Meh. If you believe you are good you might be inclined to play more opposed to thinking you are bad and thinking along the lines of "I'm awful, what's the point of even playing."
I feel it's the opposite for me. I know for a fact that I'm not decent, so I figure that it's best to keep playing to improve and be decent. I get comments in my #spectator chat once in a while with people saying that I seem like a really good player, when really I'm not. It's more of a false hope thing. At least, that's how I see it.

Or "I'm good, what would I play even more?" or "I'm bad, I want to play more to become good"

I have a lot of plays/total hits for my rank (although I'm gaining ranks very quickly) and it doesn't bother me at all - I play because I enjoy it.
You have a higher ranked score than me lol

I just came here to say that i have played 60k games in one year and I'm still bad.

Dunno 'bout my rank tho. PPV2 liked me. So yeah playcount doesn't matter, don't compare it to skill. ^_^
rank 300 =/= bad, someone is looking for attention O.o
Someone is quite good at farming ranks. Doesn't mean I'm good. MP me or make me play a map with streams that are longer than 10+ notes. ._.

Convincing yourself you are good is one of the most successful ways of quitting osu!

As long as you don't believe you are good, you are stuck here forever.

You must have like ten trillion maps then.

This may be a stretch, but I'm gonna just say that it's probably the opposite for most people.

The people that stick around and continue playing the game don't think "i suck, why even play"

they think "i suck, i dont want to suck, i will keep playing until i no longer suck"

I can believe him since I'm in a similar position. I haven't done anything difficult at all and I'm rank 500 while I've seen plenty of players in the 1-2k ranks that FC things that I wish I could. You don't even need to have FC'd a lot of things, just need to play the right maps.

I know exacly how you feel. DT + HD doesn't really seem special to me. I can't do HR at all and i don't have the controls to stream for a longer period. I can't do slow stuff either. DT + HD is just really favored by the new system. I always lose MP to players with a lower rank.... I don't know how to get better at normal stuff.

That's cuz I used to just play every single map and didn't play challenging things, look at my S count compared to yours lol

Yeah, I know a lot of people will think like that. I just feel inclined to play games I'm more skilled at, I still try and improve in games I'm bad at. Key word - inclined - I just feel more willing to play games I'm better at. That isn't to say I don't try to improve.

Yea, and that's cool. Everyone is different.

First thing: Different people come with different abilities to this game. Maybe played a lot of ego shooters before and have fast reactions and already more trained with fast finger movements. Takes some time to adapt those skills to the osu-view, but still: Not everyone starts the same.

2nd: How you play the game: I played a ton of games with friends way below my skill level at that time.. That just doesnt help you much to improve (though i think it helps a lot for the overall accuracy to go back sometimes and play around with easy-to-handle maps!), but "wastes" a lot of playtime/hits/plays.

But as long as you have fun while doing it: F*ck that stats and keep going what makes you happy!
osu! made me better in Counter-Strike :)

It's funny, because I use to play semi-professional css, and I noticed those skills carried over when I first started playing with my mouse.
