During this weekend of May 2020, the Combo Breaker retrospective stream is going on in lieu of the tournament due to Covid shutdowns. The Fighting Game Community reminisced and shared the many hype moments and matches that happened over the last 5 years of CB. One of the moments shared is this explosive eruption of support for a money match win for Sheila “dapurplesharpie” Moore.
Sharpie explains that the two were talking a lot of trash on Twitter about their skill levels and decided to set up a money match. The loser has to play for the 6 months following as Solo Fukua. This was significant because this was when they were deep into the competitive scene and they both hated playing as this character with a passion. Losing this match would essentially handicap them for their tournament life and possibly stunt their growth as a player for half a year. They set up the match at Combo Breaker 2016 and the rest is history.
