Until recently, GGC were actively showing everyone's 32 character PB GUID. GGC does not seem to have any vetting of admins or streaming requirements. Just register on their forum! They allow everyone (including hackers) to stream. This has led to fake bans being streamed into their data base several times over the years including recently. They dont appear to have much quality control other than delete the problem and hope it goes away.

I prefer PBBans requiring their streaming admins and clans not be hackers past or present. Not allowing Cracked servers to stream. Etc, etc.

Well, when you look at who did it, I'm not surprised.

I've also been hearing rumor of hackers using a spoofed GUID, and causing other players to get banned when they get caught cheating.
Hoo hoo, Robin, I invented black-hawk whoring!

So far those rumors are pointing back to GGC and fakebans being streamed to them. Even a recent GGC ban of an Admin of Battlelog forums that was fake streamed. Its a repeat over the years with GGC 2008, 2011, 2012. I really dont have much faith in GGC's ban database.

Not saying something else can be going on in addition to this, just havent heard of anything else.

So far PBBans still hasnt been hit since the original 2008 attack.
GGC appears to still does not have it together.

GGC are the Nazi's of all anti-cheat communities, best not to bother with them ...

I did like the "image" of servers having PBBans or GGC in their name, but truth is ... if Punkbuster/Evenbalance doesn't detect a cheat, they won't either ... and PB is just slowly stepping up to the plate of BF3 ... but so far, with a little help from their friends at EA, one hack site after another bites the dust, more to come. ;)

however ... and i have seen this live ...

If an abusive admin bans or concocts a fake PB ban on a server streaming GGC , they (GGC) are more than willing to spread that ban to all other servers on their tab, no questions asked ... and yeah, they act like Chinese government officials ...

I mentioned a few weeks ago PBbans does not want to collaborate with them ... didn't I ?

Nuff said ;)

I've tried finding the EU server but nothing comes up. I've tried copying the name but it just says it has found no servers...

Make sure you don't have any filters on and try searching for just global.

I find the server so I would say its not issue... Do you clear all your filters? This should be examined in case we're screwing up...
