I still think this is a great idea. As stated previously, if you don't care about other modes, just ignore the cumulative rank like you would ignore the other modes rank.
Amane
great idea!

It's a bit lame with the learning curves though.
It's no problem for anyone halfdecent at standard to get to 1,5k pp in Taiko in no time as the easiest Kantans already give 50pp for SS and Futsuus 100pp.
Tbh any further mechanics that encourage players to play the maps that give most pp for the least skill or effort is bad for the game and especially in Taiko and mania where you got some converts that are terribly effective for pp yet rather worthless gameplaywise. Like full don Taikomaps...

I have a lot of respect for people who play all modes on a decent level but I think such an cumulative ranking isn't the correct way to promote them.

So is this just a way for people who dont only play standard to be able to say "Im a higher rank over-all than you" to other standard players?
I dont see the function for this, really; other then that.

This wont lead to all-mode tournaments or all-mode in game rankings. Seems like clutter. Yes people can ignore it, but people won't.

osu!mania: I dont play because of releasing sliders.
Taiko: Makes me dizzy.
ctb: Makes me dizzy.

Honestly I agree there, this is an interesting idea but it just doesn't seem needed... more or less another way for bragging rights.
Just my opinion.

The "people won't ignore it" and that they'll use it for bragging rights (is that seriously even a thing people care about????) argument works as an argument against having a pp system at all. The current pp system favors people who play certain types of maps, regardless of which game mode you're referring to, just like an all-mode ranking system would favor people who plays all modes. An all-mode ranking system would actually be harder to exploit for bragging rights though because you can tell so easily if someone doesn't play one or more of the game modes - having a 1pp play as a top performance in some mode tends to make it obvious, for example. This, of course, is assuming that people actually care about using rank for bragging rights rather than for a fun bit of competitiveness. Which is really really silly.

The "x pp in one mode is not the same as x pp in another mode" argument is true and I stand by what I've already said in this thread that the pp curves for all modes would need to be smoothed out before this would be a good idea. I do think it would be a good idea when that happens though.

Okay. Should I make a thread in feature request sub forum suggesting that all ranks should be removed from the game. What is the point of having a rank if not bragging rights...

I think when you're already bumping it would be good if you added the arguments given so far to the OP to make it easier to discuss for people who see it for the first time now so they don't have to dig through 7 pages.

Wow! This is genius. It reminds players that they don't have to stick with a mode or two but be flexible and that osu! is not just osu! standard. Neat.

Edit: I would send a couple stars, but I have none atm so..

i like the idea.
i would start at least trying the other modes too then (maybe...)
Flami
good but there are a lot of people that only play one or two modes and not all four which would make it kind of weird imo
mulraf
also liking the idea a lot and thought about it as well.
sadly no more stars left ;(

that would be pretty cool but i would be sad to see how low my average rank is considering i have a horrible mania rank.. how would it work with people who dont have a rank in a gamemode?
