  • This contest is for osu! (standard) mode only.
  • The osu! Ranking Criteria DOES NOT APPLY to this contest.
  • You may submit ONE difficulty to the contest. This may be of any difficulty tier that you wish, though Aspire contests typically attract Expert (5.25+) and above.
  • The map itself must be able to be passed, with mods or otherwise. Maps which autofail (defined as immediately failing at the end of the map when played by Auto) will be immediately disqualified, no questions asked.
  • Any entries with additional resources (hitsounds, storyboards, etc) must be submitted in .osz format, with a size no greater than 20mb. Accounting for song size, you have roughly 11mb of asset space available for your use. Petitions for additional space must be sent via forum PM to Ephemeral.
  • The drain time of your entry must be at least 70% of the song's total length. Basically, you have to map at LEAST 70% of the song.
