifa you get 3 warnings, and I know that they can spot boosters but they won’t banned the account just you from the game ( unlikely to happen in none sports games ) and once you message them they will unbanned you, somehow the OP didn’t get banned but his friend did? Ok lol 

+

I never heard of anyone get banned from BF Hardline if so then his friend should show the chat long with the PSN agent so we can confirm other than that it’s a lie imo

You and the other people in this thread claiming they know you/were part of this are lying and the story and what "Sony told you" changes every time you post. Nice attempt to get people paranoid though.
