For the past three years we've hosted our marquee tournament at ANIME NORTH–BEYBLADE'S NOT DEAD! in 2008, BEYBLADE WAR ROOM in 2009, BEYBLADE REVIVAL CUP in 2010–and this year will be no different! In association with the AN GAMING division of AN2011 we will be hosting our tournament this year under the title, BEYBLADE CRUSADE!

No Beyblade? No problem! We're going to try to obtain Beyblades to bring with us so you'll be able to draft the parts to form a full Beyblade (for approx. $10), then you can play and trade with other Bladers before the tournament to hone your skills!

A Blader Passport is not required for this tournament, as AN does not allow event organizers to charge entry fees for events within the convention. 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 must either purchase a weekend pass or a day pass at AN (if you wish to participate in all of the events and programming that AN has to offer), or alternatively, AN has graciously created a special $6 ticket this year for people who want to participate only in BEYBLADE CRUSADE.

You can sign up/purchase your ticket here: http://www.formstack.com/forms/?1062968-hwu8IOQkLu

Once purchased, you will receive an e-mail confirmation. On the day of BEYBLADE CRUSADE, present this confirmation to the person registering everyone and you will be given some sort of identification (probably a stamp or wristband).

The people who choose to sign up online and pay their fee can register half an hour prior to general registration. When general registration for people who have not signed up online begins, a second line for the people who did sign up/pay online will be formed as well in case they chose not to arrive earlier. As you can imagine, this second line for people who have signed up/paid already will move quite quickly. So, it is to your advantage to sign up/pay in advance!

The AN tournament has become a tradition of sorts, and while what we've accomplished in the past three years has been great … we are not going to rest on our laurels this time around! We're going to take this tournament to the next level.

How so, you ask? In an effort to build awareness and excitement for BEYBLADE CRUSADE this May we are going to be hosting three tournaments in the upcoming months under the name "BEYBLADE CRUSADE RECRUITMENT SESSIONS". Here's how each of them is going to work:

[Image: RECRUITMENTSESSIONSsmall.png]

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 1 - March 26, 2011
  • 15 participant limit
  • Round Robin
  • Top two finishers gain the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE, should they attend.
  • Top two finishers from Recruitment Session: 1: Kei & !!!

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 2 - April 30, 2011
  • 30 participant limit
  • Block Round Robin
  • Top two finishers gain the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE, should they attend.
  • Top two finishers from Recruitment Session: 2: Xman8024 & Pyro

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 3 - May 15, 2011
  • No limit on participants
  • Single elimination
  • First place finisher gains the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE, should they attend.
  • Top finisher from BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 3: ElJihado

Hopefully the possibility of gaining this slight advantage in BEYBLADE CRUSADE will be enticing for you all! Along with BeyPoints, Faces, and prizes, of course. And as you can see, it becomes more difficult to procure the aforementioned ability with each tournament that passes. Additionally, the order in which the top finishers choose who they face in that first round will be according to which tournament they placed in, but reversed (ex. If you come in first place at the first Recruitment Session, then you will have the last choice of who you want to face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE. This way, even if someone else picks you, you can still choose not to face them if you do not want to, thus nullifying their choice, forcing them to choose someone else).


Will you be at AN on Friday night? If so, then you might want to check out our other tournament, BEYBLADE CRUSADE: Roll Call!


We encourage all Bladers, both the brand new and the old to attend BEYBLADE CRUSADE, hosted by AN GAMING! With Beyblade's popularity continuing to rise, and our efforts to make this an even bigger tournament than it has ever been in the past, this has the possibility of becoming the largest tournament we have ever hosted, which means that competition will be fiercer than ever! You don't want to miss it! Hope to see you there!

If you think you'll be able to come to BEYBLADE CRUSADE, please post here and I will start building an attendance list!

Hey guys, I've got some great news!

I just got off the phone with Ron, the director of AN GAMING. The price of admission to AN has long been a barrier to some people who wish to attend just our tournament and nothing else in the convention, but this year AN has agreed to do something they've never done before: offer a $5 ticket for entry to BEYBLADE CRUSADE. More details are forthcoming, but it's exactly as it sounds; if you wish to attend only BEYBLADE CRUSADE, you will be able to purchase this ticket. And for those of you who do want to attend the other events and programming that AN offers, your weekend/day passes will also grant you admission to the tournament, of course.
Wow, that is great!
Can't wait to pay so little.. :V
That's awesome!

How are we all going to fit? lol

That is for Ron to figure out! Tongue_out_wink

MAD TWIGHT does the moneh go to the wbo or AN?
So we don't need to buy a pass? We just pay 5 bucks and we can just play in the tournament?
The money goes to AN, the pass is $5 if your attending the tournament exclusively. (No other event at AN.)
Haha, that's amazing, considering that the price was one of the only barriers for me!
Now I just need to find an easy way to AN.... Uncertain

Last year I took the TTC. I had to take the Yonge-University-Spadina line to Lawrence West station and then the 58 bus west to Dixon Rd and City View Dr (two stops after Martin Grove Rd). You'll have to walk a bit before getting to the convention centre, but if you spot any fellow nerds, just tag along. Last time the tournament was held in a different location from the main hall, but until then I can't give you any building directions. Tongue_out

Also, Scott, there isn't a participant limit in this event, right? I read the OP, and it didn't really confirm nor deny that (though, the fact that there's like 31 participants makes me assume there isn't)/

Nope, no limit! It's kind of scary to me now that AN is going to be offering the $5 ticket LOL.

Yes, you will need a lot of help, lol. This is gonna be one long tournament...

Depending on my Bey-burnout I wouldn't totally be against just being a referee.
Hah, TO how about you just meet me at the station on the day of the tournament and go with me from there?
I'm pretty bad with directions unless I'm familiar with the place/It's hard to miss.
