Your playcount doesn't affect your performance.You got a point abouth me tho
You try too hard.
Instead of aiming at improving so much, try focusing on playing for fun. Just play the game, and the training will happen overtime.
I've been playing for 5 years or more now. Been stuck at level 97 for 2 of those years, never gave up because the game was fun, and ended up beating my records.
If you focus on the performance, you'll lose the purpose of the game, which is rythm. Now, I'm not a pro player, but I find it sad that people seek score and performance over just "being able to keep up the rythm". Think of your game as a music instrument. Playing your instrument only practicing the technique will do you no good. You need to feel the music too.
Know what I mean ? :3
