I officially hate this and everything it represents now
I'm just mad that now I don't have care about them. What am I supposed to do for a month now???
My team got knocked out day 2 and I still look forward to them!
And yet I'm still pissed off we were eliminated day two.
root against the Yankees?
Gotta keep on truckin i guess
The unifying theory of "fuck that guy" keeps me going.
It would have been nice to make it further, but also I think about how stressful the final 5 is going to be once we get there.
Hope the Seahawks are good again and the Sounders make a deep playoff run?
Well the good news is the Seahawks ARE good again. Tariq Woolen is a beast.
I was you about 30 sec in
How could they do this to America's team?
Team Chaos gets their first true victory today
IT'S THE CURSE OF >!TEOSCAR HERNANDEZ!<
This is super fun! Does the W-L record that’s displayed at the end come from anywhere in particular, or do you just assign a reasonable “25th best record” or whatever?
I mostly just chose something reasonable. I basically averaged the wins from each position league wide (25th in the league wins on average x number of games) then chose something around there and made sure the wins league wide added to 2430. That way the W/L records could occur irl
We'll see y'all again in 2043
You had a good year, and nobody can take that away from you. But the marbles have spoken.
I love you baby girl but your comment spoiled it for me. It’s my own fault but god damn Reddit mobile putting the comments directly below the video when I click in to the post.
Got to get Reddit is fun
There is zero reason to use the "official" app, there's a million better third-party apps.
WHAT HAPPENED SEATTLE MARINERS???
After Judge goes to SF, the Yankees buy all their good talent.
J-Rod and Castillo would be a nice consolation prize for losing out on Judge. Thanks Mariners!
HOW DID YOU LOSE THE MARBLE RACE???
I love how there is a large chunk of time where its only the Mariners on the screen.
Seattle fans have been through enough, man.
I kept thinking, come on, there's 30 seconds left, surely someone comes in. I had given up any notion that they'd be overtaken right around 10 seconds before the end.

You can do a parlay for the bottom 6 teams in the league?
You can parlay anything at the right place.
Thanks for the free mattress
You can parlay anything if you believe in yourself enough.
I'm should parlay the top 30 when this is done. I bet a 10 dollar bet becomes like 10k
If you could parlay the actual place of every team one through 30 and get it correct, that'd have to be the biggest payout of all time.
if you parlayed all 30 team records for $10 and won youd probably own the casino after you’re paid lol
MLB LET THIS MAN RUN THE DRAFT ORDER SELECTION

I’m guessing the records are just made up and not based on anything from the races…right?
They're based on the marble race results
It’s some pretty high education marblemetrics
They said above they take the average of those records and then make sure they add up to the proper amount of games played.
This has become the highlight of my day.
Not sure what that says about me and my life, but here we are.
My spouse walked into my office to see what I was doing, saw I was smiling, and immediately was like, "Oh, did the marble race drop?"
It's dark in the offseason.
You are the living embodiment of “HEY BABE, NEW MARBLE RACE DROPPED!”
Fuckin love it.
I'm not ashamed.
I was explaining the marble race to my wife last night. She was not amused.
Well of course not, it's a very serious thing!
She wasn't taking notes. Not sure if she was taking it seriously.
No idea how these marble race posts don't get 3k+ upvotes for visibility. This is peak offseason entertainment.
Well this is just the regular season. OP indicated that they might do the playoffs.
No team was even threatening their spot.
They really wanted that one.
The Yankees were really out ahead for a moment, and then I thought the Angles marble was going to save us for a second there — but our little marble sped through the final obstacles 😂🤣
The last few obstacles could barely even be called that, they're the type that are only interesting at the start where all the marbles are mashing against each other.
Yeah the G is always a really good “end” one cus thats hard to get through and can give marbles time to catch up. Same with the bricks.
I got way too excited seeing the Yankees lead for a sec
All I could think was
“They resigned Aaron judge.”
“What did it cost?”
No such thing as too excited when it comes to the marble races.
Your fate has been sealed. The marbles have spoketh
Turns out Erik Swanson was actually worth 22 WAR
This is stupid and I'm not having fun anymore
Join the club
Man they ran away with that.
Props to OP for putting the brick section at the very beginning this time. That was far more satisfying than having two marbles slowly chip away at it.
Appreciate the props, but as I mentioned in a comment on a previous part, all the courses are random, so I really didn't get a say in it. Personally, I actually prefer the bricks closer to the end. Since it takes a while for a couple marbles to punch through, it evens up the playing field and make for an exciting finish!
Have there been particular sections that haven't shown up yet purely due to random chance?
Maybe 1 or 2, but I'm always getting more to increase the variability between simulations
>!Teoscar!< bout to ruin all the chemistry
They may never dance again.
Well… RIP the Mariners because I believe this is pure fact
That was a blowout.
Well winning is the opposite in this case. Maybe it should be called a suckup?
Suck up and blow out… we are still talking about marble racing right?
Oh, wait, I should fix my comment. I meant suck-in. It's too late though.
What the fuck is this bullshit
At least it's the first perfect square position taken.
Fuck this. 21 more years until the playoffs.
Bro I had a heart attack for a hot second, the possibility of being eliminated is now all too real. ^(mom come get me I'm scared)
I DO NOT LIKE THIS ANYMORE
Yesterday: this is awesome! Today: this is stupid.
Someone get Adam Silver on the phone and make this the new lottery format. But don’t tell anyone the rules. Let all the fanbases watch the first drop and get super excited, only for the first team to cross the finish line get 14th place.
I used to be fully onboard, Fuck this shit.
Freaking at first. So fucking cool man!!!
Had me in the first half, not gonna lie
That’s just the yankee’s regular slow start and fans are pressing the panic button on WFAN before the playoff push
That multiple windmill section really pisses me off more than it should lol
Same. I'm sure it has nothing to do with what team was leading heading into it, and got stuck.
There are too many red A's in the field and it makes me shit bricks when I see the Angels or Diamondbacks come flying in
I've also learned the sideways-Cardinals logo resembles a red 'A', at speed......
Pouring out an ipa for our Vedder Cup bros
Things that induce my anxiety:
-that drowning music from Sonic
-thinking of October 2011
-seeing the Rangers ball lead the pack
I don’t like this game anymore
When the balls are doing the breakout thing, it makes me think of koi fighting over a single morsel of food.
They won the race. But at what cost.
The Seattle playoff curse continues
What a shot to the heart for M’s fans after this season…
So is the last team standing declared automatic champion? Is there a playoff system involved based on standings after day 30?
This is just the regular season. I'll be doing something for the hypothetical playoffs as well!
Do we still have a shot at making the hypothetical playoffs
Since 3 AL teams finished lower than the Mariners (Bos,Chw, and Kc), they will finish 9th in the AL wildcard race
Do 9 wild card teams make the playoffs in the AL?
Give the higher seed team more balls and flip the rules to first one wins. With all the possibilities for the W-L included on at least one ball.
Like to think dipoto has been sitting at his desk waiting for this to drop and just crumpling up all his potential trade analysis and starting over.
Babe, new marble race just dropped
I remember this being a lot more fun before
Teoscar did this.
I was so scared. 😭😇
I like this result!
Man the Mariners were taking absolutely no prisoners that run. Got in front and stayed in front.
Mariners really ran away with that one.
Having said that, the absolute fear the was instilled seeing the Angels come on screen with only 20 seconds left was genuinely terrifying
Today it seemed like all of the obstacles that normally are difficult for a marble to get through & where those last second passes normally happen were at the beginning, which was unfortunate for us Mariners. If only one of those were at the end of we had better wheel luck then maybe it would have been a close race at the end.
Or maybe this is your guy's revenge for Julio beating Mike Trout in MVP voting after years of Mariners fans saying "Fuck Mike Trout"./j
Me before fully reading the title: I approve of this 100% scientific method
Me after seeing the pop up and fully reading the title: This is a load of barnacles
And just like that I find this series no fun and stupid
They regressed! I knew it!
That said, Angels flirted with making it close for a brief second there.
The terror I felt when I saw us creeping behind them
Pfh, looks like that Julio signing was for nothing.
Man, who knew that trading Swanson for Hernandez would hurt them so badly?!
It's taken until these posts for me to see how close the new Guardians logo is to Chief Wahoo when it's shrunk down like that.
SMH all because Jerry didn’t sign a FA SS.
Should’ve re-signed Frazier. He was the key to it all.
I know this is stupid and doesn’t mean a shit thing, but man I got nervous when the Giants marble was out in front at the beginning
Oh thank God
This has to be the fastest outcome yet ya?
This is fucking *rigged*
Now I know how the Braves fans feel at the beginning of every race.
What no Kyle Lewis does to a mfer
Lol the mariners fans comments are so funny. I mean I’m sorry and all and it’s such a shame I really enjoyed y’all’s season, but y’all are making me chuckle
I am no longer believing :(
We should unfade flairs only so we can refade them when picked by the marbles
Reds are going to be #1. Watch out!
The way my heart started POUNDING when the Angels dropped in above the Mariners
Is it weird that I want my Braves to come out on top in this stupid series of posts even more than I want an actual World Series?
These balls were smart until just now
Yea I thought this was cool yesterday. Now it can fuck off
Not today satan
I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first five
Mariners noooooo, what happened :(
STILL NOT SURPRISED!
Good. Go Jays
Hate to see it
I just started following this a couple days ago, does someone wanna give me a recap
Marlins last, then White Sox, Red Sox, Royals, and Nationals.
What app or website is this? Where can I recreate this?
What app/software is this?
As is tradition.
I was nervous there for a minute
I appreciate the variety of courses.
Mariners Marble was on a mission
Correlation to reality: 0.
These marble races make me think I might need glasses in my 30s :( the logos are so small
What do these stupid marbles know anyway?
Just our luck to be the team that went through the most different sections the fastest (or at least it felt that way). I've never seen a team go through the colored wheel section that easily
Looks fine to me
Scott Servais, enraged he didn’t win MOTY, purposely tanks the 2023 season
Well at least they broke the streak this year
Hey OP, what app are you using to run this simulation? Would love to run something similar for soccer (giving credits to you, of course :))
Well it was fun while it lasted
What kind of weird marble race sim is this? The part where it just starts ignoring physics is hilarious.
For a few shining seconds, the Yankees and Braves were in the lead, and I felt happiness in my heart until RNG came and ruined it. My day is ruined.
Is there a way to place bets on this? Asking for a friend.
I feel like I haven’t seen the ‘stros anywhere in these…
What a fall from grace
The breakout section goes a lot faster when it isn't just 2 or 3 teams doing all the work
