That's because you did less MAXs (= 300g = coloured 300) than osiris_san.
300 and 300g are equally accurate, but 300g gives you more points.
Since I was using the "Perfect" mod, I (Rather falsely) assumed that it only allowed perfect accuracy :p

There are no upwards score modifiers in osu!mania - HR, Hidden, DT, Flashlight gives the same combo modifier as normal

Yeah but the game probably still detects that using DT makes you more of a badass and ranks you higher according to that.

In fact, having a MAX means that you hit with a better accuracy than a regular 300. The thing is that they just give the same accuracy, i.e. 100%.

Unlike osu!, CtB, and Taiko, the "Multiplier" is not a multiplier - I've had several cases where I've had up to triple their multiplier (Due to not missing a note - 200 multi VS 700 multi and the likes) and I've still been beaten. 300 (And more importantly 300g) is all that matters.

Mega accuracy is rewarded. It's a good thing. Since the maximum score is so much smaller compared to other modes, this is where the real battle begins. It's a rhythm game, and timing is very important.

This is fair for me: you did a much better job at improving your number of MAXs, and that's all that matters.
