At this moment, we are allowing anyone that was banned for the mass ban aimbot that happened to a lot of our non members, some members and admins to play on our servers if they wanna get another key. We are waiting to hear word from PB on what happened, why all the bans and how to proceed. There were a shit load of these bans issued to players all across COD4 not just our servers but all servers. My thought is there was some kinda addition to the hack detect program that fucked up and seen something on the players computer that triggered an aimbot detection. This is only my gut feeling and the SR team is still in discussions about this and we will update everyone to how we are gonna proceed in the future with these bans once we know. For now they are allowed to play.

Rugger  i know you said the Seniors are having discussions over this but if people are going to go to the expense of buying a new game/CD key what will be result if Evenbalance/PB  do not back down over this, are we going to ban people we are now telling to go get new CD/Game?.....already asked this in the admin section but as it is out there for everyone now.

That's a class action lawsuit against PunkBuster just waiting to happen.  If the only way to play again is buy the game all over, then PB needs to pony up that cost.  Their screw up, their clean up.  Pretty simple, really.

I was not aware that the PBBans topic on this matter was unavailable to all but here is the latest update from a PBBans staff member. 

 

Let me assure you, and everyone else who is interested, that the issue has been looked at by EB staff, and is being double/triple checked as I type .. it really is a case of wait and see. As soon as we have an update we will post up.

 

I hope this puts some of your minds at ease that they are not ignoring this situation. Please be patient whilst we await more information. 

 

duc.

At this point, all I can say is 'Enter at your own risk'. We have no control over Punkbuster, as far as what it bans for. If you go into a PB enabled server at this point, you are risking being '50710' banned. Even those who are buying new CD keys are taking the risk of losing the new key as well.  As far as risk goes, it seems to be pretty slim. Out of well above 13 million units sold up to 2009 (that is across all platforms and the latest stats I can find.. you know it's way above that by now), and only a few 100 or so bans in this recent rash, so far, it's not very likely that it will happen to you. BUT, tell that to the poor bastards on here that have gotten banned. 

 

I am truly sorry this is happening. I sincerely hope that Evenbalance will clear this up quickly.

Thanks Bama, I uninstalled COD4 Yesterday from my ssd drive and was going to put it on my terrabyte drive, but i think i will hold off for now... is this problem only affecting cod4 players or is it across all our servers that have PB enabled?  Cause I got to get my cod 5 reinstalled as I also had to remove it from my SSD drive and move it to my Terrabyte drive to make room for BF3 update.  I play BF3 and it had that dreaded TS3 overlay... that some are saying can be picked up as a hack by PB... anyone else have any other info on this?

Hey >XI<, so I've heard a lot more on this recently. It "seems" (emphasis on seems, only because this is what I've heard) that this is caused by running razer drivers that (at least used to, though not sure if currently) undetectable <removed>, so they're banning for running razer drivers. So I'd say that if you do have razer gear, disable all drivers until they get this problem fixed. We've had one of our members banned through this as well in addition to some of our public players and many people across many servers. We also have a discussion here (though let me know if it's not ok to link to our clan's forums) from some of our members who are much more knowledgeable about this than I am (I'm also not sure how long that link will be up since we're moving websites in the next few weeks).

I think you're onto something Cobra. I know that over the last week, all 4 of my PC's have had Java, Adobe, and automatice Windows security updates. Perhaps a poll is in order for the COD4 players to see what operating systems those people who have been banned are using, and ask if they're had updates over the last week. It might be some good info to show PB if we can see a pattern.
