8th Anniversary: Welcome to the new worldbeyblade.org


Bey Brad
For our seventh anniversary, we changed our logo. For our eighth, we changed everything else to match.

We’re not just unveiling a radical mobile-responsive redesign of our site, or just launching new tournament formats and resources for players and organizers, or just giving away/making you fight for tons of rare Beyblade gear.

(Although we are doing all of those things.)

We’re also building a WBO for bladers who haven’t yet launched their first bey. For fans who are going to watch the new anime and fall in love with the idea of a world where they can go to tournaments, meet rivals and fight intense battles.

That desire was what drove me to create the WBO in the first place, and it's what drove us to undertake this ambitious relaunch. While working with Takafumi on our new characters (cool, huh?), he said to me: “Beyblade... and another hobby toys are the best tool of peace and smile of all peoples, I believe.” 

Unfortunately, it's impossible to not mention that we were down for a very long time, and some parts of the site are still buggy or unfinished. Battles and awards will be back on your profiles soon, promise! In the meantime, please enjoy the giant bio space where you can write anything you want and link to as much stuff as you want. :) I really appreciate your patience as we continue polishing out the rough edges.

But this isn't the finish line for us; it's just the start. You won't be waiting eight years to see big improvements. Actually, you won't even be waiting eight weeks! The whole purpose of this redesign was to give us a platform we could easily, rapidly build upon in the future.

Welcome to the new WBO.

What's new on worldbeyblade.org:



- Meet Taka & Fumi: WBO x Takafumi Adachi original characters

- IMPORTANT: New formats and rules for all WBO Beyblade tournaments

- Scavenger Hunt 2016: HUGE MFB lot, golden Burst Beys, and more!

- IMPORTANT: SUPPORT WBO 2017! Get Takafumi t-shirts + totes, Bit Booster Generations, and ...

To the peace and smiles of all bladers,

– Bey Brad
I can't imagine how much work y had to make all this happen! This is... well, I'm speechless, really. The site is beautiful, the mobile responsive is what everybody needed and everything is so cool! Congratulations, guys! I'm really happy to see all these changes and the waiting was totally worth!
Hey thanks for all your hard work guys! The new site looks amazing! I'm so glad it works on mobile, though personally the old site worked fine for me too. I love the new aesthetics and the anime characters are cool too.

Also love the inclusion of a "Like" button, something you've always wanted XD
The new design is awesome! Happy anniversary WBO! Smile
This is INCREDIBLE! *loud screeching*

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE how now it's mobile-friendly! Love the colors and the Bladers up front! Might be a while to adapt to the new layout but overall, your work and time was definitely worth it! Thank you and happy 8th anniversary WBO! Joyful_3

He drew the final lineart for us, but I created them with my friend Valérie Bastille.  It was an awesome collaboration you can find more about here: https://worldbeyblade.org/Thread-Meet-Ta...characters

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

He stepped down a while ago to focus on other stuff!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I really poured my heart and soul into this one, probably moreso than the first version of the WBO.
Just a question: Am I allowed to view the WBO in desktop mode as some websites have? Let me know. :V

There are no "modes." There's a single site that responds to the screen size. If you resize your browser, you can see the site change. As a result, all features are accessible on all devices. On mobile we hide some "extraneous" information, like usergroup tags and Bits. That said, this means that the size of your screen dictates what version of the site you see, and there's no way to change it.

Yes, big thanks to Angry Face and Kei for somehow managing to get every single one of them done in time.

BTW, a thread will be coming later summarizing some things that are currently not visible but are not gone will return soon (who's online, member list, warning levels, credits, awards in profile, battle history) and where you can also post bugs you run into. I didn't manage to get everything we wanted done in time, and for that I'm sorry. But we'll definitely get everything taken care of over the coming days and weeks, depending on priority.
