I guarantee it's nearly impossible that you are having trouble reading ar9 at that rank. Can't watch the replays right now, but you mention the map diamond, and complain about jump patterns etc.

I speculate that you are actually having trouble snapping to circles, you should practice some jump training or some DT hards with jumps in them. A good map for practice is wahrheit.
What has rank to do with the ability to read maps properly? I'm 2k and I still can't read anything.
Also, snapping doesn't have always something to do with reading. If you can't read pattern properly, you can't aim properly aswell, since you don't know where to go next.
I'm sure if we scrolled down most people at rank 20k's top list, we would find that the majority of their maps are ar9, as most maps that give you the pp to get to rank 20k from around 50-60k will be ar9. There is no way he or anyone got to 20k playing maps they can't read.

Also I didn't say snapping was necessarily related to reading, I said that snapping was the problem he had, not reading.

Also, I'm sure you can read something if you got to that rank :P.

The difference in mentalities is simply knowing more about what you can and can't read.

For some extremists, "being unable to read every conceivable pattern perfectly at a certain AR" means they can't read it, even if such patterns are genuinely some of the most difficult.

People at rank #20k perform well on technically simpler maps, even though set at the same AR as more difficult ones. Reading a certain AR is not an indication of your ability to read patterns. That comes second, and while affected by AR, doesn't determine your reading ability alone. For example, rank #20k players don't have the fundamentals or capacity to read complex patterns yet... at any AR. They can read AR9, but they can't read the difficult stuff at AR9. Just like how better players can read difficult stuff, but not all of it. You can apply this to any AR within reason. Both groups can read the AR itself, but not every object configuration in combination with BPM at that AR, or possibly at any other AR too. There are so many different capacities for reading, which come together to form your reading skill. It's highly misleading to refer to reading skill in AR terms only, even if it is part of it.

i don't know any 100k that claims they can read big black; i don't think anybody over 10k can pass it

Go lurk around here for some more, you might be surprised.

Focus on the notes one by one.

Yes, I'm aware of this effect. Maps like scarlet rose being pretty hard to read, despite being ar9 (ar10 honestly makes that map easier though). I was just poking fun at how he said he cant read anything :D.

But yeah, OP should've asked how to read, not how to read ar9. But with the maps he mentioned which aren't hard to read at all, I still think snapping is actually his problem, not reading.

I know quite a few people who don't ever bother going for FCs or otherwise grinding pp. 2 of them are even rank 50k and are way better than me.

Also, I'm just going to say, this post is more of a hand-eye-coordination skill problem than a reading problem.

Just because I can read jump pudding, https://osu.ppy.sh/s/42567, etc. doesn't mean I can pass them.

43.6% nofail on big black counts as being able to read it nowadays

so does 70% on airman

What do you mean 'snapping' is his problem? snapping to notes is snapping your cursor to them before you need to. Maybe you mean aim.

I think a good way to measure if you can read a certain AR if you can play at similar circle densities and level of patterns as others ARs.

Yes, I know what snapping is, he describes having trouble with patterns, and the map diamond, which can be very hard if you don't snap.

Edit: Nvm, just watched the replay for the first time, yeah it's reading all right.

it's not that you can't read ar9

it's just that you can't read at all
..........

or it might be that some people's minds move faster than the circles come and tend to get confused by having too much on the screen and might just move on to the next note before they even hit the previous, idk its just how it goes for me, might not be the same for everyone else

I said I fixed it but I didn't fix it. It's too late now; what has been done in the past cannot be undone.

Who in the world finds reading ar 9 difficult?

You should just quit osu cause ar 9 is already slow
