Listened to one of the live commentating streams on Twitch last night, blaseball_radio2, and it was pretty good. Someone has also been working on an automated commentary robot on Twitch that basically reads the update box when it changes. There is some cool stuff going on there. My team finished dead last, but I am still excited for playoffs to start in about 35 minutes.

Play ball!

I was under the impression that I'd inadvertently chosen to follow the chill Jimmy Buffet dad team. Turns out, I appear to have inadvertently joined the chill Jimmy Buffet communist dad team.

Keepin' it wavy

Folks in the Tigers discord chat seem largely in favour of letting the Fridays take Keeping it Wavy, everyone was pretty pleased when they got it last election.

Tacos are going hard for Soul Swap. We certainly can't get worse.

This close to picking a new favorite team. Especially since my wife is Spy or Die.

New interview article with The Game Band about their design process for Blaseball.

Hey everyone! Just got around to joining this thread.

FYI as soon as I got addicted to Blaseball I started writing an app for watching games.

I'm waiting on doing one more technical fix before more widely publishing it but in the meantime you can use the web version here.

As soon as the latest stuff is live in the app stores I'll let you know.

Also FYI, I made a #blaseball channel on the Slack if you want to chat there. The official Discord is just too much to follow so it'd be nice to have some blaseball chat with a smaller circle of people.

The drama this week is necromancy.

When the Forbidden Book was opened after the first election, it was accompanied by the first incineration, of Jaylen Hotdogfingers.

This week, the new mechanic was that we can now pick a player as our idol, with an accompanying leaderboard of the most popular players. One of the blessings is "Lottery Pick" which steals the 14th most idolized player in the league. Someone figured out that incinerated players can be idolized.

Therefore, people started a campaign to put Jaylen Hotdogfingers at position #14.

This took the commissioner by surprise.

My wife and I decided last week that it would be more fun to root for the same team together. We landed on the Crabs because of their back story, player names, and geographic proximity. So excited for tomorrow!

Yeah, I'm really digging the Jaylen thing.

As for rooting for the same team, my wife, another friend, and I are all rooting for different teams and it makes it fun for me anyway, since we chirp each other if we're playing, and then root for each other if we're not. And having 3 different teams to watch means there's a better chance of having at least someone to root for in the playoffs...

I liked that, too. But both of our teams were so bad they weren't going to see playoffs anytime soon. We'll probably switch up again after a while.

Great job, Rangerrick!

I am also ready to announce the 0.0.1 release of my Blaseball programming project: Blaseball Playoff Status. I have contributed to the cultural event of Blaseball!
