They deserve to have some use, just like the single and dual layer beys get to be used. This format would be good for people who can easily buy Beyblade Burst Turbo beys. But what do you think? Should this be a format? Or am I just crazy for even suggesting this?

Oh dude, thats genius
Thanks!
Did anyone played with these rules? I really like this idea. One of the most enjoyable things in games with a high collectable focus are the random purchases when you see something new or interesting in the stores. Not a fan of ordering everything online and wait for 4 weeks to get it (although if you waited 4 weeks and you forgot what you ordered it's a delightful surprise :'D)

But back to topic. Even though i like the idea of this format i can imagine that the SlingShock mode wouldn't be used very often. In my experience (Videos i saw) the SlingShock gimmick seems to weaken the bey overall. A Bey with SlingShock deactivated seem to have a better winning chance so why should anyone use the SlingShock gimmick? How about a little variation Between the Standard Rules and the SlingShock rules? Don't let the end of a match be determinate by mere Points, i have something in my mind like: A match goes 3 rounds, the winner of the match is the blader with the most points after these 3 round, should it be a draw an additional round is played as long as the match has a winner. Every blader need to activate the SlingShock mode at least for one round, the blader can decide in wich round he or she will use the Slingshock mode.

Or to make the SlingShock gimmick more interesting. Every point done with the Slingshock mode activated brings an additional point. But before changing the rules we need valid experience for the effectivity between SlingShock mode activated and deactivated since all these changes only make sense if my assumption are correct.

Good point. Maybe after some experimental tournaments with this we can decide how to incorporate SlingShock mode. Also, is anyone willing to try a tournament with this format?
I would love that, yall pls do it!

We’d need an organizer, they’d need to get permission to host a tournament with an experimental format. Maybe BoogietheBlader could think about it?
i would do it but 1 i dont think im qualified and 2 no bladers live in my area and nobody knows of my county

Yeah! But last tournament took so long we didn't get to run our 2v2. But I'll see about it for next year.

I'm always down for new/fun formats. People are too competive sometimes and it's fun to do these smaller formats.

Do 2v2 again!
I’m in PA, and I might have time to host an experimental tournament.

That's the plan for next time. First I need more stadiums and judges to make it run faster.

Definitely. You’re like a big Hasbro player.
I like the idea of this format.

I do not think scoring should change based on the drivers mode, and with my limited experience, the driver modes can both be effective or drawbacks - that variability does add more strategy and flavor I think though.

This is pretty good because these beys and stadiums are widely available in the U.S.

Oh ok I made the Slingshock scoring rule because almost everybody would use Battle Ring mode.
