Heya.

A bit of a preface: I've been an avid Forza fan since 7 came out, I always try to race cleanly and am fairly good at the game.

Lately (in a span of two months) I've been banned twice, and I have absolutely no idea what I have done to get banned.

I've reached out to support at forzafb@microsoft.com, but I've never gotten a response.

I'd like to know what the heck is going on? I keep getting banned and I have no idea why. I haven't been ramming, cheating, or anything else.

Heard back from the safety team.

Apparently I got banned once for corner cutting and the second time for shoving.

Here's the thing, though; I know that I haven't purposefully done that. I consistently rank among the top players in multiplayer, know how to follow a racing line and I go out of my way to avoid others or abusing track limits. I asked for video, to see what I've done, but they wouldn't provide it for privacy reasons.

Honestly, I'm scared to go back to playing this game when the ban ends. I've always tried to race as cleanly as possible, respecting other drivers, and I have done really well at the game. Most of the feedback I got from other drivers is very good.

It's ridiculous that you can get banned anytime, for any reason, without any explanation, even when never purposefully breaking racing etiquette.

Same here and some other of my clean friends have been banned...
1 month banned for something you even don't know. No videos, no screenshots, no context...
There is something (or someone) insane inside that game...

There has to be a better way to enforce rules than blind banning.

1. Bans shouldn't be instantaneous 1 month bans based on one event.
2. There needs to be a warning system, and the person banned must know what they were banned for.
3. The game itself needs a system to penalize for contact and track cutting. Bans are not a solution for something that is not enforced (or even mentioned) in game.

The current way of enforcing rules has tremendous potential for abuse, since a player can create situations that can be interpreted as the fault of another, and cause a ban to a player that hasn't done wrong.

Ridiculous. FM7 is full of rammers. Case in point, the first corner of any race with more than 8 players.

Right hand turn, driver turning LEFT


So....yeah, just got banned for sticking onto someone who complained that I must have been dirty! ....LOL, the image is a screenshot of the corner/offence in question, now I admit i lost the apex but there is plenty of room for 2 cars and he was squeezing me off the track as you can clearly see by his wheel pointing LEFT after the apex of a RIGHT hand turn. Sorry Forza, I can't see myself forking out £90 again to get banned for someone elses irrational behaviour and your patheric attempt to enforce clean racing (which in irnoy is actually allowing dirty racers to have clean racers banned!)

Goodbye Forza, a long-time online racer I have been since FM4. NO MORE!


By looking at the recent forum posts, I guess I'm just another innocent casualty of misplaced punishment.....

I got my first ever ban this week after playing FM7 online since it came out. I'm a clean racer & like everyone else I have no idea why I've been banned and I'm not getting ant response from support. It ruins the game and it's a real shame

Your not kidding, lobbies are a joke right now. They need to bring back the driver marshals so they can actually see whats going on instead of judging us on short biased clips and reports. I feel like the respectable drivers have been thrown to the wolves recently. I got a 20 year ban on my main account for getting into it with some rammers, waste of vip purchace. I still play on another account but I will never buy forza again.
