Why is Punkbuster OFF?

Postby astone7899 » Wed Nov 17, 2010 16:12 UTC

So I go into ARES domination crk server (the one with punk-buster OFF) and there's aim-botters everywhere you look. Of-coarse I then move across to the other ARES total domination server (which has punkbuster ON) and surprise, surprise i see no aimbotters / hackers. Also i didn't get any punk-buster lag after the first minute so the game-play was awesome.

Anyway my question is why isn't punkbuster enabled on all servers?. I don't see any benefits from turning punk-buster off. All you get by turning it off is frustration from an unstoppable group of hackers. Turning punk-buster ON fixes these problems and makes the gaming experience a hell of a lot more enjoyable for everyone.

Thanks
BTW thanks for supplying us with great free servers.

it seems to me like the the people who are having trouble running punk-buster are co-incidentally the same people who are aimbotting on these servers. I have no troubles running punkbuster and im sure 90% of other people don't either.

Anyway, im happy to let all the hackers mindlessly kill themselves on there own server while the non cheaters can play on the punkbuster server and have a hell of a game.

would it be possible to turn player voting ON, thus allowing us to kick or ban the complete obvious hackers out of the server while there are no admins on.
thanks

oh ok, thanks for the help.
Also is it just me? because every-time I write a new comment or thread it takes at least 6 hours for it to officially appear. It's probably just me because it doesn't make a lot of sense, anyway.

Yes, actually i had one similar idea. Instead of banning, redirect all cheaters to server dedicated for them exclusively, to see how bastards like it there.

I agree, most of them start whining about "laggg" when you enable PB. For DOM we have one server with and one without, so anyone who wants DOM+PB can join PB enabled server.
