some people use or abuse this terribly bt i love the technique so i give it a 4. Don't over do it though. Also please don't make automatically think that you must use this technique, it only applies to the type of song, and it's really hard to make it readable. It's best to just not do it at all until you become a very VERY experienced mapper in the art of streeam creation. (<- lel)
This is terrible and should be unrankable imo. I can 300 them just fine and usually on the first try, but they're extremely annoying in the way bad patterns in old maps are. A map with this feels like it wants me dead and makes me paranoid while playing. Note that I only hate random huge jumps in streams Oboro, variable speed is fine. I'm glad this has been posted though, I want to see if there's even a single person that enjoys them more than regular streams.
Thread title should be as stated in the OP: "Round 55: Variable Spaced Streams | Discontinuous Streams"
The one where you have a jump in the stream but with no change in timing between the notes is the latter. (The last one in the examples in the OP is the best example imho)
Anyways, I nominated discontinuous streams not because I like them, but because I absolutely hate them. Only rarely have I found them to be even remotely fun. Although, they're not ~too~ bad with the right bpm and jump distance. 2/5
Variable streams are kinda fun sometimes, but only if it is readable and looks nice. I've seen people do stupid stuff with this technique though, so 3.5/5.

1 because while gradually increasing/decreasing the spacing of a long stream over time can work very well - same with the example where they simply change from one DS to another and signal that with a new combo, or hell, even the last example - two of the examples in the OP are worth -10 points each and more than cancel out the more sensible examples.
I think there alright, but in most cases there pretty bad because they are hard to read :3 (unless there a drastic change in music)
I've never came up with these streams that much though, prob one time a while ago and that was it, I guess they need to be properly placed or else there just bad in the long run. (but I most likely see this happening in instrumental songs where you can really experiment with the beat).
