OWC #1 Brackets





Round of 16

Group Stage


Tournament Rules

  1. One of two captains must post the link of the multiplayer history after the match, you can find it when you join the room into the chat.
  2. If a team not present during the match, that team will be disqualified. Opposing team is obliged to wait for at least 15 minutes for the team to show up.
  3. Any form of cheating will be punished with the disqualification of the team and ban of the cheating player.


  1. The first stage of the cup is divided depending on continent.
    • Example: Europe country vs Europe country (Poland vs Portugal).
  2. All matches follow knockout tournament rule.
  3. 32 countries. If not enough countries, cup's stages will be modeled based on the number reached.
  4. Each country's decision will be represented by a "captain" who will choose the members of the team and will inform players about the timetables.
  5. Captains will be chosen by language specific topics or discussions in IRC specific language channels made by trusted players/staffs.
  6. Teams should made up of 4 players and 2 backups in case one or more players are not available to play.

Match Instructions

  1. For each round, a list of 15 Beatmaps will be given chosen by a staff member of the tournament(a non-player). Countries can choose one of these beatmaps to play for a match (I recommend you prepare another choice in case your opponent chooses the same map) of the round. Beatmap packs containing the 15 beatmaps for every round will be created for convenience.
  2. The matches will be played in a private room created by one of the two competing captains.
  3. Settings will be osu! standard, 4 vs 4 players, "Team VS" mode and Win condition: "Score".
  4. The country with highest team total score (total score of all players) will win the map.
  5. The only mod accepted is No Video.
  6. In the case of a 1-1 draw, there will be a default tiebreaker map that decided by the cup staff.
  7. When a team fails, the other team automatically wins the match.
