BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2
SATURDAY, MAY 26, 2012
Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel - Northern Spy Room
hosted by AN GAMING @ Anime North 2012
STANDARD (MFB/BMF) FORMAT


9 AM - Free Battle & Set Up
11 AM - Registration for BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2
12:30 PM - BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2

THE CRUSADE CONTINUES! For the fifth year in a row, the WBO is proud to announce that, in association with AN GAMING division of ANIME NORTH 2012, we will be hosting BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2! Last year BEYBLADE CRUSADE ended up becoming one of the largest Beyblade tournaments ever hosted in Canada; Bladers from across Ontario–and even from as far away as New York–made the journey to Toronto, and the competition was fierce. Surely, it will be even larger, and even fiercer this year!

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 have a few options to gain entrance: a) a weekend pass, which have no been sold out, b) a day pass for Saturday at AN (if you wish to participate in all of the events and programming that AN has to offer), or c) the $5 Beyblade Pass.

The $5 Beyblade Pass will only grant you entry into BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, and can be purchased during registration for the tournament. This is the best option for Bladers who do not wish to experience the rest of what AN has to offer.

Note: Just to clarify, the $5 Beyblade Pass is only for Saturday's event, BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, not BEYBLADE CRUSADE: Roll Call 2 on Friday night. If you wish to attend this event you will have to purchase a Friday Day Pass if you have already not purchased a Weekend Pass.


Like last year, in an effort to build excitement and anticipation for the main event at ANIME NORTH, we will be hosting three "BEYBLADE CRUSADE RECRUITMENT SESSIONS" between the end of this month, and the week before BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2:

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 4 - March 24, 2012
  • Top two finishers gain the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, should they attend.
  • Top two finishers from Recruitment Session: 4: theunderdog & JesseObre

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 5 - April 28, 2012
  • Top two finishers gain the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, should they attend.
  • Top two finishers from Recruitment Session: 5: neilanpolbeley & 1234beyblade

BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 6 - May 13, 2012
  • First place finisher gains the ability to choose who they face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2, should they attend.
  • First place finisher from Recruitment Session: 6: Kei

Hopefully the possibility of gaining this slight advantage in BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2 will be enticing for you all! Along with the BeyPoints, Faces, and prizes, of course. 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 Recruitment Session 4, then you will have the last choice of who you want to face in the first round of BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2. 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).






Bladers! We want YOU to bring your friends to BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2 and Recruitment Session's 5 & 6! But why should you do this, you ask? Because the more Bladers you recruit, the better the chance you'll have at winning some cool Metal Fight Beyblade ZERO-G prizes! And new Bladers equals new friends, new competition, and an insurance that Beyblade tournaments in Toronto will continue to be as exciting (and sometimes cold) as ever!


Rules
  • Step 1: Have your friend(s) create an account here on worldbeyblade.org.

  • Step 2: Bring your friend(s)–who have never played in a WBO tournament–to BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 5, BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 6, and BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2 and have them compete. I will mark down as they register that they are a friend of ______, so be sure to tell them to tell me that you were the person who "recruited" them!

  • Step 3: For each friend you bring, you'll be given an entry into the random draw that will take place during BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2 at ANIME NORTH 2012 on May 26th.
Additionally, if your friend plays in one of the three tournaments, and then returns for a second ... you will be given one bonus entry into the draw!

For those of you can't find any people among your regular friends to come, don't hesitate to round up people at ANIME NORTH itself, hah.

Yup. I'm that dedicated. I have time shares and stuff, also, I was promised a trip to Canada from my dad. Also, my grandma's birthday is the day of the tourney, so we might visit Canada for a week since she's never been.
For sure we would really appreciate having you there, it would be an honour, in a way, hah.
Wear a deadmau5 helmet Kyubi, we'll recognize you then haha.

I asked the question about 2 days ago, I'll see if I can get a response this weekend. Hopefully I can get to see you guys up in Toronto!
It is very cool that all of you are coming from outside to Toronto in Canada, seriously, but a lot of you are good hosts, and we do need to have many tournaments organised on BeyDays elsewhere too, hah.

Which one?
Hey guys is anyone willing to sell me a Beat Lynx TH170 WD for $24?
are there still passes available for purchase online?

There is about 1500 weekend passes still available.
Where in toronto is it add me to possible anyways!Smile
If I make it just note that I don't look like I'm 12 (as it says on my age) because I am short and a little childish for a 12 year old!Wink(seriously,and don't say I'm not 12 because I am)
did u talk to the AN organizer? and are doing the same prize like last year?
Hi guys!

The other day I spoke with Ron over the phone, and while he could not absolutely confirm that the $5-6 Beyblade Pass would be in place once again this year, he put the probability of it being instated at 90%. He recommended that everyone still purchase a day/weekend pass for the entire convention in case it does not happen (he is not the person making the decision), if they are able to.

He also said it might help improve the chances of it happening (and of us getting a better room, among other things!) if anyone who attended AN last year could e-mail all of these addresses, expressing how great they thought the convention/AN GAMING/BEYBLADE CRUSADE were last year:
  • info@animenorth.com 
  • conchair@animenorth.com
  • programming@animenorth.com
  • gaming@animenorth.com
And make sure to let them know how much you're looking forward to the event this year!

Additionally, he told me to make sure this fact was made public: "Ron is awesome!"

LOL

(He really does love us)

Anyways, now for another announcement ...

The thread for BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 5 is up!
hey can you put me down to i will be showing up to
[Huge quote removed.]

what happens if they went to tournaments can u still recruit them?
You recruit someone to something they do not know yet, something new to them, by definition, so no, you would not be able to "recruit" them.

Exactly. They have to be a new Blader, or simply a Blader who has never played in one of our tournaments. As I said in my previous post:

Kei Wrote:Bring your friend(s)–who have never played in a WBO tournament–to BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 5, BEYBLADE CRUSADE Recruitment Session: 6, and BEYBLADE CRUSADE 2 and have them compete.

That's the whole point of the campaign ... to encourage new Bladers to start playing in our tournaments! Smile
How far is Collingwood, ON from the event?
Apparently approximately two hours away, based on Google Maps.
Why don't you take Sagittario-Fire and me off the attendees list. I'm planning on doing our next Michigan tournament that weekend to help celebrate Bey Days here as well.

I'm sad both of you won't be able to make it, but your decision is respectable as well! We definitely need as many hosts as possible to host tournaments around the world; it's not all just about the AN tournament haha.
