We’re really excited to visit Maryland and host our first tournament in the area! It’s going to be great to see some old friends and meet new ones!!!

We are gonna use Single Blader Format for this event, with the DB stadium.

It should be a decent amount of fun and excitement with trying something new 😎. 

As mentioned this is our first MD event so we plan to arrive super early to set up and have things in order. We hope to secure the pavilion as well. Please arrive around 11am so we can get everyone officially registered and start at noon.

I have got to get back my FGC first place! Smile

I just read over the rules, this is going to be epic!
I'mma definitely try to make it to this Tourney, Nightwing, Lj, watch out cause this Dragon blader is coming in full BLAZING
Heads up folks, Drift is apparently banned outside of Finals (edit: on double spin layers) under the FGC ruleset in single blader format! And spin direction change is allowed one time per match instead of zero times!

https://four-gaming.com/pages/team-blader-format
You are going to be VERY CONFUSED.

So, how many Single Blader rounds will be played, and how many Team Blader rounds will be played? How are the teams constructed, by choice, or randomly, or some other method?

Will there be a finals round, and if so, what will be the criteria for participation?
I definitely need to know cause this is the first ever kind of event-based tourney I've ever been to

It's only banned on dual spin beys like Astral and world or Master

Hey DC,

As Allen mentioned Drift is only banned on dual spin layers for pre finals. 

What I’d like to do the day of the event is have 3 rounds for team Blader format. Really just to showcase the format. Bladers can choose there own team of 3 and for players who may come alone I’ll draft teams for them.

I’d like to do 5 rounds of single Blader format with an added finals round. But this all depends on time. Single Blader format should move quickly. Everything will depend when things kick off and the amount of participants. 

I will go over everything the day of the event also, so no one is confused. I like to keep things simple. The rules may seem complicated but I’ll explain everything simply.
You're correct, I missed the dual layer caveat on that somehow.

Well, 3 rounds team without finals, and 5 rounds single with finals? I guess so?

If you need extra judges, I can certainly try, as long as I double check the format rules carefully. Or you may choose not to have me judge; also valid!

You’re perfectly fine to judge. I’m gonna need the help. Wins are still wins. I really appreciate the help.

Yes, part of the event is teams. The format is similar to how they played teams in Beyblade Burst God/Evolution

It’s ok, no one has ever done this style of tournament before. So it’ll be something new and hopefully exciting for everyone 😊
