Account Termination with Google Play
I was hoping to get some advice from other developers on how to proceed. Last Friday before the weekend my Android Developer account was terminated without any prior warning or reason given. I had only set up the account the day before it was terminated on that Thursday. Like the email mentions: (""as outlined in previous emails to the registered email address(es) of the Publisher accounts(s)"") but since my account was made just the day prior I'd never received an email from Google Play Support (I have received the payment confirmation for the 25$ cost to register though)
So within a day I have to assume I accidentally did something that would warrant termination without a warning (warnings and reasoning should be provided according to Google Play's policies https://play.google.com/about/enforcement/enforcement-process/ except in the event of serious violations)
Since I wasn't given a reason I'm going to have to assume that the reason falls (""under such as malware, fraud, and apps that may cause user or device harm"")
I've got a few assumptions:
From the looks of it I've been slapped with a life-time ban from the Google Play store- Has anyone else dealt with similar issues? Is this normal? From the sound of it the appeals process has a low success rate and may likely get slapped by a bot. If you've dealt with this issue and got past it- What was your solution?
Sorry about bringing up issues with an unrelated service to the UE4 AnswerHub- I figured that this would be relevant to other developers though.
I'd really appreciate some advice here like I said- This seems like an extreme punishment for me setting up so I could see if the play store would kick back my game to me. I've got a working version for Android and figured the next step would be to see if the play store could push the game back to me for testing since I wasn't familiar with the store (Not opening to public of course) - Although I guess this slows if not halts any sort of public beta plans for me on Android.
