I wouldn't do it because I am lazy and there are simply too many songs to even bother.
so instead of trying to hit to the beat of the song you should try and change the offset to compensate for you own sense of rhythm?How does changing the offset "compensate for ones sense of rhythm"?
it's rarely or never off enough to cause a noticeable hit error margin that can't be made up by simply playing better. this is just an unnecessary chore.

It doesn't change how the map plays to the beat, it simply shifts the timeline.
Also, pretty much only old maps are going to have the wrong offset and this is a pretty bad way on determining offset because it only gives you a general idea of if you're too early or too late - in your screenshot we can see that you hit notes too late too, and a lot can factor into this such as streams (nobody will ever perfectly maintain a long stream without having to compensate speed).
You should only be changing offset if you know for certain that it's off.
To get higher accuracy it's better to IGNORE the hit error bar (one less thing to look at/worry about while playing). Instead focus on what the hitsounds relate to in the music and time it in sync with them. Also fixing your UO takes priority over messing with LO. The only time you really need to mess with the LO is when the map is clearly and painfully out of sync; the couple ms inaccuracy are acceptable because windows itself fluctuates plus I don't think anyone can hit a stable -1/+1 every time they play. If you're seeing that on EVERY map you're playing that you hit early or late then it's commonly 2 things: 1) your UNIVERSAL offset is wrong 2) you're not listening to the music.I don't think ignoring hit error bar is a very good idea because it DOES work as it should and it's for you to diagnose(not sure how to spell) between your click timings and the actual song, rather than the beatmap itself, because it's the beatmap that's mostly not right.
To fix your universal offset simply go download the offset wizard song by peppy and put these sounds into your skin [ http://puu.sh/9BkRs.zip ] Then go into the options and open up the offset wizard (Have the offset wizard song by peppy playing). Stop the music and raise the offset to +10 or +20 and then start it; every tick try and lower it by 1ms until the sound shifts to a deeper almost muted kind of sound. From there go further about 3ms and you should be fine. If you're uncertain about it you should be able to hit stop and then play, the metronome ticks should sound the same as before you stopped the music. I use -5ms on my laptop, -3ms on my desktop. Commonly I see computers be within this range.
Any how, I already listed a few factors that affects your accuracy:You're missing the soundcard.
- Keyboard delay
- Song timed incorrectly
- Your skin's hitsound could have delays
Its like you read the first sentence and ignored the rest of what I wrote.No, I did not ignore the rest of what you wrote.
I change my offset fairly often, but honestly I wouldn't recommend it unless you're consistent enough to know for sure that your misplaying is due to the song being mistimed, rather than your own inconsistency. If you're an accuracy player though, on OD10 it really does make quite the difference; I think you guys are underestimating how many maps are out there that are mistimed enough to actually affect play.I know what you mean, if you have stable accuracy but still getting lots of 100s, then it's the offset/timing issue.
Honestly, you play low OD maps so even if the beat is off by 10ms, you are still easily in range to get a 300

I just didn't want to comment on it because I didn't want to. Also, it seems that actually you ignored what I wrote. Universal offset does not work for everybody, and I'm one of them. Only way for me is to manually set offset if needed.
Sure, some people might think hit error bar is annoying, but let's be honest, there is even an option to resize it, how hard can it be?
And all the lazy people, you're most likely just trashposting.
