EA Bribed Battlefont Reddit Mods, Admin Alleges
An EA employee and a number of former mods have been banned by a Reddit admin who alleges that mods were bribed to remove posts that EA did not want appearing on the Star Wars Battlefront subreddit.
Admin Sporkicide explained why he had banned the moderators in the following post: “There was a representative from EA directing moderators to remove posts and prevent certain links from being posted. In exchange, moderators were given perks including alpha access. This had been going on for a while and is completely unacceptable, whether you were personally the moderator to yank the post or not. It appears to have been clear to all moderators what was being asked and what was being provided in return.”
There are also other members of the subreddit claiming that moderators received tickets to the Star Wars Festival and free Star Wars paraphernalia, among other things.
