ABOUT BEYBLADE NORTH


Beyblade North 2017 brings a full weekend’s worth of giveaways and high-speed battles, with new activities every single day at Anime North from May 26 – 28! Compete in up to 4 tournaments or play free battles just for fun. Even if you’re new to the game, our expert bladers will give you hands-on training and equipment to battle with.

To play in our events, you will need to purchase a single day or weekend pass for Anime North, which also grants you access to the rest of the convention. Purchase tickets here before they sell out! Weekend passes in particular routinely sell out before the convention.

Saturday — 10:30 AM to 6 PM
  • Beyblade Burst Tournament: 11:30AM Registration, 12:00PM Start


MAY 26 & 28: ADDITIONAL EVENTS


Our booth will be open for the majority of convention hours across all three days. We'll be running at least one tournament on each day, with the remainder of time dedicated to free play, side events, and training for new and intermediate Bladers.

Friday — 6 to 9 PM Sunday — 10 AM to 3 PM

LOCATION: TORONTO CONGRESS CENTRE - HALL B


All BEYBLADE NORTH 2017 events will be hosted in our space at the back of Hall B in the Toronto Congress Centre. Please see the highlighted areas on the maps below:

GIVEAWAYS – BEYRAFFLE & INSTAGRAM CONTEST (DETAILS COMING SOON)


The fun doesn’t stop with just our tournaments all weekend! Stay tuned for details in the coming months regarding the giveaways and a special Instagram contest we will be running throughout the weekend at BEYBLADE NORTH 2017!

Thanks so much to Hasbro for these prizes they've donated for Beyblade North 2017! Come compete with us for your chance to win prizes not only by placing in tournaments, but by entering contests and random giveaways all weekend (throughout Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at all of our events during Anime North), too!

Can't attend Beyblade North? No sweat! We'll be distributing prizes to visiting tournament organizers who can attend, so the Beyblades can be won at tournaments back home.



SIDE NOTES

No Bey? No prob!: Don't have any Beyblades? No problem! We would be happy to lend a Beyblade and launcher to you to use at each of your matches!


Please be aware of your belongings: We'd advise users to please, please look after your stuff. While yes this is a Beyblade tournament and we're not suggesting that any of us would attempt to take each other's stuff it is still happening at a public venue where other people (who may not be so friendly) are going to be present as well. Of course, if you see a personal belonging lying around bring it up any of the judges so we can return it to the right person. Your co-operation is appreciated!

All players must arrive on-time: If you do not arrive at the scheduled start time, you risk being excluded from the tournament. The software we use to run our events–Challonge–does not allow us to add in extra participants once the tournament has started.

If you know in advance that you will be late, please post in this thread or contact someone at the event and depending on the circumstances we can perhaps still include you if we know you will arrive soon.

All questions for this tournament may be asked in this thread!

Weird that there are so few replies when it is less than two months away.

It helps that people don't have to reply to register anymore haha, but yes it's quite strange! I anticipate a great turn out considering Burst has launched internationally now, though. If we can pull in 20 or more for our A&C Games events lately, we can certainly do even better at AN like we have for the past near decade.

And I just got confirmation on what our prizing budget will be this year, so I'm starting to put together a list of prizes for each event, our BeyRaffle, and Instagram Contest at AN this year. If anyone has a wish list of items they think would be cool to have as prizes, let me know ASAP! Can't guarantee anything, but I'll try. Smile

Unfortunately, no. This particular contest is going to be based on something that can only be done at the convention. Sorry! Details coming soon ...
Are there any beyblade bursts that are banned from tournaments? Are beyblade such as Zillion Zeus ban from tournament play?

No Beys are banned in the tournament, since I think the ban on Odin was lifted.
I just saw that this tournament was ranked does that mean I have to get something special?

Not at all, it just means that you will receive BeyPoints and a rank once this tournament is processed. So you gain rather than having anything to purchase hah. Well, besides having to be able to enter the convention by buying a weekend or Saturday pass, of course, but that is sort of implied already.
Hey is anyone selling just wanted to know

I can't come.

I do have the B-70 Sword Launcher Blue right now, but I may or may not have that by the time AN comes around. I may have some starters and probably the new Left Light Launcher, though. If I don't end up having any, you can definitely borrow a launcher from someone for the tournaments at AN!

As always, I'll be there early in the afternoon on Friday!

Thanks Kei i'm a really big fan and i found my launcher
Im really new what does ranking mean??
Kei

It means the battles played in this tournament will be counted for our Worldwide Rankings (for Burst)! Our system is currently undergoing maintenance so it is a bit out of date, but you can see the rankings here: https://worldbeyblade.org/rankings

All players start with 1000 BP and gain or lose points depending on whether they win or lose matches at tournaments.
So Kei can i still go idk what kinda ranking i am
