I've played in the Open Beta and have had no issues so I had the crazy idea to spend money on this game thinking I could play it. Boy was I wrong. Well, I was right for 2 days. But then last week on Thursday I come home from work and get the error code from EasyAntiCheat 0006000043 and am booted from every game I join immediately.
I quickly take to the wonderful Google to search for solutions or other poor souls with the same problem. I find solutions, but none of them work. I also find those poor souls I mentioned for whom the solutions also did not work.
We've all filed support tickets and were told the same thing: "This is a known issue and we're working on it."
We wait a week without playing this game until we get news about a hotfix coming on 2/21/2017. Oh my god when I read that I thought it was the light at the end of a dark and painful tunnel. And I was wrong again.
At work today, I'm excited to finally play the game I spent $100 on. Then 8 A.M. rolls around and I get an email notification on my phone. I then see that I have been "permanently suspended" for "cheating" and "use of unauthorized hacking programs."
Surely this is just a phishing scam for my account information, I think to myself. But it wasn't asking me for my info. It wasn't even asking me to argue my case. It just said "We caught you cheating and you're now totally banned. No proof, no case, nothing. HAHA!"
I was so livid, you can hopefully imagine. I haven't even been playing the game for 6 days and I get banned for cheating? I HAVEN'T EVEN BEEN PLAYING THE GAME! was about all I could think in my head over and over again.
Every chance I could I scoured Reddit and the Ubisoft forums. Very few people on Reddit apparently are aware of/experience this same issue. But then noon rolls around and I re-check the thread on the support forums for Ubisoft and see that other people who have experienced the EAC error are being banned for nothing.
Oh but that's not the fucked up part yet, no sir or ma'am, the truly fucked up part is the fact that some people have been banned without even playing the game or multiplayer. Some players experienced this EAC error right as they bought the game, and now they are banned without having ever played a single match. There is even one player who has only played story mode so far, and he got banned too. There's even a thread on the hot page of this very subreddit who got banned from the game without even owning the game.
What the actual fuck is this?
Please, spread the word and raise awareness on this issue. I did not cheat, and I firmly believe everybody else mentioned in this thread (and linked to down below) are innocent as well. We've been wrongfully banned and have been robbed of the money we spent to play this game.

And everybody else mentioned in this thread have posted their stories here: http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1575873-Stuck-with-Error-006000043-or-blocked-by-EasyAntiCheat-%E2%80%93-How-to-resolve-this-issue/page14
(Starting at page 14) .
EDIT: YES WE MADE THE HOT PAGE. HOPEFULLY NOW UBISOFT WILL SEE THIS AND RECTIFY THIS MISTAKE. OR AT THE VERY LEAST ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WE'VE BEEN WRONGFULLY BANNED AND SOOTHE US WITH SWEET WORDS OF EVENTUAL APPEAL
