NuckleDu uses the power of Guile shades to K.O. GamerBee, PR Balrog's insane whiff punish on Infiltration, and more: Top 5 moments from FR17

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • March 25, 2014 at 3:17 p.m. PDT

Capcom Fighters put together an excellent highlight reel featuring the first stop on the Capcom Pro Tour, Final Round 17. This video compiles the top 5 best moments from the Super Street Fighter 4 portion of the event, and each clip is better than the last.

There were a ton of hype moments at FR17, but the ones you'll find here include EMP|NuckleDu scoring a very stylish K.O. on AVM|GamerBee, EG|PR Balrog hitting a round-winning Ultra 1, whiff punishing Infiltration's Akuma sweep, and more.

We don't want to give too much away, so be sure to check it out after the break.

THE POWER OF SHADES!

We all know from UMvC3 that removing sunglasses makes you more powerful so, with that in mind, Guile is weakening himself to bring his glory down to the level of the other Street Fighters.

Yeah, that's what I'll say.

This.

PR Rog is so fun to watch, and I normally don't even LIKE Balrog!

Imo that wasn't a whiff punish from PR Rog. He was dead and just saw Akuma move so he just did it. I'd bet he was trying to react to a fireball and just got lucky to have it work out the way it did. Even if I was right I doubt he'd ever admit it lol. Still a hype moment nonetheless.

If you are looking to react to fireball and see sweep... all the same in this context. whatever punishes the fireball im willing to bet punishes that sweep. Can't think of something Id do that doesnt punish both.

The shades... Ah, I love a friendly taunt in a match, it makes things incredibly interesting to see which player responds the best to it.

Rog using the headbutt at that moment was so smart. Inf was prepared for the TAP or the dash punch, that's why he did the sweep, but Rog evaded both options and got a whiff punish for it.

When PR Rog reset the bracket it looked a lonely place up there on stage for Ryan, props to Ryan on the victory.

that guy hugged Ryan just a moment too long. all it takes is a moment to turn it from "congratulations" to "your hair smells pretty".
