Season 4: Can I give you some Feedback?
Updated: Oct 29, 2020
No blessings? No problems.
Powered by a powerful batting lineup that only grew in strength over the run of the season, the Mills lead the Chaotic Good throughout the season, finishing in first with a 58-41 record.
Despite quickly becoming a fan favorite over the Extended Siesta, Alyssa Harrell departed in a Feedback swap on Day 15, trading teams with the Yellowstone Magic's Penelope Mathews. While many Millennials fans were heartbroken to hear of Alyssa's departure, some seemed confused and were unclear any player by that name ever played for the team. Mathews was quickly adopted by the Mills Nation as "Lucky Penny".
In a Day 43 game against the Charleston Shoe Thieves, Sandie Turner hit a single. Ey then completed a "Millennials Home Run" by sequentially stealing second base, third base, and finally home. In the aftermath, the Commissioner announced that Sandie had found the Three-Blood Blagonball. It was the first Blagonball to be discovered by a player.
On Day 83 against the Charleston Shoe Thieves, another feedback swap occurred, seeing Richardson Games change places with Ren Hunter. Fans were conflicted, simultaneously happy to acquire another dominant batter, sad about losing Games, and hopeful that "Dickson" could make amends with his estranged husband, Cornelius Games.
Opening the playoffs, the Millennials won three straight to send off the Dallas Steaks 3-1.
In the Chaotic finals, the New York Millennials faced the Chicago Firefighters. On Day 108, the Mills were facing elimination, trailing two games to one in the series. Despite being significant underdogs and facing Axel Trololol on the mound, the Mills held the scoreline to 2-2 entering the ninth inning.
Leading off, Conrad Vaughan hit a double and quickly stole third, setting up the go-ahead run. Thomas Dracaena stepped to the plate.
Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser.
Time stopped on the Immaterial Plane.
For what was later determined to last twenty-four minutes on the Material Plane, Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser.
As The Commissioner released a statement reading simply "uh", Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser.
As feedback was detected (although no player swaps occurred), Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser.
As unsubstantiated reports came in of an umpire malfunctioning at a watch party, Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser.
Eventually, after a possibly infinite number of Thomas Dracaenas hit a possibly infinite number of ground outs to a possibly infinite number of Edric Tossers, Schneider Bendie approached the plate. After quietly cursing space-time, capitalism and the ground, Bendie connected, sending Vaughan home and giving the Mills the lead. Ren Hunter followed with another hit, bringing Bendie home and bumping the scoreline to 4-2.
Fynn Doyle proceeded to close the game with no runs given up, sealing a storybook 4-2 Millennials victory. NY would proceed to win the series in Game 5 and advance to the Internet Series.
In the finale, the Millennials sought revenge against Season 3 champions Hades Tigers, but were swept in three straight matches. The second-straight second-place finish lead Millennials fans to begin talking up the chance of bscension. While ascension was spelled out in The Book as a result of winning three championships, no similar language has been found relating to repeat performances as the runners-up.
The Millennials were impacted by the "Targeted Shame" Decree as part of the Season 4 election. They again received no blessings, but both Wesley Dudley and Fynn Doyle were impacted by the "Alternate Reality" decree.
