    I feel a little bad about the top tier players getting shelled, but only a little bit.

    Honestly the Tacos are the best team because they are the only anti-capitalist team. I am considering leaving the Jazz hands for them simply for that reason alone...I tried to convince the jazz hands to vote for it but they were so focused on winning...

    I feel bad about Nagomi being shelled for a couple of reasons. I'm both still attached to her from her stint with the Fridays, but also the Jazz Hands are neck and neck with the Garages in the race to be my second-favorite team, and I would love to see the Crabs catch a few hands and get knocked out of the playoffs. Jessica Telephone is a blaseball icon at this point no matter what happens to her, if her eternal fate is to Rest In Peanut, I'm OK with it.

    The Jazz Hands knew Nagomi was leaving them this season anyways. Comfort is my idol, a solid, steady player. F the popular ones.

    If you want a commitment to anticapitalism you'll be welcome in the Fridays fandom. We've consistently had two of the five best players in that stlat since the beginnings of blaseball. Elijah Valenzuela has been our anticapitalist hero since day one, consistently ranking as one of the best in blaseball. His sidekick in the early seasons was Sebastian Sunshine, but he got incinerated late in season 3. Sebastian's anticapitalist leanings would eventually be replaced by Baldwin Breadwinner, who feedback swapped from the Unlimited Tacos to the Fridays in season 4 and then boosted their anticapitalism even further with The Rack blessing prior to season 5.

    I'm not recruiting, necessarily, but if you want to dive into the team Discord community, the Fridays fandom is both heavily anticapitalist and ridiculously chill.

    You shouldn't worry about the shell

    You should worry about what will emerge from the shell

    Man, that 13 inning Crabs/Jazz Hands was tense. It's my first blaseball postseason so everything feels so high stakes.

  • Mortal SkyMortal Sky queer punk hedge witchRegistered User regular
    Current playoffs are:

    Wild League:
    Crabs (1-0)
    Jazz Hands (0-1)

    Mild League:
    Tigers (0-1)
    Garages (1-0)

    I've tossed a hundred votes at Enhanced Party Time, the most anti-capitalist of decrees

    All my money went toward betting on a Garages upset

    So, yeah

    Yeah, in the absence of any vibes blessings to focus on this time, the Fridays are throwing a bunch of our votes at Enhanced Party time.

    the Crabs have divided into two voting strategies this time, with some folks taking a Spiky strat (all the big obvious buffs) and others a Smooth strat (resting on our laurels for an election and voting for EPT)

    I ended up going towards EPT simply because I think the Tacos, Dale, and Fridays in particular all deserve good things eventually

  • MatevMatev Cero Miedo Registered User regular
    We'll getcha next time Crabs, next time.

    In the meantime,we've got to do some serious EPT to lift up our friends in the Tacos and Fridays, and a certain special lady to free from the Shadow Realm (Lore pending)

    Jaylen also has the permanent condition “debted”

    what cost must we pay

    I'm sure nothing bad could possibly result from this at all

    Hahahaha

    Baltimore Crabs forked out 59k votes to get a Shrink Ray, it ended up with Holden Stanton.

    They ALSO voted to steal (back) the best player in the league, Nagomi Mcdaniel. Problem is, she's trapped in a peanut shell and largely useless. But a price must always be paid, even for a shelled player, so my beloved Breckenridge Jazz Hands received a player in exchange - the newly Shrink Rayed Holden Stanton.

    God, that's funny.

    We also got the Fourth Strike and a pair of Gravity Boots. Feels good!

    Garages put nearly 70k votes into Lottery Pick

    So apparently the tech with stealing Nagomi is that it knocks our worst batter out of the batting order, or somesuch.

    We had Mike Townsend bumped from the pitching lineup

    Which on one hand is probably the best thing that could have happened to us

    On the other hand it does make me feel like we lost our mascot

    You sacrificed your mascot as part of a necromantic ritual, what could be more blaseball than that?

    Magic... not very lucky with blessings this season. We'll just have to win without Gods.

    You can't write me off like that! You're just a voice, pal! You don't know a DAMN THING ABOUT RACING!!

    Funny fact about the Crabs getting the NVGs

    every Crab vote cast on that was from a single power-player who wanted to see how much sway their votes alone could have on the game

    turns out 5224 votes is a lot

    Jaylen's pre-game ritual has taken on a different meaning now

    Hmm. Hm.

    Who could've foreseen that necromancy would have... Consequences.

    God damn, the Millennials are going nuts this inning. Got like, five points without a single out.

    Whoo nelly, that last game between the Garages and the Moist Talkers, Jaylen pitching hard against the strikeout champ Polka Dot Patterson. That was some fine blaseball

    The Snackrifice was conceived by like five Tacos fans in the wee hours of the morning, pushed without consent or consultation of much of the Tacos fanbase. Bit of an ill-spirited forced meme, that.
