Monthly Beatmapping Contest
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
- is the judge
- 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)
|Mapping With Rewards (Sep. 2015)||Mapping With Rewards #1 - Bounties Complete!|
|Mapping With Rewards (Oct. 2015)||(Still active!!)|
