Hardware banned :
(Gaming Term)You will get this ban if you are confirmed hacking/modifying game content by EA and PB(Electronic Arts/Punk Buster) They will get the information of components in your PC that will not change... Even if you reformat, and block that hardware number from every server that uses PunkBuster.
I got hw banned... so i'm not gonna be able to play BF2 until i get a new computer :(
It stands for Punk Buster Screen shot. This can be used with any game that uses PunkBuster(Battlefield 2, America's Army, etc., etc.)It means when you're playing it can capture your actual screen. Purposefully meaning to catch hackers. Admins have to be there to check the screenshots. So if you get screenshotted, it shouldn't really matter unless if an admin checks all of them.
Dude I think I just got pbss'd!! and there was admins there! SH1T!
