Special Event: Blaseball Coffee Cup
November 16, 2020 10:02 AM - Subscribe

I don't quite understand what's been going on during the extended siesta, but soon a mid-siesta Coffee Cup tournament will be held on the Blaseball site. It seems like a one-off All-Star + special guests tournament, with 16 brand-new teams.

There was a trial of some sort as well, but I didn't quite understand that either. Not entirely understanding what's going on is part of the fun, of course.

Here is the Season 11 thread.

If my math is correct, the tournament begins at 5 PM EST today and apparently they're going to do this every Tuesday during Siestas (at least the planned ones).

A one-off is a probably a good idea to keep people's interest during the extended siesta. I hope all (or at least a lot of) the fans they got during the first session come back…

I woke up feeling kinda tired today and then remembered there was blaseball and GOT PUMPED

I don’t know what to do about a team so I’ll just watch them all.

My first favorites, BC Noir, swept out! Let's see how [FOGHORN SOUND] do.

I like the tired/wired mechanic. Unfortunately I'm definitely more on the tired end of that so I don't know if I'll make it to the championships tonight.

No way I'm making to a championship, Pacific Time style, but the half-runs got my attention.

Oh, it seems to be one round of the Coffee Cup each week.

Yeah, pleasant surprise! A nice little blaseball shot.

the thing where we're now on Parker number 5 is a little alarming though

Entirely Fair though, I am sure.

I figure we can just keep this thread as a rolling one we dip into on Tuesdays, yeah?

Sounds good to me. See everyone tomorrow.
