Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to some WBO Organized Play rulebooks and the Organizers' Guide. View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:



Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT: All Rulebooks: Spinning Definition Updated
  • Plastics & HMS Rulebook: New Part-Specific Rulings Added
  • Organizer’s Guide: “Video Review Policy” Added
  • Judge’s Guide: “Video Review Protocol” Updated
  • Judge’s Guide: “Asking for Help” Section Updated



All Rulebook Updates

Spinning Definition Updated

All Rulebooks – Gameplay Appendix: Spinning Wrote:A Beyblade is still considered to be spinning so long as the top half of it is visibly moving the same spin direction it was launched in. If a Beyblade starts spinning again after it has stopped, the round does not resume as the round has already concluded

As Beyblade Burst has progressed, instances of extremely difficult-to-call, close matches between two Beyblades spinning in the opposite direction of each other have skyrocketed. The previously existing definition of "Spinning" attempted to explicitly outline our intention for determining this fundamental aspect of the game. But after much debate we've decided that a simpler definition–as presented above–will help to avoid some confusion and subjective interpretation of the terms used in the longer, previous definition.

The dictionary definition of the word "spinning" or "spin" inherently has a component to it that suggests or is related to turning or rotating. Knowing this, one key difference to note in the new definition for our purposes–Beyblade matches–is the usage of the wording "visibly moving" rather than what was previously used ("visibly rotating"). 

Practically speaking, as long as a Beyblade has been spinning in the same spin direction it was launched in, it merely needs to be visibly moving in that same direction for longer than its opponent at the end of a battle to be considered to have spun longer; it does not need to, strictly speaking, be rotating around its axis for the purposes of our definition. To be more precise, our definition concerns itself technically not with defining 'spinning' itself, but with what constitutes "still spinning" in extreme, less obvious situations such as the end of matches between Beyblades spinning in the opposite direction of each other.

Please note the additional part-specific rulings for the Plastics & HMS rulebook outlined in the section below as well.

For reference, the old definition can be found below:




Plastics & HMS Rulebook Updates

New Part-Specific Rulings Added
Plastic & HMS Format Rulebook – Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings Wrote:Gyro Engine Gear (Flame Pegasus/Thunder Pegasus/Capricorn Strike G)
A Beyblade using Gyro Engine Gear is considered to be spinning as long as the metal Gyro part is visibly moving the same spin direction it was launched in, regardless of whether the top half of the Beyblade has stopped or not. If a Beyblade starts spinning again after it has stopped, the battle does not resume as the battle has already concluded. 

Gyro Mode (Magical Ape MS)
A Beyblade using Gyro Mode is considered to be spinning when the outer gyro shell is visibly moving the same spin direction it was launched in. If the gyro starts spinning again after it has stopped, the round does not resume as the round has already concluded. 

Bunshin Core (Phantom Fox MS)
A Beyblade using Bunshin Core is considered to be spinning as long as either half of the Beyblade is visibly moving the same spin direction it was launched in. If any part of the Beyblade starts spinning again after both halves have stopped, the battle does not resume as the battle has already concluded.

This trio of part-specific rulings was added to clarify some exceptions to the application of the above general spinning definition.





Organizer’s Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Organizers-Guide.png]

“Video Review Policy” Added

Tournament Management – Video Review Policy Wrote:Organizers may choose to allow or disallow video review of rounds from consideration by judges at their events.

We recommend whether you choose to allow it or not, announcing your video review policy at the beginning of the event.

Depending on your policy, please note:

  • If you choose to disallow video review, attendees may still independently record matches. However, they may not be reviewed during the event.
  • If video review is permitted for use by judges, we recommend having them use the WBO Video Review Protocol outlined in the Judge’s Guide for all applicable matches.

Video review is supplemental to a judge’s initial call. The judge’s final call is always final and never insufficient if they do not review any video.

In order to give Organizers greater flexibility when it comes to controlling the flow and timing of their events, we have added the above Video Review Policy to the Organizer's Guide. We hope that in combination with the new spinning definition, this policy will help Organizers avoid as much as possible lengthy video reviews of nearly impossible-to-call opposite spin stamina matches or even choose to not allow them altogether if it better suits their situation and community.

For those that do choose to use it, note our recommendation that all matches within the stage(s) you permit it for are recorded when the WBO Video Review Protocol recommends it if possible. This ensures that all players have the same ability to benefit from additional reviews by judges.

One way or another, setting an expectation before your event begins is key so that all players are on the same page when it comes to what will and will not be permitted with regards to video review.





Judge’s Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Judges-Guide.png]

“Video Review Protocol” updated
Judge\s Guide - WBO Video Review Protocol Wrote:WBO Video Review Protocol’s use is recommended when two players have had 2 consecutive draws.  Once initiated, each time the same 2 combos play each other in the same match, the WBO Video Review Protocol will be utilIzed.  Below are the step-by-step process of the video review:

  1. A judge calls 2 consecutive draws between 2 combos.
  2. Starting from the 3rd battle, appoint one person to record the 'official' video for the battle. Only this video will be considered for review.
  3. Play the battle. Video is recorded and reviewed by the judge of the match, and by another judge who is available. Both judges must observe the live battle as well as review the video footage.
  4. Each judge decides in secret which player the victory goes to, or if the battle is a draw.
  5. The judges reveal to each other the winner of the battle simultaneously.  A draw only occurs when both judges declare the battle a draw, or when the 2 judges give different players the win.

Green text is updated and or new.

The Video Review Protocol has been updated to account for our previously announced updated consecutive draw rules and language updates.

The brand new additions are under #2-3. We've recommended that one person be appointed to record the 'official' video for the battle. This is important especially in situations where many people may be recording a match. Considering only the official video will ensure that a decision can be made swiftly and without additional input from non-judges.

“Asking for Help” section updated

Judge\s Guide – Asking For Help Wrote:Judges are expected to always rule based on certainty. If at any point during a match you are unsure of a particular ruling or would like a second opinion, do not hesitate to consult the rulebook or ask for help from a fellow judge. It’s always best to be safe rather than sorry!

The above was added to make it crystal clear that judges should be rendering decisions based on certainty. For instance, this means that if they aren't using video, they shouldn't be calling victories if they are not certain.

Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to some WBO Organized Play rulebooks and the Organizers' Guide. View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:



Updates Overview
  • All Rulebooks: First Stage – Consecutive Draws: Limit Reduced from 3 to 2
  • All Rulebooks: Final Stage – Deck Match Type: Battle Limit (15 Rounds) Added
  • All Rulebooks: Legal Equipment – Foreign Substances & Physical Modification Ruling Updates



All Rulebooks Updates
First Stage – Consecutive Draws: Limit Reduced from 3 to 2
The battle limit for consecutive draws across all Match Types in the first stage has now been reduced from 3 to 2.

Why did we make this change?
The increased accuracy offered by allowing three consecutive draws ultimately probably wasn't worth the amount of times that it would actually make a difference in matches. This seems clear now after having initially implemented the rule forcing three consecutive draws before advancing.

Given the struggles we've had with the length of some events lately, and it generally being in our best interests to help Organizers host events of a more reasonable length, we see this as a positive change to Organized Play.

Final Stage – Deck Match Type: Battle Limit (15 Rounds) Added
A battle limit of 15 rounds has now been added to the Deck Match Type.

The "Battle Limit & Consecutive Draws" section of all rulebooks has been separated into a section for First Stage (what currently existed) along with the following new section for the Final Stage:

All Rulebooks – Battle Limit & Consecutive Draws (Final Stage) Wrote:All final stage matches using the Deck Match Type have a battle limit of 15 battles. If a fifteenth battle is played and,

One player has more points than the other:
  • Player with more points wins the match.
The score is tied: the match score remains as is, continues, and the first player to score a point wins the match.

Why did we make this change?
We've improved the First Stage with things like the battle limit and consecutive draws rule, but nothing was done to the Deck Match Type used in the Final Stage.

The Final Stage was conceived along with a new Match Type for it–WBO Deck–back when draws were not anywhere near the problem they are today.

The WBO Deck Match Type itself was not designed to work for the current Burst Format environment. And we don't want to force events to take longer than they should. It's not feasible for everyone.

Adding a battle limit will help to speed up the Deck Match Type. Implementing this alone also helps to avoid compromising the advantage owed to the loser of each round by forcing a re-pick at any point.

Especially as the battle limit gets closer, players in a disadvantageous position (ex. Down 4-3) will be forced into a different strategy since they will lose otherwise. Doing so will then increase the chances the battle will end faster.

The limit for first stage matches and all other existing match types is 10 battles.

Unlike all other Match Types, because the Deck Match Type goes to 5 points, the battle limit should be higher.

With the limit at 15 for the Deck Match Type, the ratio of battles permitted per point required is roughly the same (3.33 for First Stage, 3 for Deck Match Type if the limit is 15).

This change does not necessarily solve for the situation where it is 4-4 or 3-3 and draws continue indefinitely, but it should help in many situations where that it not the case.

In the future, we can consider other methods of improving the speed of the Final Stage as needed.


Legal Equipment – Foreign Substances & Physical Modification Ruling Updates
The "Foreign Substances & Physical Modification" and "Significantly Worn Parts" sections in each rulebook have been replaced with the following:

All Rulebooks – Additional Equipment Regulations (Illegal Section) Wrote:Foreign Substances: Beyblade and launcher parts cannot be painted or coated in any way that affects their performance except in the methods explicitly outlined in the green section below. Bladers who intentionally modify the performance illegally of their equipment will be disqualified and potentially banned from future WBO events.

All Rulebooks – Additional Equipment Regulations (Legal Section) Wrote:Physical Modification:
Unless explicitly stated otherwise by another rule, Beyblade and launcher parts can only be physically modified through:

  • Battle with other Beyblades of the same series.
  • Launching a Beyblade into a Beyblade stadium.
  • Assembling a Beyblade or launcher with parts that fit and are intended to be used together based on the part composition of the series in question.
  • Displacement of part components that have give to them by hand.

Minor physical modifications caused by other means (such as accidentally dropping a Beyblade onto the floor) may be permitted with judge approval. Please ask a judge if you are unsure if your part is legal.

Why did we make this change?
The previous "Foreign Substances & Modification" rule was first written many years ago and had never been questioned or touched since.

However, there were a few problems:

1. "Foreign Substances" and "Physical Modification" can be considered separate issues as physical modification can occur without the application of a foreign substance.
2. We have always allowed for other parts that need to be bent to 'fit' or for physical modifications such as winder straightening, so by not explicitly stating that, our rules may seem inconsistent when you look at how we handle these things.
3. The game has evolved a lot since the existing definition was written. There is a lot more obvious and official tolerance for certain types of physical modification now that changes performance.

Along with this, we recognized that we can't expect all volunteer judges to even know about every possible minor physical modification.

Ultimately, there was no tangible benefit to not permitting a more lenient stance on physical modification within these more explicit, set parameters.

If there are any exceptions that prove to be particularly powerful because of this, we will announce and publish them under the part-specific rulings for individual formats at a later date.

Hey World Bladers!

To ensure our rulebooks are clear and consistent, we've updated the terms and definitions which describe parts of a tournament. From now on the following terms and definitions will be used:

  • Battle - A single fight withing a match
  • Match - A series of battles between two Bladers with one ultimate result
  • Round - A section of a stage within a tournament composed of multiple matches
  • Stage - A section of a tournament composed of multiple rounds

This is inline with how the community as a whole uses these terms. The previous inconsistencies within the rulebooks and organizer guide have been updated.

We are thrilled to announce that th!nk has joined the WBO Staff team!

He will be focusing his efforts on helping to promote WBO Organized Play not only internally within the community, but externally through our social media channels.

With his vast knowledge of all areas of competitive Beyblade, deep experience with the community since he first joined the WBO over 10 years ago, and writing ability, we thought that there might not be anyone better suited to the role than him.

Everyone, please join us in welcoming him to the team!
Hey World Bladers!

Last October, we implemented a ruling which restricted Driver variants, preventing the use of two or more of the same named Driver within Deck Format rule sets. This was implemented in an effort to both encourage creativity and diversity among combinations, and attempt to steer away from a metagame overrun with stamina variants.

However, as more part variants have been introduced in recent months as opposed to new named Drivers, we have begun to feel that this policy has the potential to inadvertently affect the number of players able to play in events, which is far from our intention as many of you can imagine.

With this in mind, effective immediately, we have made the decision to revert this ruling and players may once again use any combination of Driver variants within Multiple Beyblade Tournament Types, including P3C1 and 3v3 events, and Deck Format Finals. As an example, this now means your combinations for any Multiple Beyblade Tournament Type may now include Xtreme, Xtreme' and Metal Xtreme, should you choose to do so.

Previous Ruling:
All Rulebooks – Gameplay Appendix Wrote:Multiple Beyblade Tournament Type Advanced Rulings:
  • Only one version (regular/Dash/SlingShock/HyperSphere/Metal/High etc.) of a Driver is permitted in Deck Format.

Updated Ruling:
All Rulebooks – Gameplay Appendix Wrote:Multiple Beyblade Tournament Type Advanced Rulings:
  • Including any combination of regular/Dash/Metal/High/SlingShock/HyperSphere/QuadDrive, etc. versions of a Driver is permitted.

Click below to read the updated ruling within the Burst Format rulebook. This ruling has also been added into the Multiple Beyblade Tournament Type Advanced Rulings section of each relevant rulebook.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support of WBO Organized Play! We appreciate any and all feedback and are always looking to improve and clarify things where possible.
Over the past few months, the WBO Community has come together to work openly in the forums, and the WBO Discord, on a Burst format centered around the BeyBlade Burst GT era.  The experimental format is temporarily named Burst GT Format (BGT).

This format is now available for Organizers to host unranked experimental events.  We are looking for tournaments data to provide development feedback to help perfect the ruleset.



About Burst GT Format (BGT)

Due to the large power-creep caused by Super King/Sparking and Dynamite Battle releases, GT and most of Cho Z Layer releases have lost their place within any format the WBO offers. The large weight difference mean that these releases simply cannot compete in the Burst Standard Format. So we're trying to give them a place that they can be used again.

Many players have these parts laying around somewhere completely unusable in competitive play. A lot of relevant parts are currently easily accessible due to the contemporary Hasbro Pro Series releases.  There is no time like the present to experiment with this format. 

But this won't just simply be a predictable repeat of the GT meta.  The MFB remakes and some early Super King/Sparking layers are being put into the mix.  Plus, all drivers release to date will be legal in this format, which spices up the metagame.

But this ruleset isn't perfect yet, and we need the help from the community to perfect it. We're looking for experimental tournaments to be hosted using this ruleset to provide us with competitive event data to base decisions on, as well as feedback and discussion on what the community thinks about the rules in place.

So what are you waiting for? Come help us make the best ruleset we can for Burst GT Format!



Rule Overview (version 1.0)
During the Experimental testing period, all events using this format will be unranked.


Bans:
Layers
  • All Super King/Sparking System Layers (Takara Tomy), except: Glide, Curse, Super, King, Variant, Death, Abyss, First
  • All Dynamite System Layers (Takara Tomy)

Forge Discs
  • All Super King/Sparking, and Dynamite Battle System Forge Discs (Takara Tomy)

Chassis
  • All Super King/Sparking System Double Chassis



Experimental Period Notes

  1. Length: An initial experimental format period of at least 5 events across at least 3 months is planned.  
  2. Region Requirements: The experimental events must be in at least 3 different regions (50 miles/80 Kilometers as suggested by Organizer’s Guide) for the format to be considered for ranked status.  
  3. Evaluation Method: After the initial minimum of 5 events across the minimum of 3 months, the format will be formally evaluated and discussed by the Organized Play team to see if another block of 5 events/3 months experimental period is necessary for additional format evaluation.  Event results and community feedback will be reviewed. An announcement will be made shortly after the end of each experimental period to inform the community of the our progress.
  4. For Organizers: When hosting a Burst GT format event during experimental period the event title must include the mention of “Burst GT Format.” Organizers should propose Burst GT Format events by choosing the "Burst" format, clearly designate in the event description that it is a Burst GT format event, and link to the interim rulebook. The template below can be used for this:

The following have been added to the PLA/HMS
rulebook:

Storm Grip Base (Dragoon S)
  • You may invert the rubber tip from Dragoon S Storm Grip Base in order to use the circular flat rubber base as the tip.
This change was primarily made to provide additional accessibility to Rubber Flats besides Defense Grip Base (inverted) and the very expensive and very fragile SG Grip Change Base.


Hello World Bladers!

Today we’d like to announce the re-launch of our Help Documents!


A link to these documents has been added under “More” in the main menu as well as in a “Need Help?” box on the index of the website.

What are the Help Documents?
The Help Documents are a resource that compiles documents answering frequently asked questions about the WBO.

The Help Documents are currently divided into 9 distinct sections:

  1. Playing in Beyblade Tournaments
  2. Organizing Beyblade Tournaments
  3. Beyblade Hobby
  4. Community
  5. Site Features
  6. User Maintenance
  7. Posting
  8. Organization
  9. Policies

You can consider the version we are launching today as “Help Documents v2.0”. This page previously existed on worldbeyblade.org years ago, but was hidden when we underwent our complete re-design a while ago. The original version slowly became out of date and we didn’t take the time to re-write everything until now.

Why did we do this?
Over the years, the amount of systems, features, and guidelines within the WBO has grown. While we have comprehensive rules and resources for tournaments, we did not have an up-to-date source of truth for new and veteran users alike to reference for basic questions about things like website functionality, our organization, or our policies for more specific things related to Beyblade tournaments on both the player and organizer side.

We understand that we need to do a better job of documenting things and presenting them to the community. Right now the website doesn't do a good job of guiding newcomers or giving people a central place to go to find answers. A lot of the information people need is out there, but it hasn't been structured or collected in the most strategic way until now.

This project is but one small cog in the wheel that will lead towards us being able to achieve a more welcoming, strategic, driven framework for the WBO. One that is aimed at helping people to "Play Beyblade, Together".

In the future we will be looking at other areas of our documentation as well as the design of our website that can be improved, so please stay tuned.

Want a question answered? Suggest it below.
We’ve dubbed this version of the Help Documents as “v2.0” because it simply represents the second version. It’s not ‘complete’. It should be considered a living document.

We will continue to add to it over time, but would also like to ask that if anyone in the community feels there is a question we haven’t addressed that would be worth answering in these documents to please let us know below!


Hey World Bladers! Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to some WBO Organized Play rulebooks, the Organizers' Guide, and Judge's Guide.

View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:



Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT All Rulebooks: Beyblade Selection Phase – Receiving Help Policy Updates
  • All Rulebooks: Player Incident Reporting
  • Organizer’s Guide: Tournament Types – 3on3 and P3C1 Types updated for Ranked
  • Judge’s Guide: Beyblade Selection - Bladers Receiving Help and Time Extensions



All Rulebooks Updates
IMPORTANT Beyblade Selection Phase – Receiving Help Policy Updates
During the Beyblade Selection phase, players were previously required to announce when they themselves were receiving help (in the form of both parts or advice) from someone else, no matter when that occurred. The way the rule was worded potentially allowed for a more experienced players to exploit some loopholes thus giving them an unfair advantage.

Starting today, this requirement no longer exists. Now, a blader may ask their opponent if they are receiving or have received help from others at the stadium itself during this phase. If asked, you are required to announce who has helped or is helping you during the Beyblade Selection Phase.

Once informed, your opponent may request a time extension to the Beyblade Selection Phase. All time extensions are at the discretion of the Judge.

A few other minor clarifications related to the implementation of multiple Beyblade formats (P3C1, 3on3) and the precise start point of a match were also included in this update.

Old Ruling:

New Ruling:
All Rulebooks – Beyblade Selection Wrote:Once across from each other at the BeyStadium, the match begins and each blader is to turn their backs and select their Beyblade(s) in secret within 3 minutes. The amount of Beyblades to be selected depends on the Tournament Type in use.

Bladers may receive help (coaching, gameplay advice, or equipment) during this phase. At any time, players may ask their opponent if they are receiving or have received help from others while at the stadium. If asked, the questioned player must identify to their opponent who helped or is helping them at the stadium. Once informed, the blader who initiated the inquiry may request a time extension to the Beyblade Selection phase.

Once a blader selects their Beyblade(s), they must announce that they are “set” and present their launcher and Beyblade to the judge for inspection. This ends the Beyblade Selection Phase and bladers are no longer allowed to receive help from anyone.

Beyblades should preferably be unassembled for inspection, or the judge will do it themselves.

Once a blader is set, they may not change their Beyblade(s) or launcher(s) for the duration of the match.  Bladers must clearly announce the spin direction of their Beyblade(s) to their opponent and the judge.  Beyblades must be launched in the direction that is fully compatible with the launcher being used.  Once both bladers are set, the match begins.

During Beyblade selection, bladers are forbidden from:

  1. getting up and/or leaving the BeyStadium
  2. turning around before both bladers are set
  3. attempting to spy on or gain information about the opposing blader’s selection or any advice being given to them.
  4. attempting to switch their equipment after announcing they are set

During Beyblade selection, people offering help to a player are forbidden from:


  1. attempting to spy on or gain information about the opposing blader’s selection or any advice being given to them.

Click below to read the guidelines in the Burst Format rulebook. These guidelines have also been added into the Beyblade Selection of each rulebook.



Player Incident Reporting 
The current process for disputing decisions/reporting incidents requires documenting the incident “to the best of your ability” and emailing the details to events@worldbeyblade.org. In an effort to provide greater clarity and more specific guidelines, we have decided to create a more formal incident reporting process. Going forward all reporting will be done via a google form which will contain clear guidelines, specific questions and other information regarding the process.

Click below to see the form. This form has been added to the Rules and Resources folder for player use and linked to in the sections of each format rulebook titled "If you disagree with a judge's decision..."







Organizer’s Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Organizers-Guide.png]

P3C1 and 3on3 Ranked
You spoke and we listened! Over the past several years, the WBO community has come to value new formats and play styles. Many of you have hosted unranked 3on3 and P3C1 formats and it’s thanks to your hard work that we can make the following announcement:

Beginning January 1st 2022, Pick 3 Choose 1 and 3-on-3 will officially become ranked formats. This means that approval for ranked tournaments in these formats will no longer need to be granted on a case-by-case basis. This is the first time that the WBO has ever offered multiple match formats and we’re excited for what this HUGE change means for our communities around the world. We look forward to hearing your feedback as we roll this update out in the new year. More information about these formats can be found below or in the Organizer's Guide.

Read P3C1 and 3on3 rules here.




Judge's Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Judges-Guide.png]

Beyblade Selection - Bladers Receiving Help and Time Extensions
Under "Beyblade Selection" in the Judge's Guide we've updated the "Borrowing Parts or Receiving Help" policy. Players are no longer required to announce to the opponent whether they are receiving help or not unless specifically asked by their opponent in which case they must answer truthfully. Judges may now grant/deny time extensions during Beyblade Selection based on their own discretion.

Read the full policy here.

If you have any feedback on these particular changes, or any questions or suggestions for further adjustments or additions, please post your thoughts below or in the WBO Organized Play Rules thread.

Hey World Bladers! Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to our Organized Play rulebooks and Guides. We have also added two new WBO Staff members!

View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:



Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT All Rulebooks: Battle Limit & Consecutive Draws (First Stage)
  • Burst Classic: Most Hasbro Turbo Exclusives & Xt+ Now Legal
  • Burst Limited: Turbo Achilles A4 & Kerbeus K4 Now Legal
  • Organizer’s Guide: Tournament Types – 3on3 Type for Unranked Added
  • Organizer's Guide: Posting Multiple Events Simultaneously Policy
  • Organizer's Guide: Organizers Participating as Players Policy Clarification
  • Judge's Guide: Judges Participating as Players Policy Clarification
  • Staff Additions: henwooja1 & froztz Have Joined WBO Staff
10.29.21 Update:
  • Driver variants with the same name are now considered the same part in deck format (ie only one may be used per deck)
  • Almight Now Banned in Classic


All Rulebooks Updates
IMPORTANT Battle Limit & Consecutive Draws (First Stage)
We know how frustrating it can be when battles are drawn out to 30 minutes (or longer) because of consecutive draws. That is why effective immediately, we will be implementing a limit of 10 battles per match along with guidelines for consecutive draws on all first stage matches in order to ensure the timely completion of all first stage matches.

Click below to read the guidelines in the Burst Format rulebook. These guidelines have also been added into the Gameplay Appendix of each rulebook.




Burst Classic Format Updates
Most Hasbro Turbo Exclusives & Xt+ Now Legal
Ever since Burst Classic was announced, we’ve seen tremendous support for the introduction of Hasbro Turbo exclusives to the format. As single and dual layer releases have become increasingly difficult (and expensive!) to obtain, we have made the decision to allow ALL Hasbro turbo exclusives in Burst Classic with the exception of Morrigna and Typhon. We hope this move will open the door for greater accessibility and encourage further testing in Burst Classic format.

But there’s more! We are also excited to share that we will be unbanning Xt+. While we do not believe that Xt+ poses a threat to Classic format, we plan to closely evaluate this move over the coming months to ensure that it does not negatively impact part diversity.

To clarify, the following parts will be legal, effective immediately:

Newly Unbanned Parts for Burst Classic Format Wrote:Legal
Ogre
Rudr
Sphinx
Balar
Cyclops
Dullahan
Gargoyle
Kraken
Xtend+




Burst Limited Format Updates
Turbo Achilles A4 & Kerbeus K4 Now Legal
You asked and we listened! Based on user testing, we have decided to allow Turbo Achilles A4 and Kerbeus K4 to be used in Burst Limited format going forward. To view our complete list of what is and is not considered legal in Burst Limited, please view the Burst Limited rulebook.

Newly Unbanned Parts for Burst Limited Format Wrote:Legal
Turbo Achilles A4
Kerbeus K4




Organizer’s Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Organizers-Guide.png]
Posting Multiple Events Simultaneously Policy
Under the "Planning Your Tournament" section of the Organizer's Guide we have added in a "Posting Multiple Events Simultaneously" section in order to permit Organizers who have a proven track record of successful completion of post-tournament responsibilities over their past three events the option to post up to two events simultaneously on the website.

We understand that some Organizers like to host multiple events on one day or want greater flexibility in planning multiple upcoming events in their community. The aim of this update is to formalize the ability for Organizers to do this if they can demonstrate that they are trustworthy and that we will not have to worry about their past events creating any blocks in our event processing queue due to their failure to complete their post-tournament responsibilities.

Any Organizer who wants to post more than two events simultaneously (ex. For a multi-event series or at a multi-day convention) will still require special approval. We are considering the implementation of a formalized process for this as well, but it is not ready at this time.

Read the full policy here.

Tournament Types – 3on3 Type for Unranked Added
Over the past several months we’ve seen an upswing in demand for our WBBA-inspired 3on3 battle format. We’re thrilled to announce that starting today, 3on3 is an official unranked WBO Tournament Type that will no longer require unique approval.

Read 3on3 Type rules here.

Organizers Participating as Players Policy Clarification
In the "Running Your Tournament" section of the Organizer's Guide we have added in a new policy clarification regarding any Organizers who choose to play in their own tournaments. The purpose of the addition is to clarify that Organizers are indeed permitted to participate and that while they are playing in their own matches, they are to be treated solely as players for anything directly related to their match; they are not responsible for enforcing rulings in these specific scenarios, judges are.

Read the full policy here.




Judge's Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Judges-Guide.png]
Judges Participating as Players Policy Clarification
Under "Judging Guidelines" in the Judge's Guide we've added a "Playing in a Tournament You Are Judging" section worded similarly to the above policy clarification for Organizers playing in their own tournaments.

Read the full policy here.




Staff Additions
henwooja1 & froztz Have Joined WBO Staff
We are thrilled to announce that henwooja1 and froztz will be joining our WBO Staff team. They have demonstrated immense knowledge of the Beyblade metagame, commitment to the community, and will be focusing their efforts as WBO Staff members on issues related to Organized Play.




Feedback?
If you have any feedback on these particular changes, or any questions or suggestions for further adjustments or additions, please post your thoughts below or in the WBO Organized Play Rules thread.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support of WBO Organized Play! We appreciate any and all feedback and are always looking to improve and clarify things where possible.
The Organized Play team is currently working hard and promoting unranked test events in search of solution(s) for the excessively long and consecutive draws laden matches. We have internally set a deadline to have solution(s) online by Nov 30, 2021.  A multitude of options are being discussed and explored.  We are also closely following the related discussions in the forums and on Discord.  We want to get this right and we appreciate your patience.

  • Bit Booster DRIVER[Image: faceboosterdriver.png]
  • Bit Booster GARNET [Image: Bit-Booster-Garnet.png]
  • Bit Booster AZURITE [Image: Bit-Booster-Azurite.png]

Contest Rules


  • Limit one entry per person! Your first entry will be the only one that's considered and you cannot edit your post, so work hard on it!
  • Design must be based on an existing Beyblade Burst top that has only a single evolution, something like Evil-eye for example has two evolutions and would not qualify, also must not have a Hasbro evolution, such as Inferno Salamander.
  • WBO Staff are not eligible.
  • You have until 11:59:59 PM EST Friday, October 15th, 2021 to submit your design. Any entries after that will be disqualified!
  • Post your entries in this thread! (You can also talk about the contest, ideas, or whatever in this thread as well!) However, you cannot post drafts of your entry and ask for feedback!
Here are some of the criteria your entry will be graded on:
  • Artistry: Obviously, someone who hand draws their Beyblade for several hours is going to be taken more seriously than someone who quickly puts something together in MS Paint. That being said, we understand that not everyone has the same artistic ability. Effort is what's important!
  • Originality: Try to think outside of the box and use ideas that haven't been used in Beyblade yet!
  • Balance: Remember guys: there's no best Beyblade! If you make a Beyblade that's so broken it would theoretically ruin the metagame and be banned even by TAKARA-TOMY, try to think of something else! Don't draw a Beyblade that's only junk, but try to balance everything with good and bad traits!

Good luck everyone!

Burst Limited Updates

IMPORTANT: Burst Limited goes Ranked starting August 2nd, 2021!

Thirteen months ago, we annnounced Burst Limited as a up-and-coming format for Burst, featuring a ruleset and banlist that focused on two main points: creating an environment for some older God and Cho-Z era parts to thrive, and one that would also be balanced well enough for Hasbro parts to also be competitively viable as well.

After thirteen months of events, testing and format updates, today, we are excited to announce that Burst Limited will become a fully-fledged ranked format starting Monday 2nd August!


Thank you everyone who has participated in unranked Burst Limited tournaments, those who have tested parts and combos in the format, and the overall enthusiasm the community has shown for Burst Limited. While various ongoings in the world have not made development of this format easy, we appreciate everyone's efforts to develop this format despite the circumstances.

But this isn't the end to development of this format either! As a limited format, we plan to routinely update this format to keep battles feeling new and fresh, while still keeping it the same format you've come to know and love. As such, we look forward to growing this format with you all as well with the many exciting battles to come.

Knockouts in Deck Format Finals now worth 2 points

As our first major change to Burst Limited, we've made the decision to increase the points a Knockout (KO) awards in Deck Format Finals to 2 points. The rulebook has been updated accordingly:

Burst Limited Format Rules - Deck Format Wrote:Scoring
  • Matches are to 5 points.
  • Out-spins: 1 point
  • Burst and KO: 2 points.
  • Non-contact knock-out or burst: 1 point
    • If a Beyblade exits the stadium or bursts without making contact with the opposing Beyblade they’ll receive 1 point.
  • Frame, God Chip, or Driver Chip falling off: 1 point.

While this change may have come out of the blue for some, we have made this decision based on two main factors;
  • The prevalence of Dash Drivers and Opposite Spin combinations.
  • The level of skill required to score a knock-out, particularly with the current metagame in this format.
Please note that this only affects Deck Format Finals, and knockouts will continue to award 1 point in preliminary rounds.



Burst Classic Updates

Ban List Update - Shot Driver is now Banned

In line with our existing ruling on Drivers with integrated Disks within this format, we have taken the decision to ban the Shot Driver from Burst Classic. The rulebook has been updated accordingly:

Burst Classic Format Rules - Banned Parts Wrote:Performance Tips/Drivers
  • ...
  • Metal Accel, Metal Fusion, Metal Defense
  • Hybrid, Ignition’, Generate, Shot
  • All HyperSphere Drivers

While we prefer not to restrict parts shortly after their release, given the nature of this Driver, we determined to be the best choice of action to not upset the metagame. However, as with all restrictions, we welcome the community to contribute to testing on this part within our Burst Classic Customizations subforum should anyone feel that this decision should be overturned.

Rulebook Clarification on Disk Legality

Traditionally, we have routinely updated the Burst Classic rulebook to immediately restrict Disks from new systems. However, this has become confusing and tedious for not only players, but for us as well.

Within Classic, we have been clear from the start that the original lineup of 25 Disks available during the Single and Dual Layer eras are intended to be the only usable Disks within the format, with newly released Drivers being the main variable to mix up the metagame.

As such, we have simplified the listing in our rulebook to specify the Disks that are permitted, rather than add clauses for those that aren't. Please see the rewritten ruling below:

Burst Classic Format Rules - Legal Parts Wrote:Forge Discs
  • Aero, Armed, Boost, Bumper, Central, Down, Force, Gravity, Heavy, Infinity, Jerk, Knuckle, Limited, Magnum, Nine, Oval, Polish, Quarter, Ring, Spread, Triple, Upper, Vertical, Wing, and Yell.

We hope this change provides clarity within this area and reduces the number of assumptions or guesses that take place when we haven't updated our clauses on time.




All Burst Format Updates

Rulebook clarification on "Gear" Attachments

Following some enquiries regarding the recent "Gear" attachments introduced during the Dynamite Battle System, we would like to clarify that these Gears may not be removed between battles in a match. Please see the clarified ruling below:

All Burst Format Rules - Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings Wrote:Part Attachments (e.g. Xtend+ Chip, +X, +Z, DB Gears)
  • Cannot be removed from a Beyblade for the duration of a match once it has been submitted to the judge for inspection.
  • If an attachment comes off during battle, the opponent is awarded 1 point.

This rule is in-line with our previous rulings on Layer Attachments, Frames and Driver Chips. Our intention has always been that these attachments create a composition that cannot be changed between rounds, so if you choose to use compositions such as Dynamite+F, Nexus+S or Venture+V, you are doing so knowing that these attachments may not be removed.

Rulebook clarification on "Limit Break" Disk Usage

We have also received a number of enquiries regarding Limit Break System Rings and their compatibility with Drivers with integrated Disks, such as Shot. We would like to clarify that, while these may fit together in certain circumstances, these are not intended for use with these Rings, and we have updated our ruling on usable Limit Break System Disks to take this into account. Please see the updated ruling below:

All Burst Format Rules - Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings Wrote:Limit Break Layers
  • Limit Break System Rings (Burn, Volcano, and The End) may only be used with Limit Break System Disks (Cho, Ou, and Kou).
  • Drivers with integrated Disks may not be used in combination with these Rings.

This rule is in-line with both our existing ruling covering Disk usage on these Rings, and the intended usage for these Rings based on Takara-Tomy and wbba guidelines.




Organizer's Guide Updates

IMPORTANT: Distance Restrictions added for events with conflicting dates

With WBO Organized Play events throughout the world ramping up once again, we would like to take the opportunity to clarify what has been a somewhat ambiguous guideline from us at times: the distance restriction between two events.

This restriction was added several years ago as a way to enforce respect within communities, and not let two events from different hosts essentially sabotage each other by being too close. Our existing restriction did not place a specific distance on this, and was instead assessed on a case-by-case basis from us, and sometimes permitted with consent between the two Organizers in question.

Today, we are clarifying this restriction to state that events from different Organizers may not be within 50 miles/80 kilometres of each other if they are to take place on the same day. The clause that permits this to be overruled if both Organizers agree remains in place. Please see the updated ruling below:

Organizer\s Guide - Planning Your Tournament Wrote:Date Conflicts
Organizers may not host an event within the same week as another Organizer within a 50 mile/80 Kilometer radius that is already hosting an approved event without their written approval in the event proposal for their secondary event.

We hope this provides some clarity on how we assess the distance between events, and allows Organizers to better plan their events should they host on the same weekend.




Feedback?

If you have any feedback on these particular changes, or any questions or suggestions for further adjustments or additions, please post your thoughts below or in the WBO Organized Play Rules thread.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support of WBO Organized Play! We appreciate any and all feedback and are always looking to improve and clarify things where possible.
If you try to take the WBO Organizer’s Quiz today, you might notice a few changes. We’re thrilled to announce that we have officially completed a long overdue overhaul of the Organizer’s Quiz. From now on, the quiz will be multiple choice and part of a two-step Organizer application process. This means that there will be less time-consuming back-and-forth on responses, and you will not be required to explain your answer.

This does not mean that the Organizer’s Quiz will be any less meaningful or easier to pass than it was before. Going forward, prospective Organizers will be required to score 100% on our 10-question quiz in order to move on to the second stage in our new two-step onboarding process. Similarly, in order to encourage applicants to take the quiz only when they're ready, quizzes may only be submitted once every 30 days, so be sure to read up on the Organizer’s Guide and other official WBO documentation before submitting your first quiz!

What is the second step in the new organizer onboarding process?

Over time, we’ve observed that our Organizer’s Quiz is great at assessing the technical knowledge of candidates, but not always the ability to think critically both under pressure and on-the-fly, which has become increasingly important over the years. We feel that being a WBO Organizer is a big responsibility and not something to be taken lightly. Our Organizers represent us around the globe, and should be prepared to not only be a role-model to prospective Bladers, but also be equipped to think quickly to address any complications that could arise at their events.

As such, in order to help us learn more about our candidates - their knowledge, personalities and ability to react to unconventional scenarios - we’ve now added an interview component to the Organizer’s Quiz process. This takes the form of a 10-15 minute interview, in which the Organized Play team will talk to you to both learn more about you, but also quiz you on some quick-fire scenarios to hear your approach to various issues that could arise at your events. WBO Organized Play staff will be notified when users pass the Organizer’s Quiz, and will reach out to applicants within 1 week of their quiz submission to schedule this brief interview over Discord. Discord is our primary mode of communication between Organizers and Staff, and we highly encourage all prospective Organizers to make an account, even if it’s for the temporary purpose of onboarding.

No Discord? No worries! We understand that there may be other factors preventing a hopeful organizer from creating an account, and are willing to make accommodations, such as conducting the interview on an alternative platform (Google Hangouts), if need be.

Finally, we want to take a moment to acknowledge the substantial changes to event organization and tournament rulings that have taken place in recent years. In light of these updates, Organizers who have not hosted a tournament in over two years will be required to reapply for Organizer status by taking the new Organizer’s Quiz. Previous Organizers will not be required to schedule an interview with WBO staff to retain their Organizer status, even if they haven’t hosted in over two years.

As part of our push to make tournament organization easier than ever before, we’ll  also be releasing in-depth video guides for our new organizers to aid in the process and help answer potential questions along the way. The first of these videos will be available soon on our YouTube channel, and we are excited to announce that three more will be posted later this month. We’re thrilled to share these updates with you, and we believe that they will make the organizer on-boarding process better for everyone. As always we look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback as we transition to this new process.
While most of our updates are around exciting changes or upcoming events, today's update is about a more serious topic: how we treat each other within our community, and how we respond to users that discriminate against others.

We recently issued a suspension to user marutti for a repeated history of posting derogatory messages targeted towards those living in Korea or of Korean descent.

Weighing the severity of these comments (which we won't repeat here), we've ultimately decided to suspend marutti from the World Beyblade Organization website and Discord server temporarily.

We typically don't comment on decisions like this publicly, but we see sharing this information as being in the best interests of the community because:

1. Several members have asked why marutti was suspended, and we want to provide a clear answer.
2. We want to remind the community of the WBO's guidelines around hate speech and discriminatory language.
3. We want to be transparent about what we've learned from this situation, and the changes we'll make based on it.



Our community guidelines
We want to take this opportunity to reiterate the World Beyblade Organizations Community Rules, which exist to keep the Beyblade community a welcoming place for everyone.

Listed within is a specific rule around discriminatory and abusive language:

Quote:8. Hate speech and group slurs - Discrimination, abuse, threats or prejudice against a particular group, for example based on race, gender, religion or sexual orientation, in a way that a reasonable person would find offensive.

We want to make it clear: there is no place in the World Beyblade Organization for racism or discriminatory behavior of any kind.

If you see content like this anywhere within the World Beyblade Organization -- in a post on worldbeyblade.org, from another member in a private message, or in our Discord server -- please report it immediately.

We've updated our Community Rules with clear instructions on how to report any issues, which you can read below. (A slightly different version specific to Discord can be found in the #rules channel there.)

Community Rules Update (Click to View)


About our response

The pattern of discriminatory comments from marutti was brought to our attention on May 17, 2021, although the comments themselves happened at various points in the past. While we'd previously noticed some of marutti's comments and asked him to stop, the scale of the issue wasn't totally clear until it was highlighted to us by a member of the community.

We also often rely on auto-moderation tools to highlight offensive language, but because marutti's posts didn't necessarily include slurs or other obviously derogatory comments, they were never picked up by our flagging tools.

Finally, we realized there is some ambiguity in our moderation guidelines around how suspensions and bans are applied across the worldbeyblade.org platform and our Discord server. Longtime members might know that the Discord server is still a very new thing for us, and we're definitely still learning as we go. We'll be updating our internal moderation guidelines to ensure our moderators feel confident and empowered to take action in the moment.

We've taken some time to make a statement about this, and we apologize for any confusion that it may have caused. The truth is we wanted to ensure that we took the time to respond appropriately and take steps to ensure similar situations aren't repeated in the future.

Going forward, we will be implementing extra measures to ensure that any questionable content such as this is addressed and resolved by the team sooner rather than later and in a way that not only we're satisfied with, but the community as a whole can be satisfied with as well.



Thanks everyone for your understanding in this matter. If anyone has any questions, comments or concerns regarding this matter, please contact a member of the Staff team for further support.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the Community Rules or how they are enforced in general, please feel free to post in the Discuss worldbeyblade.org forum.

Hello World Bladers!

A quick announcement for you today: we have now introduced a brand new forum called “Beyblade Products”!


What is this forum for?
As the name suggests, this forum will exclusively contain threads related to specific Beyblade products. In this forum, you can discuss all past, current, and upcoming official Beyblade releases.

New threads in this forum must be approved by our moderation team. Before you attempt to post a thread, be sure read the forum rules.

Why did we create this forum?
Previously, Beyblade product threads existed in the Beyblade General forum with “Product” prefix.

This prefix helped to make the threads stand out and also enabled users to filter the forum by them specifically.

However, the filtering functionality was a bit obscure and it's unlikely that many of you used it. We also believe that the discussion surrounding products is important enough to warrant an easier method of browsing, which is why we decided to create the Beyblade Products forum.

We also have plans to improve the visibility and standardization of product threads in the future, and this is the first step towards creating a structure that will allow us to do that.
