    Default Can't play online

    Okay, so today I play was playing as normal and then I decide to back out and let my brother play on a Skyrim. Once he went out I put gears back on and it says that my current settings do not allow me to play online.

    I looked at some of the other post saying about bans but I very rarely play gears and everything has been okay since today and I have NEVER modded/hacked and I need to know whats up.

    My brothers account is banned but hes never put gears of war in since his ban ( if this effects me playing )

    Thanks.

    Okay, so my brother came round to my house on his banned account to play Skyrim and as soon as he signs in it bans my console from playing gears of war?

    when people are banned, it bans their profile and every xbox they play on. bans are permanent, it wont be reversed.

    Pretty much, you should blame your bro for modding the game and getting you both banned.

    it is part of the agreement you agree to when signing up for xbox live. do not allow modded profiles on your xbox. be glad its not an xbox ban. every profile that plays on your xbox will be banned too, a little fyi so you dont accidently get friend who come over to play banned.

    Wouldn't happen.
    You can have a banned account on your Xbox - however that will not effect your console UNTIL you start Gears 3. Epic doesn't have access to follow a account and check what console it's on UNTIL Gears 3 is started up and you push "Start" on that screen where it Downloads the playlist. In this process it sends off your Console ID along with your Profile ID.

    So if you got banned. Your brother booted Gears 3 up -- or this is the case of another: My "brother" did it.

    Also Joe Graf did a ban wave this week that banned those added to his list. When you use any developer medal, weapon skin or jump insanely high in stats -- you're added to the list to be banned during the next ban wave. Conveniently after this ban wave - you come here.
    Or your brother played GoW3 on your console between the last ban wave and the recent one.

    That would do it.
    Nope, if your account is banned - you will need to create a whole new account.

    I know what you said answers my question but I just want to confirm.
    so the account im using did not get banned but I can't play online because the console is banned, so that means if I get a new console I will be able to play online?

    Your account is banned to. Your console gets flagged - then all accounts that use it get banned.
    So it's your console AND now your account.

    So you need a new console + new account.

    Does anyone know if bans will carry on to future games made by EPIC?

    Entirely possible. Some of the GoW2 bans carried over, some didn't.
    Likely the accounts that got the initial ban will carry over.

    If you were the original one to be banned - expect it (just saying this because basically EVERYONE banned blames a friend/brother/dog [and yes Flak did get one saying their dog caused it]). Not directly saying you were at fault - however experience on these forums.....

    Bans are all permanent. You need to get a new Xbox and make a new account in order to play again Gears 3 online.
