View Full Version : PunkBuster

Hello i'm wondering if punkbuster is going to be used for assassin's creed 3? and if it is please post your support so that ubisoft gets a much better anti-cheat system that won't kick players if they don't have it installed or make sure that punkbuster is automatically installed when installing the game.

Punkbuster is the most annoying thing ever. It kicks you if it loses connections, it kicks you if it suddenly wubs up and fails to launch something and it has so many problems including the sometimes not working auto-update.

They should throw PB away. Its useless crap, cant stop even basic tools like Cheat Engine. Only causes trouble for some players.

^not to mention the fact that its a transparrent ploy to increase console sales.

honestly ubisoft call us pirates all you want just make your game completely playable for everyone, punkbuster is the worst anti-cheat system out there in my opnion, you could instead use Valve's Anti-cheat system VAC keep screwing us over all you want but we're not going to buy a console just to play your multiplayer games.

Never really encountered cheaters in ACB or ACR, it's fine by me.

lol some of these replies.

punkbuster is annoying and i dont like it, but i would take it any day over having cheaters run around in AC multiplayer.

Max payne 3 retail launched without any anti-cheat system and the online was plagued with cheaters and it ruined a ton of MP matches before R* fixed it.

Its the lesser of two evils

^but they need to use a better anti-cheat system! Punkbuster is a joke and it doesn't even install itself with the game.

keep posting if you want ubisoft to actually care about their pc customers

There are known working cheats in ACR, like speed hack and AA base swap. PB is just another problematic service in your system, that is required but does not do anything usefull at all

If the assassin's creed 3 will punkbuster game I did not buy it, and so I put up with cheaters in battlefield 3 with crappy anti-cheat, which does not work at all, sorry for my english.
