Welcome to the first issue of Battle Tactics with BrightLight!
I’m very excited to bring you this new article which will be published monthly, highlighting battle strategies for you to hone your brawling skills and become a top brawler. And with Baku-Con just around the corner, there’s no better time than now to develop your brawling tactics!
Let’s get this brawl started with my first strategy tip!
Gate Card Placement: Conditional
The order in which you play your Gate cards is almost as important as which cards you choose to play with. Gate cards are unusual as they don’t necessarily do anything outside of a battle. It’s not until they are actually used in a brawl that you will see their full affect. So, you have to strategically think ahead when playing Gate cards.
Using a card more than once is a great battle tactic! Take for example, the Gate card ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ which allows you to put a used Red Ability card into your unused pile. When using this Gate card you need to make sure that by the time a battle begins on the card that you have a Red Ability card in your used pile. If you are using a Red Ability card with a generic use like ‘Try Again’, which allows you to re-roll any Pyrus, Haos, or Subterra Bakugan, then don’t play ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ until you have already used ‘Try Again’. However, if you are using a Red Ability card like ‘Flames of Light’ then you can play ‘Flybeetle Rescue’ first. Then, use the ‘Flames of Light’ to add a Bakugan to the Gate card when your opponent lands on it.
Using Gate cards and Ability cards in a strategic order is critical to claiming ultimate victory on the battlefield and is one of the most basic but necessary tactics to keep in mind.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my first tip and I can’t wait to share more battle tactics with you each month. If you have a strategy that you would like to share with me for a future article, send your tip to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following subject line – “Battle Tactics with Bright Light: My Strategy Tip”!
BAKUGAN’S FIRST EVER BAKUCON U.S. CHAMPION & #1 RANKED BRAWLER
BakuCon U.S. Champ --- Christopher Ruff
Fanatics of the toy and TV phenomenon Bakugan traveled from all over the country to New York’s Roseland Ballroom on the weekend, for their chance to be crowned the first ever Bakugan national champion at Baku-Con. Christopher Ruff of Cerritos, California won the title, besting thousands of tournament hopefuls from Chicago, Los Angeles, Dallas, Orlando and New York.
Thousands packed the Roseland Ballroom over the weekend, as kids not only came to compete, but also to participate in a wide variety of Bakugan activities. Spin Master flew in 128 of the top Bakugan brawlers from across America to compete in the weekend’s championship event, who had been competing in regional Baku-Con tournaments since the beginning of January.
“Kids are crazy over Bakugan, and they really loved the Baku-Con experience,” said Harold Chizick, VP Global Communications and Promotions for Spin Master. “They came out in droves for each of the regionals, and the Roseland Ballroom was buzzing with excitement over the weekend. The action was just amazing. Congratulations to Christopher Ruff for being an amazing brawler, and becoming the first ever Bakugan national champion.”
Regional Baku-Con champions are Chicago’s Abel Fernandez, Los Angeles’ Elijah Torres, Dallas’ Nick Spagnoletti, Orlando’s Matt Torres, and New York City’s Andrew Perico.
