The Capcom Pro Tour 2023 Europe North/East is one of the notable online Street Fighter 6 tournaments happening this weekend. One of the players participating in this event is a JP user known as Lord Venom, and he ended up facing off against KS|Rikemansbarnet’s Juri.
In the first round of the second match, Lord Venom was proving to be difficult to stop. Unfortunately for Rikemansbarnet, every decision made was to the benefit of Lord Venom, leading into a perfect for JP. However, what might be even more demoralizing was how the round ended.
Towards the end of the round, Rikemansbarnet’s situation couldn’t be worse. He was in burnout, didn’t have enough super gauge for Super Art 1, and was trapped in the corner.
Lord Venom would begin a combo against Juri that had the potential to KO, if he was willing to spend a bar of gauge. However, it seems that Lord Venom was thinking a few steps ahead.
Instead of spending his meter, Lord Venom instead opted to perform a basic block string into a Drive Impact against Rikemansbarnet while cornered. Without any Drive Gauge or super meter, Rikemansbarnet had zero chance of escaping.
Seeing that his opponent was stunned from the exchange, Lord Venom decided to tack on some psychological damage. He spent the last of his Drive Gauge to use Overdrive Departure, placing two void tears in the corner.
From here, Lord Venom committed to JP’s taunt animation as the Overdrive special was enough to deplete the remainder of Juri’s life bar. Check it out below:
