Outlined below are several important new updates to the WBO Organized Play Organizer’s Guide. All Organizers are required to be familiar with these updates.



Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT All Events Temporarily Free-To-Enter
  • IMPORTANT Prize Reimbursement Temporarily Suspended
  • IMPORTANT Blader Passport Subscriptions Temporarily Suspended
  • Updated, Relaxed Requirements for Unranked Events Spreadsheets
  • Introducing the WBO Challonge Community

  • Discontinuation of Blader Rewards/Credits Campaign
  • Sections Added for Inviting Players & Pre-Processing Events
  • BeyDays 2019 Delay and Consolidation with Beyblade Remembrance

IMPORTANT All Events Temporarily Free-To-Enter, Prize Reimbursement Temporarily Suspended & Blader Passport Subscriptions Temporarily Suspended

Until further notice:

  • All WBO Organized Play events will be free-to-enter. (This does not include convention/venue-related entry fees, if applicable)
  • Prize reimbursement will be temporarily suspended.
  • Blader Passports will not be available for purchase.

Currently active Blader Passports will be extended accordingly once this period has ended based on the number of days since this announcement (for example, if it lasts for 30 days and you have a Blader Passport, the original end date for your Blader Passport will be extended by 30 days).

The reason for this is two-fold: there are some new requirements by our payment processing system PayPal that we are working to meet, and we have also been considering a restructuring of how we manage event fees, including removing the Passport Bit entirely in an effort to streamline our work load. But we will need to evaluate other alternatives for tracking the start/end date of Blader Passports in order to do that.

Currently, users who subscribe to a Blader Passport online are automatically added to the “Passport” usergroup which indicates they have a Blader Passport, but does not show when the start date was.  The Passport Bit displays the start date, but needs to be manually awarded by a Committee Member … which is highly inefficient.

When the WBO first started this was not much of an issue due to the low volume of events and players, but over the years this has steadily required a greater and greater investment of time and it would seem that now is a good time for us to find a better way because as a volunteer organization, our time individually is limited and would be better spent on more valuable things for the WBO.

In the meantime, enjoy the free events. Smile



Updated, Relaxed Requirements for Unranked Events Spreadsheets
The results spreadsheets for unranked WBO Organized Play events now do not need to include a full recording of the match results if you post a link to your Challonge bracket in the tournament thread along with the link to your otherwise complete spreadsheet. This applies to Club Format events run using Round Robin Deck Format as well.

If you are running Club Format using the Winning Streak Format, you do not need to include the results themselves at all in your spreadsheet or otherwise (as that format cannot be performed using Challonge).

We realize that we ask a lot of our Organizers. We do so in order to maintain a standard level of quality and consistency across all of our events worldwide, but we also realize that over the years maybe  too much bureaucracy has accumulated, so we’re happy to start by relaxing the requirements for unranked events where ultimately, including results in the spreadsheet does not matter because they don’t need to be copy/pasted for processing in to the rankings.

We hope that this will make it a bit easier for you guys to host unranked events like those using the ongoing experimental Burst Classic Format!



Introducing the WBO Challonge Community
We are happy to announce that we have now created a new official World Beyblade Organization Challonge “Community” page!

New Organizer Requirements:
1. All WBO Organizers are required to post their Challonge username here.
2. All future WBO events hosted through Challonge must be hosted through this page.

[Image: cOiN31i.png]


Organizers, once you have provided your Challonge username, we will invite you as a “Collaborator”. From that point onward, whenever hosting an official WBO Organized Play event, all of your Challonge tournament brackets must be created within the WBO Challonge Community.

Challonge Communities carry a wide variety of features useful for competitive communities, but we are implementing it into our process solely for the ability to capture all WBO Challonge event pages into one central repository.

Currently, all WBO Organizers create tournament brackets within their own personal Challonge accounts. By having Organizers create their tournament brackets within the WBO Challonge Community, it will be easier for us to track the results of events after they happen.

Communities on Challonge also allow you to integrate “Events”, which is useful for events which take place over several days such as BEYBLADE NORTH 2019.



Simplified Warning Guidelines for Failure to Submit Tournament Information
Some time ago we introduced new guidelines for warning Organizers who did not submit their tournament information on time. While well-intentioned, we’ve realized over time that the multi-stage approach was too complex for us to enforce as a volunteer organization. As such, we have decided to simplify them.

Effective now, WBO staff reserves the right to issue warnings to Organizers using their judgment based on the general Low-, Medium-, or High-Impact guidelines listed under “Organizer Violations” on our Community Rules.





Discontinuation of Blader Rewards/Credits Campaign
For reasons similar to the above issue with the Blader Passport, we have also decided to officially discontinue Blader Rewards. All outstanding Credits that have not been awarded will not be awarded.

Any users with existing Credits on their user profiles (under “Credits”) may exchange them for any of the remaining physical items or Bit Boosters on the list by July 1st, 2019 by PMing ~Mana~ and myself. On July 2nd, 2019, all Credits will become void. If there is any physical prizes on the Blader Rewards list remaining after this date, we will use them in a future giveaway.

We’ve also added in several of the newer and limited Bit Boosters–like Bit Booster GENERATIONS I–to the list of redeemable prizes, so take this chance to bolster your Bit collection!

This has been on the back-burner for a long time due to our focus on catching up with actually processing results into the rankings first and we’ve come to the realization that we simply do not have the time or manpower on staff currently to continue managing it.

Awarding Credits had to be done manually by staff, and also created more work for Organizers who had to calculate/record them in their spreadsheets for every tournament. Then, all prize requests had to be manually tracked and ordered …

While always challenging to manage, like the Blader Passport, it was easier to do so during the early years of the WBO when it was first introduced. We’ve grown so much since then that now seems like a good opportunity to re-evaluate how we can best and most efficiently offer prizing for WBO events and players.

Having to manage the ordering of prizes on an intermittent basis for things such as BeyDays or our anniversary is one thing, but having to manage this on an ongoing basis is beyond what we are capable or willing to commit to at this point. We ask for your kind understanding in this matter and thank everyone for helping to make Blader Rewards more successful than we ever imagined it would be.

We hope that with the discontinuation of this campaign, staff will have more time to focus on other areas of the community and the work load for Organizers will be lightened, if only a little bit.

To go along with this update we have also updated the WBO Results Spreadsheet template to no longer mention Credits. It can be found in our Rules & Resources folder or by clicking below.





Sections Added for Inviting Players & Pre-Processing Events
We’ve added in sections to the Organizer's Guide for the previously announced Player Invite and Pre-Processing features to ensure all new Organizers learn about them!:

Post-Tournament Responsibilities – Pre-Processing Tournament Results (Optional) Wrote:After you have completed your results spreadsheet, you can easily pre-process them on the page for your event so that the Organized Play Contributor team can more quickly input them into the rankings when it is time.

This is optional, but a huge help to WBO staff who manage the queue of events to be processed into the rankings. Learn How to Pre-Process Here.

Tournament Management – Tournament Invites Wrote:Once you have created your Event page, click the “Join Tournament” button to access the  "Invite Players" section. Type in up to 25 usernames at a time and instantly send invitation PMs and notifications to the chosen Bladers.



BeyDays 2019 Delay and Consolidation with Beyblade Remembrance
As many of you may know, around the end of May each year is when we hold our annual celebration of Beyblade called “BeyDays”. Regrettably, due to some of the issues described at the start of this post, we do not feel we would be able to do it justice this year in terms of offering the prizing BeyDays has become known for.

As a result, we’ve made the decision to delay BeyDays 2019 until later this summer. In addition, we will also be taking this opportunity to consolidate BeyDays and our yearly “Beyblade Remembrance” event (which typically happens in the summer) into one.

We feel that through this consolidation we’ll be able to focus our efforts a bit more and deliver a community event that everyone can be excited about! Please stay tuned for more.

Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to the WBO Organized Play Organizer’s Guide.

All Organizers are required to be familiar with these updates.

[Image: b7Gk3gr.png]



This expansive update is informed largely by our experience over the past year with large events such as Beytuber Brawl and BEYBLADE SHOGATSU 2019; the WBO Organized Play Beyblade community has reached new milestones in terms of tournament size exceeding 160 players in both of the aforementioned cases.

The Organizer’s Guide was originally written during a time when our events were much smaller, but larger events bring along with them a whole new set of concerns and responsibilities which Organizers need to be conscious of when organizing and preparing for their events.

The most major points relate to participant capping, venue capacity, updated Tournament System guidelines, sponsorship, and a wide variety of other guidelines which we hope will help Organizers plan for and manage their events better.

  • IMPORTANT Introduction of Single Elimination for Large Events: Permitted for 80–120, Mandatory for 121+ players. For Final Stage with 80–159 player Single Elimination, Double Elimination Deck Format may be used (Page 11)

Running Your Tournament
  • IMPORTANT Updated Challonge Guidelines Based on Tournament Systems Updates (Page 16-17)
  • Using Challonge’s New Stations Feature (Page 27)

Tournament Management
  • New Account Creation Guidelines & Printable Resource Added (Page 32-33)

Thank you so much to everyone who entered!
Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to the WBO Organized Play Burst Format rulebook. View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Burst Format: Parts With Multiple Modes – Initial Mode Selection Clarifications
  • Burst Format: Gatinko Layer Rulings
  • Burst Format: Deck Format – Drivers and SlingShock Counterparts Cannot Be Repeated



Burst Format Updates

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Parts With Multiple Modes – Initial Mode Selection Clarifications
When using a part with multiple modes which requires disassembly to change (such as Legend Spriggan), the mode cannot be changed after it is presented to the judge during the Beyblade Selection phase until the first round of the match has been played.

In the case of Layers such as Cho-Z Spriggan and Spriggan Requiem/Spryzen Requiem:

Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings – Spriggan Requiem/Spryzen Requiem Wrote:Players must select the mode of Spriggan Requiem or Spryzen Requiem during the Beyblade Selection phase before showing it to the judge for inspection. After submitting their combination for inspection, they may not change the mode for the duration of the match.

Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings – Cho-Z Spriggan Wrote:Players must select the mode of Cho-Z Spriggan during the Beyblade Selection phase before showing it to the judge for inspection. After submitting their combination for inspection, they may not change the mode for the duration of the match.


[Image: koohgf3.png]

Burst Format: Gatinko Layer Rulings
We have added in several clarifications to cover rulings related to the brand new Gatinko Layer System:

Swapping Gatinko Layer Components is Not Considered a “Mode Change”
Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings – Gatinko Layers Wrote:Gatinko Layer combinations are considered to be separate parts. Regular mode changing rules (see Gameplay Appendix) for Layers that require disassembly and have mode changes (like Alter Chronos or Legend Spriggan) do not apply to Gatinko Layers because the different configurations are considered as separate Layers and not “modes”. Therefore, you cannot switch your configuration of a Gatinko Layer during a first stage or final stage match.

Final Stage – Deck Format
Deck Building Wrote:If using Gatinko Layers, no components (Base, Weight, Gatinko Chip) may be repeated across different combinations.


Burst Format: Deck Format – Drivers and SlingShock Counterparts Cannot Be Repeated
We have clarified that including both the regular version of a Driver (whether it be Hasbro or TAKARA-TOMY) and the Hasbro Slingshock version is not permitted while constructing your Deck. They are considered to be the “same” part, and therefore cannot be repeated.

Beyblade/Part-Specific Rulings – SlingShock Drivers Wrote:All SlingShock Drivers (such as Eternal-S, Jolt-S, Accel-S) and their regular counterparts (such as Eternal, Jolt, and Accel) cannot both be included within your Deck during a Deck Format match at the same time. For example, if you have a combination with Eternal-S in your Deck, you cannot also use Eternal.



New Experimental Format: Burst Classic Testing Continues!
The experimental Burst Classic Format discussion has been ongoing over the past few months now and we’ve had a few test events since then trying it out.

The format is still very much in the experimental stage, so we encourage more Organizers to try it out for their events and for all members to provide their feedback and testing to help us perfect it!






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.

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT: Burst Format: Dead/Perfect/Imperfect/Revive Phoenix & Phoenix P4 Usage Clarifications



Burst Format Updates


[Image: t1Fliry.png]

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Dead/Perfect/Imperfect/Revive Phoenix & Phoenix P4 Usage Clarifications

First Stage
The Revive Phoenix/Dead Phoenix Layer Body and the Revive/Dead Armour are considered to be separate parts.

Regular mode changing rules (see Gameplay Appendix of Burst Format rulebook) for Layers that require disassembly and have mode changes (like Alter Chronos or Legend Spriggan) do not apply to rP, dP, pP, and iP because the different configurations are considered as separate Layers and not “modes”.

Therefore, you cannot switch your configuration of rP, dP, pP, or iP during a regular first stage match.

Final Stage (Deck Format)
The Revive Phoenix Layer Body and Dead Phoenix Layer Body and the Revive/Dead Armors cannot be repeated within decks or switched between rounds in the Final Stage.

Therefore, it is legal to include rP + dP OR pP + iP in your Deck, but not any other combination of configurations.

Note: “pP” refers to Perfect Phoenix (Revive Phoenix Layer Body + Dead Armor) and “iP” refers to “Imperfect Phoenix” (Dead Phoenix Layer Body + Revive Armor).


[Image: 1fY92NX.png]

Dead & Revive Armour Gameplay Rule Updates
We’ve updated the gameplay ruling description for Revive Armour to include Dead Armour and the various configurations of the Layer:

Dead Armour & Revive Armour Wrote:The Revive Phoenix “Revive Armour” or Dead Phoenix “Dead Armour”  (the outer ring of the Layer Body which can pop off mid-battle) must be used with one of the Layer Body pieces from either Beyblade. When the ring comes off during battle it is considered an active piece in the stadium as part of the Dead/Revive/Perfect/Imperfect Phoenix combination in use. This means any hits, KO, or Burst it inflicts on the opposing Beyblade are considered to be Dead/Revive/Perfect/Imperfect Phoenix’s. Players and judges should not try to pick up the Dead Armour or Revive Armour at all until the round has ended. The armour piece attached to the Layer Body the beginning of the battle must be reattached after each round it comes off.

Phoenix P4
Hasbro’s Phoenix P4 Energy Layer may not be mixed with pieces from TAKARA-TOMY’s Revive or Dead Phoenix and vice-versa for both with Phoenix P4.





New Experimental Format: Burst Classic Testing Continues!
First announced alongside our January 2019 Rule Updates, the experimental Burst Classic Format discussion has been ongoing over the past month and we’ve had a few test events since then trying it out.

The format is still very much in the experimental stage, so we encourage more Organizers to try it out for their events and for all members to provide their feedback and testing to help us perfect it!

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Hasbro’s Spryzen Requiem & Garuda G3 Layers Unbanned
Hasbro’s Spryzen Requiem and Garuda G3 Layers are now unbanned.

Please note: Spryzen Requiem’s mode (spin direction) cannot be changed between rounds within the same match.



[Image: Beyblade-Burst-Driver-Wear-Regulations-2.jpg]

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Driver Wear Regulations
To place ourselves in alignment with TAKARA-TOMY’s new Driver wear regulations, we have implemented them into our rulebook.

While we cannot show picture examples of every single Driver, these are the general guidelines:

Legal:
  • The Driver is brand new.
  • The of tip of the Driver is worn but still remains the primary point of contact with the stadium floor, including to the point of changes in performance.

Illegal:
  • The tip has been worn down to the point that other structural parts of the Driver become the primary point of contact (ex. If the rubber on Jolt wears down completely and is parallel with the plastic casing surrounding it) or if structural parts such as screws are exposed.
  • Tips which have obviously been damaged through use on surfaces other than a Beyblade stadium (ex. concrete).
  • Any other part of the Driver that has been intentionally worn down to affect shape or performance.

We will also be adding tip wear regulations for all other formats in the near future as well (regarding Bottoms, Running Cores, and Blade Bases from MFB, HMS, and Plastics respectively).



[Image: Beyblade-Burst-Product-Restrictions.jpg]

Burst Format: Legal Equipment – Product Restriction Updates
We have added in a new section under “Legal Equipment” to clarify the restrictions on some specific Beyblade Burst products:

Burst Format Rulebook – Legal Equipment – Product Restrictions Wrote:Product Restrictions: Beyblade Micros, Rip Fire Beyblades, Digital Control Beyblades, the Mugen and Mugen L Drivers, and any Beyblade sideline/promotional product that is not compatible with the mainline Beyblade Burst series of tops are illegal.




New Experimental Format: Burst Classic
Over the past few months, a number of us within the Organized Play team have been working on two new formats behind-the-scenes. Today, we're happy to share one of these Formats; a format dedicated to old Single & Dual Layer System parts which can no longer fit in the metagame, Burst Classic.

This format is now available for Organizers to host unranked experimental events for, in order to provide development feedback to help perfect the ruleset.






Organizer’s Guide Updates

IMPORTANT Organizer’s Guide: Judging a Match – Beyblade Inspection Process Clarifications
We have added some additional explicit requirements to the Beyblade inspection process for judges to ensure nothing is missed. Specifically, judges must now also:

  • Check wear on tip (Driver, Bottom, Running Core, or Blade Base depending on format) based on guidelines found in each format’s rulebook (guidelines for MFB, HMS, PLA coming soon).
  • Verify all parts are not broken or do not have any cracks.
  • Check all stickers are positioned legally.
  • Burst Format: Check that the Layer teeth have not been tampered with.
  • Burst Format: Test the strength/mobility of the Driver spring to ensure it hasn’t been tampered with.



Organizer’s Guide: Judging a Match – Launcher Rotation Inspection Requirement Updates
The requirements for when Launcher Rotation Inspection is required have been updated. Launcher rotations must now be inspected only for: the final stage of events with 60 or more participants.

We’ve also added in the legal number of launcher rotations for the:

  • Light Launcher/Light Launcher L + Phoenix Winder (7)
  • Long BeyLauncher/BeyLauncher L (7.5)
  • Long BeyLauncher LR (10).

And we’ve specified that the numbers found when testing must be within roughly .5 rotations of the official number in the Organizer’s Guide.



Organizer’s Guide: Swiss & Double Elimination – Optional Finalist Increase for Large Events
For both Swiss Format and Double Elimination, we have added an option to increase the number of finalists that you may bring to the Final Stage from 8 all the way up to 32 in extremely large events. The rules are now as follows:

  • 79 or Less Participants: Note the top 8 players.
  • 80+ Participants: Note the top 8 players, or optionally the top 16.
  • 160+ Participants: Note the top 8 players, or optionally the top 16 or top 32.

Before the tournament you must announce the number of players that will ultimately be advancing to the Final Stage. You may not change the number of declared finalists later on unless there is extenuating circumstances which would require you to finish the tournament as quickly as possible. If there is any such circumstances, you must obtain proof (such as a note from the venue manager) of this and submit it with your results afterwards.



Organizer’s Guide: How to Handle Fixing Incorrect Match Results
While we encourage all Organizers and judges to be careful in their reporting of matches at all times, sometimes mistakes happen. To that end, we have added in some additional clarifications talking about how to handle such situations to the Organizer’s Guide.

If at some point during a tournament it becomes recognized that an error was made:

1. Round Robin/Group Round Robin
View Round Robin Procedures (Click to View)

2. Swiss Format Errors
View Swiss Format Procedures (Click to View)

3. Double Elimination Errors
View Double Elimination Procedures (Click to View)




All Rulebooks Updates

All Rulebooks: Evidence Procedure Clarifications
We have added in some clarifications to the Organizer’s Guide outlining the procedure for acceptance of evidence in cases where players dispute a judge’s decision after an event has concluded:

Current Ruling:
All Rulebooks Wrote:If you disagree with a judge’s decision ...

You’re entitled to dispute the decision, but must accept the judge’s final call.

If you still disagree, document the incident to the best of your ability and email the details to events@worldbeyblade.org. We take all incident reports seriously.

New Additions:
All Rulebooks Wrote:If the dispute is related to a particular match result, it must be submitted before it is processed into the rankings.

If the evidence submitted is found to prove a particular result should have been reversed, the match will be voided entirely.

Match winners may only be reversed if it is proven that a judge colluded with someone to fix a particular result.

Hey there World Bladers!

Once again, we've reached the end of another massive year for Beyblade!

Takara-Tomy launched their Cho-Z Layer System, complete with metal elements, and have now begun their invincible Cho-Z Awakening System! Hasbro launched their Slingshock System, adopting a metalless approach to Cho-Z Layers for faster paced battles!

Across the WBO, activity and discussion is at a high, and we've also hosted a whopping 91 WBO sanctioned events across the world this year!

And, after another action-packed year of Beyblade; today, the World Beyblade Organization finally reaches it's 10th Anniversary! We've come a long way since our original press release posted on December 4th, 2008.

And to celebrate this milestone, we've prepared a number of festivities and announcements!

10th Anniversary Celebrations Overview
  • New Year, New Look: Major Theme Updates for WBO X!
  • 10th Anniversary BeyLotto: Win Fabulous Beyblade Burst Prizes!
  • The History of the WBO: 10th Anniversary Interview Series
  • Design Archives of the World Beyblade Organization: 2008 – 2011 (Part 1 of 4)
  • #WBOMemories Contest: Share your Favourite WBO Memories!
  • WBO X Championship 2019: Coming Soon!
  • Beyblade Remembrance 2018 BeyLotto & #BeybladeGenerations Contest Results
  • Entry Fees Waived for WBO Tournaments: January 1st, 2019 - February 3rd, 2019!



New Year, New Look: Major Theme Updates for WBO X!
First, as you may have noticed upon visiting the site, we launched our long-overdue theme rewrite today! As we mentioned back in our 9th Anniversary and BeyDays 2018, this long overdue reintroduces a plethora of features lost in the transition between our Legacy and Responsive themes in 2016, and also introduces some brand-new features as well:

  • Battle Histories on user profiles now allow you to rep your fantastic battle results
  • Tournament Match Listings are now visible on each individual processed event page
  • Tournament Invitations enable Organizers to directly invite Bladers in their community to their events without having to tag them
  • The final version of Organizer Processing, which has enabled Organizers to speed up our ranking processing by submitting their results!
  • And much more!

WBO X Championship 2019: Coming Soon!
With 2018-2019 being the WBO's 10th anniversary, we feel that ultimately the best way to celebrate this milestone is to do what we do best: host an awesome Beyblade tournament. Maybe our biggest and best yet.

Beyblade Remembrance 2018 BeyLotto & #BeybladeGenerations Contest Results
We're also finally announcing the results for our Remembrance 2018 contests! Sorry for the wait!







Entry Fees Waived for WBO Tournaments: January 1st, 2019 - February 3rd, 2019
As usual, let's not forget that we're waiving the fees for all WBO tournaments between January 1st, 2019 and February 3rd, 2019! Make the most of this time to host a few tournaments and bring new Bladers to each of our communities!








Thank you to all World Bladers for your love, dedication and commitment for Beyblade this year! Let's make the 10th Anniversary and the year following it the best yet!
Back in December 2016, we launched a complete WBO rebrand as part of our 8th Anniversary celebrations, which included a brand-new responsive theme across our entire site. But unfortunately, despite all the immense benefits the new design offered, many features were lost in the transition to this design.

As you can see already; today, we launched our much anticipated rewrite of our now-feature-complete Responsive theme, and have also deployed a number of brand-new features to improve your experience across the site!

In this thread, I'll be going over some of our brand-new features and what they mean for you and your communities, as well as touching on a few of our future plans as well.



Battle Histories

[Image: 9Mp7ZkJ.png]

Ever wanted to know exactly how you did in a tournament - the tournament, the result, how many points you gained - all at a glance? Meet our Battle Histories!

Battle Histories are your main point of interest for all of a Blader's tournament progress. By heading over to a Blader's user profile - for example, yours or mine! - you'll be able to see the results of Bladers within any processed tournaments that they've taken part in, alongside a breakdown of their running BeyRank scores and total wins and losses!

Please note that this feature will not appear on the profiles of Bladers who have not participated in any processed events! If you want to build up your Battle History portfolio on your profile, consider joining one of our Organized Play tournaments in your area!



Processed Tournament Pages – Full Match Listing

[Image: bG0IbPp.png]

[Image: WBO-Beyblade-Tournament-All-Matches-Modal-Window.jpg]

Included on event pages for tournaments which have been processed into our rankings (like this one) is a new section at the top called "Tournament Results". Clicking "View Matches" will pull up a window listing all of the matches for all users in that specific tournament.

This way, you now have the ability to not only view a specific set of matches for a specific user (Battle History described above), but the ability to view a specific set of matches for a specific tournament.




Tournament Invitations

[Image: WBO-Invitation-Button-Tournament.png]

Your tournament thread has been approved, the words "0 Bladers registered" staring into your soul, but there's no easy way to invite Bladers in your community to your tournament!

Well, this one will make Organizers everywhere rejoice! The ability to send Tournament Invitations to other users on site has now been added! Organizers can now click a new "Invite Participants" button located on their tournament thread to instantly send PMs and notifications to chosen Bladers about their event!

[Image: ouIx0YT.png]

However, as we've carefully mentioned above, this feature is currently only available to Organizers while we test the stress this has on our servers. Hopefully one day we'll be able to open up the criteria further but, for now, this feature should serve as a fantastic tool for Organizers to use to transform that 0 participant count into a 10, 20, or more quickly!
 


Organizer Processing

[Image: r3oHMg8.png]

We touched on this feature back during BeyDays 2018, and launched it at around the same time as well. So why are we mentioning it again?

Well, Organizer Processing was always designed with our theme rewrite in mind, and we're happy to report that as of today, we've reached our final version of this feature, with full support for the theme rewrite and all the bugs ironed out!

For those who aren't familiar with the feature, Organizer Processing has allowed tournament organizers to enter in the results for tournaments themselves using a specialist tool, and then save them for our Organized Play team to hit the button and process! With this process and new tool, what used to take ~30 minutes per tournament for the Committee to do now takes Organizers and the Organized Play team under a minute to do from start to finish! An incredible improvement!

[Image: I5XYN4N.png]

And of course, if you find yourself looking at an older tournament thread - perhaps having clicked the link for one in our new Battle Histories feature! - you're now able to see the winners for that event on the top of the thread! The Tournament Results option will also show you the results for all matches that took place within that tournament as well! Go check it out!



Tournament Thread Adjustments

We've been keeping a close eye on the layout of our tournament threads and looking closely into what we can do to streamline and simplify areas for both attendees and Organizers! Ready for an onslaught of quality of life changes for our tournament thread layout? Here we go!

[Image: WBO-Event-Pages-Admission-Notes-Feature.jpg]

The Admission Fee box now has a dedicated area for notes pertaining to the admission fee! This is particularly useful for those Organizers who host convention-based tournaments and require all participants to visit somewhere else to get a convention ticket, or for tournaments that take place within a shop and require admission fees to be paid at a specific desk. The possibilities are endless, so use this how you see fit!

We've also made it so the Admission Fee box no longer shows the "Passport admission fee" if both prices are the same. This was a confusing area for attendees of convention-based events specifically, where both prices were almost always the same and raised more questions than answers.

[Image: WBO-Event-Pages-Format-Boxes.png]

"Burst Format", "HMS Format", "Plastics Format, "Zero-G Format" - We get it, there's a lot of different Formats in Beyblade, and it's not always easy for everyone to tell if they Beyblades they're collecting are appropriate for a certain tournament. So we've added an image representation for these within this box, along with a button to direct you to the appropriate rulebook! We hope this clears up some of the confusion that can occur when planning what to take from your collection for a specific event!

[Image: WBO-Event-Pages-Need-to-Know-Information...t-Text.jpg]

With tournaments in the past year hitting an all-time high, it has become harder and harder for Organizers to inform each and every participant about guidelines and registration, so we've taken the liberty to add a "Need-to-Know Information" section! This will appear by default on every single tournament thread, so we hope that these fixed guidelines help our Organizers by making attendees aware of some common questions and concerns, and how to help speed up their registration experience!

[Image: WBO-Event-pages-Social-Media-Submissions...eature.jpg]

We've revamped our Social Media module and implemented a fancy new interactive module for submitting tournament footage to our Social Media team, as well as an alert to make all attendees aware of the WBO's Photography Policy and their rights to not be included in footage.



General Site Adjustments

[Image: WBO-Main-Menu-Tournaments-Dropdown.jpg]

We're not done yet! We've also made some key adjustments to our index and navigation bars to help get you to the information you want to see quicker! Some of our most important resources and locations were difficult to reach, so we've condensed them into handy drop-down menus in the navigation bar to ensure that they're always with you!

[Image: WBO-Site-Index-Upcoming-Tournaments-Box.jpg]

We've also heard you guys loud and clear, and have added a quick option to our Upcoming Tournaments list to jump straight to our main tournaments forum! In the Summer months when we have more tournaments than we can realistically advertise on the main page, you'll thank us!

[Image: WBO-Beyblade-Customizations-Forum-Header-Image.jpg]

In each of the main Beyblade Hobby-related forums, tournament forums, and Discuss worldbeyblade.org we've added featured images to the top right corner to help communicate what the forum is about and make the page just a little bit more visually interesting. Check out all of the forums to see the images in use! These may be changed or new ones may be added over time.

[Image: WBO-Individual-Forum-Rules-Beyblade-Customizations.jpg]

We've also re-enabled our Forum Rules dropdown within forums with applicable rules! You can find these at the top of a forum, and can be opened with the arrow on the right hand side! We'll be updating these very soon, so stay tuned for that!



So what's next?

What, you want even more?!

Currently, we aren't committing to any specific new features. That said, we're looking at continuing to improve the experience on site for all Bladers and Organizers. As a taster of what we would like to move forward with in the future;
  • Expanding Tournament Invitations to attendees.
  • The ability to send Tournament Invitations to potential participants based on actual locations.
  • For Organizers: Exporting Plain Text List of Participants for Events to help more easily construct Challonge participant lists
  • Further BeyRank system updates!



Thank you for all your patience with this upgrade over the past two years! It's safe to say that you're now using the latest and greatest version of the worldbeyblade.org site yet, and we hope that you enjoy using and browsing it as much as we've enjoyed making it!

Thank you so much to everyone who entered!
Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to the WBO Organized Play Burst Format rulebook and the Organizers' Guide. View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT: Burst Format: Effective December 8, 2018 – Ωuter Disk Unbanned
  • Burst Format: Dash Drivers & Regular Counterparts Cannot be Repeated in Deck Format
  • Burst Format: Cho-Z Spriggan Layer Spin Direction Switching Restrictions
  • Burst Format: Level Chip + Hasbro Turbo Layer Compatibility Clarification
  • Burst Format: Left αpollos, Right αrtemis, Left αeclipse, Right αeclipse Layer Clarifications
  • Burst Format: Launching - Permitted Distance from BeyStadium Clarification




Burst Format Updates


[Image: Beyblade-Burst-Outer-Disk.png]

IMPORTANT Effective December 8, 2018 – Ωuter Disk Unbanned
Effective December 8, 2018, the Ωuter Disk will now be legal for use in Burst Format.

With the recent release of the B-128 Beyblade Burst Cho-Z Customize Set, which includes the long-awaited re-release of the Ωuter Disk, we have decided that now is the time to finally unban it as it has become much more widely available than it’s original Ωrichalcum-exclusive release.




[Image: wbo-beyblade-burst-dash-and-regular-drivers.png]

Dash Drivers & Regular Counterparts Cannot be Repeated in Deck Format
Dash Drivers (such as Xtreme’, Destroy’, Zephyr’, Zeta’) and their regular counterparts (such as Xtreme, Destroy, Zephyr, and Zeta) cannot both be included within your Deck during a Deck Format match at the same time.

This means for instance that you cannot have both Winning Valkyrie 7 Dagger Xtreme’ and Bloody Longinus 5 Under Xtreme in your Deck. Xtreme’ and Xtreme are considered to be the “same” part. Therefore, one of the two would need to be replaced with a different Driver.




[Image: cho-z-spriggan-layer-beyblade-burst.png]

Cho-Z Spriggan Layer Spin Direction Switching Restrictions
As an exception to the rule regarding mode changing for parts which require disassembly (see Gameplay Appendix in the Burst Format rulebook), Cho-Z Spriggan's mode (spin direction) cannot be changed between rounds within the same match.

Combining Hasbro Turbo Energy Layers with TAKARA-TOMY Level Chips is Not Permitted
You may not use TAKARA-TOMY Level Chips with Hasbro Beyblade Burst Turbo Energy Layers.

The fit of Level Chips with Beyblade Burst Turbo Energy Layers is inconsistent and therefore it seems unclear whether compatibility was intentional or not. To stay on the safe side, we are ruling that they are not compatible with each other.

Left αpollos, Right αrtemis, Left αeclipse, Right αeclipse Layer Clarifications

First Stage: Left αpollos, Right αrtemis, Left αeclipse, Right αeclipse Are Considered Separate Parts
The Left αpollos, Right αrtemis, Left αeclipse, and Right αeclipse Layers released as part of the B-126 Cho-Z Muso BeyStadium Set are considered to be separate parts.

Like duo αpollos, duo αrtemis, and duo αeclipse, regular mode changing rules (see Gameplay Appendix in Burst Format rulebook) for Layers that require disassembly and have mode changes (like Alter Chronos or Legend Spriggan) do not apply to lα, rα, lαe, rae because the different configurations are considered as separate Layers and not “modes”. Therefore, you cannot switch your configuration of lα, rα, lαe, or rae during a regular first stage match.

Final Stage (Deck Format): Left αpollos & Right αrtemis Can Both Be Included, Left αeclipse & Right αeclipse Cannot be Repeated
In your Deck you may include both Left αpollos and Right αrtemis (one or both together) plus Left αeclipse OR Right αeclipse (you cannot include both) as all or part of the three Layers in your Deck Format combos. If you do not have multiple copies of these Layers, you are permitted to disassemble the Layers  as is necessary throughout the Deck Format battle in order to switch to the other Layer configurations.

Left αeclipse and Right αeclipse are comprised of one half of Right αrtemis and one half of Left αpollos combined with one of the two pieces inserted into the middle of the Layer to determine the spin direction.




Launching - Permitted Distance from BeyStadium Clarification
As was listed in the rulebooks for other formats already, we have added a clarification to the Burst Format rulebook stating that the permitted maximum distance Beyblades must be launched (from just above the stadium cover) is 30cm maximum from the stadium floor.

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Burst Format: First Stage - Burst Finishes Increased from 1 Point to 2 Points
  • Metal Fight Limited Format: Gravity’s Initial Spin Direction Selection in Deck Format Clarification



Burst Format Updates

[Image: gnJ23kG.png]

IMPORTANT Burst Format: First Stage - Burst Finishes Increased from 1 Point to 2 Points
Burst Format Rulebook Wrote:To win a match, a blader must score 3 points. You earn point(s) when:
  • The opposing Beyblade stops spinning (1 Point)
  • The opposing Beyblade exits the BeyStadium (1 Point)
  • The opposing Beyblade bursts (2 Points OR 1 Point if Frame or God Chip comes off)

There has been much debate in the community over the past couple months about the situation TAKARA-TOMY has presented us with through the release of Hell Salamander, Archer Hercules, and Revive Phoenix. Around the world, there’s differing opinions about each of these Layers. But ultimately, they do keep each other in check to a certain degree.

However, the problem that’s been identified is the low usage and effectiveness of Attack types especially after their release. It was particularly bad until the recent release of Xtreme’ with Shadow Amaterios, a much needed new version of Xtreme with a much tighter spring and softer rubber, allowing for a tighter lock and much better flower pattern when banking.

While Xtreme’ has allowed for a marked improvement in the performance of Attack types and combinations using it have been found in recent Winning Combinations lists, usage of Attack types–particularly in the first stage of events–is still quite low.

In order to help give Attack types a more defined purpose and increased value for the first stage, we have therefore made the decision to increase Burst Finishes from being worth 1 Point to 2 Points. Outspins, KOs, and Frames/God Chips falling off are still 1 Point, and matches are still won after a player scores 3 Points total.

This was made possible due to the release of Xtreme’ and Hunter’. The tight lock on these Drivers helps to reduce the possibility of an Attack type self-bursting, which is one of the primary reasons we had never considered imposing the two point Burst Finish rule for first stage matchws–which are only to 3 Points, unlike Deck Format’s 5 Points–previously.

Burst Finishes in general have also become less common overall, but Xtreme’ does make them a lot more likely in certain situations. Changing Burst Finishes to two points also makes the risk/reward factor of using Stamina types (using Drivers like Bearing) higher, which can affect the choices players will make.

We chose to leave KOs at 1 Point due to the more unpredictable nature of them in combination with the shorter three-point nature of first stage matches. We didn’t like the idea of an Attack user doing a perfect bank and then getting KOed while the opposing Stamina type gets wall-saved.

This rule update allows us to–at least for the time being–avoid banning any other parts. Despite the increased number of bans throughout Burst Format thus far, the ideal has always been to avoid bans, and we feel that this solution will be a strong alternative.



Metal Fight Limited Format Updates

[Image: beyblade-gravity-metal-wheel.png]

Metal Fight Limited  Format: Gravity’s Initial Spin Direction Selection  in Deck Format Clarification
Following our July 2018 mode change restrictions for the Gravity Metal Wheel allowing only one mode change per match, we realized that one additional clarification was needed after the first event of Beyblade Remembrance 2018 in Toronto in order to prevent a possible second mode change in Deck Format.

As such, the following ruling was added to the rulebook, applicable to anyone using Gravity in their deck:

Metal Fight Limited Format Rulebook Wrote:In the final stage of events, Gravity’s initial spin direction must be declared to the judge while their deck is being inspected.

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Don’t miss the July 2018 rule updates. Read Now.
  • Burst Format: Spriggan Requiem & Maximum Garuda Layers Unbanned



Burst Format Updates

[Image: Spriggan-Requiem-Layer-Beyblade-Burst.png] [Image: maximum-garuda-layer-beyblade-burst.png]

Burst Format: Spriggan Requiem & Maximum Garuda Layers Unbanned
Recent releases such as Hell Salamander and Archer Hercules have been proven to stand a better chance against Spriggan Requiem and Maximum Garuda, paving the way for their return. We believe that as a result both Layers will not be nearly as centralizing as they were earlier in the year.

Please note:
  • This unban is separate from and does not include Hasbro’s Spryzen Requiem S3 or Garuda G3 Layers.
  • Maximum Garuda may only be used with the Maximum Garuda God Chip or Metal God Chip.
  • Spriggan Requiem's mode (spin direction) cannot be changed between rounds within the same match.

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

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Organizer’s Guide & Community Rules: New Guidelines for Failure to Submit Results & Fees
  • Burst Format: God Chips Popping Off Constitute a Round Loss
  • Burst Format: Repeating Hasbro and TAKARA-TOMY Parts in Deck Format is not Permitted

Organizer’s Guide Updates

IMPORTANT Organizer’s Guide: New Guidelines for Failure to Submit Results & Fees
Recently we have been making an enormous effort to get the ranking system back up to date. You can keep track of our progress as updates are posted here.

However, one of the biggest issues has been that many Organizers have failed to submit their tournament results, winning combinations, or fees within the given 14 day period, as outlined by the Organizer’s Guide:

Organizer’s Guide Wrote:All tournament fees must be submitted via PayPal to donate@worldbeyblade.org no later than 14 days after a tournament has taken place.



The results spreadsheet must be filled out and linked in your tournament topic no later than 14 days after your event takes place.

This has resulted in us having to chase down Organizers to retrieve this information, and it has slowed down the process considerably. In order to hopefully help combat this, to set more defined expectations for our Organizers who accept the responsibility of hosting events for their community, and to prevent our members from having to wait for extended periods to see their results reflected in the rankings in the future, we have decided to implement some more strict guidelines and consequences for failure to submit tournament results, winning combinations, or fees on time.

To begin, all events that occurred on or before May 30th 2018 that have not submitted either their tournament results spreadsheet, winning combinations, or fees will be subject to the following effective August 6th 2018:

  • Step 1: 1 Week After August 6th 2018 - 20% Warning, expires in 1 year (24 Hour Suspension)
  • Step 2: 1 Week After Step 1 - 30% Warning, expires in 1 year (1 Month Suspension)
  • Step 3: 2 Weeks After Step 2 - 40% Warning, expires in 1 year (6 Month Suspension)

This being said, we sincerely hope that nobody will even have to reach Step 1. If you are an Organizer, please ensure that you are willing and able to commit to the responsibilities required by the role. Upon submission of any missing tournament information, any existing warnings related to it will be removed.

We also need to be held accountable ourselves for ensuring that everything is submitted on time, which is why we are making an effort to make the expectations clearer moving forward. And it’s also why we are only including events that occurred up until the end of May at this point as we know that we still have a ways to go before we can catch up to that point.

And of course, if there is any legitimate personal circumstances which are preventing you from getting results or fees submitted on time, please be sure to contact one of our Organized Play Contributors so that we are aware of the situation and can make an exception. We want everyone to remain accountable for their responsibilities, but we also understand that everyone here is a volunteer and that things do happen sometimes.

These guidelines have now been added to our Organizer’s Guide and also to our Community Rules under “Organizer Violations”.




Burst Format Updates

Burst Format: God Chips Popping Off Constitute a Round Loss
A God Chip popping off mid-battle now constitutes an immediate round loss. Players must then put the God Chip back in for the next round.

Burst Format: Repeating Hasbro and TAKARA-TOMY Parts in Deck Format is not Permitted
You may not repeat Hasbro and TAKARA-TOMY parts within your Deck during Deck Format. This means for example that you cannot have both a Valkyrie and a Valtryek Layer in your Deck. The same goes for Hasbro and TAKARA-TOMY Drivers.






Metal Fight Limited Format Updates

[Image: Beyblade-Metal-Fury-Scythe-Wheel.jpg]

Metal Fight Limited Format: Ban List v2.0 – Scythe (Metal Fury) Metal Wheel Banned
Our first ban list update for MFL in nearly two years! With Metal Fight Beyblade’s tenth anniversary just around the corner, we felt now the time was right to inject some life and shake things up for the format.

As such, the Scythe (Metal Fury) Metal Wheel is now banned.

The Scythe (Metal Fury) Metal Wheel has proven itself to be an extremely versatile and powerful Metal Wheel. It exhibits respectable traits in all three types: Attack, Defense, and Stamina depending on the situation and combination used. It is for this reason we’ve chosen to add Scythe to the ban list for the first time.


[Image: beyblade-gravity-metal-wheel.png]

Metal Fight Limited Format: Gravity Metal Wheel Mode Changing Restrictions
The mode (spin direction) of the Gravity Metal Wheel may now only be changed once per match in both the first and final stages of our events.

Gravity has always been an inherently versatile Metal Wheel with the ability to switch spin directions. This, combined with its also respectable traits in all three types has made it just a bit too safe and centralizing, so we’ve decided to impose this restriction to lower its versatility slightly.

You can view past ban lists and discuss this update here, in the Metal Fight Limited Ban List Discussion thread.

Thank you so much to everyone who entered!
Outlined below are several important new ruling additions, updates, and clarifications to the WBO Organized Play Burst Format rulebook and the Organizers' Guide. View all WBO Organized Play Rules & Resources here, and a summary of the changes below:

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Burst Format: Spryzen Requiem Banned
  • Burst Format: Revive Phoenix “Revive Armour” Gimmick Clarifications
  • Burst Format: Frames Falling Off Constitutes a Round Loss
  • Organizer’s Guide: Stadiums – Wipes or Cleaning Solution Clarifications



Burst Format Updates

[Image: Spryzen-Requiem-Hasbro-Layer-Banned-WBO.png]

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Hasbro's Spryzen Requiem Banned
Hasbro’s recently released Spryzen Requiem Layer is now banned.

Given the current banned status of the TAKARA-TOMY version–Spriggan Requiem–and reports that Hasbro’s version fits even tighter with Bearing than the TT version, we feel that banning Spryzen Requiem as a precaution until further testing is conducted is required. WBO Contributor Jojo [Jp0t] also posted a testing video of her own which demonstrates the strength of Spryzen Requiem against Bloody and Nightmare Longinus. It didn’t burst even once.

We encourage everyone to continue posting test results within the Spryzen Requiem testing thread in the meantime. The ban will continue to be evaluated as more testing is conducted and more Beyblades are released.


[Image: Revive-Phoenix-Layer-Beyblade-Burst.png]
Burst Format: Revive Phoenix “Revive Armour” Gimmick Clarifications
The newly released Revive Phoenix’s “Revive Armour” (the outer ring of the Layer which can pop off mid-battle) must be used with the Layer.

When the ring comes off during battle it is considered an active piece in the stadium as part of the Revive Phoenix combination in use. This means any hits, KO, or Burst it inflicts on the opposing Beyblade are considered to be Revive Phoenix’s.

Players and judges should not try to pick up the Revive Armour at all until the round has ended.

The Revive Armour must be reattached after each round it comes off.


Burst Format: Frames Falling Off Constitutes a Round Loss
If a Frame falls off during battle, the round ends immediately and the user wielding that Beyblade is given a round loss (1 Point in the first stage and in Deck Format). The user must then attach their Frame again and continue the match to the next round if their opponent hasn’t won yet.





Organizer’s Guide Updates

Organizer’s Guide: Stadiums – Wipes or Cleaning Solution Clarifications
The “Wipes or Cleaning Solution” section of the Organizer’s Guide has been updated to provide clarification regarding what is permitted to be used for stadium cleaning:

Organizer’s Guide – Wipes or Cleaning Solution Wrote:BeyStadiums can accumulate dirt that can affect how Beyblades perform. Keep BeyStadiums at your tournament clean with either pre-wetted wipes or a cloth and a gentle cleaning solution. Ideally an isopropyl alcohol or water-based solution. Ensure that any such solution does not leave behind residue of any kind that may potentially change the slickness of the stadium floor or walls unnaturally.

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

Rule Updates Overview
  • IMPORTANT Burst Format: Effective July 2nd, 2018 – Level Chips Unbanned
  • Burst Format: Spriggan Requiem Layer - Trial Ban Continues
  • New Organizer Resource: WBO Organizer Pre-Tournament Announcement Guide & Notes Template

Burst Format Updates

IMPORTANT Burst Format: Effective July 2nd, 2018 – Level Chips Unbanned
The Level Chip Layer accessory has now been released more widely in Japan, causing the price for them to plummet. As a result, we have decided to lift the ban on Level Chips effective July 2nd, 2018. The Level Chip will be legal to use in WBO Organized Play Events on or after that date.

Level Chip Deck Format Restrictions: When legalized on July 2nd, Level Chips will be restricted to one per deck in Deck Format.

Burst Format: Spriggan Requiem Layer - Ban Continues
Since the announcement of Spriggan Requiem’s trial ban last month, we have been monitoring the health of the metagame. A positive improvement has been demonstrated in terms of diversity of viable parts and strategies, but we believe that reintroduction of Sr at this point in time would be hugely disruptive and would jeopardize the diversity we’ve seen. As such, we have decided to allow the ban to continue indefinitely. It will be reviewed as new products are released and more tournaments are played.

We encourage everyone to continue posting test results within the Spriggan Requiem testing thread in the meantime.




Organizer’s Guide Updates

[Image: WBO-Pre-Tournament-Announcements-Guide-Cover-3D-2.png]

New Organizer Resource: WBO Organizer Pre-Tournament Announcement Guide & Notes Template

As WBO tournaments continue to increase in attendance as of late, the importance of improvements to organization and efficiency for our Organizers also continues to increase. To help assist Organizers prepare for and begin their tournaments we have created the Pre-Tournament Announcement Guide & Notes Template.

The goal of this guide is to provide a modifiable template Organizers can use to outline all of the pre-tournament announcements  they need to make and to capture notes related to the tournament all in one place which is easy to share among judges and WBO staff members after the tournament if needed.

We encourage all Organizers to make copies of this template for each of their events and modify as is necessary.


Organizer’s Guide: Multiple Events by Different Organizers in One Region Restrictions
Organizers may not host an event within on the same week as another Organizer in the same region (“region” defined as state/province or city depending on the circumstances) that is already hosting an approved event without their written approval in the event proposal for their secondary event.

This rule is being introduced mainly to protect the success of previously announced events and prevent the possibility of players being attracted to the other event instead. Such an issue is of particular concern when the previously announced event is being hosted at a convention.

Our hope with this ruling is that it will encourage Organizers to work more closely together when planning their event schedule for a particular region to ensure that there is no potential conflicts.





All Rulebooks Updates

All Rulebooks: Deck Format – Mode Switching is Not Permitted When Replay is Invoked
We have clarified in all rulebooks that mode switching of any kind (ex. Twin Nemesis Layer, Trans Driver, Gravity Perseus Metal Wheel)–if your Beyblade permits it–during a Deck Format match is not permitted when someone invokes a Replay. The intention of the Replay rule is to allow for the exact same match to be played again: same Beyblades, same modes, same launchers, same everything.

Hey there World Bladers!

It's that time of year again, BeyDays is back! We've been working hard behind the scenes to make this year's BeyDays event packed with festivities for you to take part in!

It wouldn't be BeyDays without our Organised Play events! This year, we're delivering another high-action double weekend of events across the globe, with additional perks such as extra funding for raffle prizes, waived Credit limits, and the chance to get your own limited edition Bit of Days IX!

A blast from the past, our #BeySelfie social media campaign is back! You all loved it the first time, so we want to see more of your Beyblade creativity! From today until June 3rd, submit your entry for a chance to win fabulous prizes!

We're also unveiling some new official WBO products on our shop! From today, you'll be able to get your hands on new shirts and tote bags featuring the new artwork of Taka & Fumi that we revealed during our 9th Anniversary! Seize the opportunity to get these new products with an added up to 15% discount off everything until June 2nd as well! 

And in case you missed it, we recently announced some major rule changes for our Burst Format events! With the likes of Maximum Garuda, Garuda G3 and Spriggan Requiem now sitting on the banlist, how will this mix up how you pick your tournament combos?!

Our theme rewrite is also progressing steadily and, while we couldn't quite complete it for BeyDays as we had hoped, please look forward to seeing launch in the next couple of weeks! It's our most feature-complete theme yet, including new high-demand features such as Event Invitations and Profile Battle Histories! We hope you'll love this as much as we've loved working on it when it launches soon!

...you're still reading? What are you waiting for, go get stuck in already!

Check out this year's content!


It's that time of year again! BeyDays is back once again, and this year you're in for a treat!

We're repeating our popular double-weekend format, so you have no excuses for being too busy to attend an event!

As with previous years, each region may only organise BeyDays events during one of the two weekends. Events held on the other weekend will not be counted towards any of our BeyDays festivities! Sorry!

But the main question is, which areas are participating in this year's BeyDays festivities? Without further ado...

– Saturday 26th May –
[Image: ca.png] - Beyblade North 2018 (Burst) at Anime North in Toronto, ON
[Image: gb.png] - Beyblade Prime 2018 at Regents Park in London, UK

– Sunday 27th May –
[Image: in.png] - Rivals Forever at Mahavir Swami Park in New Delhi, India

– Monday 28th May –
[Image: in.png] - BEYFEVER! at Yamaha Vihar Park in Noida, India

– Saturday 2nd June –
[Image: us.png] - IncrediBURST: Jack-Jack Attack! at Grand Park in Los Angeles, California

– Sunday 3rd June –

Similar to past years, participation in WBO Organised Play events over the weekend will net you a limited edition Bit of Days IX!


If you're in the area and free to join one of these events, be sure to hit the "Join Tournament" button on that tournament's thread! BeyDays events are always a blast, and you'll regret it if you pass up the opportunity to attend!

Don't see your region up there? There's still time! Gather some Bladers and submit a proposal to us! And don't forget...

Waived Credit Limit

As usual, all BeyDays events are exempt from the limit of Credits of 8 per weekend. That way, there's no limit to your dedication to Beyblade!

Waived Entry Fee for Emerging Areas

Any region that has been unable to host a tournament in the last 6 months will see the entry fee waived for its Bladers on this occasion!



New Competitive Bit: Metal God Bit!

It's been a while since we've introduced a new competitive Bit, so we're taking the opportunity to do so now.

Meet the Metal God Bit!


As the name suggests, this Bit is based on the Metal God Chip used for God Layer System releases, and now serves as the next stage of our Bit awards for tournaments hosted, following the Metal (5 Tournaments Hosted) and MF2 Bits (10 Tournaments Hosted)!

To earn this Bit, Organisers must have hosted 20 tournaments themselves, showing their dedication and commitment to Beyblade in their community!

Think you're already eligible for this Bit? Or haven't been awarded the Metal or MF2 Bits yet? Let us know and we'll get these shiny Bits added for you!

New T-Shirts and Drawstring Bags


The artwork on the new t-shirts and drawstring bags might look familiar. Back on our 9th anniversary this past December, Adachi Takafumi did some new sketches of our mascots Taka and Fumi for us:

(Dec. 04, 2017  8:55 PM)~Mana~ Wrote: First, creator of Metal Fight Beyblade–Adachi Takafumi–has drawn up the fantastic new character art of Taka & Fumithe WBO mascots we unveiled last year–that you see in our Anniversary logo! You'll see this used more across the site this coming year, and will also be featured on brand new shirts in our store very soon!

The drawstring bags use that same artwork. And for the t-shirts, we teamed up with talented artist Valérie Bastille once again to help colour it!

You can view each of the new products using the links below:

The t-shirts are great as always, and the drawstring bags are perfect for players looking for a way to carry their collection with them on the go to a tournament!
