Daigo‌ ‌Umehara‌ ‌discusses‌ ‌the‌ ‌future‌ ‌of‌ ‌Cygames‌ ‌Beast’s‌ ‌former‌ ‌roster‌ ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Legendary‌ ‌Street‌ ‌Fighter‌ ‌player‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌“The‌ ‌Beast”‌ ‌Umehara‌ ‌was‌ ‌‌released‌ ‌from‌ ‌his‌ ‌team‌ along‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌rest‌ ‌of‌ ‌his‌ ‌comrades‌ ‌on‌ ‌February‌ ‌2,‌ ‌2020.‌ ‌Cygames‌ ‌Beast‌ ‌was‌ ‌disbanded‌ ‌due‌ ‌to‌ ‌fears‌ ‌of‌ ‌conflict‌ ‌of‌ ‌interest‌ ‌regarding‌ ‌Cygames’‌ ‌first‌ ‌fighting‌ ‌game,‌ ‌Granblue‌ ‌Fantasy‌ ‌Versus.‌ 

In‌ ‌a‌ ‌recent‌ ‌stream‌ ‌‌translated‌‌ ‌by‌‌FGC‌ ‌Translated‌,‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌discussed‌ ‌the‌ ‌future‌ ‌of‌ ‌the‌ ‌team.‌ Paying‌ ‌particular‌ ‌attention‌ ‌to‌ ‌DC‌ ‌“‌Infexious‌”‌ ‌Coleman,‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌worried‌ ‌about‌ ‌the‌ ‌ability‌ ‌of‌ some‌ ‌of‌ ‌his‌ ‌old‌ ‌teammates‌ ‌to‌ ‌attend‌ ‌‌Capcom‌ ‌Pro‌ ‌Tour‌ ‌‌events‌ ‌this‌ ‌year.‌ ‌Unlike‌ ‌Keita‌ Fuudo”‌ ‌Ai‌ ‌and‌ ‌Daigo,‌ ‌both‌ ‌Eduardo‌ ‌“PR‌ ‌Balrog”‌ ‌Pérez‌ ‌and‌ ‌Infexious‌ ‌only‌ ‌had‌ ‌Cygames‌ ‌as‌ a‌ ‌sponsor,‌ ‌meaning‌ ‌they‌ ‌will‌ ‌have‌ ‌to‌ ‌shoulder‌ ‌the‌ ‌cost‌ ‌of‌ ‌attending‌ ‌events‌ ‌until‌ ‌they‌ ‌can‌ ‌find‌ ‌new‌ ‌sponsors.‌ 
Singling‌ ‌out‌ ‌Infexious,‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌complained‌ ‌about‌ ‌how‌ ‌much‌ ‌of‌ ‌a‌ ‌waste‌ ‌it‌ ‌would‌ ‌if‌ ‌the‌ ‌UK‌ player‌ ‌was ‌unable‌ ‌to‌ ‌compete‌ in ‌CPT‌ ‌events‌ ‌this‌ ‌year.‌ ‌In‌ ‌2019,‌ ‌Infexious‌ ‌‌finished‌ ‌13th‌‌ ‌in‌ Capcom‌ ‌Cup,‌ ‌while‌ ‌he‌ ‌secured‌ ‌‌second‌ ‌place‌‌ ‌at‌ ‌Red‌ ‌Bull‌ ‌Kumite‌ ‌Japan.‌ ‌That’s‌ ‌a‌ ‌lot‌ ‌of‌ ‌talent‌ at‌ ‌risk.‌ 
Upon‌ ‌thinking‌ ‌about‌ ‌the‌ ‌situation,‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌seemed‌ ‌to‌ ‌find‌ ‌the‌ ‌determination‌ ‌to‌ ‌do‌ ‌something‌ about‌ ‌it.‌ ‌Stating‌ ‌his‌ ‌desire‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌team‌ ‌to‌ ‌stay‌ ‌together,‌ ‌Daigo‌ ‌said,‌ ‌"Well,‌ ‌I‌ ‌will‌ ‌do‌ ‌something‌ ‌about‌ ‌this.‌ ‌I‌ ‌will‌ ‌work‌ ‌on‌ ‌this‌ ‌issue."‌ ‌He‌ ‌went‌ ‌on‌ ‌to‌ ‌add,‌ ‌“So,‌ ‌don't‌ ‌worry‌ ‌about‌ ‌it.‌ ‌Don't‌ ‌worry‌ ‌about‌ ‌Infexious.‌ ‌The‌ ‌person‌ ‌who‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌working‌ ‌on‌ ‌this‌ ‌is‌ ‌Shino-san‌ ‌(manager)."‌ 
Cygames‌ ‌Beast‌ ‌was‌ ‌a‌ ‌strong‌ ‌team‌ ‌with‌ ‌great‌ ‌placements‌ ‌at‌ ‌the‌ ‌tournaments‌ ‌they‌ ‌attended.‌ It's ‌no‌ ‌stretch‌ ‌to‌ ‌say‌ ‌that‌ ‌other‌ ‌sponsors would‌ ‌be‌ ‌interested‌ ‌in‌ ‌snatching‌ ‌them‌ ‌up,‌ ‌but‌ ‌Daigo’s‌ ‌comments‌ ‌indicate‌ ‌a‌ ‌desire‌ ‌for‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌remain‌ ‌a‌ ‌team‌ ‌as‌ ‌opposed‌ ‌to‌ ‌leaving‌ ‌for‌ ‌different‌ ‌organizations.‌ ‌Only‌ ‌time‌ ‌will‌ ‌tell.‌
