Canada Cup Gaming has finally given its official word on the incident that marred the Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite at Canada Cup 2017: Jose “PCMarvelGod” Aldape — also known as Quackbot — ended up entering the tournament twice, using the bracket slot of Lina “Holy Order-Troll” Crawford, who was unable to play due to issues with a custom arcade stick.

This double-entry, once discovered, resulted in Pool 8 of the tournament being replayed — something which cost Southern California player Eliver “KillerKai” Ling his previous placement int he top 16, and his chances at winning the tournament.

In response to this, Canada Cup Gaming has released a statement, indicating that lifetime bans have been issued to both PCMarvelGod and Holy Order-Troll; neither will be allowed to enter a Canada Cup event again. In addition to violating the rules of the tournament, the actions of both players have also undermined the legitimacy of the event, causing at least one player (KillerKai) to publicly state the at they would never again compete at the event.
