After each event, player battles are processed into the rankings so they can see where they stand not only within their local community, but worldwide.

Players can also track their individual match history on their user profiles.






3. There are no age limits
We’ve always believed that Beyblade is a game which can be appreciated by all-ages, and that’s why all of our tournaments have always been–and always will be–open to all to compete and have fun.

5. Tournament players can earn Bits for their profiles
Bits are cool collectible badges that are added to your profile and show on each of your posts. Players can showcase their skill and community involvement by collecting Bits at WBO tournaments!

Bits for Winning Tournaments

Players can earn a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Bit for placing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in regular tournaments (8+ participants).

Bits for Winning Club Format Tournaments

Players can earn the Club Master, Club Champion, and Club Ace Bits for accumulating wins in our free Club Format events (4-7 participants).

Bits for Accumulating Tournament Wins

Players can earn Bits like the Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, and Onyx Bits for accumulating wins over several tournaments.

And there’s many more!






6. Use the most competitive tournament systems
We value how much fun Beyblade can be to play, but we also know that the most fun way to play for many of our members is to do so competitively!

All WBO tournaments are run using an industry standard tournament software called Challonge.

That’s why we employ some of the most competitive and standard tournament systems used for competitive games around the world: Round Robin, Swiss, and Double Elimination. We also offer solutions for smaller events (4-7 participants) through our Club Format and a highly strategic, exciting spin on the classic Beyblade Deck Format for the final stages of our larger events that offers more player agency than the system used by TAKARA-TOMY.
