Cosplay

Feel free to dress up as your favorite anime character, Beyblade or not, just keep it family friendly 😎. 


AFTER TOURNAMENT FREE PLAY

Pokémon & YuGiOh

With most to all Beyblade tournaments we will have an area for free play during the event. However, free play will be limited so participants can be attentive and hear when their names are called to compete. This will help the event flow better so we can overall enjoy our time. A practice area will definitely be available.

Since we will be playing inside, after the tournament is over, participants are welcome to stay a little longer and enjoy free play with either Beyblade, Pokemon or YuGiOh. I am a big nerd and enjoy the TCG life also. There are many coming who still are a part of the YuGiOh competitive scene, so if you have your deck ready please feel free to bring it 😎.

If you look next to what beyblade format this is it says ranked right next to it which means we'll be using standard TT stadiums. FG has hosted tournaments before where they use DB stadiums but those were unranked

Plane just landed in Raleigh! So excited
In the car heading to Raleigh! So excited for tomorrow!
I’m heading to Raleigh tomorrow in the morning for the tournament!

Will there be an admission cost for the convention venue?
Hello everyone, I wish you all safe travels to Raleigh and to the event.

Answering a few questions I’ve received:

These is no admission fee for the event.

The cap will remain at 64 for Swiss.

The format in first stage is 3v3.

I will go over the invitation only tournament tomorrow during my announcements.

This is a ranked event utilizing the B-09 stadium and deck format finals, please review the rules for further details.

You are allowed to come watch the event if you aren’t registered but that does not guarantee you a entry to play in the tournament. If we reach maximum occupancy of the room you may not be allowed to enter as well. Fire hazards and such.

Ok, I think that was most of the questions I had or the most frequent ones. On another note, please arrive ON TIME! If you show up at 11 you may be too late. As you all know everyone doesn’t always show up that registered, and at the same time a lot of others do that haven’t had the opportunity to register. We are expecting a decent turnout for this event so once on site registration time is over I will start allowing unregistered players to join (in order of their arrival) until we reach the cap.

Unfortunately I won’t be up here tomorrow so any questions or concerns then please DM me this evening. You can also reach out to another participant who may be at the event and they can relay your message to me.

Overall, and I can’t express this enough, please please please do not be late 🙏🏾 I want everyone who registered to be able to play but I can’t hold off the event time because it’s going to be a long day already 😎

Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow and thank you so much for coming out!!!
Tomorrow we shall see who will ride opon the 500 hundred dollar dragons back

Who was judging that match?

It was whoever was judging Stadium 2 for the second round, I don't recall them leaving that spot.

Even if the call doesn't change because "the launch looked strong enough" or "it looked like a bad angle into the pocket", I'm more miffed by the silence. If you think this, say this. Don't just write it off or ignore a player outright.

Please use the “incident report” that can be found in the rulebook if you like to file one.
