Directions:Take the A, B, or C trains to 71st st. and continue up to the west 72nd street entrance and turn left into central park onto West Dr. Continue on to Terrace Dr until you reach The Mall, where you will turn right to walk to the Bandshell.
Parking: Unless you want to pay for a lot, I suggest parking anywhere the side streets between 10th and 12th avenue or York and 3rd ave as there are no meters.

If you're coming from Long Island, park on the east side and take the 59th st bridge back to the LIE. If you're coming from upstate or New Jersey, park on the west side. Please be advised that all bridges and tunnels have recently increased their tolls to about $13, give or take which one you use.


Hey, what's Halloween without costumes? Come as your favourite Beyblade character! Whether you're from Bakuten Shoot, V Force, G Revolution, or Metal Fight, let's see which character you can best represent! For some great character references from the old series as well as the current series, check out Kai-V's website, Beyblade Spirit.

At the beginning of the tournament, everyone in Beyblade Costumes will get up on stage and I'll announce the usernames of the users wearing costumes. After round three, I will tally up the winners and announce who wins a brand new Phantom Orion. The Phantom Orion will only be given out if the contest has 5 or more entries.

Total Costume Contest Participants:

Free Candy

Okay, this is reason enough to play BY ITSELF. For every round you play in the tournament, I will give you a piece of candy. Please alert me of your allergies if you have any so I don't give you something that will cause you harm. It's double elimination so you are guaranteed two pieces of candy from the start. This means Cye will finally want to win a tournament.

ALERTS!
  • ALL STADIUMS I BRING ARE FOR OFFICIAL PLAY ONLY. If you want to bring your own stadium, that will be a free play stadium. None of my stadiums will be used outside of official play.

  • BRING YOUR OWN FOOD. Especially me. Someone remind me. There is a hot dog cart nearby, but I'm sure you all want something more substantial in your stomachs.

  • IF YOU HAVE PAID FOR A PASSPORT, BUT DO NOT HAVE THE PASSPORT FACE you must contact a committee member (Kei, Daegor42, Kai-V, Blitz, or Heart) about that. I am no longer honouring guesswork of what other hosts have and have not reported. If you do not have the face, you will have to pay fees. Take care of this now while you still have notice. It's written right here so don't whine to me. This means you, Sircancer28.

  • YOUR PASSPORT MAY HAVE EXPIRED. If you had purchased a passport at MorningMess's tournament last year, your passport has expired. If you purchased one at Ikki's tournament, then you're in luck, this is your last day to use it. However, if it rains on Saturday and we have to move this to Sunday, your passport will be officially expired. Check to make sure everything is valid before you come!

  • BE CAREFUL OF YOUR BELONGINGS. There are ALWAYS thefts at large outdoor events in NYC. Keep your parts close. Also, if there is a stadium that is not yours, DO NOT TAKE IT. Actually, this applies to everything that is not yours. Return everything you find to me, please.

  • THIS TOURNAMENT WILL RUN MINIMUM 3 HOURS. Please tell your parents this. You can leave earlier if you lose (we don't recommend it as you should practice for the next tournament), but you should be up front about this time frame.

He was talking to me. This may have been you though, IDK how many people asked me to battle them.

Yes, this thread will eventually die down but will still exist Near. Just in the later pages though.

Well, that's sad because this was my first Unhappy "stick to" thread 🐹🐭🌊💅💀🎑
My first win...my very first win in MFB...and my opponent got me good, too. All three of my matches were mondo close, each 2-2 with the 5th shoot the deciding round. Of course, my last two matches were 2-3 (me being the 2...), but I got my very first win and mondo close calls today just by upgrading my Lightning LDrago 100RF (I've limited supplies lol) to a Lightning LDrago BD145RF. I learned a lot from this; if I plan on being a bit more competitive, I need to learn a lot more. *going to experiment with more attackers*

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a Beat Lynx or a second Phantom Orion, but I used MF-H Basalt Horogium R145RF against Kaji (That was a fun battle. Plus, Horogium completely forced L-Drago to the Tornado Ridge and drained its spin completely. Grin). I used Phantom Orion for the next 2 rounds, and lost to a low track Basalt WD combo (KO'ed me twice at the last second, I couldn't believe it.)

That was fun. It was an honor to battle against a live and dedicated fan of my comics in the flesh than just talking to him online (btw, 38 and 39 should be up on DD). You really pushed me towards the edge. I don't know how I caught up with those last two points, but I think I was doing the same thing those two times (before, I was banking). The fifth shoot, I went for the tornado-ridge and messed myself up. I feel that if I had repeated my last two times, I would have won that match, but you and Spin-Sonic (I kept confusing him for Killer Spinner, so I feel bad XD) were awesome opponents. I need to perfect my technique, because I keep forgetting what to do!

Also, need to invest in fingerless gloves...

(Nov. 06, 2011  1:06 AM)GaHooleone Wrote: And no one but Kaji used attack against me... Hell, my 4th round was literally a Phantom Orion vs. a Phantom Orion, I just had a better mold Phantom which I beat Near with (I'm pretty sure that that was him).

I take pride on using Attackers. I'm not a good thinker, and I'm very blunt and direct, which reflects on anything I customize (TCG, Beyblades, etc.), so I like to think of those as representations of myself. I suck at things like techniques and strategies. XD

--

Shoutout to my first opponent, ultimateswiftie as well. I acknowledge you as one of the opponents that taught me today.



Also, a(n obnoxiously) Neon Green Hasbro Launcher was found today before the tournament started. I called for anyone who had lost a Neon Green Hasbro Launcher, and I got no reply (and I was pretty damn loud, too). If anyone has lost a Neon Green Hasbro Launcher, talk to Deikailo. I placed it in her bag for lost and found because the tourney was going on. Again, talk to Deikailo.

Reminder for next week's tournament to KEEP YOUR STUFF ON YOUR AT ALL TIMES.
Hunh, it didn't merge my post. Gonna have to fix that. Until then, please delete this post.

Hey! I know Spin Sonic and he was not there. You are NOT confused my friend! WinkWinkWinkWink

You ARE referring to the little boy wearing the down vest over the orange hoodie with dirty blonde hair, right??? The one with the dad that helped you fight off the complaining parents???Tongue_out_winkTongue_out_winkEeeEeeWinkWink
seriously, how do all u guys applie ur face bolt badges and get rankings
The WBO does that once the results are processed.

I got lost 4 (or more...can't count how many times I got lost then) times the first time I went to the Bandshell for a beyblade event.

ok but this time I'm coming prepared because I was cold like after 5 minutes Pinching_eyes

She said there (at the bandshell) that it's going to be in a school auditorium equipped with heat. So it MUST be official.

And that was only one spin time, I'll edit this with my best time. I'm pretty sure that having an older Phantom is better because the B : D is broken in by that point. And I didn't realize you were using a light launcher, why didn't you bring a beylauncher?

I bet at the tourney by the time u faced me our BGrins were frozen by then Wink
that's freaky, on my last post between the B and D, i only put : but it transformed into a Smile ?
oh, the : and the D got mixed and became Grin
B:D just disable smilies

Thank you all who participated in this tournament especially my son, Joseph317 who encouraged me to enter. Afterwards, we went home and practiced some more and I even put together my very first combo that performs quite well. See you all at the next one and thanks again for making me feel welcomed considering that, not only was I the oldest competitor but finished in, as Joseph317 put it, DEAD LAST! LOL!

Ha, it's nice to have parents that play! I wish mine would, but I think when they are nearing 60, their version of fun and spending time with their kids is much different.

Y'know, I can't remember who he was! I know I've seen him before, with Bluezee and Deikailo a few times during my first few tournaments earlier in the year, and I associated him with one of the users I remember. I just went through te attendence list and picked "...I might've been Spin Sonic". Needless to say, I forgot his username completely now. All I remember is that it was the guy who used a Big Bang something in my second Round.

Dei, who was my opponent in Round 2?

It was really fun i hope everyone enjoyed it too.

It was a close call. Nobody except Kaji (what a beast) used attack (again, what a beeeeast), really.

Oh, and great job to Killer Spinner, who played a great game! His only losses were to the kids who placed in first and second.

These are the winners. Posted pages back.

I'd take the candy, Deikailo, but I'll probably get WAAAAY too hyper off it and too many cavities to count. My orthodontist would scream her head off at me if I got any cavities, I swear she would.

"I brought enough candy to feed a small army" - remember that, Deikailo?

People took all the good ones. The milkduds, the hersheys, and the whoopers (which are the greatest btw). I wanted to the take something from the other bucket, but...not a fan of...those...gumdrop looking things...

Fan of the Smarties. Any left? I'll take them!
well, this threads off the opening posts, which, for me, is sad :-(
Well, yeah. There's no need to post here anymore unless the committee need to clarify anything about the tournament. You can always post in the 11/12/11 NYC tourney.
To above me, Dei told me that the Nov. 12th tournament will be held in famemonster8 and ultimateswiftie's elementary school auditorium, the location of which she doesn't know yet. famemonster8 is so addicted to beyblade that everybody in the school got hooked on to it as well, so pretty much everyone blades. Yes, it will be warm.


Ok, sorry I got confused when he said that.
BUT ALL IS RESTORED AFTER READING DJ BATTLE THREAD.
( which, admittedly, i should have done before posting)
PS 63 was not our school. 87 was.
Itd be awesome if 87 did a tourney, because, fortunatly, my new school is practically the senior school of 87 and is right across the street....

I SO WISH WE COULD GO TO DJ BATTLE,
but our synogouge kids group is staying overnight at a camp.

Good luck to all who are going!!!
Who was that person who wanted to trade his CS tip for my ES tip? I'll trade you for it. PM me if you're that person and still want to trade. My Pisces bey is virtually useless now anyway, since the T125 track got smashed by someone else's bey (thank you, whoever you are. I truly mean it. You gave me an awesome moment then, and now I can talk about it) .
Hey, has this tourney been sent in and/or processed yet?
