World Beyblade Organization – 7th Anniversary


Bey Brad
Happy anniversary, World Bladers!

Thanks for being here, on the 7th anniversary of the World Beyblade Organization. Whether you just joined the site today or you’ve been here the whole seven years we’ve been around, we’re really grateful that you’re a part of the community. We’ve got a few really cool things to talk about, but let’s start with the one thing you’ve probably already noticed:

Designed by former Committee member theflightyellz and refined by Kei, the brand new WBO logo replaces the original one designed by myself seven years ago. This is something we’ve wanted to do for a while, and this seemed like the perfect time to do it – not only is it our anniversary, but it sets the stage for all of the other projects we’re working on for 2016 and beyond … like a real site redesign. Smile

Having a new logo also enables us to do something we’ve wanted to do for a long time …

Many of you have been asking us to make WBO t-shirts available to everyone for a long time, and now we have! And these are seriously nice shirts: we’re using 100% ringspun cotton tees from Alternative Apparel and printing on them using direct-to-garment technology.

I wanted to be proud of whatever shirt we finally produced for everybody. And I'm very happy to say these deliver.

WBO t-shirts are available in both men’s and women’s sizes and come in white, black, and dark gray for $25 USD each. You’ll also receive the T-Shirt Face with your first purchase!

HD remake coming 2016.

As always, all proceeds from these sales will go towards funding WBO activities – and with all of the huge stuff we’re working on, your support is greatly appreciated.

(Event organizers: If you're interested in doing a group order on behalf of your community, you can save a ton on shipping by ordering everyone's at once. Let me know if you need help!)

Speaking of support: don’t forget that our limited time donation present, face booster αlpha, is availably only until January 1st, 2016! Don’t miss your chance to get these awesome Faces commemorating the release of Beyblade Burst, and help us build the future of the Beyblade community in the process.

T-shirts aren’t the only way to show off your Blader style: Angry Face has designed a special series of BeyLogger inserts to commemorate our new logo! Just print the PDF, cut them out, and insert them into your BeyLogger.



Scavenger Hunt 2015

The long-awaited Scavenger Hunt is back, with new quests that will test your dedication to Beyblade!

For those of you who have never participated, the Scavenger Hunt will task you with performing various tasks in the Beyblade community, like hosting or competing in tournaments, making videos and posts about Beyblade, answering trivia questions, or even just sharing the love of Beyblade with your friends.

In the spirit of looking towards the future, this year’s Scavenger Hunt prizes include some currently-unreleased Beyblade Burst items, like Xcalibur Force Xtreme!

Scavenger Hunt participants will get the first shot at the latest Faces contained within Face Booster DRIVER!

Free entry from December 12th to December 20th!

To help as many regions as possible come out to play even in winter, we're giving you a freebie: the entry fee will be waived from December 12th to December 20th!

You can still purchase a Blader Passport for upcoming events, but really, just have fun and get together!



Awakening Amaterios Prize Campaign

Awaken the legendary Beyblade Amaterios Aero Assault – and claim it as your own!

Prove your strength as a Blader by winning the most consecutive battles in a WBO Burst-format tournament to win an exclusive Face, the Shard of Amaterios. Collect 3 Shards of Amaterios to summon the legendary Beyblade straight to your doorstep.

The Awakening Amaterios campaign is valid for all WBO Burst-format tournaments starting January 1, 2016. We’ll reveal the Shard of Amaterios around that time. Awakening Amaterios tournaments are limited to 1 per month per region, and there are multiple Amaterios available to win.

A big thank you to Hato for generously donating one of his Amaterios to us, and helping us get this campaign started. Smile

Blader Rewards: Wave 5

Amaterios isn’t the only Burst Beyblade making its way into the WBO prize roster: various Beyblade Burst items are now available under the Blader Rewards program! Unlike previous updates, we won’t be resetting Credits this time, so if you’ve been saving up for a while, now would be a good time to go shopping. Wink

The Future

As we enter the eighth year of the World Beyblade Organization’s existence, the future looks somehow more promising than ever. Certainly, the fact that there is finally another active Beyblade series helps, as does the promise of its nearly-inevitable international release.

But what’s most encouraging is the immense strength of this community after seven years of ups-and-downs. We’re in a better position than we’ve ever been to do some amazing things, so be sure to stick around. Wink

To be clear, I haven't taken over the site. I depend on the rest of the Committee immensely, and we are partners together in everything you've seen us do since I returned. Smile

To begin, this truly have been one insane year for the WBO! From Team BeyBattle Revolution, to the announcement of Beyblade Burst, Bey Brad's return, new promotions and now, the website rebrand! Honestly, this was easily the best year by far for the forum.

I've have had such an amazing time working for the WBO as the Social Media manager and also a Global Moderator. I love sharing opinions (and also getting news beforehand!) and hearing everyone else's as well. To Brad and the rest of the committee, thank you so much for taking me in. I will continue to do the best I can. Smile

You guys should know that we have the greatest community ever. Kudos.


also that t-shirt face is so cute <33

Well, I'm quite new here in WBO, also in the modern Beyblade world (lets put like that), but what I've seen is that specially this community is really strong, nice and fun! Also, keeping a huge worldwide community like this for such a long time isn't an easy task, and... Hey! You guys did it!! So, what I want to say is congratulations, really, even I being new here I can feel the heat and the passion all of you still have for Beyblade. Something that I didn't have for some years, since I stopped following the series, I missed the entire MFB generation and "rediscovered" the franchise this year! So I watched everything again, since the very first series, up to Zero G, got a lot of Beyblades from all generations, and it made me happy again!

So, yeah, a huge CONGRATULATIONS to everybody in here. I love this place, really... Grin

EDIT: Oh... I forgot to mention, those BeyLogger inserts and the T-Shirts are must have items for me now! Tongue_out
And I loved the new logo!! Grin'
Dang so much change, but I love it! Happy Anniversary can congrats to 7 years of the WBO!
The WBBO has some great stuff

Congratulations from Team Zankye in 7th anniversary on all the hard work done by you guys, just amazing.

We Just bought a shirt to support WBO, the faster we can get the shirt, the faster we can mention in our Channel and potentially bring more people to Join.

Thanks
