EA banning DXVK on Battlefield V

Good friends, finally after some time without being able to play Battlefield V for Linux, this week I was using lutris-4.21, I was having fun when my anti-cheat, FairFight, blew me out of the game, so I was banned. As I was not using any cheating, I think the anti-cheat considered dxvk or the table layer that used at the time as cheating, I sent an email to EA, is the alert.

If you live within EU they’re obligated to give you any data they have on you.
If you didn’t brake any of the ToS they should reverse the ban.
See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0bY_pPslgPE .
Some users in the comments claim that they got their acc unbanned after requesting their data.
Hopefully the next BF will be on steam :steam_locomotive:
edit: typos

Well i have the same problem, i got banned on tuesday for cheating.

Fedora 31
wine tkg-protonified-3.21 ( from the lutris installer )

I opened a case already at the ea help site.
If someone got a reply from them pls update the thread here

Got banned also :frowning:

I opened a case to help.ea.com, it’s now in progress state. Will post here when I got answers.

Ps. BF1 still works.

Admire the sentiment, but it doesn’t have much impact after you’ve already paid your money.

Hi Friends I just received an email saying that the ban I took was correct, so all that remains is to not sponsor EA at all. For me you will not see any more penny.

@snappahead Depending on your bank you may be able to do a chargeback on the purchase of the game which costs EA even more money than simply refunding you.

So well - for some reason after contacting the ea help over twitter i git unbanned from them.
Not sure if this contact is related, but i guess so because i did not get the answer from them in the first place.

One more note:
I did not mention to use Linux at all in the ticket.
