"Game disconnected: you were kicked by PunkBuster. Stated reason: PunkBuster kicked player 'Firesavage' (for 0 minutes) ... RESTRICTION: Service Communication Failure: PnkBstrA.exe"
what is the solution? Is it the Windows 10 "upgrade"?
Same thing after upgrading to Windows 10....
EA should really fix this. Oh wait, it's EA. Yea, R.I.P BF3. No way EA is wasting money on an old game, ffs..

WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS!
and Call mehmike...thanks did all the reinstall, spent three hours on it. and other attempted fixes.
Remember I'm just a user...my responsibility is to pay and play. Theirs is to take my money, provide game and support. I have done more than my share.
This is not on me... These people don't even respond to their own forums requesting help.
Glad it worked for you...enjoy.
The amount of people having these issues is minimal compared to the amount of people who have no issues. 99.9% of the problems are on the user's side with their PC/Network or software.
same issue here as well. not getting battlefront cause of this crap now
I have the same problem. I have had this problem since I bought this game the month it came out on windows 7. Now I am on windows 8.1 fresh isntall and STILL have this problem. I have reinstalled and updated the game and punkbuster. Turned off all firewalls and it still wont work. Some times it works and sometimes it doest. WHat the heck this is a major game breaking problem that everyone has EA needs to fix it!!!!! I paid over $60 for this game and have never been able to play it. This is after getting like 5 other errors and fixing them.
The web UI is garbage. I miss battlefield 2.
Hey I updated reinstalled PB then updated and there was still the problem. So hey moderator so what if these people are saying the same issue at least they are getting on the forums no need to be a dick. I am really pissed I pay 60 bucks for BF4 and another 50 for all DLC only to find out my game doesn't work, you can start yelling at customers when your shitty product works.
So what's wrong with PB?
I got the same message as well...
I also reinstalled it this morning, but still can't play this game!!

If origin keep's this problem after problem crap going ill never buy another game from them again. Im no longer looking forward to Battlefield 5 because of all the problems ive had with Battlefield 4 and Hardline stinks. Ill stick to Steam so far ive never had a problem with Steam. Origins this could be a good bye because if i cant have some good games before Battlefield 5 is released without more problems ill delete Origins and ill never install it again. Origins sucks bigtime everyone hates it.
