==Tournament Report==
The tournament was run in Block Round Robin format, with two blocks of five players and one block of six players. One feature that made the tournament especially interesting and unique was the use of all three types of Zero-G Stadium. Following the announcement of every match, the stadium the battle would take place in was randomly decided and also announced to both players, meaning that they had to adjust their combos and strategies accordingly.
Block 1: Stormscorpio1, TigeroftheWest, Kerbecs kid, FlashFireblaze, BladerLight, Jblader111
Block 2: [)ragon, PegasesUnite, Peregrine, Pegasus Pride, stupaoz
Block 3: Dark_Mousy, Thunder Dome, Ali naser, Wombat, WaterBlader

===Preliminaries===
====Block 1====
As the winner of the BEYBLADE REVOLUTION Zero-G tournament earlier in the year, Stormscorpio1 was the player expected to advance to the finals, however, after losing to FlashFireblaze’s Kraken Dragooon BGrin using Kraken Genbu SA165TB and an upset loss from tournament newcomer Jblader111, he failed to advance with a record of 3-2. Instead, FlashFireblaze and Kerbecs kid were tied with 4-1 records, and had to play a tiebreaker match to determine who would advance, which FlashFireblaze won. As for the other participants in the block, Jblader111 and BladerLight both had scores of 2-3, while TigeroftheWest finished with a 0-5 record.

====Block 2====
This block was perhaps the most easily decided of the three – as the majority of the players in the block were younger siblings of more serious bladers, [)ragon was the only high-ranking competitive player of the bunch, and was able to advance with a 4-0 record using the combos Genbu Genbu SR200TB, Duo Cygnus BGrin, and Genbu Genbu E230MB. Pegasus pride and PegasesUnite finished with scores of 3-1 and 2-2 respectively, while stupaoz had a 1-3 record and Peregrine was last with a 0-4 record.

====Block 3====
Similarly to the first block, the winner of Block 3 was also a surprise – despite having never participated in a Zero-G event before, Wombat managed to go undefeated in the block, winning a close battle 3-2 against Dark_Mousy’s MSF-M Leviathan Dragooon F230CF using Balrog Wyvern AD145GF and using BGrin-based combos against Thunder Dome, Ali naser, and WaterBlader. Dark_Mousy and WaterBlader both had records of 2-2, while Thunder Dome and Ali naser were tied with 1-3 records.  

===Final Round===
Since only the highest-scoring blader from each block advanced, the finals consisted of three players: FlashFireblaze, [)ragon, and Wombat. The first match pitted Wombat against FlashFireblaze in the Attack stadium, where Wombat was able to defeat FlashFireblaze’s Leviathan Dragooon F230CF 3-1 with Balrog Wyvern AD145GF. Wombat then had to face [)ragon in the Defense stadium, using Kraken Genbu BGrin against [)ragon’s Leviathan Dragooon F230CF and losing 0-3 by a combination of Zero-G KO and outspin. During the third battle, FlashFireblaze managed to overcome [)ragon in a Leviathan Dragooon F230CF mirror match, leaving all of the finalists with one win and one loss and forcing a three-way tiebreaker.

The first match of the tiebreaker was held in the Balance Stadium, between Wombat and FlashFireblaze. Both players used the same combos as in their last battle. The lack of a third pocket in the stadium made FlashFireblaze’s Dragooon custom notably harder for Wombat to Zero-G KO, and although Wombat was able to outspin FlashFireblaze’s F230CF setup one time with GF, he was defeated 2-3. The next match had FlashFireblaze against [)ragon in the Defense stadium, and with Zero-G KOs being less of an issue, this time [)ragon was able to secure a 3-0 victory in the mirror match via outspin due to having a more freely-spinning F230 than his opponent. The final match between [)ragon and Wombat took place in the Attack Stadium, with [)ragon using Leviathan Dragooon F230CF once again, while Wombat opted to use Balrog Wyvern AD145GF this time. Although Wombat was able to manage two KOs, one of them out of the top of the stadium, [)ragon ultimately outspun him three times to win the battle and take first place in the tournament, with FlashFireblaze in second place and Wombat in third.

This is perfect as usual. I would have liked to know perhaps more about the players' Beyblade selections before the finals, or what their strategies were, but since that was three years ago it can understandably be impossible to remember hah.

Can you go ahead and publish this when you have the time?
