  • Now, you will see if you are eligible for appeal. Do note that temporary bans and accounts under review cannot be appealed. Activision also mentions that bans will only be overturned if we determine the infraction was due to unauthorized activity on your Activision account.
  • Complete the process from here and hopefully, your permanent ban should get reversed.

Some players have been banned due to running the scan and repair tool via the Battle.net launcher and for some, it’s happening after the game crashes. Since this is a common issue for many players, it will most likely be fixed in an upcoming patch and all wrongfully banned players will be unbanned. Surely, Activision does not want to lose this player base. But to be on the safer side, appeal your ban in COD MW2 by submitting a ticket and checking how they respond.
