Rules

  • Submission must be a "full beatmap experience" including the following:
    • Remix of the song Kuba Oms - My Love
    • Beatmap spread following the ranking criteria
    • Storyboard or custom video
  • Submission must be in .osz format.
  • Beatmap must be in osu! game mode only. Comparing beatmaps of different modes in a judging scenario is unfortunately not realistic.
  • Beatmaps should abide by the ranking criteria. While we can be forgiving for mistakes, submissions that could not be ranked without major changes will be questioned.
  • Team name and members must be confirmed through this form. If your country does not support Google forms, send pishifat a message. Teams are limited to 5 members.

Teams are encouraged tease their submissions in this contest prior to the results being announced.
