  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.
  2. It's that time of year again where 2019 is coming to an end and 2020 will be upon us in a few short weeks. Not a lot to post about this year in regards to our community. Player counts in Punk Buster enabled games continue to decline but we will be around so long as the demand and funding is there. A big thank you to CU – DizzyKipper who has given far more in donations every month to keep our community online. Relying on one person to donate far more than they should have to is not something we like to see. We hope others will step up in the new year if they are in a position to do so. We also understand communities are moving to new games too which impacts donations. 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. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at PBBans.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    I tried the beta and it's a step towards bring back the cod4 / mw2 feel but has all the issues that turned me away from cod years ago. Ground war is 32 vs 32 which is a good playercount but tdm is still 6 vs 6. Matchmaking with pre-defined playlists is also a turn off. I got bored after a few rounds and went back to playing single player gears 5.
  8. Will likely remove it

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Open beta is Sept 21 for all. Noticed that pc and console players can play with each other. See how long that lasts with PC cheaters vs the console users.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Doubt it but with 20 vs 20 tdm and maybe others they need to use dedicated servers so at least that is a start. I'm just happy they are finally going back to larger player counts. I couldn't stand the 5v5 and 6v6 crap year after year. Also they plan to do cross platform between pc and consoles so it will be interesting to see how they keep cheaters out of the console world.

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    They made a remaster of cod4 and it never took off for mp. It was the same P2P / Matchmaking crap that MW2 started. 6,075 - all-time peak https://steamcharts.com/app/393100 If it supported dedicated servers, more than 12-18? players, server browser etc like the original cod4 then it may have been more popular .

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

    Still won't come close to what cod4 pc was I'm sure. MP will just be the same as MW2 onwards.

    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+.
