Notable Events

End of the Discipline Era

After a full nine seasons under the rulings of The Forbidden Book, Season 10 marked the end of the tyranny of The Shelled One. The subtitle changed to Peace & Prosperity to signal the start of a new age.

Rise in Violence

See the main article on this topic: Idols#Season_10
On the evening of Thursday, October 15th, 2020, Baltimore Crabs began idolizing Tillman Henderson, who was recently incinerated, as an experiment. However, upon reaching Slot 18, which was marked with a Blooddrain icon, both the icon and the numerical marker lit up in a deep blue, much like the appearance of the Hall of Flame and speeches from The Monitor. Fans quickly mobilized to idolize more incinerated players, and by Day 97, six players had occupied all six weather icons, in order: Caligula Lotus, Landry Violence, Workman Gloom, Sebastian Telephone, Tillman Henderson, and Randall Marijuana. Additionally, fans placed Jaylen Hotdogfingers in slot 14, based on tweets from The Microphone repeatedly calling out to Jaylen. As usual, fans expected an event to be triggered at the end of Day 99.

However, as Day 99 came to an end, a late minute shift in the idol board led to unpredictable results. In a twist, Tillman Henderson came back to life to join the Charleston Shoe Thieves, while Jaylen Hotdogfingers was forced back into the Void, taking Henderson's position on the board in the Hall of Flame. Henderson gained the modification Returned, and is now the second player to have returned to active play from incineration. Hotdogfingers gained the new modification Fliickerrriiing, the effect of which was unknown at the time it was granted.

Lotus, Violence, and Gloom received the new season-based modifications, Friend of Crows, Fire Eater, and Siphon, respectively. Meanwhile, last minute shifts caused Thomas Dracaena to gain Siphon, and Hahn Fox to gain Friend of Crows.

The Death of the Shelled One

See the main article on this topic: Day X#Season 10

As in the end of Season 9, The Shelled One and THE SHELLED ONE'S PODS arrived to wage war on the League, this time against the Season 10 Champions, the Baltimore Crabs. In a show of absolute strength, the PODS defeated the Crabs in a single hit from Wyatt Quitter. Then, in a final gambit, The Microphone cashed in its deal, and the Hall Stars, a team composed of the 14 most beloved players in the Hall of Flame, arrived to challenge the Shelled One on behalf of the League.

After a full nine innings, Dominic Marijuana hit the final blow to win the game. The Monitor attacked and ate the Shelled One, claiming it was kinda bland, thus ending the Discipline Era.

Ascension of the Baltimore Crabs

See the main article on this topic: Ascension#Crabs_Ascend

Following a rematch with the Charleston Shoe Thieves in the Internet Series, the Baltimore Crabs became the first team in Internet League Blaseball history to win three championships, qualifying them for Ascension, a rule in The Book of Blaseball that states "If a team wins three championships, they, and Blaseball, shall ascend."

After winning against the Shoe Thieves -- and being defeated by THE SHELLED ONE'S PODS in Day X -- the Crabs were said to have been "Called Up" into the Big Leagues, which took them out of their place in the Wild League, to be replaced by Tokyo Lift, the first new team in ILB history. Shortly into Season 11, a new element appeared on the Blaseball Bulletin called Telescope, which tracks the scoring of the Crabs in the big leagues, but does not display the moment to moment gameplay.

The Boss Arrives

See the main article on this topic: Boss

Following the defeat of The Shelled One, The Monitor told fans that Boss is on her way. The next day, Boss arrived to announce that Blaseball was under new ownership, as well as the promotion of The Commissioner to CEO of Internet League Blaseball. She announced that there would be a Grand Siesta following Season 11, and made repeated claims that Blaseball was unfair and that the Future was in Fair Play.
