    How do i get league admin axxs plz?

    From the looks of it the league is still new so you will not be able to get league admin access for the time being. On top of that league admin access has some requirements that must be met. For more information contact RoadWarrior who is the league coordinator. He can help you further. FireStorm

    Only GUIDs which are caught hacking will ever been banned here at PBBans, a full 32 digit PB GUID is the only sure fire way to know the player you are banning, is the one caught hacking. All this linking in MPI via IP address and alias matches for one is not only unreliable, mainly because most people don't know how to fully match and link a GUID together with another one, but can also be forged most of the time. If you really wanted to you could fake a player name, get lucky with a IP address link up and then you are tarring a completely innocent player. The effect of this becomes much worse when you talk of doing it across more than 1 game. The hub has now logged well over 10 million guids, you are gonna get alot of cross over unless you have experience in knowing what to look for. There is another lesser know reason to not witchhunt players, we only ban GUIDs and not players. Its better to give people chances in life or video games in this case for mistakes they make. In order to get a second chance alls they need to do is buy a new copy of the game, this is there punishment for hacking. Once they have served there sentence so to speak they should get a second chance. If you proceed to chase players away from games by banning them from all games with no hope of return, you are only gonna push them further underground and make them even harder to catch in the future.

    PBbans Error?

    Link to his ban at PBBans here http://www.pbbans.com/mbi-viewban-9bcc7624-vb164515.html As well This GUID is globally banned by EvenBalance. So long and short of it, he is free to go to the link above and follow instructions to appeal his ban with a trouble ticket at EB, but its highly unlikely they will lift his global ban, and with a global ban in place his appeal against his pbban will also be denied. Most likely cause of all this... he hacked ... got caught out like 2000 other players ... and is now paying the price. FireStorm

    PBbans Error?

    If it is indeed a 50116 AIMBOT VIOLATION as you stated in your OP then most likely he has also acquired a GLOBAL ban from Evenbalance themselfs. We here at PBBans have no control over these bans and the only person who can lift them are the makers of Punkbuster themselfs. Go ahead and tell him to open a trouble ticket and appeal but until evenbalance lift there global ban (I have never seen one lifted yet) his appeal will be automatically denied here because of it.

    [COD MW2] No dedicated servers or PB

    Remember that only the PC version has advanced features like text chat. If you gave every xBox owner a keyboard as well it would prob be a bit more balanced, I fail to believe that PC gamers are less mature than xBox gamers. We just have higher standards. Its ashame how unlock systems are now used to give longevity to a game, instead of just making a good game players will want to keep coming back to.

    Only if you are on a listening server, there is the choice of using dedicated servers in l4d and l4d2. And they do this while using a matchmaking system as well :P. Using a dedicated server I normally get normal dedi ping times, ie 30 to uk, 40 to nl 60 to de. Lag free gaming with matchmaking IS possible. FireStorm

    Can we neg rep duality yet :P Jokes :D Nah in all seriousness I would half agree, that the game is fine for the casual gamer. As Duality said, if that is all you are and expecting then there is no problem. IW has brought on this hate upon themselves the PC community made them and the cod franchise what it is today, and they have clearly turned there backs on them. There are out there to make money, they have realised there massive potential of the casual gamer which far exceeds the smaller hardcore, clan gamers. I found this article to be quite spot on with the direction they are going http://www.shacknews.com/onearticle.x/60451 The only thing that has really annoyed me is the blatant lies and crap they have fed people which are just clear money making or covering up lazyness. The so called balance changes are simpley there because either a. The console version does not have it and there don't want to waste money putting it in for the PC. b. The limitations of there new software prevent them. This of course only inspired more hate and rallied the community against them even more. I can accept if they game plays well for the casual gamer, I would expect nothing less, it was designed to. The least they could do was be honest about it :/ So they will get no sympathy from me.

    I would not waste the money on it tbh, there are far better games out there to spend your money on rather than spending it on a concept that is inherently flawed and broken. How many people have a decent enought connection in the UK to really support even a 12 player game? Not at a decent net rate it should be played at. COD WAW Zombies is laggy enough with 4 players (feels like I am predicting a quake rocket not a hit scan) and it can only work off the same constrights. You are right about the boycott thing is not gonna affect them much, as the sales has already surpassed record levels but I doubt this will mean P2P will become the norm in PC gaming. Call of Duty is DEAD, accept it and just find a decent game to spend your money on there is plently out there if you look passed all the hype. Rage? pff who cares. Its not got the hype COD had to back it up. So that will fail harder. FireStorm

    Well, I stopped playing the cod series at MW and only play WAW for the zombies mode. i did't even pre-order MW2 to start with because I knew the direction they were taking the game down with more perks and more kill streaks etc. Its funny really, they used to port the PC game to the console, now they are porting the console game to the PC. Theres no real question about it, the COD series has become mainstream and has descended into a console shoot em up. Not only has it been dumbed down by a long list of 'balance' changes (lean, kill streaks, player reductions, FOV) but the level of customisability has been cut to none. There are no admin tools (pb is great admin tool), there are no mods(custom maps) and there is not even a decent place to play anymore (100 ping anyone? good luck) Console players are fine with it because they are used to it. They are used to the narrow FOV and no leaning. They are used to the poor selection of maps and no updates. TF2 which is a game I play often now, was released for the PC and XBox, on the PC it now has 19 official maps, 18 new weapons and 4 new gametypes, all released free of change for the PC. It was not soo long ago that the XboX players were still playing on the same 5 yes thats FIVE original maps with none of the upgrades the PC had, and that was just the offcial content, not including all the custom content. Of course when the update did finally come out, not only did they not get the full update, microsoft made them pay for it. The point is, they are used to this very low and poor level of service, they pay a couple of hundred pounds for there xbox and they get what they pay for. When we pay sometimes 1000s of
