That's right! Pacific League will be making its grand return for Season 4! We do apologize for the long wait for this highly-anticipated tournament and hope that teams still enjoy the tournament nevertheless. This is something we aim to remedy for 2024 and beyond; more details will be shared at a later time.

Format and Schedule

For Season 4, we will be sticking with the format that was established during Season 1 and reintroduced in Season 3 — that being the WCL format. As a refresher, the WCL format splits teams up into different divisions depending on their skill level, with each division bearing six teams. Matches will be played in a Double Round Robin style, with each team playing each other twice. As such, the tournament will last for five weeks. Whichever team has the best record after these five weeks will be crowned the champion of their respective division.

Each week, for five weeks, matches will take place on Friday evenings at 9:00pm EDT and 10:00pm EDT. For Australian and Japanese teams, matches will take place on Saturday mornings at 12:00pm AEDT (or 10:00 JST) and 1:00pm AEDT (or 11:00 JST).

For Week 5 only, because of the Americas leaving Daylight Savings time, Australians will play their matches at 1:00pm AEDT and 2:00pm AEDT. Americans will still play their matches at 9:00pm EST and 10:00pm EST (note the timezone change to EST).

Player and Team Eligibility

This time around, we will be handling eligibility a bit differently. All teams that sign up must contain a minimum of 9 players that reside on at least one of the following continents:

- North America
- South America
- Oceania
- Asia (Japan only)

What does this mean for European players? Unfortunately, due to numerous European dominant teams making the previous iteration of Pacific League very difficult by forfeiting matches and ultimately dropping from the tournament, we will be prohibiting European dominant teams from participating this time around. European players can still participate, but they must join an American, Australian or Japanese dominant team.

Having said that, we will be heavily enforcing this policy by utilizing manual verifications on the MKCentral Registry. Teams will need to be manually verified by staff before officially being granted entry into the tournament. As a quick note, teams are able to send out invites to their players even if their team hasn't been verified yet, so there's no need to wait for staff verification. Teams who attempt to bypass this policy, such as inviting a bunch of superfluous American/Australian/Japanese players to their roster to hit the quota, will be denied entry to the tournament.

Staff reserve the right to deny any team's verification request or remove any team from the Pacific League Season 4 registry page for any reason.

Pacific League Season 4 will begin on October 13, 2023 and will end on November 10, 2023.
