Hey everyone! We had a week off from the roundup last week while I was at Combo Breaker in Chicago, however, the Community never lets anything slow them down, and we have a ton of great things to share! So here we go!
Zeloxory wins Combo Breaker 2016!
— Combo Breaker (@ComboBreakerFGC) May 29, 2016
Combo Breaker, a large Fighting Game Community tournament, took place this past weekend in Chicago IL, from May 27-29. Brawlhalla had the third highest number of signups at the tournament with almost 200 entrants fighting it out over a $1000 pot bonus. Players from the online community traveled from all over the U.S. to the event, while the EU had a single player who took the trip across the ocean to represent an entire region of Brawlhalla players. That guy from the EU, just so happened to take the whole thing. Zeloxory, a longtime player who picked up Brawlhalla around this time last year, traveled all the way from England to Chicago, played Ember, and never lost a set. If you missed the amazing Top 8 at Combo Breaker you can check it out at this Twitch past broadcast from VGBootCamp at 1:51:00.

And then of course, they made their way to reddit.
(Fun fact: Kor Issues was submitted by our very own [BMG] Tyveris. Who reportedly, just couldn’t help himself.)
