That's not the issue!!

The problem is joining a server, at least the first time it takes two tries to join a.server. It's not about getting kicked from a server.

Isn't it odd though that this problem started occuring at the SAME time as the PB update? It was never a problem until then.

I was having a problem getting random disconnects from a server. Someone suggested updatin PB. Then just after I did that I now can't join (get the same connection to server lost) message on the first try.

It is quite obvious that the problem was created when I updated punkbuster.

I got the pretty much same dumb response/answer reply from PB in a support ticket (won't reply so soon on such dumb response). *facepalm*

This is the next step evenbalance suggested:

Note #4: Please delete the PB folder from the game installation, then run PBSetup and let it check for updates. Make sure you don't run PBSetup from inside the PB folder.

Please make sure you allow the service files in security software like virus scanners and/or firewalls. You will need to allow/unblock the services PnkBstrA.exe and PnkBstrB.exe from your "C:\Windows\system32\" folder (or "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\" on 64bit systems). In case of doubt, manually add both to your firewall's allow list. After the installation process you will only find PnkBstrA, so just make sure this process file is not blocked. Then try playing on a PB enabled server, in case of a kick, check if PnkBstrB was created and unblock it too.

To test that it is punkbuster related can you send me an older punkbuster version to install to see if I still have the problem after downgrading?

EA has not had an update to this game in 3 years.
This is some sort of Punkbuster problem.

Can you send an older PB version that I can install and test?
I am waiting for a response..

At least they're responding . But contacting EA? And then what? They're not going to do a darn thing about it. The only thing that gets 'regular' updates is Punkbuster.
