Some words from one of the individuals behind the controversy.
Canada Cup’s first Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite event ran into some serious troubles when it was discovered that a player known as PCMarvelGod (a.k.a. Quackbot) had entered the fray twice, taking up a position in Holy Order-Troll’s pool after she backed out. The result was a replayed bracket, much anger from various players, and a lifetime ban from Canada Cup for PCMarvelGod and Holy Order-Troll.
To learn more about the event and the people involved, RoKtheReaper approached Lina “Holy Order-Troll” Crawford to hear her side of the story, and get a better idea of the player behind the scandal. In the 20-question written interview, they discuss her past volunteer involvement in the fighting game community, the origin of her gamer tag, and trolling (“I honestly feel that trolling should never sound personal or hateful, such as attacking one’s character or appearance…”). They discuss a little about whether she feels the lifetime bans were fair (“For me, yes I suppose, and I will always feel very guilty about the whole thing. But for him? No.”), and reference some other controversial incidents and possible inconsistencies in the consequences… “But everyone deserves a second chance, and the FGC is not always fair, sadly.”
They also discuss gender in the FGC, Crawford’s non-FGC hobbies, other game genres, and more. Read the full interview here.
