BeyDays 2017: Events, Ruling Updates, #BeybladeInAction contest, and BeyLotto!


Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's BeyDays, and it's soaring into regions near you!

With last year's double weekend being so popular, we're back again for more! BeyDays will again be active across two weekends, so you have no excuses for being too busy to attend an event! We're doing it for you guys!

As with last year, each region may only organise BeyDays events during one of the two weekends. Events held on the other weekend will not be counted towards any of our BeyDays festivities! Sorry!

But which regions are running BeyDays events? Well, feast your eyes on this selection!

As always, participants at any of these BeyDays events will grab you a shiny new Bit of Days VIII! Oooo!


If you're in the area and free to join one of these events, be sure to hit the "Join Tournament" button on that tournament's thread! BeyDays events are always a blast, so don't pass up this opportunity!

Don't see your region up there? You still have time! Gather some Bladers and submit an Event proposal! And don't forget...

Waived Credit Limit

As usual, all BeyDays events are exempt from the limit of Credits of 8 per weekend. That way, there's no limit to your dedication to Beyblade!

Waived Entry Fee for Emerging Areas

Any region that has been unable to host a tournament in the last 6 months will see the entry fee waived for its Bladers on this occasion!

Extra Prize Reimbursement for Raffles!

That's right, we're doubling the prize reimbursement for BeyDays events! 

As part of this promotion, we expect Organisers to use some of this to run a BeyRaffle at their events, with one random participant winning the prize chosen by the Organiser!

This only applies to one event in each region, so make sure you're making the most of this! Get that raffle going!



Ruling Updates: Rule Clarifications & Deathscyther/Dark Deathscyther Ban

You all gave your opinions, and we wholeheartedly agree. As of today, Deathscyther & Dark Deathscyther are now banned in WBO Competitive Play! This was long overdue, but we feel this is the best choice to return to a healthy metagame.

Alongside this, we've also taken the opportunity to clarify a number of rules in both our Organiser's Guide and our format-specific rulebooks, including more information of foreign substances, regulations on launcher checking and more!

Hop on over to Kei's update post for more information on all of these new rulings! Organisers, make sure you're aware of these changes as they'll be effective as of Monday 15th May!



Instagram Campaign: Beyblade in Action!

Following the success of our previous Instagram campaigns, we're back again with another one: Beyblade in Action!

It's simple! Until June 4th, post a picture of a Beyblade in action to your Instagram account! It could be a perspective shot of an intense battle, or even a mid-air shot of a Beyblade in motion! As long as it's in action, use your imagination and go for it!

Of course, we're setting a few rules for this event:
  • Keep the photograph appropriate for all ages
  • Incorporate something clearly Beyblade-related
  • Only one entry per person. Your first entry will be the only one we'll accept, but think carefully before your submit your entry!
  • You must be following the official @WorldBeyblade Instagram account

One lucky winner will get their hands on a Thief Phoenix E230GCF, courtesy of ashton pinto! What a guy!

Of course, as countries add events, we'll add them to this list, and also the flags to the BeyDays logo as well!

Doubling the reimbursement amount is definitely generous, though I'd like to point out that we do mention a raffle there. We do expect part of this reimbursement amount to go towards a raffle prize for a random participant, haha. Other than that, make you're making the most of this opportunity!
If we organise a club tournament then would we be able to enter?

Yes, Club Events will indeed count towards the BeyLotto, but only for one of the 30 Bit Boosters. There are other methods available to earn full entries though, such as the "Beyblade in Action!" campaign! Smile

If I go to a WBBA event on BeyDays, can I have the BeyDays face? Tongue_out

Also June 3rd is a Saturday, not a Sunday.
Yooo can't wait for the NY tournament if it happens lol. i should submit some footage from that if i can

And if we shoot a video of that tournament would the points count?

I honestly do t see why not @[~Mana~] can you confirm
I can't understand what you mean to say.

There's no reason why it shouldn't

The vast majority in the D and D2 banning thread only wanted D2 to be banned though so you didn't really "agree" with their views....

I think you're picking on the details a little bit here. Obviously, we've agreed on D2 hugely, but there were honest concerns regarding D that we honestly agree with as well. Even amongst the committee, some of us honestly weren't sold on banning D either, but we're giving it a try.

Right now, we feel it's in the best interests of the community to explore a metagame without either included. It'll be a fresh experience for a lot of people and it'll give us insight into the differences the lack of those Layers make. Naturally, we're already fully prepared to unban D next month if we feel it should no longer necessary but, in the short term, we're giving it a try.

We don't expect everyone to be happy with this decision. There were some very mixed opinions but, for the reasons mentioned above, we're giving it a try to find a place for Deathscyther once and for all.

Yes, footage submission will count as a full entry.
Dark_Mousy
The fact d & d2 are now banned makes me happier then you know. Time to spam Odin and Lost Longius
Thunder Dome
HAHA! Eat dirt Deathscyther and Deathscyther 2. Gaze upon your ultimate defeat; mourn the collapse of your tyrannical reign; hear the resounding cry of justice; RAISE YOUR EYES HEAVENWARD AND BEHOLD THE INEFFABLE GLORY OF FREEDOM!!!

I can now finally end my Beyblade career in peace
Quick Question. In case if I host a event on June 5th, would it be eligible for Unlimited Credit and BeyLotto Entry for New Bladers (who didn't came at last).

Also by Beyblade In Action, it means I have to make video or GIF or have to take photo of moving beys like MJ9 did.
There is gonna be someday, a tournament on portugal (or madeira island)?

No, June 5th is beyond the end date for the campaign.

Beyblade in Action entry must be a photo, as stated in the OP.

My entry. Was thinking of something better than that but couldn't shoot it cause of not having a good quality camera.
Happy Beydays 2017! I should be there at the next tournament in Mumbai.

On a second thought, I think this years beydays is not getting much attention although WBO is on social media etc (Maybe Im Wrong)
