GameViolations (GV) Closes its doors


Staff member
Dear Community,

During the last months we had to deal with a huge number of false/fake bans and also with the possibility of faking PunkBuster-Screenshots.

Game-Violations has always been based on PunkBusters functionality. But at this point we are no longer willing to support PunkBuster, because it is simply not working anymore in any way.

Evenbalance is ignoring every single Bug/Error report and is not updating, rewriting or securing their code since years (the level of encryption used in PBUcon is ridiculous).

Since it is now becoming easy to ban innocent players because of the ignorance from Evenbalance we can no longer operate GV with a clear conscience. Some of those bugs we are not able to fix just by ourselves as those are deep inside the PunkBuster system itself.

It was a very hard decision to close our doors but it was the only possible conclusion.

We would like to thank you all for your great support over the last 9 years. We had a great time and made up some friendships that hopefully will last.

It was a pleasure for us to help some of you and we hope you won’t forget us that fast :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

As a personal note…

I would like to thank all the GV admins I ever had the pleasure to have in my team. You all did a great job!!!

A special Thanks goes to Jayne aka FoXeH who was the Co-Founder of GV. She was standing at my side for many years and we had great time running GV.

The second big Thanks goes to thelamb aka Chris. He was for many years my second in command and we both made some cool stuff for GV and had a lot of fun doing it.

Ok, I think that’s it now. I will miss GV and everything around it. But I am sure I will see some of you on the next battlefield ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

If you think we are worth a good bye then please feel free to leave a message on FaceBook.

I wish all of you a great time and good luck in future. No matter if real or online, life is life ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20">

Best wishes and take care
