BURST FORMAT

To win a match, a Blader must win 3 rounds. You win a round when:
The opposing Beyblade stops spinning
The opposing Beyblade exits the BeyStadium
The opposing Beyblade bursts

Beyblade Selection

Once across from each other at the BeyStadium, each Blader is to turn their backs and select their Beyblade in secret within 3 minutes.

Once a Blader selects their Beyblade, they must attach it to their launcher and announce that they are “set.”

Once a Blader is set, they may not change their Beyblade or launcher for the duration of the match. Once both Bladers are set, the match begins.
During Beyblade selection, Bladers are forbidden from:
getting up and/or leaving the BeyStadium
turning around before both Bladers are set
attempting to spy on or gain information about the opposing Blader’s selection
attempting to switch their equipment after announcing they are set



Launching

A round begins with the call of “3–2–1 Go Shoot!”
Both Bladers must simultaneously launch their Beyblades as the word “shoot” is called.
Keep your Launcher held within your half of the BeyStadium. Never attempt to obstruct your opponent’s launch.
Launch your Beyblade from just above the opening in the BeyStadium’s barrier. Do not touch the BeyStadium at any time.

Relaunching
If your launch is obstructed or noticeably underpowered due to an event beyond your control, you can request a relaunch, which will immediately void and end the current round.

The primary reasons you’d want to request a relaunch are:

Your launcher malfunctions in a way that causes your launch to be underpowered
You are accidentally hit or shoved by the opposing player or a spectator

You must request a relaunch immediately after your Beyblade leaves the launcher, and the judge may deny your request if they determine that you were at fault.

Battle Result Clarifications
Burst Priority: When a Beyblade is knocked out of the BeyStadium by an impact that also caused the opposing Beyblade to burst, the bursted Beyblade is the loser. This rule only applies if the burst was triggered by both Beyblades coming into contact.
If a Beyblade misses the BeyStadium during launch, it constitutes a round loss.
A Beyblade that re-enters the BeyStadium after hitting the back-wall of an exit is still considered in-play.



If part of a Beyblade breaks during battle, it constitutes a round loss. If the Blader then cannot produce an identical replacement of the broken part, they lose the match. (If you don’t have a replacement, try asking others at the event.)
If a launcher breaks during battle, it must be replaced by the same type of launcher before the next round can begin.



Legal Equipment

Only official Beyblade Burst products produced by Hasbro and Japanese toy company Takara-Tomy can be used in World Beyblade Organization’s Burst-format events.


All matches will take place in the BeyStadium Standard Type.

Beyblade parts cannot be painted, coated, or physically modified in any way. Bladers who intentionally modify the performance of their equipment will be disqualified and potentially banned from future WBO events.

Beyblade parts that have worn down to an extreme degree, causing the part’s shape and/or performance to be drastically altered, may be rejected from WBO events. Please ask a judge if you are unsure if your part is legal.


Stickers cannot be placed anywhere where two parts of the Beyblade come into contact with each other.

Hasbro Energy Layers cannot be used with TAKARA-TOMY Drivers and TAKARA-TOMY Layers cannot be used with Hasbro Performance Tips.


Components of a launcher that have been worn down over use may be replaced with an identical substitute from another launcher.

Banned Layer: Odin
The Layer Odin is currently banned from use in World Beyblade Organization events due to its extremely high rate of victory compared to all other Layers in the game, when used in certain combinations. Due to its lack of reliable counters, the game became unhealthily centered around it.

This ban will be reviewed as new products are released.
