Season 4 began on August 24, 2020. The regular season concluded on August 28, followed by the postseason and 4th Internet Series on August 29. It is the 3rd season of The Discipline Era. Season 4 concluded with the Hades Tigers defeating the New York Millennials to win their second Internet Series championship.
Drought is the third subtitle of the Discipline Era, appearing after the Season 3 election when the league announced that an extended siesta will delay the start of Season 4. No games took place for two weeks so that the umpires and other league staff could have the opportunity to work on large-scale maintenance and to rest their tired flesh.
Despite the hiatus, The Commissioner still actively communicated with Blaseball fans on behalf of the league. This includes The Unmasoning, an event in which The Commissioner attempted to repair The Wyatt Masoning with the help of fans on Twitter.
Feedback is the fourth subtitle of the Discipline Era, appearing the day prior to Season 4's opening games. This introduced the new weather condition, called feedback, that has a chance of swapping the allegiances of two players on opposing teams.

During the Extended Siesta preceding Season 4, residents of the Bloodhouse discovered a 5-Blood Blagonball, an artifact of unknown origin and power. On Day 23, Sandie Turner of the New York Millennials discovered the 3-Blood Blagonball during a game against the Charleston Shoe Thieves. Nothing else is currently known about the blagonballs.
The Waveback Event

On Day 88 (August 28), Blaseball game servers "experienced a significant loss of data" that forced the Umpires to roll back the state of the game world by approximately eight hours. As The Commissioner asked all fans to "do the wave," a number of repairs occurred behind the scenes, which resulted in most players gaining a large amount of coins and new Hawai'i Fridays player Sixpack Dogwalker being granted the unique bat, Bangers & Smash.

On the final day of the regular season, the Boston Flowers and Unlimited Tacos played a record-breaking 24-inning, 65 minute game that marked the first known instance of Spillover. Both teams played 21 scoreless innings en route to a 2-1 victory for the Flowers that enthralled fans across the league.
Round 2 Feedback
On Day 108 (August 29), during Round 2, Game 4, between the New York Millennials and the Chicago Firefighters, Feedback was detected in the top of the ninth inning, causing play to stop after Thomas Dracaena hit a ground out to Edric Tosser. When the feed had resumed, the game had already ended in a Millennials victory.
Following the Season 3 election, the following decrees will be in place for Season 4:
- Eat The Rich: Funds from the top 1% of coin-havers will be redistributed to the remainder of Fans at the end of the postseason. This decree will remain in effect indefinitely.
- Interviews: Additional player information is available when clicking their name on the lineup. The Microphone has gained sentience. Additional effects remain to be seen. The appearance of feedback weather may be related to "the microphone lifting."
