  1. Well another year is coming to an end and 2019 is just around the corner. We came close to shutting down this year but thankfully our host gave us a great deal that cut our operating costs substantially. We also upgraded our forums to the latest version after years of putting it off do to incompatibility issues with the website. To our donors, streaming admins and other supporters, we wish to thank you for all your support to keep PBBans alive over the past year and previous years. With our lower operation costs, we hope that we don’t have to consider closing anytime soon. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all the staff here at PBBans.

    Website Change Log

    This is a list of smaller changes or additions to the website which I will update as they are made.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    They did but it's not the same MP setup as the original if I recall. Has P2P, low playercount limits etc. https://store.steampowered.com/app/393080/Call_of_Duty_Modern_Warfare_Remastered/

    PBBans Funding

    For the past 13 years PBBans has been completely independent and we have been free to choose our hosting providers because of the donations from our generous community. However, over the past 6 months the monthly donations have not been enough to cover our hosting costs even with the reduction of the amount required. The additional funds have been coming from the months we exceeded our monthly goal which is now running out. Over the years we explored many options to help fund PBBans but our primary goal is to keep our services online and ad free without requiring any fees to use if possible. Using advertisements on the website was an option and we did try Goggle ads for guest users but they didn’t work out in the end. We have had numerous offers from game server providers to host us on hardware they own or rent and we greatly appreciated the offers. We prefer the ability to choose our own hosting solutions and didn’t want to run into the scenario of the GSP no longer wishing to sponsor us and we would be forced to move. Finally, the number of streaming servers has dropped considerably over the last 8 years and the number of active community members with it. With more new games not using Punk Buster it has reduced the community overall. If you use our services, please consider donating if you haven’t already done so. To those that have and continue to donate we thank you. Your contributions help keep our community alive. https://www.pbbans.com/donations.html

    New Forums

    Seems anyone could post in announcements after the upgrade. I fixed that a few weeks ago. I also added a timeout fix to the theme generator code. Hopefully it helps.

    New Forums

    I'm sure you have noticed we have updated our forums. First thing you notice is it moved from www.pbbans.com/forums to community.pbbans.com. The old links should redirect to the new forum as well. Some info you may need: 1. Login usernames are now your display name or email address. 2. Support Tickets no longer exist. All previous tickets will be moved to a sub forum located at https://community.pbbans.com/forum/607-private-support/ in the next day or so. 3. The website is converted to use the new forums however do to the vast number of pages there still may be some parts that have been missed. I will be fixing those glitches as they show up. 4. The theme is not 100% complete and is a work in progress but there should be no issues with using the new forums. The biggest reason to upgrade now is the old forums hit end of life status over a year ago and is open to security risks. They did not work with PHP 7+.

    New Forums

    I only applied the fix to the MPI to see if it worked. I never put it on the account pages yet.

    New Forums

    That's likely from the way the website integrates into the new forums. I've tweaked the mpi area and hopefully it won't do that as often or at all now.

    Rising Storm 2: Vietnam

    Easy Anticheat was recently bought by Epic Games. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/fortnite-dev-purchases-anti-cheat-company/1100-6462364/ Would be interesting if they offer it with Unreal 4 engine down the road.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Nope. Get rid of the small player count for classic game modes and maybe even custom servers and I may consider it.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Steam takes a percentage of the profits but they own battle.net so they keep all the profits. Plus they own and control it.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Its 2 vs 78 which is boring for me. I prefer big teams on smaller maps which flushes out campers etc. That is why I like tdm but tdm in cod bo4 is 6v6 which leads to a lot of looking for people to kill. I really miss cod4 with its 16v16 tdm and was chaos at times. It was a lot of fun for me.

    Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

    Played blackout for 5 minutes and uninstalled the beta. I never played any battle royal game games before and this was the first and last time I play it. Shame World War 3 alpha servers are offline, I would play it over cod any day.

    World War 3

    I like it so far. Can't say much because of the NDA but I am definitely interested.

    World War 3

    Closed beta signups are available: https://worldwar3.com/en/technical-test-signup/ I signed up yesterday and got invited this afternoon.

    Battlefield 5

    I'm not a fan of WW2 era games but I tried it and the first time it wouldn't join a server. Second time it wouldn't deploy. So after less than a few minutes I uninstalled it. They should have made Bad Company 3 or even a BF2143 instead of releasing another WW2 era game so soon.
