Street Fighter is one of the most iconic and popular fighting games in the market. Millions of people love the characters and have followed the franchise throughout every era. As a testament to this, we have the EVO 2023 (short for Evolution Championship Series), a gaming event for participants who enjoy fighting video games. The championship has been taking place at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino from August 4 to August 6, 2023, in Las Vegas.
Today marks the very last day of the event, which has given players epic moments during the gaming battles. This was the case for BlindWarriorSven, who is a blind player that managed to become one of the top Street Fighter 5 players. As expected, he was able to transition to Street Fighter 6, the latest video game release from the franchise, and has shown his ability in this game during one of his matches.
BlindWarriorSven battled EternalPancake and showcased his mastery of the character Honda. Thanks to his undeniable skill, he secured an incredible victory. Pictures show the young man with his signature blindfolded eyes as he was praised by the public for winning the intense match with a 2-1 score.
The contestant lost his sight at a young age due to an illness. However, this did not stop him from enjoying video games and becoming one of the most notable players in the competitive Street Fighter scene. That is why, in order to be victorious, he relies on sound cues, patterns, and memorization to beat his opponents. In addition, he has been a part of several tournaments in the past, so it is no the first time people have seen the talented gamer at play.
