    Someone on Reddit has stated that Mojang banned their account for use of VPNs.

    If you use VPNs, I suggest you disable them when connecting to Minecraft. Even though the EULA/ToS does not state anything about VPN usage, I recommend not using it if you use VPNs.

    At the moment it seems to only have been done to Chinese players, but either way this is troubling to say the least (some of the reddit theories are worth a read)

    Well, I have some speculation on why this is happening. they could be banning accounts because they are developing a Chinese version of minecraft

    unless the eula states no vpn, i can use a vpn all i like and if i get "banned" then you know you could take them to court, dont see why you would though
