COMBO BREAKER is the largest competitive fighting game convention in Illinois. Over 3 days every Memorial Day weekend the convention becomes home to a variety of fighting game tournaments and the communities that love them. As a melting pot of culture and competition, COMBO BREAKER strives to be a weekend of gaming entertainment where players can compete, relax, and celebrate gaming.
COMBO BREAKER was born from Adam Heart retiring the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament Series in 2014. When his absence left the area without its annual gaming extravaganza, Richard Thiher, then Assistant Director of the series, partnered with Gaming Generations to develop a worthy event successor. When COMBO BREAKER arrived in 2015 it presented exciting, proficient tournaments and a then-unique 24-hour venue experience. The event's focus on community also saw it become one of the most viewed fighting game tournaments of the year on twitch.tv.
In 2018 COMBO BREAKER continues to build on a legacy of fun with our veteran staff and beloved attendees. Join us May 25-27, 2018 for 3 days of mashed buttons, hype crowds, and intense competition as we celebrate the friendships and rivalries born from competitive fighting games.
