    Map: N/A

    Reason: N/A

    Technically not banned, but the server keeps kicking me when I join I think because I'm using my school's internet (A VPN) to join and ya'll think I'm hacking or something idk.

    I can join on this network for my first 3 years of college but for some reason this server (and HOG) all the sudden hate VPNs. This is only the EU server btw.

    I can still join NA (if your'e still affiliated with them idk), as well as most other popular servers.

    I'm a pretty well known and polite PR player and I'm living on campus for the next 4 months so some kind of exemption is very appreciated.

    AcecCombatZero we needed to take drastic measurements in order to protect our server from well known griefers. VPN's are commonly used to hide the true identity of a player.

    Where do you study? Your school network was visible in your previous connections. That is also the network you used to connect to our forum just now. The network you used to connect to our server isn't the same school network we can see on the forum and your older pr connections. Plz explain to me why you use a different network for the connections to the pr server.

    Hmmmmm.... I'm not sure how far back in time you are referring to by "older PR connections", I'm kinda back from a long hiatus and this is the first time I am running into this issue.

    I go to a school in Jacksonville, FL

    Yesterday I tried to work around the issue by connecting via different networks within the schools network (First being the primary via the Ethernet port, then, via WiFi; the backup network, and then finally public access, all kicked me immediately)

    Since the backup and public access don't work I'll be using the primary Ethernet connection from here on out, that being the same one I'm using presently to make this post.

    I'll attempt to connect to the PR server 3 times at this moment (about 5:49 GMT), so go off whatever network I'm using there.

    Thanks for your help!

    Yes, this networks seems appropriate. It confirms your residential claims and it is the one allowing us to connect all accounts we have seen from you yet.

    3. PR:BF2 Senior Administrator team will inform you soon about the outcome of the decision to whitelist your cd-key.

    Thank you for your patience. :prteamwork:

    You need to wait for a server restart btw. This happens at 6am UTC or if the server crashes. So pray for a server crash.

    ..or don't. plz don't :biggrin:
