Like all official WBO tournaments, there will be a $5 entrance fee if you don't have a bladers passport. You can buy one at the tournament for $10 and you will get into official WBO tournaments for free for a year.

Since we're going to be in a playground in Central Park, you are responsible of keeping watch over your beyblades and personal belongings. We are not responsible if anything is lost or stolen. We'd also recommend that if you do intend to take part in the tournament, then bring your own beys. This may sound like an obvious suggestion, but in the past people have come without, expecting to borrow other blader's blades.

And matches were skipped ?

Yes indeed. That is the point the parents and I made. How can you advertise something clearly and then not follow those same rules or even make an attempt to enforce them? I had Cye show her and one of the judges and still nothing changed.

The judges were people who are not members. They were volunteers that don't beyblade and did not know the rules apparently.
were you the 17 year old with the blue sweatshirt because i was the kid with the red shirt and grey sweatshirt asking people for free parts I did hear some people complain about getting cheated

Yes that was me. I figured you heard it.
Who were the judges if they were not members here ?
why were they judges? to prevent favoritism?

Supposedly from what MorningMess told us, the eldest was her mother and the other two must have been her friends because if they were members they would have known the rules and not have done what they did.
o ok. i thought they were just random people in the park
from now on, judges should be WBO registered members only. i think we can all agree to this

actualy, i am glad i didnt go. sounds like this all went horribly wrong. beys stolen, bad judges, skipped rounds...


gratz to the winners though
not really there were some people selling beys and the free play battles were good i also bought a blue katara tomy beylauncher for $5.00
yes, but personally, if a little kid just randomly stole my bey, i would be pretty P.O.'d is what i am saying. this tourney could have been sooo much better. still kind of a fail
I also had fun but need better judges hope there is another tourney in central park again
They actually started following the rules right after I brought it to their attention. And, my bracket was following the rules from the start. My judge was cool.
well the thing couldn't have been a HUGE fail. the beys stolen is probably a common, and predictable thing.

They did it after the pods were finished. It was not changed within the pods. Hypothetically speaking, even if they were changed during the pods, it wouldnt be fair to the people who played before them. This was done horribly. There was no way around it. I had fun playing against you though. I would have come even if it was just 10 people just to battle you.

The only thing that didn't fail was seeing kids happy from playing with others and learning. The tourney was indeed a fail though. Being unorganized after you clearly state the rules on a thread and then not following them is absolutely unacceptable and is a bad representation of the WBO for those who looked to register.
i bought a bladers passport and they didn't give it to me or do I get it in the mail or something I not sure If they were supposed to give it to me then or to give it to me in the mail can someone answer
maybe we should start a tourney complaints thread...no not kidding. it would help all future tourneys to prevent tourney fails such as this
that may be true. or maybe we should have smaller tourneys. u have to admit, some of the chaos may have been caused by the large amount of peoples there. it may have been best to basically have 2 tourneys. one for evry 15 people or so.
a tourney sign up limit? good idea...

i think tomarrow i will present these new ideas to Kai-V via pm, unless she has seen these posts already
well i didnt exactly mean limit, cuz that would really suck for other people. but i was saying that it mite be better to put a little space between that large a group
I'd like to say that this is the best turnout for a NY tournament ever. Also, all those people weren't a problem. At least not enough for a tournament limit. Especially when Canada is having 58 man tourneys
i'm just saying, it would make things a tad easier.
From what I can read there are pluses and minuses that happened durning this tourney.
A Tourney actually happened
Good Prizes

Carp happened such as:
and other things.

All I can say is since I planned a tourney and it went pretty well is that rules should be explained before any ranked battles start. Explain it multiple times. When everyone meet up explain them. When registration starts, explain them. Before battle start explain them again. Make sure rules are explain and everyone knows them. Make sure parents know why we use TT and they shouldn't complain if their kid loses etc...

Second I am sorry to say but even though there were many problems people should be happy that there a tourney at all. All tourneys have disorder, that is what the universe tends to side to. Running tourneys is a learning experience. There has be like 5 maybe less tourney in the U.S.A most of the tourneys around the world are hosted my mods or super senior members. Bet their first tourney had problems.

Third give MM a little break. Like I said it is a learning experience. if she does/wants/allowed/whatever to host another tournament I am sure the next one will be more organized have better judges and the whole shabangbang(??) lol.

Last but not least....I am trying to figure out how people stole your beys? Can some semi explain this? Did you like loan your bey parts out or something? Or do you think someone went into your bag and stole them?

Blader Passports are virtual ...

Also, I do not know what to do with this. Everybody paid, everybody took the time to attend, but it seems the matches were unfair, and it would not make sense to process the matches when some are missing. It happened in the past : at an Australian tournament, they ended up doing twice a Round Robin. Because we could not just cut and only choose one set of results, we unfortunately did not process the battles. For the Newcastle tournament, all the Italian events though, things go very well. The Committee will really have to discuss this.

I'm very heavily considering hosting an event I'm the near future.

I think tha tournament was a huge success. The turnout was enormous. I wasn't aware that there were that many children registered with the WBO.
