i would like to add that i belive if you practice correctly and efficiently snapping comes naturally at least it did for me
I'm already playing at the same level as I did with a mouseThis is completely normal.
I took a break from osu! for a few months. I decide to come back, and surprisingly, I notice an improvement in my aim and stamina when I play offline.Connecting to Bancho=instant skilldrop? xD
Connecting to Bancho=instant skilldrop? xDNo, I just get nervous when I play online.
It's actually in his head.Nah, I got an S on a map I wasn't able to before. I got some damn nice combos on maps that were too hard beforehand.
"Quest system" -> check o2jam, DJMax Trilogy, Beatmania IIDX, etc... Could provide a lot of fun and motivation to compete against yourself and not again others (aka pp)I personally find PP as a perfectly acceptable way to provide fun and motivation, though, and don't quite see what's wrong with that.
Once you are a bit more mature, I think we can continue this conversation, because I except you to not begin to defend something you like for the pure fact of defend it.I'm defending it because I disagree with what you say completely. I do feel this game rewards competing against yourself with the PP system. I feel that the game is far more newbie friendly than any other rhythm game I've ever played, and I do feel it's perfectly possible to enjoy the game without caring for ranks, and I do not feel the concept behind osu is totally messed up, because I don't even know what you're calling messed up.
lack of resources to compete against yourself.Oh, well in that case I'll have to agree to disagree. Chasing FCs and PP is plenty rewarding for me. I agree there could be more but I don't personally see a need for anything else, as I personally feel PP and the feeling of my own progression is satisfying enough by itself.
"The rank system is broken", you just need to put some very high rank players to play some old maps with low AR, or let some of them play slow BPM streams, or weird patterns, then ask yourself "what's hard?". Maybe you won't understand this right now.Well that depends on whether the high rank players bother to know low AR/BPM or weird patterns. It's not practical knowledge for ranking, so a good few won't, because the community at large doesn't seem to like those values.
So if this game is focused on competing against others, how are the newbies going to actually be able to compete against others?The same way everyone else competes? By playing the game of course, and improving yourself. I've gotten to 5k in a year, so it's definitely not difficult to compete as a new player.
How do you except a 2015 player, that will play non-stop till 2018 to beat an old playerRafis signed up only 2 years ago and is currently rank 2 globally. It's very much possible.
low AR, weird or disliked patterns among the players, slow BPM streams , etc... if the progression in this game is viewed mainly from a PP perspective?Those values aren't favored among the community and you're unlikely to find any of those values in a newer ranked map, so they're not relevant to PP, honestly. A majority seem to dislike them, or at least not enjoy them, so they don't get made.
