This is a non-canon beyblade burst roleplay (meaning no canon characters or events happened.)
The year is currently 2015, and we are as far as the Beyblade Burst GT mechanics. (This means you can use any beyblade set prior, etc.. evolution, turbo, up to GT.)
The way strength in the series/roleplay is measured is by power levels (which will be documentated in a google sheets for everyone to see and use in reference.) Power levels will be assigned to you by the owners and will determine who is stronger. This means if your going against someone with a power level that is not 50 above or below yours, they are definitely stronger. The purpose of this is to have the same effect it had in the show, where you must get stronger to beat your opponents (NPC's mostly.) Training will not be the only solution to power levels, you may need to let go of emotional attachment to get a big boost, but the secret lies in you.
Currently we are in Japan, not international and are in season one.
