Team Liquid’s Du “NuckleDu” Dang dropped a surprising announcement on Twitter today — the revelation that he may not attend Capcom Cup 2017 to defend his title:

As last year’s Champion, NuckleDu was automatically qualified to compete in Capcom Cup 2017. The tweet indicates Dang will “most likely” not attend, which would open up another qualifying spot to another contender. No specific reason for the potential absence has yet been made public at the time of this writing. Expect further details and clarification to follow soon.
