This might be the best Ed combo I've ever seen in Street Fighter 5 and apparently it's tough as hell to perform

Psycho-powered puncher Ed has always been capable of pulling off some impressive combos in Street Fighter 5. However, the sequence we're looking at today that takes place in Season 5 might be the best I've seen yet.

Old school combo creator and fighting game veteran tragic uploaded a combo that punishes Seth hard for a blocked EX uppercut. Using V-Trigger 1 and a string of impressive juggles, it's no wonder the creator says that this is one of the hardest combos they've ever filmed.

"This is, without a doubt, one of THE hardest Ed combos I've ever capped," tragic writes. "It took about 4-5 hours of trying different variants, learning frame perfect timings, and then actually capturing it. There's another ender I might cap as well (cool factor)."

The sequence is built upon using a raw V-Trigger 1 orb to catch Seth as they're coming down from the DP. Basically, the idea here is to keep Seth bouncing off of the energy ball, but only for a set amount of hits per time to ensure Ed can land every piece of this combo.

What's shown here is an intricate performance with several side switches, microwalks, and some serious swag. At the end of it all, Seth ends up taking 675 damage and 699 stun.

Due to the level of difficulty and specific positioning on screen it takes to pull this combo off, it's unlikely we'll see it in a real match. But hey, if any Ed players manage to do it, that will make for one hell of a highlight.
