Mapping with Rewards

Mapping with Rewards are announced on peppy's blog. Unlike the #Monthly Beatmapping Contest— which runs a contest for any song(s)— mapping with rewards runs a beatmapping contest with official osu!songs from osu!artists, like cYsmix.

Some remarks about mapping with rewards (and some differences with #Monthly Beatmapping Contest):

  • submissions are subject to last minute judgement
  • no set deadline
  • ranked beatmaps of the requested songs may also subject for judgement
  • no mode specific maps (you can map any mode)
  • must be non-collab
  • single game mode (no TAG diffs)
  • preselected background images (current, if any, background images will be replaced)
