EA/Punkbuster Scandal. why you should think twice before buying Multiplayer games from them

Found this on REDDIT and going to steal a bit of it to help spread the word.. PUNKBUSTER are scumbags, CRIMINALS stealing games and EA let them.

Here’s the quote, links within the quote have been removed and redirected to the original post.. please see the link to the original post for them.

My original post on Truegaming that has gone really well with alot of feedback has been deleted for some reason… http://i.imgur.com/zqQXENT.png

Last month Punkbuster did a ban-wave (GAMEHACK) #81570, there was a lot of complaints on Battlelog quickly locked and deleted by moderators but I didn’t care that much back then, I wasn’t one of them… until the 11-nov-2014, when I tried to connect to my favorite server and found out that I was banned ! http://i.imgur.com/Gngmxku.jpg. [i.imgur.com] oh man I almost lost it, I rushed to Pbbans a third party anti-cheat sites to find out that there was more than 500 account banned that day,

I reached to EA help to know what’s going on but they just keep saying that they can’t do anything, that I need to check with EvenBalance the makers of Punkbuster the anti-cheat system that banned us And oh my, here begins one of the most hilarious and ridiculous support services I’ve ever seen. in that outdated website http://evenbalance.com/[evenbalance.com] you have the possibility to appeal your ban, but no matter what you say or do, you are gonna get the same automatic reply everyone gets from a bot named Alex j http://imgur.com/N0zJYuc [imgur.com]

So i started looking for some place where I can express myself without fear of being censored or banned, I did a quick research and found 2 topics on /r/battlefield3 From here people start gathering and working together trying to find out what the hell is going on, we quickly realized that Evenbalance aren’t gonna admit they made a mistake, it’s just like 600 people concerned this time no big deal… yeah you heard me! cause Evenbalance made a lot of mistakes in the past not so long ago (six months) they admitted there was an error after a massive ban of +1000 players June 2014 confirmed false positive #81567 June 2014 confirmed false positive #81568 1000+ affected Dec 2013 confirmed false positive #81518

Our last hope was some DICE employees who are active on Reddit, @Tiggr was one of them, we reached to him in twitter and he did his best to help but no results, I think Evenbalance doesn’t want to hear anything this time… Some of the Twitter discussion http://imgur.com/NsXFHUJ [imgur.com] Now that DICE tried to help we tried to reach Evenbalance again and I sent them this message http://imgur.com/Q4JohRz, [imgur.com] now they seem a little bit more cooperative but how are we supposed to know such things ? are they expecting us to do their job ?

after that a new reddit user “gamehackgate” posted some signatures that may have triggered the bans, some of us did find a match but we don’t know if it’s legit, we did send the results to Evenbalance but we didn’t hear back from them… The bans may have caught some cheaters but a lot of legit players are banned too, I myself have more than 1000 hours in both BF3 and BF4, I am a member of Reddit since a year now and my first message was on the Battlefield 4 Subreddit, but this commitment will end if the bans are not lifted, no more Battlefield for me or any game with Punkbuster in it Please help us spread the word, the way we are treated is wrong and this need to stop!
