The world of eSports is curious, since despite having a good atmosphere at almost all times, there are occasions when some players are involved in strong scandals. This has happened in scenes such as super smash bros._ , fortnite, call of duty and league of legends._ and now a new controversy has emerged around Street Fighter.
A Korean player who specializes in fighting titles, Seon-Woo “Infiltration” Lee, revealed hours ago that he has been forbidden to participate in several tournaments, and one of those is precisely the Evo 2022. They made this known by mail, stating that it is for a violation of event behaviors, they even reimbursed the money for his registration.
The same also happened with the tournament known as Combo Breaker. He even shared captures of the emails that each of these large companies sent him.
The Kotaku website contacted the general manager of Evo, Rick Tiher, explaining that the event is committed to promoting a safe environment for our players and fans.
Here his comment:
Evo will not publicly discuss individual execution decisions, but will take the necessary measures to defend our code of conduct and create a cozy environment in the competences. These efforts are vital for the future of Evo and the experience that we strive to create for our community.
This is what Lee mentioned about it:
I legitimately believe that it can be solved with adequate conversation. I hope the organizers speak and explain exactly what is the cause that has denied my entry. I also demand an adequate apology that has caused financial and mental stress for my planning of several trips abroad to reach these events and reverse your decision to deny the entrance.
It is worth commenting, that in 2018 read was news when accused of domestic violence against his now ex -wife. A follow -up investigation found that these accusations were credible and eliminated read of his list. That led him to voluntarily move away from the official tournaments of Street Fighter For a year, while questioning the complaints, and in the end he was declared guilty by a South Korean court.
Despite all this, he continued to have problems after having returned to the scene, one of them was an attempt to gain fraudulently a competition of the fighting title in which he specialized. To that were added some inappropriate comments that he made through his emissions of Twitch, which led him to a full week of Baneo.
For now, Lee is suspended from all kinds of tournaments in video games. Something that can cause long -term ravages. With this information into account, it would be better for a behavior change before the ban is for life.
