Requirements

You will only gain EXP if:

Game Options

KMQ offers different game options to dynamically narrow down the selection of songs based on your preferences. The current game options can be viewed by using /options or tagging KMQ Bot.

Use /help action:[command_name] for details and examples for every bot command.

options

When applying a new game option, the newly updated option will be bold in the bot’s response.

/limit

Setting this option “limits” KMQ bot to the top most viewed music videos out of the total number of songs. Increasing the limit allows less popular songs to play; decreasing it restricts it to more popular songs.

For example, /limit set top limit:100 will play the 100 most viewed songs in the current game options, while /limit set range limit_start:250 limit_end:500 will play between the 250th and 500th most viewed songs.

View counts are frequently updated from YouTube.

/groups

Setting the groups option limits the selection of songs to those belonging to the artist specified. For instance /groups set group_1:blackpink group_2:itzy group_3:fromis 9 group_4:bts will exclusively play songs from those four artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in /help action:groups.

/gender

Setting a gender specifies the gender of the groups you’d like to hear from.

male, female, and coed can all be used at once (/gender set gender_1:male gender_2:female gender_3:coed), but alternating must be used on its own.

Note that /groups and /gender are incompatible with each other. If you wish to continue using /gender, reset /groups first.

Want to control whether groups or soloists are exclusively played? Check out /help action:artisttype.

/cutoff

Setting a cutoff limits songs based on which year they were released. Using /cutoff set earliest beginning_year:2015 will play songs from 2015 onwards, while /cutoff set range beginning_year:2015 ending_year:2017 will play songs released between 2015 and 2017.

/seek

Setting the seek type changes which point in a song the bot starts playing from.

/guessmode

Setting the guess mode changes the objective of the game to guessing the name of the song, the artist, or both.

/exclude

Setting the exclude option ignores songs by the specified artists. For instance /exclude set group_1:Day6 group_2:Momoland ignore songs by those two artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in /help exclude.

Similarly, to force groups in to the game regardless of the current options, use /include.

/goal

Setting the goal ends the game when the given goal score is reached. For example, if a player were to use /goal set score:50, the first player to 50 points would win the game.

/timer

Setting a timer limits players to guess in under time seconds before the round ends automatically. If no one guesses right in the allotted time, the round is over.

Set the timer to 10 (5? 3?) seconds and face off with your friends to see who the ultimate KMQ champ is, or set it to 30 seconds and avoid the /skip spam.

Presets

Want to store a set of options and be able to load them with one command? Use /presets!

/preset save

Save the current options as a new preset.

/preset export

Get a preset identifier used to load or import the preset in other servers.

/preset load

Load the given preset into the game options.

/preset import

Create a new preset from a preset identifier.

/preset replace

Update a preset with the current game options.

/preset delete

Delete a preset.

/preset list

List all the server’s presets.

Game Modes

Getting tired of classic KMQ? Try out elimination, teams, and hidden mode!

/play elimination

See who can survive the longest into a KMQ game with elimination mode. Guessing correctly will save your life while everyone else loses one. Use elimination mode in conjunction with /timer to raise the pressure!

/play teams

Team up with your friends and crush the competition with teams mode! Split up into as many teams as you’d like and see who will emerge triumphant in the battle for 10% more EXP! Once your team is confident of its abilities, join the official KMQ server to face-off with the best of the best.

To keep the game fair, switching teams mid-game forfeits your current points and EXP.

/play hidden

Instead of guessing in chat, /guess directly to the bot. Everyone can take their time to think out what song is playing before the timer ends.

/play suddendeath

Everyone shares one life! If you can’t guess the song in time, the game ends. No hints, no skips, no second chances.
