Cheating and hacking, fix the damn cheating. Right now that should be priority number one. The punkbuster-coders are obviously incompetent!

Hi there,

Unfortunately there appears to be a rather serious bug with R18. For the now, the update has been pulled pending a fix. Most likely R19 will be released with a similar change log over the next day or two.

kind regards beta tester!

No you are incompetent to think that cheating can be fixed.

It amuses me that people think that complaining and asking for features here will solve anything seeing how EA/DICE have ignored the thousands of other complains and requests on the forum.

I'd rather see the game bugs fixed rather than working on how to ban cheaters completely. Thats what server admin are for? are they not...?

Is it really you must be correct cos when i bought the game all i ever wanted todo was sit and watch people bitching and cussing at players and tryin to resolve cry babys arguments while lookin at procon hud all night long! This is what im supposed to be doing instead of actually playing something i actualy payed for!

Punkbuster has always been easy pickings for AA. I dont know why PB is still around to be honest... over 6,000 users buying aimbots and such and around 3800 bans, and still nothing stopping them .

Battlefield 3

3,814 bans

thats a joke, now as AA states legit players getting banned. pretty sad. there is a new one every several minutes now. Im sick and tired of it.

Indeed, StartError on server level after applying the patch R18.
Reversed back to R17.

Mankind is so disappointing sometimes. Reading about this BS makes me want to throw my PC out the second story window.

So, since this new update, I haven't been able to connect to a single server. I keep getting this error message:

Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'deltac03r4' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrB.exe driver failure (PnkBstrK.sys) ffab

I've gone through heaps of suggested solutions, tried them all, and none work. This included re-installing Punkbuster, updating it, adding firewall exceptions and so on, so forth.
Is this happening to anyone else and if so, does anyone have a legitimate solution?

Note that this only started happening today: this is the first time I've seen this message in my playing history.

pay for or not you owe it to your players to do your job as an ADDMIN not just kick aka trash talking aka noob cry babys stop wasting your time and do your job,and if you can't do it get some onewho can thats how we do it here.
This is found in an add in some random gamer magazine to why BF3 is using PB and not it's owne anti-cheat?

So is this patch live yet? If so UNDO IT NOW. Its messed up PB and almost no one can play. Infact, can you just roll the game back to how it was on launch? It was near perfect, no lag, no issues, nothing. It just worked as intended.

so what are Dice EA going to do about them.......just like the fake indian call scammers ,the only difference i can see is there ARE people willing to pay. So Dice EA check them out and block them in some way.
