also tiggs, I know you've been speaking of unbanning everyone a few month ago and yes, it was just a thought of you, but you know it can happen and you also know it's not as bad of an idea. sure, some people will cry when cheaters get unbanned (they won't see the positive effects of it and won't care about the falsely banned ones), but these people are ignorant anyways so F them :)

Why not only unban those who spent money in the game?
And btw I wasn't pb banned, but it still fell under it. But still thank you tiggsy ^^

We're monitoring to see how the release of the last 30 days works. If all goes well, you never know what's possible :)

Back to 2013, my account was hacked - any chances of recieving it after 3 years?

I'm bad 24/7.

This is a good news for people that got banned without a reson by PB :)

Where did you get that tin foil hat, give me it!

Yes, they were cheating. We removed the bans from everyone that was hit on Saturday wrongly by PB. There were 4 people that were also hit by a mistake with FF and those were reversed. The people that were given a second chance today, were cheating and were banned for it. We're giving them a second chance and it may open up to all PB banned accounts in the future. I've posted a few times that I am not a fan of PB, "why can't you comprehend this"? :)

So fairfight did 4 mistakes last week; what do make you sure these cases are 5 or 10 instead of 4?
This is still making me perplexed.

Because I have faith in Fair Fight that I don't have in PB :)

 

 

that could bakcfire in APB :P

 

But its good that you act against cheaters and also good that someone properly cares to look into possible false bans, because in the past it seemed it was just covered when false positives happened unless a huge uproar began.

And with FF there is still a good chance that unbanning these people gets them banned quickly again should they really cheat. So unbans may be less problematic tthan with the old PB only protection.

they tweaked values for FF, so its mostlikely that they investigated what happened on saturday. At least we get some nice more trasnparency about the stuff happening.

Yes, I am asking about trasnparecy since 2014, i am happy about it but we need something more; there are people banned by FF (maybe 0.3% of banned people) that has no guilt but are still treat like criminals by support and by community. I think also these people needs fairness and justice.

I've just looked through fairfight ban comments and I've seen that many people got banned because someone had an access to their accounts. But what about dogfish? Why his account had the same story, but got unbanned later?

@Tiggs, Dont you think that all the latest max ranks being banned seems a little bit wierd? Even those who were sitting in social and doing nothing got FairFighted, It seems like you have some kind of flaw in your Semi automated process or either you are flagging some background running processes as a cheating program and banning for that, HWmonitor for example.

don't be unreasonable, with FF in place this a very intelligent move. Heck I would even give amnesty to FF'd people (sure Goat,Film etc are excluded but those accounts are "disposables" for them anyway) in order to "save" the population. I very much agree with LilyV3, if they continue to breach the ToS by 3rd-partying they'll get FFd anyway.

Pretty sure the bigger part of all those bans is rerolls, aka the same people + you shouldnt unban people that cheated to save to population. Thats like ducttaping a leaking ship anyway and wont prevent it from sinking in the least.

<thinfoilhatarea>
And those max rank bans that everyone is talking about, that probably didnt cheat on their mains where smurfing on reroll accounts and got banned in this way </thinfoilhatarea>

Hey Tiggs.

 

its nice to see you guys doing more to stop the cheaters..

 

I'm a CBT Vet for both RTW and G1 my main account was ban do to cheats, but I never used the cheat on my main just on a alt account...

and only after years of playing legit yes I used a hack and yes I messed up and you guys ban all my accounts about a year ago in one hit...even

my main that I never used the hack on if you look at it and the 3 max ranks on it you can see that a silver with 13k kills on ea. vs most max ranks with well over 20k kills on theres lol...

 

I have ban playing for the last year on my new account legit xMissCrazyx and xCrazyx..

I still love this game and always will and I know I messed up by trying the hack..

if your going to be giving people a 2nd chance I would love to be one and show that I'm a Vet of APB with my title again..

thanks for all the fun years of APB...

I hate to say it but I hope you don't get anything back. You forfeit your chance to have exclusive items when you thought it was a good idea to ruin other peoples experiences on the game by cheating. The cost of harming both Gamersfirst and other players is your account.

 

The only reason Tiggs is even doing what she is now is because of how wonky Punkbuster has been recently. I'm betting you don't fall under that umbrella given the nature of your post. She isn't giving every cheater who asks a free get out of jail card far as I can tell. Quite frankly I don't think she should do that.

Good riddance PB. One pain in the patootie less tbh. These days even public cheats can avoid PB. As for unbanning peeps, I'd say it's a good move overall (IMO). Gives a hope for those false-positives over the years (rip fallen ones). As for FF bans - they are too contravesial so I won't touch on them without my tinfoilhat.

No, this isn't true. One day we had an issue with PB, we reversed those bans and shut it down. Please don't start rumors. 

 

Population dropped so low they need cheaters to keep playing too.. Amazing x)

 

No, scroll back and read my comments.  I guess you received a free tin foil hat too! 

 

PB even ban 1 person for the last 30 days?i doubt..btw look what this guy hackingjohn is doin on FF ban list..modafka dont give up :D

PB has banned many people in the past 30 days and that's not counting the PB mental breakdown last weekend (those don't count). 

 

 

@Tiggs, Dont you think that all the latest max ranks being banned seems a little bit wierd? Even those who were sitting in social and doing nothing got FairFighted, It seems like you have some kind of flaw in your Semi automated process or either you are flagging some background running processes as a cheating program and banning for that, HWmonitor for example. 

 

No, I don't think it's weird  at all. They've finally been caught, I'm sad that it wasn't sooner :)   There is no flaw, we had one mistake that caught 4 players and now everyone is saying screaming the sky is falling. It's not and those FF bans were legit. 

 

People that got banned for no reson by PB are now unbanned; in their email instead of read "apologies about the inconvenience" they have a " you cheated but we give u a second chance". This is really weird

 

No, you see they weren't banned for no reason. They cheated and were caught. Why would I apologize for something they did?  That's why there is no apology in that email. It's a second chance to prove themselves, it's up to them now on if they retain their account or lose it.  Sadly there are some already that have lost their accounts even with a 2nd chance. They think creating a new character and cheating on it will hide it from us. We know who you guys are!

You should read the op ... 

 

 

 

  • If your account was multiple banned which means by Punk buster and Fair fight, or for another TOS violation and Punk buster, your account will not be unbanned. 
  • Do not contact support to be unbanned, this will be completed over the next hour and an email will be sent to your account. 
  • Only those that receive an email are being released. Email can take up to a hour to go out, be patient and again do not contact support or we'll not allow you this chance.

This is really sending the wrong message.... I don't understand how or why anyone would think otherwise.

In your own post you are saying they did get banned for CHEATING, yet still unbanning them and letting them back in? And in your own post still you are hinting at a possible amnesty for all the banned players from even before last 30 days. Why not just fully endorse cheating at this point because that's basically what you're doing. Literally going against your very own EULA.

 

 

Is that playerbase really that low so you have to start unbanning cheaters?

 

Meh.

 

I guess it really is that low now...lol

 

 

Who tf is using cheats so outdated that they get caught by PB

I hope you'll not bring back scammer's accounts back, they deserve their bans. I know a few max rank scammers who are banned, their fault that they are greedy and aren't fair enough to complete the deal.
Just my few cents [:
Edit: didn't seen your post Tiggs about TOS violation and that accs won't be back (: thank you.
Edit2:

How about we scam people 1 year ago. Do we get our account back or unbanned?

You know, for ppl w/o premium get a legendary is really hard and took much effort, even few months. That's your fault you wasn't fair and you was greedy enough to just stole the weapon. Also support only offer 1 time help service about that issue while in other games it's unlimited and support trying do their best to apologise not like APB do, you got banned because of scams and most likely scammed person just lost his weapon forever unless he had a proof. It should be fixed.
Imo scammers shouldn't get second chance, or if they do then delete / give back to the scammed person his legendary weapons.
