In Game Effect
When any game entered Extra Innings, a message appeared in the game's feed proclaiming that "Sun 30 smiled upon" both teams, and they both gained an additional Win.
Outside of Sun 2 and Black Hole weather, this was also the first mechanic introduced to the game to have a significant potential effect on the number of Wins in the standings. Fans were quick to attempt to gauge the effects of the available decrees on team's post-season chances, though for the most part it was difficult to say and often up to chance.
On Day 43, Sandie Turner of the New York Millennials nullified Sun 30 by scoring ten runs under the Black Hole (Black Hole).
Despite Sun 30's Nullification, fans were surprised to see that two minutes later as the Carolina Queens and Oxford Paws entered extra innings they were both given a feed message that Sun 30 smiled upon them, and granted their extra win as usual. Two additional games on Day 43 gave the same message, and in fact Sun 30 continued to hand out extra wins until Day 48, before finally burning out.
