First off, I didnt check the map or read the thread beforehand, so Im just purely answering to the text below. Im also assuming that it's a "standard" kind of map.you are correct, but the point being made here is that at a certain point the AR of the map should be up to mapper's interpretation and honestly shouldn't be a DQ reason at all lol

I've seen it used on far easier maps than this.I honestly dont think that things under 4.5ish* can be "surely/100%" AR9. It always depends on the density and overlaps and stuff, but really, the patterns cant be so difficult that you'd need AR9 on 4.11*. Even if it is 189 BPM, give it a try on 8.5 or 8.8 if neccessary. More people will be able to play it and it'll also be much more enjoyable on DT.
Though, I'd agree that that's a bit over the top to DQ over the AR.
As I said, I didnt check the map, but I wanted to answer to that. Give AR8.5-8.8 a try and be a bit more open to that.
the map plays fine and not forced for what it is at AR9, if monstrata wants to keep it like that he shouldn't be forced to change it.
