bold make good keep attention very nice upvoted

anyway ive been changing ar9's to ar8's for harder maps to dt since forever, and i can confirm its improved my mashing skills 300%
Thanks :D

you can even combine this with the BOOSTER technique, but I didn´t write about DT stuff cause I am not a friend of it and also don´t have experience with DT :D

In general, the BOOSTER does work with anything which is currently to difficult for you to pass
thanks! ive already boosted myself to 150% as skilled as i was 8 months ago!

sure that´s why I said I didn´t make any preparation, otherwhise it would be smaller, more accuratly and with pictures, I am sorry that you even started to read my stuff

nah man I'm just gonna buy the osu!tablet and the osu!keyboard,sounds a lot better than this

I said it doesn´t work with stuff you can´t solve with min 65% in the begining xD

It also worked with THE ISLANDER for me, started with 60% 2 months ago and solved it last week with 99%

I personally do something similar to this, but I usually focus on 75-90%. It seems like anything under 75% ends up being more spam than reading.

exactly, you still need to have a focus even while failing a bit more circles than usually :P

I mean, if you want to run the risk of very bad habits and low accuracy which will eventually come back to bite you when you stop being able to just grab a harder song to get 95% on to get pp. Lets make a reasonable assumption. Lets say you can fc every map that "K i R i K a R u" who is ranked 100 at the moment of this post has in his top ranks but with only 95% accuracy. A 99% is worth about 95% of the pp as a 100% so a 95% is worth about 76% of the pp of a 99% play. 6400pp*76% = 4864. Now lets see where that puts you in terms of rank. Roughly 860. Now that's fine if you don't ever really care to be much better than that.

If you do want to be higher than that, then have fun ridding yourself of the bad habits developed from always rushing into harder difficulties before you mastered the previous level of difficulties. This is even being generous enough to assume you even make it up to this level of map difficulty before hitting a huge wall spawned from bad habits which is the more likely case.

Also, the problem with player A who has 20k plays and 500pp and player B who has 5k plays and 2k pp pretty never due to the fact that they spent time trying to master easier difficulties. In fact, playcount doesn't really say shit when we compare 2 players since who the fuck knows what player A's 20k plays consisted of. It could very easily be from restarting maps after 10 notes over and over again playing with perfect on (WoLoG). To list a few things these 20k play counts could consist of:
  1. Playing maps that are too difficult for the player over and over again expecting different results (perhaps some people take the difficulty name "insane" too literally...)
  2. Playing a small pool of maps over and over again seeking the desired 98%+ accuracy benchmark when in reality they should be playing an ever increasing pool of maps of this difficulty until they can consistently get 98%+ with minimal effort on maps of this diffculty
  3. Lots and lots of retries
  4. Shorter duration maps (Some people are bronies and other people really enjoy maps for their favorite anime OP/ED's)


In theory if you play more you will get better outside of some uninteresting degenerate cases that aren't worth talking about. Some of the ways you can play asymptotically approach the skill cap for this game and thus aren't practical (for example if you were to pick a 10 star map from day 1 and play it millions of times you would probably eventually hit the skill cap but that's not practical). The suggested methods tend to be the ones that develop the best habits and tend to have a smoother time derivative (ie. less walls/smaller walls).

If a player is looking to improve, we suggest what are considered to be the best ways to improve. If a player wants to have fun then why the fuck are they asking us how to improve? They should ask us "how do I have fun at this game?" But if they have to ask that question then why are they playing in the first place?

To be able to play in the top ranks, you need to be able to pass the top maps, you won´t reach the top maps if you keep playing your 99% solved maps and hope you will become better cause a fairy gave you the power for that. Means if you want more PP, you need to play maps which are more difficult, but you can wait till christmas if you keep focusing having a good Accuracy in your current maps. I am still using this technique and my accuracy is very good, since I play maps, which I play to get PP, till I got 99% or better, but I rather keep focusing aim, accuracy in these maps which I use to boost myself than in maps which offer ONLY a better accuracy, ofc, begin with slow stuff, build up accuracy, play faster stuff after that is the perfect way to go, but th BOOSTER technique is so much more effective till 5 star maps

Improved accuracy will spillover into every other skill in this game. You can't get good at other skills solely by improving your accuracy but those skills will be gained as you work to push the boundaries of maps that you can have this level of accuracy on. Many misaims come purely from moving at the wrong times. You can't have good accuracy without learning proper stream technique and finger control. Accuracy is highly dependent on reading. All of these skills required in difficult maps will be trained simply from training your accuracy with a varied map pool. Not only that, these skills will be trained properly without falling into bad habits like mashing.

Is there an English version available for download?

You know what else you have to do to get into the top ranks?

Practice on maps where your accuracy isn't so low that you obviously spammed. Anything < 80%, maybe even 85% (with some exceptions), is more than likely just spamming.
