Combo Breaker 2022 Registration Closes with 1000+ Guilty Gear -STRIVE- Participants


Coming up in about two weeks on May 27th-29th (Memorial Day Weekend), Combo Breaker 2022 will host thousands of fighting game players at one of the largest live events of the year. Tournament organizer Rick "TheHadou" Thiher announced player registration has closed and revealed the final number of competitors for each of the tournament games. Guilty Gear -STRIVE-, The King of Fighters XV, and TEKKEN 7 take the lead as the TOP 3 most popular games of the tournament, with 1061, 621, and 560 players respectively. (A special recognition and shoutout to TEKKEN 7 for being a 7-year-old game and retaining such a strong player base. It really says something about the game and competitive community. Can you imagine TEKKEN 8's numbers?)

On Twitter this week, Rick Thiher (also the new GM of Evolution Championship Series) mentioned that Guilty Gear STRIVE's record-breaking number of over 1000 players at the 2022 event exceeds the total number of participants across all games back at Combo Breaker 2015. Impressive!
It was announced last month that Combo Breaker 2022 will also provide attendees a chance to try out Capcom Fighting Collection before its release next month on June 24th, 2022. Attendees will be able to play the compilation of 10 Capcom classics at the official Capcom booth in CB2022's vendor village. Attendees of the event even score a CFC-themed hand sanitizer as a free gift at their badge pick-up. Nice!
Player registration for Combo Breaker 2022 has now closed. You can visit the the Combo Breaker official website for more information and details about the venue, tournaments, spectating, vendors, and stream schedule. Once again, Combo Breaker takes play May 27th-29th, 2022. You can also check out the official trailer for the event from back in February of this year.
