Combo Breaker 2020 joins the long list of events and conferences canceled due to the coronavirus epidemic.
Rick "The Hadou" Thiher, Event Director for Combo Breaker LLC, released a lengthy statement regarding the cancellation of the event and details on refunding. Here is a portion of that statement:
The COMBO BREAKER team is gutted to announce that, following government guidance and our own judgment regarding COVID-19, COMBO BREAKER 2020 is cancelled. We recognize the significant impact this decision has on our attendees, partners, sponsors, staff, venue, and community, but believe it is currently the only move to make. May we collectively make it through this difficult time as passionately as when we all began. The next wave of COMBO BREAKER promotions was all set to launch this week, including a kickoff announcement that COMBO BREAKER 2020 would once again be powered by ASTRO Gaming. COMBO BREAKER's ongoing partnership with ASTRO played a big part of how we were able to secure the Schaumburg Convention Center as our venue this year.
Combo Breaker is an event that the entire FGC looks forward to each year. But, 2020 and the coronavirus have seen to the cancellation of tons of events across esports.
