2.4. What is a PBGUID?

PB = PunkBuster

"In general, GUID is an acronym that stands for "Globally Unique Identifier". The GUID inside PunkBuster is used to identify players with something more solid than their playing name or IP address. Your guid is loosely based on the CD key that was used to install the game on your computer."

2.5. Why are some players refered to by more than one 247FairPlay ID?
These several IDs refer to the same Player via different Identifiers that could not be joined to just 1 Identifier. One ID probably refers to the Player regarding their PBGUID and the other ID refers to the Player regarding their PersonaID.
2.6. Why can I not see full IP addresses?
Only certain groups are allowed to allways see the full IP addresses of all players:
  • Administrators
  • Moderators
2.7. What is "stats padding"?

"Stat padding is the act of recieving undeserved points due to abnormal and unhelpful gameplay."

Regarding CheatDetector, stats padding can get you banned, if it makes your stats look like a cheat has been used (because they are not normally reachable).
2.8. What is HSK, KH, KPM or ACC?
  • ACC: Accuracy (How many of your shots hit the enemy?)
  • HSK: Headshots per kills (How many of your kills where kills with headshots?)
  • KH: Kills per hit (How many hits does it take to kill an enemy)
  • KPM: Kills per minute
  • KKA: Kills per Killassists
2.9. Why are my Battlereports missing?
We cannot save all Battlereports for all players. This would be too much data.

However we are working on a way for you to request individual Battlereports.
2.10. What are "PunkBuster Violations"?

"When PunkBuster detects a cheat or hack by repeated positive identification on a player's computer, a violation is raised. These violation numbers are 50000 and higher."

Different families of cheats have distinct violation numbers:
  • #50000s - Aimbot

"There is a whole category of kicks by PunkBuster known as Restriction kicks. These are not meant to be treated as cheat violations. These kicks are reserved for programs, drivers, etc. that contain methods not generally allowed on PunkBuster servers. We encourage admins to never ban for Restriction kicks."

Players are linked to each other by comparing various identifiers. These include, but are not limited to the following:
