    This is old news.

    Oh, and as someone strongly opposed to the use of punkbuster, I am fine with this.

    The difference between this expansion of the EULA / TOS and that of punkbuster is left as a lesson in practical security to the punkbuster circle jerk crowd.

    There is no technical solution to cheating that can stop those that use it for business purposes or are highly motivated and lame.

    Yes, but I am guessing it is not reverse engineered into the 2d client.

    I am assuming that the beta test is for the client, not the content, and therefore is exclusively SA.
