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.
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 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.
