PunkBuster causes a lot of problems and was therefore disabled.

so there's absolutely no alternative? with the increasing rate of users and servers and few admins we have we can't hope to do it old fashioned way... it would take forever to ban them all. :cry:

Anticheat is planned in a future revision. However, the current focus is on Venice.

Do you see a release Venice Unleashed with even half the features promised yet? Just play on EA's servers until NF finished VU if you want an anticheat so bad. Or on moderated servers. Either way works.

Also note, that NoFaTe is gonna add IP parsing without Punkbuster in the future, so serveradmins can ban IP ranges

I'm so glad to hear that! Those are really, really GOOD NEWS! Rome is such an ingenious project on an utterly awesome game!
The only downside is the lack of an effective anti-cheat system (despite some server admins best efforts on the issue).
The aforementioned measures are badly needed! Wave after wave, cheaters are slowly ruining the game. They don't enjoy the game the way it's meant to be played. Moreover, they deny other players an enjoyable experience.
I hope that those measures may be implemented in a timely fashion (regardless of the focus on the Venice project), otherwise - I think - it will be too late. If nothing is done, more and more clean players will stay away from Nexus servers and cheaters ratio will obviously increase over time. I foresee many empty servers and a few populated servers filled with cheaters. An ultimate "cheaters paradise feast".
This project doesn't deserve that fate - not - NoFaTe ;). Don't let them win!

Great news.

And PB isn't really doing a lot on the EA servers either. Maybe ppl are just afraid of cheating there, but we only have about one detection every three days or so. (On 5 servers)
