Coffee Cup

From Blaseball Wiki

The Coffee Cup was a 4-round exhibition blaseball tournament that took place between November 17th and December 8th, 2020, during the Grand Siesta between Season β11 and Season β12. Inter Xpresso defeated FWXBC 3 games to 0 to win the Coffee Cup.


Teams with ILB Players

12 of the 16 teams in the Coffee Cup consisted of active Internet League Blaseball players. Players were assigned to teams based on their Coffee Style, with the exception of players whose preferred style was "Anything," who did not have a team and did not participate in the tournament.

The highest-rated pitcher and highest-rated batter of each team became team captains. The remainder of the rosters were determined by their position on the idol board: the eight most-idolized batters and four most-idolized pitchers filled out the remainder of the roster. Any players that did not qualify for the active roster were assigned to that team's shadows.

Guest Teams

In addition to the 12 ILB teams, there were three guest teams sponsored by outside organizations: Society Data Witches, sponsored by the Society for Internet Blaseball Research; the Pandemonium Artists, sponsored by the Blaseball fan artist community; and the Real Game Band, sponsored by The Game Band.

The sixteenth and final Coffee Cup team was BC Noir, which consisted of two players who had not seen active play before: Liquid Friend and Uncle Plasma. Their coffee style was Black, making them the first Blaseball players with Black coffee as their preferred style.

In the duration of the Coffee Cup, the majority of the Real Game Band players became Percolated. Despite beginning the season with 14 players, they ended with only 4. One of these percolated players was Parker MacMillan IIII, which caused the official Blaseball Twitter account to change hands to Parker MacMillan IIIII.

Following the Cup, all players on the Pandemonium Artists, Real Game Band, and Society Data Witches became Idol Immune. The Coffee Cup teams became hidden on the website and were not migrated to post-Beta Blaseball, meaning the teams are now defunct.

While the Coffee Cup was an exhibition tournament, several elements introduced in the Cup became relevant in the Expansion Era. The Cup introduced three new Coffee weather conditions, Coffee, Coffee 2, and Coffee 3s, in Rounds 1, 2, and 3 respectively, each of which added their own unique player modifiers. These weather types persisted into the new era, alongside their accompanying modifiers. Teams also had the option to build Sweetener in their stadiums to make coffee-related weather events more frequent.

All members of Real Game Band began with the Observed modification. This modification became central to the new era when it was revealed that players with Debt could cause players to become Observed. In all types of coffee weather, Observed players then had a chance of becoming Redacted.

Liquid Friend and Uncle Plasma, the players of BC Noir who were introduced for the Coffee Cup, returned in Season β12 as blessings that teams could win to add the players to their teams. The detectives also participated in The Investigation and were revealed to be connected to The Boss.
