The Map of the Week (or MotW for short) is an osu!standard contest that we run from our discord server where you pick the maps (which may get picked for the week) and compete against other players in your bracket to get the highest score. There are 4 rounds a month starting on the 1st of the month. Each round lasts a week. On the 29th of the month, the scores for each person between the 4 rounds are tallied and the highest scorer wins! Players in the top 10 of each round gain points depending on what place they come. If you come first, you get 10 points, if you come 10th, you get 1 point.
There may be a few kinks here and there but we will get them fixed as quickly as possible (I'm only human UwU)
The Map Pool
You choose the map pool. Every week, you can add maps to the map pool with the following discord command: +addmap <beatmap_id>. You can only add one beatmap. If you do the command again, the beatmap you selected will be replaced with the new one. Each bracket accepts maps within a certain star range. You will get a message if you try to add a map outside of this range.
Link your Account
You will need to link your Discord ID to your osu! player name. To do this, type in +link <osu playername> and follow the instructions in the PM. Once you have authenticated your account, you will be able to access the motw channel for your bracket. If you name contains spaces, wrap it in speech marks or replace the spaces with underscores.
The night before the next MotW is due to start, the map pool will be rolled and a new Map of the Week will be chosen! It is then up to you to get a good score on this map using whatever mods you want.
There are eight brackets, you will be assigned a bracket after you have linked your account. You will need to be 1,000k or under to participate in the MotW (But that doesn't mean that 1,000k+ can't participate in the chat).
WH Bracket - 200k to 1,000k
NW Bracket - 100k to 200k
BA Bracket - 50k to 100k
EZ Bracket - 25k to 50k
NM Bracket - 10k to 25k
HD Bracket - 5k to 10k
IN Bracket - 2k to 5k
EX Bracket - 0 to 2k
For your score to appear on the leaderboard, you must send the +submit discord command after you have played it. Once it is submitted, you can then do +scores to see the latest leaderboards!
On the 29th of the month, the winners for each bracket will be announced. Each winner will win 1 month of supporter! A rule has been implemented to keep things semi-fair, in that a winner cannot win twice in a row. If someone does win twice in a row, the supporter will be given to the person in 2nd place for the relevant bracket. This is so people are not discouraged from people who may possibly win every single month.
If you have any questions, or need some clarification on this, please speak to TheMeq or Staff in the discord who should be able to help.
Good Luck, and Have Fun!
