I agree with rumia
Why don't we just go for approval with ET maps? Lenght of the map isn't a problem, I've seen A LOT of standard maps with even less than 4 mins approved, so there shouldn't be any problem. If map is well done and playable we should be able to get them in approved section.that was theold approved map criteria , the new ones need to be at least 6 mins

That, you have to persuade BATmanager or some BATs who have knowledgeable about this Approved thingy.
I didn't mean to say that the current ranked maps are bad or too easy. There's definitely a place for those first timer/beginner/intermediate maps too, they are equally and perhaps even more important than ET maps because the majority of the players is not ET. I just think we need to start ranking harder maps aswell, the community is getting better at it and we need to start thinking about the real ET guys too.That's exactly my point of view. The new ranking system, although far from perfect, is a breath of fresh air for o!m. I feel like it's time for us, the o!m community as a whole, both us, simple players, and BATs or staff members alike, to make o!m what it really should be after a year of existence.
I have been told part of the problems lies with BATs but I hope with some community effort we might get there too. The new ranking system (even though it is still quite unrefined) is a new hope for o!m imo - it certainly can be - and we as community can only try to make the best of it.
I guess more people have similar thoughts like me.

I'm fine with ridiculously hard maps. This game is supposed to be competitive.This.
And, good players have no reason to stay here if there's nothing interesting ranked...
So, yeah, there's no good reason to keep really hard from ranking.
The skill cap in this kind of RG is really really high.
And if we're speaking technical stuff, most ranked maps aren't good technically.
Especially the anime stuff >_> I see just random 8ths and some random LNs. Boring patterns too.
