actually genryuu kaiko has premanent 1/4's but the sounds are imo not very audible.

I think some person should step in and declare finally what the fuck actually overmapping is.
People speak from overmapping and then both mean different things again. To me 04:26:893 (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) - theres really nothing in the song, I re-heard it like 50 times theres nothing. And that's what I understand of overmapping. Mapping to nothing. If you can explain to which beats or vocal you've mapped to and ppl can understand it afterwards than it's fine.

I partially agree with you on some points. Just work around your map it's not bad by any means. Don't do repulsive changes it doesn't help the map at all. If you feel like your 1/8's belong there just put em there and explain why.

good luck on the map. I love when ppl have their own styles. rip me.

So having skimmed through a bit, I'm not really going to mod this but I just wonder why 03:05:293 (1) - isnt a slider while 01:00:493 (3) - has a slider, and every following patterns like this has sliders instead of a random anti jump. Being consistent is one thing, but this is just a sloppy miss imo.

Furthermore, I actually agree that it needs more modding. This map shows that you are not a very experienced mapper (I don't think it's a bad map, just unpolished, a bit sloppy and unreasonable patterns) and should for the sake of the map seek more mods.

I also think overmapping is fine, even if it's 1/8 slider repeats to enhance something that would do well with an enhancement.


Also don't give me kd, whatever you choose to do.

This dialogue kinda makes sense here

Man look...

You don't rly have to rank a map... noone is forcing you...

One thing we all learned in school was to respect eachother. Just like respecting eachothers opinoins (to an extent). But when we talk about the interpretation of a work of art be it a piece of music, a prose text or a poem things become quite different. Interpreting somthing should be based around the work of art we are dealing with. All the statements should be made according to logical conclusions from the orginal work, which means even tho there are countles interpretations there is just one (or rarely a few) which is (are) more "right" then all the others. Does this mean you are wrong? By all means NO... but you arent right either... noone can be. Infact you can only get close to the "truth" with your interpretation (or theory) until someone falsifies it. Depending on the extent you have to either modify it or simply dismiss it completely.

I will make this following statement only after havin looked through your map in the editor once:

IF your interpretation looks "flawed" or not "quite there yet" in the eyes of clearly more experienced ppl, then you should reconcider what you are doing here. NOONE wants to fuck your shit up. NOONE will gain anything from that. All these ppl modding and giving suggestions do it because they love doing this: mapping songs and helping others.

IF you dont like these opinions... then just don't rank it man. As you stated
"Leaving the map as it is, letting it die slowly and get to the beatmap graveyard (no worries you can still download and play those)"
Your map will stll be there. The map will still be there w/o it being "molested" by all those "rude" opinions. (a map will "die" regardless of being ranked or in the graveyar)

I think of the whole ranking proccess like this: Narrowing down the best possible outcome with the current mapset. If that isnt possible then it just wont be ranked (or end up a shitty ranked map, but when was the last time you saw a truly "shitty" map)

if you cant accept that then just dont rank it man.

Sidenote: I am not telling you to blindly follow everything ppl say. Stand by your opinion, but learn to let go aswell.
In the end of the day, we all just want to pass by feeling happy or something :)

(sorry for spelling mistakes its late over here)

I have to strongly disagree here, there's nothing I despise more than modding a map :D I'm just here because it's almost 3 am & I saw a post on reddit.

i was more talking about the all the ppl attempting to mod the map before his mild rant.

On the other hand you are not rly trying to do him any harm either, which is what i tried to emphasise by calling out all the possible good intentions someone would have modding this (in other words: ppl who give a fuck).

Ye i saw it too and then my hands started typing... wierd thing rly.

its late

btw 04:17:893 (1,1) - i can't rly get behind it. What exactly made him make those ugly sliders. This beautiful song can't possible evoke these unworldly shapes in ones head.

You're arguing over spilled milk.

If so many people with a large amount of experience agree there's something wrong, then there's probably something wrong.

As Smokeman said, nobody is forcing you to rank this. No matter how well it plays or sounds or whatever, if it doesn't abide by the strict requirements of the ranking process, there's not much you can do, no matter how hard you whine.

This is a more polite way to tell him to go fuck himself. No more of that please. He makes a point about double standards and favoritism, and that is something to be addressed, regardless of him wanting to rank a map or not.

ok, so let me entangle that.
- When we interpret art, the interpretation should be based on the original and it should be linked to it through logic
- There are countless interpretations
- Some are more right than others
- You aren't wrong
- You aren't right
- Nobody can be right
- you are right until you are falsified
- the one who falsified you is more right than you, hence why you have to follow his lead and change your interpretation that is not right and not wrong, so you can make it more right, except nobody can be right in the first place, although the one who falsified you is more right than you. It should also be logical.

I don't even know what you were getting at with that, honestly. That whole paragraph is a contradictory mess.

Now this is something I can get behind. Listen to experience, for it most likely knows better than you do.
The second thing you said is disagreeable again though. People gain something from fucking shit up, and if you observe them for a bit you see that very clearly. They have personal grudges, suck up to other people, or just enjoy their power. They defend their own opinions vigorously once they are out instead of backing down in an argument, because nothing is harder than admitting that you were wrong. That can lead to pretty nasty situations, where the one with less power has no other option left than following along. Generally, there can be plenty of reasons why people fuck shit up. Not to say that QAT's are essentially evil, but they aren't angels either. They are human, and humans tend to be unfair every once in a while. You got to look out for that, and not deny it by saying "but they don't have nothing to gain".

My intention with this overmapped pattern is to create the emphasizition I felt necessary in the last kiai, I don't really think it was overdone at all, perhaps I could've put some flavor with hitsounds. Most of the 1/8 were intended to do the same around the map.

Because it doesn't really matter? I felt like using this pattern in this part just because it felt right to me, both of those patterns work for the song and there's no real reason to exclude the use of one of them.

If you want to point some more thoughts, please do, I am pretty firm about my thoughts but I do look for others'.

That's kinda ironic, because even though Loctav posted this, the main points in his post still persisted and HW got the beatmap ranked. I should note that some QATs were thinking that the map was just fine after the first rank, however it got dq again and again, HW still maintained most of her subjective stuff, and it still got ranked.

Now a new issue rises: One QAT might find the map great and good, yet an other will say it's unpolished, unkrankable or anything else, where is the border line, who decides, are some QAT members better than others?

Had only Genryuu Kaiko wasn't ranked in the end, I wouldn't even write this post, you could clearly see the change of thoughts and the different opinions in that thread, it's just.. I don't know, weird?

As for everything else I pretty much agree with the other people that responded to your comment.

Avishay's comment honestly just feels like someone who is salty for getting their maps rejected and is trying to blame the system instead of changing their maps. Sure, the system is not perfect, but, that is why its moderated by people who have experience in what they are doing. Also, the bias you speak of is not a bias but an element of trust and mapper's knowledge - Hollow Wings can get such original maps ranked because she has the knowledge to justify doing so (a knowledge she gained through experience)

Relevant username.

Eitherway, element of trust and mapper's knowledge? Sounds like complete nonsense, it becomes irrelevant when you invent new stuff. I am salty and my posts explains why, I still cannot accept the statement 'experience in what they are doing', like hell, I know I am not the best mapper in the community, but I am not inexperienced at all as well, I have put thought in almost everything I do and it is justified through play.

And the bias comes by the fact that other people are allowed to do so, while me or other people with the same issue are not.

Along with the saltiness I did raise some points that are general, is that wrong?

But anyway, what is the solution to my case? Fixing the issues stated in the mods? Although imo they don't really matter since they don't affect the gameplay at all? Honest question.

word of advice from someone who has gone through map drama: stop posting.

take a day or two, recollect your thoughts and stop getting caught up in the moment. this doesn't need to get solved right this minute. be patient, take a step back, and look at your map again. you'll either find: a. some of the points raised are valid and can be worth taking into account or b. you'll be able to come up with better and more concrete reasons for doing things other than "this is my style" or "x mapper did it so why can't i"

But it does matter and it does affect gameplay. If it didn't, I wouldn't have taken my precious neet time to try and explain this to you. You can't use a consistent pattern on 9/10 parts and then when the same part comes up again you decide to "feel" and leave it blank, making an anti jump. Does that make sense to you? Can you explain your pattern without saying you felt it was "ok"?
If both patterns work fine then why are you doing one pattern for all but one of those parts? Why are you being so stubborn about something so incredibly unnecessary?

The response you gave me + the fact that you don't even know or try to understand what other people find to be bad/sloppy about your map when they explain it only fortifies my statement. Your map just screams inexperienced and you need to get your head out of the gutter bro. Because even though I say I find it inexperienced, I do think you have some cool and somewhat original ideas going on as well, so don't get defensive when I try to help you please.


Again, I hate modding

The stuff you are saying do make sense, it's like that because the pattern overall was different, a note used to exist at 03:05:218, but I removed it due to the DQ, regardless if I wanted to have it or not. But honestly, the patterns at 00:59:293 (1) - and 03:04:093 (1) - are completely different, is there a reason to use the same slider? The latter is more intense and has bigger spacing, how is it mandatory to do the same as before, how does it feel bad playing? I would understand if those patterns were identical excluding that slider..

I'll take captin's advice for now.

No, This is a more polite way of telling him to take a min to chill. I tell him that because in the end of the day he wont gain anything from ranking his map but the feeling of self accomplishment (and internet fame for a day or two). Yes he recaps all of the ranking proccess we have so far and tries to blend in some perpective. I am not denying that. It's just that i was more concerned about the way he viewed criticism from other mappers than the whole ranking drama process every once in a while.

damn it was too late for that shit yesterday... Hope i can rephrase it

- interpretation or Statemnts based on logical conlusions from the piece of art
- As many interpretations as there are ppl and time in the world BUT...
- when i talk about "more right" i meant more logical or more grounded in that regard
- being less grounded doesnt mean you aren't wrong
- but being more grounded makes the interpretation more "believable" (or acceptable)
- which means, if you look at an interpretation which is more believabe than one which takes 4 detours around the work of art to make a statement.
- That doesnt mean you can interpret what ever you feel like. If the logical conclusion is wrong, well this just leads to a wrong interpretation.
- OK now i fucked up: i tried to tie in the definition of the scientific method... (fml it was late) I wanted to get to the point where even a logic based interpretation can be wrong, but when that happens you dont simply dismiss it (again depends on the severity of the problem). problem is this doesnt apply well on mapping so lets just forget that.

IMO the system isnt corrupt. I am also a strong believer of everyone speaking out his thoughts. I got surprised you read that sentiment out of the post tho (i was quite shoked dude).

to genralize: a ranked map is the same as any other map. A couple of ppl just took some time to look at it and gave it some rankings and tagged it as "ranked". So in the core a ranked map is the same as a graveyarded map. But To get this nice tag with the score boards you need to be ready for criticism from the community. If you think these ppl are assholes and only aim to harm you, then why the fuck would you want that useless tag. Why would you want to gift this shitty community your masterpiece. But if you think these ppl have the intention of helping you make your map better then accepting their opinions about your product shouldn't be a issue. The process rly isnt that difficult either. You post, they mod, you evaluate, BNs evaluate, and if all goes well.. voilà it is ranked and everyone is happy.
