Just popped up on Twitter:

Quote:
After optimizations and restarts yesterday, we had been stable across all platforms. Unfortunately, we encountered another outage at approximately 9:30 AM PST today.

- X360 was severely impacted, and the service is being restarted. It should be back online and we are monitoring closely.
- PC had an outage, but the service is offline currently and the service is being restarted. It should be back online and we are monitoring closely. We will then start checking the quality of the customer experience to determine possible next steps.
- PS3 appeared to have a brief outage, but has quickly recovered and the services is functioning properly at this time.


All teams are actively engaged in diagnosis and remediation. We are adding additional services to alleviate load. Despite having a major infrastructure in place, the peak traffic this weekend has been huge, 400% higher than any other Battlefield's peak simultaneous users. The teams will continue to monitor the services closely. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and will provide further updates on the latest developments as they are relevant.

Great. Now I can get into a server somewhat but PB keeps kicking me. I've uninstalled and reinstalled to the latest versions too. This is so damn frustrating.

I just read a post by a guy who host a server for another forum I'm using, and he says that looking from the punkbuster logfiles he concludes that the problem is at evenbalance, who can't handle the number of requests form servers requesting PB info for all the players. Until they get their **** together, the only advice is: only play on servers that doesn't use punkbuster! In Europe we have a wide range of low-latency servers from multiplay.co.uk which don't use PB but are guarded by admins most of the time. US people should find some US servers that doesn't use PB as well and post them here for everybody's convenience

But NOT using PB is just unethical.

I'll try that. Any easy way to see what servers don't use PB?
