im not sure they did that, as far as i know, the most they did was reset all of your stats, unlocks etc.

But, i could be wrong, i just remember lots of stat resets. The only bans i thought were strictly punkbuster bans.

For stats based abuse, yes, you got your account wiped. This was because statspadding only really affected your own account. Cheating/exploiting got your cd-key & GUID banned.

PB would also keep IP logs of bans. It's not really feasible to play via a proxy, so they were actually quite good.

I think if anything, EA should get more involved with Evenbalance so that EA accounts are somehow linked into PB accounts. Since CD keys are linked to EA accounts, bans on punkbuster servers could result in banning the CD key instead of just the name of the soldier.

I think BC2 will die down VERY quickly when BF3 releases. That's a major problem for gaming now. We're hopping along from game to game every few months. Honestly I wish BC2 was just never developed and all that work was just put into BF3, which we would have by now. I'm not saying I dislike BC2, I think it's great.

it would be awesome if they got rid of punkbuster and just used VAC or something. I still get kicked from games in BC2 AND BF2 for stupid stupid punkbuster. I cant even play COD4 with a Steam Overlay because of it.

I'm sorry alex98uk I'm didn't mean to convey that I was rage gamer. Team work will beat the cheats every time.

I agree with you. Maybe its different in the UK. It must be. In the US its norm to see maybe guessing 5 out of 32, every 32 man server you go to. T-90 making head shots across the map. Google bfbc2 hacks 61,900 hits
Even on the PPBan servers. They have ban 1000's. Its not uncommon to watch 5 or 6 get ban during one match on PPBan servers. MBL.

What we need is a pro active approach like StarCraftII. Not only do you lose the key code and software. You will never connect to the network with that computer ever. Hardware ban. Sure some get around it. At what cost?

Its EA's network, Its EA's TOS. They pass ball to Even balance. Now go to Evenbalance website. The website looks like it was written in 1995. Do you trust them with network security? That's what we are talking about here.
Locks only keep an honest man honest. If you have a rusty broken lock on your door, even an honest man will walk in and steal from you.

VAC is not nearly as active as punkbuster in banning hackers, though it is much more permanent.

I've never had problems with punkbuster except for the steam overlay (easy fix) and before Vista was released. As long as you keep it updated, and turn UAC off there shouldn't be a problem.

in my hundreds of hours playing bc2, i have only seen a few hackers, and they generally get banned fast, if not, i just change servers.

I play on the the (BIG) servers now. The group is full of great guys, the admins are laid back. It an adult server, no banning for foul language, or smack talk. Just racist and hate speak or the smack talk gets out of hand and disrupts the server. Cant say in the last month ive been playing there, i have ever seen a hacker.
