BURST FORMAT

Tournament Registration: 11AM
Tournament Start: 12PM

From seemingly out of nowhere, the third generation of Beyblade has burst onto the scene!. North Carolina Bladers, this is your chance to get a first hand opportunity to try out the new Beyblades from this exciting, explosive new series, receive one for yourself to take home, and trade parts with other players to build the best Beyblade you can!


First 7 Participants get a brand new Beyblade to use and take home!
And listen, we're not asking for those products back at the end, no way! Those are really gifts for the community! The first 7 Bladers to arrive at the tournament will randomly pick one Layer, one Disk, and one Driver from the Beyblade Burst items shipped to the host, and leave with it at the end!!

What happens if there are more than seven players, do you ask? Quite simply, these first seven, lucky Bladers will be asked to share with the players who came in later to the event when they are not playing in an official battle with it already. Their Beyblade will be returned at the end, because the host will have written down who got what.

Mandatory $5 Entry Fee = More Beyblade Burst Events + Extra Credits!
To help subsidize the high cost of importing some of the new Beyblade Burst items from Japan, a mandatory $5 entry fee will be imposed on all Beyblade Bursts Onto The Scene events, regardless of whether or not a participant has a Blader Passport (if you wish to purchase a Blader Passport, the total cost would be $15 at a Beyblade Bursts Onto The Scene event), and there will be no prize reimbursement. We hope that everyone can understand this! The more funds we have, the more we can afford to do for the community in the future! We're actually going to be losing money despite this entry fee, and for those that receive a Beyblade, it will be much cheaper to get one that way than it would be to import one yourself (although we certainly hope you all do this after playing with them!). However, to show our appreciation for your cooperation and support in helping to fund the championship, all participants in Qualifier Series tournaments will receive the following:
  • +1 Extra Credit to be used for prizes from our awesome Blader Rewards, on top of whatever they would have normally earned.
  • New Passport Holders will earn +2 Extra Credits, rather than +1, 2 Face Boosters from the list above, rather than just 1.

"But what about my BeyPoints? I've never played Beyblade Burst!"
No problem! The first Beyblade Event in every region will not count towards the BeyPoint System. Think of it as an opportunity to experiment and just focus on having fun with the new series.

Of course however, there will also be Faces and Credits to play for. Wink

What is Beyblade Burst?
Beyblade Burst is the brand new, third generation of Beyblade by TAKARA-TOMY! It is set to launch in July 2015 in Japan. If you are not familiar with Beyblade Burst, please take a look at the Beywiki article covering it: http://wiki.worldbeyblade.org/index.php?...lade_Burst

Is that in addition to the mandatory $5 WBO entry fee for this event?

Yes, according to Dark_Mousy GT will now have a store fee for Beyblade events but will have prize support/store credit for the placers.
Confirm me!

This is gonna be great. Can't wait to see how these things work up close.

Yes it is. Its part of the new working agreement with GT. If we didn't do that we couldn't use GT. And quite frankly I like playing indoors better then the park. And once they start carrying Beyblade Burst they will be giving out Beyblades as prizes.
I'm coming to this one for sure. Confirm me please Smile
Won't be able to make BC2, unfortunately, but I'll definitely be at this event. Can't wait to take the new generation of Beyblade for a spin with you guys. Tongue_out
I will attend the beyblade bust tournament in North Carolina.
Putt me down for attendance I'm so hyped for the tournament see you there.
.
I actually might make it to this event. I'll update if otherwise. I REALLY want to try out the new Beys.
I think I can make, any age restrictions? If not, I have a 95% chance of going! Hope I make it in time for the beys...

No age restrictions! Anybody of any age allowed to play, as long as you are respectful and mature. Smile
Oh, alright! Can't wait to go! Do you think the Beys will be compatible with Metal Era launchers? Also, I'm pretty sure I'm the most mature kid my age in Greensboro '._.

Well, they're a different generation, so I'd assume not.
Er... What? I don't understand what you're saying, sorry.

They will not be compatible.
Oh, okay. Thanks!
If we had Beyblade Burst for sale at this event, who would be interested in buying? They wouldn't be part of the booster draft or anything, but just asking.
