blaseball - haunted baseball betting simulation

checked this out last night and it's kind of fascinating. essentially a betting game, with fake teams each with their own players and stats. games are played once an hour during the week and you can follow them live, with the score and text announcing whats happening. sunday is an off day but you can vote in the elections, which will change the rules of the game. i'm not sure what the peanuts do yet

lol bad timing for this thread, they're taking the next week or 2 off to expand it

After reading the thread title it occurred to me that even though I don't care that much about sports or betting or video game version of sports, a "haunted" version of some sport game - like ghost baseball, or ghost basketball - would be tons of fun, if one doesn't exist already. Special moves, special courts/fields, special powers, funny characters ...

xp when that list of neural network-generated video games was going around I thought Alien Pro Baseball sounded like a blast.

ok, so everybody's on a 5 star system, but chicago's axel trololol is a 5.5 star pitcher, and poor chamber simmons of the boston flowers is 0 stars

i assume hades is going to crush it again since they still have the best hitter in the league, Jessica Telephone

so the decrees go into effect after the season, i guess? one of them from Season 4 is:

TAME THE TIGERS
Five Players from the Hades Tigers will be Randomly Distributed throughout the League.

yeah those are the decrees for next season, the ones from last season have already been applied

does anyone happen to know if the coins carry over to the next season or not? can i just convert all my coins to votes, or should i save some to kick off the next year?

this was probably already answered but yes, coins carry over, unless you end the season in the 1%, in which case your wallet is redistributed to the 99%
