  Limited Format Ban List Update v1.2 - Effective Now
Posted by: Kei - Mar 01 2014 08:05 PM - No Replies

Limited Format Ban List v1.1 Effective Now


Newly Unbanned
  • WHEEL: Jade


As was initially intended with the Limited Format, the ban list is dynamic, so this is by no means final. We will continue to monitor the status of the format and further updates will be made when it becomes obvious that certain parts are deserving of being banned/unbanned. This is something that is going to continually evolve as a result of community involvement; it can therefore only happen if you all continue to embrace the format as you have thus far. So, keep hosting Limited Format tournaments!

To discuss this update, possible future updates, and to see the discussion that led to the decisions that were made for this update, please use these three threads:

MFB Limited Ban List Discussion (Public)
Official Limited Ban List Discussion (Veterans)

  GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT 2: WBO North American Championship 2014!!!
Posted by: Kei - Feb 25 2014 08:16 AM - Replies (165)

World Bladers!

Last year, we started a revolution … now it’s time for the Grand Battle to not begin ... but continue! Nearly a decade ago, WBO & Off The Chain Founder Bey Brad hosted a tournament titled “GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT” at ANIME NORTH 2005, and in honour of that we decided that it would be appropriate to name the tournament this year, GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT ...2! Why is it a "grand battle", you ask? Well, it's because the tournament will be our second North American Championship as a part of ANIME NORTH 2014 and BEYDAYS 2014!!



[Image: JlDi8LJ.png]

SATURDAY, MAY 24, 2014
Anime North 2014 - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel - Haliburton Room
LIMITED FORMAT

On Saturday, May 24th, 2014 during our annual global celebration of Beyblade, BEYDAYS, the best Bladers in North America will gather in Toronto, Ontario, Canada at ANIME NORTH 2014 in order to compete for the prestigious title of WBO North American Champion 2014!!!

So, do you think you have what it takes? GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT 2 will be open to the public, but if you don't live near Toronto, you can earn paid travel expenses to Toronto by winning a tournament in the WBO North American Championship Qualifier Series!


This list is likely not final, so please stay tuned for updates about more qualifiers in the coming days/weeks!


All tournaments will be played in the new Limited Format.

If you are not familiar with Limited Format, please take the time to read through this thread:
MFB: Limited :: Primer, Random Thoughts, and Q&A Thread!

And for the up to date ban list for Limited Format, please check this thread:
Limited Ban List Discussion

What do Qualifiers win?
Winners of these tournaments will receive the following:
  • Paid travel expenses, by plane or bus (whichever is cheapest), or car to ANIME NORTH 2014 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada for GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT 2.
  • An ANIME NORTH 2014 Pass

Qualifiers will be responsible for finding/paying for accommodations in Toronto, but we will work closely with each of you to make sure that you find somewhere suitable. Additionally, the winner will be required to consult with the Committee before booking their flight/bus, and then after approval, provide a booking confirmation to the WBO Committee before they can provide reimbursement for the traveling costs. We can also reimburse gas costs, but in that case, reimbursement will only take place in person after we have received gas receipts.

Tournaments All Weekend!
In honour of the original GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT in 2005 where competitors used HMS Beyblades, we have decided that in addition to GRAND BATTLE TOURNAMENT 2: WBO North American Championship 2014 on Saturday, May 24th at ANIME NORTH 2014, it would be fitting to–for the first time ever at AN–also host not one, not two … not three … but four other tournaments on Friday, May 23rd and Sunday, May 25th! This will bring us to a total of five tournaments for the entire weekend, spanning all five WBO Organized Play Formats including not only HMS and Plastics, but also the Standard and Zero-G Formats! Here is the full schedule:



Click on the names above for the official threads for each tournament and let us know which ones you plan on attending!

Why should I participate in all of these tournaments?
Besides how much fun it's going to be to play in every existing WBO Organized Play Format over one weekend ... as an added incentive to encourage everyone to participate in as many of these tournaments as possible, there will be added benefits to participating in any (or all!) of the tournaments at AN!:
  • Increased Credit Limit to 16 (regularly only 8 Credits per week is permitted)
  • Each tournament grants you an extra entry into the BEYDAYS 2014 BeyLotto (prizes to be announced at a later date)
  • If you participate in at least one tournament on each day (Friday, May 23rd, Saturday, May 24th, and Sunday, May 25th) you will be eligible to receive a two Face Boosters of your choice (same selection as is listed in the section below)!


Mandatory $5 Entry Fee = More Qualifiers + Extra Credits + Free Face Booster!
To help subsidize the high cost of flying/busing the qualifiers to Toronto, a mandatory $5 entry fee will be imposed on all Qualifier Series tournaments, regardless of whether or not a participant has a Blader Passport (if you wish to purchase a Blader Passport, the total cost would be $15 at a Qualifier Series tournament), and there will be no prize reimbursement apart from the travel expenses for the winner. We hope that everyone can understand this! The more funds we have, the bigger this championship will be! However, to show our appreciation for your cooperation and support in helping to fund the championship, all participants in Qualifier Series tournaments will receive the following:
  • +1 Extra Credit to be used for prizes from our awesome Blader Rewards, on top of whatever they would have normally earned.
  • One of these Face Boosters:
    -Face Booster RED [Image: faceboosterred.png]
    -Face Booster BLUE [Image: faceboosterblue.png]
    -Face Booster GREEN [Image: faceboostergreen.png]
    -Face Booster ORANGE [Image: faceboosterorange.png]
    -Face Booster YELLOW [Image: FaceBoosterIconYellow.png]
    -Face Booster PURPLE [Image: FaceBoosterIconPurple.png]
    -Stone Face Booster AMETHYST [Image: vszk.png]
    -Stone Face Booster SAPPHIRE [Image: 7kje.png]
    -Stone Face Booster EMERALD [Image: 9wl8.png]
    -Stone Face Booster RUBY [Image: 1g30.png]
    -Stone Face Booster ONYX [Image: 4dtz.png]
  • New Passport Holders will earn +2 Extra Credits, rather than +1, 2 Face Boosters from the list above, rather than just 1, and they will be entered into an exclusive Passport Holder Only BeyLotto!:

[Image: beylotto.png]

All Passport Holders who participate in a WBO North American Championship Qualifier Series tournament will gain an entry into this exclusive BeyLotto! What can you win, you ask? Well, here's the prize breakdown:

1st Place: WBO T-Shirt + WBO 4GB USB Key + Beyblade 4D Poster + BB-96 Beyblade Super Deck Set

2nd Place: WBO 4GB USB Key + Beyblade 4D Poster + BB-96 Beyblade Super Deck Set

Blader Rewards Update
Wondering where you can spend all of those extra Credits you'll be earning by participating in the Qualifiers and all five tournaments on the AN weekend? In addition to what is still available on the list right now, we have just added the following new items to the list:

  On the Road to the Half-Thousand Events!
Posted by: Kai-V - Jan 30 2014 03:50 AM - Replies (100)

As we mentioned during our 5th WBO Anniversary, the World Beyblade Organization is about to hit quite a milestone:


We will soon reach 500 tournaments organized around the world!

On December 4th 2013, we were at 461 events already. But right now, almost two months later, we're already at...


487 events, which means there are only 13 tournaments left until the big Half-Thousand!!


The road to this huge achievement is paved with great prizes too! To honor those who help us get to this milestone, we announced the following campaign:
  • For every weekend where two or more regions host successful tournaments, a prize will be given randomly among the participants of those events!
  • For every weekend where two tournaments are held, two Stone Face Boosters will be given randomly among each tournament! And for three, three Stone Face Boosters, etc.!

Some brand new Face Boosters just for this, what a treat! Here's what you could get from them:

Stone Face Booster AMETHYST [Image: vszk.png]
Stone Face Booster SAPPHIRE [Image: 7kje.png]
Stone Face Booster EMERALD [Image: 9wl8.png]

Let's already announce the winners of the first few weekends!



Week from December 4th to December 8th 2013

There were two events, all in North Carolina, so the winners of a Stone Face Booster are...


...


Thunder Dome!

stormscorpio1!

ლ(ಠ益ಠლ)!

And Tigerofthewest!

Congratulations to you four! Make sure to post your Stone Face Booster selection in this topic.




Week from December 9th to December 15th 2013

Events were held in four different regions on that weekend, wow!

Since some tournaments had only the minimum of eight players though, it would not make much sense to give Stone Face Boosters to the majority of the participants, so we'll set a limit of four Stone Face Boosters per event. Here are the winners this week!

...

kalpeshp!

shubham123!

joelbenny!

  Limited Format Ban List Update v1.1 - Effective January 20th
Posted by: Kei - Jan 18 2014 10:51 PM - No Replies

Hello World Bladers,

Since we introduced the Limited Format early last month on a trial basis free from BeyPoints processing there has been numerous tournament results, and much discussion in the community about what changes should be made in order to make the format as fair and balanced as is possible. Taking all of that into consideration we have decided to make the following changes to the ban list:

Limited Format Ban List v1.1 Effective January 20th


Newly Banned
  • WHEEL: Gravity
Newly Unbanned
  • WHEEL: Omega
  • BOTTOM: RB


As was initially intended with the Limited Format, the ban list is dynamic, so this is by no means final. We will continue to monitor the status of the format and further updates will be made when it becomes obvious that certain parts are deserving of being banned/unbanned. This is something that is going to continually evolve as a result of community involvement; it can therefore only happen if you all continue to embrace the format as you have thus far. So, keep hosting Limited Format tournaments!

Because we know that it may be inconvenient for players to learn of updates just prior to previously scheduled tournaments we will always make an effort to make sure we give everyone sufficient notice (hence the effective January 20th date for this update).

To discuss this update, possible future updates, and to see the discussion that led to the decisions that were made for this update, please use these two threads:

MFB Limited Ban List Discussion (Public)
Official Limited Ban List Discussion (Veterans)
and the MFB: Limited Discussion forum.

  WBO 5th Anniversary Results!!
Posted by: Kai-V - Jan 11 2014 02:18 AM - Replies (146)

WBO Bladers, the time has already come for the results of the Scavenger Hunt from the WBO 5th Anniversary edition!


This time, we got a whole 121 participants! This is huge! OK, most of them are tournament attendees from December 4th to January 4th, but that isn't a bad thing at all! Woo!


First, let's start with the correct answers!

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "What time is it?" (We're looking for a numerical answer, Beyblade-related.) (1 Point) 5:02, 5:03, or alternatively 00:27 or 00:28 - We ended up accepting both since it's true that the hands on the Horogium Clear Wheel are positioned as if the small hand is in fact the one indicating the minutes.
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "Which Beyblade name did Sonokong dub in Metal Fight Beyblade?" (1 Point) Warriors Ifraid!
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: Adorning the brilliant tree were an assortment of parts and from all generations. Name them all! (2 Points) Basically all the parts you can see on this famous tree: http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-HAVE-A-V...MAS--2592
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: "THE WINNER IS..." (1 Point) Cye Kinomiya, announced by Blader DJ at the very beginning of the Beywiki forums for the 100 Members giveaway of course!
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: How many countries have participated and been processed in the BeyPoint System? (1 Point) 12: USA, Canada, UK, Italy, Indonesia, India, Portugal, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, Philippines, Australia (Puerto Rico is theoretically part of the USA, but we counted both twelve and thirteen as good answers).
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "Which two Beyblades were at the head of the revolution?" (1 Point) MSF-H Girago Dragooon F230GCF and MSF-L Wyvang Dragooon SA165 (Attack Mode) GCF, the Beys used by stormscorpio1 and JesseObre respectively in the final battle of BEYBLADE REVOLUTION.


Secondly, as usual, let's start with the Members who unfortunately could not reach the few top positions to win a physical prize!

  Beyblade Geeks William, In Memory of.
Posted by: Uwik - Dec 20 2013 05:11 AM - Replies (95)

On November 20th, 2013, William Ma, of Beyblade Geeks (BBG William), passed away at the age of 20 years, after being involved in a collision north of Calgary days earlier on the Queen Elizabeth 2 Highway.

Beyblade Geeks have made a tremendous impact in the world of beyblade with their humor and enthusiasm via their YouTube Channel. We are grateful to have them as an affiliate, and as such, we also share their grief. The World Beyblade Organization offers sincere condolences to the friends and family William left behind.

A scholarship fund was established by William’s friends to continue his philanthropic legacy. We urge our members to help out whenever they can. To learn more about the fundraiser, visit William's Legacy



This thread will remain open arbitrarily if you guys want to pay your respect or have comments. Respectfully, however, we urge you all to remember him as how he lived, and not how he passed.

Unlike last year's Scavenger Hunt, not only do you only get one chance for each goal, but you won't be told whether you completed the goal yet, and we won't post a scoreboard! That way, the leaders will remain a mystery until the very end! Oooh!

We'll also be very vigilant about cheating, since it happened a lot last year unfortunately. More goals may be added along the way though, so keep checking this topic during the month!

Face Contest: Design a new Beyblade series!

Aww yeah!! It's been years but we're bringing it back, especially with the advent of a new Beyblade system or series upon us in the future!

The goal is to innovate with Beyblades, just like what TAKARA-TOMY did between Plastics and HMS, and then between HMS onto Metal Fight Beyblade and all the systems the latter series included! It has to be as realistic as possible, in the same vein as what TAKARA-TOMY would really invent next, while still bringing Beyblade to a whole new level!

You can find out more about this Face Contest and post your own entry right here:

Road to the Half-Thousand Events!

Hey, tournaments come and go all the time, leaving us with enjoyable experiences even if we face bitter defeats, but have you actually stopped to think how many the World Beyblade Organization has had since its existence as Beywiki?

Could you actually believe that we almost have 500 events in our history?! And we all have a part in this major milestones! Can you imagine all the time, sweat, money, and overall dedication we've all contributed to make this a reality? Guys, we all have to take a minute off to realise what an exploit this is, especially for a non-profit organisation like us.

We are officially at about 461 tournaments, which means we only have 39 events left before reaching 500!

We can definitely do it in the next year, but let's try achieving this goal in just a few months!


To help speed up the numbers, we've prepared a few activities to help along the way of this campaign!


Weekly Prizes

That's right: for every weekend on which two events are held in two different regions, a prize will be given away randomly among the participants of those tournaments! Since they're dependant on the number of weekends that fulfill this condition, they'll only be revealed once one can be given out! Don't worry though, they're swag!


But that's so not all: we're also introducing brand new Stone Face Boosters which will be available in advance! If there are two events per weekend, two Stone Face Boosters will be given for each tournament, not just one per tournament!

Stone Face Booster AMETHYST [Image: vszk.png]
Stone Face Booster SAPPHIRE [Image: 7kje.png]
Stone Face Booster EMERALD [Image: 9wl8.png]
Stone Face Booster RUBY [Image: 1g30.png]
Stone Face Booster ONYX [Image: 4dtz.png]

26 New Faces are available in total! Check 'em out!:

And we will also be introducing two new rarities …!

ULTRA SECRET RARE
[Image: lf86.png]

You'll have to wait for someone to obtain these insanely rare Faces first before they can be revealed to the world. Wink

Actually, guess what: if there are three events per weekend, we're ready to increase the numbers and give three Stone Face Boosters per tournament/region! Oh yesss!

The Stone Face Boosters will not be openly available until after the anniversary celebrations have concluded, so take advantage of the opportunity to get these awesome new Faces before anyone else!


Free entry from December 14th to December 22nd!

Yep, the entry fee will be waived during those two dates, in hopes of making extra Bladers come out of their house to participate in a tournament! You can still buy a Blader Passport if you wish, in prevision for the future events in the upcoming months, but otherwise you can just walk in during that period, register and play, simple as that!




Your Achievements, Now Featured!

Ever since our beginning, one of the cool features of the World Beyblade Organization has been its Face Collection, created by Bey Brad! All year long, each of you work your Bottom off trying to receive one of those prized rewards, and it's already a huge achievement to get it in your rows of Faces in your profile, next to your posts, but you'll now be featured!

Indeed, we've added a box on the side of the index, below the Upcoming Events box, to promote the latest special Faces Members of our community have succeeded in gaining! That means that all design Faces such as Pegasis, Quetzalcoatl, Beelzeb, etc. do not count as "special Faces", since they do not require quite as much work to get as the more extraordinary Faces.

We're really proud of people's effort, so it's great to highlight them to the whole community!




Monthly Giveaways

[Image: db7x.jpg]

After an absence of over a year, Monthly Giveaways are back!! If you're a Passport Holder, please post once in this thread to be entered in the December 2013 giveaway for a brand new copy BEYBLADE: Evolution or the Japanese version, MFB 4D X Zero-G Ultimate Tournament for Nintendo 3DS! The winner may choose whichever version they like!



Introducing: the Limited Format!

Things look bright for Beyblade's future, but for the moment, we're creating a new format to hype things up: the Limited Format!

The goal of this new format is to try to develop a new metagame, made of no overpowered parts! This means that, for instance, Synchrom and 4D will not be used in that format. This will open a world of opportunities to test old or overlooked parts to see how they fare against other parts that are more at their level!

Tournaments done using this format will not be processed in the Beypoint System since the circumstances are not really comparable to the usual Standard and Zero-G-format events, but Faces and Credits will still be awarded just like for the HMS and plastic Beyblade tournaments.

Here are already a few threads to help you get to know the Limited Format, notably with a list of banned parts. This list may be modified along the way, if parts are found to be too dominant even in that metagame, but it should be a good start.

http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-MFB-Limi...Discussion
http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-MFB-Limi...m-Thoughts

Let us know your thoughts about the Limited Format after trying it out in your region or after conducting some tests on your own! The format will officially be added to the Event Guide shortly.


This new format also leads us to a restructuration of the Beyblade Customizations forum! From now on, that forum will be divided in four different sub-forums:
  • MFB: Standard Customizations
  • MFB: Limited Customizations
  • MFB: Zero-G Customizations
  • Plastics & HMS Customizations

This way, it will be easier for everyone to differentiate conversations on all those different formats!




Official BEYBLADE REVOLUTION Video

And last, but not least ... the official video for BEYBLADE REVOLUTION: WBO North American Championship has finally arrived! Check it out!




Additionally, please stay tuned for bonus footage from the event that was not included in the video above!
