Battlefield 3 Bans Follow-up

The Battlelog forums have a follow-up on recent indications that Battlefield 3 players were being unfairly banned from playing by PunkBuster. Word is: "Together with the 3rd party service providers we have taken steps to remove the faulty bans, and improve the protection against future fake bans. We have determined that the root cause resulting in the server bans is not directly related to Battlefield 3, but rather related to select 3rd party services which server owners can use in conjunction with PunkBuster to protect their servers" (thanks BF3 Blog). Further, Eurogamer notes that DICE is now looking to hire an "Anti-Cheat Administrator" to further their efforts at maintaining a fair playing field.

I have run across the random zomg knife hack. but it's usually not that bad if you play on servers that has admins.

I'm actually more annoyed at how broken the friends list is than random people cheating. Origin simply is terrible, and battlelog is only an extension of that terrible. A unified friends list is a double edged sword, and probably not the best solution but it's better than what's going on right now.

Honestly, Origin / BattleLog and the game crashing about every 3-4 matches is taking more out of the game than the occasional cheater.
I probably wont play the next battlefield unless this stuff changes. (Unlikely.)
