Hey World Bladers!


We've got a few small announcements piling up, so we'll begin with the much awaited BeyLotto and #BeySelfie winners, and then you'll see a couple of Organized Play-related news. They're mostly things that we already discussed or mentioned in the past, but we are officializing them properly.

We had some amazing entries this year, it was awesome seeing all the different styles but, most of all, the pride you guys had in taking a Beyblade-related photograph with yourself in it!

Many thanks for participating! We so wish that the winner could have been determined by us for their creativity, but it's all down to luck, so let's see who won this magnificent Xcalibur Force Xtreme Gold Ver. ...

Congratulations to all the winners, once again!




BeyDays was a blast thanks to all of you. What did you all like about this year's BeyDays? What would you change?





Over the past eight years, many hundreds of tournaments have been hosted, and without much trouble at that. Since we are all just fans dedicating an insane amount of time to this hobby, of course we accomodate and make modifications along the way to make things better for the community overall.

With the bright future of Beyblade Burst's globalization right on the horizon in mind, we wish to formally announce some rules that have been implicit so far, and also introduce a change that will probably please quite a few Bladers!


Blader Passport price decrease for Indian Members

Remember how we announced a few months ago that the Blader Passport would now cost $15 US?

In retrospective, we've decided to take into consideration that some countries' economies were too low and that this increase of value was actually detrimental and tournaments were less likely to take place there due to the new price.

We have therefore decided to modulate the cost of the Blader Passport for our longterm Indian community: for you guys, it'll be only $10 US, effective immediately!

We hope that you guys continue to show your Beyblade Spirit in tournaments for many years to come still!

If there are ever areas with a similar economical situation, we will of course consider giving them the same priviledge.



Multiple Tournaments Per Day

There are some occurences we have tolerated in the past without complaining too much, but as we keep growing, we have to step in when we're expected to make things fair for everyone globally. Unfortunately, sometimes that translates in some moderating moves like the following.

A maximum of two events can be held per day. Only special occasions or instances where something will definitely stop a region from holding more events in the subsequent months will justify organising more tournaments in one day. This is essentially a sister rule to the 8-Credit limit per weekend anyway, which some ran into when playing in more than two tournaments per weekend already!

Entry fees for side events cannot be collected at WBO sanctioned tournaments. While we appreciate the efforts of organizers who want to do something special, because we cannot oversee these events nor ensure that attendees understand they are completely separate from the WBO, we have to ask that organizers refrain from hosting side-events that charge fees separate from the usual WBO tournament fees. We encourage organizers who want to do something extra at their events to work with us.



Official Prize Reimbursement Guideline

While we've always been applying reimbursement for prizes equally or proportionally to all regions and instances, it's something we never actually wrote down and announced, so here you go!
  • 8-12 players: $20
  • 13-17 players: $30
  • 18-24 players: $40
  • 25-30 Players: $60
  • 31-40 Players: $70
  • 41+ Players: $80
  • Exceptions are made for major events (e.g. conventions). Reimbursement amounts are per day, not per tournament.

Small variations may be allowed, and of course a lesser amount can be asked as reimbursement, but you should expect this sort of ranges globally. It also helps if you collect more single entry fees and, in other words, attract new Bladers to your tournaments!




That's it for now, but stay tuned for a lot more news coming up soon!

I would like face booster Driver Please Smile.

This definitely makes the last few days better.
thanks Kai-V

Congrats all winners [esspecially ronitnath and Wombat]


I will take Face Booster Ruby
Cake
Congrats to all the winners!

I'd like Face Booster VIVID, please!
Wombat
ayy second place again

Thanks for getting this done so quickly this year, Kai-V. Congrats to all the winners, especially Wizard and geetster! Some pretty fire BeySelfies too. I'll take Face Booster Ruby please.

Congrats to the winners! Hopefully next year I'll have the opportunity to participate in a Beydays event myself Smile

Not sure if it's intentional, but I just want to point out that there's a gap in the prize reimbursement table between 8-12 & 18-24. I'm guessing 13-17 would be around $30?
Ah thank you so much! I also want to say congrats to the other winners!!! So proud of them all! :')

As for the Face Booster, I'll like to get the Face Booster VIVID. Thanks so much again! It was really fun participating! Smile

I knew that Wizard's entry was a winner as soon as I saw it, randomly chosen or not. Those are the eyes of a champion.
Manicben
Congrats to the winners!
On a side note, I think this may be the first time I haven't won something loool.
At least I had the satisfaction of hosting, meeting new and old members at BeyDays. Here's to many more to come!
Thanks WBO for this amazing contest!
Congrats to all the winners!
If the winner wasn't randomly selected I am sure briskaquario HD would have won!
And yeah I want face booster onyx

We are a whole month later, but I suppose that I did tally things up as soon as everything was submitted. Still, was I a lot later in previous years hah?

Hm, or it may be that 13-24 gets forty dollars. Let us verify what the intent was, perhaps I simply forgot to insert that part into the list because it had been written in text rather than in list form.

Onyx and vivid Smile

Sheeyoot! I never knew that we could be reimbursed for tournament prizes. I guess that doesn't pertain to past events by any chance?

Anyways, congrats to everyone! Hopefully, this spells a good year for the WBO!
Kai-V
Ah, it says so in the Event Guide hah. Unfortunately I am not certain if it could be done retroactively. It is actually less complicated if Organizers talk with us before the tournament and before purchasing anything so that we can determine what the total amount we could reimburse is, and then, after the event, they only send us the difference between that amount and the amount of funds collected at the tournament.
ThaKingTai
Yo, this is so awesome! I never win anything! Wait, I did win the Zankye X WBO giveaway, so...

But anyways, thank you so much! This has overall been great from the tournament itself to now. I hosted my first tournament, got second place, and now this!

I'll take the VIVID please!


EDIT: On behalf of Tireni123, (my cousin) I'll claim the face booster DRIVER, for him.
(Earthwolf1404 can verify that Tireni123 is my cousin)
Thanks Kai-V and the beyblade community for this awesome BeyDay. Looking forward to more ahead. You people Rock. I would love to have Face Booster RUBY.

Guess What, I still can't believe that I am a Physical Prize winner. WBO is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Unfortunately, the Face really has to go to the person who won it. But sure, we can give him a Face Booster DRIVER, and you can trade afterwards if you want.


You guys should be thanking the whole Committee, not just the person posting the announcement hah.
Yami
Awwwwwww I never win anything ;-;

<---- Does this host get anything special instead :o

Congrats to everyone that won the prizes! Hopefully my Maryland people will come on and claim their prize.

Thanks to all the Committee Member for making it happen again this year!
