    BANNED FOR AN OFFENSIVE EMBLEM ?

    Monko04
      Hello there i have recently logged into my call of duty black ops account and have found out that i have been banned for an offensive emblem, i have recently bin out of the country on business and have come back to this. I let friends use my PS3 for call of duty black ops to help me rank up faster without me there but whilst working away they apparently have made an offensive emblem :\ i would take it to great appreciation to the Trench Yard Team and Administration Team to help me become " unbanned " so i could log on to my player card and change it back to what it was i have learnt a lesson from this by not letting my friends use my PS3 while away.

      I look forward from hearing from you Warren Monks

      p.s If anyone has had the same prob and has been in touch by Trench Yard please could you help me with this situation Thank You.

          Hey Black Ops Community –

          Treyarch is committed to providing all gamers with the best online experience possible, and that means maintaining the game’s integrity. We have a zero tolerance policy against exploitation, and this is to protect the many gamers who go online to compete and have legitimate fun. Below is a brief outline of our security and enforcement policy which will remain posted and will get updated here.

          The team at Treyarch has worked very hard to create a fun, competitive online environment, and we want to keep this environment clean so that the game can be played as it was intended. Users who abuse the game through modding, boosting, glitching or making offensive emblems degrade the online experience for others, and we will take action to prevent this from happening.

          Bans cannot be appealed.

          Keep it clean. Play nice. Have fun.

          Thanks

            I too have been banned from the emblem editor, because of an offensive emblem. I hope that I will be able to make them because I would never ever make an offensive,inappropriate emblem on this wonderful game Call of duty: Black Ops 2
