EXPERIMENTAL BURST FORMAT (FULL DECK ROTATION) - 12PM [FREE ENTRY!]
(Unranked + Credits/Faces + Automatic Hasbro Beyblade Burst Giveaway Entry)
BURST FORMAT RULES | DECK ROTATION RULES BELOW
______________________________________________________________

Tired of being stuck with one Beyblade per BeyBattle? Then join the Toronto community on Saturday, November 12th, 2016 to get in on our first Full Deck Rotation Burst Format event in several months: BEYBLADE SWITCH! Not only that, but as a part of our series of experimental events, entry is free, and you can earn a chance to win some great Hasbro Beyblade Burst prizes while you're at it!

Location
We'll be playing in the shelter where we usually play. If you're coming to High Park via the Bloor St. W entrance, just follow that road down on the right side and you'll see the large building/shelter on the left hand side before you reach the tennis courts. If you have any questions about the location, please post here! This map has the area we'll be playing in roughly outlined:


Blader Passport
This experimental Burst Format event is part of a special campaign and is therefore free to play in! No fee or Blader Passport required! Although you do not need it for this event specifically, you may purchase a Blader Passport for $20 CDN–which will grant you entry into all regular WBO events for an entire year, among other benefits.

Experimental Unranked Burst Format Information & Giveaway!
As the launch of Beyblade Burst internationally approaches, we would like to take this opportunity before what will likely be a huge influx of new users to experiment with new rulesets and ideas to make WBO Organized Play more fun to play, easy to organize, standardized, and timely in their execution. As a result, the tournament at this event will be played using new experimental rules and will as a result be unranked. Credits and Faces will still be awarded, however.

The new rules for this tournament will be as is described in this thread, with one exception being that the entire event will be played using Deck Rotation.

Quote:Deck Rotation Format

First Blader to reach 5 points wins.

- Outspin: 1 point
- Stadium Miss/Contactless KO: 1 point
- Knockout: 2 points
- Burst Finish: 2 points

- Each Blader comes to the stadium with 1 to 3 completed Beyblades, referred to collectively as a "deck". There can be no repeated parts within a deck. Before the BeyBattle begins, each player presents their deck to the opponent.

- Both Bladers attach their first Beyblade in secret; the match begins as normal.

- When a Blader wins a round, they have the option to switch their Beyblade for another Beyblade in their deck. However, switching is not mandatory.

- After the round winner has decided if they would like to switch their Beyblade or not, the loser may decide if they would like to switch.

All of these rule changes may or may not be implemented into our regular events in the future. We will be monitoring the results and feedback from this event to help gauge what works and what doesn't. So, by participating in this event not only are you getting a chance to play with some exciting new rules that will certainly shake up how every player approaches their battles and the choices they make, you're helping us to shape the future of the WBO!

As thanks for playing to the best of your ability in this event and helping us make more informed decisions, all participants in this event will be entered into a Hasbro Beyblade Burst Giveaway!

What is Beyblade Burst?
[Image: gnJ23kG.png]
Beyblade Burst is the brand new, third generation of Beyblade by TAKARA-TOMY! It launched in 2015 in Japan and Hasbro recently launched it in Canada in September 2016. If you are not familiar with Beyblade Burst, please take a look at the Beyblade Wiki article covering it, the Beyblade General Forum, and the Beyblade Burst Hasbro Topic for the most up to date information about Hasbro's release of the series internationally.

Don't have any Beyblades from this new series? No problem! It's likely that people will have some on hand for sale, and if not, we would be glad to lend one to you for the duration of the event!

Side Notes

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!

Quote:Sales are First Come, First Served, All Prices in Canadian Dollars

Not sure why you'd only like just the Winder; the Light Launcher is improved and generally better than its past releases, if anything. Eee

Im not so sure about that as mine broke after only using it at 2 events Uncertain
Meanwhile, my Transparent Blue launcher is still a beast from over a year of use! I seriously think that was the best mold of the Light Launchers so far in burst, I don't even know what makes them so good, they're just 1 million times better than the present ones though.
That does seem to be the case. But its a shame that they're only available from the three pack which has gone up in price since its release.

It's not really a "mold", it's just luck. My blue launcher was terrible straight out of the box.

I wish mine was that good because it's so cute! It was great for a while and fit my ~aesthetic~ but I had to retire my blue boy because it started skipping like crazy... RIP.
