Rigged Wiki:News/Spring 2023 Team List, Format, and Dates
Sign-ups for the 2023 4chan Spring Babby Cup have closed and 37 teams have been accepted for participation, which are:
Since 37 teams were approved for this cup, the 2023 4chan Spring Babby Cup Qualifiers will be held in order to reduce the total team count to 32. 12 teams will compete in three groups of four for 7 slots. Twenty matches over three days (six matches per day with two extra on Sunday) will take place. The top two placing teams in each group will automatically advance to the Spring Babby Cup. The three third-place teams in each group will then participate in a playoff round where the two worse-placing teams will have a match, and then the winner of that match will face off against the highest-placing team for the remaining slot in Spring.
Babby Cup Format:
The Autumn Babby Cup will be a standard 32 team cup consisting of two weeks of group stages and one weekend of knockouts.

Patch and Rule Change Reminder:
As a reminder/repost from the previous Manager News post, Spring 2023 will be switching to PES 2019 and the AI Patch will be Ladies' Night v1.2, which can be downloaded HERE. If you have not done so already, download it, unzip it, and overwrite the 4cc_60_midcup.cpk that should already be in the download folder of your PES19 directory.
Additionally, as PES 2021 is no longer being used at the moment, the usage of any 3-4-3 variant formation is now allowed.
