Fees:
Standard WBO fees $5 for entry to each tournament or just get the passport for $10 which gets you in to every tournament for a full year!
If you're getting a blader passport please get it before the tournament if possible.

Good luck with this tournament coach! I'm not going to lie, I love how you're asking each member to bring a newer member to attend. Also, Getting a prize for that is amazing Smile

I've done it before in a different way, when I sold stuff I'd give them discounts if they brought new members.

But seeing TBD's Revival tournament made me think we should have our own revival. With the talk in the State of Tournaments it was also a reminder that if we as hosts aren't bringing in new bladers, no matter how well the tournament went, it's not a success. We need to help grow the WBO community and to me tournaments are the #1 to do that.
you may put me as a maybe , but i don't understand why there is a vote i thought this was a bb-10 formate
I cant wait for this we are all so pumped
put me as a maybe because of weather problems ive been gone for a while and want to get back in the spirit
Fury, I'm pretty sure but need you to confirm whether you and your friends are going to do the 2nd tournament as well. whether it's Limited or Zero G. And if you all want Zero-G like you voted I'd get them to sign on and vote!
@Libraten, that would be excellent I was disappointed we couldn't do the tournament over Christmas break, but as the year goes on hopefully this year is better than 2012 was!
I might come and battle under zero g
Just so everybody knows, I can see who voted for which event. Only people who are on the confirmed or possibles list votes will count.
right now it's still only 1 to 1. As 2 votes are from random members not on either list and I don't believe in the area, correct me if I'm wrong voters, but please post if you are planning on coming! as it helps big time in the preperations.
I am a definite on this one coach. See you all there!!!

Both tournaments? Vote for what you'd like for the second.
Coach we can go to both tournaments Grin
OP is updated with attendees and such, let me know if something is incorrect or if you're a possible and can confirm now.

Also just to let you know the vote is currently 3-1 in favor of Limited. there are 2 votes for Zero-G from bladers out of area that have no intent on coming and that's why it looks like it's 3-3

Is there a date for the 2nd one or is this tournament happening when we finish this one, Like back to back?
The tournaments are back to back.

Yes, back to back, thanks Kira.

Also the voting is still 3-2 in favor of limited. as we've had another voter from who knows where vote for Zero-G.
Depending on how this weekends events go, we might be the first tournament with the new ban list as well. which will
Ban: Gravity & Metal Fury Scythe.
Unban: 4D/Hyperblades Omega & Rubber Ball.
I was trying to be unbiased towards what we do, but really unless you have a Zero-G attack stadium to practice in, Zero-G could be very frustrating for you.
Limited is a lot more fun than it sounds plus their are unsynchromed zero-g beys on the top tier list.

Um... It might just be me, but I didn't see any signs of Scythe getting banned. IIRC, Kai-V said to wait and see if it does good in a tournament. So if no one plays it, it might not be banned.

Yeah that's kind of what I meant, with depending on how they do in these next tournaments would decide whether they do or not.

To be honest I dont care what the second format is as long as we all have fun. Also will there be things to buy or prizes
Yeah, is anyone going to be anything for sale, because I want to buy a bb-10 stadium if someone has an extra.
There will be plenty of prizes, and possibly if you wanted afterwards there could be some left of prizes I'd be willing to sell. got random booster beys from RBV 7 & 8 (Jade Jupiter, and Beat Lynx). Grip accessories, as well as a few other things.
I need some grip accessories and random booster 8 would be awesome. 7 is great I got my lynx from it

That wouldn't go here. Unless, you're asking somebody to sell them to you.
Edit: Nevermind, didn't see Coaches post Tongue_out
I'm now confirmed for this tournament. Don't know about Round Shell because she has some problems with her family, so I dunno.
