When I map kicksliders, I prefer to think of them as just circles with a tail attached. They are very useful for creating short breaks in between stream sections of a map if you want to keep intensity without making the map too dense with 32+note streams.
That's exactly the situation where they shouldn't be used! Sliders are supposed to be held by definition
streams with kicksliders are like the best patterns in the game. Really satisfying to play and makes for more creative patterns than just a stream.
EDIT: They have to be used properly though. I generally only use a sliders mid stream to enhance a strong note or a shift in the music or what it may be.
