The Hall of Flame was introduced at the end of the Season β7 elections in a new tab on the Blaseball website. The Hall was introduced in a message from The Monitor, where it asked if fans "want[ed] to see your friends?" Fans can view the profiles of incinerated players and pay tribute in the form of peanuts. It is unknown at this time what the effect of paying tribute is.
Jaylen Hotdogfingers' Debted modification changed to Refinanced Debt at the end of Season 7 due to a deal involving the Microphone. Instead of causing the Unstable modification, players hit with Hotdogfingers' pitches now acquire the Flickering modification, which increases their chances of being caught in the Feedback during Feedback weather. On Day 5, Marquez Clark became the first player to become Flickering. On Day 21, Nolanestophia Patterson became the first player to swap teams due to the Flickering modification.
At the start of Season 8, the Idol leaderboard featured three Feedback microphone icons attached to the 6th, 11th, and 18th place rankings. At the end of the regular season, fans placed Jaylen Hotdogfingers, NaN, and Sixpack Dogwalker in these slots after following clues from The Microphone. After appearances byThe Shelled One and The Monitor, the three idolized players gained a permanent version of the Flickering modification. NaN and Dogwalker also gained the permanent Receiver modification. Immediately after receiving the Receiver modification, the pregame rituals of NaN and Dogwalker changed three times in rapid succession:
it is Wyatt
I have a plan
Any information about the plan is currently unknown, but fans are monitoring NaN and Dogwalker for more messages from Wyatt Mason.
Declaration of Fourth Strike
See the main article on this topic: The Shelled One
