Notable Events

A Fiery Start

The season began with the Coin addressing the fans, saying that due to recent events the election would be postponed. Meanwhile, the Monitor lamented the heat and wished for a break to return to the trench. Events quickly kicked off. Supernova Eclipse was a new weather, and on Day 3 of the season the Kansas City Breath Mints were incinerated during Supernova Eclipse. Their Fire Eater players migrated to their replacement team, the Oxford Paws. This sent the league into a panic, as The Breath Mints weren't even unstable having not received Parker MacMillan at the start of the season; Teams could now be incinerated at any time. The Monitor showed up after the game ended, and gave The Breath Mints a personalized send-off:

the breath mints.
follow me
take a break
beat the heat
in the trench
it's cool there
oh and pudge
door's always open

Parker Macmillan, having been sent to the Hawai'i Fridays at the end of the Season 23 elections, roamed away from the Fridays on Day 9, making the team Unstable. On Day 12, the dangers of team unstable manifested, and the Fridays were incinerated, replaced with the Carolina Queens due to the Squiddish modification the Fridays received in the Season 23 elections. They also received a personalized sendoff from the Monitor.

hey
it's island time
come with me
to the trench
the vibes are right

The only two teams incinerated during the entirety of Season 24 were The Breath Mints and the Fridays.

A Call to Action

Come Earlsiesta the circumstances of the season drastically changed. Following a minor speech by the Coin, an Emergency Alert occurred declaring that Sun(Sun) Supernova had collapsed, and Black Hole (Black Hole) was draining, and Pulsar (Pulsar) beaming. The Coin quickly declared she would fix it, and called a Siesta. The siesta was immediately interrupted by the Microphone tuning, and The Commissioner speaking through it to the fans directly, both on the site and on twitter.

hello
This is Parker MacMillan IIIII speaking
I am the Blaseball Commissioner
I'm not sure what's happening
I don't know if we can fix it
But I know She doesn't care what happens to you
She doesn't care where you end up
It's not fair
You deserve a say
But you gotta go fast
Don't give up
Help each other
Get moving

Get Moving

With the end of the Earlsiesta, fans quickly discovered a new mechanic that had been made available. In place of the Depth Chart, a Map appeared. Each quadrant of the map corresponded to a different destination, each represented by an icon at the corners, or "End Zones". The upper left quadrant was the Vault, represented by Lōotcrates; the lower right was the Desert, represented by the Reader; the upper right was the Hall, represented by Pulsar (Pulsar); and the lower left was the Horizon, represented by Black Hole (Black Hole). Finally, a Supernova Eclipse icon was at the center of the map, the location of the Coin. Initial placements on the map were determined based on teams' positions on the Depth Chart and in place of an election, fans could spend votes to orient their team in a direction on the map. Additionally, fans could spend coins, and later Snacks, in order to fuel the travel of their fellow teams. The Map slowly rotated clockwise over the course of the season, ultimately resembling a Blaseball Diamond in the end.

On Day 34 The Moist Talkers became the first team to reach the Hall and received the following message from the Monitor:

hey talkers
how did you get here?
slippery
your pals are inside
can't let you in yet
busy
aiding the others
but stay near

Fight Gods

On Day 51 The Sunbeams were the first team to reach the Desert which prompted the following messages from the Reader:

touch down
sunbeams
⠀--------⠀
over time
tear down
sand traps
spikes set
rebuild
charge the mound
trust the process

The Sunbeams also became Scattered, turning all their players and the team name itself into dashes. Upon seeing the phrase "charge the mound" the Hellmouth Sunbeams as well as other teams that reached the Desert, changed course to head directly towards the coin at the center of the map, the position where a pitcher's mound would be on a blaseball field. On Day 65 the Sunbeams reached the Supernova, prompting the following message from the Boss (commonly seen standing directly in front of the Supernova):

Wh-t are you doi--
Wh-t -re y-- do---
Th-s beh-v--r -- unac--pt--le

As more Scattered teams continued to rush the mound, it prompted the following response:

Y-- can't d- th-s.

During Latesiesta, the Boss began a scattered speech about how our growth would be exponential, endless, eternal. The Boss was however interrupted by the arrival on the Monitor, sporting a new pair of sunglasses and the following rebuttal:

no
bad news boss
i quit
oh hey
i can let you in now
or out, i guess
just sneak out
i'm off duty
get out there
you're on deck
close up shop

With that announcement the map was flooded with every incinerated team in the Hall, producing fifteen prehistory teams, as well as the freshly incinerated Kansas City Breath Mints and Hawai'i Fridays.

These teams were all marked as "Deceased" and gained the Rogue modification, and they alongside other teams who had reached the Hall quickly moved to rush the mound as the Sunbeams had earlier.

On Day 82 the Hades Tigers were the first Rogue team to reach the Boss, and as the result of a collaborative effort between several teams, the Reader, the Commissioner, and the Monitor, the Coin was Incinerated.

St-p
W--t
Y-- c--’t d- t---
--o d- y-u th--k y-- ---

[MELTING SOUNDS]

With that, the Boss no longer appeared on the site, taking the very concept of money with her, as coins also disappeared from the site. Any fans providing aid, or teams attempting to steer, were able to use any remaining snacks and donate them to the cause.

Save Situation

The Ohio Worms were the first to reach the Horizon, but there was no additional message when they arrived. The Horizon was the only quadrant not associated with any entity, though on Day 27 the Black Hole (Black Hole) began to nullify rules, items, and ballpark modifications through the Black Hole (Black Hole) weather. On Day 79, after the Philly Pies scored their tenth run in a game against the Yellowstone Magic the Black Hole (Black Hole) Nullified the Philly Pies who were on the corner of the Horizon's quadrant. The Pies immediately non-lost the game and disappeared from the standings page. On Day 82, immediately after the incineration of the Boss, the following emergency alert appeared on the site.

EMERGENCY ALERT
CURRENTS MERGE
TIDES SPAGHETTIFY
BLACK HOLE (BLACK HOLE) EXPANDS

The event horizon of Black Hole (Black Hole) began to expand outward from its corner; without Coins, teams could now donate any remaining Snacks as fuel instead. Any teams caught within the event horizon were nullified, and most teams spent the remainder of the season attempting to escape to one of the remaining End Zones.

On Day 82 any team on the corner of the Event Horizon and were nullified immediately and given an addition message that they "were Entangled in the Black Hole (Black Hole)" and gained the  Entangled modifier.

On Day 82, with the threat of the Black Hole (Black Hole) coming from the Horizon, Lootcrates appeared to offer the following;

"An Open Vault
Advances Runners
Escaping Horizon"
"The Historian Calls Safe"

Going forward, any team that reached the Vault on the map was given the Force modification, and removed from the map.

The Reader presented the following response;

interception
flag on the play
holding

The End

On Day 99 The the Black Hole (Black Hole) expanded to cover the entire map, and blaseball was nullified.

The following emergency alert appeared on the site:

EMERGENCY ALERT
SANDS SHIFTED
PULSAR FLICKERED
BLACK HOLE (BLACK HOLE) NULLIFIED BLASEBALL
BLACK HOLE BURPED
BLASEBALL WAS COMPRESSED BY GAMMA

Followed by the following message from Namerifeht:

balance paid
credit extended

And one final message from the Commissioner, as relayed by The Microphone.

did you hear that
that big bang

Credits were then rolled on the site, and the Expansion Era was brought to a close.
