The WBO is proud to announce that we will be partnering with ANIME NORTH 2015 for the eight consecutive year to host Team BeyBattle Revolution, the spiritual successor to Tag BeyBattle Revolution hosted over ten years ago at AN04 by Off the Chain! Team BeyBattle Revolution will make use of the WBO’s brand new Team Format; team up in groups of three and battle it out against Bladers from across North America in a frenzied competition to take home the Triple Crown Face and some fabulous prizes! Whose side will you choose?

What is Team Format?
First announced to great fanfare in 2014 and tested at the pilot event–BEY OR DIE–in Toronto this past September, Team Format is a new experimental format introduced by the WBO for Organized Play whereby Bladers join forces in teams of three as they battle against opposing teams individually in a series of BeyBattles.

Lead by their designated Captains, Team Format battles are comprised of what is known as a “Team BeyBattle”. Team BeyBattles consist of three separate best 3 out of 5 BeyBattles between each team member. In these BeyBattles, every round win counts! After all three BeyBattles have been completed, the winning team of that Team BeyBattle will be determined based on the final total round wins of all three BeyBattles combined! Here’s an example:

For more information about Team Format, please read the official announcement thread. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here!

Looking for team members?
Feel free to discuss that in this tournament thread, but once you have created a team, create a thread in the Team Forum to further discuss any internal team matters there!

Entry: You need an AN Pass!
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 currently have a few options to gain entrance: a) a weekend pass or b) a day pass for Saturday at AN (and Friday/Sunday Passes if you plan attend the other events on those days). Weekend Passes are currently sold out, but you can still purchase Single Day Tickets. We highly recommend that you purchase a ticket ASAP! Saturday Passes have sold out in past years as well, and there is no guarantee that they will be available at the convention itself.

The Anime North weekend has become a yearly tradition so deeply rooted in the history of the WBO. I remember attending for the first time in 2008, with a mixture of both nervousness and excitement swirling around inside me; a nervousness and excitement not necessarily wholly related to Beyblade, but to the impending connections I would make with people I had known online for years.

Eight years later–eight Anime North’s later–memories of these experiences and the people I’ve met from around the world ceaselessly occupy a special place in my mind. BEYBLADE’S NOT DEAD, BEYBLADE WAR ROOM, BEYBLADE REVIVAL CUP, BEYBLADE CRUSADE, BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, BEYBLADE REVOLUTION, GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT 2 … Some things just never change. As I always say, our AN events every year are the ultimate embodiment of what the WBO is all about fundamentally: competitive play and interacting with others. You can experience facets of those things through the forums–which is what makes them so great–but competing face to face with someone else potentially from a foreign country, only to smile and laugh with them afterwards is another experience entirely. Team BeyBattle Revolution will bring a whole new dimension to this with the team dynamics being introduced, so it surely is going to be an event for the history books! Don’t miss it.

Are you as excited about the festivities as we are?! If so, be sure to tell your friends about it! And if you haven't already, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook!

If you can figure out a way to standardize how that game would work, we can definitely consider it!

Umm ... Zero-G is MFB? Haha.
(Feb. 25, 2015  4:13 AM)Kai-V Wrote: If it were in the format of a tournament, it would take up too much space and too many people at once to be a real side event like our other side events.

It doesn't exactly have to be a tournament format. Just have like a contest of sorts to see who can make the most creative and possibly have the most original illegal combos go head to head. Judge them on weight, spin time, etc.
Question
Since I won last year is there any possible way that I can get at least some of my travel expenses paid for or is the only way I'm going to get that is though qualifiers
This is what I have for BeyBall so far:http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-BeyBall-Possible-Beyblade-Game

Still a ways to go, yet I will fix it. If you have any recommendations for it to be fixed so it can be considered for TBR, please post there Smile

I am a possible for this, hopefully I can get my tickets this Friday ^__^
I am in! Got my pass too!
Please consider hosting some educational and more casual events for beginners, and promote it across the con like we did with the battle stations. I realize tournaments are fun and important, but they only appeal to people already heavily invested in the game — people who were gonna come anyway.

Speaking of people who are gonna come, I'll be around.

I meant to say 4D in Zero G stadiums

Anyway,Im hoping that the team limit will be raised...I really wanna join LMAO or Kei

Yeah.. Im debating whether or not i wanna go.... Depends too cuz I might have an AAU Game in the U.S tht week :p
I have honestly no clue what is going on here, team battles, qualifiers matches and all that jazz.

however, i have showed up to the anime north even each year for the past.. 4 years?

anyways, i will be coming. and i guess if anyone wants an old blader, who only owns two beyblades currently, to join their team.. I'm back?

on another note, i just saw that my beypoints are 1,111.. almost makes me not want to do any more matches just to keep it like that
^I also have 1,111 and I'd love to keep it that way XD.

Still hoping Indiana can pull out a qualifier. We will see how it goes! Hopefully we can get it by the ene of March or beginning of April at least.

Even though the side events will have a competitive aspect to them so we can decide who to award some extra prizes to, we do of course mean for that aspect of the weekend to be more casual. Last year I focused too heavily on tournaments, but this year I think we have the right balance between casual fun and competition. I'll have brand new Beyblades on hand for like $5 each too for newcomers ("No Bey? No Prob!" Grin), as always.

The Battle Stations we should definitely do. I think Friday afternoon is the most appropriate time. Would anyone be interesting in helping out with that? For those who don't know, in the past we had several "Beyblade Battle Stations" set up around the con to help promote our events; you would basically just be playing Beyblade with a partner at an assigned location for a couple hours, showing people how to play Beyblade, allowing them to play, and promoting the events with fliers and WBO Promo Cards.

Just read the Team Format thread I linked to in the OP and you'll be up to speed.

Sweet. Looking forward to seeing you! You'll find a team, I'm sure; if not, we'll find one for you.

read it up.
gotta say, I am pretty excited. i have always been hoping for team play to be a thing, glad to say it is.

thanks
Definitely glad to see that you're able to make it, Lord Wolfblade! Pair up with Classik if he doesn't have a team by then! According to him, you guys go to the same school, so why not? Tongue_out
Ah yes, we do actually.
I'll see.

If i end up not getting a team, y'all can probably get me to do some stuff to help out.. i may be rusty but i still know my stuff (and am of course trying to get up to date)
All we need is hannah and team Alpha II would be complete xD

Hey, there will be a lot of great Bladers there! Also keep in mind that I've performed terribly at the AN main events since 2012, and Jesse ended up outside of the top three last year after topping the Swiss Rounds, so anything is possible!
Qualifiers have been announced for New York, North Carolina, and Connecticut!
