Aspire V

Welcome to Aspire V! The wildest beatmapping event on osu! returns with a new host, a new format, and limitless possibilities.

Aspire is a contest that throws out the ranking criteria completely.

The aim of the game is simple: take (nearly) any song from the Featured Artists listings, and make a map out of it however you want!
