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.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

holidays_2015.png

Here we are at the end of another year. 2020 has not been good for many largely due to the pandemic. Death tolls, shutdowns, job losses, gathering restrictions and more has hit many hard this year.

Sadly HSMagnet passed away this fall. He devoted countless hours helping our community and served as a valued staff member for over 4 years.

To our donors, streaming admins and other supporters, we wish to thank you for all your support to keep PBBans alive.A big thank you to CU – DizzyKipper again this year for going above and beyond every month to keep our community online. Sadly many people have either lost their jobs or have suffered a decrease in income due to the pandemic. We hope others will consider donating in the new year if they are in a position to do so.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at PBBans and we hope 2021 will be a much better year for everyone.

HSMagnet

hsmagnet_sig.png

2020 has been a difficult year for many and sadly it has hit someone in our community. HSMagnet who joined the PBBans community in 2008 suddenly passed away on Sunday.

He devoted countless hours helping keep our community running and served as a valued staff member for over 4 years. He will be dearly missed.

We would like to express our deepest condolences to his family during this time. His family has setup a gofundme page for anyone that wishes to help.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2019

holidays_2015.png

It's that time of year again where 2019 is coming to an end and 2020 will be upon us in a few short weeks.

Not a lot to post about this year in regards to our community. Player counts in Punk Buster enabled games continue to decline but we will be around so long as the demand and funding is there.

A big thank you to CU – DizzyKipper who has given far more in donations every month to keep our community online. Relying on one person to donate far more than they should have to is not something we like to see. We hope others will step up in the new year if they are in a position to do so. We also understand communities are moving to new games too which impacts donations.

To our donors, streaming admins and other supporters, we wish to thank you for all your support to keep PBBans alive over the past year.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at PBBans.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays 2018

holidays_2015.png

Well another year is coming to an end and 2019 is just around the corner.

We came close to shutting down this year but thankfully our host gave us a great deal that cut our operating costs substantially. We also upgraded our forums to the latest version after years of putting it off do to incompatibility issues with the website.

To our donors, streaming admins and other supporters, we wish to thank you for all your support to keep PBBans alive over the past year and previous years. With our lower operation costs, we hope that we don’t have to consider closing anytime soon.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all the staff here at PBBans.

New Forums

pbbans.png

I'm sure you have noticed we have updated our forums. First thing you notice is it moved from www.pbbans.com/forums to community.pbbans.com. The old links should redirect to the new forum as well.

Some info you may need:

1. Login usernames are now your display name or email address.

2. Support Tickets no longer exist. All previous tickets will be moved to a sub forum located at  https://community.pbbans.com/forum/607-private-support/ in the next day or so.

3. The website is converted to use the new forums however do to the vast number of pages there still may be some parts that have been missed. I will be fixing those glitches as they show up.

4. The theme is not 100% complete and is a work in progress but there should be no issues with using the new forums.

The biggest reason to upgrade now is the old forums hit end of life status over a year ago and is open to security risks. They did not work with PHP 7+.
