so basically, unranks like this one: https://osu.ppy.sh/forum/p/3381966 were pointless?

how about normal to hard or easy to normal? there are all 1/1 in easier diffs but 1/2 in harder diffs
blissfulyoshi wrote:Before you think I'm crazy, first let me explain my reasoning. As pointed out in the op, a lot of hard diffs use a lot of 1/2s and a lot of X diffs use 1/4s, or in other terms a 2x increase in note density, but with no real middle ground. While this might be okay with lower difficulty maps, as you go to higher BPMs, the gap between hard and X becomes increasingly large. Luckily, dt is only a 1.5x multiplier, allowing the creation of that middle ground, which could solve that problem.
BPM is a sign of difficulty too, if you ignore the other tracks just because of difficuly. sorry, that is not mapping.

As you might expect, the Hard diff plays like a normal 130BPM stream diff, and extra plays like a 260BPM stream diff. The question is, how do you bridge them? The only reply I got about this was use triplets and/or short sliders t/256562 . While this solution works, 260BPM triplets isn't exactly something I would consider insane, regardless of spacing. However, a 195 BPM stream 130 * 1.5 is definitely a lot closer to an insane diff, which leads to the necessity that dt diffs should be considered in the spread.
I think something seriously got lost in translation because I really don't understand you, but first off, difficulty should never be purely judged off BPM. BPM is an indicator of how fast the downbeats are in a music, nothing else, assuming it is timed correctly.

Does that mean you can have Easy Hard Insane sets now (telling from the icons), when the gaps between the difficulties are even? Or did i misunderstand something.. Also, is it still allowed to name the difficulty Normal in this case instead of Easy, although the icon is an Easy one?
