Fame doesn't make a game good. The worst might happen and it can backfire. Look at dota

I hope we stay as this and not as "1,000,000 people peak login" because if we do, shit happens not only in the community, but this innocent game of ours will be flooded with 9 year olds who wanna play COD for living

Not being pessimistic with popularity but then again, it will backfire for sure.

Peppy should monetize this shit, as there are 9 year olds begging their parents to pay for games anyway.

Peppy can deal with popularity by making it a paid service. Again with LoL and WoW, those are free-to-play games as well (lest you spend on mods and shit). If osu! does become a pay-to-play game, there's less incentives for kids to spam as it is money wasted. Again that would also correspond to a decrease in the fanbase as well. #RIPpeppyjet

Honestly the current state of osu! is already good enough for me. I think how its pretty much ran by the community in terms of beatmaps and forums while still having mods looking over is awesome.

Having all those mainstream gamers from famous toxic games might just ruin the whole community and tarnish the game's reputation. From my point of view, osu! isn't so toxic to the point that the people that heard of the game will immediately say "oh that game with the super toxic community". Look at League of Legends for a great example.

I'm content with the way it is now. :)

I don't find the osu-community to be particularly more toxic than the community of the other games that I've played, given its demographics.

In fact, I see fewer raging/obnoxious people here than in most games, which is probably because this game is in essence a single player game. People can't direct their anger at anyone other than themselves without feeling at least a little bit stupid.

I don't think that making this game really popular would change much in terms of reputation or general tone.
It'd probably just get more crowded without affecting the communities quality much towards the negative.

Recent livestreams by Cookiezi and Reimu brought osu! to the list of top 10 games on twitch, in terms of number of viewers. If this starts to occur more often, then more people will take notice of osu!.

Please, that time has already come. I guesstimate 60% of osu's userbase are former LoL players. The cancer has already reached all vital organs of this game. I remember people saying the exact same thing when there were less than 2 million users. Then bam, in a couple years userbase got increased 300%+

The community might not be toxic, but it's full of children - shallow, ill-mannered and imbecilic ones at that. I'd rather have an immature, yet intelligent asshole kid, than a bunch of kids with half their brain missing, kissing each other's arses virtually because they're being bullied IRL and their parents can't stand their existence, so much so that they don't give two fucks about neither them nor their behaviour.

Also, generalising the LoL community is not all that logical. Osu has only one forum, whilst LoL has one for each region.

P.S. If you change your avatar or your username, I might just come to Sweden and suffocate you in your sleep. :p

Well the current total of players are fine but if osu! still have a chance to growth, why not.
osu! getting popular is not a problem, osu! getting a shitty player(scumbag) is a problem.

Copyright is another problem in the game but right now, it still works fine for most of it. Just keep it update and hope for the best in future.
Stop listing all the bad things, try to find some good ones and enjoy the game. ;)

p/s: what I mean by shitty player is not noob player. just immature player. you get it right

Isn't that osu community in a nutshell?

I was just thinking about changing my username but couldn't think of anything good. Whats so good about it anyway? :/
Aurani
I WAS describing the Osu community. :p

Nay, it goes together incredibly well. Change any aspect of it, and it won't fit anymore.

It may get popular in the future, sadly not too much people likes rhythm games in general.
Ivvy
Maybe it's just me but the nicest people I've met on the internet come from osu!

Assuming wangs and dongs, osu! will eat chips and drink apple juice. Unless of course Bobby Right shows up to ruin the day by talking to Darth Vader.

Don't mind those kiddies and theri dirt racers. Let them have their fun in the sun.

tldr: this thread is so silly.
IppE
You're pretty silly too :3c

I have a problem with people that call threads silly and then leave without any meaningful contribution.

Remember, you are part of the thread. And you can make (well, almost) any topic interesting when you choose to think only a minute about what you write beforehand.

If you think that a thread is silly, its probably just because you either lack the intelligence to make it not silly, or because you didn't bother to make it smart with your contribution.
In the first case you should stop being condescending because you are just making a fool out of yourself.
In the second case, I wonder why you are even here. Just get out and stop wasting my time.

This is peppy, just forget it... >_> He does whatever he wants and gives not a single fuck weter its apporiate or what people might think, hell, he posted that whole people are no longer human if they want to be reffered to with their preffered pronoun in modhelp. Randomly, without any appartent reason.
You're wasting less time with just thinking "He did it again" over posting a rant regarding his behaviour.

He's right you know.

From what I see, looks like osu will have a slower player growth (also slows the growing of toxic communities), many people don't find fun from rhythm game genres, in fast, my school is flooded with DOTA II and CS:GO players, out of x>500 peoples (grade 7 - 12), about 5 people there plays osu, but turns out I'm the only active player, with 2 players visiting a game hour a week and there is alot hype about DOTA II in my school, trading hero sets for real money or some stuffs, betting who will win and go to internet cafe together just to play DOTA II.

And since osu! isn't a "lets play" game like other players mention here...
So... New players won't likely to survive the easy difficulty (instead of choosing beginner diffs which is alot easier) and quit first.

And also because of base of everything here, because it is a japan rhythm game with half of every beatmap which is anime song realted, these will likely to ward anti-weeaboo peoples away (its true), even the song just have a anime background, some will just think the game is a hentai rhythm game.

So summary... The growth will be slow compared to many games out there due to what's inside osu, which is just average but some people out there think it negatively.

I am pretty sure that he wasn't being serious with the pronoun thing. Looked like he exaggerated his irritation about gender-friendly language taken to an extreme. If I understood that correctly, then I actually agree with him in this point. It's very ridiculous.

Other than that.. if people write comments that I don't like, I generally try to call them out on that. The same way, I will compliment or celebrate their comments when I think that they are well thought-out or insightful. Either gives me room to think about why I do or do not agree with what they say and think, so I personally benefit from it too.

I don't actually expect him to make a 180 turn and become the best and most humble person ever. For the most part, I just don't like seeing a comment like his standing alone by themselves without getting criticized for what they are: unnecessary, unhelpful and uninteresting.

No one is making a fool out of themselves but you for going on a big rant about a silly comment. Which was the most interesting post in this otherwise boring thread.

Be glad peppy graced us with his presence.
