    I'm always greatly disappointed in any of the blue colored teams. They haven't gotten up on the stairs for a while.

    I always call the O'Rangers the record snatchers, whenever there's a record remotely up for grabs and someone sets a new one, they'll set it the best. Been watching old MLs and the records change due to the event setups changing, the O'Rangers are so consistently good at them though lol. Was happy to see how well they performed in Half-Pipe - that's traditionally an event my Snowballs do well in, but in their absence I was cheering for my secondaries.

    (I'm a big multiteamer but fairly solidified at this point after watching all the MLs, love the Snowballs, Pinkies, Midnight Wisps, Balls of Chaos, Green Ducks, O'Rangers, maybe in that order. It's pretty organic for me to multi because of how good the lore is tho, I think basically every team has something likable except maybe the Savage Speeders, who are really good but also very boring just imho, all the other teams with similar level of skill have been through stuff. Also cheer for Crazy Cats Eyes and Raspberry Racers sometimes but they don't really need my help LOL)

    Looking forward to funnels in a few days, that's probably my favourite single event type tbh and got me hooked

    Also watched the Marbula One races (not the qualifiers, although they sounded like they were pretty good) and enjoyed them very much, for those who are into the racing events and marble run aspects. I initially found this channel because of a viral Sand Rally and the commentator is an F1 diehard, so you can really tell the Marbula One is basically a fulfilment of his life dreams or something

    I believe there are official stickers? They started putting merch plugs in at some point

    Hopefully I'm allowed to link this: https://store.dftba.com/collections/...aos-team-decal

    (And, yes, the Balls of Chaos are amazing - visually, their names, and just the sheer unpredictableness, rowdiness, and hilarity they bring to most events. They really live up to their team name and I'm here for it)

    Oooooo Rangers!
    Just have great and simple chant.

    Would be my favourite team if not for my totally reasonable hate for the dutch.

    Watched the 2016 marblelymics the other day and fell in love with team momo.

    For a moment I was in shock because some of my favourite events are not in your list.

    But after checking the wiki .. 10 events are still unkown.

    There is hope to see some of the greatest events of marble history to comeback.

    Updated the OP to make that more clear. To you and anyone else, let me know if you think something should be added to the OP.

    The moves at the end by Kinnowin to stay in the last funnel, and podium were insane. So close to the gold, and easily the best overall performance in the event.

    I was really impressed by the O'Rangers' performance in this event. They were coming last (in the bad way) in the qualifiers AND I believe the finals, and recovered really well. Truly earned. They're an experienced team and have continually shown overall that they have a lot of grit and good strategy as well as raw athleticism, which is something that sets them apart from the other well-performing/veteran teams to me.

    But, well, cheering for the teams I do, this may have been the most emotionally impactful thing in the entire ML so far. Just a complete rollercoaster. Including anything that's happened to Team Momo :P My poor Ducks. (Although this did improve our standing a lot.)

    Not sure if the new funnels improved or took away from the event ultimately after having seen more funnel events since I watched the qualifiers. The small funnels maximise the collisions that cause positions to change, whereas the angled/flat alternating funnels can escalate existing things while still somehow dragging it out. But we saw some really wild spinning from the Balls of Chaos and Crazy Cats' Eyes in the green funnels, so I'm divided.

    Also, Minty Maniacs roiding. (Also, it continually disappoints me that funnels aren't the one event Savage Speeders suck at!)

    I feel like Momo is a good team that can't catch a break.

    I really like the green funnels. They add a good twist and allow for some recovery if you get a bad start (although I may be biased).

    O'rangers took the all time ML point lead today, 498 to the Savage Speeders 496

    Kinnowin I think has the most individual medals and points now as well which is pretty impressive. Even though we only got silver it was a good day for the O'rangers!

    Minty Maniacs also the first team to podium in 3 consecutive events too. They're going nuts right now.

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO'rangers!!!

    Just got caught up and glad to see my boys in orange doing so well, only behind the behemoth that is the Minty Maniacs this season. I guess not qualifying for the 2019 games really was a wake up call for them, cause whatever work they've been putting in in practice is clearly working.

    As a Momo fan, you couldn't be referring to collision could you? They did recently bring it back for the Cravendale Cup, though this time without fidget spinners (I'd have to imagine for the safety of the competitors after the last incident).

    Hell yeah. I learned that the O'rangers home city is Orlango, a fictional city in the southeastern US, one letter off of Orlando which is a short drive away. They're my hometown team and there's nothing anyone can say to convince me otherwise.

Role of the Day
Evil Mastermind

The Evil Mastermind is an independently aligned role who can potentially perform one of two night actions each night. If the Evil Mastermind does not already have a living Evil Minion, they can choose to recruit one (i.e. convert a player to share the same win condition as well as private communication privileges). If the Evil Mastermind does have an Evil Minion, they or their Evil Minion can kill someone. The Evil Mastermind shares the same win condition as a Serial Killer or a Cult.
