Can you be a little more specific as to what you mean by gear?

I can’t be sure based on the information you are giving me.  You are welcome to bring it to the tournament and we can check it there.  Or you can try to upload a few photos and I will do my best to see if it is legal equipment.
Shindog I think by Line he means ripcord so that might help you understand.

It might a certain type of rip cord. If it is authentic Hasbro or Takara Tomy it should be fine.
Are there age requirements for this tournament?

TIPS FOR NEWCOMERS!!
We have a lot of people participating in this tournament. To make this event run smoothly, here are some important notes to follow:

1) Have your WBO account open on your mobile device during sign-in time. Alternatively, you can print out your profile and bring it to the event. Don't have an account yet? Just click the "Join Now" button on the top right corner of the page. It's easy and free!

2) Accounts cannot be shared with multiple participants. If you are a parent/guardian bringing multiple children to the event, they each must have their own account. Again, joining is easy and free Smile

3) This tournament may run from 5 to 6 hours. An event of this size will take some time to get through. If you don't think you can commit to the full event, we suggest you only participate in free-play. If you have to leave the tournament early, please let the host know that you are dropping out.

4) Listen for your name to be called for battle! If you don't answer for your battle, it will result in an automatic loss. We understand this will be an exciting event for young children, so parents we also suggest listening for your child's name Smile

5) REMINDER!! THIS TOURNAMENT IS METAL FIGHT LIMITED FORMAT, NOT BURST FORMAT. Only official Beyblades from Metal Fight/Fusion may be used. They must also be from the Hasbro, Takara Tomy, or Sono Kong brands. All other brands will not be allowed for use. There is also a banned list of parts than may not be used. Please read the full format rules here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/18nVK...sp=sharing

That's all for now. Please read all information this thread has provided. If you still have any unanswered questions, post it and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Thanks for reading!
This player count is starting to get a bit concerning
Another reminder: the WBO is a fan-run, volunteer organization.

We had a bigger turnout than expected. We want everyone to have an opportunity to play and have a good time, but please be patient as we are a volunteer organization and only so many volunteers for this event. Thanks for understanding Smile
Please try to arrive on time or early. we really do need to get everyone registered by 11:30AM. We have a much bigger crowd than anticipated. We need to start on time simply because we need the daylight to complete the tournament. Please try to arrive as early as possible. Mostly like we will need to enforce a strict cut off registration at 11:30AM.

It was a much larger turn out than I anticipated.  Also there was a lot of confusion about the format.  Thank goodness I had a lot of help from the LA organizer Vets.  Also thank goodness for the extra parts I bought from yahoo auction Japan showing up in time.  Unfortunately, I just didn’t have enough to loan out to everyone.  I do regret that as some people traveled quite the distance to come.  But I think we got most people who showed up into the tournament.  I think the rest did enjoy free play.  I will be more carefully in planning on the the future.

Even I am still learning things about tournament organization, so for you to have to deal with nearly 70 players for your first event and still be able to finish successfully is commendable! Every experience is valuable and I'm sure what you've learned from this event will make the next one even better.

However, the blame for confusion about the format can really only rest on the shoulders of those who didn't realize what format it was. It says "Metal Fight Limited Format" right below the event title as well as on the right-hand side of the event page with a picture of Galaxy Pegasis ... I mean, maybe you could have put in extra bold, large, red letters in the event description that it was MFL and not BST, but you shouldn't have to as it is reasonable to expect people to read the details for the event they are attending. Although, I do understand that many people reading the thread (such as parents) might not even understand that there is different generations/types of Beyblades.

So, it's good you had some Beyblades on hand to lend out to those who didn't have any. Typically when I do that we lend them out only for tournament battles. In large events like this it is easy to lose Beyblades you loan out, so I've found limiting it to tournament matches if the best way to do it.
