Scorewatch: February Week 2 (With Scorewatch Patrol) ---------------------

[Toy]s our boy managed to reverse choke DragonForce - Defenders with a HR 98.41% 2427 max combo play, setting a 593pp score. This basically meant he lost about 72pp, which is absolutely heart breaking, but a very impressive score nonetheless. Only 3 players have managed a better HR accuracy than him, and 2 have a higher pp score. Check it out, it’s nuts.


Hey, guess who also tried the same map? Cookiezi of course! This man has had no breaks this year, and this play is nothing original. How about a HDHR 98.64% FC granting him 718pp? The man with a HDHR mission continues to dethrone many famous maps such as Defenders, and has solidified the crown on this map and overthrowing the 669pp HR play set by WubWoofWolf. Amazing.


sobatsuyu pulled off an interesting HRDT mod combination on Resonecia - Legende, setting an unfortunate 99.55% 1 miss play to earn him 554pp. Pretty “legendary” we’d say, since this map is long and full of deathstreams


Somewhere, far and deep into the osu! scores, Tasha has managed to pull off a 99.59% FC on Kobaryo - Ponko2 Girlish (Kobaryo's FTN-Remix). This 9.74* map is seriously technical based, with notes coming in fast and slow, requiring precision and accuracy. I’d say 1:11 is my favourite part of this play. Check it out.


Ttobas seemed to have forgotten how to play osu!catch as he went insane with a 99.64% EZDT FC on Hitsuji to Ojisan - XENO, scoring 745pp. Aim is pretty necessary when the BPM hits 279, simply outstanding in our eyes. I guess you could watch the fruits slowly fall everywhere onto Ttobas’ plate.


===NOTABLE MENTIONS===

Cookiezi can’t control himself as he managed to HDHR FC Seiryu - BLUE DRAGON on the BLUE DRAGON difficulty mapped by Blue Dragon with a 99.78% 687pp play. Pretty impressive we’ll say.

Angelsim left his quiet zone to set a 670pp play on *namirin - Koi no Hime Hime Pettanko with a 99.29% HDDT FC.

_yu68 came out strong with a DT 98.69% play on Imperial Circus Dead Decadence - Uta on lolcube’s Hell Oni, setting 479pp.

Zyph broke the speed barrier (kinda?) with a 99.93% FC on the 263BPM Loved antiPLUR - Speed of Link.

osu!mania 7K World Cup: And then there were 2

The osu!mania 7K world cup scene has been commanded confidently by Team China since the return of competitive 7 key to our repertoire of yearly tournaments. The former champions, South Korea, has been edging to get another shot at taking down the superpower to reclaim their title as the country home to the greatest 7K players ever known.

In line with a series of domineering performances given out by the South Korean team, it looks like Team China will be vacating the throne as champions of keyboard grinding for a new king!

All podium placers will receive the usual physical goodies as well as split a prize pool that will likely be announced shortly.

With that out of the way, it is time to say goodbye once again! But don’t cry, because next week deadbeat will be back to shower us with flowing juices from the fruit of knowledge. If you have anything you’d like to contribute to our lovely little publication, be sure to drop by the osu!dev discord and drop either me or deadbeat a highlight. Otherwise, our usual inbox, news@ppy.sh is open and ready to take in whatever you have to throw at it!
