Yes, you read that right, Spinoff is back on!

After a little negotiation the guys at the MCM Expo have agreed to give us some space for the tourney. Awesome, right? Now here's the hard part: forget everything you have previously heard about Spinoff. Seriously, it'll just confuse the hell out of you. Let's start a fresh, okay?

Okay. Spinoff is now a two day event. It'd be great if you could make both days but if you can only make one then that is fine too. We will have the main tourney on Saturday 23rd. It is scheduled to start at 12:00. This may be pushed back till like 12:30 if people are stuck in queues, etc, but no later than this. If you want to take part you must have registered before then. We will have free battles and demos to the other Expo attendees on both the Saturday (when we're not doing the tourney) and the following Sunday. We may have a mini tourney on the Sunday, depending on the number of people.

The actual tourney will start at roughly midday on the Saturday. If you've put down that you're coming and I can see you're not there then I can wait a bit but I'd like to get it started around that time. I'll post a picture or something later but for now, my number is *number deleted because you don't need it anymore*. Use as appropriate (running late, can't find us, etc.)

As Spinoff is now being hosted inside the Expo, you must buy a ticket. You can either buy a Fast Track Ticket that will allow you early and relatively queue free access to the event, or you can turn up on the day and buy a ticket when you get there. However, if you do this then you may have to wait in some pretty long queues. For that reason, it is advised that you order tickets in advance. For more inormation, please look here: http://www.londonexpo.com/show_information/tickets.html

Transport to the Excel Center is easy as it has very close train and DLR links. Just start at the Excel Center and work backwords to your house! If you have any queries on how to get there then please PM me so I can help you out. Alternatively, this may be of help: http://www.excel-london.co.uk/visitors/travel

It would be nice if you could PM me or post to say you're definitely coming but if not then don't worry. In any case, spread the word and bring along as many friends as you can!

If you have any other questions or queries please ask here or PM me. I'll be sure to answer quickly. If it is a smaller question I would appreciate it if you PMed me rather than spamming up the thread. Thanks a lot in advance. Wink



Obviously the most important part is that we all get to meet and battle each other, but, as an added bonus, we have some prizes. Wink

~Saturday~
1st Prize: 4x RBV2
2nd Prize: 3x RBV2
3rd Prize: 2x RBV2

~Sunday~
1st Prize: 1x RBV2
2nd Prize: 1x RBV2
3rd Prize: 1x RBV2

For those of you who are curious, RBV2 is a pretty awesome RB. Most of the blades in it have good parts, and there's the chance of getting a Libra which is obviously a staple part. Here's what you could win:

Aquario 105B
Aquario DF145SF
Bull DF145HF
Libra 100F
Libra D125HF
Pisces D125BS
Virgo 100B
Virgo 125BS



It seems an attendance list is necessary so.....here we go. Joyful_3 It'd be great if anyone who is 'unconfirmed' could confirm whatever their answer may be as soon as possible. I do apologise if there are any mistakes, I'm sure you can understand that with all the 'it's on', 'no it's off', 'no it's on', 'no it's off' stuff, it is a little confusing. ^^;

Yep, I can bring my own. And probably lend out one should someone want to join in.
Yes i will be coming along aswell.
We know that already.

EDIT: Sorry :s
Don't tell Sam off. Yeah we knew that but he did recieve a PM like everyone else so its easy to see why he might feel it necessary to re-confirm. Wink

And Munkerz, if you could bring some spares that'd be amazing. Joyful_3 I gonna have to keep a record of all this....

Red Dwarf.
By the way, if it's needed on the Sunday, I have an Attack type stadium I could bring along.

I imagine any stadiums people could gather would be appreciated. It means we could have more battles going on at once. I'm going to see if I can obtain a stadium before the event (I need one anyway), and if I manage, I'll bring it down.
We'll be taking some stadiums up on Friday so that we definitely have some there in the morning. I'm not sure how many we will need but I'm some more will be helpful.
Ok, well I'll bring it anyway just in case it's needed.
The face for attending Spinoff should be changed to the 'against the odds' face rather than the 'courage' face.
Ahahahaha. Courage was never all that suited. It's just that no-one thought of anything better. I dunno about 'against the odds' but it should definitely be something similiar. XD
'Determination' would be pretty fitting Grin
Ooooo, I like. XD Can you think of a weird kinda clue for it? Gasp
"This face is for those who overcame the odds"
Either that or "This face is for resurrecting a tournament from the dead" but the first one has a more mystical ring to it.
The green face thing is for people who contribute to the site examples:(G writes articles,azuma has the face because he runs a system that allows many bladers to get Beyblades,rocky brought back one of the major tournys of the year)
Unsure as to why you've posted that, we were discussing the Spinoff attendance face name and details, not the face that Rocky received for sorting this whole mess out.
You could also have 'stuborn' face as a never give up thing.
Anyways this list was from the old Spinoff thread, obviously some of this stuff might need updating/ changing:

I don't think the banned part was really necessary......^^;

"One who receives or entertains guests in a social or official capacity."

You could have googled it XD
The MFB are still in the UK in Chozen's possession, so they will be available for SpinOff. Grin

Cool for Saturday attendees ^ ^
Can you stick me in to the unconfirmed but likely category?

I'll be around the expo for the weekend with a few of the oldie BBT/GBB members, whether or not they're deciding to compete I don't know. I'll be bring my blades up anyways, just don't know if I want to be stuck in one place for the majority of the day lol.
