Quote from PBBans:
PBBans has been online for almost 14 years and over that time we have undergone many changes and overcome many obstacles. From DDoS attacks to hosting changes, we have managed to come out on top providing a welcomed anti-cheat community for Punk Buster enabled games.
However, given our continued shortfall of donations, lack of new games with Punk Buster and games moving away from server rentals we feel our only viable option is to shut down in the next few months.

We looked at moving to a cheaper host but in the end, it's not worth the time and hassle just to stay online for a few extra months. Our server count is dropping by the day and donations too. Moving is always a pain and we end up losing streaming servers that never seem to get setup again.

The last new game with Punk Buster was Battlefield Hardline release in March 2015 and the last listed Punk Buster update was June 2015. More games are moving t owards in house anti-cheat or using newer 3rd party solutions such as FairFight and BattlEye. Many argue the effectiveness of each but in the end, it's what the new games are using.

So, what happens after we close? We plan to host a basic site with the last banlists for download, PB files of legacy games and a farewell message of our closure. Emails will still work but the rest of the website and streaming will no longer exist at that point.

It's sad for us as we have all made PBBans into a good community to fight cheaters and it was a very hard decision to close but asking for donations time and time again has lost its appeal.

Thank you all for the many years of support. You will be missed.

CoD2/4 can still be played, even after end of PBBans, we would just need few good programmers who can dive into libcod and program some security and gameplay features. But it looks like Battalion will hopefully be successor, so we should give CoDs few last months alive before we move on.
