I got frustrated with Osu! STD and wanted something new, plus the keybased rythm system appeals to me more.

1. Why did you start playing osu!mania?

My friends were into it at the time. I started late in the fad but in the end I'm one of the only people left who plays it still. And out of a group of 7 I'm now 2nd best in raw 4k skill. :D

2. What is your favourite keymode?

It's a tie between 4K, 5K, and 7K.

3. What is the layout of your favourite keymode?

DF JK, SDF JK, and ASDF JKL, respectively.

4. How long have you been playing osu!mania? (not including other games)

Around 8 months ago, with very few days where I went without playing.

5. Which osu!mania song do you like the most?

It depends on what the specific criteria is.

For song, it'd be Terekakushi Shinshuki. That voice is just adorable <3
For map, it's really difficult to pick a favorite. I can easily name my least favorite of them all, though- Ray. The map structure is garbage, and unlike the much longer but similar trainwrecks that are World's End Girl's Rondo and BBKKBKK, this one is worth barely any PP at all.

6. What is your favourite type of patterning?

Index streams. The End solidified my love for those, due to the fact that they're simultaneously simple and draining.
Well, that, and playing The End as much as I did means I'm pretty darn good at them now.
Jumpstreams follow in a close second.

7. Do you prefer to play in multiplayer or solo?

I mostly play solo. No pressure, just a race against myself.

8. Who is your favourite osu!mania player?

A lot of the meme-spoutin chat trolls are fun to be around. Eternalie, Konner-, gusto -_- and the like. Soularion was cool too, but he's moved back to Stepmania cause he don't want to play anything but 4K. His loss!

9. Who is your favourite osu!mania mapper?

Fullerene-. I love people who accept nothing less than insanely difficult.
Although nowsmart is a bit of an exception there. I look at nowsmart with a bizarre mix of fear and respect.

10. Do you like to play unranked or ranked maps?

I play both extensively, especially since the pool for my main mode, 4K, is woefully underpopulated in terms of ranked maps at my level (4.75*).

11. Do you like osu!mania? :)

I wouldn't play almost every day I could have if I didn't like the game. :P

1. I came for standard, hated it, then found that there was a few more modes, namely mania. I thought it was a cool spin off of Guitar Hero, which I played since 2007, and the rest is history.
2. 4k is my favorite, but if given a Guitar Hero controller, I could dominate 5k.
3. Standard DFJK
4. I played my first mania song on like September-December 2014, but actively started playing on like January 2015.
5. My favorite is probably Bangin` Burst novice lvl 9 by Spy because it was the first map I really felt accomplished playing.
6. I like stairs and trills.
7. I like solo b/c you gt infinite retries :)
8. My favorite player is Staiain, but I like jhlee`s godly plays too.
9. My favorite mapper is Spy because I gained tens of thousands of places thanks to him.
10. I like ranked maps better, but some unranked maps just don`t get the attention they deserve to get ranked.
11. I like it, but the ranked mappool could use some more variety (RANK MOAR STUFF!)

It's been 2 months since I started playing o!m, so I thought I would do this again, considering I'm now a pro!

1. Why did you start playing osu!mania?
I switched from Guitar Hero to osu! as my go-to game. I knew that there was a 'Guitar Hero gamemode', but I didn't know what it was called. I found out it was osu!mania and now I get to have the best of both worlds.

2. What is your favorite keymode?
4k or 5k. I have yet to encounter 2k or 3k, but they sound alright.
4k. I still love 7k, 6k, and 5k, though.

3. What is the layout of your favorite keymode?
Standard. (DF JK) (DF JKL)
4k = XC ,.
5k = XC M,.
6k = QWE JKL
7k = QWER JKL

4. How long have you been playing osu!mania? (not including other games)
About a week.
2 months.

5. Which osu!mania song do you like the most?
Sedap Malam and Utakata, Ai no Mahoroba are my current favorites.
I love Blue Army and End Time. Those are unranked, though. I don't really have any ranked favorites.
I still like SM and UAnM.

6. What is your favorite type of patterning?
Not sure.
I think stairs. I still don't really know the names of patterns yet, even though I have been playing for 2 months.

7. Do you prefer to play in multiplayer or solo?
Solo.
Not striked because this is still true. I do sort of like playing multiplier, though. Gives me a chance to try to new maps.

8. Who is your favorite osu!mania player?
I don't know. I just play the game.
Jhlee, Staiain, Etienne, HNC_yk, Tokiiwa, and -Halogen.


9. Who is your favorite osu!mania mapper?
I don't know. I just play the game.
I'm pretty sure it's Spy. There are some others that I've seen very frequently, though.

10. Do you like to play unranked or ranked maps?
I was going to say ranked, but I think I like unranked better. Unranked is just for practicing and it helps me get better so I can play ranked maps and get better accuracy and more pp so I can level up.
I like ranked a little better now. Only because it makes me level up. Unranked maps are usually harder and more fun, though.

11. Do you like osu!mania? :)
Nope. I absolutely hate it. It's the worst thing I've ever played.
Just joking, stupid question. Of course I do.

Why not?

1. Why did you start playing osu!mania?

A game that I play with a ranking system seemed pretty cool, so I decided to try it out. Also to mess with the community a bit, previously going under the alias 'Staiainfangirl', lololol.

2. What is your favourite keymode?

4k

3. What is the layout of your favourite keymode?

ZXNM

4. How long have you been playing osu!mania? (not including other games)

This game specifically, about a year or so. Been playing 4k for around eight years on and off though.

5. Which osu!mania song do you like the most?

Anything that's fast and doesn't suck, lol.

Staiain, Shoegazer, Inteliser, Halogen-, Sillyveon, and more.

9. Who is your favourite osu!mania mapper?

Fullerene/Shoegazer

10. Do you like to play unranked or ranked maps?

Unranked. Every o!m player knows the site ranks such garbage maps lmao

11. Do you like osu!mania? :)

It's fun it its own way but there's so much wasted potential for the game that it makes me dislike it sometimes.
posted
1. Because it's fun.
Really, it's much better than the other modes where you can easily get frustrated if you miss a circle or some grapes.

2. 4k and 7k (enjoy each in different way, can't say I enjoy which more).
7+1 is good too but I need some help with skinning if I want to play that >.< and too lazy to ask for help.

3. WER space IOP for 7k, ERIO for 4k.
Default too low for me. One row up feels much better.

4. About 6 months.
o!m is my first vsrg.

5. Tough question. There are so many songs that are cool in different ways.

6. I don't know any type of patterns lol XD probably streams and bursts?

7. Solo.

8. Any player that are nice and enjoy game to the fullest :D

9. Lieselotte and Rumia in 7k, Spy and Tidek in 4k.
Damn why did Liese quit ><

10. Both. But mostly ranked as i don't know much unranked maps my level XD

11. I really enjoy it as my first vsrg. But i'll also try other rhythm games in the future. O2Jam and SM maybe? :D
