  Scheduled downtime for migration
Posted by: Kai-V - Yesterday 03:41 AM - Replies (5)

Hey all WBO Bladers!


As we announced in the WBO 6th Anniversary post, there was a downtime coming up due to us having to move to another host, and apparently that downtime is coming very soon!

We just want to tell you about it so that you don't worry about the World Beyblade Organization disappearing for a couple of hours. Once the move is complete, everything will come back to normal, and you won't see a difference at all! We will still be using MyBB as our software, unlike what some of you feared. We're really just copy-pasting the site to another place, but you'll still be able to access it via the same URLs (worldbeyblade.org, beywiki.com, beybladeforums.com, beyblademetalfury.com, etc.) once the downtime is over!


So, be patient, don't worry, and tell us afterwards how you kept yourself busy Beyblade-wise during that time!


(We were told by our new host that the migration might happen as early as tomorrow morning, but it might fall on Friday instead.)

  WBO Anniversary 6! And it's only the beginning! (Scavenger Hunt now free-for-all!)
Posted by: Kai-V - Dec 04 2014 07:22 PM - Replies (193)

When the daylight isn't here to blow us away, it's time for what?? The WBO Anniversary! It's time to light up our Blader Spirits independently for a sixth year!

[Image: WBO_6th_Anniversary_Logo_3.png]

After more than 500 tournaments, and not that far from 100,000 Members, we've come such a long way, but we still have so much to do! Hey, you're so mistaken if you think we have explored everything!

We've got exactly what you need to bring some excitement to your life, and it starts right off with the highest crowd-pleaser: a Scavenger Hunt!!


Scavenger Hunt

Like last year, you can only try once per question, unless the question is found out to be too difficult and that we decide to allow more attempts per person. However, that would only be near the end of the Scavenger Hunt period, so be on the lookout! Forget that, you can now try as many times per question goal as you want, but we just ask that you wait for Kai-V's reply on whether the answer is good or not before you send further tries! One answer at a time, basically!


Here are the questions or goals you have to accomplish:
  • Host or participate in at least one approved tournament (4 Points)
  • Get four (new) of your referrals to Like the official WBO Facebook Page (2 Points)
  • Earn four (new) valid referrals and have them sign up on the BeyMap where they live (3 Points)
  • Get a photograph of at least four people playing Beyblade, with a big sign saying "Happy Anniversary WBO! " (3 Points)
  • Share a Beywiki article (requires proof such as a screenshot) (1 Point)
  • Share a BeyChannel video (requires proof such as screenshot) (1 Point)
  • Receive an additional, new Face (2 Points)
  • Be the first to find the "____ Face" hidden around the site each week (2 Points)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org or Beywiki!: "What will these serve for?" (2 Points)
    [Image: ScavengerHuntMetalPic.jpg]
  • Find the fact on Beywiki!: "What is the size of the smallest BeyStadium?" (1 Point)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: "What are the holidays in Beyblade?" (1 Point)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: "Which Face vanished!?" (1 point)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: What is the most common pair of Track and Bottom and how many times was it released? (2 Points)
  • Find the fact on Beywiki!: The cut of quick death. (1 Point)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: Which Beyblade recently underwent a considerable name change? (2 Points)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: Which Beyblades are for thuggin'? (1 Point)
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org!: How many people participated in tournaments in May 2011? (2 Points)
  • Upload a video to Youtube discussing what you like the most about the World Beyblade Organization. If you've already done that previously, upload a video about where you imagine the World Beyblade Organization in a few years, knowing our history. (2 Points)
  • Post your thoughts and results about Zero-G Stadiums with other formats, whether Plastics, HMS or Limited. For now, please post them in the base of the Beyblade Customizations forum, and support your test results with videos as well, ideally. (2 Point)
  • Upload a video of you trying to explain Beyblade customization to a kid younger than 5 years old. (2 Points) If you can and if you're game, add a segment right after where you try to do the same thing but to an adult. (2 Points)
  • Upload a video to Youtube showing your experience at an Official WBO Organized Play Event and post it on the WBO and share it on social media (requires proof such as a screenshot, minimum length: 2 minutes). (3 Points)
  • Upload a video to Youtube showcasing a complete BeyBattle from an Official WBO Organized Play Event with commentary from you/players regarding the match-up/outcome on the video or in the post. Post it on the WBO and share it on social media (requires proof such as a screenshot). (3 Points)
  • Upload a video showing your Beyblade workout (joke or not)! (2 points)
  • Upload an album of photos from a Official WBO Organized Play Event and post them on the WBO in the appropriate tournament thread. Example. (1 Point)
  • Submit a BeyChannel-ready tournament video to the WBO. Details on how to do so can be found here (Limit: one video per tournament. If you collaborate with another member in editing/shooting footage, we can potentially split the points and award two to each member). (4 Points)
  • Contribute to the Beywiki Project of the Moment: Back to the roots or any of the previous Projects of the Moment! Contributions must be substantial, such as photographs of at least five boxes for the Project of the Moment: Photograph all these boxes and put them away for good! (2 Points)


The more points you get, the higher on the prize-winner list you'll be!

It's simple: all you have to do to get added to the scoreboard is to send your proof of accomplishment or your answer to Kai-V by private message. You have until January 4th 2015 11:59:59 PM EST to achieve as many goals as you can, so nothing sent after that point will be accepted. Since you only have one chance per question, take some time to do your research well before submitting a wrong answer! However, we can guarantee that all of the answers are somewhere on the World Beyblade Organization's assets!

On top of that, similar to last year, we won't necessarily post a scoreboard, and you won't be told if your answer is correct. Since private messages are flowing like tsunami in that period, it'll make the job smoother!



The first hidden Face is... the Brad Face! [Image: bface.png]
Be sure to post its location right here in this topic as soon as you find it, because only the first person will be awarded points!



Scavenger Hunt Prizes

Additionally, if you're able to obtain 3 points at least, you will receive the superb Anniversary Face 2014!! [Image: anniversaryface2014.png]


If you're in between all these points, don't worry, you can also exchange them for regular but not ordinary Face Boosters! Here's what's needed:

Free entry from December 13th to December 21st!

To help as many regions as possible come out to play even in winter, we'll throw an additional incentive : the entry fee will be waived from December 13th to December 21st!

You can still purchase a Blader Passport for upcoming events, but otherwise, just have fun and get together!

Official WBO Book


We have chosen this occasion to officially launch a new, fabulous project: creating a WBO book!


[Image: WBOBook_aniv.png]


In six years, a lot happened, and not everyone was on this ride since the beginning, so it'll be a good opportunity to round up some things, clear some inside jokes, but also develop on the greater parts of the World Beyblade Organization that you wouldn't necessarily find in everyday life!

This project will spread on probably a year, so anyone that has busy schedules during school can still participate whenever free time comes!

We're looking for a gang of authors who will commit to writing even just one section of the book. There will be various subjects, and we are targeting a size of around 50 pages, like a magazine. It's really just a matter of writing well, and sometimes doing a little extra research on a subject that interest you!


Here are the different sections we had come up with:
  • some sort of introductory message from the Committee/a Committee Member;
  • articles about two or three big, active regions (Toronto, New York, etc.) : feared players, anecdotes, inside jokes, etc.
  • AND/OR one general article about tournaments to englobe anecdotes from other regions as well;
  • how to become a Committee Member / and an Advanced Member;
  • lists of things to buy to be competitive, without descriptions;
  • history of the WBO in 3 phases : before Metal Fight Beyblade (and perhaps even a short history of Off the Chain and Beyblade Forums; getting Roan and people like him from back then would be great), Metal Fight Beyblade out in Japan, Metal Fight Beyblade out everywhere;
  • Days created by WBO;
  • Profiles of notable Bladers (their journey, etc.);
  • WBO's "blacklist"/inside jokes (origin of carp);
  • Abandoned ideas;
  • history of top-tier lists;
  • notable Members (e.g. th!nk);
  • Brad;
  • collaborations (Hasbro, Nelvana, what they gave, etc.);
  • Beywiki (how it was what you were led to initially when you came, but also more);
  • anecdotes (e.g. the sets of HMS avatars and signatures the Committee had once);
  • graphics (Kei's section mostly);
  • what happened to past Committee Members.

There's so much we could write about, but the above gives you an idea of the direction we want the book to have. However, all of it is up for discussion, and if you have any suggestions of things to change, subjects to add, people to interview, etc., we will soon open a new thread just to talk about it and collect ideas.


So what do you say? Excited to be part of the team? Excited to read it?

Seriously, have you ever seen a seriously interesting book related to Beyblade before?!




Image Slideshow on Index

We've seen you all wonder why there are sometimes 6x more guests online than Members. Well, so do we!

To help counter this and explain to visitors what the benefits of signing up on the World Beyblade Organization are, we have added a slider of images to show some of the top advantages. You'll only see the slideshow if you log out though. Let's cross our fingers!




No more Standard Rulebook

Times change, and since the Standard format isn't the type of tournament that's hosted the most anymore, we've decided to remove the Standard Rulebook altogether. That means that if you organise a tournament, yes you need to print a few more pages to account for all the formats, but at least there is only one document to refer to!

So, here's a link to the Universal Organized Play Rulebook, which is the only one left:
http://worldbeyblade.org/universalrules.pdf

For the moment, "Standard format" will keep that name, but yeah, you get the idea!


On the subject of rules, we also wanted to let you know that we are planning to make a few changes to the BeyPoint System, notably to accomodate tournaments with a lower limit of participants in dire cases, and also to support and clearly separate different formats. The revised version could take quite a while to come though since it's a lot of work! Events will still be processed meanwhile.




As times are slower than usual in Beyblade, we know you may find yourself wondering what to do anymore. But hey, it's not like everything falls to dust just because Beyblade releases are rarer. The WBO is a living proof that you don't need new products to be active in Beyblade!

Here are a few suggestions of things to do, if needed:

- Start up a tournament scene in your region: There are still a lot of orphan Bladers out there, some who are not on the World Beyblade Organization yet strangely, and, to name just one country, there's more than 75% of the United States that has essentially not been explored yet! Finding those lost Beyblade fans, whether online or physically in your region, can help an area find just enough players to hold a tournament. And wait- a change to the rules about the minimum number of participants is coming up shortly, so the target will be even lower! It's litterally at the tips of your fingers, World Bladers! And you don't have to help only for your own region; sometimes, a gesture will help worldwide!
- Tests that were never done before: Besides the Limited format which has not necessarily been fully tested yet, there are several things to test that people might not realise over time. Mercury? We barely have any idea how it works in comparison to other Metal Wheels on its level, which is what has led to there being no Beywiki article for it. On top of that, it's mentioned in this year's Scavenger Hunt, why not delve into out-of-the-ordinary formats? Zero-G + Plastics, why not? Plus, it's a secret, but we might try adding occasional 'restrictions' to the Limited format...! Prepare for it!
- Beywiki articles: The state of Beywiki is slightly better than before, but there are still so many articles missing, and some of them are not even about individual Beyblades. Think of a concept that needs to be immortalised somewhere for future or easy reference? That's probably exactly what belongs on Beywiki!
- WBO Book: You're more the type to write but not necessarily about the Beyblade spinning tops? You could participate to the WBO book project, or write your own series like some of your fellow Members!
- Imagine what the next Beyblade series will be: Why not put your mind to some juicy speculations about the future Beyblade series, if it's not a continuation of Metal Fight Beyblade? There's a lot to debate and be creative with that. http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Speculat...ies-system
- Be nostalgic about the Beyblade anime seasons: Less into the Beyblade toys and more interested in the anime associated with Beyblade? We just opened the Beyblade Spirit encyclopedia to the public and there's a lot to discover but also help out with! The series is full of jewels!


Got any other ideas? There's certainly not nothing to keep ourselves busy, for sure!




Host Change


We recently received the poor news that our host will be closing shop, so we just want to let you know that a move to a new host will be scheduled before the end of 2014, and during that moment the site will be temporarily closed for maintenance. Unless something goes wrong, this should only last a few hours. We will make a new announcement once we know exactly which day and time the change of host will take place, so definitely don't worry about anything!

  Beywiki's 7th Anniversary!!
Posted by: Kai-V - Oct 07 2014 08:48 PM - Replies (47)

Guess what, World Bladers? This website opened 7 years ago today! It's time to celebrate Beywiki!!


[Image: logo.png]


Since it's still a work in progress, there aren't big changes as much as encouragements for you all to contribute to the max to this awesome project!


More kid-friendly

Admittedly, Beywiki doesn't visually appeal to kids, especially considering the numerous paragraphs of accurate and in-depth content we have, so to try and remedy this issue to possibly widen our audience, we're introducing the Bad, OK, and Great banners!

[Image: BeywikiBannerBad.jpg]

[Image: BeywikiBannerOK.jpg]

[Image: BeywikiBannerGreat.jpg]

Do you see a familiar face around? That's right, Blader DJ's here to help you understand whether a part is good or not!

These banners will be added to each part description like this:


[Image: BeywikiBannersExample.jpg]

(Leave us some time though, since we've got quite a few Beyblade articles to go through to add all the banners!)

That way, it's visually easy to identify whether a Beyblade is made of worthy parts and how many of them it has. Well, that's on top of the innovative feature we have, the Usefulness Categorization!

A thread will soon be created in the Beywiki Project forum where you'll be able to help and post which articles you have added the banners to just so we can verify that nothing was mislabeled. Stay tuned for the link to this topic, and thanks in advance for your help!


Have you got other ideas to improve Beywiki and make it kid-friendly? You can submit them here, or in the Suggestions for the Wiki thread.


On top of that, I've been doing some much needed updates, such as finally adding articles for accessories on Beywiki. It's not done yet though, so be slightly more patient!



Current Project of the Moment

That's right, it's time for another one of these!

The newest Project of the Moment's goal is to focus on the plastics and HMS articles, since they're lacking some love! It was brought to our attention, notably, that the Random Boosters articles for those generations needed some work, so that'll be on our list, but here are other subjects you can help with if you're knowledgeable about HMS and Plastics or that you own several of them at least:
  • Working on the few articles on plastic Beyblades that currently display inaccurate descriptions;
  • Write articles about Aero Knight MS and Dranzer MF;
  • Write articles for the several plastic Beyblades missing an article!

Discuss your desired contribution to this project and other ideas you think should be done in this area in the official thread for the Project of the Moment:
http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Project-...-the-roots



Introducing... WBO Anime and Manga!

Just because we're the most hardcore community for Beyblade metagame analysis doesn't mean that we've got no ties to the anime and manga attached to that game, and I used to own a website called Beyblade Spirit which mostly focused on that, so it's the perfect opportunity to bring that back to the public, since there's quite a lot of exclusive content there already! Give it up for the Beyblade Spirit encyclopedia!




The way it will work is that, since for some reason it got a lot of SPAM bots already, at least for the beginning all edits will have to go through me. We do want to moderate the quality of what gets published anyway, just like for Beywiki, so that's hitting two targets with one stone anyway.

I've already added all the content I had written for Beyblade Spirit back then, so there's a lot you can read and look at already, but to help add content, you can post right there:
http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Beyblade...cyclopedia


I think the anime is what makes most of us really nostalgic, and this wiki has a lot of running-down-the-memory-lane to bring you!



Face Contest: Design a WBO T-Shirt!

We're looking for design suggestions for what you think a WBO T-shirt should be (besides our current WBO logo, white T-shirt) and a few of you have offered to work on it in the past, so let's see you run wild with ideas for a shirt that would fully represent the World Beyblade Organization!

All details can be found in the following topic:
http://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Face-Con...BO-T-Shirt

The contest ends on October 31st 2014 at 11:59:59 PM EST!



BeyChannel: DIR EN BEY Toronto tournament footage added!

A new video has been added to the Beyblade Channel, and it's the footage of the DIR EN BEY tournament that happened in Toronto back in November 2013, so enjoy the show!






Winner of the Passport Holder Giveaway

In almost record time, the winner of the brand new black Rev-Up Launcher that was up for grabs for Passport Holders only is...


...


Sniper! Congrats! You can claim your prize by contacting Kei and you can post your Face Booster selection right here. Enjoy!
  • 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]





We hope that you'll all be able to be a part of the celebrations in one way or another, and remember that Beywiki, and now the Beyblade Spirit encyclopedia too, will always exist thanks to the members of this amazing community!

  Introducing: TEAM FORMAT! - Pilot Event: BEY OR DIE @ Unplugged Expo on 9/27/14
Posted by: Kei - Aug 26 2014 03:17 AM - Replies (139)

Hey World Bladers!

We’ve heard your pleas over the past few years and are excited to announce today that the WBO will be introducing a new Team Format! How will it work, you ask?



Introducing to WBO Organized Play:
TEAM FORMAT




Teams of 3
In this new experimental format variant, Bladers will begin by registering in teams of three.
  • When registering, teams must provide a team name that will be used to create a Team Account on the WBO.
  • Team Accounts may be used in the future for a potential separate Team Ranking in the BeyPoints System.
  • Team Accounts can only be created by attending a Team Format tournament and registering with your team. They will have a special "Team" user group applied to them to set them apart from regular users. Do not attempt to make Team Accounts outside of tournaments or you will be warned; the "Team" user group can only be applied by Committee Members anyways.

Team Captains
  • Each team must designate one member as the “Captain”.
  • Captains have the right to remove members from their team in order to recruit new ones at any time, except during a tournament.
  • Captains can only lead one team, for life. So, think carefully before you decide to form your own team; in many ways you have more freedom as a regular team member. This is important to prevent the possibility of a team of three slowly removing/adding members and then one day ending up with three entirely different members. This way, three new members can't take over a highly ranked team as their own. There is always a link back to the 'soul' of the team if the Captain remains.
  • Should a Captain choose to dissolve a team, their ranking will be nullified entirely and the team will cease to exist. One exception that will be made is if a Captain chooses to retire from Beyblade. In this case, he or she can pass on the leadership to another member, but only if the team has 50+ Team BeyBattle wins at that point in time.

Which WBO Organized Play Formats can be used?
Depending on the amount of teams who register, the tournament will be hosted in either a Round Robin or Double Elimination format.
  • 3-4 Teams: Round Robin
  • 5-9 Teams: Double Elimination
  • 9+ Teams: Single Elimination

And the Team Format can be played using any regular WBO Organized Play Format: Standard, Zero-G, Limited, Plastics, or HMS.


”Team BeyBattles”
The Team Format introduces a new concept known as the “Team BeyBattle”.
  • Each “Team BeyBattle” will consist of three regular best 3 out of 5 BeyBattles.
  • The team with the most round wins (which means a maximum of 9 ‘points’ for a team if they won all three BeyBattles 3-0) will be the victor of that particular round. This means that two strong Bladers won’t necessarily be able to carry one weak Blader on their team.
  • Each Blader will play one BeyBattle against one of the opposing three team members.

For example:

Team A: Kei, Blader DJ, The Boss
Team B: Kai-V, rooneyt, bugturtles

Kei vs. bugturtles - Kei Wins 3-2
Blader DJ vs. Kai-V - Blader DJ Wins 3-0
The Boss vs. rooneyt - rooneyt Wins 3-1

Final Score: 7-5 Team A

Before each BeyBattle begins, teams will have a brief period to decide who is playing that particular round. When both teams confirm they are ready, the judge will ask for both Bladers to step forward to the Beystadium. If at that point a player from one team does not advance in an effort to see who they will be playing against, an automatic BeyBattle loss will be issued to the offending team.

What happens in the case of a tie?
Here’s another example:

Team A: Beholder, Uwik, Khel
Team B: SK, Alice, Bey Brad

Beholder vs. Bey Brad - Beholder Wins 3-2
Uwik vs. Alice - Uwik Wins 3-1
SK vs. Khel - SK Wins 3-0

Final Score: 6-6

In this case, one final BeyBattle will be played to determine the winner. However, the opposing teams will select the member that represents their opponent in the tiebreak. Each team will select a member, the Captains will notify the judge privately, and then the judge will announce the match up.

Team Size: Unlimited!
Teams must play in groups of three during Team Format tournaments, but this doesn’t mean that teams are limited to three Bladers!
  • Teams are unlimited in size, but can have only one Captain.
  • Teams can be represented anywhere globally. For example: Team Kai-V can play in an event in the UK against Team Blitz, with members who have been approved by Team Captain Kai-V.
  • Teams, and individual Bladers may only participate in one Team Format event per month. This means that Team Kai-V cannot play in an event in both Montreal and the UK on the same week, for example.
  • If the Team Captain is not present to participate in a given tournament, a “provisional Captain” must be designated for that tournament to represent his/her team.
  • If new team members are representing a pre-existing team in a tournament, they must ask the Team Captain to PM the host to inform them that they have been approved to join their team and represent them.

”But I don’t have a team!”
Don’t worry! If you plan on attending a Team Format tournament but do not have a team, simply register yourself and we will find team member(s) for you from other players who have registered by themselves, or as groups of two.

Additionally, don't forget that we also have a Team Forum! You can try looking for team members there.

Team Format and the BeyPoint System
All individual BeyBattles played within the Team Format will be processed within the BeyPoint System as any BeyBattle in a normal tournament would be.

Team Format and Faces/Credits
Winning team members of Team Format tournaments will receive the brand new Triple Crown Face [Image: TripleCrown-Face.png]! All three team members who participated in a specific Team Format tournament will receive the Face.

Winning team members will also receive +2 Credits for winning the tournament, in addition to participation and majority win Credits.



Pilot Event
For now, Team Format is currently still in the experimental stage. As a result, particular details may change before it is officially introduced for use by hosts around the world. However, as a way of testing the format we have decided to use BEY OR DIE, our upcoming event at Unplugged Expo as the pilot event for the format!:

And as always, you can exchange your Credits just for Face Boosters too, like the following:

Stone Face Booster AMETHYST - 5 Credits
Stone Face Booster SAPPHIRE - 5 Credits
Stone Face Booster EMERALD - 5 Credits
Stone Face Booster RUBY - 5 Credits
Stone Face Booster ONYX - 5 Credits
Face Booster JET - 4 Credits

Face Booster CRIMSON - 3 Credits
Face Booster AZURE - 3 Credits
Face Booster AMBER - 3 Credits
Face Booster VIOLET - 3 Credits
Face Booster JADE - 3 Credits
Face Booster DIAMOND - 2 Credits

The 'costs' haven't changed!


Just to remind everyone, here's how you can get Credits at WBO events:

For getting the 1st place in a tournament: +3
For getting the 2nd place in a tournament: +2
For getting the 3rd place in a tournament: +1
For winning the majority of your matches: +1
Organising a tournament: +1
Participating in a tournament: +1


That means that if, for example, you hosted a tournament and ended up coming first on top, then you'd get a total of 6 Credits!



But wait, we also have a surprise for some of you! Since the temporary wave 3.5 of the Blader Rewards ended rather soon at the beginning of July, which caused a void for the whole rest of the month until July 31st, and that it would have been more or less fair to be able to process some July tournaments before the cutoff date and others only afterwards that would have counted towards wave 4, we decided to award Credits earned during July only now!


Enjoy these new prizes, especially the few plastic Beyblades in there!




On top of that, we're also ready to unveil the long-awaited, long list of winners in several past BeyLottos!!

As always, post your choice of Face Booster in this thread, and we'll shoot the Faces your way once we've gotten a few at once!





A new video has been added to BeyChannel : the tournament video for A YEAR: The Month of Dreading that happened in September 2013 in Toronto!









We just wanted to also repeat that all buyers and sellers should be extremely wary of who they are dealing with on the World Beyblade Organization. If a seller claims to have a Beyblade and does not provide photographs with their username on a piece of paper in it, don't send them any money!

Recently, user STICK-G has been discovered to be a frauder, especially with his account Swag007. He has affected at least two Members here, who were fortunately able to win their causes on Paypal against him, but if even we banned him, just be cautious no matter who it is!




In conclusion, we hope you enjoyed these news, and be on the lookout for further positive announcements in the near future!

  HMS & Plastic Remembrance Day 2014 - July 19th & 20th!!
Posted by: Kai-V - Jun 27 2014 01:27 AM - Replies (105)

Is the hangover from BeyDays finished? Are you finally done with school and ready for some action?! Oh yeah, you got it right, it’s time to go back to the source of the joy : HMS & Plastic Remembrance Day!!


[Image: MyL9kn6.png]


The dates to look out for this year areJuly 19th & 20th. Let’s blaze the world with the celebrations!


Tournaments of the HMS or Plastic format!

On this beautiful weekend, the most dedicated areas will be taking some time to remember the genesis of Beyblade in the world! Here's the current list of tournaments part of HMS & Plastic Remembrance Day:

July 18th 2014 (exceptionally)
July 19th 2014
July 20th 2014
Yeah, not many confirmed tournaments so far, but we’re almost a month away, so hold on and prepare your horses!



As can be done even during the rest of the year if there are no other prizes, the top three winners in these tournaments can choose one of the following exclusive Face Boosters:
  • Face Booster MAROON [Image: faceboostermaroon.png]
  • Face Booster FLAXEN [Image: faceboosterflaxen.png]
  • Face Booster CELESTE [Image: faceboosterceleste.png]

If you’re part of the top 3 in one of the above events, tell the WBO Organizer what your choice of Face Booster among the list is so that the Committee can open it for you!

Additionally, these three Face Boosters are now available for all plastics and HMS tournaments throughout the year, even if there are prizes!!



Woah, wait! You can still win anyway at the WBO regardless of how well you do in tournaments! All entrants of an HMS or Plastic tournament held on the Remembrance Day will also receive 1 extra Credit just for playing in the event! In other words, you'll get 2 Credits just for participating, and that means you could get a free Face Booster or even better prizes in our Blader Rewards Campaign!


Exclusive BeyLotto

Plastics and HMS are awesome on their own and are enough reason to enter a tournament (or 2!) during these celebrations in July, but extra incentive certainly never hurt anyone! The WBO brings you the traditional exclusive, limited BeyLotto! The only requirement in order to be entered for a chance to win a prize is to play in a tournament on HMS & Plastic Remembrance Day! Phew, no weird ritual to do to be accepted; school’s over, remember?


[Image: beylotto.png]


The prizes this year will certainly make you drool!

[Image: CyberDranzer_BeyLotto.JPG]

1st Place: Cyber Dranzer (courtesy of Cannon), Dragoon F, Driger S, Wolborg 2, Seaborg, Draciel F, Draciel S!!

2nd Place: Salamalyon, Auto Change Balancer, Dragoon F, Cyber Dragoon, Gaia Dragoon, Driger F, Master Draciel!

3rd Place: Dranzer F, Dragoon F, Salamalyon, Master Driger, Seaborg 2, Gaia Dragoon!

4th Place: Draciel F, Seaborg 2, Driger F, Master Dranzer, Dragoon F!

5th Place: Seaborg 2, Trypio, Dranzer F, Wyborg, Galman!



On top of that, the 1st to 10th place winners will have their choice of
  • 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]


11th to 30th Place will have their choice of
  • Face Booster RED [Image: faceboosterred.png]
  • Face Booster BLUE [Image: faceboosterblue.png]
  • Face Booster GREEN [Image: faceboostergreen.png]
  • Face Booster ORANGE [Image: faceboosterorange.png]


Also, because some tournament organizers may not be able to secure prizes for their tournaments in time, the top two prizes from the BeyLotto will be limited to the Bladers who finish in the top three of their local tournament.




But what’s that? Yeah, too small for a normal WBO announcement? You’re right, let the other goodies roll on!



Blader Rewards

In light of the news that the uberawesome Wyvern DJ Gold Ver. has been claimed in the current Blader Rewards campaign but that at least two or three of you were putting a lot of effort into accumulating enough Credits to catch that prize before anybody else, it’s definitely time for some new prizes to be instated!

However, since we usually ensure that Members do not have so many Credits as to claim all the good prizes right at the beginning of the new wave, but that, at the same time, right now we don’t want to forget the original contenders for the Wyvern DJ Gold Ver., this wave will actually be smaller and really short so you guys can spend your Credits properly before we have to reduce them to 7 by the end of July 31st 2014. Here’s the list!

Blader Rewards - Wave 3.5
  • BB-96 Beyblade Super Deck Set - 50 Credits (1 in stock)
  • Dark Knight Dragooon LW160BSF Limited Golden Dragon Model - 40 Credits (1 in stock)
  • VariAres D:D Mars Red Ver. - 35 Credits (1 in stock)
  • Sol Blaze Gold Ver. - 28 Credits (1 in stock)
  • Bakushin Susanow 90WF - 28 Credits (1 in stock)
  • BBG-15 Metal Stone Face Ocean Blue Ver. - 15 Credits (1 in stock)
  • Launcher Grip (Black) - 15 Credits (1 in stock)
  • BB-81 Launcher Rubber - 12 Credits (2 in stock)

As usual, just contact a Committee Member, mainly Kei, if you’ve got enough Credits and want to claim one of the prizes before it’s too late!

Stay tuned for the next big wave, the 4th!!



New Avatars
Superb, we're unleashing five new avatars to use in your profile to celebrate HMS & Plastic Remembrance Day not only now, but during the whole year too!

Organized Play Rule New Releases

(We already posted these in an announcement topic, but just for more visibility!)

Finally, some official new releases for those old Organized Play documents! We’re proud to announce the publishing of the Universal Rulebook Release 6 and the Event Guide Release 3, which should all make your lives easier!

Universal Rules Release 6
Event Guide Release 3

All WBO Organizers should make sure to print these new versions, and every Member needs to read both of these documents from the beginning to the end again to refresh their memories and make sure they’re aware of the major new rules, like the following :

  • Limited Format: It’s all known already, but all the details about the Limited Format are now included black on white in the Universal Rulebook.
  • Stalling Clause: The time for the Stalling Clause has been brought down from 4 to 3 minutes.
  • Attachment Tricks : It’s now illegal to try playing on words about whether your Beyblade is attached/ready/inserted/etc. No fake attachment is allowed either, and while i twas obvious, nobody can lie to a judge like by saying that they’re ready when they’re not.
  • Re-Shoot Clause: When invoking this clause, if you choose to switch your launcher, it must now be the exact same launcher type. You cannot switch from a Light Launcher 2 to a Rev Up Launcher anymore!
  • Winning Combinations : It was already announced last year, but posting the list of the top three winners’ winning customizations for a tournament in a timely fashion is now officially mandatory. The only exception, as always, is if a big event is coming up like a championship and that a qualifier winner will be traveling to the final tournament in that championship. However, even in that case, their previous winning combination will simply have to be posted right after the championship. If a host cannot do it for some reason, the lists can simply be sent to a Committtee Member who will then post them in the Winning Combinations topic.
  • Seaborg Tip Inverting : Legalized a year ago too, the possibility of inverting the rubber tip of Seaborg’s Defense Grip Base is officially in the books now!
  • Judge Impartiality : You’d think this was obvious, but some complaints and questionable behaviors have made us clearly write in the Organized Play Rules that, of course, no judge should even look as if they observed what a Blader was using and then go talk to the opponent who happens to be their friend or even their rival. You can’t give off that impression at all, so if that means you have to restrain yourself and remain seated at the stadium in silence until both Bladers are ready, then so be it!
  • Clear Numbers : The Event Guide is now a lot clearer! There are clear numbers for each format, as well as refined explanations where applicable. We’ve also added Swiss as an official format, but make sure you only use it if you fully understand its workings!


That’s about it, but just in case we forgot any detail, as we mentioned, make sure to download and read the new versions right now!



New Promotions!

The World Beyblade Organization is proud to welcome Naijalak on its Committee!

On top of that, we’d also like to announce that the following Members are now Advanced Members : Time, Stars, TheBlackDragon, geetster99, ლ(ಠ益ಠლ), Wombat, and Cake!


Congratulations everybody, you’ve definitely made your qualities shine through!





And now…


THE ONE, THE ONLY…
