Seth gets hit... hard

Seth can generally give Zangief quite a bit of trouble with his fireballs, high mobility, DP, and more. But when Itabashi Zangief went up against /r/Kappa|Poongko today, he showed that one opening can really turn the tide in battle.

The fake out!

RZR|Infiltration showcased a few of his characters today, but his Decapre was certainly the most entertaining. Watch as he makes an incredible read on QANBA|Dakou's jump and punishes with air throw.

Frame traps. Frame traps. Ultra!

When facing EG|Justin Wong, MF|Tonpy's C. Viper hit a string of frame traps, only to confirm into a devastating super jump cancelled ultra 1.
