About Combo Breaker

COMBO BREAKER is a 3-day Fighting Game Community convention & tournament series held annually over Memorial Day weekend in Illinois, USA.

Organized by COMBO BREAKER LLC, the convention was developed by @thehadou & Gaming Generations to provide a high-spectacle weekend for fighting game fans in the Midwest. Since the convention’s arrival in 2015, it has been heralded as a can’t-miss experience by tournament competitors and spectators alike. COMBO BREAKER continues to be an event focused on the attendee experience, built by a dedicated staff with years of event attendance behind them.
