We are aware that some Battlefield 3 players are experiencing connection issues with PunkBuster enabled servers.

This problem is limited to a small subset of players on PC and will not impact players on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360.

We are actively looking into the specifics of this issue and we are confident that we will have a permanent solution in place shortly.

In the meantime, if your connectivity has been affected, we recommend that in the interim you join servers that are not running PunkBuster. There is a filter setting for this in the multiplayer server browser.

Thank you for your patience.

wtf?!?!?!?!so how long it goner tayk it????????

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
So the software that is supposed to protect us from cheaters is broken, and so you're solution is for us to go play on servers full of cheaters. Awesome. It's crap like this that makes me wish you could return software for refunds, but since lobbyists own the legislature and our laws have not kept up with the industry. We're stuck with whatever crap the companies decide to release to us, knowing full well they have our money once we make a purchase and there's nothing we can do about it when the product turns out to be crap. Only in the software industry! Imagine buying a new car from Ford and they tell you, hey sorry, we had to make the release date so we'll sell you the car, but it's not going to have brakes, power steering or seat belts just yet, but we'll be sure to get those to you in an update within the next 6 to 12 months.
FFS.....
Jesus man, One thing after the other, and the other, and the other, Oh, and the other
ya gg dice lets recommend that we all forget about being protected and just go play with the hackers because u have no solution for them anyway. they join the protected servers anytime they want and u cant stop them. so is this 1 way of saying if u cant beat them join them????
That really helps my ps3 connection issues and server access issues doesn't it cheers
I UNDERSTAND THAT PC IS WAS MORE POWERFUL THAN CONSOLE GAMING, BUT WHY WOULD YOU GIVE THE LEAST POPULATED GAMING PLATFORM BE THE ONLY SYSTEMS WITH 1080 GAMEPLAY GRAPHIC? THAT REALLY DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE, I UNDERSTAND THE MAPS ARE HUGE, AND THE CONSOLE MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT, BUT STILL, MAYBE WE COULD'VE SACRIFICED SOME OF THE DESERT LAND TO ACCOMMODATE THE CONSOLE GAMERS GRAPHICAL DESIRES! don't get me wrong the game is still the best military/multiplayer game I've ever played, but still, gimme my 1080!
hahahaha...thet wos the god wone .... xD
it does work only not much servers without pb running and ofcourse the chance that you are playing with hackers and cheaters which is a downside...hope the prob will be fixed soon so i can play on normal servers again :S
i hope you ll solve it soon :/
about time
"This problem is limited to a small subset of players" That's not very true...
@rtm00se I have no anti-virus and still have the problem. I also tried every possible solution that was offered online...
so when can wy play?????
Damn why am i always in these problems. i played 1 month no bf beacause of all the problems and bugs, now i've played 2 days and i am back in to one. argh!
While cheaters roam freely in all servers ruining our game, you update Punkbuster and ruin the game of legit players in order to find out that PB doesn't do shit! To hell with punkbuster, when nobody cares about stopping cheating!
Let's hope EA can live up to their expectations; they generally patch things pretty fast... But we'll see.
evenballance.com download pb setup, then install it , done
my brother got those problems, please solve them
Or switch to xbox... people are too lazy to hack on xbox, and being caught hacking leads to a permanent account ban, unlike PC where its easy to get around an IP ban. Gamed for 6 years on PC then switched to Xbox, zero complaints. No punkbuster, rarely any hackers. I just wish there was a mouse and keyboard for xbox, but having pressure triggers is VERY nice. Btw dumb asses, YOU are responsible for the product YOU bought. Dice didn't make you buy bf3 so how bout you shut the fuck up and play the game or stop playing, I'm sure the community won't miss you at all. Cry baby bitches.
