Battlefield 3 Bans Gone Wrong?

The Battlelog forums and reddit each feature threads with posts from a surprising number of users claiming they've been banned from playing Battlefield 3 online due to PunkBuster violations in spite of no wrongdoing. Kotaku points the way to an apparent explanation on a site that sells and supports cheats for the game where posts describe a systematic campaign that's currently underway to get innocent users banned to demonstrate the fallibility of the PunkBuster methodology. A recent post to Battlelog from a moderator says: "PB is having an issue at the moment.. DICE and EA are working with Even balance to find cause and fix it asap!" Thanks The Grifter.

Of course they could triple their player base by simply putting it on Steam but that's a bitch for a different thread.

It's been my contention since this crap about EA pulling games off Steam started that EA's stated reasons are BS and they are just being pithy, spiteful assholes (nothing new for them). Crysis 2, for example, was removed from Steam ostensibly because they didn't like the way Steam restricts how DLC can be sold. When was the last DLC for Crysis 2 released? Is anyone aware of any more in production? Why does the game remain off Steam if EA's reasons are to be taken at face value? Same question can be asked of Dragon Age 2. Theoretically, any type of compendium (Crysis 2 Complete, or Dragon Age 2, Disappointing Game of the Year Edition, for example) would be released on Steam since there would be no ensuing DLC. Unless of course EA is full of shit, as is par for the course.
