What is Blaseball?
Blaseball is a game that simulates an absurdist version of baseball and encourages participants to bet (no real world money involved!) on the outcome. Participants use those winnings to buy voting and raffle tickets that influence new game mechanics, player and team statistics, player trades, developer-written storylines, and more. A blaseball season occurs over the course of 99 “days” that correspond to one real world hour. Blaseball seasons last from Monday to Friday (United States Pacific Time), then a post-season with four teams from each of the two leagues occurs on a Saturday. Election results are posted on Sunday and the game’s plot progresses in accordance with the voting.
What is this wiki?
This wiki serves a few purposes. It was started as a primarily fan-created extended universe based on the game events that occur on blaseball.com. Fans collaborate on and write about player backstories, team histories and cultures, history outside of the Internet League Blaseball (aka blaseball.com), and more. The #lore and team-specific chats in the Discord server are generally the hub of this activity, along with the Talk pages on this wiki.
Where should I go next?
The Blaseball page fleshes out a little more of the mechanics and ideas mentioned on this page in an in-universe style. The Style Guide and Facts/Lore Disambiguation Guide pages have more information on how writing for the wiki happens. All you need is an account and a willingness to collaborate with others! Other helpful pages and categories, such as teams, players, and rules, can be found on the main page.
