Welcome to the 4th BotB Advent Calendar!

24 days until Christmas, and every day will have a different format and bitpack for you. Which one is next? That's the surprise! Make sure to check this battle every day to not miss a format you might be interested in!
Formats and Bitpack change at midnight (PST Timezone).

You can read more about this series here. Also check Advent Calendar 2020!


This is basically a timezone-friendly XHB :D

That means, that the average time you should put into an entry is 1 to 4 hours. You can obviously work a lot longer on your track if you want, but don't think you're forced to do this. The usual XHB-rules apply: Your entry should be done within the day, please don't submit tracks you finished earlier, follow the rules or use the provided samples, depending on the bitpack-type.
Voting Categories
