Party Time

From Blaseball Wiki

Party Time is a condition, in which Blaseball teams who are mathematically eliminated from playoff contention must constantly party.

In Season 6, the decree called Enhanced Party Time was enacted. Under Enhanced Party Time, any player whose team is eliminated from playoff contention has a chance of "Partying", earning a permanent stat boost to a random stat during any active game for the remainder of the season.

History

"WHEN A TEAM IS MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED THEY ARE IN PARTY TIME. THEY CANNOT STOP PARTYING"

Party Time was first introduced to Blaseball at the end of the Season 2 regular season, when Umpire Sunman commented on the games by describing Party Time[1] :

WHEN A TEAM IS MATHEMATICALLY ELIMINATED THEY ARE IN PARTY TIME.
THEY CANNOT STOP PARTYING

During the end of the Season 4 regular season, The Commissioner tweeted: [2]

As the race for the postseason tightens, some clarification for new fans:
In Internet League Blaseball, teams that are eliminated from playoff contention immediately enter #PARTYTIME.
They can never stop.

Since then it has become tradition for the Commissioner to announce when teams have reached #Partytime, with the teams gaining a 🎉 emoji on the standings page from Season 17 onward. Season 17 also marked the reveal of League-wide modifications, of which Party Time was one.

Mild Low division on Season 17, Day 95.

Enhanced Party Time

In the Season 6 Election, Enhanced Party Time was offered as one of three possible Decrees the community could vote on to go into effect, alongside the following:

  • Hot Sauce Feel the Heat. Makes a random player on each team Spicy.
  • New Kids Incinerate the least Idolized player on every team.

Enhanced Party Time passed with 222,527 Votes, a decisive 77% of all Decree Votes, and the following message:

  • THE PARTY RAGES
  • BISCAYNE BAY SET ALIGHT
  • INVITING LIFE

With the passing of the Decree, the Miami Dale were also granted the Life of the Party Modification.

From Season 7 onward, teams who were mathematically eliminated would gain the Party Time modification until the season's end[3].

The final Party that occurred as a result of a team being in Party Time occurred on Season 23, Day 99, when Breckenridge Jazz Hands batter Baby Doyle partied at the bottom of the 9th after being shamed by the Mexico City Wild Wings.

Nullification

Party Time was eventually nullified on Season 24, Day 64, by Jonathan Catalina of the San Francisco Lovers.

Due to the Nullification of Internet League Blaseball, no teams reached Party Time in the latter half of Season 24, meaning players were only able to Party thanks to other Modifications. In the Earlseason, parties were possible from Hotel Motels and Afterparty. The final Parties before Party Time was nullified took place on Day 25, with Alexander Horne of the San Francisco Lovers stealing home in the eighth and converting the run into a Party. Good Riddance allowed the Charleston Shoe Thieves to Party even after Party Time was nullified, first on Day 72 and later on Day 81.

Party Time Records

Speedruns

Beginning in Season 5 when the LA Unlimited Tacos broke the record for the fastest team to be mathematically eliminated from the postseason, it became common to track the "speedrun record" for Party Time.

Season 5

The Unlimited Tacos saw an especially terrible Season 5, ending the regular season with a record of 23 Wins to 76 Losses. This resulted in the Tacos achieving Party Time by Day 78 (Thursday, September 3), the fastest of any team by far to date. Many Tacos fans characterized this as a "speedrun," elevating the team's failure at Blaseball into a resounding success among the community. The Blaseball Beat later wrote of the event: "the fan-favorite Unlimited Tacos captured hearts and minds with a historic Regular Season Speed Run, reaching #PARTYTIME faster than any team ever before."[4]

Season 7

The Boston Flowers saw an unfortunate Season 7 record, achieving Party Time by Day 76 (Thursday, September 17) — beating the Unlimited Tacos record by two games.

Season 9

After the unfortunate shelling of star batter York Silk, the Hawai'i Fridays set a new record in Season 9, entering Enhanced Party Time on Day 73 (Thursday, October 8) with a record of 17 Wins to 56 Losses at the time of entry. After ending the season with a 21-78 record, the Fridays were then chosen via Wild Card to be the fifth seed in the Season 9 Playoffs for the Mild League.

Season 11

Starting off their ILB careers with a bang, the Tokyo Lift tied the Hawai'i Fridays' speedrun record in their first season, entering Enhanced Party Time on Day 73. The speed at which the team was able to enter Party Time is largely attributed to the Black Hole and Sun 2 weather effects. This has resulted in some requestsby whom? to distinguish between the glitchless[5] speedruns of previous seasons and the Lift's Any% speedrun.

Season 12

The Tokyo Lift looked to clinch the speedrun again in Season 12, entering Enhanced Party Time on Day 83, the earliest out of all teams that competed during the season. They would go on to party a mere 5 times, mirroring the Magic's Season 8 run. However, the arrival of three new expansion teams (the Atlantis Georgias, Core Mechanics, and Ohio Worms) as well as the return of the Baltimore Crabs during the events of Latesiesta meant that all four teams were automatically eliminated from playoff contention and thus in party time[6]. As a result, the four teams have been acknowledged as the joint-holders of the Wrong Warp Party Time Speedrun.

Season 13

In their first recorded season of Blaseball as part of the ILB, the Ohio Worms cleanly beat the previous record held by the Fridays and the Lift, entering Enhanced Party Time in just 67 days, with an impressive single digit win count of 8 and a record of 14-53. This makes the Worms the undisputed holders of the Party Time Speedrun record, even beating their timing set the previous season when they were introduced to the league.

Other Events

Season 8 Tie

The end of Season 8 saw a historic race for the bottom, as both the Yellowstone Magic and the Kansas City Breath Mints gave up their hopes of reaching the playoffs and instead competed to be the first to reach Enhanced Party Time. At the end of Day 83, thanks to a combination of Magic losing to Pies, Mints losing to Garages, and the Steaks winning their own game, both teams were mathematically eliminated within 30 seconds of each other. The Yellowstone Magic proceeded to party only 5 times in the remaining 15 games, and ended the season with a 29-70 record.

Season 10 Tie

Season 10 saw the Hellmouth Sunbeams tie the defending champions the Hawai'i Fridays, with both teams entering Enhanced Party Time on Day 81. The Beams would go on to be selected as the Wild Card for the Wild League in the Season 10 playoffs.

Party Time Entry

Attempts to record the Party Time Entry for teams before Season 12 are ongoing. If you would like to help, reach out on the Discussion Pages
Note that if a team is selected by Wild Cards they enter Party Time twice, once in the regular season, and once in the postseason.

As of Season 20, Teams can be pulled out of Party Time when entering the Underbracket, and as such enter Party Time twice as well.

Trivia

  • The Glossary defines Party Time as "A non-physical concept entered into when a team is mathematically eliminated from the Postseason, during which they may occasionally receive permanent stat boosts during games." and defines Partying as "A non-physical concept that has the potential of becoming a physical concept."
  • Due to the PsychoAcoustics Modification, it is possible for teams to Echo the Partytime modification and party before they are eliminated from the Post Season.
  • Other ways for players to Party include modifications such as Good Riddance and Afterparty, the Hotel Motel Ballpark Renovation.
  • Jonathan Catalina, who scored the tenth run which nullified Party Time on Day 64, was at bat (and hit a ground out) when Alexander Horne Partied the final pre-nullification Party.
