ABOUT BEYBLADE NORTH 2018


Beyblade North 2018 brings giveaways and high-speed battles for players of all ages and skill levels! Compete in our tournaments or play free battles just for fun at Anime North 2018 on May 25th for this Metal Fight Limited Format event and on May 26th for our Burst Format event. 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.

If you have any questions about our event itself, please feel free to post them here! Otherwise, for more information about Anime North 2018 in general, please visit their website.

SIDE NOTES

Have your Account page open during registration. Participants being registered to the tournament must login to their accounts on any device able to access the profile page prior to registration in order to prove they are the account owner and to ensure their username is accurately transcribed. Alternatively, you can bring a printed copy of your account page to show the tournament host during registration.

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!




Not sure what to expect? Check out this video and a tournament report from our Anime North events last year:

Whomst has a spare Metal Flat they'd be willing to sell me/let me borrow during the tournament? Mine is pretty loose and I'd prefer not to have to constantly tighten it between battles, haha.
This probably isn't the place to ask, but is the thunder wheel banned in MFB limited? I know that the pre-hybrid Libra is and that the thunder wheel is kinda like the hasbro version of Libra. Thank you.

Thunder is not banned because unlike the PHW Libra, it's too light to be used for defense, making it pretty much outclassed.

hey guys. My 9 year old son is wanting to take part for the first time but has beyblade burst and not metal fusion. Can he borrow it for the competitions there?

Also is the $20 separate to the amount for admission to the Anime north?

He certainly can! That being said, if he has Beyblade Burst I would highly encourage you to come to our event on Saturday if you weren't planning to! It's Burst Format. https://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-BEYBLAD...8-Saturday

The $20 listed in the thread represents the Child - Friday Pass; there is no separate cost for our events at Anime North.

Hey everyone: just as a heads up, I'm planning on recording several of the matches of this event as well as Saturday's event as footage for my YouTube channel, in accordance with the WBO's photography policy:

All Rulebooks – Photography Policy Wrote:By attending any World Beyblade Organization Organized Play Event, you agree as either an organizer, participant, or spectator to potentially be photographed or included by video shot by staff members, organizers, or other participants/spectators.

If you would prefer to not be included in any photographs or videos, please notify the host of the event and they can make an effort to notify the person taking photos and video to minimize your appearance in them as much as possible. However, guarantees of complete exclusion cannot be made given the nature of shooting photos and video at our events (you may still appear in the background depending on the circumstances, for example). We thank you for your understanding in this matter.

If you are attending an event and plan on taking photographs or video, please ensure to do so respectfully and if you are asked to refrain from shooting someone, please make every effort to do so.

However, if you would prefer not to have your matches recorded, please let me know ahead of time either here, by Private Message, or at the tournament itself. I recently had a user contact me requesting to have a video featuring them removed, so I figured I should probably post this in advance.

Can't wait to see you all tomorrow!

Also, for some historical context going into this weekend ... today marks the 10th anniversary of one of the first tournaments in the history of the WBO … BEYBLADE’S NOT DEAD! at Anime North on 5/24/08 in Toronto. View the original video: http://bit.ly/beybladesnotdead

And to mark the anniversary, I've put together a video of uncut footage that I shot from the tournament. Some of it has never been published!

Cool, Ive been meaning to get more of mfb beys.
This tournament has now been processed into the WBO Metal Rankings.

1234beyblade's 5-1 performance has put him a mere four points away from the now retired Hell Kid's all-time high of 1,780 BR for the Metal Rankings. Incredible!
