Mappools @ Wiki | Livestream


Welcome to the osu! World Cup 2014 Mappool discussion thread.
Here you can discuss everything related to the mappols within the biggest worldwide osu! tournament.

Please address your criticism and suggestions for further mappools to ToGlette and GladiOol here. Whenever a new mappool is released, I will post a notification here.

Mappool for Group Stage has been released. Mappack is on its way.
AmaiHachimitsu
The maps seem appropriate for the current level of competition (without many top players)

But I don't think it was the way to go.


No opinion about the quality whatsoever.

This mappool looks cool, there are various mapping styles and it could be nice for strategists.

That Red like Roses map is terrible :l

Maps look a lot easier to the point where I wouldn't be surprised if 99% of the players SS'd (or 1 100x off)

It's mainly due to a different approach. Last year the focus was more on consistency whereas we try to put more focus on the difficulty curve. Maps get harder as the stages progress. That's our goal.

just a suggestion, why not add HD+HR and HD+DT? or at least allow HD for HR and DT

Hmm, I like the idea of starting out with easier maps and the difficulty progressing with the tournament! Looks like a nice selection of maps.

It's definitely challenging to read, but I wouldn't necessarily call that a bad thing.

Same maps again from previous OWC mappools. Why not to make totally new mappool? :P
Nwolf
Maps from previous map pools have always been repicked (except the first world cups k) so why not

Yep, compared to the last year, these maps look way more easier and theoretically players should have been progressed and become better... How many thousand of maps there are, i think that's one of the main reasons why it's kinda weird to see same maps in the mappool. Well, accuracy wars here they come.

Good maps are good. It's that simple. That's why they get used.

There is a serious problem with this mappool: lack of approach rate variety.
All maps are AR9 , all DT maps are all AR8.
this year osu! introduced the new feature, and we have all sort of cool AR9.2, AR9.3, AR9.5 maps
and I would like to see some AR9 DT maps.

AR7 please

I don't see any problem with easier maps. OWC atmosphere kills your play stability anyway
So yeah go try FC during a match if you think it's easy

About mappool: Please don't use already used maps, there are plenty of others
This was mentioned the previous year and nothing changes : (

AR9 DT is not something you will ever find in the first stages of this tournament. Later on, who knows.

Good maps are good. I've played nearly every single map ranked in 2014 I'd consider viable in terms of difficulty for the group stages and this is what I found. The amount of TV Size maps is shocking really. I cannot use those maps. Anything that's below 2 minutes in length is no-go for me by definition. I prefer maps to be over 3 minutes or have over 1000 combo.

Hmm.. Is there a problem with choosing older maps? Obviously not too old because the audience will be angry
I am sure there are maps that provide adequate difficulty even to this time
