FROSTY LAYERS and ICY BOTTOMS are two tournaments held on the same day at the Maryland region's usual tournament location, Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Park. FROSTY LAYERS was the second Burst format tournament Maryland hosted, coming after [[Beyblade Bursts on the Scene: Maryland]]. After FROSTY LAYERS, ICY BOTTOMS occured, an MFB Limited format tournament. Both of these tournaments were hosted by *Ginga*.

*Greninja Master

Both tournaments were performed in Round Robin format, with the three highest scoring players advancing to the finals. In FROSTY LAYERS, Stars, Time, and Greninja Master advanced the to finals with records of 5-2, 5-2, and 6-1, respectively. Stars' and Time's advancements to the finals were no surprise as they were, at the time, some of the top ranked bladers in Maryland. However, Greninja Master's advancement with the superior record over all other players came as a shock to many. Greninja Master previously had placed in only one other tournament in his career. Additionally, Beyblade Burst was the newest format Maryland had faced, with only one previous Burst format tournament in that location. This meant that the majority of players, including Greninja Master, had to borrow parts in order to compete. Even more surprising, *Ginga*, the host of the tournament, had the second largest Beyblade Burst collection in Maryland at the time, and yet he still ended up with a 4-3 record. In the finals however, Greninja Master didn't fare so well. He had a record of 0-2, losing to both Time and Stars, ending him up with third place. Stars did slightly better with a record of 1-1, winning against Greninja Master but losing to Time, whose skill with attack types was too much for Star's Odin Heavy Defense, a popular combination in the Beyblade Burst metagame at the time. Time took first place, using both Valkyrie Heavy Accel and Kerbeus Heavy Survive. Stars only won with Odin Heavy Defense despite using a variety of other combinations, such as Unicorn Ring Survive. Meanwhile, Greninja Master soloed the tournament with Ragnaruk Armed Massive. The prizes, in order of placing, included:

*Choice of B-20 Horusood Spread Edge, B-17 Odin Central Blow, or B-11 Launcher Grip + Gold Face and 3+ Credits
*Choice of last two Beyblade Burst boosters that remain from the First Place Prize, Silver Face And 2+ Credits
*Last Beyblade Burst booster that remains from the Second Place Prize, Bronze Face With 1+ Credits

ICY BOTTOMS, the Limited format tournament of the day, was generally more preferred by tournament participants due to its familiarity. During the preliminary rounds, it was quite competitive due to the larger access of parts by the players. Two players, Time and *Ginga*, used a single combination the entire tournament, MF-L Scythe Hades LW105 MF and MSF Dark Knight Girago 90 RF, respectively. Time was very successful with his Scythe Hades combination, going undefeated during the preliminary rounds. In order to do so, he did a variety of launch techniques including a launching from a higher spot than normal, Sliding Shoot, Weak Launch, and finally Tornado Stalling. Even with these techniques, some rounds were decided by a KO or even a single rotation. Also advancing to the finals was Stars, who had to beat out Greninja Master for the third spot into the finals. Both had a record of (4-3) and were forced to do a tiebreaker. In the finals, *Ginga* wasn't as successful as he was in the preliminary rounds, going (0-2). Stars, did decently, winning against *Ginga* but losing against Time. Throughout the tournament, Time never used a different combination besides his aforementioned MF-L Scythe Hades 90MF. Despite the opponents knowning this, none were successful, and the final results put Time at first place, Stars at second place, and *Ginga* at third.

Does anybody know if my username will cause problems on the wiki due to formatting coding?
Eh, no idea about your username unfortunately hah. It will be a surprise.

I would just change "who's" to "whose", as it should be, as well as use a different expression instead of two "didn't fare so well". Otherwise, it looks like, especially in the description of FROSTY LAYERS, there should be more about the preliminary rounds, but perhaps there is really nothing more worthy of mentioning ? That is something you and the participants can confirm.
Alright, having seen the edit now, if you think there is really nothing else to add about other Bladers' performance, then this should be good to be published. There is just one thing I have to be strict about : it is not grammatically or newbie-friendly to write "a Burst" when they are actually Burst Beyblades or Burst Beyblade Products. To anybody, "a Burst" is what happens when a Beyblade explodes. So, you should change the occasions when you used "a Burst" to one of the two aforementioned expressions instead.

Can you post a link to the article here when it is published ? And thank you for writing about this event, it was very interesting.
Nice, that looks awesome. Thank you for finally publishing it, it looks very professional. Can I leave you to move your own thread to the Approved Drafts sub-forum hah ?
