Weller Court-Downtown Los Angeles
Priority-Burst (May end up being MFB Standard)


Free Play & Registration-11:00 AM | Brackets & Announcements-12:15 | Tournament-12:30 PM

_____________________________________________________________

Host and Judges:
ThaKingTai w/ co-hosts @[jojospud247],@[earthwolf1404] and @[Alta]

Directions:
Directions can be found right here When you get over to the knot, keep walking inside and look to your left. There are some tables and an asian supermarket as well.

Fees:
As always, it will be $5 for the single tournament or $15 for a Blader Passport, that allows you to go to tournaments free for an entire year! Plus, you can enter into exclusive giveaways for Passport Holders!

Format:
As stated above, this will hopefully be Burst format. If there is not enough Burst beys, then we will move over to MFB Standard. Be ready to do either or! It will either be Round Robin or Block Round Robin, in the event that we have more than 12 people.

Prizes:
-1st Place: First Pick of the Prize Pull +3 Credits & Gold Face*
-2nd Place: Second Pick of the Prize Pull +2 Credits & Silver Face*
-3rd Place: Third Pick of the Prize Pull +1 Credits & Bronze Face*
+ A Raffle for a Long Winder (for those who did not place)

*In the case that we have only seven participants, only the winner will recieve a single credit and a Gold Face

*This will not be processed in the Beypoint System, as it is LA's first Burst tournament. This allows us to feel out the Burst metagame, so we are better prepared for next time!


Notice for All:
While we Bladers are very respectful of each others' possessions, please watch over your stuff. This is not to say that anyone of us would steal or damage anything, but we are still in a public place with people that aren't in our group. So please, be careful!

All this and possibly even more! Makes sure to get there as early as possible and make time after the event too! This is not the event to want to miss! See you there!!

Just to avoid any confusion.

Yea, I remember that for sure! I'll make sure to remind every one of it before the tournament begins. I'll replace the prize info soon,

Ah no, Faces and Credits should still be distributed, just not Beypoints.
Darn it, my bad! I'll fix it right now!
No worry at all, hah.

Weller Court is not a mall, but there is a place to buy Burst Beyblades just down the street. One of the hosts will gladly take people there before and after the tournament so that people can get their hands on new Beyblades. Also, some of us that do have Burst Beyblades are lending some out to those that don't have it for this tourney. Feel free to ask once you arrive at Weller Court.

ok, thanks I just hope I have time or else I will have no launcher at all. does the place down the street sell burst or mfg?
They only sell the Burst Booster packs now, meaning no launchers. But now that AX has ended, they should be restocking sometime this month. Probably not until after the tournament though.

whats AX means? and can I use my custom string launcher here is a photo: http://imgur.com/R0RJAu6
Anime Expo. BTW we should totally talk to them about trying to host a tournament there for next year.

That launcher is illegal will that Lego handle. If you have any of the plastic from the handle left on, then you might be able to still use it, but again, we have launchers for you to borrow.

Yeah, I might show up at the tournament. Put my name in the Possible list. I am not sure if I am able to go or not. Something might just pop up without knowing.

IM SO EXCITED,AND I JUST CANT HIDE IT! WOOOO MT FIRST EVENT!
Three more days guys! I hope you are all pumped for this!

If any of you have any Plastics or HMS beyblades, please bring them with you for free play. Since we didn't get to plan for HMS & Plastics Day, it would be great to at least do something in the same month.
Woah-woah, theres a STORE that sells Burst? eAe This, I'm gonna have to see
I am planning a tournament for either the 23rd or the 24th for Plastics & HMS Remembrance Day.

If we can get enough people for it then we should be able to make it work, we have roughly 9 to 10 days to get at least 7 attendees. This is somewhat of a longshot because not a lot of people will have Plastics, but we should be able to provide extras for others to borrow, I know ThaKingTai and earthwolf1404 have Plastics blades, if they are willing to lend them to attendees who don't have any. Unfortunately most of my Plastics have breakage, I currently only have one full combination that is in good enough condition for an event, so I can't lend many parts.

Anyone who would like to attend a Plastics format event, confirm yourself in the main LA events topic.

Is it mostly guaranteed that it will be Burst? It looks like I won't be able to go.
Yeah, the odin is at 20 online where you can get it for 12 over there.

Sorry to intrude, but felt like I need to give a heads up to Sapphire and anybody else buying; do not buy Odin, as it is banned some WBO competitive play. Smile

I forgot why is it bad?
Odin is practically unburstable. So it isn't fair to use.

It's not 'bad' per say, but was banned because of how good it was, with good Defense and Stamina, it was very versatile.

Anyways, enough of me hijacking the thread. But before I leave; I like the banner, Alta Smile

It will be Burst Format, but there will be plenty of parts for you to borrow to put together your own combination, if not several.
