WBO X: Let the 10th Anniversary Begin!

Hey there World Bladers!

Once again, we've reached the end of another massive year for Beyblade!

Takara-Tomy launched their Cho-Z Layer System, complete with metal elements, and have now begun their invincible Cho-Z Awakening System! Hasbro launched their Slingshock System, adopting a metalless approach to Cho-Z Layers for faster paced battles!

Across the WBO, activity and discussion is at a high, and we've also hosted a whopping 91 WBO sanctioned events across the world this year!

And, after another action-packed year of Beyblade; today, the World Beyblade Organization finally reaches it's 10th Anniversary! We've come a long way since our original press release posted on December 4th, 2008.

And to celebrate this milestone, we've prepared a number of festivities and announcements!

New Year, New Look: Major Theme Updates for WBO X!
First, as you may have noticed upon visiting the site, we launched our long-overdue theme rewrite today! As we mentioned back in our 9th Anniversary and BeyDays 2018, this long overdue reintroduces a plethora of features lost in the transition between our Legacy and Responsive themes in 2016, and also introduces some brand-new features as well:

  • Battle Histories on user profiles now allow you to rep your fantastic battle results
  • Tournament Match Listings are now visible on each individual processed event page
  • Tournament Invitations enable Organizers to directly invite Bladers in their community to their events without having to tag them
  • The final version of Organizer Processing, which has enabled Organizers to speed up our ranking processing by submitting their results!
  • And much more!

Thank you to all World Bladers for your love, dedication and commitment for Beyblade this year! Let's make the 10th Anniversary and the year following it the best yet!
10 years. 10 years of battles, ten years of combos, ten years of blading. Amazing to see how far the beyblade community as a whole has come.
It's been 10 years already,its been since this website was made and the community grew so much
I really hope I win CHO-Z Achilles or CHO-Z Valkyrie
Congratulations! 10 years have been against WBO. 10 years have accumulated bladers all over the world. Battles have taken place for 10 years. I hope that there will be a 20th anniversary.

I will start tomorrow Beyblade Burst Shadow Episode 1 on WBO's 10th anniversary. I'm only making the first episode.
Ten years. I've been into beyblade for almost that long but I wan't on here then. But I'm glad that you guys made this website. I live in Tennessee so bladers here a pretty rare, tournaments are extremely rarer then that. But I got to meet other bladers online so thanks!
Hopefully, this doesn't sound too cheesy or personal, but here goes:
I've only been in this community for about 1 and a half years. Throughout this time, I've communicated with many different people around the globe, all of these people being people I've never met before in my life. I already feel so in place in this community; I have felt this way for quite a while. I settled in quickly thanks to the help of other members, who were all very friendly. I don't feel uncomfortable posting in threads because I know that people won't criticize my statements or make fun of them. I've talked to people of all age ranges, but it doesn't matter to me- we all share a common hobby that is often laughed upon as "childish."

My beyblade career started when I was only 5 years old. By 2nd grade, I was starting to get out of my beyblade phase, but it would return from time to time, about 1 to 2 times per year, and during those periods I would blade almost every day. Just like LEGOs, beyblade has become something that will stick to me, possibly forever. Around 4th grade, I lost interest in it for a while.
In 5th grade, I went to Korea to visit my relatives. My parents mentioned something about beyblades, but I didn't really care about them since they weren't cross-compatible with MFBs. I never knew how much fun Burst could be. My brother purchased a Victory Valkyrie, which we couldn't assemble for some reason, and we assumed that it was defected. We didn't really care though.
I think about 6-12 months later, we were watching Disney XD when the Beyblade Burst anime popped up. We were surprised, because we totally forgot that beyblade existed and that we had a burst bey. We really got into the anime, and about a month later went to Target to get some more Burst (and we figured out how to put the Valkyrie together). At Target, we got a Roktavor R2 and Kerbeus K2 2-pack, which was selling for $10 for some reason. While my brother just wanted to get the beys that looked "cool," I actually wanted a competitively viable one. I ended up getting Lost Longinus.
I came across this website while searching for some top-tier combos for Burst. In MFB, I was a pretty good judge of whether or not something was good- I have Diablo Nemesis and Phantom Orion (I think they're good but banned?). For Burst, I couldn't really tell.
When I first joined this website, I was sort of afraid because I thought I was one of the youngest people in the community. I came to realize that age doesn't really matter- it's our ardent passion for beyblade that does (I just realized I'm not capitalizing Beyblade but I don't want to go back and capitalize all of them). I decided to make myself comfortable and find out more things about the website, which I succeeded in doing.
I started looking for tournaments, and when EpicTurtwig decided to become an organizer and host tournaments in Fremont, I was overjoyed. However, it was held on Sundays, and I had conflicting schedules with church. This meant I couldn't go.
Right now, I want to participate in tournaments. I know I'm probably not going to make it to first, but I do have some pretty decent Beys (rP, aH). Hopefully, I can become an organizer sometime in the near future so that San Jose people, including me, could participate in tournaments more frequently.
It's hard to believe that I've only been in on a tenth of what's been going on in this community, but I feel so much at home.  I really want to say congratulations for Bey Brad, and the rest of Committee, for making it this far. Without you guys, I couldn't have joined such a wonderful community and gained so much insight on Beyblades. Hopefully, I can stay to see another 10 years go by and see then how much it has changed from now.
And that ends my short and fun long and tedious talk.
Again thank you so much and congratulations on WBO's 10th Anniversary!
Happy 10th anniversary! The past couple years I've spent browsing and posting here have been lots of fun, so here's hoping it runs for another 10 years and beyond!
