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.

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.
