The WBO is proud to announce that we will be partnering with Unplugged Expo 2014 to host BEY OR DIE! What is going to make this event unique, though? BEY OR DIE will be hosted under the Standard Format, but with an exciting twist ... Teams! This event will act as a pilot for the first ever WBO Team Format (Standard) event! For more details on how this format works, see below.

Location
Unplugged Expo is being held at the Chestnut Conference Centre in downtown Toronto:

Located at University and Dundas in Toronto, the Chestnut Conference Centre is located directly behind City Hall. Conveniently located only steps away from St. Patrick Station and a block away from Dundas Station.

Downtown Toronto -
89 Chestnut St, Toronto,
ON M5G 1R1

Entry: You must register on the Unplugged Expo website!
A Blader Passport is not required for this tournament. However, you will need to purchase a weekend pass to gain entry into the convention itself. You can pre-register for Unplugged Expo until September 8th for $25.00 here. Passes will be $35 at the door.

If you want to support the WBO so we can host even better tournaments with even better prizes in the future, you can also purchase a Blader Passport at the tournament, but as was stated before, it is not mandatory for this tournament.



How will the Team Format work?



Teams of 3
In this new experimental format variant, Bladers will begin by registering in teams of three.
  • When registering, teams must provide a team name that will be used to create a Team Account on the WBO.
  • Team Accounts may be used in the future for a potential separate Team Ranking in the BeyPoints System.
  • Team Accounts can only be created by attending a Team Format tournament and registering with your team. They will have a special "Team" user group applied to them to set them apart from regular users. Do not attempt to make Team Accounts outside of tournaments or you will be warned; the "Team" user group can only be applied by Committee Members anyways.

Team Captains
  • Each team must designate one member as the “Captain”.
  • Captains have the right to remove members from their team in order to recruit new ones at any time, except during a tournament.
  • Captains can only join one team, for life. So, think carefully before you decide to form your own team; in many ways you have more freedom as a regular team member. This is important to prevent the possibility of a team of three slowly removing/adding members and then one day ending up with three entirely different members. This way, three new members can't take over a highly ranked team as their own. There is always a link back to the 'soul' of the team if the Captain remains.
  • Should a Captain choose to dissolve a team, their ranking will be nullified entirely and the team will cease to exist. One exception that will be made is if a Captain chooses to retire from Beyblade. In this case, he or she can pass on the leadership to another member, but only if the team has 50+ Team BeyBattle wins at that point in time.


Which WBO Organized Play Formats can be used?
Depending on the amount of teams who register, the tournament will be hosted in either a Round Robin or Double Elimination format.
  • 3-4 Teams: Round Robin
  • 5-9 Teams: Double Elimination
  • 9+ Teams: Single Elimination

And the Team Format can be played using any regular WBO Organized Play Format: Standard, Zero-G, Limited, Plastics, or HMS.


”Team BeyBattles”
The Team Format introduces a new concept known as the “Team BeyBattle”.
  • Each “Team BeyBattle” will consist of three regular best 3 out of 5 BeyBattles.
  • The team with the most round wins (which means a maximum of 9 ‘points’ for a team if they won all three BeyBattles 3-0) will be the victor of that particular round. This means that two strong Bladers won’t necessarily be able to carry one weak Blader on their team.
  • Each Blader will play one BeyBattle against one of the opposing three team members. This means that Bladers cannot play more than one BeyBattle per Team BeyBattle, except in the case of a tie (explained below).

For example:

Team A: Kei, Blader DJ, The Boss
Team B: Kai-V, rooneyt, bugturtles

Kei vs. bugturtles - Kei Wins 3-2
Blader DJ vs. Kai-V - Blader DJ Wins 3-0
The Boss vs. rooneyt - rooneyt Wins 3-1

Final Score: 7-5 Team A

Before each BeyBattle begins, teams will have a brief period to decide who is playing that particular round. When both teams confirm they are ready, the judge will ask for both Bladers to step forward to the Beystadium. If at that point a player from one team does not advance in an effort to see who they will be playing against, an automatic BeyBattle loss will be issued to the offending team.

What happens in the case of a tie?
Here’s another example:

Team A: Beholder, Uwik, Khel
Team B: SK, Alice, Bey Brad

Beholder vs. Bey Brad - Beholder Wins 3-2
Uwik vs. Alice - Uwik Wins 3-1
SK vs. Khel - SK Wins 3-0

Final Score: 6-6

In this case, one final BeyBattle will be played to determine the winner. However, the opposing teams will select the member that represents their opponent in the tiebreak. Each team will select a member, the Captains will notify the judge privately, and then the judge will announce the match up.

Team Size: Unlimited!
Teams must play in groups of three during Team Format tournaments, but this doesn’t mean that teams are limited to three Bladers!
  • Teams are unlimited in size, but can have only one Captain.
  • Teams can be represented anywhere globally. For example: Team Kai-V can play in an event in the UK against Team Blitz, with members who have been approved by Team Captain Kai-V.
  • Teams may only participate in one Team Format event per month. This means that Team Kai-V cannot play in an event in both Montreal and the UK on the same week, for example.
  • If the Team Captain is not present to participate in a given tournament, a “provisional Captain” must be designated for that tournament to represent his/her team.
  • If new team members are representing a pre-existing team in a tournament, they must ask the Team Captain to PM the host to inform them that they have been approved to join their team and represent them.

”But I don’t have a team!”
Don’t worry! If you plan on attending a Team Format tournament but do not have a team, simply register yourself and we will find team member(s) for you from other players who have registered by themselves, or as groups of two.

Additionally, don't forget that we also have a Team Forum! You can try looking for team members there.

Team Format and the BeyPoint System
All individual BeyBattles played within the Team Format will be processed within the BeyPoint System as any BeyBattle in a normal tournament would be.

Team Format and Faces/Credits
Winning team members of Team Format tournaments will receive the brand new Triple Crown Face [Image: TripleCrown-Face.png]! All three team members who participated in a specific Team Format tournament will receive the Face.

Winning team members will also receive +2 Credits for winning the tournament, in addition to participation and majority win Credits.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to this one, I have some really important things to do, plus I forgot to pay $25 to pre-order it, and at the moment I don't have enough to pay for the $35 entrance fee.

Not sure about my brother, but as of now, move me to the possible list.
I am not going to be able to make it Unhappy have fun though!
Quote:Ya, i'm not quite sure if i can make it,
But honestly guys, would anyone like to be part of my team, because i have no one on my team, and i really would not want to be a loner, it's not meCrying
To be honest I don't know if ill be able to make it let alone afford this month (I rather save my money and buy a BB-10)

4X right spin string launchers (mint)
Duo metal wheel
2X wyvang

If any of you are selling any of these, please let me know, I’ll buy them for any price, but please don’t make it an unfair price
By the way guys, it is a long way for Valentin and I to travel there (even compared to Anime North), so we would definitely prefer if you all already in Toronto could commit to going to make sure that the event is actually successful to the minimum. You all also have to understand that it will be our first time at that convention, and while it was indeed them who approached us to host something for them, it would be really, really disappointing if the event totally failed with barely anyone showing up. I sincerely hope that even with school, you can make some sacrifice like Valentin and I might do to ensure the event lives.
Me and The Sponge will be coming now, however I'll let you guys know if anything comes up. (These are on terms me and Scott dicussed)

I won't fail you guys Wink
Now that Kai-V is coming I can't miss

Im coming no matter what!

LOL I see ur motivating more Toronto Bladers to come! I'm still coming so yeah..
Ok guys, i am going to make the kijiji ad up for B.O.D now, so we can get more bladers to playSmile

Not to be rude or anything, but I think it may be best if I or someone else do it. Only because you have a lot of spelling mistakes and things like that and the ad is better when it looks professional.

Actually, you can make a draft for the Kijiji ad, and then I'll edit it and then you can put it up, how does that sound?
No, because if someone wanted to do it, they would do it, I've been planning it out with kei a couple of weeks ago, so i'll do it!
I only make mistakes because i don't look back and edit sometimes, unless i'm tying to make something look professional, but since i'm standing up to do this job, i'll make this thing as professional as you can get!
If you want, i'll show you it once i'm done.
Well which Kijiji account are you going to use since I generally do all the Kijiji ads for the tournaments on a specialized WBO Gmail account that's linked to my personal phone. If you use your account it may take longer to be posted since that is what usually happens with Kijiji.

Go ahead and post it, just no need to be so feisty.
Kai-V how did you organized this trip?!I'm interested so may be we can discuss that in PM!
