AR will likely never be a huge factor in pp, the same kind of people who think low AR is god hard are basically the reverse of people who think high AR is hard, i.e people with little experience in it. like how your average newb playing ar6 normals thinks ar10 is impossible.

I remember being rank 140k and wondering how ar10 was even followable.

Patterns in lower AR might mess you up anyways even if you can read them since there are so many notes in screen at once. Which is why there is bonus for being able to read those notes in addition to being able to read that lower AR.

Higher AR lowers the amount of note density so why it should be rewarded? For being able to react faster in a rhythm game? Learning to play AR10.3 in general gives you so many maps more to play that there is no need for bonus. Just like there isn't any bonus when you move from AR7 -> AR8 -> AR9.
Completely agreed with this coment. Reading AR9 or superior is rewarding by itself just because it allows you play most of [Extras] and +5 stars maps... and I don't like the idea that this bonus raises precisely these maps that already have harder patterns difficulty just because being higher AR by itself. Appart that AR is a really polemic fact because a map can be easier if played on AR8 but harder at AR10 meanwhile the opposite can happen ... high AR (below AR+10.33) can make the same easier or harder depending each individual player and I don't find just that players with only higher AR reading that can't read well AR9 or lower at all get more rewarded from AR than players that can read AR9 and AR10's alike.

Changing topic, EZ is not a really balanced mod at all but it's viable ranking with it (if you can :P). If you look at millhioreF you can look that EZ is really fine on this algorythm, 98% of EZ is equivalent to 91% FC at no mod (on OD7 vs OD3.5) thing that I find really fair. It can't be considered farming because the really effective EZ players are really strange exceptions and players with atleast 1 EZ rank are less than 250's in total. The only thing I don't like at EZ's pp distribution is how bad accuracy scales because of the really low OD, it's more likely "FC is enough and worth, I don't need at all raising accuracy". And I would say EZ should NOT have a pp boost from reading difficulty because that could make it somehow overrated and if AR is no longer considered EZ should been beneficiated from this.

It takes a lot of practice to read high AR / low AR in the first place so I don't see why it wouldn't give any reward, already that "reading a map" doesn't give anything at first... So yes... obviously, EZ should have a PP boost, or in any case, the AR has to be considered in my opinion.

AR10 might be easier on some maps, same as ar10.3 but it's only easier if you can actually read it. Poeple spent weeks to learn to read this AR, I think it's something harder to do than just playing some AR8 / 9 and get the same amount of PP than someone who has gotten a new skill.

Like...seriously, someone who plays AR10.3 only all day won't be able to play Easy at all. It would need a lot of time/practice to do it. And when he will finally be able to FC a map with Easy he will probably get nothing because DT gives way more PP than anything else. So for a system who's supposed to work on INVIDUAL skill...

I think EZ having a pp boost for AR doesn't really matter as much since the od is mangled.

AR under 9 should get a pp boost. Just a little for ar7/8, but it should give a good 10% boost for EZ. There's no reason why reading skills shouldn't be rewarded. It's not subjective, high object density is difficult for everyone and requires a lot of practice to master.

congratulations, now your 60pp easy plays can become 66pp plays
the 'it's still not worth it' and 'there's more to it' effects could be nullified by separating aim, speed and acc, and creating a separate category for reading.

AR below 8 already does give a bonus. An increased one if hidden is being used. Since forever. :)

In my opinion, AR8 should also be included in this bonus. The standards nowadays are AR9 and AR10, anything below or over that is hard for people to read. Yes, it depends on the map (more precisely, on object density), but in most cases AR8 is quite difficult.

Ar8 would give a pp bonus for reading just like od7 does for acc.

I think that low AR / Easy are fine how they are, Easy isn't meant to be for farming, it's to make maps easier (assuming you can read or memorise maps with it).

As they find how to separate again Aim and speed then maps like Tsunamaru - Daidai Genome will get massively nerfed on DT because there is not much speed at doing single taps and triplets of 210 bpm at all (not even a single stream). That one is really overrated and very wanted just because the pp it can give... at being overrated from both star system and being OD9.67 q-q

Sincerelly I would like that a day Accuracy becomes not that independant from the map's difficulty. There are many free accuracy high OD maps that are being abused too oftenly, mostly DT ones, maps that even with their OD9 or OD9.67 lots of people rank with +99% accuracy and starting being overrated at rank from free accuracy high OD maps.

+99% accuracy is fine I know, but I mean, if it's from a map that lots of persons can easly do +99% compared to "easier" (less stars) maps that are more difficult to accurate finely and even if they're OD8-OD7 that ISN'T high OD, then I wouldn't like calling these +99% high OD ranks a really good proof of high accuracy.

The only problem I see from OD7 maps with good difficulty and with not so many circles is that their 95% and 100% values aren't that different compared to DT's 95% againist its version but at 100%. Looks weird seing less oftenly good 100% no mod ranks than 100% DT ranks on people's best performance and we see higher accuracy precisely on these OD9-OD9.67 DT maps than on these OD8 harder no mods with similar stars that the same player have ranked.

This needs atention and a counter, affortunaly it's planned a day to consider patterns complexity on the pp that each map gives, thing that should nuke down most DT overrated ranks, that HR would been unharmed and raise no mod potential (if I'm guessing right, sure)

If I learned hd and 2x100'd my top play, that'd be 304pp. Od 9.67 too strong.

Any pp from skillet hero [Fate] is totally worth, such a beast DT rank man, nice one. The mix of anoying long sliders and circles or sliders between them makes it considerably harder than most DT's of that value, it's even better than my #1 of 252 pp. Also both cases of DT are fairly good DT ranks.

I thought the exact opposite; I found sentimental love + DT, seven doors nomod, up all night HR, Miiro [extra] &c. much harder than hero. I don't think the sliders are annoying, they make it easier for me to maintain whatever acc I could as opposed to having all cirlces. Don't most people alternate sliders?
DroidBass
To be honest, I've seen people of higher rank than mine or yours not being capable to FC skillet hero at DT on Fate. Also you should ask it to more players to have a better perspective about that rank, but personally find that map a way too difficult because my aim always sucked xP

I know, but the bonus should be more and it should include ar8. Low AR will never be the meta or farmable but giving it a small boost would be nice. It might encourage people to play the thousands of AR8 maps there are.

So when are long HR maps gonna be weighted fairly? I have a 97% FC on Let This Go with HDHR which is a >2400 combo map worth 174pp, while Jamaican Love DT at 98.92% (which is like a minute long and the only "difficult" part is a single stream, the rest is just a bunch of triples and sliders) is worth 227pp. That seems like a pretty big gap to me, especially since Jamaican Love was a 2 try map that was absurdly easy (I didn't even think I'd get pp for it and it turned out to be my #5 play) while on Let This Go I'm ranked #16 global, which says for itself that it's not that easy to get a decent HDHR score on. It's just one of many examples where long HR maps are weighted kinda meh while short DT maps with one or maybe two spaced streams are weighted ridiculously high. Isn't there a way to bring some balance to this?
B1rd
SS is 310 pp. If you have good acc longer maps give a lot of pp. At higher levels at least most of the HR farm maps are long.

edit: I think that long maps + low OD or accuracy are underrated.
