Hey everyone, can I please get your confirmation here in this thread whether you will be attending by yourself or with someone else (parent/guardian/friend/etc)? Confirming this is a requirement mentioned in the event description and I may need to remove you if you cannot confirm.

Due to Ontario's COVID-19 regulations we will need to make sure there is 25 or less total people at this event, so I'd like to know ahead of time how many people will be there.

There is also a few other people who may want to join this event, so if I can confirm we will have less than 25 people there with the current participant list I may be able to add one or two more spots.

Thank you!
It’s just gonna be me and my dad
I’ll be on my own
I’ll be on my own
coming by myself

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.
Thank you to everyone who came out and helped today! It was great to see all of you finally. Smile

Might do a tournament report for this one ... we’ll see! Either way, more details about the results will be coming soon.

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.
