Hey there,

I recently heard someone say that you can now get maps from 4:30 mins of drain time ranked with a single diff of hard or above. Is this true?

If the drain time of the highest difficulty is...

...lower than 3:30, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than a Normal. Because osu!mania does not have a difficulty-specific Ranking Criteria yet, an osu!mania beatmapset's Normal difficulty is defined as a difficulty below 2.00 stars. For hybrid beatmapsets that include osu! difficulties, the additional modes’ lowest difficulties cannot be harder than a Hard.

...between 3:30 and 4:15, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than a Hard.

...between 4:15 and 5:00, the lowest difficulty of each included game mode cannot be harder than an Insane.

...anything higher, the beatmapset is exempt from reasonable spread rules.
So for 4:30, you don't even need a hard, you can just have a single insane. Note that the diff requirement isn't "x or above", it's "x or below". For future questions concerning rankability, you may want to check out the general Ranking Criteria and the mode specific Ranking Criteria of your preferred game mode, linked at the top of the general RC.

I've read the ranking criteria yes, but I heard someone talk about exceptions where a 4:30 map or smthng can be an extra. Wasnt true though, then.
