Welcome

Welcome to PBBans, the PunkBuster multi-stream and live banning pioneers. We offer server admins the ability to stream to multiple anti-cheat sites by using the revolutionary PBBans Hub, which features live banning, live banlist updates, live ban removals and much more.

Setting up your server(s) to stream to PBBans is extremely easy and usually only takes 15 minutes or less from the time you apply until your server is streaming! We highly encourage you to start streaming today as the more servers that stream, the harder it will be for cheaters to find servers they can join. To get started streaming to PBBans simply follow our Beginners Guide. We also offer some other additional guides in our Information Center. Let us know if you can't find what you are looking for as we at PBBans are always looking for ways to improve our services.

PBBans also partners up with competitive leagues to fulfill their anti-cheat needs. For these, PBBans has developed a whole set of dedicated tools, enabling league administrators to unify the server configurations for their players, keep their own league-specific banlist up to date and more, with the least invasive set up for contesting clans. If your league is interested in a partnership with PBBans, contact one of our Staff and we will be glad to assist you.

If you need assistance in streaming or just want to chat with us, join our IRC channel (irc.quakenet.org #pbbans or irc.us.gamesurge.net #pbbans) Click Here or post your questions/concerns in our forums.

For more information on what we do read the About Us page.

PBBans Funding

For the past 13 years PBBans has been completely independent and we have been free to choose our hosting providers because of the donations from our generous community. However, over the past 6 months the monthly donations have not been enough to cover our hosting costs even with the reduction of the amount required. The additional funds have been coming from the months we exceeded our monthly goal which is now running out.

Over the years we explored many options to help fund PBBans but our primary goal is to keep our services online and ad free without requiring any fees to use if possible. Using advertisements on the website was an option and we did try Goggle ads for guest users but they didn’t work out in the end.

We have had numerous offers from game server providers to host us on hardware they own or rent and we greatly appreciated the offers. We prefer the ability to choose our own hosting solutions and didn’t want to run into the scenario of the GSP no longer wishing to sponsor us and we would be forced to move.

Finally, the number of streaming servers has dropped considerably over the last 8 years and the number of active community members with it. With more new games not using Punk Buster it has reduced the community overall.

If you use our services, please consider donating if you haven’t already done so. To those that have and continue to donate we thank you. Your contributions help keep our community alive.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

holidays_2015.png

We wish to take this time to thank everyone that help keep PBBans online for the past 13 years. From our donors, streaming admins and other supporters, we would not be here without you.

We welcomed a few new staff members this year that included -Slayer- and DHGreeny. Sabret received a promotion to Operations Staff as well.

Please be reminded that we count on the donations that our users give to keep our services online and free. Over the past few months we have not been meeting our donation goals so please donate if you are able to do so.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all the staff here at PBBans. May your holiday season be filled with joy and happiness. We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016 where we mark our tenth anniversary of launching the PBBansHub, the first live banning system using PBUCON.

PunkBuster coming to H-Hour: World's Elite

eb_hhr.png

 

The studio is proud to announce the integration of a highly respected anti-cheat into H-Hour to supplement the protection provided by VAC. PunkBuster™ is the original Anti-Cheat system for online multiplayer games. In the past only AAA games were able to use these tools in the daily battle against cheats but we reached out and arranged to bring you the best tool we could find.

 

Evenbalance's goal in creating this software is to keep the playing field as even as possible so that PunkBuster-enabled games are played the way they were meant to be played. For more information on Punkbuster, you can visit their site here:

Happy Holidays 2014

holidays_2014.png

 

As 2014 comes to an end, we would like to take this time to say thank you to all of our streamers, donors and supporters for your continued support.

 

This year brought us another server move to help combat the numerous DDoS attacks we have been receiving. However it made PBBans even better because of the new hardware, new software and connectivity. Plus it lowered our monthly costs as well. Also remember to update your UCON profiles if your server isn't streaming.

 

Happy Holidays from all of us at PBBans. As always have a safe and cheat free holiday season. We look forward to seeing you in the new year.

Viol 81568 Bans Removed (BF4)

We have lifted all 81568 bans in BF4 for the time being.

 

Even Balance has not yet confirmed if it is a false positive but we decided to lift the bans as it can take EB a few days to confirm if a violation number can be triggered by non-cheat software.

 

We can easily restore the bans should EB confirm they are valid so we have lifted them to prevent possible innocent players from being able to play. This also gives EB more time to investigate.

 

1,543 Battlefield 4 Bans have been removed from the MBi.
546 Unofficial Battlefield 4 Bans have been removed also.
