At this time last year, there was one name at the top of the Capcom Pro Tour leaderboards; Razer’s Lee Seon-woo–more commonly known as Infiltration–had dominated the Tour, winning the first two Capcom Pro Tour events, Final Round 19 and NorCal Regionals 2016. What a change that a year (and a balance patch) can bring, as not only was Infiltration not at Final Round 20, but it looks like he’ll won’t be at NCR 2017 as well.
In a recent tweet, Infiltration confirmed that he would not be attending NorCal Regionals 2017. According to him, he feels that he is not yet ready to attend Capcom Pro Tour events.
I am sorry guys, i just canceled my flight & hotel for NCR.
Because i am not ready to attending cpt events.
Hopefully see you guys soon!

While this seems like such shocking decision from a decorated player–having won multiple tournament wins including three Evolution championships–it’s not entirely unexpected for those following his performance as of this year. With the changes to his previous Street Fighter V main character Nash, Infiltration has been on the lookout for a new character to use. While he’s been playing a lot with Juri and Rashid, even using them at TBS’s ELEAGUE, it seems that he still doesn’t feel confident in his ability to bring them to the finals of a Capcom Pro Tour event.
