Following Day 65, Blaseball was put into a Siesta in order to resolve slowdown issues with the games, after Day 65 resulted in another set of multiple spillovers. This resulted in an announcement.


A few minutes later games returned for Day 65 only to be put back on Siesta again after that to resolve stabillity issues.The Ticker was updated to reflect this and the website was changed to read "PLEASE WAIT" again. Around an hour later the site returned to games with Day 66. As a response to this the UBI for that day was given out 4 times.

Questing Results

As a result of their Knighted Modification, which was given during Solar Eclipse (Silver) Weather. Chambers Simmons "found a Heart and [felt] renewed", on Day 71. The result of this was an overall boost to their Attributes, which resulted in their batting reaching 5.5 stars.

On Day 91, Flan Prince "retreated from sounds of scuttling". This resulted in a decrease to their Attributes, that was less than Simmons increase.

Postseason Switch

After round 1 of the Postseason, the Yellowstone Magic and Moab Hellmouth Sunbeams swapped places in the Postseason. This resulted in the Yellowstone Magic playing in the Good Conference and the Moab Hellmouth Sunbeams playing in the Evil Conference. As a result of this the Sunbeams managed to become the Evil Conference winners despite being in the Good Conference. The reason for the switch was ascribed by Facts Machine (in a message) and the Commissioner (on twitter) as being due to "INTERNAL ERROR".

Ongoing Decrees

Following the Season 1 election, the following decree was in place for Season 2:

Siesta Announcement

On Friday, February 3rd, 2023, The Game Band would make their second Post on the website, announcing an Extended Siesta to prepare the site for Season 3.

An Update from The Game Band (2/3/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans,

We’ve spent the last year planning for the future, building and rebuilding the Sim, and figuring out how to run Blaseball in a way that’s sustainable for us as a team. Finally, after that long hiatus, Blaseball returned with a new Era. Rejoice!

…But that rejoicing quickly turned into some confusion and frustration. Put plainly, even with all the work we did, we still didn’t get Blaseball to where we wanted it to be for this launch.

Our hope was to be able to iterate and improve post-launch, but as we tried to do that, we realized it just wasn’t realistic for the amount that needed to be done. And it was negatively impacting your experience. We need to make improvements. We’ve heard your concerns about things like accessibility, missing features, site navigation and performance issues, and often found you saying the exact same things we were saying to each other.

In order to get the game where it needs to be, we’re pausing the Era for now. This is NOT going to be a repeat of our last Siesta — we are going to come back as soon as possible.

We’re really excited about the Era of Blaseball we have planned for you. What you’ve seen so far is only the tiniest tip of the iceberg.

We’ll be posting & emailing you weekly updates as we make these improvements.

Stay tuned.

February 10, 2023 Update

On Friday, February 10th, 2023, The Game Band would post their first development update concerning the siesta. They announced some upcoming interface additions as well as a survey active at the time of original posting.

An Update from The Game Band (2/10/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans,

This week, the studio has been focusing on retrospectives: looking back to determine where things went great, where things went not-great, and generally doing a bunch of process updates to make sure we learn from our old mistakes. Not just with the relaunch, but also throughout the Era when we’re live again!

On top of the retrospectives, TGB’s dev team has been hard at work testing and building Blaseball interface updates like weather icons (they’re back!), bet indicators on live games, easier site navigation, universal game days, and more information you might want on past games in the ‘Schedule’ view. They’ve been going through known site issues compiled by QA and are working with designers on prioritizing fixes.

We would like to get some more feedback from you, yes you! We’ve put together a survey that will help us learn more about your experience and priorities, and we’re also beginning to organize user interviews.

See you next Friday with another update!

February 17, 2023 Update

On Friday, February 17th, 2023, The Game Band would post another development update concerning the siesta, notably introducing patch notes.

An Update from The Game Band (2/17/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans,

Thank you so much for your survey responses! This week, as we’ve been working on the web and mobile Blaseball experiences, that feedback has already proved extremely helpful to us. So seriously, thank you. We’re busy going through all your thoughts to make sure we’re on the same page about what fixes we’re prioritizing.

According to you all, the three most important features for us to work on are: Site Navigation (38.5%), Post-game event surfacing (29.6%), and The Feed (29.1%). We've actually been testing Event Surfacing and a reworked Site Nav since the start of this Siesta, and a large majority of other issues, like the frustrating mobile experience and accessibility concerns, are already high priorities for us.

As we move forward and solidify our plans, our team is still working hard on bug fixes and improvements, so we’re going to start including Patch Notes whenever we can in this and future updates.

You’ll hear from us soon about user interviews.

See you next Friday!

February 24, 2023 Announcement

On February 24, 2023, The Game Band posted another development update, this time concerning internal testing of social features and changes in internal processes.

An Update from The Game Band (2/24/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans!

This week has been a lot of testing and prioritizing. We’ve spoken in the past about how excited we are to show off what the design team has planned for this Era, and we’re testing a bunch of it to make sure it’s as functional in execution as it is cool in our brains. Continuing with this theme, our game designers are fleshing out and balancing Era mechanics. We look forward to showing you when the time comes!

We're also testing some Blaseball social features for further down the line: Community staged a company PVP (against ourselves) and asked TGB employees to cause as many problems as possible, in order to test our tools so far. It was very illustrative, and our team members are abundantly creative for making mayhem.

Everyone here, but especially our engineers, were so happy to see your responses to last week's patch notes! We are going to make sure to include them going forward whenever we have them.

Finally, those retrospective conversations we told you about have really come to fruition with big process changes internally, which translates to lots of positive improvements in the longer-term development of Blaseball.

Our path forward is looking a lot clearer, and we should have more concrete info for you very soon.

See you next Friday!

March 3, 2023 Announcement

On March 3, 2023, The Game Band posted another development update, which revealed the return of the Idol Board.

An Update from The Game Band (3/3/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans,

In the last patch notes, we censored out a certain fan-favorite mechanic that's being worked on, and a bunch of you guessed what it is correctly anyways. Idols and Idol Boards are among the first features coming back! They'll be doing some new things, and the test builds are looking great.

We're continuing to work on things based on your feedback. This week, we've been increasing stability, addressing some concerns about font size and the legibility of team colors, continuing our interface update, and finishing up with scoping everything to make sure Blaseball is a more enjoyable experience when we're back.

See you next Friday with more updates!

March 10, 2023 Announcement

On March 10, 2023, The Game Band posted another development update, musing on icons for Modifications and updates to the mobile experience.

An Update from The Game Band (3/10/23)
Hey Blaseball Fans!

We’ve been heads down on finalizing our relaunch plans to ensure it happens as seamlessly as possible. It’s not a fun detail, but it is an essential one!

Much of our work lately would be considered spoilers, but we have been working on some exciting stuff we know Fans have asked about. In particular, we’ve been exploring what it would take to have custom modification icons for players. While we don’t know if it’s something we will be able to do (there are a lot of mods!), the initial exploration has been exciting. Readability on the site has been a topic of conversation as of late, mod icons are just one part of a larger conversation on UI, font, and images.

We’re already seeing a positive impact from those workflow changes we mentioned in previous updates, which means we should have a relaunch plan ready to show you soon, with a timeline for when we're aiming to come back. Our patch notes this week are mostly focused on mobile as we prepare to dive into further site improvements.

See you next Friday!
