Battlefield and punk-buster just seem to go together. :D I would have been surprised if it went anywhere else.

Been following it and have installed it on my server. I still hope the fix the issue at the source so we don't have to rely on 3rd party rcon plugins.

hey question whos responsible for all the youtube vid of people hacking in the Beta ? Kinda strange theyre account still active and pb is supposed to work ?

PB is only going to work if it recognizes the hack. New hacks take a while to make it into the PB system.

That very thing happened a couple of days after BF3 was released, a mass ban wave. :D

PB works like this:

1. Player Hacking logs-On a Server Running PB..

2. Hack if detected is added to a suspicious list @ PunkBusters.

3. Player still plays ( 1st detection if detected by PunkBusters ).

4. Player leaves the server on his own.

5. Player Hacking logs-On a Server Running PB.. once again.

6. Hack if Detected is added to a suspicious list @ PunkBusters.

7. Player still plays ( 2nd detection by PunkBusters ).

8. Player leaves the server on his own.

9. Player Hacking logs-On a Server Running PB.. once again - BUT if the Hack has been added to PB violation listing, ( takes 3 detections to reduce false-positives ), THEN action Kick / Ban and violation number for type of Hack is loged.

 

seems like a lot... but Players should not be removed from a server unless detected 3 times, to reduce false positives.

I am still playing BF3 and the situation is horrible. This game got killed now definately by cheaters. There is not even one single server available without at least 3-4 aimbot cheating idiots on it and PunkBuster Index says "36 bans in last 24 hours", WTF!!??
This must be 360 bans in last 24 hours!!

 

Sorry for being pessimistic, but I know a bunch of people including me, who have lost trust in PunkBuster. The number of cheaters is too great which makes us not believing that anything would improve on BF4, that's why we decided NOT TO BUY this game.

Regarding cheaters, BF2 was terrible especially after 5 years of release, BF2 BC was little better, but BF3 had been a cheater invaded piece of junk almost from beginning. It was barely fun to play for every legit player, who just wanted to enjoy the game a little.

I am really disappointed cheaters can go so far without being caught in great number!

Be aware that this website is PBBans -- NOT PunkBuster. All that being said, I agree with you about the BF3 garbage going on.
