"We are only taking action against players who modify their multiplayer game to gain unfair progression, unfair advantage, or affect the experience of other players.
Examples are (but not limited to):
- Increase leaderboard rating.
- Increase amount of credits received on a match.
- Increase/modify weapon/power stats."
So I think Thomas either got his S's and P's mixed up, or the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. More likely the former.
Or they simply could just be trying to dissuade people from modifying their games' files.

EA has realized, like Steam, they can enforce whatever counter cheat methods they want by forcing us to use Origin. Now, I don't really mind, but I will should I suddenly lose access to my games because I chose to cheat in single player. I'm not happy with the forced multiplayer in ME3 anyway. I buy FPS games for MP, and RPG/Action games for my personal, single player, enjoyment.
Should EA attempt to block my access to any game I paid for, I will most likely bring on a class action similar to what happen to Apple when they declared Jailbreaking was illegal. We know where that went - the courts said it was perfectly legal to modify the code on a device the user owned.
Trainers and setting files, I believe, would fall into the same category of code modification. After all, we're cheating in a single player game; not modifying code to steal it!
The whole point, here, is Thomas DID NOT get his S and M's mixed up. He really meant singleplayer because it does, supposedly, affects the multiplayer.
I call BS on that since I didn't buy the game for, nor was I aware it required, multiplayer gameplay.
Seriously though, you can't possibly know whether or not Thomas meant S and not M, because the only other post on being banned on SP for modifying files says you won't be banned.
That's the problem with the internet... people will believe bad news instantly and spread it around instantly, whereas if it's good news people will question its validity and not say anything.
Perfect example is this: two posts in the one thread contradict each other, one says you'll be banned for modifying a file for SP, the other says you won't. People believe the post which says you will as fact and ignores the other one.
It is your real opinion that it's true, not your informed facts, until someone else posts confirming it.
Good luck suing EA too.

In other words, don't cheat in multiplayer or you risk being banned. Cheat/tweak/mod in SP only and you're OK.
I will tell you this. Right now. Your Law suit attempt will fail against EA if you did. They have clearly said in there TOS that you violate any sort of rules or do anything naughty in there eyes and they will take your rights away. This has been looked over by lawyers again and again. They are in sound mind to stop you access.
Personally I have no problems if they do. Cause if anyone is caught cheating they should have there access removed! Again Cheating in any form on MP is totally wrong!
