Today, Ultra Arcade’s Brandon “Odinson” Alexander announced that Combo Breaker, set to be held in Chicago this May, has been upgraded to premier status for next year’s Killer Instinct World Cup. Much like Capcom Pro Tour, this means that the first-place finisher will automatically earn a spot in the finals bracket..
Furthermore, as the honorary home of Kombo Klash Chicago, competitors who place in top sixteen at Combo Break will be rewarded with ranking points from the highest tier the circuit has to offer, further helping their chances.
This news come just a week after Alexander revealed that points will also be given to the top ranked online players at the end of each month leading up to main event.
