EA has taken rapid action to squash videos as they show up, but yesterday EA Studios Europe's lead community manager took to twitter about the test. Walsh detailed how the test is going, giving details on how many are playing and why EA holds tech tests like these. At the beginning of his thread and in the middle, however, Walsh reminded readers that they are "under NDA for this Playtest, so Videos, Screenshots and Streaming" would result in EA taking action against the posting channel. "Break the rules," said Walsh, "expect to lose access to both the Technical Playtest, future EA Tests, and potentially access to 2042 itself when it releases."

We've already removed plenty of people from the Playtest in these past 48 hours, and they won't be able to play this weekend. pic.twitter.com/EIWaIHIMT2
Which I'm not sure anybody can really fault them for. Break the rules once and clearly EA's not going to keep you around to break them again. Still, it's entirely possible some of these people are those who just didn't really read what they'd signed. If so, then they may well be in for a rude awakening come launch on October 22nd.
