BEY BLAZE

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 9, 2010.


Date: January 9, 2010, 12PM Onwards.

Venue: A Park in Essendon called Lincoln Park. We will all meet up outside the Essendon Train Station at 12:00 PM and wait for everyone until 12:30 PM, once everyone is there we will all walk down to the park together, unless you know how to get to the park, you can go directly to the park if you would prefer that.

Expected Turnout: We are expecting about 15 people at the moment.

Format: Open Format, Round Robin System.

This time round we're expecting a lot more people to show up, and we already have over 10 people confirmed coming. This time the event will be held in Essendon as many bladers in Melbourne live near Essendon, and it's a nice location.

I'm the person that usually organizes tournaments in Sydney. There are a lot of Sydney bladers Smile Shame you can't make it.. Uncertain
no libras please Smile
Libra can be defeated quite easily with a good stamina combo... So I'm going to allow it, that's if anyone even uses it.

omg. Did you even read the thread?

Probably not...
I did. But in my opinion Libra isn't that unstoppable. People just assume it is cause many people are using attack combos and they won't work on Libra. I've tested many stamina combos against Libra and they all have the advantage. Defense beats attack, Stamina beats Defense, and Attack beats Stamina.
but like brad said we dont want beyblade to turn into a game of Rock Paper Scissors

It all depends on skill and customization.
I've just emailed and Pm'd 3 Melbourne Beybladers that weren't on the list so hopefully they can go ...

Ugh, can you please read the topic before spouting off stuff like this? Nobody is saying that Libra can't be defeated; of course I know it can. The problem is that the entire game revolves around beating Libra, and that's ridiculous.

As for "skill and customization", well 1. there is no skill involved in using a Defense-type, just pre-match tactics which I doubt 90% of you even know how to do (ask anyone I've battled in a tournament), and 2. Libra has homogenized customizations entirely. I managed to break the mold with LLDragoCH120RF and LibraCH120RF but even then those combos are centered entirely around KOing Libra anyway. We've forgotten how to make Beyblades that can perform well in most scenarios because we're obsessed with killing Libra.

Read Hiro Ayami's posts about the Japanese metagame. That's the sort of metagame we should have.

Nothing makes me angrier than people saying this stuff without making any effort to understand the situation, and then using my own content as a point against me.
I already said I have read the thread... I've read it many times. I find it completely stupid if everyone is only thinking about beating Libra, it is easy to beat.

And I seriously doubt anyone will be using Libra in this tournament, it's not very original.
Edited the OP, Tan has been added to the list.
i dont think unoriginality would stop anyone using a certain blade for the simple fact that the unoriginal ones are usually the best and have been proven to be good
Just out of curiosity, is anyone going to be selling any Beyblades?

The way you say it, it sounds like your planing on using Libra.
lol no but I am using an unoriginal blade... Wink
(I am not a libra noob)

Hmmm if you're not using libra then that leaves five of the competative combos left...are you using attack or stamina?
well wouldn't you like to know Joyful_3

Will there be prizes? Also i can make some donations if there are.

I think its a little late for that now unfortunately the only prizes anyone would want would be beyblade related and MFB things will take too long to ship in. :\
Alright the Libra wheel is banned for this tournament.

Please read the OP, there are prizes. I will be awarding the 3 winners MFB prizes. I have nt purchased them yet, because I will ask each winner what blade they would like and I will post it directly to the winner's address.

Sorry Robsta can't check right now I'm on my mobile and it doesn't support Google Maps, I will check tomorrow morning.

Any other questions feel free to ask.

That's awesome Grin. I know what Beyblade I'm getting if I win. Also, in case if any of my MFB get mixed up a drew a small black line on the wheels.

Yay! I can help pay for them if you want.
Also heres the weather forecast for saturday.

Forecast for Saturday
Sunny. Winds north to northwesterly averaging 20 to 35 km/h tending southwesterly during the afternoon.
City Sunny. Min 21 Max 38.

I just hope it dosent go higher, then it might really be a "blaze".
Thanks Chaos Blader, I appreciate it Joyful_3

I named it BEY BLAZE because it's in summer, and Australia is very very hot in summer.

OP will be edited shortly, needs a lot of work xD
