How to get key

Gatari is a private server for osu! The access to gatari is invite-based. To create an account on gatari one needs a key.

You can either receive such a key from a friend who plays on gatari (every active player receives a key for a friend once a time period) or purchase it with a monthly supporter.

For ~2.5$ you get a key and premium-status for a month and the account will stay with you forever. In order to purchase the key with supporter go to support page and make a payment after filling in your email address instead of username.

After successful payment you will receive the key by email. The payment confirmation can take some time (up to half an hour) so please be patient. If you have any further questions you can get help either in gatari vk group chat or by PM Firedigger.

Respected members of osu! community such as content creators, mapper or top players can contract admins in order to receive a personal invitation.

If you are a strong offline player looking for a server, you can apply for an access to the server with a liveplay proving your skill. Here, "strong" means top 50 gatari material at the time of applying or some kind of unique skill only 10 people in the world can contest. Requirements for the liveplay are explained in FAQ in the section about "Verified legit player" mark.

FAQ

Is Gatari a paid server now?
Not necessarily. One has always been able to buy the access to the private server osu!gatari through a 1-month supporter purchase. In February 2019 we decided to make an official invitation system. Rather than buying your way in you can get a key from a friend who's able to get it through supporter purchase of themselves or completing a special quest for playtime.
How to get a key for the server?
You can read about that at https://osu.gatari.pw/docs/key
I don't have friends or money, how do I get a key?
We might have giveaways or promotions but there is no specific plans as of yet. Follow our twitter and vk blogs and you might get lucky.
If I buy a key with supporter, will I have to rebuy it every month to play?
Activated accounts are never deleted. The supporter will last for a month but the account will stay with you forever.
Am I allowed to sell my key for a friend? Can I purchase a gatari key from a 3rd party seller?
An acquired gatari key is in full player's ownership, they have the right to exchange, gift or sell it to anyone. However, in this process one is not allowed to disinform the other side about gatari ways of working. You should understand that gatari is not obligated to help the victims of unrealiable 3rd party key sellers. There is no intended way to inspect key validity before registering and the original seller is able to activate it at any time after the purchase as well. A safe purchase of a key with a month supporter from the official website for the price of supporter is a good deal. My last advice to key sellers: you have to remember that if your client gets banned you will face punishment as well.
How long does a key live?
The key longevity is indefinite. Occasionally we have to clear the keys due to emergency however if your key became expired, you have the right to request a change.
How to get a key for a friend?
The simplest way to get a key for a friend is to purchase supporter. You will immediately get as many keys as the number of purchased months of supporter. Each player also has a quest for 10 hours playtime of passed maps, which will grant you a key on completion. You can follow the progress of the quest in the quests men, click the button to the left of your profile pic.
I would like to play on gatari with my brother/sister/boyfriend/girlfirend/mom and we have a shared PC. Can we do it?
Firstly, you will need to acquire a key for the new player. Secondly, after registering a new account don't activate it in-game just yet, you should contact Gatari heldpesk in vk describing your situation and writing both usernames. The Admin will setup possibility to play together on a single PC without getting banned.

If you activate the account before the setup, the anti-multiaccount protection will trigger, banning both accounts. Be aware that playing on the same PC you risk your own account in case of offence from the other player. If cheats are detected on the machine or a multiaccount, both accounts might be punished regardless of who broke the rules (as it is impossible to tell). |

I am already an experienced osu! player. Will I be banned if I start setting high pp scores immediately?
We obviously understand that the new players on gatari are mostly experienced players and our anticheat is configured to account for that. It only uses common sense and external software detection mechanisms to recognize cheaters. Play without cheats and you won't have anything to worry about!
Will I need to redownload the maps when I switch to gatari?
No. osu! maps are stored in your client and are not affected by server switcher.
