A new era of Fragbite.com

1
I come bearing great news, it's time to present the new era of Fragbite.com. What does that even mean? A lot. But first and foremost, it means that we have recruited two driven brothers from the United Kingdom to take it up a notch (or actually several notches) on the site.
Fragbite.com was initially launched back in March, as a way to offer our international readers the chance to follow us on the journey of the ever-growing esports scene. We've gone through some major changes since then.

Starting mid-August, me and Viktor "vuggo" Jendeby set out to work on a new strategy, with the goal to bring Fragbite into the future. Fast forward through hours of hard work and here we are.

A warm welcome to the Goodersons

One important step to bring Fragbite, and mainly Fragbite.com, into the future is to have a proper editorial staff working solely on our international site. This meant recruiting. Pretty early in the process, we were introduced to John and Robert Gooderson, two brothers from Merseyside, UK. We made contact with them and pretty soon it was decided that they were the ones to run the site, under my supervision. And here we are now. John is described as the leader, while Robert brings a lot of creativity to the team. That makes them a perfect pair. A very warm welcome to the both of them!


An updated design

Fragbite.com was launched with a quite unique design, with some features that had never been seen within the world of esports. However, some design elements weren't as easy to grasp as we had first intended. This, together with an overall goal to make the site easy to navigate, lead us to bring forth the changes that now has been implemented. Let me give you a quick run-through of the changes:


Color Scheme Fragbite.com has, in contrast to the Swedish site, a white base color. We have, however, added some color now as the Fragbite Blue has made its way into the header and footer.

Updated match ticker Launching Fragbite.com, we tried placing our match ticker in the header. The idea was to present you with the latest results and upcoming games immediately when entering the site. However, it turned out to be a bit hard both to navigate and get a proper overlook of the matches. This leads us to move them away from the header and instead placing them to the right on the site, dividing the matches based on the tournament they belong to.

Navigation The navigation here at Fragbite.com is based on topics, so is our main menu. However, following the update, this menu has a more traditional look and it will follow you all the time when on the site so that you can easily navigate between the different topics.

Scaling This is perhaps the biggest graphical change that we've made to Fragbite.com, adding another column and changing the sizes of the two existing columns. The left column, giving you a quicker way to navigate through the latest topics, has been made narrower, giving the main column a more proper position, hopefully making the articles easier to read.

This is not all, but those are the major tweaks we've made. We will continue to work on Fragbite.com to constantly evolve and make it ever better.


Would you like to help us out?

Fragbite has grown from a hobby project, started by the twins Tomas and Filip over 15 years ago, into a couple of established esports sites operated by a modern, Swedish media corporation. However, we are still very much relying on the help of volunteers, people willing to lend us their time and skills to make our sites even better. This is where you come in.

If you're interested in helping us making even better, then don't hesitate, fill out or application form today! Do you have any questions, prior to sending us your application? Please contact the responsible editor, John Gooderson, john.gooderson@fragbite.com or our Editor-in-Chief, Per Sjölin, per.sjolin@fragbite.com.


Once again, let me extend a very warm welcome to this new era of Fragbite.com. I hope that you will enjoy your stay and make us a part of your daily dose of esports!
