Some decent points are made such as the "Same settings" and "Bad habits" sections.

Overall its just a wall of text that needs to be better organized. 5/10

I like this advice. if only it wasnt all a big wall of text. (use paragraph/spacing/whatever)

edit: here's a more aesthetically pleasing version. lazily editted

Some good, some obvious, 2 I disagree, the two above the last one.

A setting that suits you after 2 months of playing might not be the best one after a year or two. Your physical abilities improve with practice and thus you might need to change them several times in the first year of playing. Just do it wisely. You should stick to one setting the moment you feel your "aiming" hand is fully trained. But even then things like resolution full screen/window settings play a role and you simply MUST experiment with it as to find the best option.

As to copying playstyles, I'm pretty sure copying some manners may be beneficial for the player's improvement. Remember, that if something is comfortable for you it doesn't mean it's the best in terms of performance in a freakin circle-clicking game. You must find the best playstyle you can in terms of pure performance, e.g. your clicking hand position should allow to keep up with any speed you're physically able to and maintain it. If an effective playstyle isn't natural or comfortable for you, just make it so via practice!

Just look at all the players who grab their mice/pens in a strange way, the same with hand position on the keyboard. Do you really think this is how they've been using keyboard and mouse since ever? (implying that any standard PC user wants to work at maximum comfort)

I actually did get an ss on Scarlet Rose on the first day but it was in offline mode in a multiplayer match so the replay didn't save :\

I agree...

OT: I agree with your points, and it's almost sad that I've basically have been playing with these 'bad habits' for half a year. To me it has sorta become the norm for me to just repeat songs over and over until I get it or I just get sick of it. Initially my drive to get better was to just pass my friend in pp, and I'll admit that I improved more in 2 months than I had the previous half year I was playing. Ever since I did that, I started to have less and less fun playing without really realizing it and now its just a game where I'll compare myself to someone else and just think I'm bad.

Maybe quitting is the best course of action at this point...

Holy shit, this is like the bible of improving, can't disagree with anything. Though the formatting could use some a lot of work.

One thing that really helps improvement is to watch your own replays and critique yourself on what you don't do well on.

I find that that only helps when you're trying to FC a hard jump part and are not sure about how you're missing it

Damn some of these things hit really close to home.

If I could suggest you add one more reason, it would be something along the lines of "blaming your equipment(or lack thereof)"

Read it all. Very informative.

I'll probably be permanently stuck at an average play level. I am fine with that. It's not the end of the world if I'm not a good player. It's a lot less effort in the long run.

If you had a more consistent play history you would probably be a lot better.
