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.
Another Canada Cup is in the Bag!
Team Canada Cup would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who supported us this year. And, we hope you all had just as much fun as we did over the last weekend.
We’re still doing a TON of after event work and I’m sure there’s some burning questions that you’d like answered. We will be releasing some official statements about this stuff by the end of the week, so please bare with us.
As always, we are very happy we could share last weekend with all of you.
