Blaseball is the Real Return of Baseball

I almost thought about customizing and buying a jersey for peepee after they were ice cold in that 20 inning game on Wednesday

been spreading out my votes, started putting some in wind sprints as well because I feel that may be underrated. I see so many grounded outs, flipping some of those may make a big difference

One thing I don’t understand is where a lot of the meta events are happening. Do I have to join the discord for that, or is it on Twitter, or am I just not paying close enough attention during the games? The wiki just has a lot of stuff and I have no idea where it is all coming from.

oh uh yeah the epicenter for this i think is the discord (w hich has a lore channel (which i’m completely ignoring)) and most fans are developing stuff within their own team channels

fwiw to anyone interested. I haven’t joined the discord or really engaged with blaseball beyond talking about it with my friends and such, and it’s still an excellent time if you want to tap into the feeling of following real sports, without the whole real sports thing. That is to say you don’t need to be extremely logged in to get some enjoyment out of it!

The commissioner is doing a great job.

For whatever reason this is exactly what I need right now. Baseball is on the verge of collapse and the NBA is weirdly grim without crowds. But Blaseball is just pure and good. I know it’s basically a mildly weighted random number generator. But taking semi-random inputs and telling stories with them is one of the more human things you can do. And the things an empowered fanbase can do in the space of two weeks is extraordinary. The fan art, the chants, the elaborate backstories, and deep grudges it’s all what make sports fandom great.

I have my random number generator now. They are the Chicago Firefighters and I love them with all my heart.

Congrats to the Millennials for getting the Fourth Strike.

The Millennials and Breathmints are looking real scary

Hyped after the lovers voting results

Very sad as a Crabs supporter. Season 3 is not looking like our time.

Interested to see what they do to balance power creep. If people get leveled up after every season we’re looking at increasingly strong teams week after week. Make the 5 star cap into 10? Incinerate a random player on each team? Nothing? Excited to find out.

The fourth strike sounds like a kind of attempt at a balance, which I love!

fourth strike is absolutely going to break the season, and if it carries through next season, it will automatically make those teams one of the best in the game.

That’s such a huge advantage, just in terms of a walk and a strikeout requiring the same amount will change so many games.

Games between four strike teams are going to be so long

Also, yes, I’m not looking forward to the season as the crabs do not have much going for them

I’ll always remember the 20 inning polkadot patternson game :heart:

As a Sunbeam faithful, while I’m excited for what Fourth Strike while bring us, I’m not putting all my hope in it. A lot of our weaker batters are really greedy and have bad decision making about taking walks.

I’m still very committed to rooting for my team, but I don’t see it radically changing the weaker teams. I’m buying up lots of peanuts just in case :peanuts::peanuts::peanuts::peanuts:

If this doesn’t get voted in I will be incredibly disappointed

In a vacuum that’d be a shoe-in, but the rest if these are also really fantastic. I might spread my votes around, honestly.

I am all about the player interviews.
