Entry: You need a Star City Anime Pass!
A Blader Passport is not required for this tournament, as the WBO does not charge entry fees for convention events. However, if you want to support the WBO so we can host even better tournaments with even better prizes in the future, and participate in the BeyPoints ranking System in future tournaments, then you will need one! So, if you wish to purchase one at the tournament, that is still possible.

To participate in the tournament, you currently have a few options to gain entrance: a) a weekend pass or b) a day pass for Saturday at Star City Anime. Weekend Passes are available for purchase below.

PURCHASE TICKETS HERE

Please note that children from 7 to 12 can get a weekend badge for $10 off the price for adults.

Although Star City Anime is mostly anime, with some awesome anime voice actors and cosplay guests, it's also about comics, sci-fi, videogames, and more. Whether you're into Doctor Who (like me), vampires, comic books, or anything else, you'll be sure to find it at Star City.

Till tomorrow, Bladers!
Just so everyone knows, we'll be in the Boffer Room, AKA the tabletop/videogames room in the back corner.
This is probably already on its way, but I was busy. Good luck, take pictures and videos !
It's late, but I wanna at least announce the winners of SCA here:

1st: Kingly Manners
Spriggan Heavy Accel

2nd: jizeru1
Deathscyther Heavy Claw/Accel

3rd: Sample Text
Kerbeus Heavy Survive

The finals tied twice, so for the third tiebreaker, everyone agreed to use an aggressive Driver (either Blow, Accel, or Xtreme). Apart from the finals, Sample Text and jizeru1 used their KHS and DHC combos exclusively throughout the event.

Also, Hadeskerbex05 won Survivor Beyblade and the gold Xcalibur Force Xtreme. It was great, ha ha.

I'll post more on the events tomorrow. gn

EDIT: @[Kai-V] We had a total of 10 participants, 5 of which were new signups, and I think everyone there had an enjoyable time regardless of how well they did in the tournament.
Awesome, and those are all people I have never heard of hah. How many people came ?
Hey, perhaps mid-term exams got in the way but I am really curious to know how this went hah. Spring Break is coming, do you know if you could submit everything and tell us more about the main event and the activities soon?
Tomorrow comes three weeks later...!

I'll try to write up an event report sometime in the coming weeks. skool b cray
I just distributed the Faces and Credits for this tournament, except for the Credits of Hades Kerbecs 5, who does not exist right now. I am still hoping for a report of the whole even though more than a month has gone by...
