First off: complaining about how an outside community sees osu in osu's forums is hilariously pointless.

Second: osu! has a reputation for having a bad community (have you ever looked at the rest of the forum, or #osu? it's enough to make me gag on the stupidity sometimes) Osu! was generally seen as a complete joke in terms of actual rhythm games by most outside communities.

Third: There are legitimate problems with osu!mania, so it's not much of a surprise that people would hate on it. Nothing is more annoying than seeing a game you consider flat out bad pick up a growing community while your own game of choice seems to be slowly dieing out (stepmania has been around a long time now, and has seen it's community dwindle over the past years).

In short: this thread was completely pointless. If you want to complain, feel free to head over to FFR and see what happens (hint, this is not a good idea).

as a serious response


I mean, I have NEVER seen an osu!mania talk badly towards a Stepmania player as the occasional rude one does to us, and I have never seen any osu!mania players who dislike Stepmania to the point of anger.
you don't know where most players come from nor can you make the assumption that every player who is mean 2 u :( is from Stepmania


considering you're the only one who thought making a thread like this was a good idea means you don't know this community well enough to justify it being made


you also seem to be getting irrationally mad at "stepmania players" and that's silly given how often other players from other games come here and complain about how bad osumania is

yeah i agree tbh

stepmania is a festering shithole of people with mental health issues and elitists that can't accept anything with LONG nTOes

remove stepmania, thank you for bringing this to the attention of the osu!!!mAbnia community :D

There are 3 kinds of people:

- Stepmania fa*s
- LR2/O2jam fa*s
- osu!mania fa*s
- and space time lovers

I play osu from time to time and enjoy it when playing good charts but the game has its flaws that keeps me from playing it as much as other games.

If you want to defend osu, here are its upsides:
1. very easy to use map editor
2. built-in irc client + multiplayer with servers
3. map uploading server
4. ability to spectate other players

All of those are things that other rhythm games tend to lack and I'd love if they had them.

However osu has downsides in other aspects such as:

1. very limited skinning
2. default and cap map settings that lead to bad habits and hurt improvement rate
3. low mapping standards
4. immature community

All of those downsides sometimes make osu frustrating to play or talk about with others, but if you simply ignore all the annoying people and only play with friends, ignore all the shitty maps and only play the good ones, use logical map settings and try to play well, and find a decent skin, then osu can feel like a pretty alright game that's fun to spend time on.

So there you go. Here's a fair criticism. Now quit 4K because it's shit, come play 7K and join LR2. we have cookies, you'll be overjoyed.

osu! is just more player friendly. It's like having autoaim in shooter games. Thats why it's taken as a joke. Where the players come from, stepmania, o2jam, or LR2, you dont get the friendly game mechanics mania has.


In a nutshell:
Imagine playing shooter game with no gui and a shooter game with gui and autoaim.

he's probably talking about mashing being easy, clearing being easy and the way that long notes work.
