Monthly Beatmapping Contest April 2017: osu!mania


osu!mania's first MBC for the year kicks off in style, featuring the tunes of cYsmix! Test your mapping mettle for prizes, Elite points and more.

Arguably the most popular of the alternate gamemodes, osu!mania is the new kid on the block with all the style to match. Give mania mapping a go, and see what you can do to the thumping tunes of cYsmix's track, Breeze!

Download the contest .osz file and read the rules in more depth at the Contest Listing page!

What are the prizes?

The winning mapset of the contest as determined by popular vote will walk away with the following:

  • 3 months of osu!supporter (for yourself, a friend, or many friends)
  • The winning map will be featured by the osu! media team
  • The winning map will be fast-tracked for ranking
  • 25 mapping Elite points (details to be announced at a later date)

What are the rules?

  • All submissions must be for the osu!mania gamemode only.
  • All entries within a submission must be for a single keymode of your choice, though we suggest either 4K or 7K to reach the maximum number of players. To clarify, this means either a 4K set or a 7K set - not 2 4K difficulties and a 7K difficulty.
  • All submitted difficulties must adhere to the Ranking Criteria as closely as possible.
  • You must map at least three (3) difficulties in an appropriate spread as per the Ranking Criteria. ENH (easy, normal, hard) or NHI (normal, hard, insane) are acceptable. You may add an Expert or Extra difficulty if you wish when making a NHI spread for a total of NHIE.
  • No more than four (4) difficulties can be submitted under any circumstances, and ONLY if your spread is NHIX OR ENHI, otherwise you may only submit three.
  • Collaboration is allowed, but the contest entrant will receive the points towards Elite status and feature prizes.
  • Maps and entries submitted must not be uploaded to the BSS until the contest has concluded. Doing so will disqualify you immediately.
  • Difficulty names must only be the name of the respective difficulty. Things like 'Evening's Moist Popcorn or 'jhlee's Jubilee are not allowed. You may use mode-specific/keymode-specific naming, like 4K NM, 7K EZ, so on, so forth.

The contest will run for 30 days from the date of this post, so get cracking!

Good luck!
