I get the "play more" thing, but on my side I'm playing the same time everyday, went from #100k to #30k in 50 days, and since then I'm stuck at #30k, not moving an inch, still playing as much.
I tried many things but I guess everyone have a limit at some point, it's a bit like starting violin too old.

30k will not be your limit.

Apparently it is, I didn't stop playing, trying everything but the best days are when I manage to barely get back the rank lost.
I dunno why, for some reason it was so easy to rank up until 30k an suddendly not moving an inch since one month.

Maybe it was an instance of your skill was much better than your PP so you ranked really fast, but now your skill matches your PP, so you have to really tryhard for some of the scores, and you're feeling deflated because you're not used to not gaining ranks, and don't feel confident enough to make much ground.

You need more 100pp scores.

See if you can play https://osu.ppy.sh/s/53519. That was one of my first triple-digit-pp scores.

Well most of my top scores are only in 3/4 tries (and no FC) - after, the most I try a map the worst it goes (often loosing pp 'cause more combo but far worst accuracy). Thanks for the map that's indeed the kind I like, I tried it a month ago but got 1 miss in the middle so now I can't do it before long.

Honestly I find the biggest barrier to improving is to have enough maps you like. I could probably re-FC anything on my top plays within 5 attempts, but most maps I don't like :/

And yeah, trying the same map too much is usually bad, unless you really like the map (or are an acc-whore like I am, but go for the FC first)

We might have a similar taste in maps. PM me anytime you see me ingame and I'll /np you a bunch of stuff, hopefully it'll help.

Sometimes I fc in one-two plays for a session; sometimes I play a map 60 minutes straight to fc.

I don't think any of my top ranks are fcs... Fcing is so hard.

You aren't even trying.

Trying didn't get me far.

Still this magic 30k barrier since nearly 2 months, I don't get it. When I finally achieve a difficult score on a map after 2 days of tries it's only to see "-40" rank 'cause I lost like 70 and this score gave me 30 (maps given or not by Tillerino).
I don't play for the rank but it's not really encouraging hmm. At least that mean a lot of people play the game very actively.

What do you play? What is your goal for the map? How often do you retry? How many hours a day do you play?

Hmm I tried all kind of maps (4~5 stars) to break this 30k limit, I still prefer jumpy maps with tricky patterns over fast-streamy maps, I like insane with low ar/bpm but these are almost non existant. The thing is their is always that one random miss never at the same point, where even watching the replay I often don't see how it was a miss. I end up with 5 stars at 98% with one miss in the middle and never FC the map~
Even my top rank score has a miss near the middle.

Also I avoid long maps since after 1min my hand get sweaty and the pencil end up in weird positions almost out of hand so I do mostly 1~2min maps or maps with a lot of breaks to pause.

The goal is often to FC (or almost) with 95%+
Usually retrying 2/3 times then moving to another map ('cause it get worst with more tries), but since I was never FCing any map worth PP like that I try to play the same map 40~ times in a row tho the result isn't really better. And 1h/day, more is not possible with full-time work and others stuffs.
I didn't loose all hopes but fast gain in rank followed by totally stuck state is hard for motivation ahah.

If you want slower, jumpy maps with patterns, that's basically my entire top plays list. Try some of the maps I have. (Some of them are rather long though)

Buy tablet to become sanic speed player.

False, I'm probably the slowest person on this board and probably the strongest tablet advocate only behind maybe Khel

That and the only 2 guys who went in the top 50 of Time Freez nomod (a map made for speed people, really) were mouse players (Angelsim & Doomsday).

Tablet might be strong for aim, but doesn't do shit for my acc and speed. If your strongest attribute was 100, I would be like this:

Reading: 20
Speed: 10
Acc: 7
Aim 100

Because my other attributes are so shitty, I have an extremely hard time improving lol. Haven't gotten better in my last 3k plays =/

I'd say I'm really bad at aim/tapping synchronization. I tap early way too often, and as a consequence have a lot of random breaks when patterns get more complex.
