I also haven’t seen archer Hercules in a while on the winning combos list so it’s nice to see it again. The Cho-Z Spriggan combo was a bit strange to see on the winning combos list, but there was probably a good reason to use it over something like LS.

It's not that strange, really. Imperial has good stamina, so plastic-based attack Drivers have good synergy with it.

Archer Hercules hasn't really gone anywhere here in Toronto, so that wasn't a surprise either to me! It definitely still has a place in the metagame.

I'm not sure how Zankye used Cho-Z Spriggan, but he had a Lord Xt+ combo in his deck as well, so it would have been impossible to also use it on Hybrid.

It was Retsu! I've edited JoJo's post.

I only used Cz Spriggan for one round and only had it incase anyone used Balkesh B3 0/00 Wall Bearing other than that didn't really use it.
αpocalypse - 11/3/19
Toronto, ON, Canada - Burst Format

[Image: T4G4KjU.jpg]

1st: BladerBeast
Lord Spriggan 0 Cross Xtend+    
Balkesh B3 00 Wall Bearing (Deck Format Finals Only)

2nd: MDK Shady
Zwei Diabolos Hybrid    
Lord Pegasus 0 Cross Xtend+    
Balkesh B3 00 Wall Bearing    
Judgement Valkyrie Blitz Quick' Goku

3rd: originalzankye
Lord Pegasus 0 Cross Xtend+    
Knockout Odin Blitz Atomic Goku

4th: Tahoor

Hybrid made it’s Toronto debut during this tournament when MDK Shady was able to OS my Tact Longinus Xt+ combo with it 3-1. Otherwise, it was pretty much your standard Toronto tournament as of late: Lord Xt+, Balkesh B3 Bearing, Judgment combos, and a sprinkling of Atomic combos. henwooja1 and I had some unique combos in our decks (at least relative to the above), but unfortunately weren’t able to make it past the top 8 for this event. It was cool to see Zankye using Knockout Odin, though; that was one of the Layers I had my eye on going into this event (albeit in a slightly different combination).

I had put in a lot of time testing the new releases prior to this event, but unfortunately wasn’t able to launch my attack type properly against Zankye in the first round of the finals. Sadly, when testing afterwards, it went much better for me hahaha. Was able to improve this at Beyblade West this past weekend, but still a lot of work to do in other areas!



γenesis - 11/3/19
Toronto, ON, Canada - Burst Classic Format (Club, Pick 3, Choose 1)

1st: henwooja1
Neptune Spread Revolve
Wyvern Heavy Revolve

2nd: Kei
Odin Heavy Defense

3rd: Tahoor
Acid Anubis Yell Eternal
Neptune Heavy Revolve

Don’t pay much attention to this lol. It was super cold, there was only five of us, it was the second event of the day and … yeah. I tried some wacky combos in the first couple rounds (Deathscyther Armed Bullet), but after they failed miserably I just went to OHD for the win. Still fun!

Also, it's ironic to me that after including V2.G.Ul’ in my selection of three combos several times in this event ... it's what ultimately defeated me at Beyblade West: LA Burst Classic Bey Clash #3 this weekend. Guess I should have believed in it more!

Maybe wasn’t the best environment to fully assess the “Pick 3, Choose 1” format, so I’d like to try it again sometime.

Ah, I see. So you did win at least one round with it, right?

I think the DABl combo manly failed because the combo completly relies on the overall balance of the combo. If it's a tiny bit wobbly it can majorly effect the performance of the bey. Also, it should have bursted my Neptune Revolve combo but my blue revolve seems to have an extremely good spring on it, making it barley able to beat Justin's V2 last month.
