ABOUT BEYBLADE NORTH 2018

Compete in our tournaments or play free battles just for fun at Anime North 2018 on May 25th, and for this Burst Format event on May 26th. 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.

Final Prizes/Shop Stock TBD

The fun doesn’t stop with just our tournaments! Stay tuned for details in the coming months regarding the giveaways and contests we will be running throughout Friday and Saturday at BEYBLADE NORTH 2018!

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 and Saturday at all of our events during Anime North), too!

We also plan to have a limited amount of Beyblade Burst in stock for our shop to help any players looking to improve their collection or pick up their first Beyblade (hopefully to use in the tournament!).




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!

Not this year, sorry! Just regular Burst Format for this event.
Ok, good to know. Thanks Kei!!!
Aw, no MFB Standard or Zero-G? In any case, I'll be there. Got my flight, convention ticket, & housing booked already ~

Nope, sorry! We are scaling things back this year a little bit in terms of the number of events being held so that we can ensure they are as great as they can be. It also will open up more time on Sunday to just hang out with everyone for the morning and enjoy the convention. In previous years it was just go-go-go for the whole weekend, which while fun, was exhausting and maybe a bit too much Beyblade by the third day haha.

We also chose Burst and Metal Fight Limited as the formats as they are the two most accessible with the highest number of not only players, but players who might have competitive parts available to use when they play. MFB and ZRG are fun, but they aren't as accessible to newcomers because not many people bought everything up until the end of that series.

Awesome! Looking forward to meeting you.

Ah, fair enough. Well I'll definitely be hanging around for most of the day Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and might bring my Zero-G stadium for a little free play :) I'll also be getting in Thursday afternoon so if anyone wants to meet up that night I'd be down. Can't wait to finally meet everyone in Toronto!

This one is Burst. You can tell by the box listing "Burst Format" in the top right of the page.

But we have a Metal Fusion tournament the day before this too at Anime North. You can find the details here: https://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-BEYBLAD...018-Friday

You will have to purchase a pass for the convention. Anime North policy states that children ages 13 and under need to be accompanied by an adult who is 18 years of age or older:

Anime North Website Wrote:Children 6 to 13 years of age are admitted for half-price of the corresponding single admission adult prices, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or over. Child prices are not applied to group admissions.

Children aged 5 and under are admitted free, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or over.

There is an attendance cap on the convention, so in order for Anime North to be better able to control the crowds and total attendance numbers, every person needs to pay for admission (which grants you entrance to not only this tournament but the entire convention!).
Can you buy tickets at the convention?

Tickets typically sell out for Anime North due to the attendance cap, but it is possible there would be some Saturday tickets available ... I wouldn't recommend betting on that if you want to be certain you can attend, though!
Are participants allowed to bring/use Hasbro beyblades, and do participants need a beylogger in order to register?

You don’t need a bey logger to participate in the tournament. But you just have to pay for the ticket to go to the convention and tournament
