Host: Yami

LocationThis event will be held outdoors at MLK Jr. Park.

Time: As the tournament will start promptly 15 minutes AFTER Burst tournament, please plan to arrive around 3:00pm when registration will begin. Registration will close 15 minutes after burst tournament. If the participant cap has not been met at this time, waitlisted players will be offered a spot. Confirming your attendance on the WBO event page does not substitute for registration at the venue.

Prizes: Due to WBO funds currently being put on hold, prizes will not be offered at this event (fortunately this also means no entry fees!)

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 right after Burst Classic and is expected to run for 2-3 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.




Bring 3 Choose 1 Format Rules
  1. When a match between 2 players is announced, each player assembles 3 combos.

  2. After both players have their combos ready, they turn around and present their combos to their opponent.

  3. Each player is given some time (I'd say 30 seconds - 1 minute max if we really want to be carp about this kind of thing) to identify the combos presented, and then makes the final selection of which Beyblade they will use from the 3 combos they presented to their opponent.

  4. The match then continues as a normal, first to 3 point match would. 
This rule change would not only make huge, single elimination tournaments less unforgiving, it would also reward skilled players who have knowledge of combos and how they interact, as well as how to play certain matchups (which are Beyblade skills, by the way) by allowing them to make more informed decisions during the first stage. The only drawback is that it would increase the time that the first stage takes, though I could only see this being a real issue with events that aren't quite big enough to require single elimination but are still relatively large (in my opinion, like the 65-100 player range). 

Additional Details
For this tournament, repeat parts will be allowed. Players will have 30 seconds to make their beyblade selection after turning their back to their opponent. Launchers will NOT need to be declared prior to selecting one's combo.

Interesting. It's close enough that even though it's late Sunday, I can probably attend.
I hope I can come, but who knows?

They aren't alone! What subforum did that post get made in? I'm fairly certain most people can't see it. I can't!

My apologies guys! I didn't realize the organizer's forum was invisible or that the post was in it. I've added it to the original post for reference. Hopefully we can move the thread to public discussion...

lol!  POSTPOSTPOST
Pretty sure I can go to this one since it’s 30 min away
I'll probably come, but would someone mind explaining the concept of this format? The choose 3 bring 1 thing is new to me
It is what it says:
To each match, you bring 3 beys. You show the beys to the judge, who makes sure they're okay. You show your beys to your opponent. They show you their 3. Then, you each turn around and select one of those beys in secret, based on what you think your opponent will pick. Each of you uses the single bey you each picked.

No spin change on Sr(3), czS(4), or LS, frame needed for 12, and I think that’s it.
