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, which means that any player whose team is eliminated from playoff contention has a chance of "Partying" and earning a permanent stat boost to a random stat during any active game for the remainder of the season. This typically means that the lowest ranked teams experience general improvements to their team during the last 10-20 games of the regular season.
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."
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.
Season 5 Speedrun
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."
Season 7 Speedrun
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. This was the first season under the effects of the Enhanced Party Time decree that gives teams in Party Time a chance at receiving permanent player stat boosts, which makes an early Party Time strategically advantageous.
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 9 Speedrun
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 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.
Season 11 Speedrun
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 requests to distinguish between the glitchless speedruns of previous seasons and the Lift's Any% speedrun.
Season 12 Speedrun
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. As a result, the four teams have been acknowledged as the joint-holders of the Wrong Warp Party Time Speedrun.
Season 13 Speedrun
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.
