Just curious if any other top level players have noticed an increase in their aiming/reflexes in real life. Like for example, do you notice you react to falling objects faster than before? Or if you play sports, has osu made your accuracy in said sport skyrocket?
only thing i've noticed any increase in is humanbenchmark reaction time test, well for most people anyways


still have absolutely no hand eye coordination irl

reaction time for other video games pretty much. nothing in the physical world. and how the hell do you only have 96 playcount

A car came at me with AR10 and I managed to hit it.

But no seriously I know this is not relevant to me "top player" but I fail to notice anything outside of gaming.

Fastest in the world even.
I mean, being able to do that after only 96 playcount is really impressive.
Please tell me you're joking?

Yeah, my reflexes improved from osu!
Went from like 270ms to 190~210ms.
My hand-eye coordination is also better than before osu!

When you meet a rank 8000 in multiplayer do you think "wow this is going to be easy"? You can't tell someone's skill just from their profile or rank.

Reflexes did improved. I dodged a fast thrown baseball coming directly to me.

Aims didn't affect at real life because it only affects cursor aiming on computer.

They certainly have. I was sitting and minding my own business in the school cafeteria, alone as always, when this girl I've had a crush on, slipped just as she walked past me. With the reflexes and improved decision making I've got from all the hours spent in osu!, I managed to both catch her and everything on her food tray. I could tell she was impressed, and so was I; I had not even been able to catch a ball since I was 5 when my dad rolled it over to me.

Edit: just remembered another moment. I was in school when this school bully approached me, he had always been on me; I have a slight suspicion he might have been a closet homo. Anyway, he wanted to fight and I was scared shitless. When he finally threw the first punch, it felt like slowmotion, like AR 4. Even though it was slow as hell, I could just not read it and I just stood there. The hit connected and my nose started gushing out blood. I might have been able to dodge it if a Hard Rock mod existed irl.

osu! has made me more ambidextrous in every day life and also significantly improved using the left side of my body for technical stuff and sports

I can CAD faster and that's about it.

I think I have a phobia for vinyl records now (if bad things count)...
