I guess no one bothers because everyone just blacks their screen and turns off video because otherwise it would be a waste of pp. There's a similar stigma with low ar.
Oh, this community hating anything out of their comfort zone is certainly nothing new. The one time I experimented with small circles it got bombed to the bottom page of all maps with one star ratings!

Can't compete with this work of genius, though https://osu.ppy.sh/s/21145

Going from that topic, have their been any recent Ranked maps that are similar to the likes of all these great beauties here?

Oh man I completely forgot about Baby Crusing Love. That's hilarious.

And Songsmith is an incredible program of course. Thanks osu! for bringing the beautiful art I made through it to thousands of people.

2015 osu! just has no inspiration man.

the "old times was better" syndrome is truly omnipresent

but i agree that the community was less cringy back then

Hi.

Also 2011-2013 osu! wasn't so cancertastic. At least #modhelp and OT wasn't anyways.

It's still funny how the rest of the BEMANI community shits on osu! though.

Doesn't that imply that osu! is somehow a part of the BEMANI community?

They are a pretty tight knit community and the popularity of osu! has led more people to find them. It's hilarious when some lose their shit over people calling a chart a map.

what does a guy have to do to get one of those sweet alumni tags around here

And I should add, I know I come across as a bitter oldfag to say stuff like this but I know that if you showed me 5 years ago what osu! looks like know it'd seem like some sort of weird dystopia. Every single map is done in that horrible style with no regard for music that was always controversial back then but by this stage it's become completely homogeneous. And we always joked about how every map is anime but there's less variety than ever now.

Again I know people always thing the past was better, but really, is there any chance of a group of people in the community making something as mind bogglingly awesome as, say, 'Don't Stop Me Now'?

While I do respect you as a mapper who've done way more to this community than most people, I have to wholeheartedly disagree with this. I know it's your opinion, but that's what nostalgia does to someone. It messes with what's objectively good and makes the memories take over.

I started mapping in 2012, and that's a year where some of the best maps in my opinion were made. I do realize that a lot of maps these days are just anime oriented songs, TV Sizes etc, but every once in a while you'll come across maps that completely blow you away with its cheer creativity and complex structure. Some of which couldn't be made 3-4 years ago because this way of mapping hadn't really flourished yet. For me personally, it seems I've only now in 2015 started to make the best maps I've done. Mappers continously evolve and get better with their understanding of mapping in general.

Keep your eyes open and you'll see some cool shit dude 8-)

edit: just adding some examples of outstanding maps:

https://osu.ppy.sh/s/173288
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/90784
https://osu.ppy.sh/s/186911 a bit controversial, but plays really well

https://osu.ppy.sh/s/140945 this map doesn't have a storyboard but it reflects the song so perfectly, and plays incredible.

A lot of my personal favorite maps are from 2011-2012, but I have to judge stuff for what they are, not how they made me feel 4 years ago when I played them.

Well 'Kung-Fu Empire' was very impressive at least, I hadn't seen that one. Map wise it's very samey though, you know? Just in that same style that every map seems to have been in for years now. And new mappers see it and think 'oh, so this is how I can make a map people will like' and keep that stagnant cycle going. I do definitely think there's potential for things to be rejuvenated, and I'd be really happy if that happened, it's just not happening at the moment.

But still, nice storyboard when it wasn't tanking my laptop's FPS.
