Team Shellshock is a competitive team based in Los Angeles, California. We double as a set of hosts for regular LA tournaments. The team functions to give a title to our group and coordinate our efforts, as well as to expand the community of Bladers in LA and mentor individuals in order to promote more A-class competitors in the LA scene.

Real great thread, sort of overkill hah. I hope Los Angeles can get a Plastic-format tournament going soon too.
I love that you included a header for alliances just to say you won't have them. hahaha

Sweet logo.

I will likely remove that one, it was mostly just filler so that there could at least be three tabs under team details, in time I want to replace it with something more important.

There should be a Plastics tournament next month, I plan to host it before the end of the year.

I hope you guys can keep a Team Format soon
This is a very cool team. Smile Also the opening post looks absolutely fantastic. Grin If I may ask why have you chosen the name Shellshock?
Love the post! Looks very pro!

I'm thinking of adding bio under each team member. Like we can each write our own just to give a background of our experience in Beyblade. Perhaps make it a spoiler so it doesn't take up much space.
Love this! Best of wishes! Smile

Symbolism, mostly. "Shell" is a term used in Beyblade occasionally, it most likely has some reference to Beigoma being originally made from real shells packed with a lead shot and sand, Shell Killers was the Japanese name for Bladesharks, other uses were things like Proto-Shell (Japanese Draciel S) and Round Shell MS. Shell shock is also a condition in warfare, so the primary shape of the logo is meant to resemble a helmet, it's also just meant to look like a tortoise. There are other Beyblade related symbols strewn about the logo.

I will send all of you a PM about it.

That's super cool. Grin I love turtles and it's cool that you integrated the origin of Beigomas into your name. Very great name choice. ^^
Caution:This is a rant

It is up to you to forge your own members, there are other bladers that attend these events, you can likely find other members who are not your brothers. Nobody is leaving you in the dust, there were no plans between you and any of our team members, no agreement was broken, so I don't see what you are getting at.

If you want to continue this conversation, take it to a PM.
HuntingCheetahz, teams are teams: getting picked over someone else is something you should be used to since dodgeball team choices back in primary school. And in any case, sometimes it is just a matter of a group being better friends, not even about disliking the other person.

Obviously this thread got a lot of attention, which does not help the sour feeling, but there is almost assuredly no offense meant toward you or anyone left out of the team.
Guys it's ok,it just hurt my feelings a bit. Also at the point when making the rant I was smelling black licorice,which that smell aggravates me.
Hey guys I wanna join. Pm me and I'll tell you what I can do.
Really cool maybe I can help idk i have some plastic gen beys only 7 but I would be glad to give u or let u guys use my parts hope u all have a blademazing day and year
Ya' know, being in LA really limits you. People like me in the IE might want to join, but can't, because of the LA restriction.
Maybe you guys should read the thread before asking to join and stuff, because it's been mentioned multiple times that we're currently not looking for new members.

And not sure if anyone new who doesn't know me knows, but I'm from the IE and have run tournaments in Fontana twice in the past.
