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 simply tagging KMQ Bot.

Use ,help [command_name] for details and examples for every bot command.

For each command’s usage, arguments:

If no arguments are passed, the game option is reset to its original value. To reset all options, use ,reset.


When applying a new game option, the newly updated option will be bold in the bot’s response. To learn more about how to use a specific game option, check ,help [option].

,limit [beginning_limit] {end_limit}

Setting this option “limits” KMQ bot to the top most viewed beginning_limit 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 100 will play the 100 most viewed songs in the current game options, while ,limit 250 500 will play between the 250th and 500th most viewed songs.

View counts are frequently updated from YouTube.


,groups [group_1], {group_2}, {group_3} …

Setting the groups option limits the selection of songs to those belonging to the artist specified. For instance ,groups blackpink, itzy, fromis 9, bts will exclusively play songs from those four artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in ,help groups. Make sure to separate the groups with commas.


,gender [gender_1 | alternating] {gender_2} {gender_3}

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 male female 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 artisttype.


,cutoff [beginning_year] {end_year}

Setting a cutoff limits songs based on which year they were released. Using ,cutoff 2015 will play songs from 2015 onwards, while ,cutoff 2015 2017 will play songs released between 2015 and 2017.


,seek [seek_type]

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


,guessmode [guess_mode_type]

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


,exclude [group_1], {group_2}, {group_3} …

Setting the exclude option ignores songs by the specified artists. For instance ,exclude Day6, Momoland ignore songs by those two artists. You can view the list of groups names via the link in ,help exclude. Make sure to separate the groups with commas.

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


,goal [goal]

Setting the goal ends the game when the given goal score is reached. For example, if a player were to use ,goal 50, the first player to 50 points would win the game (,end is called automatically).

To disable a goal, use ,goal.


,timer [time (seconds)]

Setting a timer limits players to guess in under time seconds before the round ends automatically. Once a user gives a valid timeout, the timer will start at the beginning of every round. 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!

Alternatively, set it above 30 seconds and avoid the ,skip spam.

To disable a timer, use ,timer.



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

,preset save [preset_name]

Save the current options as a preset called preset_name.

,preset export [preset_name]

Return a preset identifier (KMQ-XXXXX-...) that can be used to load or import the mentioned preset in other servers.

,preset load [preset_name | preset_identifier]

Load the mentioned preset or exported preset identifier into the game options.

,preset import [preset_identifier] [preset_name]

Create a new preset with name preset_name using a preset identifier.

,preset replace [preset_name]

Replace the mentioned preset’s options with the current game options.

,preset delete [preset_name]

Delete the mentioned preset.

,preset list

List all of the server’s presets.


Game Modes

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

,play elimination {lives}

See who can survive the longest into a KMQ game with elimination mode. Using ,play elimination x, everyone starts with x lives; the last one alive wins! 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 things fair, switching teams mid-game forfeits your current points and EXP.
