Ban Hasbro Bearing?

Hasbro Br is very strong Stamina driver, but I think it should only be banned in First Stage. In Final Stage (Deck Format), can only be 1 Br in the Deck, and so I think it can be used there.

You cannot Use Multiple copies of Any Part in your deck.

I know that. I thought that if you can't use Br several times, it will make the thing a little more equal.
Tests thus far have been largely focused on left-spin Hasbro Br combos, but we are also considering an unban on Garuda G3, so it seemed pertinent to do some testing on it as well in tandem with Br:

Test Conditions
- G3 always launched first vs Attack
- Alternating launches for G3 and hS matchup
- BeyLauncher LR + Launcher Grip for X' Attack types unless otherwise noted
- BeyLauncher/BeyLauncher L for G3, mG, hS
- Hard launch for G3/mG against Attack
- Medium/Weak launches for G3 and hS in their matchup

Benchmark
Cho-Z Valkyrie 7 αngle Xtreme Dash vs. Maximum Garuda 0 Star Bearing
超V.7α.X': 5 Wins (5 BF)
mG.0S.Br: 0 Wins
mG Win Percentage: 0%

Test Results
Cho-Z Valkyrie 7 αngle Xtreme vs. Garuda G3 0 Wall Bearing
超V.7α.X: 4 Wins (3 OS, 1 KO)
G3.0W.Br: 6 Wins (6 OS)
G3 Win Percentage: 60%

Cho-Z Valkyrie 7 αngle Hunter Dash vs. Garuda G3 0 Wall Bearing
超V.7α.Hn': 1 Wins (1 OS)
G3.0W.Br: 4 Wins (6 OS)
G3 Win Percentage: 80%

Cho-Z Valkyrie 7 αngle Xtreme Dash vs. Garuda G3 0 Wall Bearing
超V.7α.X': 4 Wins (2 OS, 2 KO)
G3.0W.Br: 1 Wins (1 OS)
G3 Win Percentage: 20%

Cho-Z Valkyrie 7 αngle Xtreme Dash vs. Garuda G3 0 Star Bearing
超V.7α.X': 0 Wins
G3.0S.Br: 5 Wins (5 OS)
G3 Win Percentage: 100%

Hell Salamander 0 Wall Bearing vs. Garuda G3 0 Wall Bearing
hS.0W.Br: 3 Wins (3 OS)
G3.0S.Br: 3 Wins (3 OS)
14 Draws
G3 Win Percentage: 50%

Key Takeaways
  • The mG benchmark demonstrates that it should basically instantly burst versus Attack. But G3 never bursted once in these tests.
  • The Frame on G3 played a pretty big role. Wall was getting knocked around and smashed down pretty easily, especially with Xtreme Dash. Star was much harder for 超V, as the results indicate.
  • Hunter Dash really didn't do much against G3 even with Wall on it ... that's not right. Against TT Bearing I'm certain the result would be much different.
  • The hS and G3 matchup was dead even overall. 14 Draws.
I dont think that we need to ban bearing
