Canada Cup issues lifetime ban on both players involved in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite bracket violations

'Players who misrepresent themselves under another player’s gamertag or multiple gamertags undermine the legitimacy of tournament events'

Canada Cup 2017 was held in Toronto this past weekend, and though it was filled with the hype and excitement that comes from having international talent compete in the event's plethora of fighting game titles, there was a major incident involving bracket integrity.

Two players that had signed up for the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite tournament have been given a lifetime ban by Canada Cup tournament organizers.

Jose "Quackbot" Aldape (now known as PC Marvel God) violated the rules by entering the tournament twice, once as himself and once under the alias of another player entirely.

Lina "Holy Order Troll" Crawford offered her spot to Aldape after having arcade stick troubles. Major problems ensued after tournament organizers discovered the goings on, as multiple tournament matches had to be replayed.

We heard reactions from affected player Eliver "Killer Kai"Ling earlier this week. You can read the statement issued by Canada Cup representatives below.

Regarding Canada Cup 2017

Canada Cup Gaming prides itself on hosting world class events, and takes player’s experiences at our tournaments very seriously. This is why we were disappointed to learn that two players decided to violate established codes of conduct on the second night of our premiere annual event, Canada Cup.

With no prior precedent of this in our community, Tournament Organizers were required to make a judgement call quickly for all players impacted — all matches in which outcomes could have been potentially altered by the registrant playing under a false gamertag were replayed as if they were disqualified immediately.

Players who misrepresent themselves under another player’s gamertag or multiple gamertags (with and without consent) undermine the legitimacy of tournament events, and are in violation of the rules. As such, Canada Cup Gaming is instituting lifetime event bans for both registrants, and sincere apologies for the disruption their actions have caused.
