Forgetting passwords in the 21st century is an inevitability with the dozens or hundreds of accounts that each of us holds online, but what happens when we have no way of getting back into an old account?

CYG|Daigo Umehara is currently ranked as the 15th in the world for Street Fighter 5: Arcade Edition's online modes, but he may have just lost his Ultimate Grand Master ranked account by making a simple mistake that many of us have probably done before.

As Daigo was reportedly going to start streaming on Twitch, he accidentally logged out of his PlayStation Network account on his PlayStation 4 and realized that he can't remember his password to log back in.

The top player reportedly "said that the email was casually created long time ago, so no one in this universe know about that email anymore" according to HiFight after clipping part of the ordeal meaning that Daigo's account can't simply be recovered with the 'forgot my password' prompt as per usual.

His 'memememe' account has 169,692 League Points currently and has served as Umehara's main online account since Street Fighter 5 launched in 2016, so Daigo may lose over two years worth of progress if he can't log back into his account.

All hope may not be lost, however, as Sony may still be able to help Daigo out if he decides to call their customer service support line and work with them to possibly restore his account and regain his memememe status. You can check out Daigo's reaction to the situation in the clip below along with his current online standings.
