Tournament management commands

The following chat commands are provided for remote management of multiplayer tournament rooms:

  • !mp make <name> - Creates a tournament room with the specified name. A maximum of 4 such rooms may be created.
    • This room is special in that it is not closed when all players have left the room, and it is password protected from players joining this room themselves.
    • When the room is finished, use !mp close to close the room.
  • !mp makeprivate <name> - Creates a private tournament room with the specified name. This command works the same as !mp make but match history is only visible to the room's creator and its participants.
  • !mp name <title> - Updates the room name.
  • !mp invite <username> - Invites a player to the room.

Sending !mp help to BanchoBot will reveal the commands.

Items enclosed within angle brackets ( <> ) define "parameters" of commands. Parameters enclosed within square brackets ( [] ) are optional. Usernames must have any whitespace be replaced with underscores ( _ ). #<userid> may substitute <username> in all of the commands.


The commands are usable from both within osu! or through an IRC client such as mIRC, HexChat, or HydraIRC.

The original host of a multiplayer room can also use these commands. If the original host leaves, the next host will not inherit the commands. The original host will be again be able to use the commands if they rejoin the room.
