Let me just add in something about what one of the issues about this was.. (with multi players not being able to tell)
I don't want to get involved :<

On a personal standpoint, I believe that the mapper should have free reign on what they name difficulties, AS LONG as it's properly noted in the mapper's words.

The example above isn't a proper way to doing so, fwiw.

Mapsets with a clear star Rating = Names like https://osu.ppy.sh/s/48574 are allowed.
Mapset may have not clear star rating, but have correctly placed diffs (from easier one to hardest one)

https://osu.ppy.sh/b/56518 (star rating shows E E N, but diffs correctly placed from easier one to hardest one)
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/121716 (2 5.0 star diffs, but mine placed before Skystar, so it's easy to guess that mine is easier one)

what about names like: https://osu.ppy.sh/s/94631 ? them make sense as a diff spread for me but not sure o.O

What does it matter in regards to multiplayer and not having a name indicative of difficulty when you can't see it, more often than not?



everyone knows this is the only map being played in multiplayer these days, anyway

^ that's a technical issue, not an issue with the rule itself.

We can stack tons of examples but I don't think we're coming far with such comparisons. To me it doesn't looks logical.

I've gotten clarification that if the diff names make sense and you CAN distinguish a set of difficulty, then it should be fine. (ie: that map you linked and 90% of my ranked maps).

After discussion with other staff members, as long as the level of difficulty is distinguishable in the difficulty name, it is okay to use.
For example: having solely a mapper name is not allowed, but having something like Easy Normal Hard Void or Pennies Dimes Nickels Quarters is perfectly fine.

Removing difficulty is for what reason?
Custom diffname is cool. It makes osu! different from other MUGs which have only standarded diffnames. It can tell the style of a mapper, the emotion in that song/map. It works as a Easter Egg sometimes like thishttps://osu.ppy.sh/s/111531. To let people recognize the difficulty is only a part of its function.
I bet that you can't tell the differences between a RLC diff and a Rin diff, but the diffname does.
I have to say, what about making the star calculating system better to make it possible to recognize difficulty just by counting the stars? Even doubling the upper limit of stars is fine, then the diffname will just be a name. More freedom will be fun since osu! is a game not a engineering. Afterall we still have some famous star calculation bugs as DragonForce and FreedomDive.

how about Easy Normal Hard Void Apple Orange? Allowed since it's obvious that those are all insane and higher?

Everything that has needed to be said regarding this topic has already been said.

in other words, make sure the average human player can understand what difficulty the map is by reading the difficulty name. without knowing the mapper. without special knowledge of a niche topic.
