-ACI- is a multi-service organization that provides PunkBuster support and independent services to the gaming community. These services include banlist management based on streamed violations and log data as well as submitted PBSS screenshots. Taking it a step further, we use the data we collect and manage to provide a number of additional unique tools and resources to help our members and the gaming community maintain a clean and fun playing environment.

To start using -ACI- protection on your server, set up server streaming and apply for Streaming Admin membership. Streaming to ACI has many advantages:
  • Players in your server are logged into the -ACI- History Tool, where you can view player accounts and look for links to cheating accounts, reported screenshots, PunkBuster violation kicks, other player names used by the account, and more.
  • Players in your server found with cheats in their PunkBuster screenshots by our numerous PBSS "trollers" can be banned after being verified with your streamed logs.
  • Players in your server who are kicked due to bannable PunkBuster violations are immediately added to the -ACI- ban list by -ACI- LiveBans.
After your server has been streaming for 6 weeks, you can apply for Server Owner membership which brings additional tools and forum access.

For both Streaming Admin and Server Owner members we offer -ACI- LiveSecure, -ACI-'s state of the art game server anti-cheat protection service. LiveSecure automatically tracks PB violations, monitors suspicious players with -ACI- LiveWatch, implements ACI MD5/CVAR checks, and enforces bans using a master list of -ACI- and other anti-cheat community bans. Play in your server with confidence that no player is using a banned account. LiveSecure for Streaming Admins includes most of the features of the Server Owner version:

FeatureLiveSecure (SA) LiveSecure (SO)
Real-time ban list
LiveBans instant PB Violation bans
LiveWatch active watch list
LiveStats server statistics
LiveSecure server banners
Cross-game kicks
MD5/CVAR anti-cheat checks

If you do not have a server but want to be an active member of the anti-cheat community, you are invited to apply as a Private Member (membership requires an active gaming account in one or more of the games -ACI- supports).

BF3/BF4 History Tool Re-opened
Nov 11, 2014 - 6:20 PM - by [soldier]-ACI-
The ACI Battlefield 3 and 4 History Tool has been re-opened

ACI is pleased to announce that after consultation with Dice Studios, the History Tool for BF3/BF4 has been re-opened while ACI and Dice Studios engage in discussions on how best to balance the information needs of the community with the privacy concerns of individuals.

We would like to extend our thanks to those of you who took the time to submit your thoughts, comments, and concerns on this matter. We are hopeful that through an open and honest dialog we can reach an agreement that will be satisfactory to all parties concerned.

New Background Check policy
Nov 06, 2014 - 7:28 PM - by [soldier]-ACI-
Due to the recent closing of the History Tool for BF3/4, we understand that our BF3/4 member clans will be needing to make more use of our Background Check services. In order to better manage the number of requests, starting today we are limiting BG check requests to Streaming Admin and Server Owner members only.

Before making a BG check request, please consider the reason for the request and whether a BG check would be truly helpful:

ReasonNeed
Want to run a check on a prospective clan memberAbsolutely yes. Please do this to help keep your member clans clean.
Want to run a check on a regular player at our serverYes.
I think I saw this player using an aimbotNo. A background check is a historical records search,
not a magic wand to find cheats that PunkBuster didn't find.
I want to see how this thing works
(yes, we actually had one of these)
No. Look in the completed checks section to see how it works.

If we can limit the requests to ones that demonstrate a real need to be done, I am hoping that we will be able to keep up with them. We will try our best, but please keep in mind that we have only 4 staff members who are qualified to complete BG checks (including me), and we are all already overworked. If there are any BG Certified members still around, you have access to the AA History Tool and it would help a lot if you could pitch in on those requests.

BF3/BF4 History Tool Closed
Nov 05, 2014 - 6:01 PM - by [soldier]-ACI-
The ACI Battlefield 3 and 4 History Tool is closed due to censorship threats received from Dice Studios

Recently, ACI has received communications from Dice Studios threatening to remove all IP addresses from the PunkBuster streaming data unless ACI makes immediate changes to how the IP Address is used in the ACI History Tool.

Dice's specific demands for changing the tool display a basic lack of understanding of the purpose of the ACI History Tool and how it works. Even if ACI agreed to make their proposed changes, they would come at a considerable cost of time and resources and in the end would still result in an unworkable tool.

It appears that only ACI has been singled out for this threatening action, as other anti-cheat communities (i.e. PBBans) continue to display IP addresses to their members.

If you have concerns or comments regarding this matter, they can be addressed directly to Dice Studios:
