Results for @ComboBreakerFGC 2017
With the weekend behind us, we’d like to take a look back at the many outcomes that resulted during Combo Breaker 2017. We hope that everybody who attended enjoyed themselves…we know for a fact that we were pleased with our time there!
Over three-thousand competitors were in attendance at the Mega Center. The majority of games would feature qualifying spots tied to championship events such as the Capcom Cup, Burst League, Curleh Circuit, etc. From our time at Combo Breaker, it’s clear that the amount of love and care the organizers put into this event can be matched by only few others, if any at all. The venue was open all day, all weekend and still had hundreds of players grinding out casuals well into the overnight hours, and it also featured a viewing center where players could catch up on ELEAGUE and Red Bull Kumite.
Speaking of which, if you missed out on the results for ELEAGUE and Red Bull, see these articles below:
Combo Breaker was also the first event where we held our PopUp Tour (more on that here) to conduct Injustice 2 tournaments using rulesets that introduced unique gameplay elements, such as random select. Our next stop will be CEO 2017 on June 16-18, 2017! If you find a banner with the StreamMe logo on it at the Wyndham Resort next month, that’s us! Feel free to say hi.
Archives for the PopUp Tour at Combo Breaker can be found here.
A series of announcements were also released to the public during Combo Breaker. Included among them are:
