Falsely banned on BF3 by PunkBuster...

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I got kicked from a BF3 game today and received the following message:
Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'IamaznX' (for 2 minutes) ... Violation (GAMEHACK) #89271
Now I can't play on any server with PB enabled...
I've already sent a ticket to both PBBansHub and EvenBalance. Does anyone know how long it will take for them to reply? And what does #89271 mean?

Quick question do you have bittorrent running?

My internet was only running at 1/3 of it's normal speed the past day or two. In some of the games I joined, my ping sometimes shot up to 1000 before going back to 200-300... I fixed my connection problem today and just before I was banned, my ping was always under 100, usually at 50-60.

Ping isn't going to get you PB banned for a hack.

Well I'm fully legit. I just bought Premium ($40) two weeks ago... Why would I hack and risk getting banned?

That doesn't prove anything. Since you were only banned for 2 min, try reinstalling Punkbuster and hope it doesn't occur again.

Upon joining a room, it says I've been banned for 1200 minutes. I'll try reinstalling PunkBuster.
Reinstalling PunkBuster didn't help, I'm still getting kicked with a message that says I've been banned for 1200 minutes.
