COVID-19 Precautions READ THIS BEFORE CONFIRMING YOUR ATTENDANCE:
This event will cooperate with theMontgomery County COVID Guidelines, which require the following:

- Social distancing of 6 feet when possible
- Face coverings for everyone over age 2 (Please note that players who do not bring their own face covering will be unable to compete)
- Guidance and training on the rules
- Disinfectants applied to common used surfaces

Please also be aware of the WBO COVID-19 Guidelines effective from last year.

In addition, we respectfully request that all parents and siblings of tournament participants remain away from the playing area and avoid close interactions with tournament equipment and individuals outside of their immediate family. Participants may bring no more than one guardian this event.

Other Information:
Please come prepared. It is helpful for both hosts and judges if all participants bring at least one Takara Tomy or Hasbro-manufactured Beyblade of their own and more than one launcher when possible. Additionally, parents of children under the age of 13 must be present for the duration of the event, as tournament end times can be difficult to estimate, and we would hate for someone to be left behind once it is over.

Be aware of your belongings. We'd advise users to please, please look after your stuff. While yes this is a Beyblade tournament and we're not suggesting that any of us would attempt to take each other's stuff it is still happening at a public venue where other people (who may not be so friendly) are going to be present as well. Of course, if you see a personal belonging lying around bring it up any of the judges so we can return it to the right person. Your co-operation is appreciated!

All players must arrive on-time. The tournament will begin no later than 12:00 PM and is expected to run for about 3 hours, though if there is a large turnout it may take longer. Please plan accordingly. If you do not arrive at the scheduled start time, you risk being excluded from the tournament. The software we use to run our events–Challonge–does not allow us to add in extra participants once the tournament has started.

If you know in advance that you will be late, please post in this thread or contact someone at the event and depending on the circumstances we can perhaps still include you if we know you will arrive soon.

5. Listen For Your Username To Be Called

It will probably be Swiss. Although double elimination is an option upwards of 33 people, no one tends to run it like that.

Yeah, for a very good reason. Double elim is too punishing imo.

It is indeed. When people drive from many states away to attend a tournament, it's demoralizing to get kicked out after 2 losses. I remember a LazerBeamz tournament that was double elimination, I was shocked. I happened to be in town already so it wasn't terrible, and I did make it to the finals, but I was quite fearful of getting eliminated.
Still waiting to see if mom's okay with me going this Sunday, so, fingers crossed I'll be able to go, really wanna try to get used to both Formats of Beyblade Tournaments

Especially like what if you mislaunch? Imagine getting kicked from a tournament second round because you tried attack and then self KOed. Like double elim just makes the risk of things like attack too much imo. Also nice profile pic btw
i dont think i can go afterall. if something changes last minute and theres a spot, ill join again. for mfb afterwords aswell.
sorry guys, there were some back and forth in my schedule. sry for the rapid fire joining.
never mind. my schedule is so in consistant these days. have fun guys
Hello everyone, just wanted to post a quick note to notify all of you that the Shot Driver is now banned in Burst Classic Format, which means you cannot use it in this event. The ban list has been updated in the rulebook: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13dKt...wwm5i814jn

This ban will be detailed in another announcement in the future, but because this event is coming up this weekend we wanted to make sure all participating players are aware of the change.
It makes sense. The driver/disc combinations are generally banned in this format. Might want to just... ban all driver/disc combination drivers.

I agree, unfortunately some people don't. I'm glad we got this banned tho, I didn't want my trip to be ruined by a big piece of metal in my smaller piece of metal top game

Looking forward to tomorrow's tournament, good luck everyone!
Sry y'all, can't go, stuff going on with the dang van so, hopefully I'll be able to go to the one on Aug. 1st, but sadly gonna have to miss out on tomorrow, if something changes I'll update on MD Tournament's on Discord, but if not, again, sry y'all 😞
Ok so is anyone bringing stadiums to be in the play area (Tournament battles) or is TSO bringing all of them because I have a stadium I am willing to use. Can’t wait to see everyone and good luck😁
A few of the organizers are bringing beystadiums. Feel free to bring your own stadium if you want to practice, but there are times you will not be able to keep sight of it. I honestly recommend you don't bring any beystadiums you aren't prepared to lose, unless you're attending with another person who can watch your stuff.

That video has some truly quality shots of
1) Me complaining about how old I am
2) My shorts
Perhaps too spicy for WBO and YouTube.
