Top 10 Registration Update for @ComboBreakerFGC 2018
For those following Combo Breaker 2018, Rick "TheHaodu" Thiher has just released an update revealing where the event's registration numbers currently stand. While no exact count was given for any of the approximate twenty games to be featured, the current Top 10 have been ordered from highest to lowest.
Why Top 10 instead of Top 8? Because multiple games are currently sharing the same entrant counts at the upper half of the list. And with approximately two months to go before registration closes, it offers a promising outlook on how populated the Mega Center will be when Combo Breaker kicks off.
The current standings for Combo Breaker can be seen in the Twitter post below.
Similar to Evolution 2018's lineup, DragonBall FighterZ is leading all other games in terms of player numbers, with Street Fighter V and Tekken 7 not far behind. Exactly by how far is not clear, however.
Particular attention must be given to another title not featured in the Top 10, however. Out of the twenty games to be featured at Combo Breaker, Mortal Kombat 9 (the first title to be released by NetherRealm Studios since their transition from Midway) will also be present after a four-year hiatus since the final Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament event in 2014, and it has already gained significantly more pre-registered players than it did in UFGTX, according to Rick.
Along with Mortal Kombat 9, Mortal Kombat XL and Injustice 2 will be present at Combo Breaker, as will members of the team responsible for bringing you these amazing games. After all, Combo Breaker regularly takes place in NRS's home territory of Chicago, which is also home to the primary office for Iron Galaxy Studios, who'd completed development for Killer Instinct after the game was transferred to their hands in light of Amazon's decision to purchase Double Helix Studios, the previous developers of the exclusive Xbox title.
Essentially, Combo Breaker is home not only to the hundreds of players participating from inside and outside the United States, but also to the gifted developers who blessed us with the games we enjoy today. It is also considered the endpoint of the Skullgirls Tour, which you can read more about here.
The complete list of games to be featured at Combo Breaker is as follows:
- Killer Instinct ($15,000 pot bonus from KI Ultra Tour)
- Super Smash Bros. Wii-U
- Injustice 2
- Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (Capcom Pro Tour 2018 Premier Event)
