First & Final Stage Battle Formats
The First Stage of this tournament will be played using the WBBA 3on3 Battle Format as described below.

The Final Stage will be played using WBO Deck Format.

WBBA 3on3 Battle Format Rules Wrote:
[Image: aunbxVE.png]

WBBA 3on3 Battle Format Rules
This tournament will be played using an experimental non-WBO ruleset for the matches played: WBBA’s 3on3 Battle Format. This format is used by TAKARA-TOMY for some of their events in Asia. The rules are as follows:

1. Matches are to 3 points
Outspin = 1 Point
Knock Out = 1 Point
Burst = 2 Points

2. Deck Construction: 3 Beyblades
Each player constructs a deck consisting of 3 Beyblades. No parts may be repeated throughout each combination. The same rules from WBO’s Deck Format for repeating parts will apply (see the WBO Burst Format rulebook).

3. Inspection & Deck Sequencing
After inspection by the judge, each player will secretly place each of their combinations into one of the three numbered slots in their deck box (pictured above).

We will have these available to borrow at the event, but please bring your own if you have one.

4. Perform Battles in Sequence
Players perform battles following the sequence of the Beyblades in their deck box until one player scores 3 total points. This means for example that the Beyblades in the #1 slot will play each other, followed by #2 vs #2, and #3 vs. #3.

5. Ties
  • If there is a tie at any point, the match will be replayed using the same two Beyblades. This may continue for up to three consecutive rounds.
  • If after the third consecutive tie a winner cannot be determined, players are to advance to the next Beyblade in their deck or initiate the re-order sequence described below and start a new round.
  • If neither player has earned 3 Points after all three match-ups have been played between all three Beyblades in each deck, players will re-order their entire deck in secret and then repeat step number four ("Perform Battles in Sequence") until one player has earned 3 Points to determine the match winner.

Note: All other existing WBO Burst Format rules unrelated to the match ruleset outlined above will apply for this event.

I mean ... I can't predict the future entirely haha. But things are looking relatively good right now in terms of our COVID-19 numbers, so I would imagine that we will continue with Phase 2 of the government's reopening plan at the very least for the time being, which allows us to have outdoor gatherings of up to 25 people.

Will there be an increased participant capacity when Ontario begins Stage 3?

I don't think they've defined the precise amount that will be permitted in Stage 3, but yes we'll have the ability to increase participant capacity when we get there.

Hey everyone, one other quick announcement about this event: we will be testing out a new definition for "Play Area" and "Knocked-Out", as described below. In our current rulebook "Play Area" was actually never explicitly defined and our "Knocked-Out" definition has been in consideration for a while now for some changes to make it clearer and easier to judge.

Play Area & Knocked-Out Experimental Ruling Wrote:Play Area
The Play Area is the space within the perimeter of the stadium, starting at the point which any exits, pockets, walls, or stadium cover openings begin (if they exist).

Knocked-Out
A Beyblade is knocked-out when after being launched:
  1. It does not enter the Play Area OR
  2. It fully exits the Play Area OR
  3. It partially exits the Play Area and does not return.

The above doesn't spell it out explicitly, but the one key takeaway here for any players who have played in our events before is that this ruling abolishes the current ruling in the Burst BeyStadium Standard Type that causes Beyblades to be counted as knocked-out when they hit the back wall of the stadium cover and bounce back in. With this rule, if you get knocked back and hit the back wall of the stadium cover in one of the exits but then return to the main play area, you're still in-play.

This particular definition is not necessarily the one that will ultimately be implemented into ranked WBO Organized Play events; it's simply one of the current proposals. There will likely be other variants we try down the road as well so that we can gather more real-world data and impressions about this change to a fundamental part of how the game operates.

If anyone has any questions about this, let me know. I'll be curious to hear what you all think about it after this event.
I dont have a ride to get there i will try my best to make it to the next tournament when you guys do another tournament again
I'm excited! Sorry I haven't been posting, I'll see you guys in the morning Smile

I will be doing a report for this tournament on my blog BeyBase, so stay tuned for that.

Also, most likely we’ll make a decision about our next tournament over the coming week, so keep an eye out for that as well.

Hey everyone! Just wondering, if any of you have time could you share some of your thoughts on the WBBA 3on3 Battle Format we used for this standard Burst Format tournament and/or Pick 3, Choose 1 format that we used for the Burst Limited event here? https://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Thought...pid1776281

Also, I'd like to get some feedback on the new Play Area/KO rule that we tested if possible. You can post that here.

What did you like and dislike about these things and why?

Thank you!
I posted on the original thread there for my thoughts on the 3ON3 or P3C1, as far as the new KO rule goes I prefer it, it certainly works well for these big beys and makes judging easier.

Also gives beys more chances to survive so that's pretty good.

What we tested was this:
"With this rule, if you get knocked back and hit the back wall of the stadium cover in one of the exits but then return to the main play area, you're still in-play."
originalzankye If we move to it still being in play that would be GREAT in my opinion. Can rule out a lot of slow mo replays and make battles more exciting with come back burst! I’ve had rage bounce from that back wall and demolish the opposing Bey several times.

The WBBA 3on3 was very fun I really enjoyed it!
I really enjoyed the diversity of the 3 on 3 battles, but I also felt like it diminished the ability to really perfect your play style with any one bey which to me has been a corner stone of good blading. Its difficult to really get a sense of if you are playing well, or if you just happen to have better parts in any given match. It seems a bit luck of the draw rather than deliberate strategy. Which is exciting and fun, but ultimately didn't tell me anything about any of my combinations. The only rounds I won were with a totally on the spot random combination and not with the bey I had actually prepared to battle with. 

The pick 3 choose one format is fine but it seemed to drag the tournament out a lot and I think that will be challenging for any larger event.

 The new rules on KOs just seem logical, if the bey is still spinning it shouldnt matter if it bounces back, I thought that was the whole point of these new walled stadiums.
