    Tsunami, it was temp-ban, for two weeks, not permanent one.

    br0nse is also one of the select few who did donate his own money to keep the PB servers up, back in April. Servers you can all still play in.

    Donations and straight monetary support should not make players exempt from following the rules, yes I agree. But jumping on them for whatever reason of your dislike AFTER they have had their punishment is also complete injustice.

    1. Why was his weapon a baseball bat? Did he have a damagehack and this is to avoid automaticban by damage per hit?

    2-. I dont play hardline. Is there some kind of damage penalty for wallbanging? Did he use a damagehack or were those shots possible and the complete map is made out of cardboard?

    Some old BF2 hacks "killed" with a ammo pack. It's probably to avoid anyone (and automated cheat/stats analysers) looking too closely at his stats. "So he has 100% hit rate with a baseball bat?"

    Probably damage hack on top of it all.

    PB servers are all 30Hz while LF's are 60Hz. I don't know about you but I can feel the difference starkly while playing.

    Would it be possible to up the "hertz" of at least PB#2? Because frankly, this server is all about killing and at the moment, players employing slower-cycling weapons are at disadvantage.

    This is not a software conflict because only a small percentage of BFH players got a PB BAN. If hundreds got banned every 2 hours, I would believe it. In my eyes, you guys are cheaters. You tried hacks even if the hack did not work or it your anti-virus blocked it, PunkBuster still detected it and flagged your account. A lot of hacks have malware to steal your account and password. The people who coded the hack could have logged into your account without you knowing about it.

    This is pretty much the end of all Battlefield and Call of Duty games with PunkBuster and dedicated servers (COD 2, COD WAW, & COD4). I suggest you guys to go play a game on Steam and buy BF1 or BF5. You should format your PC to remove any traces of hacks you guys tried. Never ever go to a hack site again.

    It could also be malicious Javascript loaded into browser on a hack site, which in turn pulled in something from Internet that Punkbuster did not like. Or a hash collision between a files of a known hack and some obscure file. Or a cheatengine for some singleplayer RTS game. Rare file hash collisions are possibility (especially with older algorithms like "md5" or "rc4") and are always a head ache when they happen.

    Calling affected players straight cheaters is pretty blatant personal insult. Consider false detection from the past, where affected players ran for example management software that came with the popular gaming peripheral. Innocent but other players in general virtually crucified them - would YOU appreciate this done to you?

    Cheaters also do not complain in open forums. They'd go straight to their "service provider" web site and complain like hell there. They might protest manual ban by server admin claiming to be innocent but most are knowledgable enough to differentiate between global permanent GUID ban and private server ban - they wouldnt bother crying to private server admin.

    Evenbalance responded me that they find #52120 is not a false-positive and are not going to be removing it.

    So, instead of waiting for "any new(?) in this ban"

    1) If you are banned, buy a new game.

    2) Get crackin' at solving the puzzle - "what precisely triggered the ban". Unless you present Evenbalance clear proof about false detection, there is no way they ever lift the ban.

    At least 3 banned players were running Windows 7. That's one common denominator I've noticed.

    Most "weird" issues are caused by faulty PSU. Especially "rebooting issues".

    IF you have another PSU around, test your PC with it, see if it fixes the reboots. Ask some friend for a loaner perhaps. Not even supposedly high quality PSUs are not excluded from failures.

    Quality you can evaluate by checking reviews or just weighting your PSU. Heavier means better quality - more circuitry, filters, heat sinks.

    I wrote email to EvenBalance giving them a heads-up and suggesting they have false-detection.

    Response I got is following:


    Hello Ahto,

    This is not a false positive. We do not find this violation to be triggered in error and it will not be removed.[IMG:]

    So, guys who got banned, you are out of luck.

    AFAIK Punkbuster is "immediate"-kind of anticheat. It finds something, bang, you are out of server. Nothing I found from Internet claimed otherwise.

    VAC bans could take from 1 day to few weeks since the moment of detection and it's intentional design by Valve.

    I tried any which way to get my spare BF3 account banned playing around with overlay software (afterburner). No such "unluck".

    Could be windows, could be graphics driver, could be some peripheral driver.. all it takes is a hash collision (between some file in your PC and hash of an already known hack)

    The bans are delayed. You could have been flagged anywhere from the last ban wave in 2015 til the end of May 2018. It could be some kind of new application or mouse/keyboard software from a new manufacturer.

    Punkbuster is delaying bans since when? I thought it's Valve's VAC that's using this strategy. PB hasn't had single update since 2015.

    #52120 bans have been dished out for BF3, BF4 and BFH. It's probably false positive of a pretty commonly used external program that some way hooks itself to game executable. If it was real aimbot, it would be limited to single game. My 2 cents.

    Afterburner would be suspect. It does hooking.

    EvenBalance generally does not revert their bans unless it's caused by their own software faults, bunch of people get banned because of it and they happen to recognize it.

    One guy who got PB-banned because extra software in his PC had to drag his PC physically to EvenBalance, having shut it down right after receiving his ban.

    He did got his ban lifted because investigation proved that it was triggered by some sort of custom marine traffic program in his PC. Not by hack. Or so I remember this story from about decade back.

    And Kev at 5:40 when Rokebo ask if i'm admin and you said "he wish", you are very wrong ( i have lost so many hours recording hackers to help admins ), i'm only here to help keep the servers free of hackers so maybe next time i was spectating a hackers i quit spectator mode and i will let the server be empty if you like to play better at an empty server.

    Sarcastic remark showing disrespect Kev felt towards cacho. He should have given admin kill command to himself at that point.

    Gallows humor btw.

    Sometimes that works, but it didn't work this time. His chatlog says "ya know we can see there is 2 spectators on he server" and calls people fgts too. He might as well get banned too.

    If I were admin, I would just ban all their members including the founder: TuckerTheLad because this is a hacking/cheating platoon. The founder has the same amount of start hours as DynEx3 and OlliieExe. If you do not ban them now, they will start rage hacking and empty the servers when admins are not around.

    Found the following from his chatlog

    #PB 1 | best CQLarge | Votem... OlliieExe well im cheating and iv not been kicked xD May 13, 2018 3:11 AM

    #PB 2 | best TDM | Votemap |... OlliieExe is this a cheating server or do i gotta toggle off... May 7, 2018 7:51 PM

    The "n-word"

    #PB 5 | best Dust only | Vot... OlliieExe dumb fucking niggers get fucked camping like that May 7, 2018 12:59 AM

    Did not skim through older logs..
