Have you been banned in the past for cheating from Punk buster?  We have some good news for you, we're going to most of the Punk buster bans that happened from January 1, 2011 to today.  Now it's up to you to prove you can play without an unfair advantage over other players.  We hope that you've learned your lesson, and look forward to seeing you in game. 

 

Note: 

  • 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 all kinds of unexpected.

 

They better not be foolish about this and squander a free second chance. Something that generally doesn't exist in the gaming world.

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

Damn, interesting move.

 

I mean, I don't think it will really hurt anything TBH, and there have been some weird bans, so why not?

Amnesty for cheaters? Well. You take responsibility for it G1 though.

Although I think it's right move taking how recent bans were... fishy themselves.

APBs pretty forgiving.

 

Honestly, this is more for regaining those naive new players who saw the advertisement for that free downloadable cheat.

jk pb wasnt the ones to ban those people

They already gave a second chance. If they unbanned those people 3 years ago, this would be their third chance.

Actually despite it being a really controversial move I think that it's somewhat a right step, heck I am pretty sure alot of people will have realized and we will eventually see a more active playerbase. I mean honestly, if they cheat again they'll get hammered by FF anyway :P

Why? I mean personally I hate the idea of unbanning cheaters... But if you are only unbanning cheaters in the past month (punkbuster bans only)... then why not previous months? How is that fair?

 

Edit: Well people should just be grateful that they are even getting a second chance at all...

i disagree with previous cheaters getting unbanned however i understand with the quicker to action fairfight, they will just get banned again if they use their old "tricks" which could sting more to lose the same main/high rank account twice but i dont feel as though they should be rewarded with all their armas/unlocked items as well as high rank characters because they have already attempted to "drown" this game with negativity while others have played clean the entire time... my 0.02

So... All those accounts that logged in when PB was going haywire were cheaters?

No, they weren't.

This is simply to fix an error from a PB update instead of just going, 'Contact EvenBalance.'

Will a cheater be unbanned? Maybe one or two. But they'll still cheat and still get banned.

But people like SupahFuzzy and Foe (and another uncounted but easily 30+) who aren't cheaters and were wrongly banned are reinstated.

Seriously.... Why can't people comprehend this?

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"?  :)

Wish could like this , I never cared nor liked PB myself from experience of working with game companies in past it was by far one the last companies/programs we thought of using due to the many issues it  can cause and it itself being out of today's times

Thank you.

 

I agree you should get rid of that obsolete software. It's killing FPS for people with low performance CPU, and, compared to FairFight, you get alot of cases of false positives.

Isolated cases or not, makes no difference.

 

Beside, the supported version of PB on APB is... 0.993

When was the last actual collaboration between APB and Evenbalance?

APB doesn't even appear in their supported game list? http://www.evenbalance.com/games.php

 

If I had to compare PunkBuster and Gamersfirst support service after ban, I'd say Gamersfirst is actually better.

Punkbuster only gives you a single automated reply.

 

Suggested many avenues on what could have triggered the ban and tried to replicate it. They never went further than the autoreply.

Spoiler

 

I'll say it again,

Thank you.

That's nice of you. It does seem like it's an easier way to just press the rollback button and have everyone cleared, so you don't have to spend time sorting out the cheaters and the ones that got unfairly banned.

 

Not gonna give others a second chance? No tinfoil, just curious.

what about false-positives that happened over all the time APB existed?

IMO, it would be nice to see punkbuster deleted and FF tweaked to work really good. after that happened, everyone should get unbanned for the sake of falsely-banned people, and to give other people that really cheated a second chance. if they cheat again with their old account, FF will get them. (unbanned accounts can be put to priority for FF I guess). and if they don't cheat again and continue playing the game, it's just another few more players for the community and also potential cash, which keeps the game alive.

ofc, some people will cheat again even if they get a second chance, but I think the falsepositives and the people that regret cheating overweight the scumbags and therefore this idea should really be considered.

just for the record, I hate cheaters. I'm not trying to defend cheating, it's disgusting.

Too bad I can't like your post, but yeah, the ones getting unbanned ARE cheaters. 

 

The Saturday incident is a whole separate incident.

taking the piss much , they cheated but hey have another chance , reallllllyyyyyyyyyyyyy ,

its like saying hey you cheated here it dont matter have your account back and use another for cheating , realllllyyyy , they not gonna learn anything when you give the stuff back they lost , playing this game much longer myself i dont think so when they let cheaters back in with their main accounts that was banned for cheating whats the point in having cheat protection when you just give them back after their banned , just turn the anti cheat software off , no point in having it

I get it, you're pissed because they've been taking advantage of us that follow the rules for too long. However, some people can change for the better when given the opportunity. I'm sure most will start cheating again, but a few will probably have learned their lesson.

Have you been banned in the last 30 days for cheating from Punk buster?  We have some good news for you, we're going to remove all Punk buster bans that happened from September 1st 2016 to today.  Now it's up to you to prove you can play without an unfair advantage over other players.  We hope that you've learned your lesson, and look forward to seeing you in game. 

 

Note: 

  • 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. 

 

Thanks tiggs you are awesome!!!

i mean if u got pb banned chances are youre a dumb kid who got slammed for dling a free cheat and now you're slapping yourself over a stupid decision

 

those people might actually not cheat again. and if they do, they'll just get re-banned. giving people second chances in a game like this is valid as long as the measures to re-ban them if they're just like "lmao this saves me a reroll" are solid.

so FF banned a few people falsely in the past banwave and G1 admitted it, but won't face the fact that there have been false positives all along since FF release? (especially in the first few days after release where it was going nuts, and way too triggerhappy)

I'd love to see the reaction of G1 when they'd actually investigate my case that happened over 2 years ago and find out I wasn't cheating at all.

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 :)
