So recently just bought a new PlayStation 2 off ebay (fat model) so I can play some of the old school Socom games again.
I went to log into Socom Combined Assault and it tells me "I was obsereved participating in excessive cheating or other abusive behavior and are banned for 8,523 days, 5 hours, and 24 minutes."
First let me say: NO I was NOT cheating for anyone about to ask or accuse me.
I called the Sony number that is provided in the message and the guy told me to go to Socom.com and contact a moderator... I don't know how much hope I have for getting this problem resolved. But I figured it is worth a shot. So any mods reading this that can help me? (Not sure how exactly. And with Zipper being shut down, heh).
Is there anything I can do to log in? All I want to do is play Socom CA.
And for the record, not banned on any of the other Socom games. Just CA.
The game disc is banned. Did you get the game used? You can buy a new copy of the game, or try a other use one. If you want to get it new you probably not going to find one in you local store. So you will need to buy one online if you want a new disc. There are like $14.00 new with shipping on amazon.com, or there are also other websites you can try to look on.
Yeah I bought the game used on eBay awhile back, along with the other Socom games and PS2.
So the disc is banned? Heh. Is that definite? Is there any way to unban the disc? That question is for you, mods.
I guess I should buy it new then to avoid this happening again. It sucks now I have to buy this game again.
Thanks for the reply.
The mods can't do anything about this. Sony all times tell people to go on socom.com to get you off the phone. Yes the disc is ban. Look like the last person that have the disc did something to get permanent banned. The last year Sony gave any support for this game was in 2009. After 2009 Sony just left the servers up, but don't really support the game servers.
So just bought a new Socom CA game off eBay, made sure it was brand new and still in shrink wrap.
Went to play... Still banned. For the same amount of days. Just less, now...
I am using a different PS2. Different disc. Different IP.
Why am I still banned?!?! arrrrgh this is very annoying.
I don't even make it to the point of where I can choose my name.
I do the fast log in, and when it connects to the server, asks if I accept the terms, I hit accept and then I get the message saying I was banned. I don't even get to choose my name or a different name.
Never mind. Finally got on. I just deleted everything Combined Assault off my memory card. Set up a new profile, got to make a new name, now I am in. Thanks for your help.
