Some Elden Ring players are reporting getting banned for “inappropriate behavior” when logging into the game.
What was initially thought to be an Elden Ring server outage appears to be a ban wave, with all players receiving the same message before being forced to return to the main menu. Various users of the game have shared screenshots of the ban online and the number is growing.
Why this is happening is not known at the moment. While the message states that players behaved inappropriately during their time playing Elden Ring, this could just be a bug.
Some Elden Ring players are reporting the following message when logging into the game:

If this is a bug on the developer side, it could mean innocent players will be banned for no reason and the issue needs to be fixed. While players are booted from the server, they can still play offline, meaning they won’t lose any progress. However, you cannot engage in PvP or co-op until the ban is lifted.
If the ban wasn’t accidental, it could mean that a group of players have been flagged for their actions, whether it’s using offensive language or exploiting game-changing bugs and exploits. If this is the case, they will be subsequently blocked.
@ELDENRING Are the servers down or have I been banned for some reason?

Is Elden Ring down?
At this stage it is not certain whether the bans are legitimate or erroneous. However, the general opinion on Twitter is that this is a bug and related to an ongoing server outage affecting some players.
Dexerto tested Elden Ring and found that we were able to access the game as usual. So if it’s an outage/bug, it’s only affecting some players at the moment.
We’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available from players and FromSoftware/Bandai Namco.
