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"?   :)

I am crossing my fingers in the hope that people take their second chance seriously.

They don't deserve a second chance.

Being banned by accident without doing anything illigal , has nothing to do with second chances...

All these cheaters / fishy players claiming their accounts got hacked. The desperation and damage control is real.. smh. Your parents failed in a lesson of morals. 

 

I think this is a terrible mistake, cheaters do not deserve a second chance. This is a slap in the face to all legit and loyal customers who have played this game since day 1 playing legit and clean.

I'm saying , Some ( not all ) got banned unfairly , and have the right to claim their accounts back , besides i would love to see how some of you 'ppl' will react if the ban wave took you aswell...

No one was banned unfairly, no matter how much they whine and moan.  Half the people that blame me, I have no idea who they even are :)

I'm not here to go on a debate with anyone on the forum , or anywhere else , i respect this game as much as the staff running it , i've been around this game for a very long time , i had a reason to defend my point and i won't stand down from it.

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.

hey what i was banned when?????

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.

Bull%$# do you know how many smart mofo's there are out there who can code and out code Gamersfirst, why do you think there are so many closets in the game. Now think all the high\max rank clostets that slipped up and got caught could very well learn from their mistake and not make the same mistake again, and i aint talking about playing legit this time. Simple fact the ToS states if you cheat you're outta here but you can reroll, now its if you cheat you get a second chance via a warning shot. Now i know this isnt whats going on with this right now concerning the PB bans but still once a cheat always a cheat right so why give them any chances no matter what or who banned them. Unless its a 100% false positive you get banned you should stay banned no matter what...

Well, with all respect, you are wrong. My old account was banned for no reason (around a year ago), and no matter what you say, I KNOW that I have never cheated, hacked, scammed or done anything wrong. I dont even know if that is ban, but all I have is "Status: Blocked". I was not even in game when that happened. I have payed a lot of money, and im still playing on new account, and still paying for new items. If that is how you say "thank you" to someone who is donating to this comunity, then all I have to say is you are welcome.
And after all, all Im asking for is explanation, a real reason? Since that account is not on FF ban list, and since i didnt get any emails from PB. It all looks like an admin blocked my account just because he wanted to.
 
If you are willing to check that account, here is the email (samozaapbreloaded@gmail.com) 
And say here in public how I was cheating so we can all laugh together.
 
I love this game and i dont play anything else. I will stop playing only when you stop hosting the servers.
 
Regards!

I have been through the same thing you are. Trust me when I say there is no avail to posting on these forums. The chances of anything happening in your favor are slim to none unless Tiggs decides to reverse all PB bans. Contacting Even Balance, support nor posting about it on these forums will help your case. Take it from someone who has tried for nearly 3 years.

 

Just do yourself a favor and move on. The sooner you forget about, the better off you will be in the long run.

Too easy for people to say they didn't cheat and were falsely banned.  Saving face is human nature.  However, it's not in the company's best interest to ban legits.  That alone is logical enough for me to believe they do not ban people falsely and leave them banned falsely.  They have reversed false bans in the past for various things that made sense.  They've even granted amnesty opportunities as well.  They've also reversed occasional bans on people that were obviously cheating like some fish dog thing.  They will admit when they ban falsely.  If you are still banned you likely deserved the ban.  That's good enough for me.

 

As it were, tired of every cheater saying they're falsely banned.

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

No one was banned unfairly, no matter how much they whine and moan.

Aren't those 2 statements contradictory?

 

 

This argument is getting old...

 

The discussion on false bans is going nowhere because of lack of relevant evidence.

The lack of evidence comes from support's policy to never collaborate with banned players (unless there is a massive uproar).

Players have to replicate the conditions of their bans (something, as we've seen recently, isn't totally dependent on client-side conditions).

 

 

If you can't find that needle in the haystack that got you banned, it ends up being a war of authority, of who's the most believable.

 

Players who genuinely believe to be falsely banned never got to know the exact ban reason. They only know they never used cheat software.

They cannot publicly confirm or infirm if their ban was an error.

 

An anti-cheat company will never acknowledge their software to be inaccurate (especially when the game is using a dated version of that software)

Also, a game company will never publicly declare an anti-cheat software from another company inaccurate.

 

 

However, as individuals and community, many times, we've witnessed PB to be inaccurate.

And we've witnessed for a long time how it's inefficient at keeping the game free of cheaters.

 

 

So yeah people, suck it up, you won't get an apology, even if you did not cheat.

Personally, I'm really grateful Tiggs is disguising this PB ban reversion as a "Second chance".

This is the best solution for everyone.

 

Let's just ditch PunkBuster and put this behind us.

The sooner the better.

Sorry for both of your accounts, and the hard time feeling the frustration of losing the account unfairly.

 

What eps says seems to be true, almost 2 years later and I get the same auto-reply, no one bothers to know if they did something wrong or not, although sadly, I heard stories of the opposite of this, a scammer admitting to G1 and being given a second chance..

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.


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


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).



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.


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 ...





One of my friends that is now unbanned (thanks for it) did't play the game in last month exception for 2 match in asylum and got PB ban. He did't make new accounts full of bullshoot, he did't do anything wrong but you still "caught him cheating". How can it be possible? What did you caught?
Thanks for answers anyway, remember that i don't have anything against you and the stuff, i am just looking for answers, clarity, and fairness, i don't want to foster polemics

@fairfight there are some cases of some of citadel top players that should be analyzed deeper. If you are sure they cheats they need to know the reson that brought you to this conclusion at least.
I am not talking about people that just cheated on a secondary account or did bullshoot just once, but people that has for unique guilty to be good players

Hello. the punkbuster has banned me for no reason on September 23. I still have not received the email and my account is still blocked. I have to wait, or they forgot about me? ty
Medez

I can vouch also for this guy. He can't be accused of cheating since he and his mates have always been very hostile against cheaters and cheats, it's unthinkable for me he is in a cheater list.


Always open for dialogs

  The forums won't be able to help you with this. We're not catering to cheaters and we don't want harassment in the game. You had multiple warnings and suspensions for harassment, don't try to make this as a one off event, because it was far from that. You attacked players and GMs, and now the account is closed permanently. 

 

Reroll and behave or goodbye

There are a lot of players who were lost due to Punkbuster bans. Would be interesting to see the results of such a decision.

So far 4 of the accounts given a 2nd chance messed up and were banned by Fair fight.  Not too upsetting since I really thought we'd have a much higher number today. I guess that some players do appreciate a second chance.

No offence tiggs but FF is still taking forever to ban these hackers and it only catches the blatent hackers. If these ppl who got 2nd chances r closeting they wont get banned cause they are keping just below the radar. They are still ruining the game for everyone but only just enough to not get caught.

I'd say just give EVERYONE a second chance, including those who violated other parts of the ToS. Have a friend who still has no idea what they did to get banned (generic ToS auto reply), but still loves the game. They want to spend money on the game (they've spent a good $1k on their old account), but don't due to the fear of getting randomly banned again.

 

I'm sure many will get banned a second time, but most would continue to play like normal after a while.
