    Combo Breaker 2017 marks the first real Major for Injustice 2, and the first tournament in the Injustice 2 ProSeries 2017, presented by Sony Playstation 4. With well over 300 entrants, the competition was insane considering the game came out not even two weeks ago. The Injustice 2 portion was streamed by NetherRealm's twitch, which I believe is a first for them streaming a tournament. For their first time, I think they did a pretty good job. There were a lot of breaks and the break times were also occasionally lengthy, but that isn't something exclusive to NetherRealm. Also keep in mind, this was a Pro Series event for Injustice 2. It can only get better from here!





    Anyway, onto the action! Top 48 Saturday night to make it to top 16 was refreshingly hype. While there wasn't much character diversity, that is to be expected in a game that is less than two weeks old. Also considering there's legacy characters that also happen to be very strong, almost everyone could have predicted we would be seeing a lot of legacy characters later on in the tournament.


    In the top 48, we saw a lot of upsets and predictable outcomes:



    Then top 16 started! To refresh you memory, this was the top 16 in winners and losers:


    Then the top 16 started! I tried to write up little notes on each match, but it was hard to do while watching. And this is the first time I've covered the finals for any tournament or game. Anyway, below in the spoiler tag is notes on each matchup in the top 16 WINNERS portion of Combo Breaker 2017!




    To recap for Top 16 winners:

    - Sonic Fox beats Forever King [ 3-2 ]

    - Tekken Master beats Noobe [ 3-2 ]

    -Biohazard beats DJT 3-0
    -Hayatei beats Compbros 3-2
