SOULCALIBUR VI Results – Combo Breaker 2022
Regardless of winning or losing, their souls still burn!

What more can enjoyers of SoulCalibur VI ask for, having been limited to primarily online competitions for about two years? That's right; Combo Breaker 2022 brings back the nostalgia of competing in a supercharged atmosphere similar to the vibes you get watching a football match in a packed stadium, and yes, we missed it all, the fun, the pressure, the rivalries, the respect, the upsets, the physical interactions, and lasting impressions, all condensed into a single weekend.

SoulCalibur VI is a chapter of the Combo Breaker 2022 story, a story with its roots in the FGC where there are no protagonists or antagonists, and a fun story. These are the highlights of the SoulCalibur VI Top 8 chapter of Combo Breaker 2022.

SCVI at Combo Breaker 2022: Overview 

The tournament mainly consisted of North American entrants and a negligible number of Internationals, who battled it out in the Pool stages, Top 16, and Top 8 brackets. Notable entrants like Boom, Incendiate, Jeo, OmegaXcn, Novamage, Toothpaste, RipCityOutlaw, and Ganondeurf made it to the top 8.
