Think playing Street Fighter 5 is hard enough as is? Try doing it without looking at the screen.

That's how BlindWarriorSven takes on every match, because, as his name would imply, he doesn't have the luxury of sight to aid him in his fighting game matches. This doesn't seem to slow him down in the least however, as Sven is taking on (and beating) the competition at FFM Rumble X in Germany.

Still in the pools phase, Sven and his Ken took on a Laura player, and would pull out an impressive 2-0 victory. Without the ability to see the action, Sven relies heavily on frame-perfect set ups and the sounds of the game to navigate the battle.

Here is a segment of his set with TheWood82:

You'll see the conclusion of their bout below.

This isn't the first we've heard of Sven, as take a set at Sonic Boom back in April.

The Ken player would actually end up going 3-3 in the tournament's round robin group stage, translating to fourth place finish amongst the group's seven competitors.

We're excited to see where Sven's persistence and determination takes him as he continues his journey in the competitive fighting game realm.
