So me and a friend of mine are extremely good at this game, and the WBKS admins keep banning us for "suspected cheating". I'm wondering if they can trace our IP addresses?

Its not the ip address, its the unique origin id. so it doesn't matter if you change your name a million times, your account still has the same id in the background, and it is this that the various software uses to control bans

admin can ban using your IP address to ban, same as they can ban your Gamer Tag or unique EA ID..
Just playing on PS4 with this account.

An admin has 4 ways to ban you:
- The nickname
- Your EA GUID
- Your Punkbuster GUID
- Your IP adress

1st method is very unsecure since you can change your nick at every point.
2nd and 3rd method will force you to search another server or purchase the game again on a new account.
4th method is a problem if you got a static IP adress. If you have one, you won't be able to join the server at any point in time. Otherwise you can join it again after a router restart, which often changes your IP adress.

Furthermore, an admin can of course ban you using two, three or all methods decribed above.

Hope I helped.

Yeah, totally agree with you. Just another life loser try to feel better inside the game with some illegal help.
