I think an injunction is better suited.

Call of Duty fan turned up at Activision to protest a ban

A Call of Duty fan turned up at Activision Blizzard’s HQ in Texas to protest a Modern Warfare 2 ban. Yes, really.

As reported by Eurogamer (via PC Gamer), in a now-deleted Reddit post, the Call of Duty fan explained that they had turned up at the Activision Blizzard HQ located in Texas, United States.

However, the fan was stopped by security after entering the company car park. Moreover, the fan claimed to have asked “politely” to be let into the building to protest the ban. The fan claimed to have been wrongfully banned via Battle.net after buying the game for $70 on PC Steam.

Furthermore, the fan claims to have then purchased the game again using a new Battle.net account. However, they were banned for a second time. In total, the fan has apparently now spent $140 on a game they cannot currently play.

The fan arrived at the door of the company on Monday, October 31st in the hope of getting a ban overturned.

Obviously, the fan was refused entry to the premises and was instructed to wait for customer support to resolve the issue regarding the Modern Warfare 2 ban.

The fan stated that after getting nowhere with online customer service, they wanted to speak to someone in person, as it was impossible to do so via regular customer service.

The Modern Warfare 2 ban wasn’t overturned on that day

In this day and age, it can be frustrating if you were wrongfully banned for any number of reasons. What’s more, online customer service isn’t what it once was and it’s increasingly difficult to speak to a real person.

However, it’s not cool to visit a place of work unannounced, especially when the likelihood is that you probably won’t even get to speak to the relevant people to resolve your claim.

Perhaps this fan meant no harm, however, it could be intimidating being approached by an aggrieved customer at your place of work.
