Play osu for the music > urge to FC the song you like > listen to music & gain PP

of course there will always be that song that some mappers decide to not make easier difficulty for.

Improving =/= more pp.

riviclia - most unerranked mouse only player only plays for crazy clusterfuck scores. cptnXn - stopped caring about pp after he got top #10 only plays crazy hard no mods (in fact still has 200pp plays in his top scores, total opposite of farming). Omforz - embodiment of fuckyoupp. Me - don't care about 250pp DT plays anymore just want to practise no mod consistency even if I miss out free DT pp.

is just an excuse, when it becomes too hard. True heroes never give up no matter how hard it becomes. If you reach your true potential, pp comes naturally.
True warrior's power is measured not by his strength, but by his spirit, only the greatest heroes never lose sight of that 1000pp play no matter the circumstance. THEY NEVER GIVE UP.
AND SO WILL I, WILL NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THAT 1000PP PLAY.
I may be pleb, my aim might suck, but one day the dream is going to be real!

why are we getting inspirational with a rhythm game? Just play how you like to play but don't come to GnR when you have problems

someone necroed 2year old thread, so it was a good opportunity to get creative.

osu! is a very hard game if you are playing it for the first time, and even just simply getting entertained from the music requires good basic skills at the very first place, which can only be attained from improving to such a level. Getting pp is probably the closest measure for knowing that someone has quantitatively improved (aside from DT farmers), and this has been so prevalent in the lower ranks and newer players, since getting pp and ranks feel so much rewarding.

and eventually get hooked and it escalates. And that's where osu gets you.

Tfw 270 and under is worthless

This is a fairly late reply, but it seems that when other people get more pp than you, your Rank will go down, regardless of your Last played score (Unless you earned a LOT of pp and gained more than you lost)
I did lose pp when I logged in today, so I think if you take too much time off or fail a map you've completed before you might lose some. I didn't even lose a point though, just .07 of one :p

Yeah I think he figured it out after 4 years lol

Try not to resurrect in old threads like this, this thread was made back in ppv1 and pp worked differently back then, first page might confuse new people now.

The only way you lose pp is when, lets say, you played a 2000combo map, had 1900combo and 99,5%. You play it once again, but now you have FC'd, had scored more than in previous play, but your acc was way worse, like 95%. You lose pp because you did a better score but it is paid less in pp, because of acc.
