Playing the Battlefield 3 beta on an unofficial server may net you an Origin account ban, DICE has warned.
Associate producer Bazajaytee asked gamers to "avoid temptation".
"Playing on those servers can cause your account to become compromised, stats to be altered or other issues to arise which may lead to having your account banned by EA," he wrote on the Origin BF3 beta forum (pic via VE3D).
"If your account gets banned it does mean any EA game you have on your account would also be unavailable."
Official Battlefield 3 beta servers run the Operation Metro map for 32 people in game mode Rush.
