It's time for another Mahjong Tournament! Given SquareEnix is letting us to travel to OCE wolrds, this tournament is going to be on Sophia, Materia, the OCE datacenter. Let's see how well it works for us.

As always, this is a player event: it is not affiliated with FFXIV, SquareEnix etc.

Games: 2024-05-03 to 2024-05-05

Extra prizes will be announce on the Discord Server. The spreadsheet includes space for private games. After the finalization of the timetable, feel free to challenge some players for a game to fill the time. There will be second ranking for those, which also include the scores for games someone subbed in.


A big thanks to the sponsors! If you want to sponsor, feel free to send it to my PayPal or get in touch.

6+ Hanchan Round-Robin'ish. As before, it depends on how many people attend.

Since I'm trying to accommodate players from all over the globe, the games don't have necessarily to be in one single block each day. My current plan is to have 2 games per player each day. Having more slots just helps a lot with not playing the same people each time.

All games will be played in Final Fantasy XIV Online as friendly matches “Full Game Four-player Mahjong (Kuitan Enabled)” on Data Center Materia. Don't be confused, what Doman Mahjong considers a “Full Game” is just a hanchan, it's not an iichan. After the game, since FFXIV doesn't have logs and spectator mode (yet! Yoshi-P, please add one for us!) the result should be screenshotted and sent to the organizer.


I want everyone to have a good time, so please show good sportsmanship. In case of bad conduct, I will take the liberty to disqualify any offending players. Should any problems arise, even during the tournament, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Riichi Rules

Most of these are the result of playing in Final Fantasy XIV Online.

If a player is late by more than ten minutes, they are replaced by a substitute player for the hanchan.

On Missed Games and Substituted Players

Substitute players are scored normally and then not included in the ranking. The player missing the hanchan doesn't get any points and will have a 30 points penalty.

Final Fantasy XIV Online

All games are being played in Final Fantasy XIV Online. To play, a trial account is sufficient. You only need to unlock the Gold Saucer. Note, if you're not new to Mahjong, it's recommended to change the display from actual dora (setting: doman mahjong) to dora indicator (setting: traditional). If your character is not on world Sophia on Datacenter Materia, you can use the World Visit System or Data Center Travel System to be on Materia for the tournament.
